Pound Cake & Peaches Sundae http://joyslife.com/pound-cake-peaches-sundae/ http://joyslife.com/pound-cake-peaches-sundae/#respond Wed, 02 Sep 2015 08:24:30 +0000 http://joyslife.com/?p=40886 This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Breyers for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Ice cream is a big part of dessert life in our house.  I mean, if we run out, it’s cause for a small panic.  Since we eat it often, I was glad to learn that Breyers now sources milk and cream from cows not treated [...]

How to Make a Vinyl Monogrammed Shower Caddy http://joyslife.com/vinyl-monogrammed-shower-caddy/ http://joyslife.com/vinyl-monogrammed-shower-caddy/#respond Thu, 27 Aug 2015 08:24:31 +0000 http://joyslife.com/?p=40908

I love to work with vinyl!  It’s a great way to personalize just about anything.  I’m using outdoor vinyl along with my Silhouette Cameo to create this vinyl monogrammed shower caddy for my daughter to use while she’s away at college.

First, I used a monogram file from the Silhouette store.  I cut it out using the standard settings for vinyl for the Cameo.  Next, weed the vinyl.  That means [...]

It’s pizza night!  It’s the one meal I never have to wonder if people like.  It’s a hit every time.  I like that it’s fast, easy and doesn’t require a ton of pre-planning.  Yay to that.  I have to plan enough things all day long.  Pizza night equals a much needed break, leaving time [...]

Vanilla Pound Cake & Keepin It Real http://joyslife.com/vanilla-pound-cake-keepin-it-real/ http://joyslife.com/vanilla-pound-cake-keepin-it-real/#respond Sat, 22 Aug 2015 23:10:16 +0000 http://joyslife.com/?p=40820

How gorgeous is that photo?  Other than adding the text to it, it’s completely untouched.  I love how pretty food can turn out just shot in natural light in my kitchen.  I should have changed lenses though, since the cut area is a bit blurry.  Whatever.  This is Saturday and I’m just kicking around the house.  I’m worried about my son who isn’t feeling well…he’s the one who had a spontaneous lung collapse in July.  (I [...]

Saving Money on Back to Campus Essentials http://joyslife.com/saving-money-on-back-to-campus-essentials/ http://joyslife.com/saving-money-on-back-to-campus-essentials/#respond Thu, 20 Aug 2015 14:11:44 +0000 http://joyslife.com/?p=40809

This year my daughter has a new college roommate.  For the past few years, she’s had the same great girl, who became her best friend, but she graduated last year.  Seriously, they were like sisters.  They shared their things, which is nice, but when it came to toiletries they spread their stuff from one end of the bathroom to the other.  There’s nothing really wrong with that, until you get a new roommate, because maybe they [...]

All opinions are 100% mine.

You know how sometimes you want to share a special treat or make a big deal out of something small?  I like to celebrate small everyday things.  For example, tonight I’m just glad that we get to sit around as a family and watch Sharknado 3.  It’s ridiculous [...]

My daughter headed back to college this week.  She’s only been gone a few days but I’ve already gotten messages from her that she can’t wait to be back home.  Poor thing.  Wait.  Poor me!  I miss her too!  She loves school and her roommate but being far from home is difficult, no matter [...]
