BUT I live in ND, and […]]]> 1 Easy, Homemade Chicken Alfredo Mon, 23 Mar 2015 20:50:41 +0000 I am a sucker for pasta. I could make AND EAT pasta for every meal of the week. It started when I was young–probably in utero. It’s a never-ending love I have a feeling. I had a grandma who we visited OFTEN. When we’d visit, it was a pretty typical sight to see her dining […]]]> 0 DIY Board and Batten Front Entry Sat, 21 Mar 2015 14:58:32 +0000 I’m a bit of a detail freak. A perfectionist, I guess. I refuse to start a project unless I have a clear idea how I am going to handle every little intricate aspect. That’s probably why I put off this DIY board and batten project in our front entry for so long. There were four […]]]> 12 Easton Nightstand Plan Mon, 09 Mar 2015 12:38:37 +0000 Happy Monday! The weather is finally starting to warm up here and it looks like spring is on the way. Today, I want to share our latest plan: the Easton DIY Nightstand plan. Why “Easton”?

Here’s a recipe that gets requested EVERY TIME I make it for someone–whether we have guests over or I deliver it to a new mommy! It never fails that I get good reviews on this one–I should just start bringing a copy of the recipe along when I deliver this […]]]> 7 19 Original DIY Shelving Ideas Fri, 27 Feb 2015 04:39:38 +0000 Last week I put together a board on Hometalk of some of my favorite unique DIY shelving projects. I had so much fun looking at all of the unique shelving ideas, I probably could have spent all day on it! In case you’re not familiar, Hometalk is a website that allows you to “clip” (kind […]]]> 0 How to Build a DIY Train Table Thu, 19 Feb 2015 01:35:12 +0000 What do my wife and Matt Foley, the motivational speaker, have in common? No, she doesn’t live in a van down by the river. But they have both crushed their share of tables.   Click here for the FREE plan! Our youngest son is a sweet kid, but sometimes it seems like he can’t catch […]]]> 0 Fudgy, Cheesecake Brownie Bars Wed, 18 Feb 2015 15:46:42 +0000 Fudge. Cheesecake. Brownie. Need I say more? Here is a deliciously rich and dare I say “pretty” bar that can be made for any occasion. Best of all, they are easy to make–they start with a layer of boxed brownies! I love desserts that don’t require a ton of steps and ingredients. The end result, […]]]> 0 DIY Train Table Plan Tue, 10 Feb 2015 13:31:57 +0000 If you’ve spent any time on the interwebs lately, you’ve probably noticed that farmhouse tables are kind of a thing. We didn’t really want to miss a ride on that bandwagon, but we don’t need a dining table. What we did need, however, was a new train table for our son. See, his old one […]]]> 0 How to Trim a Window Wed, 28 Jan 2015 13:31:22 +0000 When we moved into our house, all of the windows were finished with sheetrock returns.
