McFarland USA

Disclaimer: I received complimentary McFarland USA on DVD & Blu-Ray in exchange for my honest review. I was not persuaded to write a positive review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

McFarland USA is the feel good movie of the year! Based on true events that took place in McFarland, California this movie will have you rooting for the young athletes the whole way through.

Set at a high school, McFarland High School, the main character Jim White moves his family to this school after being laid off from his previous job as a Football Coach in Idaho where his family previously lived. Upon becoming a PE teacher at this new school Mr. White, played by Kevin Costner, discovers some talented students and starts a cross-country team. Throughout the movie there are struggles but you are left with a feeling of pride for these athletes while they work their way through each race.

I highly recommend purchasing this movie to watch, its a wonderfully uplifting story. This movie also did very well in theatres and receives high reviews on Amazon (4.8 out of 5 stars from 2,500 reviewers!)

With a runtime of 129 minutes and a PG rating this is sure to be a fun film for the entire family to enjoy!

DIY: Fence to conceal utility meters {Garbage Cans, A/C Units}

Utility Meter Cover

>> Re-pin this idea to your Pinterest

I’ve been on a role with all the house projects lately so I thought I’d share the latest one with my Darlins! Our home had a major eye-sore, the utility meters were all situated right at the end of the driveway, which lowered the curb appeal. Ever since the moment we moved in I envisioned the day that this idea to conceal them would come to fruition!

However I can’t take the credit for completing this amazing project, my handy husband put in all the hard work putting this gorgeous fence up!

This project was actually inspired by similar cover-ups that I saw on Pinterest using pallet fences. For my fence I decided to use vinyl picket fence that we had leftover from the fence that my husband installed on the hillside behind our home. To give it a bit of a fancy flare (and to further conceal the ugly meters) I purchased this decorative vinyl piece and had my hubby screw it to the backside of the fence pieces.

I can’t even begin to explain what a difference it makes having those meters blocked by this cute little fence, now I don’t cringe as I pull into the driveway 😉

Oh and by the way, there are so many great DIY house projects that you can do with these high quality beautiful lattice panels think wall hangings, planter walls, patio deck covers and more!

DIY: Update of A/C Vents with stylish Bronze Scroll design vents!

New Vents

>> Re-pin this idea to your Pinterest

My latest house project was updating our old rusty air conditioner vents with gorgeous bronze scroll design floor registers! When we moved into our home we noticed that in addition to being unattractive, most of the floor a/c registers were very difficult to open and close.

So I went out to a local home improvement store to find new, clean, and easy to open vents but was not impressed with spending $10 per vent for the same style we already had. Before making the purchase I decided to do some research on alternative styles available. I happened upon these gorgeous antique bronze coated scroll design vents and decided to purchase a few in addition to these more affordable generic black finish scroll design vents.

Once they arrived I was highly impressed with the quality and even more pleased with how they completely transformed the rooms! Who knew something as simple as a decorative air vent could change the whole look of your home?! :)

They are super easy to install and the black finish vents that I purchased actually cost less than the generic vents you find at home improvement stores!
