Answer Your Door from Anywhere with Skybell WiFi Video Doorbell (GIVEAWAY)

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!)

How to Make an (Easy) Painted Bunny T-Shirt

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!.

Helpful Moving Tips and Tricks: A Hometalk Board

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.

How to Preserve Lemons

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.
