Family Fun: Candid Photoshoot

How to plan a candid family photo shoot!

A photo says a thousand words and freezes time for just one moment.

When was the last time you had family pictures taken?  At my house it has become a yearly tradition.  Every Fall we capture very special, extremely candid moments.  Some of my favorite photos end up being the ones we weren't even posing for!  How fun would it be to take this idea one step further by creating a family video. That is just what this inspirational blog did (love this)!...

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...

I had my neighbor come show me how to make these adorable and addicting rosettes that you can use for just about anything.

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...

Couples Halloween Costumes Ideas

Vote for your favorite Halloween couples costumes!

I LOVE Halloween. The candy, the decorations, the parties, and the COSTUMES! I have always loved dressing up and it became even better when I got married and could pair up with my spouse! He doesn't always love my ideas, but he's pretty good to go with the flow. Most of the time.

While I was brainstorming this years costume, I thought it would be fun to see what the other Diva's have dressed up as before. They were good sports and consented to letting me share with...

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...
