I feel like Memorial Day is the unofficial start to the patriotic season. From now until the FOJ (fourth of July), I love to bust out the red, white, and blue errrrr-where. When my husband and I were first married (almost 13 years ago!), we decorated...ahem, I decorated our home in Americana decor from floor to ceiling, y'all. When I started phasing that out a few years later, I set aside a few of my favorite pieces and love to pull them out every year at this time. I thought it would be fun to add a monogram to the festive fun this year. Letters A-Z are available for instant download below.

This Easy Pizza Dip is perfect for your next gathering. 
It goes together fast and is crustless...perfect for low carb diets.

Easy Pizza Dip | Perfect low carb recipe that kids and adults both love!
This Easy Pizza Dip was my lifeline when I did low carb dieting, y'all. Even now that I have a completely different nutritional plan, we still indulge in this every once in a while. It's yummy and crust-free, so it comes together really easily. If you want to do the lower card version, serve it with veggies or some of those homemade cheese crisps I see floating around Pinterest all the time! Check out the easy recipe below.

DIY Patio Area with Texas Lamp Posts

Our DIY Patio Area (with "Texas Lamp Posts") is finally complete.
We brought it to life with lots of colorful flowers and decor.

We put the finishing touches on our little patio area last week. I'm in love with what we're now calling our "Texas Lamp Posts" (thanks to our friend, Gary, for that one!). Adding hanging baskets and vintage strands of lights to them have really brought the entire area to life. We absolutely love hanging out here and are thrilled that it's ready for summer entertaining and relaxing.
