Our Basement Renovation - More Demo plus A New Window and Door

I know it has been a while since my last update, but this summer we did not make a lot of progress. We are rolling again since we got a little help from a friend and the pool is closed for the winter, so I will have some more updates for you! In my last update, we finished the wall framing and also tore down the drop ceiling structure. We took a break after completing the never ending framing to focus on replacing the entry door and tiny window, before the weather turned cold. We enlisted the help of our carpenter friend, because cutting a hole in the side of our house kinda scared me. I am sure we could have done it, but having it done all in one day was worth the extra money.

What I am Wearing - 3 Reasons to Love Leggings

Up until last year, I had not really worn leggings since I was a teenager.  I had the misconception that they made me look bigger than I really was and I did not really know how to style them.  Leggings were mainly reserved for yoga or lounging around the house.  Thanks to the legging craze, I picked up a black pair to wear under some of my longer tunics and I was converted!

Leggings look great with tunics, dresses, over-sized sweatshirts, long button up tops, and more!

I first started out with solids, (black, navy, brown) but now I own several patterned ones too!  My most recent ones are from Simple Addiction, an online boutique.  They carry a ton of colors and patterns, all under $10! You can use my code "MARY15" to save an extra 15% on your order!

Movie Night Gift Basket

I am a fan of making gift baskets because they are easy and inexpensive to fill, because you can usually find everything at the dollar store. If you need a quick neighbor gift, make this easy Redbox Movie Night basket.

Slow Cooker Recipe - Buffalo Chicken Chili

If you have been following me for a while, you may know that I do not like to eat soup in warm weather, but now that cooler weather is here, it is a staple.  Another staple is my slow cooker...I literally can not live without it!  It is great for working moms because it allows you to set it and forget it until dinner time.

Spice up white chili with buffalo sauce and save time by throwing it in the crockpot!

DIY Cedar Lined Closet

As part of our basement renovation, we built a closet in the new hallway, so we can store off-season clothes and free up some space in our coat closet and guest bedroom. The interior wall wall was made of cinder block (fall out shelter, maybe?) so my husband thought we needed to cover it up. We talked about lining it with cedar, but that was not in our budget, so we had decided to line it with some of the old paneling we removed. While at Haven Conference a few months back, I was introduced to CedarSafe and they generously agreed to partner with me and provide the materials for this project.

Tips for Hosting a Progressive Dinner - Appetizers

For the last several years, the youth group at our church has participated in a Progressive Dinner. If you have never heard of this concept, it is where different families host portions of the meal: Appetizers, Main Course, and Dessert. This is a fun way for the youth to interact with different families within the church. My family hosted the appetizer portion last year and agreed to host again this year. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have caught some of the fun in my InstaStory!

This post was sponsored by Smithfield as part of an Influencer Activation for Influence Central and all opinions expressed in my post are my own. #RealFlavorRealFast

The holidays are super busy and most nights I do not have a lot of time to prepare a healthy dinner for my family. Smithfield® Marinated Pork brings you "Real Flavor Real fast" and helps get dinner on the table in lass than 30 minutes! This is perfect when my son asks me "What's for dinner?" as soon as I walk in the door!

Welcome to my first annual Christmas home tour! I have been decking the halls and want to share my decor with you. I hope you come in and stay a while! We do not hang outdoor lights, but we do have a Moravian star, a mini pre-lit tree, and I decorate the topiary tree by the door.

The holiday season is upon us and Big Lots has everything you need for those last minute gifts you forgot about, like your neighbor or a friend at work. Since there always seems to be someone I forget about, I pick up a few extra gifts that I could quickly wrap up in a gift basket.

DIY Christmas Card Holder

Even though people do not seem to be sending Christmas cards in the mail as much as in years past, I still get several from family members. I always struggle with how to display them. I have put them up on the mantle, on the breakfast bar, taped them to the door, and even stuck them on a metal sun that hangs on my wall. This year I decided to make something to hold them.

Make a holder for those Christmas cards with just a few supplies!

It is so easy to make and only requires a couple of supplies. Bonus: you can use it as a frame after Christmas is over!

Cleaning a Microfiber Couch

Thanks to HomeRight for providing a SteamMachine Model 53 for review. As always, all opinions are 100% my own. This post contains affiliate links for your convenience.

As you may know, we are getting close to finishing up a massive basement renovation. We have been doing it all on a tiny budget, which means being creative with furnishing the main living area. If you saw my "before" pictures, you would have noticed that all we had in the room before was a recliner, side table, and TV, (a.k.a. the castoffs) so we needed to purchase a few more pieces to make the space functional.

Don't throw out that stained microfiber couch; steam clean it!

If you follow me on Instagram, you are probably already familiar with my handsome pup, Charlie. My husband never had dogs growing up, so Charlie is his first real experience with a dog. I have had dogs my entire life and knew I wanted one when we bought our house 7 years ago. We adopted Charlie from a friend at church (he was one of her dog's puppies) when he was about 3 months old. He is a Husky/Shepherd mix and is one of the most beautiful dogs I have ever seen.

