Honey BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

Honey BBQ Chicken Sandwiches

I’ve been on a summer food kick recently. You probably realized that since over the last few weeks I shared ice cream and popsicle recipes. Part of summer cooking, in my opinion, does not include spending much time cooking. I would rather whip up quick and simple meals that allow more time to be spent outside with family! And the recipe I’m sharing today is definitely one of those recipes! It is so easy to make with a big flavor payoff! Without further adieu… Honey BBQ Chicken Sandwiches.

Dresser Turned Media Stand

Dresser Turned Media Stand

Ok people. These are the types of projects I have been dying to do! Long before I had this little ole blog I was dying to makeover some furniture. I’ve been dying to sand and paint to my little heart’s content. But living in an apartment made that really hard. So now that we have a house, I am in project heaven! My first big furniture makeover was a Dresser Turned Media Center! Warning! This is a picture heavy post.

Copycat Pudding Popsicles

TGIF! It is almost time for a 3 day weekend! Yippee! That means some quality time with the hubby! And because it is Memorial Day we also get to see some great fireworks. I love me some fireworks. Any of you have grand plans for this holiday weekend??

Copycat Pudding Popsicles

Have you noticed that the past 2 weeks I’ve been on an ice cream/popsicle kick. I think it is the beautiful 70 and 80 degree days we’ve been having. That combined with all the work I’ve been doing outside, I’m loving me some popsicles! One of my all time favorite popsicles as a kid was Jello pudding pops. I love them. In effort to get back in touch with my inner child, I decided to venture to make these delicious Copycat Pudding Popsicles.

The Easy Way To Hang Your Curtains

I have a confession: when we first moved into the house almost a month ago. I had no clue what I wanted as far as decor and design goes. I know, I know. A DIY blogger not knowing what kind of style she likes!? What!?! Well, it’s true. I have always tried to make the decor of our home work within the confines of where we live. And for the past several years that has been apartments. Boring, beige, standard apartments. So when we moved in to the new house where I could do anything I wanted, I was in a big of a decor shock. What do I want!? I had/have no clue. I didn’t want to be super trendy for fear of hating it in 2 years! So I was afraid to commit to anything {with the exception of paint, I knew I loved gray.. but apparently I didn’t know what shade of gray I loved} and that included curtains.

The Easy Way To Hang Your Curtains

As many people will tell you when you move, you should always make sure you have bedding and bathing supplies available immediately. Most people also tell you to have curtains immediately. I didn’t. I was afraid to commit! I didn’t buy them until we had lived in our home for a week. We would sit in the living room at night to veg and watch a little TV. Suddenly, I knew what it felt like to be on reality TV. Dark night, lights on in the house, and no curtains? Yup, everyone could see our every move. I started calling it the “Fishbowl Effect”. I was imagining all kinds of creepy pervs lining up to stand outside our house. Eww. It was awful.

So my mom and I skipped off to Ikea and bought some beautiful Rivta curtains that are nice and super long! We also bought a nice and long curtain rod. I don’t love extendable rods because they always seem to sag in the middle, but this one was long enough to fit over the window without extending. SCORE! And then the dreaded chore… hanging the curtains. I almost always ended up with multiple holes in the walls. So instead, I figured out the easy way to hang your curtains! And because I’m so nice, I’ll let you in on the little secret.
