Dining Room Makeover (Part 1) – Choosing the Perfect Paint Colors + GIVEAWAY!!!

Dining Room Makeover (Part 1)

Blah. That’s what I think when I see my dining room in its current state. It hasn’t undergone any real transformations except that I painted it the first week we moved in. I basically threw my grandmother’s hutch and my 120+ year old mahogany table in there and called it a day. I haven’t even put up blinds or curtains or anything…. “Hello neighbors! Don’t pay any attention to the lady who wears yoga pants all day everyday!” And I guess it isn’t necessarily even a dining “room” as much as a large eat-in kitchen area.

No Bake Energy Bites

No Bake Energy Bites

Once upon a time, life got really really ridiculously good looking busy. Princess Talitha wished life could slow down so she could, you know, eat… and stuff. But, alas, life refused Talitha’s request and forged ahead, twice as fast as before. Queue me entering, stage left, doing 2 room makeovers/facelifts in 4 weeks. PLUS prepping the house for guests. PLUS doing crazy amounts of yard work to keep the snakes at bay.

By the time my mom got here this past Saturday, I was exhausted. She told me about this great recipe for a little pick-me-up that was packed full of great proteins. Twenty minutes later I had these delicious no bake energy bites!

How-To: Install Cabinet Drawer Pulls

Hi guys!! Hi! How was your weekend? Our was very busy and also low key. The pup got spayed on Friday so we tried to keep thing calm to allow her time to heal. But you know me, I had to sneak a DIY or 3 in when I could! ;)

How-to: Install Cabinet Drawer Pulls

Anywho, last week you saw our gorgeous new cabinet door knobs. Now I’m finally getting around to sharing how to install cabinet drawer pulls. Let me start by saying that I expected installing drawer pulls on to be just as easy as door knobs. Sure, there is an extra hole needed and make sure it is level, but come on… how hard can it be? That phrase is the kiss of death for DIYs, isn’t it? Installing cabinet drawer pulls isn’t hard… it can  just go wrong if you don’t do it correctly. Don’t ask me how I know. ;)

Baked Sweet & Sour Chicken

Guys! I had no clue you could make good Chinese food at home. Forget good. I didn’t even know you could make half-way decent Chinese food at home. I tried once. Yeah. Once. That should tell you how it went. Suffice it to say that we made a fast food run that night. I haven’t even attempted since. That was more than 2 years ago.

Baked Sweet & Sour Chicken

The other day I plucked up the courage to try again, pulled on my big girl panties, and gave it another go. And guess what, a HUGE raging success!! I can’t even get over how amazingly delicious this baked sweet & sour chicken is! I haven’t been able to have the sweet and sour chicken at my favorite Chinese place ever since I went gluten-free (more on that another time) so the fact that this stuff uses cornstarch and is 100% gluten-free made my day!