Our pets are part of the family, so they need to be made to feel special. Why not personalize their food and water bowls for a unique gift?

Dollar Store DIY Neighbor Gift

The holidays are quickly approaching and my list of gifts I need to buy seems to be never ending.  I try to save money by making some gifts myself, especially for friends and neighbors.  I have one neighbor who frequently puts our garbage bins up and leaves treats in cute, handmade treat boxes that are customized to the current season or holiday, so I wanted to thank them with a gift.

Make a customized gift for a friend or neighbor using items from the dollar store!

I decided to customize a plain hand soap bottle and gift bag, using items I found at the Dollar Tree.

Bible Journaling Using Printables

As you know, I love to spend time in my Bible creating beautiful illustrations and recently I shared how I use washi tape in my journaling.  In that post, I mentioned that I use the washi tape to affix printable cards to the Bible pages.  Today I am going to share some of the ways I use printables in my Bible journaling.

Personalized Winter Survival Kit for Men

I have received information and materials from Johnson & Johnson Consumer, Inc., McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division. The opinions stated are my own. This is a sponsored post. This Men's Winter Survival Kit shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. 
All opinions are mine alone. #WinOverWinter #CollectiveBias

Winter is upon us, which means colds, muscle aches, and dry skin. I cannot always be with my teenage son while he is at his dad's house or on youth retreats, but I can still take care of him by sending along a winter survival kit. None of us can afford to be sick during this busy season!

Make your favorite guy a winter survival kit and personalize it by adding their initials to it, using adhesive vinyl.

Last weekend, my son went on a retreat in the mountains, which involved quite a bit of hiking, which led to sore muscles. Luckily he was prepared with the Ultra Strength BENGAY® Cream and Extra Strength TYLENOL® in his winter survival kit.

Christmas Star from Afar + A Giveaway! {CLOSED}

A special thanks to Christmas Star From Afar for providing a kit for me to review and one to give away!  As always, all opinions are 100% my own.

Christmas is my favorite holiday; it represents family and traditions for me.  For my family, we attend a Candlelight service on Christmas Eve and then watch A Christmas Story.  I always struggle to keep the focus on the true meaning of Christmas, instead of the commercialism that surrounds it.

Fall is here and the weather has just started to turn cooler, which makes it perfect for sitting outside, watching the leaves turn, and sipping on your favorite hot beverage. I indulge in the occasional coffee house treat, but who can spend $5 every day? Not this I get creative and make my own flavorful coffee drinks, like this Salted Chile Caramel Latte, featuring Torani Bourbon Caramel Syrup.

Cranberry Thanksgiving Decor

Halloween has come and gone and I thought about skipping Thanksgiving decor and decorating my buffet for Christmas, but I was not ready to let go of Fall quite yet. Today I am sharing how I decorated my buffet to transition from Thanksgiving to Christmas by using cranberries in my decor.

I decided to get a little more decorating use out of my pumpkins and gourds that were on my front porch and create a harvest themed centerpiece.

Holiday Cookie Packaging Ideas

This Holiday Cookie Packaging Ideas shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #ShareTheHoliday #CollectiveBias

I look forward to the holidays because I get to spend time with family and friends that I do not see often and share family recipes. One of my favorite events is a holiday cookie swap because I get to try my friends' yummy recipes, as well as share my own. One of the fun things about cookie swaps is getting to take a box of assorted cookies home with you or making a package to share with a neighbor.

Customize your holiday cookie packages with festive tags, washi tape, and ribbon!

I love to decorate my containers, so they are as festive as the cookies inside. Rubbermaid TakeAlongs makes it easy to share your favorite cookies and the Quik Clik Seal™ keeps them fresh for days (not that they will last that long!) The best part is that they are microwavable, top rack dishwasher, and freezer safe.

The Nest Fest 2016

I love attending craft fairs because they are such a huge source of inspiration for a crafter and blogger like me.  Recently I attended The Nest Fest in Midland, NC, which is only about and hour and a half from where I live.  I was able to meet my bloggy bestie Bethany from Pitter and Glink.  We connected on Instagram a while back and have been friends ever since.  She also lives in NC, so we thought this would be the perfect opportunity to hang out and find some unique items.  It was the perfect day, with perfect Fall weather, so I wanted to share it with you!

Be the Light Challenge - Trust

If you caught my announcement post a couple of weeks ago, you will know I am joining 7 other lifestyle bloggers in a Be the Light Challenge, where we are sharing stories of encouragement during election week.

Eight lifestyle bloggers got together to share a Be the Light Challenge. This challenge is to encourage to share God's light and love online in social media. The challenge will run from Nov 1-8, 2016. Each day we will have a verse and inspiration to be the light. This comes at a great time when social media is filled with so much contention over election and other issues. How to disagree, how to love, how to be the light when there is so much fighting.

