Jump, jump! Trampoline built into the ground!

First of all, I would like to apologize to my followers for the lack of posts these past few days. You know how things get: busy. This weekend I got a dog… temporarily. I am watching my brother’s dog because he has a newborn in the house and can’t take care of his other kids plus the new puppy. So now I’m currently trying to devise a plan to take the puppy forever………..but I digress. This is unrelated…

Back to, you guessed it, Pinterest. 🙂

So I don’t know where I’ve been these past several years, but apparently they have made trampolines that are built in the ground. I know. This is a complete shock to me too. Does anyone have one of these things? Or can explain to me further? They seem a bit pricy though. Is it safer than a regular above ground trampoline?


Will someone please update me to this century and explain to me one of these things. Are they even fun? The curiosity is killin’ me here!


Puppy face

Ok. I’m sorry but I had to do it. I’m a dog lover and  I think that no home is complete without a dog. I’m very sad because I recently had to give my dog up for adoption. He was a German Shepherd and is too big to take with me to a new apartment. I’m really sad because no home should be dog-less, but right now mine is! Today instead of using Pinterest, I used Google. I typed dog into the search and look what came up!

You would be CRAZY if you didn’t want to come home to that face everyday! So precious! What kind of dogs do you have? How does your home feel to have a dog in it? Or better yet… post a picture of your dog! I would love to see!

Where did they go?

Here is a list of things that are hard/annoying to store:

  1. Toaster
  2. Blender
  3. Washing machine and drier
  4. Detergent
  5. Coffee pot

And this list could go on forever. These are not exactly the prettiest items we have in our home, and in my opinion are better not to be seen unless in use. Seeing everyone’s kitchen appliances out on the kitchen counter isn’t always the classiest look. We all know it’s there so why do we have to see it? Anyways, look at what I just found!!




I suggest you check out this website for some images of even more ways to hide those pesky appliances.

Do you have any ideas of creative way to store appliances? Please let me know of some your ways to create extra storage! 🙂



Backyard fantasy

I’m starting to have a problem with Pinterest. My dream home is becoming bigger and bigger but my budget isn’t moving. Today I typed the word ‘pool’ into the search bar because it’s been so hot out recently….BIG MISTAKE. The pools that came up in the search results were beautiful and magnificent looking. But most importantly, totally unattainable.

How beautiful is this? Can this really be someone’s backyard?? I don’t even want to imagine that someone gets to see this everyday. It’s just not fair. Anyone have any ideas of pools that are within a much smaller budget?I would love to hear some tips and suggestions!

Swing on over

I’m a do-er. What’s a do-er you ask? Well a do-er is someone that doesn’t sit on the sidelines and let other people play the game. A do-er does! Get it? Being a do-er, I do not relax enough! Maybe because it’s that I haven’t scheduled time in my planner to relax. Whatever the reason is, I would love to be able to relax more! Sometimes we lose ourselves with our busy schedules that we forget — and it’s so important!

I think that maybe if I had a porch swing (or just a porch in general) that having a space would help me create a relaxed environment. ANd hopefully motivation to relax too.

If this doesn’t say relaxing then I’m not exactly sure what does. A girl can dream right? Do you have a porch swing? I would love to see your pictures! What’s your favorite thing to do on your porch swing? Drink coffee? Read? I would love to hear from you!
