Last week I posted a recipe for Homemade Liquid Laundry soap– to accompany this, I’ve also experimented with The Duggars Inexpensive Fabric Softener Recipe. Below […]

Super bowl has never really been a huge deal for my household, but we always love a good excuse to have friends over and munch on grub all day. This year, we are hosting my husband’s brother and his wife (and son!) from the Midwest so I’ve decided to start rounding up some ideas for […]

How To Make Ice Eggs

My Repurposed Life: Desk Repurposed

14 Jan

In the guest room where we put the friendship quote, we also added this vinyl: “Always remember that if you fall […]

Buffalo Ranch Chicken Dip

9 Jan

When we lived in Missouri this dip was incredibly popular at parties. Every party or gathering I attended had it. I loved it, but I didn’t realize how much until I moved to rural Arizona and found NO ONE knows what Buffalo Ranch Chicken Dip is!!!! Very disappointing. So I did some research, practiced and […]

Laugh So Hard |Vinyl|
