Renovation Revelations: Things To Be Aware of When Restoring a Property


Looking to achieve your dream home? Buying a cheap, run down property which has potential and then doing it up yourself is a good way to go about it. You can transform it into anything you want, and have a say over everything from the layout to the finishes. It’s far cheaper than buying a house that’s ‘move in ready’ so you’ll get more for your money. Or perhaps you’re looking to get in property, ‘flipping houses’ can be very lucrative, and done well can seriously line your pockets. However, renovating isn’t without its risks. Not only do you need to have patience and creative vision when working on transforming a home, but properties (especially older ones can) contain all kinds of hidden secrets. These issues than can put a dent in your budget or even cause you to lose money overall. Here are some of the common issues to watch out for when you’re renovating a property.

Extend the Life of Your Batteries with Batteroo #review



Do you feel like there is always something that needs new batteries?  I sure do.  I am so excited to learn about Batteroo and try them out in my house.  This could be a game changer for us! Batteroo is a battery booster.  Batteroo is a reusable sleeve for your disposable batteries.  It will extend the life of your battery.  It seems like the battery in the Xbox controls dies every other week, so I am super excited to see how long they last with the Batteroo sleeve on them.  I am also using Batteroo on all of our TV remotes.  I received a package of AA and AAA Batteroos.  They have been on my disposable batteries for a little over a week, so I will update you on the success of them.  However, I did read some other reviews on them and I hope I have the same success that I read about.

Wordless Wednesday- 15 Years Later


Today, Matt and I are celebrating our 15th wedding anniversary! I cannot believe it has already been 15 years and I don't know where I'd be without him. He is my best friend and sometimes the biggest pain in the rear and I'm sure he'd tell you the same about me.

Gooey Crock Pot Chicken & Noodles #Recipe


Last week, I was desperate for a quick meal that I could make in my trusty crock pot. I rely on the crock pot at least once a week for a meal that I really don't have to think about, and that I can leave cooking at home when we're going to be home late. I didn't have time to go grocery shopping for additional ingredients and needed to use what I had in the pantry and fridge. I grabbed some chicken, and a few other simple food staples, and concocted a deliciously creamy, cheesy chicken and noodle dish that the whole family loved!
