Pantry Organization

Not gonna lie, I have a lot of anxiety over this whole quarantine/pandemic stuff. Anyone else? I shared some of the reasons why in a post earlier this week. I really hate worrying about the people I love, especially when there isn’t much I can do to keep them all protected. I’ve been trying to combat my nervous energy with staying busy. I’ve been texting, talking on the phone and video conferencing with colleagues as we try to figure out […]

Farmhouse Pantry Crates on Caster Wheels

This project has been on my “to-do” list for quite some time, and I’m so glad to have finally been able to tackle it! I’ve had this idea in my mind ever since we moved in to our new house about a year and half ago. At that time, I organized our pantry fairly well, but I also had a whole house to pull together and try to at least get things functional since we moved in on the first […]

Prime Purchases– The Best of 2020

Today, I’m linking up with Tanya and several other bloggers to share our best Amazon purchases of 2020! I’ve been a regular Amazon Prime shopper for several years, mainly because it makes our busy life a tiny bit easier. But in 2020, Amazon was helpful not only for making life a little less chaotic, but also for reducing shopping trips into stores, and thereby reducing our COVID exposure, too. Now that it’s Christmas shopping season, online shopping with Amazon continues […]

Almond Poppy Seed Cake

This recipe is a favorite of my husband’s from way back before I knew him. Apparently, a coworker at a job he had right out of college made this cake and brought it to work. He has mentioned “that poppy seed cake” over the past few years many, many times. 😂 One day not long ago, when I asked him what sounded good for me to bake for him, he mentioned this cake again. I said that I’d try to […]

Make Your Own Margarita Flight!

Last weekend, we had lunch out on the patio of a Mexican restaurant with my kids while they were in town. It was an absolutely beautiful day, and the first time we had eaten at a restaurant since last March. Although I was nervous at first, I ended up feeling really relaxed, because the restaurant did a great job of spacing the tables really far apart, and requiring masks anytime you were not sitting at your table. Plus, I have […]
