How I Brightened My Teeth at Home with Smile Brilliant

I get a lot of compliments on my smile, and it means a lot to me.  For most of my childhood, I had ugly teeth, and I developed the habit of hiding my smile behind my hands.  As my permanent teeth came in, I made sure to take care of them.  I am still sensitive about the appearance of my teeth, but my recent experience with Smile Brilliant just gives me even more reason to smile big.

Make a Decorative Chalkboard with Giant Crayon Banks from the Dollar Store

School has started or will be starting soon. Whether you're looking to update your kids' homework space or make a photo prop for back to school, a chalkboard is the way to go.   I decided to use four large crayon pencil banks from Dollar Tree to make a fun chalkboard for my kid's art center.  It makes a fun piece of wall art, and doubles as a place for them to doodle.

How to Make the World's Most Obnoxious Texas Mum for a Friend

I'm not from Texas, but I did go to high school here. I just kind of assumed that every high school had the tradition of homecoming mums. Apparently I was wrong. It turns out that homecoming mums are a uniquely Texas tradition, and that these mums have become 500% bigger since I was in high school. So when it was time to say goodbye to two members of my local blogger's group, OF COURSE I had to send them off with a loud, obnoxious Texas mum. Keep reading to learn how you can make one, too!

DIY Night Light Round Up

When I sleep, the room needs to be completely dark for me to be comfortable. Any light in the room and I just can't fall asleep! My husband can nod off with the TV or radio on, but not me. Pitch black room, please!


My kids are a completely different story. They HAVE to have a light on in their rooms at bedtime. All four of them insist on some sort of night light or they just cannot sleep! One of my sons needs a very bright light, the other two prefer a soft light, and my daughter likes her light projected onto the ceiling. This way she can look up at the "stars" on her ceiling and feel calm and safe as she falls asleep. I indulge all their night time lighting needs because a calm child is a child who is going to fall asleep faster, and sleep better.
