How We’re Saving Big on Home Renovations with the Albert Lee Warehouse Sale

Homeownership is not for the faint of heart, and as many of you know, we’ve had some struggles along the way. Not only is buying a home expensive but so are all of the things that come with it! When we moved in over 2 years ago, I had major plans for updating our kitchen, especially the outdated appliances from the 1970s. Then we spent thousands and thousands of dollars on unexpected repairs and surprises, those plans were a bit foiled. 

Enter the solution to my appliance dreams: the Albert Lee Warehouse Sale!

This October 26 and 27th, the Albert Lee Appliance Warehouse will open its doors for an appliance sale, unlike anything you’ve seen!

Fall Sneaker Style with Clarks

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Zappos. All opinions are our own!

As the fall leaves begin to change color, I’m quickly transitioning into full-on autumn-mode. We just turned the heat on in our home, our front porch is decorated with mums and pumpkins galore, and our wardrobes are quickly changing from short sleeves to cozy sweaters. I’ve packed away my sandals for the year and lately have been craving comfortable sneakers and boots instead.

Just in time for fall, Dave and I are thrilled to partner with Clarks and Zappos to share how we’re creating sneakers outfit ideas for him and her!

How I Power my Day with Cascade Ice

When it comes to the mid-day slump, it can throw a wrench in an otherwise productive day. Come three o’clock, and I often go from energized to feeling like I could use a nap! For someone self-employed, this can be a frustrating occurrence and it is why I like to find pick-me-ups that work.

How I Power My Day with Cascade Ice

Disclosure: Thanks to Cascade Ice for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own.

Fortunately, over the past several months, I’ve been partnering with Cascade Ice Water to try out their brand new caffeinated sparkling water beverage! It comes in four great flavors and is made with just three ingredients: carbonated water, natural organic flavor, and organic caffeine. If you’re like me and can’t get enough sparkling water in your life, you’ll love this drink! It’s not sweetened however, the natural organic flavor adds just the right hint of grapefruit, black raspberry, pomegranate mango, or citrus to the beverage.

Today, I thought I’d share the six activities that Cascade Ice Caffeinated has helped power this summer!

7 Fall Flavors that You Need from Whole Foods

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Whole Foods Market.

With fall’s crisp chill in the air, it’s no wonder I’ve all but completely switched into fall mode. In the kitchen, things are changing too! I’m moving away from the bright flavors of citrus and summer fruits and transitioning to the spicy, creamy, and sweet wonders that make up the flavors of fall. When I think of fall flavors, I think of pumpkin spice, maple, apple, and all of the creamy comfort foods that warm me up.

Whole Foods Market Fall Flavors Products

What can I say, I’m a little basic and couldn’t wait until September 1st hit so I could get my pumpkin spice fix! At this time of year, you can find me walking down every aisle of the store and grabbing anything with “pumpkin spice” in the name. Fortunately, Whole Foods Market gets me and recently released its limited-time seasonal products!

With everything from sweet to savory to sippable, they’ve got something for everyone. (Yes, even the pumpkin spice hater will find something they’ll love!)

Today, I thought I’d highlight my favorite fall-flavored products available right now at your local Whole Foods Market!

We’re Engaged!

Apparently all it takes to get your partner to pop the question is to plan a trip to Disneyland without them.

I kid, I kid.

But in all seriousness, on Friday, September 20th, I had the surprise of my life. (So far, anyway!)

We're Engaged: Disneyland Engagement

Let me back up and explain how this all came to be. My friend Holly, who I met when I got hired at JCPenney when I was 16, and I had planned a trip to Orange County for fun. She’s been dying to hit Disneyland since she hadn’t been since she was a kid, and with the new Star Wars: Galaxy Edge opening, knew it was the perfect time to visit. I’m always down for a visit to the Happiest Place on Earth, so we began planning in July for a mid-September trip.
