Hello! If you follow me on instagram or twitter you probably heard that I had a pretty awesome weekend. I was able to get together with a group of amazing bloggers & attend Miranda Lambert’s Platinum Tour concert for a fun girl’s night out! Eek! So exciting! :) Crystal Light is sponsoring Miranda’s tour, & invited us to attend. Crystal Light also challenged us to come up with a few low calorie drinks to go along with our girl’s night out, because we all know that low calories rock, right? ;) So today I am excited to share not one but TWO yummy drink recipes with you ~ a raspberry lemonade slushie & a strawberry lemonade float. Both of these would be perfect for your next girl’s night out. Plus I have some fun concert pictures to share of me & Miranda. ;) So keep reading!

DIY Book Ledge Reading Nook ~ Back to School Series {tutorial}

Hello! Today I am excited to be teaming up with Emily from The Benson Street in her awesome Back to School Series. Yay! All month long we will be sharing some fun back to school ideas with all of you! Just don’t let my kiddos know! ha! The words “back to school” are not something they want to hear just yet. Summer is just too much fun. ;)

I have one kiddo still at home & in preschool. He has just figured out how to write his name, & he loves letters & reading. So I decided to make this easy DIY Book Ledge Reading Nook for his room. It’s a great spot to display his books, & it encourages us to read more. I also added a fun ABC vinyl decal above it. We love picking out the letters in our name. :) I think the more kiddos are read to & exposed to letters the better they’ll do in school. So to see how I made these book ledges with baseboards (yes, baseboards!) keep reading! :)

So today I’m excited to be featuring 13 tempting desserts that were linked up to last week’s {wow me} wednesday party. Don’t forget this week’s party is still going on right {HERE}.

Our Visit to North Carolina

Hello! Did you miss me last week? I bet you didn’t even know I was gone! ha! ;) Thank goodness for pre-scheduled posts & social media shares. ;) We were actually gone all week visiting the beautiful area of western North Carolina. I usually say I grew up in Texas, but we did live 4 years near Asheville, North Carolina from 5th grade until 8th grade when we moved back to Texas. So I have a little Carolina girl in me, too! ;) It was so nice to go back & visit. My older two boys & hubby attended Camp Daniel Boone most of the week, while my daughters & youngest son got to hang out with me in Maggie Valley & Cherokee, North Carolina. We had a blast! So keep reading to see some of what we did in beautiful North Carolina. :)
