I love the quote in the picture above and figured it would be appropriate to share since I’m posting about my gardening adventures. To all the gardeners out there, feel inspired 🙂 Spring is FINALLY starting to come around here in good old Minnesota. Last week we were sitting at a balmy 8 degrees, today […]
I haven’t made any crafts lately or done any DIY projects. Naturally, it was time for me to venture into the time-consuming land known as Pinterest once again. I love canvas wall art, so I decided to do this super easy project. I took a shortcut by buying a full wooden word instead of separate […]
The whole reason I started this blog was to capture the little and simple things in life that bring so much joy to me. And so often, those are the things we take for granted. Food just happens to be one of those things. What a blessing that we can actually grow our own food. […]
It’s winter in Minnesota. As I write this post, it’s a whopping 1 degree outside. When I look outside, I see most of the ground covered in white. And a few small patches of brown, lifeless grass, where the snow melted just a few days ago when we enjoyed a balmy 40 degrees. Why not […]
I love quotes. I have one board on Pinterest dedicated to some of my favorite quotes. I was going through that board tonight to find some inspiration for blogging and this quote is the one that stuck out to me the most. Being in my 20s, I often find myself surrounded by peers who are […]

The first big snowfall of the year is here! While everyone else may be super grumpy and ornery about it, I am excited. And have already enjoyed a nice walk in it. I say let it snow!
Hi, my name is Brittany and I’m a Bargain Shopper. It’s rare that I ever buy anything at full price and if I do, it’s because I’m already buying it from somewhere cheap or it’s just cheap in general. I am also a large proponent of shopping at the Goodwill. I can’t even begin to […]
I’ve been seeing these Instagram photostrips floating around Pinterest. I thought they looked super cool, but I don’t have the luxury of Photoshop to make them. I probably won’t be bringing them into Kinkos or cutting them super precise either. But I did some searching around Google for similar projects and discovered that I could just […]
Everybody has a favorite ornament on their Christmas tree, right? I know I have several, so I just figured I’d share a few of my favorites now that our Christmas tree is up. I’m also a big fan of the LED lights!
