High Five on Friday #5

Hey there friends! Happy Friday!! Our ‘little’ boys have been on spring break this week (like many of your kiddos), but they haven’t been home. They are on mission trips with our church! In fact, no one has been home except for the hubby and me, since neither college kid got this week off for spring break. We are getting a taste of what empty nesting is going to be like, and man is it weird and wonderful all wrapped into one.

Our Trip to Magnolia Market at The Silos

Hey there friends! Last weekend we were able to check another thing off our bucket list! A visit to Magnolia Market at The Silos in Waco! If you’re a Fixer Upper fan then you might be a tad jealous (unless you’ve already been yourself), if you’re not then you might not know what I’m talking about. A few years back we visited their tiny store on Bosque street, and it was sweet and quaint and crowded. This store is about ten times the size, still sweet, and still crowded. Ha!! They have sweet workers everywhere ready to help you with anything you need, including snapping cute pictures for you so you don’t have to struggle with taking a selfie. (the struggle is real for us old people 😉 )

Front Door Color Choices

Hi friends! Do you ever feel like you will never be done with your home? If you do, then you probably love decorating!! I know I am constantly  circling back and changing things up. I like to make changes that are fairly simple, not too pricey, and of course something I can DIY!! Today, I’m thinking about our front door. For several years it has looked like this. And I like it. But, I think I’m ready for something different.

Cheesy Chicken Enchiladas – A Family Favorite

Are you in a rut with dinner? Are you tired of eating the same things all the time? Ya, I’ve been there. Pinterest is my go to when I’m stuck. I find so many yummy things there! I have been trying to clean up some of our family favorites in an effort to be more healthy. (clean-up meaning replace bad-for-you ingredients with better-for-you ingredients) And, that is where this chicken enchilada recipe was born.

Shared Bathroom Inspiration and Mood Board

About a month ago we discovered that our shower fixture was leaking in the kids/guest bath. Like you can’t turn the water all the way off. This unfortunately is not the first time this has happened. We have band-aided the situation several times. This issue lies in the original plumbing which honestly needs to be redone. But for me, and probably most DIYers, that just means an if-you-give-a-mouse-a-cookie-experience. Not familiar with that reference?? You should look it up – great children’s books about cause and effect. 😆 Here’s part one of the update that was completed for the ORC last fall. Be sure to keep reading to see my plans for part two!
