Fourth of July Celebration Essentials

July 4th is one of my favorite holidays, and I love hosting a good old-fashioned family barbecue with delicious summer food, and lots of red, white & blue Fourth of July Celebration Essentials. Let’s Eat! July 4 is about the only holiday where I rely on disposable dinnerware. For my family, this summer holiday is more “picnic style”. If it’s not sweltering hot, we like to eat outside and paper plates and napkins just work better for this. Plus, disposable […]

We used an old family recipe that my mom always made because it was my dad’s favorite pie. My mom has written on the top of the recipe card that the recipe was passed down from HER grandmother. It wasn’t until after Evelynn and I had finished the pie that […]

But, I’m slowly gaining some of my energy back, and summer break officially began this week, so it seemed fitting to celebrate by baking up a batch […]

Life Lately Well, I thought I was going to be here sharing some pictures of sun and sand with you today. If you remember from my Prime Purchases post earlier this month, we were preparing for a long-awaited and much-needed beach vacation. But, it didn’t happen. Our bags were packed and sitting by the door, all ready for our 6 am flight. When the alarm went off at 2:30 am for us to get ready to head to the airport, […]

Easy Saint Patrick’s Day Table

This easy Saint Patrick’s Day Table is a fun way to add a little celebration to your life, without having to put in too much effort. ☘️ 😂 You guys, life is busy right now.

Last night after we cleaned up from dinner, I suggested we get in bed and watch TV instead of sitting in the family room because I was that tired. And then I legit fell asleep at […]

Life Lately Spring Fever Anyone else super excited that the seed catalogs are starting to be delivered?! One afternoon this week it was sunny and warm enough to sit outside in the 3-season porch and browse through my Seeds ‘n’ Such. It certainly gave me some Spring Fever.

Sundays on Silverado #78

Life Lately We squeezed in an afternoon of antique store browsing–the first in quite a long time. It’s one of my favorite ways to relax and take my mind off everything. I mean, really, it’s practically like traveling back in time, right? I came home with some really fun finds that you will see in upcoming posts… a lot of “trash to treasure” upcycling going on around here lately. Stay tuned. One thing that was already a treasure, was this […]
