Summer Dessert Recipes

When I think of summer desserts I often think of something that is light, airy, easy, and sometimes frozen. Who really wants a dessert that is heavy on your stomach when you are already uncomfortable in the summer heat. One top of that no one wants to turn their oven on 350 for very long when it is already 90 outside!

So here are some of my summer dessert recipe recommendations for you. Most of these came from Taste of Home 75 No-Bake Summer Desserts, so go check out that list!

Courtney’s House Update

Another month has gone by and I am starting to get back on track with everything. Sean has been back to work for two weeks now and even with everything starting to open back up it is still a little scary. Thankfully Sean’s work is taking guidelines seriously because they know some of the crew have vulnerable people at home. I am a little sad that we don’t get to spend as much time together but thing have to start to go back to normal again.

Bonding Time! Spring Garden Edition!

Hi everyone! I hope everyone is staying safe and sane at home and that you are doing well. I figured today we could celebrate Friday by just winding down and doing something fun. Gardening.

This year we built a raised herb bed for the patio and planted a few things in the topsy-turvys and let me tell you something… Gardening is so relaxing and if you have littles its a great life lesson and great bonding time everyday.

Current Lifestyle Faves

Today I wanted to share my current lifestyle faves. Just like with my Beauty Faves, I want to share a few lifestyle items that I am currently loving and using all the time. I haven’t done a Beauty Faves update since March so one of those will be coming soon.

So lets get into my Current Lifestyle Faves!

dr. brandt Microdermabrasion Age-Defying Exfoliator $79.00

My first item should actually be in the next Beauty Faves post but I wanted to post about it sooner.

RV Accessory Wish List

As you know Sean and I recently got an RV and I posted about some of our RV Inspiration for when we start to fix it up a little. To no ones surprise I also have an Amazon wish list of accessories I want to buy for the RV. Planning a camping trip in a RV has made me realize that there are a few things that we don’t have because tent camping is a little bit different than going in an RV.

So below are my some of the items I have in my RV Accessory Wish List.

AHL 90pcs Blade Fuse Assortment $6.99

You always need back ups when it comes to fuses! This is more of a Sean wish list item because as far as we know everything in the RV is from when it was built in 1986.

Debt Snowball: Organizing Our Debt

Today I wanted to talk a little about finances and in the current state of our economy during the pandemic we really need to keep an eye on how we are spending more than usual. In this post I am going to focus more on debt because keeping the debt we already have in check will help in the long run.

Something I use all the time is a debt snowball. What is a debt snowball? If done right a debt snowball is like rolling a snowball down hill, as it rolls it gets bigger and bigger.

When it comes to debt snowball it is the process of paying more than the minimum payment on your smallest debt while paying your minimum payment on the rest of your accounts. Once your smallest debt is paid the month amount is then added to your next debts payment. This strategy makes paying down you debts faster because you are making larger and larger payments as you move along.

To do this is use the following website, Undebt.it

Instagram Kitchen Inspiration

One room I haven’t really shared any wish lists for is our kitchen. Mostly because we aren’t 100% settled on how to remodel it. As with any relationship, our wants sometimes clash with the other person and the kitchen is one of those.

In my opinion I think that the person who spends most of their time in the space should get the last say. So, when it comes to the kitchen, the person who cooks, cleans, and cares for the space the most is me. As the person who does all the cooking and cleaning in the kitchen I want to remodel in a way that functions for me. For example, I want to place items in cupboards that would make it easier for me to grab while I’m cooking or cleaning but Sean doesn’t like it. My argument is that he isn’t even using it so why would it have to be convenient for him?
