How to Paint Your Room Twice as Fast - {+HomeRightTV PaintSticks Review}

When HomeRight first approached me about trying their PaintStick products, I declined. After saying no, I started seeing many rave reviews from other DIY bloggers.

Finally, I agreed to try out both the PaintStick original and the PaintStick EZ Twist. I warned HomeRight that I have high expectations and that if they weren’t met, I wouldn’t blog about their PaintSticks.

How to Trim & Install Bi-Fold Doors (Dremel Ultra Saw Review)

I have a friend named Holly. She and I live in the same neighborhood and we help each other out with DIY projects. Holly and I were trying to figure out how to replace her sad laundry room door(s). 

Once we found some doors, they had to be trimmed before they were installed. Thank goodness for the #Dremelmaker. Made this project so much easier!

I can't say enough good things about SuzAnna's Antiques. Tucked away beside the railroad tracks on Durant Rd. This place is a true gem in the rough. Lots of vendors and things to choose from. And a wide range of finds in everyone's budget!

My boys (who whine and complain after the novelty of sports wears off) have been super excited to go to Karate several times a week at Peck's TKD. Ms. Peck and all the instructors are wonderful with the kids and really make the classes fun. Free WiFi for parents and a monitor to view the instructions at all times.

I've been taking Bikram yoga here on and off for over a year. When I first started I too was concerned about how it seemed much stricter than the usual yoga I was accustomed to. But, after a few more classes I began to understand the class style and how to tune in and push myself beyond the feelings of heat and sweat. When I'm active in going to class I can go 5 months or more without seeing the chiropractor. It truly is the best thing from my muscles and bone alignments. If you can go in with an open mind you won't be disappointed.
