Thrifted Milk Can Makeover
On one of my last trips to Goodwill I found this little milk can. I’ve always wanted one for my kitchen and this looks like one I saw being sold at the craft stores at some point in time. I picked it up for an easy on the pocketbook 2.99.

10 WAYS TO RELAX AND DE-STRESS
DESIGN LIFE DIARIES
Two weeks ago Chris and I were able to attend the annual Lavender Festival at Highland Springs Resort. This has been on my LA Bucket List for about five years now, but I always somehow manage to miss it. This year, I was not about to let it sneak by me again. I am so happy that my handy dandy planner (I use this one!) kept it on my radar and we were finally able to partake in the festivities this year.
When I look into a mirror, I think I look okay. I know I’m overweight, and I know I have a “mom bod.” But my husband never complains – he just tells me I’m beautiful no matter what. But every once in a while my confidence takes a hit, and I have to remind myself that my size is not my worth. My body does not define what I can do or who I am. The other night, I was sent reeling by a comment from my five year old, Dexter.
Healthy Hydration: Honey/Ginger Haymaker’s Punch
One of the job hazards of being a homesteader in Texas is the heat & humidity you’re subjected to during a typical Texas summer as you go about your daily tasks. WHEW! It’s really turned hot out there, but I’m not afforded an air conditioned job behind a desk anymore. (not that I’m complaining!) I need to be in the garden, on the tractor or maybe at the barn – much of my responsibilities involve me working outside. Recently a smart friend shared her recipe for making what she called ‘Haymaker Punch’ that she used as her own homemade Gatorade during the summer. Her recipe used 4 simple ingredients: apple cider vinegar, filtered water, grated ginger and honey.

Making a Log Planter for Flowers
A Proverbs 31 Wife
Back in March I found and shared this photo on Facebook. I loved the idea and wanted Jason to help me make one.
The response from every-one was overwhelming, and I was asked to share photos if I ever made one. Well it took several months but I now have a log planter in my back yard!
PEACH CRUNCH CAKE
Walking on Sunshine
I've made this peach crunch recipe quite a few times and each time I make it I'm reminded at how easy it is and how much people enjoy it. It uses a cake mix and canned peaches. Who knew a cake mix and canned peaches could turn into this amazing delicious peach crunch cake.
CHERRY PIE COOKIES
These Cherry Pie Cookies will make for a perfect summer dessert. Mini pies in the form of a cookie are great for picnics and bbq’s. Super delicious, easy, and so fun!
Little Tikes Playhouse Extreme Paint Makeover
What kid doesn’t love a playhouse? I never had one when I was growing up….soooo deprived. Our neighbors gave us this playhouse about 10 years ago. It was a hand-me-down from their grandson. Our oldest granddaughter, Tenley, was two or three at the time so we were thrilled to get it. That was about 10 years ago.
