DIY U of U Shirts

I seriously love DIY-ing shirts.  It is so easy to do that it makes it hard for me to ever buy ready-made shirts!!! These U of U shirts were made from shirts we already had so it made this project super cheap!
You can use your teams color if you aren't a fan of the Utes, but it better not be a blue or white Y!!!!!  HaHaHa
All you need is a shirt, heat transfer vinyl, and a cutter {I used my Cricut}

Be Proud of Who YOU Are

The blogging world has some amazing women and today I am so grateful and humbled to be part this...

I am Brave and Beautiful - a beauty movement that is sweeping the globe. Colbie Caillat started it with her recent song and video called TRY. My blogging friend Megan from Brassy Apple wanted to push this movement along and invited women from all over to share what they looked like without make up and I joined in!! Colbie's song says, "Take your make up off. Let your hair down {I actually like mine pulled up and out of the way!}... Look into the mirror at yourself, Do you like you? Cause I like you... "
Megan and my friend Cobi have been the team behind this whole project. Their worldwide vision included creating their own video inspired by the song TRY. The talent of Robbins Creative made it possible for them to pull it off. Click play and see the beauty and bravery displayed and you might even recognize a few faces!
Me along with 101+ other blogging women from different backgrounds, religions, ethnicities, ages, shapes and sizes have decided to be Brave and Beautiful! You can join in this movement too by sharing what you look like without makeup on. You don't have to be a blogger! Just tag your photo with #IamBraveAndBeautiful on Instgram and search the hashtag to see who else has joined in. ALSO, if you tag it with a second hashtag - #ColbieTRY we just might be able to get Colbie Caillat's attention since she was the inspiration behind it all!

Are you brave and beautiful?
I am, here I go!
This is actually kinda scary and a bit personal but that is part of being brave!

Foodie Friday - Fry Sauce

When you hear the word fry sauce what do you think of?  I think of the yummiest most delish thing you could ever dip any fry in.  I guess that fry sauce is a Utah thing.  I didn't realize this until we were in Florida a few years ago.  We wanted a late snack so we hit the drive through at McDonald's for some fries {and, I'm sure an ice cream cone, too}.  I asked the kid working the window, "can I please have some fry sauce?"  He looked at me really weird and asked, "you mean, ketchup?"  Burk just laughed and said,
"Stac, fry sauce is a Utah thing!"
So what is Utah fry sauce?...

Caramels

I love this time of year.  I do miss summer but fall is probably my favorite when it comes to the clothes and the food.  Nothing better then wearing a baggy sweat shirt and leggins with flip flops!!!
One of my favorite treats this time of year is my
