Throwback Thursdays – Is your yard ready for your 4th of July party?

The 4th of July Holiday is almost here! This is a Holiday that I look forward to every year because of celebration with family, fireworks and the best barbecue ever! But if you have a family as large as my family there is rarely ever enough seating for everyone. So how I’ve searched High & Low (On Pintrest! LOL) for great ways to spruce up a yard for the holiday. http://jonesdesigncompany.com/our-house/our-backyard/

Here’s one from Jones design company, I love it. It’s a small yard with great seating for a great family gathering.  Check out there website.

Yard after


Now here’s a great one for both kids and adults.  Everyone loves twister & this one is so easy.  Cut a hole in the bottom of a box & spray paint the circles.



Here’s a gorgeous idea for the evening dinner party.


For a large family, set up lots of tables with 4th of July colors.

Throwback Thursday’s – Before & After Remodels

Hi Everyone,

It’s “Throwback Thursday” again.  Today I thought I would talk about a very important area in your new home!  Your laundry room!

How many of you have viewed homes and walked into a laundry room that looks like this?

Old Laundry Room

Well maybe not that bad, but you get my point right :).  There are so many homes that are for sale with neglected laundry rooms.  This is a part of the home that many people don’t want to be in for a very long time.  So why not make it a comfortable gorgeous space?

Like this…..

Or this……

Laundry Room 2

Or this…..

Laundry Room 3


Love the organization of all three, makes some of us want to spend a few extra minutes in the laundry room, right 🙂

So I’ve found a few great before and after remodels on Pintrest.

Here’s a great one!  Just a a few cabinets, a little paint, and decorate to your taste.

Happy Thursday! Hope your week has been well so far. Thanks for checking in for Throwback Thursdays! This week I’ve fell in love with a basement remodel.

While searching for homes, you may find that many have unfinished basements. Which can be a great thing because you can remodel it the way you want! So here’s a great basement remodel found on Pintrest posted by Utah Style! Check out their site! http://bit.ly/1qwr6uL

Throwback Thursdays!

Hello Everyone,

Hope you enjoyed our “Throwback Thursday” last week, if you missed it check it out here. http://wp.me/p3Z3N3-aI There were a few great remodels!

Each week I will post great before and after photos of home remodels and connect you with the blogs that have shared this great information. Some will even give step by step directions for great home remodels.  Many of you are already looking at homes but you’ve allowed so many to slip through your fingers because when you walk in you see old carpet, old kitchens or baths.  You’ve also let a few go by because of ugly exterior or landscaping.

So I’m writing this blog each week to show you that these things can be changed!

So here’s the 1st great transformation for this week! ***Please note: If a link is not available, please click directly on the photo for details.

What’s Your Gift To Dad On Fathers Day?

My dad’s favorite gift that I’ve given him on Fathers day was a set of grilling tools, cookware, and a few grilling cookbooks  As you can see my dad loves to grill.  And we love for him to grill, of course because of the great food.  🙂  My dad is normally the hardest person to shop for because he doesn’t do much, he loves to grill and he loves to watch TV. Grill Plus SignFlat Screen TV So this year as I search for gift idea’s online, I decided to write a post because now I’ve found so many great idea’s and I thought I would share them with everyone because your dad may be hard to shop for also, but hopefully not as difficult as my father is.  🙂 I find a lot of ideas on Pintrest and also Amazon.  Some of you may want to do something small and other’s may want to go as big as making dad a new man cave.  So here are some of the ideas that I love.  You can just adjust them to your dad’s specific taste.
