Home Update: Swapping Doorknobs. (+ How-To Video)

October 24, 2018

I love adding details that can bring character to a home….even down to the doorknobs! I am the design nerd who would take note of all of the old knobs in old homes. I love the details, and how they speak about the era of design. After we put together some of the rooms in our home, I thought it was time to switch out the wobbly knobs for some sturdier options. I loved the styles of the new custom door hardware collection from Schlage. Considering the good quality we experienced with our front and back door, I went ahead and continued with the dark finishes throughout the house. We are sharing some before and after examples, as well as a simple video on how to change a doorknob in case you are ready to make some switches in your own home!

Crock Pot Carnitas Rancheros Recipe

October 22, 2018


This week’s feeding the fam recipe is one of my favorites to make year round. It is delicious, and all of my children gobble it up in seconds which is a rare feat. You can prep this in the crock pot or insta pot, and have plenty of meat to feed a crowd. I’m calling it Carnitas Rancheros because it’s a mix of two of my favorite hispanic dishes: Carnitas and Huevos Rancheros.


Happy October Weekend! (Best links from around the web.)

October 19, 2018


Happy October weekend! The cooler temps finally hit the south, and I have every intention of taking advantage of the outdoors with the kids! It’s been a while since I have done a link round up, so here is the best from the web this week!


Prioritizing relationships in a busy life.

October 18, 2018


Life is currently as full as it gets (and I don’t think that will be changing anytime soon!), so we are always looking for ways to make time for the things that matter most to us. We are excited to partner with Signature by Levi Strauss & Co. to share a closer look at our week, and the ways we are carving time for the most important things.

A Guide to Building a Capsule Wardrobe.

October 17, 2018


It is so easy to get stuck in a cycle of purchasing what we think we “need” or impulse buy if we feel it is something that will make us happy to own. However, the collection of things very rarely leads to contentment. 80 billion pieces of clothing are consumed every year globally. (source) What?! Average Americans throw away over 70 lbs of textiles every year! (source)

I  myself found that I had little control over my clothing spending, and had a closet full of clothes that I wasn’t even all that crazy about. After trying my first capsule wardrobe, my spending halted altogether. I also felt a freedom from the heaviness that excess and materialism tend to leave in our impulsive paths. It not only slimmed down the visual clutter, but freed up all the clutter mentally. It doesn’t have to be boring either! This was my bold color summer capsule. I knew the items I chose to use were ones that fit me well and made me feel myself! They were pieces I could use all season long, and I didn’t have to spend any time trying to find things that paired together.

Husky Chili Recipe

October 14, 2018


We keep getting requests for what we feed our big family, so we thought it was time to bring back recipe posts! We are always experimenting with clean ingredient recipes, and finding things that are relatively low cost that everyone will actually eat. Gabe is a master at working with flavors, so today his is sharing his husky and hearty chili recipe we used this weekend that fed over 25 people! We had a bunch of family over for dinner, so we doubled this recipe for an extra large batch. Scroll to the bottom to copy the recipe!


Family Halloween Costume Ideas.

October 12, 2018


We know many of our readers don’t have facebook or instagram, so here is a compilation of all of our past family costumes, and a plea to help us figure out this year’s! Any votes?? My mom and dad always made every holiday come alive for us, and I hope to continue this with my own family. I don’t know how long they will be on board for family costumes, but so far they have loved it…..
