Diet Coke "It's Mine" Glass Bottle #shop

Coca-Cola has done it again! They have come out with the most spectacular 12oz. Diet Coke “It’s Mine” bottles.  Each glass bottle is uniquely designed so that you’ll never find a bottle exactly like the one you are holding! You can pick the unique bottle of your choice, one that best matches you and your personality, and it is still the same great Diet Coke taste we all love.

I was walking through Target the other day and fell in love with the uniquely wrapped Diet Coke “It’s Mine” glass bottles.  The extra special touch is that Target and Coca Cola provide an exclusive bottle carrier to assist with keeping your glass bottles from breaking during your travels – so thoughtful and creative!

Our holiday season was filled with family, fun memories and exciting events… but I must say I am still exhausted.  I feel like I am finally getting caught up on normal life and actually getting around to cleaning the house. Yikes! #thestruggleisreal 

 I took some time to look back on all of the fun we had with our two littles, and I am so thankful for our first holiday season as a family of four.  Enjoy a photo {recap} of some of our festive holiday memories. Continue Reading

Christmas Tablescape - table

Eat, Drink & Be Merry | Christmas Themed Tablescapes

I don’t know about you but I love a beautiful & decked-out Christmas themed tables cape! I also know that I have an extreme dislike for hand-washing all of the crystal dishes after the meal.  This Christmas, I have decided to forgo dish washing altogether and ultimately lessen the stress of the day!  I came up with a creative, inexpensive and beautiful table set up, all of which will be easily thrown away after it’s use.  An easy clean up will allow for more quality time shared with my loved ones.

I have created a sample adult and kids table to show you just how easy it can be to  make your table look fantastic, while keeping everything disposable and easy on the clean up.  Simple little touches can go a long way and make your table special! Continue Reading

The gift we made last year went over so well that I wanted to share my easy tutorial with you.  If you are anything like me and you are still scrambling to find the perfect item to make, this is a great and easy option. Continue Reading
