Brushetta Burgers

Before you go thinking I cooked this fancy looking burger, let me tell you... I did not. However, it was cooked in my kitchen so I get a little credit, right? Ha! Probably not. Every summer our church has it's annual summer conference. We have over a dozen church plants scattered across

You prove them wrong. It was back in February, snowing like crazy if I remember correctly, and I was texting with my friend Jenny about signing up for the Nashville Half Marathon. I wanted to say no, because honestly, I had only ever done a 5k. Which was hard enough.  But something in me

I think I spent my entire 20's wearing ZERO accessories. In fact, I can remember thinking how much I hated when my mom would wear pretty earrings and necklaces that looked so glamourous. I didn't understand how much a piece of jewelry could make or break an outfit. I guess I was too into boys

Yup, it's the hubby. And just like Britney Spears, "Oops, I did it again"...... I've hijacked my wife's blog. If you're new here, then you probably weren't aware when Professor Van Puppet made his appearance last Valentine's Day. This is of course much sweeter than when I hijacked her

I'm probably one of the only chicks on the planet that can say I wish my mother-in-law would pack up her house, her husband and her entire set of cooking skills and move in with us. And not just say it, but mean it. And gawwwd do I mean it. I hear horror stories from women who say

It's been 9.5 years since my husband and I have taken a tropical vacation. We've been to many places, but nothing compares to the beautiful beaches of Cozumel. Holy cow. I'm in love. In true House of Rose fashion.... I give you the, "AHHHHHH! I'm in Cozumel" {with NO kids} pose. ;)

Welcome to the Inspire Me Please Weekend Blog Hop. I'm officially eating my words. I've been giving my husband crap about being off and on sick for 2 months... AND I woke up today SICK. I'm getting what I deserve I suppose. Or that's what he says anyway. LOL! Luckily my mother-in-law

It's been YEARS since my hair has been long enough to do fun stuff to it. I mean YEEEEEEARS. I remember at my wedding ceremony when my hair was halfway down my back {over 9 years ago}...but shortly there after I chopped it all off and it's been SLOWLY growing ever since. I almost feel like a

Welcome to the Inspire Me Please Weekend Blog Hop. Sorry if you were wondering what happened last week with the party...we decided to take a week off for Christmas. We assumed y'all would be soaking up all the time you could with your families rather than linking up to this party. Haha! But

I love stopping and taking a moment to reflect back on the past year. The good, the bad, the freaking fantastic...and all the in-between. And let's be honest, there's been a whole lot of freaking fantastic in the last 12 months. It's safe to say that 2013 was our best year yet. All
