Let’s talk about our family File Organization System. Getting organized can be tough especially while juggling a very busy life. Sometimes papers can pile up in a basket or the corner of our desk and if one of us doesn’t put a stop to it right then and there, it can go on forever. We have a mail basket conveniently located in the kitchen. It’s basically a white washed wood pallet chalkboard sign with a chicken wire nest in the front. We put all our letters in there when we first get home. Slowly, all our papers migrate to the home office and collect themselves around the printer. Again, this could have gone on for days if we let it. Read More
Today’s the perfect day to share our new and improved family gallery wall. Since my wife and I are enjoying a week chalk full of family events, I found it fitting to talk about how we created the perfect wall of family memories upon entering our humble abode. So, I am probably somewhere in Mexico right now chilling with the family and spending great quality time.
My father-in-law really outdid himself last year on Thanksgiving, which was also my mother-in-law’s birthday. We had gone up to the mountains—we being my brother and sister-in-law (Kalex & Lynn) with my niece and nephew (Kaylin & Gordo), my mother and father-in-law (Mayra & Freddy)—to spend Thanksgiving AND her 50th birthday in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area.

Are you looking to paint your wooden fence? Don’t know what you are even doing? You’ve come to the right place.
This post is a Q&A based on a project that our cousin Cathy and Titi Lisa completed.

Once you see the before and after pictures, you will see what a great job they did on painting their wooden fence. Now let’s get to it! Read More
In almost every Irish kitchen, you will find the family staple is a nice serving of freshly roasted potatoes. I would say that, based on my research, Sundays are the best days for these Teeny Tiny Roasted Potatoes. This is a quick and easy treat that serves as a beautiful side dish to just about any meal you have planned for Sunday brunch or dinner. It’s no surprise that potatoes are an Irish favorite, being that they are known to have found and cultivated the first of all known potatoes back in the 16th century. And, there is nothing like a pan of roasted potatoes cooking in grass-fed Irish butter, my personal favorite. You can find Irish butter in my fridge on almost any given day. Read More
