Bacon and Cheese Omelet {Kid Friendly Breakfast Idea}

Bacon and Cheese Omelet {Kid Friendly Breakfast Idea}

I'm constantly looking for things my kids will eat and ways to make my life easier. This simple recipe helps we with both! Lots of protein, great flavor, and did I mention these are really easy to make?

Easy and healthy breakfast. Omelet muffins... genius!

All you need is:

One egg for each muffin to want to make (for our purposes let's say it's 6)

6 eggs
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese
2 slices cooked bacon

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prep your muffin tin with baking liners. Crack all the eggs into a mixing bowl, add milk and beat with a whisk until smooth. Pour egg mixture into individual baking cups. Sprinkle cheese and bacon on top of the egg mixture. Carefully, using a fork, mix in bacon and cheese slightly. Bake for 15 minutes or until you can poke them with a toothpick and it comes out clean.

I just know your kids are going to love these as much as mine do!

Creative Bathroom Counter Organizing Idea

Creative Bathroom Counter Organizing Idea

I'll admit it, I am a messy-bathroom type of girl. I try not to be, I really do but I struggle. My master bathroom is so pretty and I want to keep it organized. But I really love to have all my stuff out on the counter. It just makes my life easier, ya know? 

THIS POST IS PART OF MY ORGANIZE PRETTY SERIES

LOVE this bathroom organizing idea. It's actually a plant rack!

So there I was, checking out the latest Target home promotional mail when I came across this little number. I said to myself, "Self, that's what you need... two tiers. You could totally fit all your crap on two tiers." I agreed with myself and then I bought it. You can buy it too if you want.


This is how it looks on my bathroom counter. I have a lot of crap. Believe it or not, there is a lot more  where that came from, in the drawers and under the sink :)


LOVE this bathroom organizing idea. It's actually a plant rack!

Lots of little stuff calls for a little organization. I also found this clear organizer in the organizing section of Target. It fits in there just perfectly.


LOVE this bathroom organizing idea. It's actually a plant rack!

Now I get to keep all my junk and my husband's too, right there on the counter... that didn't sound right. Anyways, I dig it. 


LOVE this bathroom organizing idea. It's actually a plant rack!

P.S. I wish I were awesome enough to have a real succulent on my bathroom counter... that bad boy is counterfeit (punny). I am just not that high maintenance, um, when it comes to plants that is. Yeah, you guessed it, found it at Target. Would you believe me if I told you that this isn't an ad for Target?

LOVE this bathroom organizing idea. It's actually a plant rack!

Happy organizing! Here is some more organizing goodness for your viewing pleasure...

Why You Need and Rug Pad... & What Kind to Get

Why You Need and Rug Pad... & What Kind to Get

I had a problem. While this problem might have not been earth-shattering per se, it was a problem nonetheless. You see, I suffered from a common condition called Schrunchyrugitis (at least that's the name name I just came up with). Before you throw up your hands and declare me a genius, let's talk... about rugs. I love rugs. I believe in rugs. When I got beautiful new carpet recently my mom told me NOT to put my rug over it. "Mom, rugs aren't for covering up ugly carpet, rugs are for bringing a room together, defining space, adding texture and color..."

Great info! I didn't know about all the different types of rug pads and what they are good for. MUST PIN!

I love this rug. It's huge. I love the color the pattern and even the fact that's it's flat woven. But I had a problem. I wish I would have taken before photos! I was constantly having to lift up my couch to straighten out the rug. I don't think I'm being overly dramatic when I tell you that it was KILLING me. 


Great info! I didn't know about all the different types of rug pads and what they are good for. MUST PIN!

So when my friends over at Rug Pad Corner (see photo above, pun intended) offered to send me a rug pad to ease my troubled mind, I didn't think twice about taking them up on it.

P.S. Rug Pad Corner would like to offer all you lovelies 15% off, use code REVIEW15 at checkout.

Great info! I didn't know about all the different types of rug pads and what they are good for. MUST PIN!

I also do not think I am being overly dramatic when I tell you that it has changed my life!

But what type of rug pad is right for you?


Great info! I didn't know about all the different types of rug pads and what they are good for. MUST PIN!

Part of the reason I never owned a rug pad before what that I didn't know which kind to get. That's what I loved so much about Rug Pad Corner, they make it easy to know what kind of pad I needed. I quickly figured out that the NO-MUV rug pad was right for me. If you have an unusual shaped rug, they do custom cuts too.

Check out their Rug Pad Buying Guide. It makes it ridiculously easy to figure out your best option!

Great info! I didn't know about all the different types of rug pads and what they are good for. MUST PIN!


Great info! I didn't know about all the different types of rug pads and what they are good for. MUST PIN!

No more bunching and shifting. No more testing my strength by lifting my couch corners on a semi-daily basis. No more being seriously annoyed with my beloved rug.

Great info! I didn't know about all the different types of rug pads and what they are good for. MUST PIN!

While my flat-woven rug doesn't lay perfectly flat due to a couple years on not owning a rug pad (what was I thinking?) all's well that ends well, right?

Great info! I didn't know about all the different types of rug pads and what they are good for. MUST PIN!

I hope this info helps you out. #lifechanging

Fabric Covered Magnetic Picture Display {Decorating with Pictures Series}

Fabric Covered Magnetic Picture Display {Decorating with Pictures Series}

I am so excited to participate is my darling friend Kristen Duke's Decorating with Pictures Series. I love how passionate she is about displaying family photos in her home. I stayed a weekend in her home a few months ago... and it is such a happy place! I think a lot of that can be contributed to all the many images of her happy family and kids hanging on the walls. I read a study once that said that children feel more loved when they see photographs of themselves displayed in the home. I love displaying photos of my family but it's hard to actually get them off the computer and into a frame. All that time and effort trying to create the perfect gallery wall... well, it may not be for you. This project is seriously ANYONE can do. It's so simple it's almost funny.

