Back to School with LLZ by LockerLookz

It's getting to be that time of year again . . . Back to School!! Did you love it or hate it as a kid?  To this day I LOVE new school supplies. Fresh pens, folders and binders?  Yes, please.  And, to be perfectly honest, I was a little bit nerdy.  I genuinely liked learning.  The only drawback was that we moved around a lot -- like, A LOT -- so it felt like I was always the new kid who didn't know where to go or what to do.  Plus, I was pretty shy and also {remember} nerdy, so that was a struggle.  As a mom, I try to focus on the positive and make back-to-school shopping a fun treat for my three kiddos.  The older they get, though, the harder they are to impress.  Gone are the days when a new box of crayons could elicit a happy dance.  My daughter, a JUNIOR this year, has hit her "senior slump" about a year and a half early.  Thankfully, we discovered LLZ by LockerLookz!

My Outdoor Chalkboard Project on Craftaholics Anonymous Today

Outdoor Chalkboard project for Craftaholics Anonymous® by
Hi guys!  Today I'm sharing another project over at Craftaholics Anonymous®.  This month I made this BIG outdoor chalkboard to cover up one of the spots I have always hated about my little fixer-upper house -- the sidelight window next to the front door.  It's made out of 1x3 pine boards and Hardiebacker cement board so it will withstand just about any weather that may come our way.  Our porch feels so much more cheerful and welcoming with this decorative touch, PLUS sometimes it's really fun to work with power tools!  Never fear -- this is still a really easy project that just about anyone can make.  Head on over and check it out!

Have a great day!

Old Fashioned Butterscotch Ice Cream

This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group™ and Wet-Nap but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia #showusyourmess

Old Fashioned Butterscotch Ice Cream recipe at
Hello, friends!  One of my favorite things about summer is ice cream.  I can't seem to get enough of it -- especially the homemade variety.  One of the things I loved about visiting my grandparents as a child was helping grandpa make raspberry ice cream with the raspberries we picked in the garden.  It was heavenly.  So, when I spotted an old fashioned ice cream maker at the thrift store a while back I HAD to buy it.  I don't have a raspberry patch in my yard, but there was a recipe for Old Fashioned Butterscotch Ice Cream in the instruction manual of my old school ice cream maker that is equally delicious!

Take Back Vanilla

#TakeBackVanilla with these creamy rootbeer drinks at
Hi guys!  In my humble opinion, there is not much in life that isn't vastly improved with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top of it.  {You can take that advice to the bank, my friends.} Maybe it's because I'm vanilla.  My little family is vanilla through and through.  I have been happily married to my first {and only} love for the past 18 years.  We have 3 great kids and a dog.  We live in a little house on a quiet street in the suburbs.  We're vanilla and I love it!
