Chicken Caesar Salad Wrap


Every time we visit Nashville Shelby likes to go to his favorite restaurant, Jackson's Bar and Bistro and he always gets the Chicken Caesar Salad Wrap. Since we don't make it to Tennessee very often, I started recreating this meal at home. It's a good thing too because I don't even see this on their menu anymore. (Don't you hate it when a restaurant cuts your favorite dish?) These wraps are great in the summer because they have a light, fresh taste and are quick and easy to throw together. Enjoy!

Dinosaur Excavation

If you have a budding archaeologist, why not take them on a fun little dino dig? :)

Of course, if your little one isn't into dinosaurs, the bones could be of whatever animal they like.


Just fill a shoe box with a few cups of uncooked rice and toss in a handful of uncooked macaroni.

Beer Batter Maple Bacon Cupcakes


My husband and I were watching an episode of 2 Broke Girls the other day and when they made their Spring Break Beer Batter Maple Bacon Cupcakes we both decided that it was something that we had to try.

Fresh Start

It has been a long, hard six months but we are finally starting to rebuild our life. I am beyond ready to put all of the ugliness behind us and I am excited to see what the future holds.

There will be more detailed posts about the house later on but for now these quick before and afters seem fitting. The ugly, nasty before has been torn down, rebuilt and now the after is clean, bright, and full of color. There are lots of blank walls just begging for something fun to be made especially for them.
