A Year Of Inexpensive Date Ideas

Inexpensive Date Ideas Major Hoff Takes A Wife

     The other day, I was thinking back to my very first Valentine’s Day as a young bride. I was so excited that I had someone so special to share it with, but it turns out the US Army decided we shouldn’t spend it together. HA! Isn’t that how it goes??!!!! My wonderful husband sent me the most beautiful bouquet of roses. It was such a thoughtful gesture while he was away. And let’s be honest - a flower delivery ANY time of the year is one of the best gifts. How awesome is it to open that door and see that cheerful bouquet of flowers?

     One of my favorite parts of any holiday is when it involves gift giving. I love to buy unique gifts that remind me of a past memory, a trip taken, or an adventure that's on our list of places to go. One Christmas, on the heels of a trip to Europe,  I gave my husband a giant basket of items all from Germany that I found at Cost Plus World Market.

    I love to do the same thing with Valentine's Day gifts. This year, I decided to do an "Italian Romance" theme. Italy is renowned for being romantic. Who doesn't conjure up images of cozy gondola rides, shared spaghetti, or cozy fires with a glass of red wine?

     It’s winter in Texas, which means lots of rainy days. Which I can totally get on board with, because nothing says rainy days like comfort food! When it’s cold and dark outside, I just want to hibernate inside and tuck in to a big bowl of soup and lots of bread. Of course, mine is of the gluten free kind, but for the rest of the family, they are usually treated to this garlic pull apart bread.

    It’s so simple to make, and tastes completely homemade, but without any of the work! So many of you loved my Cranberry Orange Pull Apart Bread that I knew I just had to share how I make a savory pull apart garlic bread. Same concept, just different flavors!

20 Plus clever kitchen organization ideas and hacks to claim the kitchen clutter beast.

    We are halfway through January and so we are in the thick of the New Year organization madness! I spent the weekend at Ikea picking up a few things to organize my kitchen and pantry a little bit better. It’s the center of our house, and in some ways, the room the boys spend most of their time in. I swear those boys NEVER stop eating! One of my most popular organizing posts ever was this post on how to DIY a custom silverware drawer with craft wood and hot glue. I actually created these dividers in 2014, and they made it through for 2 years. Last year, I went ahead and used my nail gun to secure them. I could have used the glue again, but decided I was so happy with them, I was okay with them being there permanently.
