DIY: Stripes

Finally! Here's the reveal of our dining room stripes.  Leveling and taping the stripes was very time consuming and a little challenging, but once we mastered that the painting was a breeze.  I used a measurement formula and some tips from a post on Young House Love, all of which were very helpful!
The color is Behr's Japanese Fern (Home Depot)

Stripes!

Today I'll be adding some DIY stripes to our new dining room area! I am so excited to add some visual interest and a pop of color to this space.  I'll be sure and document all the steps so you don't have to miss a thing! Wish me luck--fortunately I have helpers in the way of Mom and Sis coming over to help get the job done! Do you have any home improvements on your calendar?

Monogrammed Monday and E-mealz Winner

Good Morning! I wanted to share my new monogrammed wristlet with you that I won from Nautical By Nature's Marley Lilly giveaway.  It's red with a navy monogram, tres adorable, no? (Have to admit, I love seeing that new monogram!) (PS, Marley Lilly is incredible! I got this wristlet immediately! And my sister ordered me one of their famous floppy hats for my birthday and it's been on backorder and they could not have been nicer and more prompt about letting her know!)


Thanks to everyone who entered our E-mealz giveaway! I used random.org to select a winner and the winner is...


Congratulations Amy! Email me your email address and plan preference to betsy (at) heavenstobetsyblog (dot) com and we'll get you all set up!

My birthday is my favorite

http://rachelswandesign.tumblr.com/ via pinterest

It's my birthday! Today is my very favorite day of the year (am I allowed to admit that? sure, it's my blog.) and I can't wait to celebrate with my family and my Mr.  On the agenda for today: pedicures, presents, lunch, picking up the keys to our new apartment (talk about a birthday present) and dinner with my sweet husband.  I fully intend on wearing a massive bow and something sparkly all day long.

Tomorrow we're moving in to our new place and I'm so excited to have all our stuff out of boxes and back where it belongs! Stay tuned for a look at the new place next week and our E-mealz giveaway winner!

A Special Happy Birthday!


Happy Birthday Ashley Brooke! Not only is Ashley an amazing employer who I am blessed to work with everyday but she is the best friend a girl could ask for.   She is so, so thoughtful, tons of fun and is always there when I need her. I'm forever thankful to my husband for introducing me to his lifelong friend (I'm also quite sure he had no idea what he was starting when he made that introduction--haha!).

Like me, she believes in celebrating her birthday to the hilt, which is great since we were born just one day apart! I love getting to celebrate our birthdays together every year and I have no doubt there will be lots of glitter, champagne and cake in our future today and tomorrow!  Hooray for birthdays!

Hello!


Meal planning can be so helpful for your week and your budget, but sometimes its a struggle to come up with the meals and make your lists and pull it all together! 


E-mealz is a great service that for just $1.25 a week will provide you with a meal plan for 4-6 people or if your a newlywed like me, just 2 people.



E-Mealz relies on a team of experienced meal planners, writers and editors to create new dinner menus every week that are designed around grocery store sales (Publix!), seasonal specials and diet preferences. Subscribers download a recipe plan for the week with a matching aisle-by-aisle grocery list (score!). The easy-to-follow recipes usually contain fewer than seven ingredients to allow for prep times of less than 30 minutes.  

Menus are created around a budget of $75 per week for families and $35 per week for couples.

The best news is, we are giving away a 3 month membership for any plan that works for you!  You can preview the plans here. To enter the giveaway "like" E-mealz on Facebook or follow them on Twitter and leave a comment telling me which you've done. A winner will be chosen next Wednesday, June 8th.
