Thrifted + Vintage

Your home is meant to be your comfortable space. The place to unwind, feel at peace, let the worries subside. For us, our home is also the place to showcase our collections, DIY projects, and other treasures. As they say, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure… and, well, we’ve inherited or collected quite a…

Easy Peasant Bread

Peasant Bread… An easy, and somewhat quicker bread to make for sandwiches, for toast, or just to snack on with butter and jam. When I first baked it, we already downed almost an entire loaf in a day! So, obviously I now like to double my recipe to have enough bread for multiple purposes throughout…

Summer Schooling

We homeschool year round. Now, this doesn’t exactly mean we keep the same momentum or schedule once the hot Summer months hit. What works for us is a more self-led, self-paced system. We still have a lot of fun in the sun with splash pads, pool and lake days to cool off, but we also…

Fun Texas Getaways

When the opportunity arises, I love being able to get away with a gal pal to refresh and recharge without the responsibilities motherhood demands. Don’t get me wrong, I love my kids tremendously, and enjoy exploring alongside them… but every now and then, it’s wonderful to spend some time focusing on the things I enjoy…

Cranberry Pistachio Dutch Oven Bread

I love to bake, especially when I can figure out how to tweak a recipe to make it easier, or one that requires minimal ingredients and work! I have a basic bread recipe that I love to use where I can incorporate different fillers to make it sweet or savory. This bread uses the base…

Tropical Hummingbird Bundt Cake

When things go right in the garden, Springtime means an abundance of yummy fresh produce plucked right outside our door. I try to grow a few different varieties of carrots and tend to need different ways to use them up so we don’t get too bored with the same ol’ dishes. Also, my husband likes…

Head Out to the Hill Country

Texas has some beautifully diverse terrain. Some of the most serene spots can be found in what’s known as the Texas Hill Country. From multiple locations featuring natural springs and swimming holes, to multiple cavern tour experiences, there’s something to explore in the Hill Country. North of Austin is the quaint town of Marble Falls….

Fun in the Golden State

Fun in California can be costly, especially if you stick to the more touristy attractions. Fear not, there are quite a few things to do that are memorable without completely emptying your wallet. When we lived there, we tried our best to appreciate all the beauty that surrounded us, and tried to take advantage of…

Family Fun in Waco

There’s more fun to be had in Waco, Texas than the area around the silos. Don’t get me wrong, you can find some great home decor and have some fun photos taken there, but there are so many more things to explore as a family in Waco! Waco’s 52-acre natural habitat, the Cameron Park Zoo…

Hawaiian Mac Salad

Hawaiian mac salad – so yummy and the perfect side for all your Summer dishes! My husband spent part of his youth growing up in Hawaii, and we still have family living there. We love to go visit and take in all the yummy dishes that are not as easy to find on the mainland….
