Turn your Instagram Feed into Home Decor with #Cube



I am not going to lie to you all--I care about everyone here who is reading this, so I am going to keep it real honest: I have an OBSESSION with Instagram. Seriously. It's the first social media platform I check in the morning after I wake up. Why? Because it's fun to scroll mindlessly though my feed as I sip my first cup of coffee and there are no political rants or controversial topics that would kill my vibe.

If you are anything like my and having joined the #IGers bandwagon,
 you are going to want to keep reading!

Jalapeño Mac n Cheese

Happy Friday!

Today, we're sharing our favorite spin on macaroni and cheese: with a little bit of spicy!

Ever since Adam and I moved to Arizona, we take our food with a little bit more spice than we would in the past. For instance, when we make burgers, we add in sriracha; and when we order Thai food we like it "Thai hot." Same goes for our comfort foods, and that's why today I'm sharing one of my favorite macaroni and cheese recipes I've prepared since moving to Arizona!

Our Mini Linky Party | Week 3





Happy Saturday! I hope everyone had a fabulous week and is ready to enjoy the weekend. We've had a lot of Valentine's Day prep going on around the blog, and we've started collecting our festive Valentine's Day posts and starting building them along our sidebar. I just adore holidays (especially for blogging) since it gives me something to focus my efforts on so that there is a common theme going on with my blog. What do you all think? Are you similar in that way where you like your posts all having a theme?

Here are our features from this last week's party:

Blueberry Crostata by Ethnic Spoon


 Stacking Copper Braclets by Jewelry Making Journal


Veggie Tree for Christmas by A Labour of Life 


How to Make Perfect Marshmallow Fondant by Mama Smith's Blog
