Top 5 Blog Posts

I started this blog in January of 2010 as a creative outlet as I discovered who I was as a wife, a mom and a person. Through the years I have written many many posts {they number into the thousands!} and some have resonated more than others.

Here are the most popular posts that have been written and published on

1. What Not to Buy at the Dollar Store

Who knew that a post about things that you buy at the dollar store would strike such a chord but it did! Even though it's only a dollar, we want to spend our money well and not be stuck buying junk. This post came into existence because I live far too close to The Dollar Tree and was finding myself there quite often. The comment section is pure gold!

2. Inside a Fixer Upper Clients Home After the Show

My son started looking for colleges and had it narrowed down to a few in Texas. We went to visit and I was able to make a connection with a past client on the HGTV hit show Fixer Upper. She revealed to us that you don't get to keep the staged furniture after the show and was kind enough to photograph and share what her home looks like now as her family of four settle comfortably into their new home.

3. How to Get the Fixer Upper Look without Being on the Show

We can't all be on the show, so why not live like we have been. Check out some of the items that were used to stage an actual Fixer Upper home as seen in season 3 and some similar items that you can purchase that won't break your budget.

4. Exclusive Interview with Season 3 Client on Fixer Upper

What can I say, you guys love your Fixer Upper! Plus, what's not to love when it comes to some really fun insider information. 

5. Teen Cell Phone Contract

This is probably my most plagiarized post. I've had people claim credit for this content in several very large outlets. We created this out of need. Our oldest son was getting his first cell phone {at the age of 14} and we needed a way to help educate him on proper cell phone use. You can still get the original teen cell phone contract here, or find one that has been updated with smartphone use here.
