I don’t need any more monthly bills! ha! ;) So I was super excited to find this tmobile free 200mb tablet at Walmart. This little tablet is amazing plus you get free data for life! Can you believe that? So keep reading to see how this tablet is helping me stay connected, get organized & stay on top of all those back to school activities. :)

How to Decorate with Clean Lines & Simple Patterns

Hello! Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! It was a hot one over here. ha! ;) If you have followed me on instagram over the past year or so you have seen some of the progress (sometimes slooooooow progress!) we made as we added an addition onto the back of our home. What a project that was! Whew! We did all of the work ourselves, and we learned a ton! I'm not sure we will ever attempt that again though! ha! ;) We did pass our final inspection in June, and now that the kiddos are back in school it's time for me to decorate! Yay! At first I was struggling a little bit on deciding how to decorate. I had bought these pillows a few months back. At first I was trying to decorate around them, but it just wasn't working out. :( I guess flowers & gray & yellow aren't my thing! ha! So I decided to go back to the clean lines & simple look that I love. Annnnd I am so excited how it is turning out. I recently received this lovely entertainment credenza from Sauder Furniture. I love the clean lines of this piece. I think it looks great with the simple patterns I’ve picked out for the room. So keep reading to see some more & to find out what style I am! :)

How to Make Your Own Soap Pumps with Palmolive #Palmolive25Ways #cbias

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #Palmolive25Ways #CollectiveBias

Hello!  Do you have a favorite dish soap? Mine hands down is Palmolive. :) My grandmother used Palmolive (remember when it only come in green?), and I have loved it since then. Plus not only is it tough on grease & soft on hands ~ you can use it in so many different ways from making bubbles, scrubbing fleas off the dog, getting oil off your driveway (it works!), soaking your hands in before a manicure & more. You can find so many different uses for soap other than just dishwashing. At our house I use Palmolive not only to wash the dishes but also as hand soap in the bathroom. I recently made these DIY soap pumps. (They are so easy to make!) So today I’m excited to show you how to make your own soap pumps, too. So keep reading to get the tutorial. :)
