Getting Halloween ready.

It’s hard to believe we are almost half way through October! When did time speed up?

Baby received this adorable bee costume (read more here) and I just wanted to share it with you. I mean really! That skirt? Too cute.

I have slowly been getting our house decorated and will share this year’s decorations very soon.

Are you ready for Halloween yet?

The mess of making things better.

Anyone who has ever redone a space, even if it’s a small redo, knows that mess is bound to happen. Not just happen, but linger. Right now I am finishing up my small office redo, but I wanted to show you a few of the steps. It’s nothing hard, just removing stuff, but that stuff has to go someplace!

First things first, the shelves get emptied. Where did all that stuff end up? In our dining room.

And then finally, the wall is empty.

Things learned along the way? There isn’t much space in this office. It’s longer than it is wide. Also, there isn’t much light in the office, making it darn near impossible to get a decent photo (even with Photoshop helping along the way).

Things are coming along though, and the reveal will be revealed soon! However I have to be honest, I will be very glad when everything is back in it’s own spot. Mess makes me grumpy.

12 Days of Christmas with Six Sister’s Stuff and a giveaway

Oh friends, I know. I am totally breaking my own rule and posting something about Christmas before Halloween or Thanksgiving. I hope you will forgive me though, because what I am sharing today is awesome, and it could just make your holiday a lot more fun!

12DaysBanner

12 Days of Christmas With Six Sisters’ Stuff: Recipes, Traditions, Homemade Gifts, and So Much More is packed full of fun ideas for gift giving, creating traditions, party ideas, quick and easy meals, and more!

As with all recipe books (though this is more than just recipes) I always want full color photos. Luckily this book is jam packed with them! Not only are there full-color photographs and easy-to-follow instructions, but all the food looks so delicious I think I gained weight just flipping through the book!

Something in the book that I found to be very sweet (honey stop reading right here please), is the 12 days of Christmas for Your True Love. This short little section got my attention! How often are we overly busy during the holiday season, preparing gifts and treats for family and friends, but forget the one who is on the top of the list? I really loved that there was a section full of easy ideas to make your spouse feel extra special during the holidays.

I was eager to try something from the book, but since a great many things are Christmas themed, I picked a recipe that I figured would work any time of the year (most of them will actually). It was delicious! Since I adore breakfast foods, the Brunch Enchiladas were the perfect thing to try out. They were a hit in this house, and are sure to be a favorite if taken to a brunch!

OK, enough talking about it, would you like a chance to win a signed copy? Enter below:

Meet the TV lift cabinet, your new favorite piece of furniture!

One thing that I have always wanted in our living room was a fireplace, not just because I love the way they look, but I wanted to easily add warmth to the room. I also wanted a spot to hang our Christmas stockings! So imagine my delight when TVLiftCabinet.com reached out and wanted us to feature their amazing fireplace/TV cabinet combo!

Where is the TV? It is in the cabinet waiting to lift out! Amazing, right? And it gets better. Not only can you lift and lower the TV, you can do it with a remote. You can also use a setting that will lower the television again when it has been turned off. It feels a bit like we are The Jetsons!

Sorry for the lack of artwork above the fireplace, but we are still looking for the perfect picture to compliment our cabinet! Now for the cabinet with the TV lifted up. The cabinet holds a wide range of sizes, this television is 48″.

I was also surprised to find two storage areas on the sides of the cabinet that are perfect for holding Blu-rays and games. There are hidden places for cable boxes and other electronics as well. Everything about the TV lift cabinet has been very well thought out.

And yes, that is an electric fireplace that you see in the front! And not only does it give the look and feeling of a fireplace, it is also a heater. I can’t wait to put it to use this winter!
