Our Basement Renovation - Learning How to Drywall, Then Hiring It Out

In my last post, we had hung all the drywall and had just started mudding and taping all the joints. Being that my mother grew up helping her father who was a Drywaller by trade, she knows a thing or two. She spent a Saturday showing us how to apply the mud and tape to the joints and corners.

How to Bible Journal Without a Journaling Bible

I am partnering with DaySpring to share a look at the new Illustrated Faith Rise Up kit. All thoughts and opinions are my own. This post contains affiliate links, which means I receive a small financial compensation if you make a purchase using this link.

I post my Bible journaling pages weekly on social media and frequently get asked what kind of Bible I have, if the pictures are already in it, and what it is all about. I have even hosted a couple of Bible Journaling workshops at my church and several of the ladies were concerned about not having a special Jounaling Bible. I am here to show you today that you can still be creative and illustrate God's Word without purchasing another Bible!

Easy Strawberry Smoothie

When Spring rolls around and fresh fruits start to come into season, I love to make smoothies for a snack or breakfast. My teenage son is picky about what he eats and does not like many fruits, but he will eat strawberries and loves them in a smoothie. This allows me to sneak in some extra goodness, like yogurt.
There is no excuse to not get your fruit in with this easy strawberry smoothie!

Incorporating Pops of Color Into your Decor

While standing in the check out line at the grocery store a couple of weeks ago, the cover of a magazine caught my eye and I had to pick it up! It was a shot of a bright kitchen with turquoise cabinets (SWOON!) and open shelving with colorful dishes. Obviously, the magazine went in my cart and came home with me. It inspired me to share some of the ways I incorporate color into my decor to hopefully inspire you to do the same.

What I am Wearing - Olive Dress for Graduation

Graduation season is upon us, and many of us have at least one to attend. I, myself will be attending my nephew's college graduation this month. With unpredictable weather and outdoor venues, it is hard to know what to wear. I found a comfy, cotton dress from Aventura that can be dressed up or down for any graduation or other year-end school event.

Ways to Stay In Love With Your Bible

A special thanks to DaySpring for allowing me to review this book and share my honest thoughts.  This post contains affiliate links, which means I receive a small financial compensation if you make a purchase using this link.

It is no secret that I love Bible Journaling because it helps me spend more time in the Word. If you read my recent post on Diving Deeper in Your Faith, I confess that I have times that I struggle with finding time to open my Bible. The truth is, I think we all do, which is why I was excited to receive a copy of 10 Ways to Fall in Love With Your Bible and Stay In Love by Shanna Noel. If you are not familiar with that name, Shanna is the creator of Illustrated Faith, which is an online Bible Journaling resource and community.

If you want to stop feeling guilty about not reading your Bible, then come along with me and say goodbye to all your excuses.

I have a special post for you today! Ya'll, I am so excited to be participating in my very first Fab Furniture Flippin' Contest! If you have not heard of this, it is where a group of bloggers compete to win prizes by making over a piece of furniture. There is a different theme and brand sponsor each month. This month the theme is "Cut n Paste with Overlays" and we are using decorative panels from a company called O'verlays, to update a piece of furniture.

I have to confess that I have a crush on blush this season! I have never been a pale pink kind of girl, but this blush trend that is popping up all over has me obsessed! I have added several blush pieces to my wardrobe this season, including this gorgeous blush, floral Maxi dress. I purchased it to wear for Easter, but it can be worn all Spring and Summer.
