Fruit Infused Water

With temperatures rising here in Phoenix, we are all needing to up our water intake. For some people that may be really easy, but for others- not so much. I personally love drinking water, but I definitely get bored at times! Here are some of my most favorite combos to keep it interesting and keep me chugging!

The easiest way for me to infuse my water is by keeping a big dispenser in the fridge. I try and have a different infusion every day, and replace it with something new each night. That way the fruit infuses in to the water overnight, and it gets drank during the day!

If I am in need of some flavor for my water quickly, I am obsessed with adding 1-2 drops of Young Livings Lemon and/or Orange oils in a glass bottle. I actually start my day every day with warm water and two drops of Lemon. {I only ingest Young Living oils, and do not recommend ingesting another brand. If you are looking for more info, leave your email in the comments!}

Thats my Monday Tip for you loves. Drink up, infuse that water, and feel like a million bucks!

Flip It Friday – Drywall People!

Yep, you read that right, we have DRYWALL!! We had something hold us up for a few weeks, which is always so hard and frustrating. But now? Well now the drywall is up and it is really taking shape!! I love when you can walk in the home and totally tell what it is going to look like. Ready for a look? Welcome home!


When you walk in now you can walk around without falling in a hole! All plumbing and electrical is finished!


To the very left of this photo is where the amazing pantry will be, then the door opening is where the laundry room and garage will be. The opening to the far right goes down to the freaking incredible master bedroom!

And the master bathroom:


One thing in this home that I just cannot wait to see finished is the main living area. The outside is beautiful, and we are hoping to have the living area feel continued in to the outside. here is the area from both views:

The guest bath and bedrooms on the other side of the home are coming along beautifully as well. There are three other bedrooms on this side of the house, and we’ve got big plans to add fun touches to each of them! Here is what you will see when standing in the living area looking over to the bedrooms {and the front door is down that hall to the right}:


And the bath and bedrooms:

Needless to say, there is much more to be done..BUT we are making so much progress!! I just took these photos yesterday, so I can’t wait till I get over there next week and see what else has taken place.

I hope you are enjoying going through this whole process with us! It has been so fun to keep you updated in real time:) Love you! Happy Friday.
