Tis’ the season for haunted happenings! Whether you’re hosting a gruesome dinner party, a costume contest, or a pumpkin carving party, you definitely need the right music to set the mood.

Family Halloween Books

It’s no surprise around here that I love holidays and the traditions they bring. We’ve started a lot of different traditions in our house, but one of my favorites is the seasonal books that I bring out for each major holiday. I remember my mom doing the same thing when I was growing up and…

I find that people either love or hate root beer…there’s no in between. I’m a fellow root beer lover and especially love it during the month of October! It’s become one of my Halloween traditions to make this homemade root beer recipe each year and it pairs perfectly with a good Halloween movie and some…

Cantaloupe and Lime Agua Fresca

One of the best things about summer is definitely all of the fresh produce and seasonal fruit that you can find in so many different places. The grocery store, the farmers market, fruit stands on the side of the road, or even in your own backyard! I also love finding new ways to incorporate them…

DIY Cactus and Chalk Place Cards

Yay! It’s Friday! Is it just me or did this week just seriously draaaag! It’s the WORST! Things are looking up though, because the weekend is here and hopefully you’re going to mingle with some friends and family! (Or just spend the entire weekend inside, catching up on The Walking Dead and eating mini Cadbury…

Coffee Shooters Recipe

Usually, when I host a get-together, I struggle and spend a majority of my time trying to figure out what cocktails to serve on the menu. What type of liquor to serve, what pairs well with the meal, the type of event I’m hosting, and what variety of options I should have available. That’s a lot to wrap…

DIY Sprinkle Easter Eggs

Guys, I. Love. Sprinkles. In case you were wondering, the best combination at Cold Stone Creamery involves Sweet Cream ice cream, cookie dough, Kit Kat, and SPRINKLES. But back to the sprinkles… I’m a big believer that sprinkles make just about anything better. Including Easter eggs. Sprinkle Easter eggs….? Duh. Of course. They are bright,…

Dipped Marshmallow Pops

I’m a sucker for sweets. I don’t try to deny it. I own it. And just about everyone else in my life already knows it. Me and sugar are besties and have been for years. It’s a love/hate relationship, but somehow the sugar always wins…go figure. I usually don’t discriminate against different types of sugar,…

DIY Balloon Garlands

There’s just something about balloons. As much as I try to hate them or try to convince myself that they have past their prime, they always seem to do something that makes me fall for them all over again. (Yep, still talking about balloons here). They add the perfect touch to a birthday party and…

DIY Floral Wrap

Spring is definitely in the air and I can’t say that I’m complaining. I’ve already noticed the bulbs in my garden springing to life and these beauties that are stocking the grocery floral departments too. With Easter only a few short weeks away, I wanted to share a SUPER easy way to upgrade those grocery store…

Homemade Hot Chocolate (& Printable Stencil)

Normally, February in Utah is a bit more snowy and a bit more freezing, but lately we’ve been hitting temps in the low 60’s. Utah seems to be having a climate crisis, but a mug full of piping hot chocolate is always ok in my book, regardless of the weather. Jazz it up with a…

Strawberries & Cream Creme Brulee

If you’re looking for the perfect dessert to serve for Valentine’s Day, an anniversary, or even just a Tuesday night, this little recipe is sure to a be a hit. And those heart shaped ramekins…? They sure do elevate the cuteness factor. I got my ramekins here. The recipe is simple to put together and can…

Alt Summit Recap

Last month, I had the opportunity to attend Alt Summit for the first time. If you’ve never heard about it before, it’s a blogging/small business conference that takes place over 4 days and every single moment is jam packed! I’m not sure why I’ve never attended before, considering it’s held at the Grand America hotel…

Hot Dog Toppings

One of the reasons I love hot dogs…? They are so simple. It’s hard to mess them up. And, yeah, you might not think of serving them at anything other than a bbq, but I’m sharing five fun ways to give them an instant upgrade and impress your guests for any event. Taking a cue…

Easy DIY Foam Finger Stir Sticks

Did you catch these cute little guys making an appearance in yesterday’s cocktail post? They kinda steal the show, right? I picked up the adorable foam fingers from the Spritz party line at Target. They were meant to be finger puppets, but I had a better idea. They are beyond SIMPLE to put together and took…

Superbowl Michelada Cocktail Recipe

The big game is Sunday and I’m not sure about you, but I haven’t planned a single thing yet. I’m still recovering from the Raven’s loss. One thing I do know…I’ll be serving these tangy Superbowl Michelada cocktails! A bit of spice, a salty rim, and the cutest foam finger addition will make any football fan…
