Stocking Stuffers for Your Pets


This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #CollectiveBias #SimplyHealthy

Every year, one of our big Christmas traditions has always been hanging our stockings. Topher and I did it when it was just us. Then the unnamed child came along, and I made one for her also.

As you all know our fur babies are part of the family, so of course, they have stockings that Santa fills every year as well.

Since we have three pups, filling everyone’s stockings can get a bit pricey, so we have found that getting our treats and goodies in large quantities at Sam’s Club, and dividing them up, is the cheapest way to go. [Check it out…]


Pinterest Party Friday #82

Happy Friday everyone!!! This week has been a little crazy, I’ve been running around all week getting errands done, but as far as projects go … not so hot. Today I am working on some mantels for a client and am working on my totally dismantled laundry room. This weekend, the unnamed child has an […]

Throwback Thursday Edition #2 (and the Green Chalkpainted Dresser)

Welcome to the second edition of Throwback Thursday! I am traveling back through time and featuring some of my favorite projects from the past. It is fun to see how my painting techniques have changed, how my photography has improved (thank goodness!), and what was happening in my family’s lives at the time. If you […]


Planked Christmas Deer Sign

For the last few weeks, everywhere I have gone it has been Christmas. The grocery store, the mall, Home Depot, and the craft stores have had it up for months. Has any of this bothered me? Nope. I love everything about Christmas (except this extremely sucky cold weather). Usually we put up our tree the […]

Pinterest Party Friday #81

Happy Friday everyone!!! I think I’m finally over this yucky virus! It kind of knocked me on my butt, and now I’m super behind on everything. I’m determined to get all of the Christmas decor up this weekend, and I need to get started on a couple of other big projects — like gutting my […]


Throwback Thursday #1 (Retro Ivory Dresser)

I’m starting a little something new here on Thursdays. In this past year I have been very blessed with such a large number of new readers. Many of my beginning projects have never been seen by most of my new followers, and I thought it would be fun to go back and check some of […]


Pottery Barn Advent Calendar Knock Off

Happy Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend! I have The Plague. The throat swelling shut, head feels like it’s going to blow up, body aches that make you want to die … The Plague. I started feeling it Friday and Saturday, but it was tolerable. I had my Holiday Open House […]


Why We Love Just Dance 2015

  Does your family have any of the Just Dance editions? Ours has every one of them! We originally bought them years ago for my daughter to have when her friends came over. I figured it would be one of those things that she would play with for a few weeks and then be over […]


Pinterest Party Friday #80

Happy Friday everyone!!! This week has been a bit hectic. Yesterday was the unnamed child’s 17th birthday, and being the procrastinator that I am, I waited until the last couple of days to frantically run around and get gifts. You would have been proud, though, I made her a big turkey dinner — and me […]

October Review

October was a busy month at my house!  We went away for a few days to Kansas City where I did some vintage shopping, went to the aquarium, the farmers market, and ate at some fun new restaurants … and we got to visit one of my sweet bloggy friends. The unnamed child got a […]
