Flirty Apron Tutorial

A darling flirty apron tutorial that is super easy!

Being a busy wife and mom, I tend to spent a decent amount of my time in the kitchen.  Let's be honest, when you're in the kitchen - your first thought isn't about your appearance, right?!?  You are focused on getting the meal prepped!!  Who knew that throwing on a SUPER cute apron would not only change the way you feel about yourself....BUT...it would be a "turn-on" to the hubby as well!?!   I have seen these types of cutesy aprons everywhere and I'd been...

Love Story: Kristen and Jason

Love Story: Kristen and Jason.

ACTUALLY, it all started one Thursday night, the summer of 2003, when fellow diva, Tara and my sister, Tara, decided to introduce me to the crazy world of Country Dancing! I guess as a High School senior I looked old enough to pass for a college student. So I coyly made my way into Trolley Square with the “Taras.”

It wasn't long before I could smell the most yummy smell that I will always remember (and still smell on a regular basis…) Abercrombie's "Fierce"...

Create Your Own Pep Rally Date

Host your own pep rally football party!

Yep! It's that time of year again...where the pig-skins get thrown around.  My spouse and I are actually not a "sports loving" couple.  We hardly ever watch games just to watch games...instead, we like the social aspect of it all. :)

This weekend we invited a bunch of friends over for a Pep Rally before we headed off to a High School Football Game.  We thought it would be fun to find a local High School and watch one of their games.....as FANS!  It's...

Setting The Mood

Setting the mood with music.

My husband and I recently decided to choose two nights of the week and make it a "NO T.V." night. On our very first "NO T.V." night, we put the baby to bed and went about the night getting things done that we usually wouldn't do because we would be sitting in front of the T.V.

Well, to my surprise, I started hearing music play. My hubby had put a CD that he made for me when we were dating, into the CD Player. ALL love songs! It definitely set the mood for the...

The past couple Friday nights my husband has come home from work and surprised me with a stack full of movies that he checked out from the library.  This has been something I look forward to on the weekends now.  It's always fun to see what movies he found and that he thought about me by picking out several chick flicks.

Friday nights are our nights where we just want to put the baby to bed and snuggle up watching a movie, after a long week of...
