GE Appliances Prep for the Holidays #BestBuy #GEKeurigKcupRefrigerator #GEProfileGasRange

Best Buy has been our go-to place for home appliances for years. This year, we're on the hunt for a new stove and fridge as a holiday gift (to us, from us!) for our new home. Best Buy is currently promoting GE appliances this holiday season. We already own a number of GE products and appliances, for two key reasons: they're dependable and they have a unifying appearance: clean lines with minimal curves. Two front runners this season are the GE Profile Gas Range and the Keurig Kcup French Door Refrigerator.

Transform Your Shower with the Razor Luxury 3-way Rainfall Combo #forthehome #luxuryshower #DIYBathroom

     One of the easiest ways to upgrade a bathroom is to install a luxury showerhead. It's as simple as a DIY project can get — taking only a few minutes to install — and creates a noticeable transformation to any bathroom. Personally, we love the upscale look of a waterfall shower head, but a handheld shower wand is also a must in our home. When we found that the Razor High-Fashion 8-inch Slimline Design 3-Way Rainfall Combo Shower Head from offers both of these features and more, we were really excited to try it.

Celebrate Halloween in Style! #DesignByHumans #graphictees #holidaygiftguide

     Halloween is one of our family's favorite holidays. We love to go all in on clothes, costumes, candy and decorations. Being Disney fans as well, when we came across the 'Halloween the girl with the crocodile' shirt on the Design by Humans site, we had to have it to celebrate Halloween! Those of you who are Haunted Mansion fans will recognize the design as one of the story panels shown when you enter the first room of the ride. It's such a unique Halloween design that brings a lot of fun and conversation between people who recognize exactly what it is. 

    The shipping for this shirt was fast and the 100% cotton material makes for a super soft graphic tee. With the holidays right around the corner, this is a great place to find unique gifts for friends and family. They also design phone covers, mugs, notebooks and more.

For the Home: Kitchen Gizmo Snap'N Strain #spacesaver #strainer

One of my biggest problems with conventional strainers is the space required to store them. It takes a matter of seconds to strain pasta or potatoes, yet my precious shelf space is filled with several bulky strainers. Then, after being used, into the dishwasher it goes, taking up even more space that could be used for several dirty dishes. It's such a silly problem, but it drives me crazy. Thankfully, Kitchen Gizmo has rescued me with their ingenious Snap'N Strain!

Home Safety:with First Alert Carbon Monoxide Alarm #10yearbattery #FirstAlert

With the recent hurricane in Florida and all of the generators being used, we've been hearing so many sad stories about carbon monoxide affecting loved ones in the home. It is considered the 'silent killer' and prevention should be taken just as seriously as fire prevention in your home. Many people may not realize that carbon monoxide can come from a variety of places, such as your generator, chimney, furnace, garage, gas stove, water heater, and even the gas grill if it's a little too close to an intake vent. Of course, our number one priority is keeping our family safe and we hope that this information will help to keep yours safe as well! Carbon monoxide detectors are a MUST. We use the First Alert 10-year Carbon Monoxide Alarm in our home, which has quite a few additional features that most detectors do not. Check it out below!
