October Calmbox

Happy Fall, everyone! I love this time of year 🙂 The chillier temperatures mean its boot season and time for fires in the fireplace. It’s also a time when life seems to start to slow down a little bit. I was excited to see what this month’s Calmbox theme would be and what wonderful things would help usher in this next season. Ready to see?

Recipe ~ Honey Beer Bread

Today was a beautiful fall day. The sun was shining and there was a slight chill in the air. We went to the pumpkin patch and spent some time with my mom. Once we got home, I decided it was the perfect day to make some honey beer bread. It makes the house smell so good while it’s baking and tastes good too!

Window Wall

You know that feeling when you check off items on a list? That giddy, elated feeling that one more thing is done? It’s wonderful isn’t it? 🙂 That’s how I’m feeling lately. We have been going gangbusters working on projects these past few weeks and the house is coming together more and more each day. One project that we just finished was adding windows and a frame to our kitchen wall. It’s a huge floor-to-ceiling wall and needed something quite big to fill the space.  I took some old windows, wood from up north, and a photo to create a wonderful display 🙂

DIY Outdoor Lighting

I’ve been pinning ideas from Pinterest for outdoor lighting since before we even bought our new house. I knew that I was going to incorporate these ideas in some way or another and was so excited to see that our home had the perfect area!

Pinterest FAIL ~ Balsamic Roasted Carrots

I’m trying something new today, being completely open about a recipe I tried and failed at miserably. I debated about even posting it, but I figure this whole cooking thing is a learning process. My husband always asks if I found the recipe on Pinterest and I think that’s his easy way of being able to say he doesn’t like it or want to try it. He doesn’t realize they are still real recipes!! I want to state right here and now that I didn’t follow the recipe exactly and that’s probably why I ate one bite of mine and threw it away. I’m sure if I would have followed it properly, mine would have been just as yummy as these sounded and looked.

31 Days to a Clutter Free Life by Ruth Soukup ~ CHALLENGE Post 1

EM Photography

Hello! Welcome to my journey through the best organizing book I’ve found yet. 31 Days to a Clutter Free Life is exactly what I need as we continue to unpack and organize our life. Each day has an area of the home to organize or task to be completed to help regain control of the clutter and use the space more effectively. I found that as I’m working on one task, I tend to be working on another one without even realizing it! Each time I’m complete a task I’m going to share my before and after photos and what I did to get more organized.
