A low carb version of a Bourbon Old Fashioned, also known as the original whiskey cocktail. This post is intended for audience of age 21+. The Old Fashioned has been around longer than any other cocktail. It’s already a low carb drink, aside from the sugar cube. Adding stevia is a quick and easy way…
Dill pickle soup is the perfect treat for any dill pickle lovers in your life. I’ve made a few additions to the traditional Polish recipe for dill pickle soup to make it a more well-rounded meal. Adding ham gives the soup some protein and nods to the always delicious pickle roll ups. Finally, I decided…
It’s been years since I picked up a stencil brush, and even then it’s an art form I’d never mastered. When Emily from Stencil Revolution contacted me and asked if I’d like to try out some of their stencils I jumped at the opportunity. With the new house I needed some new wall decor, and I’ve been itching to try out some crafting in my new office.
Motivation strikes at some of the strangest times. In the past couple of months the strikes have been few and far between. Often when my motivation is lacking I tend to play on social media or binge watch Netflix. It turns out, both of those things were beneficial to me in more ways than one….
It feels a bit strange to be sitting down at the computer again after over two months of chaos, but we’re finally home and I’m ready to get back into routine. Relocation The last post I wrote was back in May for American Family Insurance. In that post I shared our plans for moving, and…

Since I’m doing these actions anyway I might as well get rewarded for them too.
Last week we started in on our next big dream. Taking our backyard to the next level! Not just any backyard makeover, I’m talking one that will accomplish everything we need it to do.
We’ve always had some things in our backyard, but none of it was really planned. It was mostly just a project here or there. As an example, here’s a random painted bench next to our rhubarb, with raspberry canes in the background and a bunny waiting for her next snack from the garden. As I mentioned. Random. No focus.
Spring is traditionally the season of cleaning. Getting fresh air in the house, removing built up dust and germs, making sure the house is ready for the sun to shine and warm the surrounding world.
