Must-Have Boots For Fall

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Payless. All opinions are 100% mine. I took a trip to Las Vegas a couple weeks ago for a conference for work. Before we had kids, my husband and I would frequent Vegas at least twice a year, and stay for at least a week each and every time. I love Las Vegas because of the nightlife, the lights, the shows, the energy, the food. . .and the shopping. While {Read More}

Peanut Butter Pumpkin Dog Treats

You guys!! I’m in Vegas this week for a conference, so my blogland presence has been a bit sketchy. My apologies. I had fun this morning attending a session with Barbara Corcoran and Robert Jerjavec from ABC’s Shark Tank.

This morning Barbara was talking about running a successful business, and she said the key to great success is “having fun.” I absolutely {Read More}

Fall Decorating with Pumpkins

Fall is just around the corner and I’m starting to think about how I want to decorate the outside of my home this year. Last year was all about dressing up my pumpkins and I plan to do more of that this year. One of the easiest ways to dress up your pumpkins are with decals and what I call “poke and push-ins.” I try to keep the pumpkins from rotting and getting soft for as long as possible so I {Read More}

Autumn Subway Art Round-Up (FREE PRINTABLES!)

  It’s only Mid-August and I can already “smell” fall. Believe it or not, some leaves on trees around the area here are even starting to turn. I can’t say I’m absolutely ready for this. What happened to the summer?   Don’t get me wrong, I do love autumn. I love driving in the country to see all of the wagons and trailers on the side of the road selling their pumpkins and gourds. I love all of the craft {Read More}
