Blackberry Mint Cherry Limeade

Pin It Blackberry Mint Cherry Limeade Pinterest
It’s hot in Texas. The July heat is upon us. My kids are going crazy for fruity fun drinks, but I have no desire to put them in the car and go through a drive thru.
Even during happy hour, those drinks are expensive! Cherry Limeade is at the top of our summer cravings list. As are blackberries and cherries. Why not combine them?

How Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint Saved A Damaged Dresser

Pin It Damaged Dresser saved with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint
I love a good makeover, don’t you? There is something so refreshing about taking something old, worn, scarred, beaten and broken and giving it a new life. This little dresser with 3 drawers came to me in bad shape. Missing some original hardware, lots of veneer that was chipping, and stains galore. Oh, and it was dirty and smelly. But with a little bit of love, a lot of elbow grease, a helping of Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint in Linen, and this piece has a new lease on life.

25+ Free Apps for kids recommended by other Moms

Pin It
One of my kids favorite things about vacation time is being able to play video games when we are traveling. During a regular summer day their screen time is limited. I asked you, my wonderful readers via social media channels, what your favorite tried and true apps for kids were. And boy did you deliver! Not only did you give me good quality games, but at least 25 are totally free! Score! Just a note—not all the 4+ are necessarily for little kids—I know plenty of adults that love them too!

Whoa….I know. It’s been an entire month. I appreciate all your patience while I was recovering from my kidney issues. I’m on the mend and am ready to kick this party back up. This week I want to focus on the wonderful ladies who posted home & room tours on the linky party. They are pretty spectacular and deserve a second look!
