Risqué kitchen flooring?!

25th Feb 2018

Yep, you read that title right. Risqué kitchen flooring. In my previous post about our kitchen, I explained how I inadvertently started our kitchen remodel by ripping off our wall attempting to use some adhesive subway tiles 😂 Stage 2 of said kitchen remodel is going about as well.  Long story short, I ditched my dream flooring, Mannington’s Deco in Wrought Iron for something more budget friendly. I came across this product – Walnut Ember Java Vinyl Plank. It was the deal of the day and even less $ than what you see on the site!  It has great reviews, mostly […]

Salmon BLT’s

23rd Feb 2018

These Salmon BLT’s are one of my favorite meals. They are easy to make and you can change them up in so many ways. Right now I’m loving them on Panera Bread’s Tomato Basil bread, but Rye Bread, Potato Bread, Sourdough… all yummy!  Sometimes I make a garlic mayo, other times I’ve added a little sriracha for Luke and I.  You can also change up the way you season your salmon. It sounds a little wonky, but my favorite seasoning for these is Harry & David’s Hamburger Spice Rub.  Luke’s favorite is Old Bay! Both are great, but you can […]

Have you tried Grove Collaborative?

21st Feb 2018

I stumbled upon Grove Collaborative the other night while trying to find someone who had my Mrs. Meyer’s Baby Blossom Laundry detergent in stock. They had it, and it was less than what I normally pay for it! Grove was also offering free gifts with your purchase and I received everything pictured, shipped to me just two days later, for only $25! I normally pay around $16-18 for the detergent so this was a great deal. The free items were: Grove Glass Spray Bottle with a Silicone Sleeve (this bottle is beautiful!) Mrs. Meyer’s – Hand Soap in Mint (love […]

Updating our green and yellow kitchen!

20th Feb 2018

Guess what? I/we inadvertently started our kitchen update!  😀 Here is where we started, a little over a year ago, DAY ONE – moving day! (Hence all the clutter everywhere, the two dressers and potted trees sitting in the kitchen….) And below is my inspiration board for the space.  Live edge shelves for all of my vintage bottles and glassware, white subway tile, pendant lighting and two of my favorite vintage ads on the back wall (hoping to fit a little breakfast nook back in that corner). The flooring pictured is Mannington’s Deco in Wrought Iron (same brand we used […]
