Hey guys! I have another refashion today - I’m going to show you how easy it is to transform a men’s tee into a cute, feminine, doily-pocket shirt.

saucy chicken tacos {easy 30 minute recipe} & a giveaway

chicken-tacos-recipe-easy

Today I’m sharing one of my family’s favorite simple dinner recipes: saucy chicken tacos. It’s an easy recipe that uses pantry ingredients and comes together in under 30 minutes, which makes it a winner in my book. It uses the same sorts of ingredients you’re used to in chicken tacos: tomatoes, sour cream, cheese, etc., but […]

Have you ever taken a great photo, sent it to be printed, and gotten it back only to see that half of someone’s head is cut off? Or maybe you tried to enlarge a group photo to an 8×10 and the people on the sides got cut off. Why would the photo lab do that? […]
