Five Things

It’s hard to believe that a week ago today, I was experiencing both the PGA Show and Disney for the first time! This past week has just flown by. The first of our winter guests have arrived and it’s always so much fun entertaining. It’s also the time when we finally make it to the beach. We rarely go and it’s nice to play tourist for a day and enjoy what our island has to offer, especially in the middle of winter =)

The Best Bacon Mac & Cheese

Did you get snowed in this past weekend? While it was beautiful weather in my neck of the woods, all of those wintery pics on my Instagram feed had me wishing for cold weather! I remember how nice it was to stay warm and cozy indoors and indulge in a big bowl of comfort food. For me, that means a heaping portion of homemade macaroni and cheese. Toss in some bacon, and I’m in heaven!

And I’m excited to tell you that getting beautiful curls with volume is crazy easy!

So if you have waves or curls and want to know how to make the most out of them, read on, your life’s about to change;) Incredible Curls Title

Five Things

Do you ever have those moments when something has to be done at that very second, and if it isn’t taken care of you stress and stress until it finally is? That’s how I felt about my Christmas tree last Friday. We’d finished taking the decorations off and had planned to dispose of it over the weekend, but I stood there Friday morning with an hour left before I had to start work and I needed it to be gone. I told my helper, who was hanging out with Jackson at the time, “I have to get it out of here.” But as determined as I was, I was pretty sure trying to lift an 8 foot tree by myself was probably not the smartest idea in the world. 

And then I remembered…we have a saw!
