Moving…

I’ve been a bad girl.  Very bad. No posting for too long. But it’s for a good reason – – We’ve moved! Well we are in the process of moving.  Most of our stuff is in our new house but there’s still a few car loads we need to bring over from my brother-in-law’s where we temporarily lived for 7 months.  We have had a few fights with our cable/internet…

Montage Book

What to do with all the non-professional pictures from your wedding weekend or anything else important to you. Instagram has blown up so much over the last year.  Personally, I think hashtags is one of the reasons.  I love a good hashtag.  I loved having a hashtag for our wedding weekend because I was able to see the weekend from other people’s point of view.  The day after the wedding, P…

Monday Inspiration

Happy Monday! I added a few decorations to my office last week. I’ve been looking for a motivational quote to inspire me while I’m at work. I finally found the quotes I was looking for and put a metallic gold washi border around it.  I sit directly in front of them with my computer screen off to the left a little.  If I can’t have a window – I’ll happily…

Naked Wines

My husband is a craft beer drinker.  Anyone who knows him knows this.  Because of him I am lucky enough to only drink the best beers which I love and appreciate.  But my go to beverage is wine; red wine, white wine, pink wine, and bubbly wine. Lately I’ve ordered cases of wine through NakedWines.com.  I first used them when I needed a mixed case of wine for the post party after our…

Rose Dome Arrangement

I love having fresh flowers in the house.  I usually go for tall bouquets with mixed flowers that I have in the center of the dinner table.  But when I say these roses at Trader Joe’s(!)  I couldn’t pass them up.  At first I planned to leave the stems long and put the purples in the bedroom and the “raw sugar” in the bathroom but when I held them together…

How To Display Your Own Wifi Password

Do you have a Wifi Password that’s a million characters long?  Is your Wifi password on a sticker on the back of your router that’s almost impossible to each when your friends come over and ask it?  We used to take a picture of it but then have to search through all our pictures or texts to find it when someone needed it.  Well I have an easy and house friendly…