PS Check out my post from last year: Kid-Friendly Gallery Wall

DIY Fabric Covered Magnet Board for displaying family photos! Kids love seeing pictures of themselves.

I created a fabric-covered magnet board that is pretty enough to hang in my main living area. Get the full tutorial here... I made this the same way I made my DIY Magnetic Jewelry Board.

I used those handy 3M velcro hanging strips to easily secure my magnet board to the wall.

I dug out some oldies but goodies and hung them with some of my favorite current photos as well.

I used regular magnets from the hardware store but I actually painted some of them silver or added little flourishes that I just happened to have laying around.

I like how it adds a little more color and personality to the living space.

I also love that I can "seasonalize" it. It's a great place to display my Christmas cards. I'm also thinking that I will display photos from past holidays as that particular holiday approaches.

My kids love it because they get to help choose the photos and even help arrange them. I mean, there is no way I would let this little one help me hang a gallery wall, but with this project she gets to participate and feel a part of it. She thinks it's pretty special.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope this project inspired you to bring more family photos into your home!

Master Bathroom Ideas

Master Bathroom Ideas

I believe that your master bathroom should be a luxurious retreat. A place to relax, be pampered and unwind. It should be utterly pretty. But how? Great question! I have loved creating a beautiful space in my own master bathroom and I want you to have the same experience.

I have collected the best master bathroom ideas I could find... just for you!

Simple ideas for creating a gorgeous master bathroom. Click to see!

There are a few things you can do to make your master bathroom truly special. One of them is LIGHTING!

LIGHTING: Simply adding gorgeous light fixtures to your master bath is going to take an ordinary room and kick it up a notch (or ever two). This is actually true of any room. Lighting does amazing things for a space.

These sconces are just the most adorable things I have ever seen! I wish I had room for some in my bathroom. Don't even get me started on the beautiful exposed piping under the vanity!

This bathroom is obviously beyond gorgeous. The flooring is absolutely killing me! But check out the lighting. It's so simple but makes such a statement and does a great job of drawing the eye up and filling the space.

Here are some awesome lighting ideas (click on the image to shop)
P.S. Don't forget the magic of candle light....

DETAILS: OK, let's talk about details. Keep it simple. Choose a theme and stick with it. Bathrooms get cluttered enough... you don't need to go overboard on the decor. I love soothing neutral colors (gray is my favorite) and pretty linens and some interesting details to complete the look.

This is my very own master bathroom. I painted it light gray and stenciled the walls with a silver glaze. This was one of my very first blog posts so the photos are old school... but I am still loving my pretty master bathroom.

I love how they carried the theme of mercury glass throughout this vanity. The pattern in the glass echo the patter in the hand towel and the rug... so pretty and subtle.

FLOORING: Now, this is obviously more work than just switching out some accessories or hanging a light but there are just so many gorgeous bathroom floor options out there these days that I had to mention a couple.

I a totally digging all the shapes and textures of tile that I am seeing around. It kinda makes me want to rip out all my semi-lame bathroom tile and start all over with something amazing... kinda. My favorite options right now are the wood-look tile (above) and herringbone tile (below).

Let's just appreciate how ridiculously amazing this bathroom is for a moment, shall we?

Ok, now back to real life.
STORAGE: Since we do live in the real world (dang it) let's talk about more practical things... like storage. I know, bummer.

Graham Cracker Pie Crust Recipe {with Coconut Oil}

Graham Cracker Pie Crust Recipe {with Coconut Oil}

Let's face it... pie is delicious. But it's not super healthy (obviously). I like to make my food as healthy as I can, even if it is pie. I mean, a girl's gotta eat some pie sometimes, right? I created this little recipe (it's so easy) and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. My favorite pie in the whole world is Pomegranate Pie. I always use this crust when I make it. Beware though, even though this is a healthier version, it is by no means low calorie. Ya can't win 'em all.

Healthier Gotta try this Graham Cracker Crust Recipe. Made with Coconut oil and sweetened with Stevia.

For one pie crust, you will need:

about 12 Graham Crackers
2 tbs of Coconut Oil melted (just stick it in the microwave)
Stevia (sweeten to taste)

How easy is that?


Healthier Gotta try this Graham Cracker Crust Recipe. Made with Coconut oil and sweetened with Stevia.

Blend all ingredients in a blender or food processor. I have one of those big fancy blenders and it blends it super fine and it's awesome.

Then place the dough in a pie pan and spread it with a rubber spatula (or your hands). This is what it looks like before you bake it.

Finally, bake it in the oven at 350 degrees for 12-15 minutes. You are going to love how amazing it smells. Then just add your favorite pie filling!

Twenty Affordable Rugs for your Home

Twenty Affordable Rugs for your Home

Rugs are very important to me. I recently got new carpet. My mom was over helping put the furniture back. She didn't want me to put my beloved rug back over my carpet. I indulged her and didn't lay the rug back down. I stepped back and took a look. I was not in love! She didn't want me to cover up the nice new carpet. I explained that rugs aren't for covering up carpet stains, they are for creating a space, drawing the eye, adding color and texture. Rugs are pretty and they can also cost a pretty penny. That's why I created this little list of over 20 affordable rugs to beautify your home.

A great list of super cute and affordable rugs. Must pin!

I will try to keep this list updated. Just click on a rug to view the sizes and prices.
