I participated in an Ambassador Program on behalf of Influence Central for Anheuser-Busch's Family Talk About Drinking Program. I received a promotional item to thank me for me participation. I found the topic of underage drinking to be a timely at this time of the year - graduations, proms, special dances - all signs of growing up, and all circumstances when a child might be presented with challenges and circumstances related to alcohol. I thought parenting little ones was tough...and it is, but compared to the challenges, obstacles, and decisions kids face as they grow up, that seems like a piece of cake!

Good advice from Certified educator and parent coach MJ Corcoran

I can hardly believe it has almost been one year since we moved from California to Texas...and, no, the transition has not been easy, but we have found a few bright spots, and on of them are the sweet notes my daughter has received from her friends back home.

I adore topiaries and was very excited to work with Balsam Hill on creating beautiful Spring decor with their Boxwood Topiaries.

Growing up my family spent most of our time outdoors. We did not have people over for dinner parties - we had them over for barbecues! For my own personal style, I am somewhere in the middle. I love a casual gathering with friends, good food, and fabulous decor...and I especially love when it is outdoors. When the weather is good, I make every effort to be outdoors, and am so excited to share this (gorgeous) rustic chic outdoor buffet - perfect for Spring or Summer..or in this case Mother's Day!
fresh air, rustic elegance, and beautiful box wood topiaries create the perfect setting for brunch.

Mother's Day is HERE (basically). I know I have no gifts for anyone...and then as I was searching for something else, I found this floursack towel I made last year (or quite possibly the year before) with my daughters artwork...TA-DA! Magical, melt-your-heart cuteness for Mother's Day!

I moved almost one year ago and today I am excited to share with you my experiences as part of the Skybell blog program with One2One Network.

We bought a home in brand-spanking new neighborhood and never in my life have I had more solicitors and people at my door! Between pulling the kids out of the pool, stopping my gardening or securing the new puppy, I was spending a lot of time going back and forth to answer my door. I knew there had to be a better way to deal with this, other than ignoring the doorbell (because sometimes it is a neighbor coming to visit!)...and then I was introduced to Skybell. With Skybell I can see, hear, and speak to whoever is at my door (even if I am not there!)

Today we had a neighborhood Easter Egg hunt and my daughter wanted a special "something" to wear. It was a pretty casual party so I decided to make a Bunny T-Shirt inspired by my Bunny Banner. Now of course, I had my own ideas...but my daughter had HER OWN ideas too. She won (mostly) and I admit her idea to put stripes on the bunny was a good one!.

I can hardly believe it has almost been one year since I moved from California to Texas. During that move, I called on past moving experience, advice from friends, and did a lot of research. I shared one of my favorite moving tips (which by the way kept me pretty darn organized once we got to Texas and started unpacking!) awhile back, but today I am sharing my Hometalk Moving Tips and Tricks Board with you.

Awhile back a VERY sweet friend gave me a ton of big gorgeous organic Meyer lemons What to do - what to make! These were some of the most gorgeous lemons I had ever seen (for real!). I quickly decided I needed to get cracking...and so I did. I made (Meyer) limoncello, (Meyer) lemon Curd and Preserved (Meyer) Lemons. (no Meyer lemons? ...you can use good ole lemons for this too!)

Salt, lemons, juice and a jar are all you need to make preserved lemons for use in your favorite recipes.
