I am a shit housekeeper. My culinary background is in microwave dinners and take-out. I didn't think anything of it until it came time to move in with my now husband. We moved into a lovely house (check), I bought some lovely lipstick (check), I found a strand of pearls at a garage sale (check). So why the hell is the laundry always in a pile, the dishes never done, the floor all dirty and most of the things I cook are gross, mushy approximations of food?
Can you spell "ice cream" B-A-N-A-N-A-S!? In this Pinterest Challenge, I took on the banana "ice cream" recipe and I nailed it! Here's how you can pull this off too.
I went to the home improvement store and found semi-transparent adhesive window films, but they cost $20 per window! With three windows to cover, I knew I’d need to find a cheaper option. In fact, I found a way to do it with just stuff I already had so the whole project was FREE! Here’s how to put it up AND take it down.
Sometimes I go virtually traveling the world, via Airbnb. This is part me getting future vacation ideas and part lusting after amazing properties around the world. And every now and then something like this upside down boat-turned vacation rental pops into my browser, and I think: I MUST SHOW MY HOMIES!
I have a giant basil plant in my yard that grows rampant and demands I eat it at every meal. This means that the caprese combination of mozzarella/basil/tomato/balsamic is a staple. Little did I know that mozzarella is one of the easiest cheeses to make yourself and only takes about 20 minutes.
When my husband and I get home from our day jobs, we don't waste much time before jumping into our second jobs of operating an at-home business. Now that our careers take place both in and out of the home, the line between work and personal time has started to blur. Our house now doubles as a work place, and I often find that I can't truly relax when I'm there because I feel guilty when I'm not working on business operations.
What steps can I take to separate personal time from work time when at home?
