5 for the road: May is the new December

Goodness gracious is May like the new December? It seems so busy to me. Teacher appreciation, graduation parties, and year end parties, exams just seem so busy! I am so looking forward to lazy-no-alarm-clock days of summer. I’m trying to get as much as I can done for Homearama so that there is no last-minute rushing and everything is in it’s place. I’m working on a few DIY artwork for the home. I’m hoping to light up social media world with this house….and I’m praying that you guys will help me with that! I hope that you are having a good end of school year and have a great weekend ahead.

Have you tried this pb2 product?

Teeny Tiny Bathroom

Hey guys! We are full steam ahead on operation “add the tiny bathroom” at the beach house. My dad is meeting with our contractor to go over the size and be sure we have enough room to fit what we want to fit. I wanted to share with you the items that I selected for this bathroom. Our goal here was to place a wall sink alongside a toilet in a small four by four corner in the guest bedroom. What is there right now is a long 6 foot by 2 foot closet. Since we are using most of that closet for this new bathroom we will be left with a small 2 foot space for shelving/clothing storage..which will be plenty. I wanted to share with you some of the products that I found to use in case you are looking to add a small bathroom in your own home.

How to Grill a Frozen Pizza

Hey yall! Did you have the Derby winner? We did not…but we had a complete blast at the Derby this year. The entire week was horrible weather….but Derby day was beautiful! I hope you had a restful Mother’s Day….here is an easy and quick dinner to get together tonight– one thing off your list;)

My friends at the National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Association (NFRA) wanted me to remind you that during the busy summertime season there are so many easy meals that you can pull together quickly that use the items from the freezer and dairy aisles. Picture if you can, a busy summer day… kids playing outside….swimming in the pool… wet bathing suits running through the sprinkler…ahhhh summer! Keep the kids outside with this super easy lunch that will keep all those wet bathing suits outside along with the mess!

5 for the road: Go Baby Go

Hey guys thank you for your patience with these sponsored posts lately. Sometimes they have to go back to back and I appreciate your patience! I hope that I make them really fun to read and give you ideas about things you otherwise wouldn’t know about:)

It’s been a busy week here with the Derby! I am really excited to go this year. My friends scored some awesome tickets…should be a great day at the track:)

My parents are on their way to the beach tomorrow to enjoy a couple weeks in paradise. Of course my dad loves a good project and he will be projecting for me while they are there. They is also going to install a new cabinet above our stove. Currently we have a small wall cabinet along with a vent that basically just recirculates the air. We don’t use the vent and so we thought it would be a better use of space to do a large plate rack with some shelving. My dad never ceases to amaze me and has built  a cabinet that will fit right in this spot have room for plenty of plates along with both above and underneath he put some cup hooks. It is so much storage and it’s so much more than what we have right now. They may also put a fresh coat of paint on the wall…going for Topsail by Sherwin Williams…a nice watery blue

Berry Bourbon KY Derby Parfait

One thing you learn when you move to Kentucky is to never call a Bourbon “whiskey”…blasphemy I say! What is the difference between whiskey and bourbon you ask??? Here is a little lesson for those of you who have never lived in Kentucky and are unaware of this fact. You can only call a particular alcohol Bourbon if it was made in the state of Kentucky. Bourbon is basically a whiskey that has been fermented in barrels for a specific amount of time. Bourbon typically has a much sweeter taste than some of your other whiskeys…much smoother that those say… made in say “Tennessee”;) Similar to how you really should not call a sparkling wine “Champagne” unless it came directly from the region in France. When you live in Kentucky you take this Kentucky Proud product of Bourbon very seriously. I thought that for my second post for the Kentucky Derby I would create a yummy brunch recipe that calls for a wee bit of the “brown water” as we call it here in the Bluegrass….
