  • Tiny Homes

    YouTube Preview Image

    The tiny home trend is on the rise throughout the country. It’s crazy to me that you can get everything you need in under 200 square feet. I’ve been out at Maximus Extreme Living Solutions in West Haven doing commercials, video and a story for Wasatch View magazine’s April edition.  It’s been a great experience.

    They have been featured on HGTV and FYI Network and will be at the Standard-Examiner Spring Home and Garden show this weekend. So if you’ve ever wanted to see inside a tiny home, now is your chance to check one out.

  • Kitchen Inspiration

    Post Image

    I’ve been dreaming about my new kitchen and been spending way too much time on Pinterest.

    If we get the home we want, the one built in the 80’s, we will completely remodel the kitchen. The kitchen nook is a little awkward so I’ve been looking at different ideas to make it flow.

    I absolutely love this option from buzzbuzzhome.com. f07a7bca49a5b719b4d46d8e96de41a0

    This option from diyyourcrafts.com is my absolute favorite. It fits my style perfectly. Isn’t it just gorgeous? Just not sure how well it would hold up with a house full of boys!

  • Celebrating LOVE everyday

    Post Image

    Happy Valentine’s Day!

    It’s cold and snowy and half of my family is in sunny St. George for baseball.

    Our first Valentine’s together Mac said to me, “Why do we need a day to celebrate love, we should celebrate love everyday!”

    19 1/4 years later and we’re still celebrating LOVE everyday! So tomorrow when today is over, remember to keep celebrating the ones you LOVE <3

    Have you seen thesIMG_2057e gorgeous wood flowers on social media and Pinterest? They are absolutely gorgeous and have a timeless look to them. They are made right here is Ogden, yet they sell them throughout the country. I stopped by Eco Flower to last week to do a story for Wasatch View. You can watch all of this week’s show here.

  • Party Slush

    Post Image

    Here’s the thing, this is the best slush ever and it is perfect for every occasion. The problem is I can never find the recipe for it. The recipe comes from my friend Cyd. Last time she gave it to me I told her I would write it down. Her response, “ya right.” So I’m not only writing it down, I’m also putting it here and on Pinterest.

    Here is the original recipe for Marla’s Slush. I like original recipes, but hopefully you can read it. One change I make is I add frozen raspberries instead of the fruit mentioned.

  • Superbowl Party Ideas

    It’s really bad when I start laughing so hard I can’t stop! That’s what happened in this week’s show when Joan and I try to do a football quiz. I should know this stuff! I mean I do have SIX boys who love football! Oh well, at least I can plan a party and make the game fun for them. If the video doesn’t come up, watch it here.
