  1. I never, ever want to buy another kitchen gadget/thing to store but I seriously think I want an Instant Pot. I keep hearing so much about them, we try to cook pretty clean every night and time is a problem when it comes to said clean eating. I haven’t even told my husband because he would run right out and buy one and then I would have to find a home for it 🙂 And that buffalo checked couch. Seriously fabulous! Have a great weekend!

    1. I’m in the same boat Marcie. I don’t have one extra inch of storage space in the kitchen but my ancient slow-cooker is on its last leg so I’m trying to decide what to replace it with. I’ve never used a pressure cooker or rice cooker so I’m not sure how much I would use those features, but I’m intrigued by them! You have a great weekend too! Thanks for your input!💙


  2. Beautiful Post =) as for that Instant pot. I am seriously considering one and have been for a few months! I have heard amazing things about it. I love that succulent, moss pumpkin centerpiece. It is so pretty and different. Definitely a stand out. =)
