Revamp An Old Sofa!!

Revamp An Old Sofa!!

I have a serious love for mid-century modern design, actually I have a serious love for all things 1950’s-1970’s, minus the oppression…it started as far back as I can remember, my Grannie Annie had a few pieces of gorgeous MCM pieces and cute kitsch decor. During one of my Mad Men binges on Netflix I was inspired to add some MCM pieces to my house, since I live in a house built in 1954 I thought it would be cute…

Kims Spaghetti Casserole

Kims Spaghetti Casserole

This recipe has been in my life since I was a teenager. A close friend of our family gifted it to me at my bridal shower and it’s been a staple in my repertoire ever since.   It’s easy and is such a crowd pleaser! It isn’t vegan friendly but you could probably adjust the ingredients to suit your needs. Not only is this recipe amazing the first night…it’s even better as leftovers after the flavors get to know each…

Lettuce Boat Taco Recipe

Lettuce Boat Taco Recipe

I love tacos! They are the perfect blend of flavors and you can mix and match toppings to suit your tastes. Everyone in the house is happy and we rarely have left overs on taco night. Of course, now that I am eating “clean”, I have to think twice about all my meals, including tacos. I use the term loosely because everyone has a different definition of what that means. To me, eating clean means cutting out the following: added sugar, added…

Taco Seasoning Recipe

Taco Seasoning Recipe

One night I was making tacos and realized that I had forgotten to buy taco seasoning. I had already started preparing the meal, so I had to improvised! Honestly, I had never really thought about what was in taco seasoning, just that it was delicious! Honestly, have you ever considered what is in those tiny packets of taco seasoning? As it turns out, it is so much healthier (and cheaper) to make your own! Although, this is my go to blend of flavoring for…

Beginners Running

I’m a self proclaimed “foodie”. Not the boojee kind of foodie though. I just like to eat…tacos, pizza, cheeseburgers, meatballs, spaghetti casserole (recipe coming soon!)…my all-time favorite is chips and dip recipes. The problem with my foodie trait is that most of the time I don’t burn enough of the calories to keep the muffin top down. That’s where I decided that I need to at least begin exercising. Then I can make the adjustments to my diet as I…

Worst Tooth Fairy Ever!

Worst Tooth Fairy Ever!

So, I don’t know about the Tooth Fairy in your neighborhood, but ours sucks! She is forgetful, she is usually cheap, and she is not very stealthy. Like most relationships it started off well, and then slowly went downhill… Our first encounter with the Tooth Fairy was about 3 years ago when Hailey was 5. She had just lost her first tooth, and then she legitimately lost her tooth! We couldn’t find it anywhere! So, she left a note for the Tooth Fairy under…

$400 on Meat

$400 on Meat

    …so there we were, young and poor. Fresh into our marriage, ya know when you still fix yourself up a little bit before they get home (change out of pajama pants and into sweat pants)? That fresh. We were about to take a road trip to visit family for the holidays. I was just finishing up last minute house cleaning, because if there’s anything I can’t stand it’s coming home to a dirty house, and there was a…

Fresh Squeezed Lemonade

Fresh Squeezed Lemonade

Ever wake up and have the craving for fresh squeezed lemonade? No? Me neither! But apparently the small humans that live in my household do and they will beg ALLLL day until I finally break and let the word slip out, “OK”.     Wait… No! I meant no! Inside I start panicking…     But I’ve already said it. Those two letters that are a binding contract for small dictators. “OK…” I say again defeated.   So it begins. We hand…

Kim’s Chicken and Shrimp Fried Rice

Kim’s Chicken and Shrimp Fried Rice

  I seriously make this at least once a week in our house. We love it. Of course it isn’t the same as the yummy Japanese Hibachi restaurants…but nothing ever is. And the best part….it is insanely easy to make and pretty inexpensive!! All of the sauces can be bought in a traditional grocery store, I got them all in the international section at Food Lion. I’m sorry I don’t really have measurements, I just dump shit in and go…
