Remember when I said last week that I want to find ways to add kale to our meals? This broccoli kale slaw is making the list for sure.

I’m hoping my family will flip for these quesadillas filled with breakfast foods, because they look so good!

This chicken skillet dinner looks amazing and would be an easy weeknight meal.

Goodness, I think I’m going to have to make these incredible cream cheese brownies with toffee and pecans soon!


This has got to be one of the cleverest ways to use old wine corks that I’ve seen in a long time – I’m already thinking of the people in my life who would enjoy getting a wine cork pendant necklace as a gift.

We always seem to wear out our fitted sheets before the top ones, so I’m excited to find this tutorial on how to make a flat sheet into a fitted one!

I’m loving this neon dip tote bag – a great way to add a bright and fun accent for the warmer months.

I can never get enough organizing tips so I’m finding this post on how to organize your house really motivating – and really pretty, too!

This diy tic-tac-toe game made with painted rocks and wood is seriously cute – it’s making me anxious for the days of hanging out in the backyard with the kiddos!

Here’s a fun and unique idea – make cute flower planters using large cardboard paper mache initials.

I really like the way this front door and porch makeover refreshed this porch – especially the color choice for the door.

This recycled key wind chime looks like a quick – and quirky – craft to do with the kids. Now just to start collecting old keys…

Spring always makes me think about spiffing up the outside of our home, so I found these ideas to add curb appeal to your home really inspiring!
