I was searching for a good lemon cookie and came across this one at Jamie Cooks It Up; I was not disappointed. This recipe is so easy because you begin with a cake mix! Add in a few fresh ingredients and these little treasures are hard to stay out of. Moist, soft, wonderful, a little tart with a bit of sweet — simply fabulous.
The theme for this grilling season in the McCollum house is: Summer of the kabobs! And this is for a few simple reasons: Healthy. Easy. Quick. Variety. Yummy & fun to eat for all ages! Our favorite Chinese food is sesame chicken, so here is a grilled & healthier version.

I make sure I always remove my makeup before washing my face. Even if you are way too tired to wash your face with a cleanser at least try to use a makeup wipe to remove oil, dirt, and makeup before you sleep, if you don’t wear makeup you should still do this. I can’t tell you how many makeup remover wipes I’ve been through. I try a new brand basically every time I run out so the brand isn’t the focus here, they just need to work.
Here, in our South Carolina hometown, the kids still have a few more days in school. But we’re all itching for summer vacation and can’t wait for a couple of months of summer fun! At home, I’m readying our calendar for plenty of family fun activities, beginning with a few ideas for Kid-Friendly Summer treats. That’s why today at Written Reality, we’re gathering a great BIG list of Cool Summer Treats. Check out some of these fabulous finds to add to your own bucket list of Summer Fun!
I’ve been making homemade cakes every year for each kid’s birthday – and it’s one of my favorite parts of celebrating. Coming up with a unique birthday cake idea, planning the execution of all the little details and putting the plan into action – and of course, seeing the final results. I love to watch the reactions of my kiddos and to see their excitement at their special cake.

I recently booked a moving company for our move and was reading their damage coverage policy where it said they won’t cover any damage to “pressed wood furniture (i.e. Ikea furniture)” because it isn’t meant to be moved. And I laughed because well, that’s basically all we own! I have learned a lot of about how to live with and love Ikea and other assemble-it-yourself furniture which might perhaps be a separate post but my #1 tip? Avoid veneer and only buy the solid wood pieces! But my favorite thing about build-it-yourself furniture is all the potential to customize it! Of course, my most popular Ikea hack is O’s play kitchen but we also made a whole curving wall of built-ins out of the ever popular Billy bookcase and that’s not even all that creative. So today I’m bringing you some of the coolest and most creative Ikea hacks I can find. As always, please click through and pin from the source!
