My Sister’s Tee Giveaway

Sometimes you come across something so full of fun that you just have to smile. This is how I feel about My Sister’s Tee. Created by two sisters, and made for the sisterhood that belongs to all women, these shirts are meant to inspire.

I was lucky enough to get the Be The Good dolman tee to try out. Here is how I wore it:

Outfit of the day

Simple and easy for summer; Be The Good dolman style tee, a favorite pair of jean shorts, a fun and funky purse, and of course, some pink Converse shoes! For makeup I kept it simple with two Younique pigments on my eyes (Flirty and Curious), and of course, my favorite 3D fiber lashes (my eyes look naked without them now)!

What I love about this tee; the design is fun and uplifting. It’s very comfy, it could easily become one of my favorites. It’s soft, high quality tri-blend that didn’t shrink when I washed it. I also liked the color, which is a light grey. I also liked how the dolman tee wasn’t overly fitted. If you have a bit of a belly like me you might like this fit a lot too.

There are many other fun designs on the site, something to fit everyone’s style and taste. One lucky reader will even have a chance to pick out their favorite tee! That’s right, it’s giveaway time! To enter just use the form below, USA only.

Next up, the front door.

Our front door has been overdue for a spruce up for quiet some time now. But let’s face it, painting a front door isn’t the easiest thing, the weather needs to be right if you are going to remove it, and doing it with a brush takes time.

Luckily, we got a FLEXiO 890 Sprayer for review. I’m so excited! This is going to make our front door spruce up so much easier, and faster! Not to mention all the other walls in the house I can think of painting with it!

Back to the door. Right now it is a metallic brown, and it’s a bit beat up. The door frame also really needs to be painted, it’s missing paint in a lot of spots.

Front Door Before

The main hangup we are having now is what color to paint the door! Should we stick with brown, it looks nice with our brick. Maybe a darker brown, or a lighter brown? What about a red? Or even a gray? It needs to be something that will help hide the dings and dents in the door (they came with the house)!

What is your favorite front door color? We are open to your suggestions!

Pioneer Day Covered Wagon Treats

Here’s a quick break down of the cute covered wagons we made for Pioneer Day last year! A very fun activity to do together.

Covered wagon treatsThey are pretty simple to make. You will need:

  • Twinkies
  • Mini-Fudge Stripe cookies, or other small round cookies with a hole.
  • Vanilla wafers. Chocolate would work well too, but they didn’t have any at the store.
  • Toothpicks.
  • Animal cookies.

First cut the ends off of the Twinkies so they are shaped like an open covered wagon. Next lay out two vanilla wafers on a plate. Place the Twinkie on top, lining up the edge of the Twinkie to one edge of the wafers. Trim the excess wafer from the other side so everything is flush.

Next, put two Mini-Fudge stripes on a toothpick (make two of these), and place it them under the wafers. It helps if you can press the wafers gently into the toothpick for added stability.

The “oxen” is the trickiest part. If you have a bit of frosting on hand you could stick the toothpick to the back of the animal cracker for extra hold. We slid our toothpicks just under the frosting, and then poked it into the Twinkie.

Pioneer Day Treats

These aren’t the most stable of edibles, but that’s fine since they are going to be eaten quickly anyway!

Happy Pioneer Day!
