My New RYOBI Garage Door Opener

Hello all! I’ve got to tell you guys I am way too excited about my new garage door opener.

Fish Tacos – You Link It, We Make It Final Party

Hi and welcome back to You Link It, We Make It!   I am so sorry to announce that this will be our final party.  Kim and and I both had a hard time making this decision, but after attending Haven last weekend we both decided we want to focus more on home decor and improvement projects. We have so enjoyed this party, and the people we have connected with.  We hope to stay connected with each of you that have spent some time here with us.  Most of all, I’ll miss having a reason to chat with my friend Kim each week.  Maybe we’ll come up with another idea to collaborate soon :)! But for now, lets talk fish tacos!  Read More

This was a DIY office overhaul.  I had many firsts in here over the past few month, first concrete wall, first tile installation, first desk build…it was quite the learning experience. So, without further ado here is my home office reveal. Read More

Mushroom Tart - Uncookie Cutter

Mushroom Tart – You Link It, We Make It #25

Hi and welcome back to You Link It, We Make It! I was traveling this week, so while at my parents home my mom and I decided on this Mushroom Tart from Cooking with Carlee.  We couldn’t find the same kind of mushrooms Carlee used, but it was still great with the mixed mushroom mixture we ended up going with.  I can only imagine how good it was with the chanterelle mushrooms!
