Girls Indian Costume Homemade by Daddy

Girls Indian Costume

I just had to share this girls Indian costume that was homemade by her daddy for her school’s colonial days this week. When we saw the emails about needing colonial costumes for our kids, I immediately panicked. I’m not exactly what you’d call “crafty”, so to be honest, I ignored it initially. But after constant questions from my type-A first ... Read More »

A Clean Home without the Chemicals: LYSOL® Power & Free™

lysol power free kitchen cleaner no bleach

Susie Homemaker I am not…but that doesn’t mean I don’t try desperately to work for and with my family to keep our home clean. I’d hate to confess all the hours I spend researching cleaning methods, checklists and DIY formulas in an effort to find clean house utopia. In fact, just last month I shared on TV some of the ...

Spa & At Home Beauty Treatments to Help Your Budget

While we all would love regular trips to the spa, the truth is we can’t all afford weekly beauty treatments like massages, manicures, facials and laser hair removal!

Not only did I start a juice fast today, but at long last, I embarked upon my home office organization project! You know I love to be as transparent as possible with you all, so I thought I’d give you a peak into the dumping ground this room has become after only 6 months of living in our home: Hopefully ...

The Long Road Home

We’ve started the long road home to Nashville… It’s hard to believe that just a week ago I received the call from my husband that his dad had passed away and hours later I piled our two kids into the mini van to make the 13 hour trek down to South Florida amidst squalls from Hurricane Isaac. It’s a blur. ... Read More »

Rick Cone Sr. Visitation & Funeral Service: August 2012


Even though the kids and I just arrived in Florida (and we’re still so grateful for all your prayers yesterday!), everyone’s been asking for details on the visitation and funeral service for Ricky’s dad, Rick Cone Sr. that will be taking place this week. I want to be as clear and factual as possible for those of you purely seeking ... Read More »

In Memory of Dad Cone: August 26, 2012


It’s ironic that I posted an update on Dad Cone for the first time tonight in over a month and now, here I am, just hours later with another update. But this one will be my last. Richard Allen Cone, Sr. passed away tonight at 8:14pm. Yes, my husband’s father died tonight in Hospice care. Thankfully, Ricky has been in ... Read More »

Dad Cone Update: August 26, 2012


It’s been a month and a half since I’ve updated you on Ricky’s dad. Most of you know I stopped sharing regularly on here because I came under some scrutiny for sharing a story that’s not my own. But when it comes to something that affects our family in such a way as it has this summer, I believe this ... Read More »

Dad Cone Update: July 8, 2012


I know it’s been awhile since I’ve posted a Dad Cone update, but honestly, since we haven’t been in Florida with him, it’s been hard to share second-hand information. But Ricky just flew back down to Florida on Friday night, so he’s gotten to see dad in person for the first time since mid-June. When I spoke to dad a ... Read More »
