Memorial Day, Seniors, and staph infections...

Crazy title, huh? It pretty much summarizes what's been going around at my house! The boys and I had a great Memorial Day weekend despite venturing it sans Daddy and Auntie! The pool provided hours of fun and release for the kiddos and to my surprise wasn't too crowded. In the midst of tha…

Unforgettable Bruschetta

I made this once then had to go get more ingredients because I craved it so badly the next day. Yep, its that good. Your welcome, recipe here.

An unexpected outfit

Our date nights have been pretty far and few between with husband's crazy schedule, but last night my sister treated us to a night out and somehow I threw these two colors together and it worked! Mint green and carmel brown, who knew?!

Clickin for a cause {photography workshop that fights injustice}

So excited to finally announce a photography workshop! This photography workshop was put together out of Mom's asking me how to work all the buttons on their camera! I am in no way a professional, but have spent countless hours online pouring over how to work my DSLR camera in hopes of getting…
