Show + Tell No. 131


It's been a busy couple of weeks around here...I don't know about you, but every year when kids head back to school I somehow think that I am going to have a ton of extra time to accomplish. All that happens is that I end up over scheduling. I have the same problem with money...I tend to spend $100 in my head 50 different ways and then can't figure out why it doesn't go all that far in real life. The blog has been somewhat quiet, but behind the scenes we've been getting ready for Snap. So excited about all the super-fun plans underway this year! If you're thinking about getting a ticket, … [Read more...]

Eek! You guyyyyys, I love this time of year! Seriously. Fall has always been my favorite and I know it's time to get excited when football starts showing up on the telly. It's also fun, because it feels like all of the moms come back off summer vacation (don't we know it's anything but a vacation though), because the kiddies are back in school.  Kids in school = soooo many great projects!!! No theme today, just a lot of great stuff to showcase! Show + Tell Highlights Remember a week or so ago when I shared my Kate Spade inspired phone case?

Show + Tell No. 126: Homemade Ice Cream Treats

Delicious ice cream recipes via @snapconf #icecream #recipe

Let's chat. I love ice cream. I love it way too much for my own good... I blame the fact that I live in Utah, where we have the eighth highest ice cream consumption rate in the country. Well, that and the fact that my dad worked for a famous ice cream manufacturer while in college and developed a taste for the real good stuff, which he passed on to each of his kids... I've been trying to cut back this summer, but then you had to go and share some tasty recipes in last week's link-up. A batch of homemade happened, along with a selection of highlights that all feature the delicious … [Read more...]

You guys, it's not quite August and already I feel summer is coming to an end. Sad.

In the meantime, I thought we could all hang on to summer a little bit longer with a handful of the great summertime ideas that … [Read more...]

Dudes. Today I am giving myself a big fat #FAIL! Seriously. I am working on a wonderful post for next week celebrating my favorite food in the world...DONUTS. I make donuts all the time and have never had a problem, but today I am crying into my mixing bowl because I have ruined two batches!!! How does someone manage to ruin two batches of donuts you ask? Well, it's a whole lotta not paying attention apparently. You all have such lovely photos every single week. Please tell me that you occasionally have a craft (or in this case baking) fail of your own. I need to commiserate with … [Read more...]

Remember when I told you the air conditioning was broken in my house? Yeah. Well, the air conditioning is still broken in my house. Sigh...I would likely be more concerned about it, but fortunately the weather has taken a turn. It was in the 50's today - there was snow in parts of Utah! Fickle, fickle weather. Between the heat and the rain, I haven't gotten some of the DIY projects done that I would have liked to. Fortunately, you've all been keeping busy and I have some fun upcycled furniture shares for you today!   Show + Tell Highlights You're not going to believe what … [Read more...]
