My Favorite Products: With Amazon

               Hi Everyone! Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend. I wanted to check in to share some exciting news with you and my partnership with Amazon. From day-to-day products, fashion, kitchen items, books, beauty, and so much more I am now able to share with you "my favorite Amazon picks." These are favorite items of mine that t I have ordered on Amazon if you ever have any interest in purchasing the items that I use on a daily basis this is a direct link below to do so.

              My goal with this program is to simply share my favorite items that I have purchased with Amazon. I have shared several of these items on my blog and social media accounts in the past and wanted to share more information about those products and how you can find them. If you are ever interested in any specific product; my new direct Amazon link will give you a one stop shop of my "Amazon Picks."

             I hope to share and inspire and enjoy fun products along the way :) I enjoy this little corner of the internet in a way to share with others what inspires me and makes me happy on a weekly basis. When you come to my blog or social media I hope and pray I am able to share family times, travel memories, fun products, inspiring home decor, safe beauty products, and yummy recipes for you to share with your loved ones. Thank you for being apart of my blog and reading! If you ever have any questions or requests on what you would like to see more of, I would love to hear from you. Thank you so much! xo


Here are just a few of "My Amazon Favorites" I will add new products along the way and be able to showcase them in this direct link above. Any item that I have in my home or that I use I will share with you and you will be able to see what my favorites are if you are ever interested

Hosting a Taco Bar


               Hi Everyone! Happy Wednesday! I hope you are all having a great week :) I wanted to stop in to share the taco bar I hosted last weekend and give you ideas if you ever want to do this in your own home or for a party. This was such a fun night celebrating Reed's Birthday with his parents and grandmother. We enjoyed the taco bar and thought it would be fun to share. Taco bar's can be extensive or very simple; either way they are always bound to be a hit!

              I had a simple table setting with polka dot placements with white napkins and a colorful centerpiece of flowers in different colors. This is a great way to add a pop of color to any table. Then, I made one large appetizer dip which consisted of refried beans as the bottom layer, the middle layer I mixed 1/2 cup of mayo, 1 cup of sour cream, and one pack of taco seasoning for the second layer, and then I added shredded cheese,  green onions,  and tomatoes on top. You can serve this appetizer with frito chips or tortilla chips. My grandma or as we all know her as "Mam" makes this and everyone always enjoys it. It is a very simple but great recipe for any party. 

            After the appetizer, I set out several small bowls of toppings, sauces, and condiments for the tacos. This is your chance to get creative with toppings and also your choice of colors of bowls or your serving pieces. The main dish was taco meat & pork carnitas and then everyone could choose a soft or hard shell for their taco and then add whatever they wanted on top of their tacos. This is a fun way to entertain and easy as well! For a couple sides for this dish I put guacamole, cheese dip, salsa with chips and also a side of rice. As you can see, you can make it as large as you want. My taco bar was a hit I think as everyone enjoyed good conversation, company, food, and celebrating Reed. 

            For dessert, I purchased a Nothing Bundt Cake which was Reed's favorite (Red Velvet). We had a great time! I hope you all enjoyed this post and look forward to sharing more parties or events I host in the future. Thank you for stopping by :) xo Have a great week!

A fun Easter Weekend

Reed and I spent several days with my parents, brother, and our family friends The Olson's who came in from Indiana for their spring break. We all had a fun time here in Nashville together. Then, for Easter we spent the day with the Draffin family here in TN. It was a fun weekend celebrating and enjoying time with one another. Here are a few fun pics from our weekend. I hope you all had a great Easter as well. I have a few things to share this week so stay tuned for more fun posts coming soon.
