• Showing My Easter Table + Fun Family Traditions

    When my kids were little we would hide plastic eggs in our backyard and let them go hunt for the prize inside, which was normally candy of some sort. One year we put chocolate inside and soon realized that the sun had melted the chocolate. Lesson learned. Another fun thing we would do was dye eggs and then we had fun decorating them. We would dip an egg halfway in one color for a few minutes, then turn the egg over and dip the other half in another color. The kids thought that was cool! We would use crayons, glitter, stickers, and just have so much fun with all of…

  • Baby Nursery Room Reveal!

    I’ve been working on something fun for a few months now, and we can finally reveal it! My oldest daughter is pregnant with her first baby due in November!! I’m a grandma to two beautiful girls from my son and daughter-in-law, so when I found out my daughter was pregnant after she had been trying for a while I was SO HAPPY.

I partnered with some AMAZING businesses and brands to pull this room together, working with my daughter’s vision, of course. She…

  • Sweet Dreams with Emma Mattress

    SLEEP IS NOT OVERRATED!Many people don’t know this, but I have lived with back pain practically my whole life and it’s not fun. In fact, it is downright painful and can be very debilitating. I had to have back surgery about 13 years ago to remove a bulging disk. I had the surgery because I had no choice at the time—it affected me so much that I found myself not being able to walk because of this disk. Sometimes when I am lying down I have back pain. It’s just what I deal with. I know there are so many people that deal with back pain and the number is…

  • Sink Dreams Come True!

Many people do not know where Temecula is but it is nicknamed Wine Country and it’s a very beautiful place to live. My family has lived here for 14 years. Our home is a place that I love to be—in fact, I prefer to stay home many nights instead of going out! Are you like that? A homebody too?  There is no place like being home and I love my home. Our home is a work in progress I like to say I am always working on something, whether…

  • Kitchen Remodel

    SUE’S KITCHEN REMODEL We moved into our home 14 years ago and have never been able to update our kitchen until now! The granite that we have lived with for all these years had an orange and brown color to it. The prior owners upgraded the kitchen with Thermador appliances and a Sub Zero refrigerator which have been a nice addition to the space. We had been wanting to replace the sink and faucet for a long time and so we just decided to do it!  It turned out AMAZING!  Below are the before pictures of the kitchen.   LANGE COPPER APRON FRONT SINK  SINKOLOGY.COM Believe it or not, the sink…
