Getting Ready for Sangria Season

The snow is melting in the northern hemisphere and the days are getting longer and brighter. It’s time to put away those heavy, tannin-laden red wines and dive into the lighter flavors of spring and summer. For many, that means fruitier red blends, roses and white wines. It also means breaking out some cold, refreshing sangria.

Must-Have Travel Essentials for Glamping

When it comes to traveling, we do a lot. It’s all just part of being a modern day mom. The last thing I want to do between juggling a child on vacation, and getting everything ready is have to worry about my belongings. From long flights, to just road trips on the weekend, only one company comes to mind when I pack my things away in a duffle bag, and thats Poler. Poler offers high quality stuff that looks good, is a good value and you can feel good about supporting. Though they specialize in camp type gear, they also have cool duffle bags, the napsack, a wearable sleeping bag (which spends a lot of time with me on the couch, instead of around a campfire) and much, much, more.

Beach Party Bedroom Ideas

When it comes to decorating my house, it seems like there is always something that feels like it needs to be done. Where to start? Sometimes I search the internet endlessly for inspiration and then find myself lost past the point of my motivation dying. I see bits and pieces here and there but have no idea how to put it all together! I like seeing rooms with themes, and their construction from start to finish. Things like that can be pretty hard to find!

Tackling Weeds in a DIY Flower & Garden Bed

My husband and I were really excited about planning a garden. Our backyard is mostly weeds and sand/dirt so we thought we should make something of it and create some above-ground planting boxes. Before we laid the boxes down, we needed to kill all the weeds and grass that were going to be growing underneath the boxes. While this grass would not have come in contact with the actual vegetation in the boxes, we did want to make sure to ever prevent it from growing just in case. You can lay weed blocker down and hope it works or you can use something like Spectracide which can kill any vegetation that it comes in contact with.
