I love using textural backgrounds when taking styled photos of food, DIY projects, and other fun things I do as a blogger.
I made pumpkin pie pudding as much for the flavor as for the alliteration. I'm a kitchen poet. Which is the lamest kind of poet you could ever aspire to be.
Truth be told, when I selected this book, I was a little worried. I've probably started and put down Middlesex five times over the past ten years, never getting further than a chapter or two.
I've never been much of a camping person (I'm more of a "glamping" person for sure). I've certainly done my fair share of it over the years, but I have to admit that I love my outdoorsy events best when I can still end up in a real bed after a shower at night.
All you pumpkin spice haters better cover your eyes and leave the room because it's pumpkin spice time around here.
I am pretty sure that I'm not alone in this sentiment, but I looooove the look of marble. My dream would be a marble countertop in my kitchen (although I know they aren't as stain resistant as other stone options), but since that renovation is still a long way off, I'll have to get by with my marble cheeseboard instead.
My friend Lauren is a darling. She has the sweetest pixie cut to match her equally sweet personality.
Whoever invented soup was a genius. I hope they somehow monetized the whole idea for themselves because they deserve it. Do you know what soup is?
Sometimes I just feel like I'm in a clothing rut, you know? Here's how it usually happens. I realize I'm wearing basically the same thing everyday.
You know those days when you're having a good hair day and it makes your day extra awesome? Yeah, us too.
Party cocktails are an art form all their own. They need to be easy to make in bulk (especially when you host more than 15-20 people!
Lately I've been feeling my personal style shift to simpler, more modern pieces. I'm not sure where my wardrobe is going to end up after I settle into my new look, but in the meantime, I've been experimenting with minimally styled accessories.
Hey, guys! Good morning! It's Casual Friday! The above photo is one of my favorites ever of our dear Gummergal (Laura) being funny during a shoot.
You know autumn is in full swing when you find yourself caught in a downpour! Despite the chilly rain, I am feeling so excited about this coming season.
Random story from high school: I used to be in SGA, which stands for Student Government Association. My junior year I think I was a representative (or something, I can't remember), but then my senior year I was vice president.
If there is one thing I know, it's that the Gummerman's (Laura and Todd) know how to throw a fun back yard party.
We thought it would be fun to give you some wall decorating ideas to try this week! If you've been looking for something new to hang on your walls, or you just moved into a new place and are starting from scratch, we hope you find something fun to make from this list.
I feel like there are so many little festivals and craft fairs that pop up this time of year. Cute events with names like "Apple Butter Makin' Days." Oh yes, my corner of the world (the Ozarks) is rad like that.
I've been crushing on the ceramic bells I've seen pop up in a few of my favorite stores all summer, so it was high time I tried to make something similar myself.
My philosophy when it comes to planning a menu for a party is pretty much this: what will taste delicious and be really easy to throw together.
