Fun Finds {Moss Balls}


The other day I was on Amazon looking for something when Amazon said “Hey, Stace, I bet you would like these moss balls!” And I thought, “Amazon, you know me pretty well. We’ve been through a lot together. You have always been so good to me. Why would you think I wanted moss balls. What […]

Parenting and Technology

technology and kids

My kids are growing up in a world so different than from when I was growing up. I remember growing up and listening to my Walkman while mowing the lawn.  While I belted out the lyrics to Randy Travis’s Forever And Ever Amen,  I was thinking how cool it was to be able to listen to music while […]

Wood Slice {Styled X3}


Wahoo! It is time for my favorite series. I purposely have the participating bloggers NOT tell me what they did because I want to be just as surprised as you. The ladies that are helping me this month are SO FANTASTIC and I covet their stylish homes so I know they are going to knock our […]

Topography Inspired Planter

Did anyone else have to create a topography map in school growing up? I remember cutting cardboard with an X-acto knife into dozens of oblong shapes and gluing them together. I can’t remember what made me think of it the other day, but I started to think about how topography maps are really cool to […]

Metal Projects


My blogging friend Laura from Finding Home Farms is tall, sassy and one of the kindest people I have ever met. She is also ridiculously talented.

10 At Home Date Ideas for Valentine’s Day


For the majority of our 16 year marriage Shane and I have had stay-at-home date nights almost every weekend. Whether it was because we lacked babysitters, or our budget only allowed for one night out a month, or just out of pure “I don’t feel like going out” laziness, over the years we have come […]

Citrus Hot Drink


Do you have certain recipes that you only make at certain times of the year? Are there certain foods that remind you of your childhood? My mom used to make this hot drink for us in the winter. She found the recipe and started using it for when we had a sore throat or our […]

A Home For All The Little Random Things….


There’s something about the beginning of a new year that makes us all want to try and get our stuff together so when the theme for this month’s Better Homes and Garden’s (BHG at Walmart) post was organization, it totally made sense. Our home does not have many closets. Older homes rarely do. It had two […]

Gingerbread Houses and a Family Update


I have a love/hate relationship with Christmas break. Of course I love that my kids are home from school but because it is winter time (and cold and snowy) the kids have limited time they can spend outside and therefore they get pent up energy. A week in and they all want to pummel  each other […]