Restoring Old Headlights with WipeNew Headlight Restore

I realize this may be a little bit of a departure from my normal DIY posts, but I had to share this new product I discovered.  My hubby has tried all of the leading brands that promise new headlights, with less than optimal results.  Some would be OK for a month or two, but then they would be cloudy again.  Others didn't work at all.

Be the Light Challenge

In this day and time, it is easy to get discouraged from all the pain, violence, and brokenness in the world.  I have to admit that I try to avoid the news because it ends up making me sad and worried for my child's future.  I feel like now, more than ever, the world needs more love, peace, kindness, and hope.  I am excited to be partnering with 7 other bloggers for a #bethelightchallenge!

DIY Pumpkin Clock

I love to decorate for Fall and have been looking for inexpensive ways to add more pumpkins to my decor.  While at Haven conference, I received a round piece of wood and a clock kit (from Walnut Hollow) in the Deco Art session.  I had just been using it to stage blog photos, but one day I had an idea that I could cut it into a pumpkin shape and make it into a seasonal clock!

DIY Spooky Stepping Stones

I love to decorate for Halloween, despite the fact we generally do not get many trick-or-treaters.  As a member of Rust-Oleum's Creators Studio, I received a pack of Testors Spray Chalk for a project challenge.  Initially, I was kind of stumped what to do with it, other than draw on the driveway.  But then I came up with an idea to make designs on our flagstone pavers, using a stencil.

Creating a Workspace in a Small Area

Our house is a decent size, but it does not have an extra room that I could use for an an office, since I do not want to give up the guest bedroom.  So, I usually ended up working on my laptop at either the breakfast bar or the dining room table. Of course this caused a problem, because when we had guests over, I would have to pack up my laptop, mouse, planner, and other crap piled on the table. My goal was to find somewhere in the house where I could steal a few feet to have a proper work space.

I was thrilled when my friend Melanie invited me to be a part of the Popcorn Box Challenge, hosted by Laura Kelly Designs and sponsored by World Market.  I love Halloween, so I was definitely excited to see what I could come up with!   I kicked around several ideas, but once I got my package and saw the striped paper and spider brad, I knew what I had to do!

I love decorating with pumpkins in the Fall; I use them everywhere!  If carving pumpkins is too messy for you, I  have an option for a no carve pumpkin. This can be customized for a fall theme or Halloween.  You can also use this on a real pumpkin, or a fake one, if you want it to last even longer! This pumpkin can be used for a table centerpiece, outdoor decor, or as part of a decorating party! The best thing is that this project only took about 15 minutes to make with my Cricut Explore Air!

Styling a Wood Watch

A special thanks to JORD Wood Watches for sponsoring this post.  I received product in exchange for this post, but all opinions are my own.

I am a watch girl, and even though I can easily see the time on my phone, I like having an old fashioned watch on my arm.  Since my favorite watch (that I have had for probably 15 years) recently died, my wrist has felt naked.  I tried a few of my other watches, but none were right.  I like to have a watch that I can wear everyday, regardless of my style.  After seeing these gorgeous wood watches by JORD on a few of my friends on Instagram, I knew I had to try one.  I was lucky enough to receive one to review and give you a chance to win $75 e-gift code toward you own JORD Wood Watch!

 This unique wood watch by JORD goes with every outfit

Neutral Painted Pumpkins

DIY Halloween Costumes

Halloween is a little over a month away and I am starting to plan out my costume for this year. If you have read my "About Me" page, you will know I love dressing up for Halloween! Store bought costumes can be so expensive! Who wants to spend $60-100 on something you will wear once or twice?  The last few years, I have made my own (thanks to Pinterest!) using things that I already had around the house or could buy cheaply. I spent less than $25 making these costumes!

Why My Teen is Amazing (Yoplait ® Go Big Challenge)

I was chosen to spread the word about a new Yoplait ® Go Big campaign and share how my teen is amazing.  Sometimes we get so busy that we do not always make time to tell the ones we love how much they mean to us.  I think this is especially important to do for our children, especially tweens and teens, because they tend to struggle with their identity and self worth during these years.

(Please tell me I am not the only one with an #accessoryproblem)  I am embarrassed to say that my second chest is getting pretty full, so I have been scouring Pinterest for ideas on how to display some of my pretty pieces.  I love the idea of using decorative knobs, shadow boxes, or re-purposing frames.

DIY Sunflower Centerpiece for a Gourmet Soup Party

Fall is right around the corner, which means pumpkins, sweaters, and soup!  I am jump starting the season with a "Welcome to Fall" Gourmet Soup Tasting Party.  I am one of those people who does not like to eat soup during the summer; can you relate?  Since the weather is starting to cool down a little, it is the perfect time to introduce soup back into my meal planning and have an excuse to get together with my girl friends!
