Jodie and I are really loving our summer of sisterhood. Being together makes all the difference. Everything we do is more fun when we are working side by side instead of via speaker phone. This week we published my Farmhouse Budget-Friendly Bedroom Makeover. In this post I share tips for staying on-budget, discuss the pros and cons of mixing vs. matching decor and how to decide what’s best for your space. I also share some great resources. You won’t want to miss this post if you love getting real value for your dollar when purchasing furniture and home decor.

What else were we up to? Well, we are working hard on the curriculum we will be presenting at The Gathering: Our Instagram Workshop and Retreat in Waco, TX Oct 14-17th. While we were brainstorming the event we had a brilliant idea. We decided to give away ONE FULL TICKET to our event (and there are only 48 tickets). If you have not yet entered now is your chance. You can enter the giveaway through Saturday June 16th 8:30pm pst. If you are reading this and the giveaway has closed you can still learn all the details to be a part of our exciting event. We can’t wait to meet you.


Welcome to another week of Friday Friends Parade. Every week we love this more. Why? Because we absolutely love seeing your posts and also the chance to SHOWCASE your talents.

This is our weekly link up party hosted by Julie & Jodie and our two besties, Janine Happy Happy Nester and Ashley Modern Glam Home. It’s a fun opportunity to shareCrafts, Decor, DIY and Recipes.

Join us each week Friday am – Wednesday pm to explore new talent and if you’re a blogger, share your own favorite projects by linking up at the bottom.  Each week we feature our favorites from last week’s parade. Be sure to check out Last Week’s Friday Friends Parade Linky Party for wonderful decor, garden, craft & recipe inspiration.

Friday Friends Parade  is a forum for encouragement and sharing. It’s a place to be inspired, meet new friends, and show off your projects and posts. We are so excited to see what you’ve got for us this week. ENJOY!

If you are looking for something a little stronger, this week I shared my recipe for Watermelon Frozen Rosé AKA Frosé. This was so much fun to create and I love the addition of the watermelon to this summer cocktail.

Domestically Creative has this delicious looking Key Lime Pie Ice Cream recipe. Doesn’t it look like the perfect treat on a warm summer evening? I seriously can’t wait to try making Amanda’s awesome recipe.

This month over on my blog it is all about sweet citrus desserts. I just created a collection of 9 various desserts that I’m sure you’ll enjoy perusing. Make sure to check out these scrumptious desserts.
