Simplify Your Wedding Planning with Zola

Planning a wedding is one of the MOST STRESSFUL things a couple will ever do together.  Well, let’s be honest, MOST of the work falls on the BRIDE. Picking the venue, the dress, the cake, the invitations and dealing with the stress of who to invite and who to skip.  It could make Mother Teresa […] Read more…

Kitchen reveal - our brand new painted oak cabinets. It's gorgeous and was easier than you'd think.

Kitchen Reveal – Painted Oak Cabinets

Sooooo, we’ve been mucking around all summer with a kitchen remodel.  We’ve been poking around for like a year looking at painted oak cabinets, but it’s a big change, and an expensive one.  But we’ve had these old 70’s style golden oak cabinets in our kitchen for a decade and they weren’t very nice. This […] Read more…

Our visit to SeaQuest Utah along with giveaway and discount code

Giveaway and Discount Code for SeaQuest Aquarium Utah

Recently, I decided to give my family a little pre-Easter treat by taking them for a visit to SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium in Layton, Utah.  We spent the whole day there and we had SO MUCH FUN!   Disclaimer:  I was compensated by SeaQuest Utah with free admission for myself and my family.  However, you know […] Read more…

Sick people are "supposed" to look sick, right? What if they don't?

Guest Post – A Different View of Chronic Illness

Today’s Guest Poster is Lauren from My Illness Start to Finish.  She writes about her life with chronic illness.   Chronic illness can take many forms, some are visible and some aren’t.  My boss’s wife is struggling with Stage 4 breast cancer.  It is of course, highly visible, and you can bet that no one […] Read more…

Camping can be really fun. These are some ideas to add some extra fun to your campouts.

Ways to SPICE Up Your Campouts

Welcome friends – thanks for stopping by!  Today we are going to talk about campouts. One of the fun things I get to do is write pieces for some of the BSA’s social media outlets. Last year, I wrote about our Scout Troop’s famous “Iron Chef” campout.  This is a long-standing tradition in our Scout […] Read more…

Our first trip to Yellowstone was fantastic. We had a great guide to show us all the great places to see.

Our First-time Trip to Yellowstone

Last week, my husband and I had a fun vacation.  Bizarrely enough, neither one of us had ever been to Yellowstone before, or even to any National Park.  We are such indoor people it seems kind of pointless to live in Utah surrounded by some of the best scenery in the country.  It’s like we’re […] Read more…

A softer way to end toxic friendships - bless and release. I'm still going to love you, but I'm going to do it from waaay over here...

How to Break up with your Toxic Friends

Thanks for stopping by today.  Today we are going to talk about a subject that is very familiar to anyone, especially women – toxic friendships.  Friendships that have gone sour for some reason or just people who are mean, overly needy, or just plain annoying.  I think we have all been in exactly that place […] Read more…

A humorous look at the difference in packing for a trip between men and women.

Packing for a Trip – Women vs. Men

  I’m smack in the middle of packing for two different trips – I’m unpacking from a business trip last week to California at the same time that I am packing for a blog conference coming up in just 3 days.  Yes, this is when Adrian’s Crazy Life gets far too crazy, so I thought […] Read more…

A Little Help for Your New Year's Resolutions

Happy New Year’s 2016

If there is anything I struggle with in my life, it’s dealing with my various habits.  I struggle with both breaking bad habits and creating good ones.  I have even done some research trying to find a magical solution. It seems to be a pretty widespread issue.  I read somewhere that something like 90% of […] Read more…

My Son's Eagle Project was featured as the Day Four - A Scout is Friendly for the 12 Days of Scouting Christmas.

The Twelve Days of Scouting Christmas

OK, this is just a quick one today.  I am up to my ears in Christmas “busyness” to the point where I can’t even sleep for thinking of all the gifts I need to wrap (and still buy!) and cards I need to send.  But I did want to slip this one in.  I know […] Read more…

Becky Porter's fabulous Christmas Tree braid.

Utah Blogger Holiday Round Up

If you’ve been around here for a while, you might have noticed that I am about the least crafty, least cook-y female on the planet.  Actually, I used to be pretty crafty, but that was prior to discovering the Interwebs.  These days, digital scrapbooking is about as crafty as I’m likely to get.  And I […] Read more…

Saying goodbye to our dog Joe

Goodbye to our Dog Joe

I’ve written about our Saint Bernard Joe before – his “almost” brush with fame when he was auditioned for a movie.  Well sadly, we lost him last week.  It’s always sad to lose a pet – a dog or a cat has such a short lifespan compared with ours, and yet they become such an […] Read more…
