Grandma's Lemony Lemon Cake

I mentioned that my daughter had a birthday, but I didn't mention that my hubby also celebrated his birthday! Yes, our daughter was born on hubby's birthday! Best gift I ever gave him - and one that keeps on giving!! :)

There has always been a struggle over whose cake I make on their day. Well, this year they both got what they wanted. My girl got a cheesecake (which I did not make), and hubby got his favorite lemony lemon cake (recipe courtesy of his grandma).

Another Year Older

A couple of months ago our oldest turned 20. And just this weekend our daughter turned 18. 18 and 20? How is that possible?? Seriously it was just yesterday that they came home from the hospital right?

Bathroom Storage & Organization

Hey there! I'm back to share with you our newly organized bathroom. As I said in my last post, I knew I would have to get creative with storage solutions for bathroom necessities when I removed the cabinet above the toilet. I was planning on installing shelves and knew I could disguise things in baskets there if needed. But, after some serious purging and creative container storage, I was able to fit it all in the vanity very nicely!

Under The Sink Built-In Shelf

I've got a fairly easy building project to share with you today. Another goodie from our bathroom makeover. One that honestly you probably never saw, since I don't think I shared the inside of the cabinets. Today we are addressing that blessed area under the sink.

Plans For 2016

How is it possibly Friday already!?! Like many of you I'm sure, I have been busy reclaiming my house after Christmas. I don't know about you but for me there just seems to be things stuffed everywhere during December. And by January I feel like I must clean out all the stuff before the walls close in on me!!


I've been thinking a lot about the direction things will be headed in 2016 and I've nailed down a few things that I would like to accomplish.
