Change is coming…

I’m seeing many fall lovers anxiously pull out their fall decorations. I love fall. We got married in the fall! But goodness, this Midwest girl wants to hang on to summer as long as I can! So instead of seeing all things fall on this post, you’ll see how we are hanging on to all things sunny and warm before we step into my favorite season, fall.

In addition to owning a business, we also homeschool. We have unofficially started the school year, because our kids ASKED to start school! If that doesn’t make a mama’s heart smile, I don’t know what would. So I obliged and we have slowly started incorporating school into our day. Our official start date will be after Labor Day weekend. Here is our 4th grader working hard on vocabulary words.

No matter how you are spending your last few weeks of summer, we hope you are all staying healthy and well. Soon, we will be ready to welcome fall! Let me savor these fleeting moments of summer. 🙂

Need Party Help?

I love planning parties! You know what else I love doing? Doing what I can to make my life easier while planning said parties. Sometimes I make the cake, sometimes I order it from a bakery. Sometimes I decorate for the party myself and sometimes I want something different (or easier). This past weekend, I had Party Ambiance out to decorate for our kid’s birthday party/heart anniversary! I first met Lena as I was talking to my neighbor in my front lawn. My neighbor said, “Well, look at all those balloons!” and I turned around and was warmly welcomed by Lena, who was carrying two large and fabulous balloon decorations for our party. She made the planning part easy and all online. The day I met her, she worked quickly in our home and left us party ready! I still stare at the creations she made and it’s been two days since she installed the balloons. They are just so FUN and happy! If you love having unique decorations for your parties, she is your gal!

Find her on Instagram!

Our kids and party guests loved it! I loved that I could take some ‘hats’ off my head. As a mama, we wear many hats. Party decorations does not need to be one of those hats. Thanks Party Ambiance!

Happy Birthday USA!

Are things starting to open up where you live? Are you ready to get some summer fun planned? Our family is gearing up for one of our favorite holidays. Where we get to wear all our favorite colors (legit red, white and blue are some of our family’s favorite colors) and eat delicious food. We love getting to spend time around our extended family and lighting off fireworks together! So go dig through your closet to find the most patriot outfit in anticipation of the celebration!

Now, if you are looking for a transportable side dish, look no further. This could even work as your main dish! If you are planning a camping trip this summer, I like to make a big bowl of this to take with us as it makes for an easy meal. My husband loves Italian subs and this dish calls for everything he’d normally put on his Italian sub sandwich.

Stay safe and Happy Birthday America!

*10 Year Business Anniversary & GIVEAWAY*

First of all, THANK YOU for allowing us to serve you these last 10 years. It has been our privilege to create beautiful spaces you love!

In June of 2010, as the job market was dwindling and the economy was tanking. Phillips Tile & Stone was born. Trevor had his first project the very weekend I was a matron of honor in a dear friend’s wedding. Her anniversary helps me remember the exact day otherwise we might not have remembered. So thanks for getting married Jason and Alisha! Love you guys! Happy 10 year wedded anniversary to you both, too!

We’ve slowly grown over the years. I guess you could say we learned about business as we were in business. Our logo was created 3 years later in 2013 by a sweet woman from our church. The Versailles tile pattern used on there was intentional as it was Michelle’s first Mother’s Day gift from Trevor. When we celebrated 5 years as a company, we were pleasantly shocked! To us, 5 years was huge! At year 7 Michelle finally sat down, with a newborn baby in her arms and created a website. All the while Trevor was hustling at creating masterpieces for our wonderful clients. In year 9 we become an LLC and officially added Michelle as a co-owner, another exciting milestone. We are so thankful for the business owners, home owners, fellow craftsman, designers, friends and family we’ve been able to assist along the way. It’s an honor we hold very dearly. Never in our dreams would we have imagined this would be how we put food on the table but we are loving the adventure!

To celebrate, we are having a giveaway on our business Instagram AND Facebook accounts! We hope you join in on the fun. If you haven’t figured this out yet, we appreciate you all so much!

Here is our Facebook post to enter!

Nebraska and Iowa…thanks for letting us make you prettier. 🙂
So surreal! Thanks for letting us have our moment to celebrate!

Simple Mother’s Day Meal Idea

Mother’s Day is this coming Sunday. It’s possible to make this day special no matter the situation you find yourself in. If you are looking for inspiration keep reading. I’m all about finding ways to make celebrating easy but look exceptional. One way I’ve found to do that is Charcuterie Board Meals. My family loves charcuterie board dinners. Or lunches. You could even make a dessert style charcuterie board! Let your imagination soar as you make your grocery list and tailor it to your taste buds. Here are a few ideas to add to your grocery list.

  1. Cured meats. (my family loves roast beef, summer sausage and pepperoni)
  2. Cheese. (We are simple, Colby Cheese for the win! And lots of it!)
  3. Olives.
  4. Nuts.
  5. Dried Fruit.
  6. Crackers or baguette bread. (At least 2 types of crackers)
  7. Jelly, honey, mustard or jam.
  8. Pickles
  9. Cookies or chocolate pieces
  10. Guacamole, salsa and pita chips
  11. Hard boiled eggs

There are so many ways you could enjoy this easy meal, too. Outside on the patio, on a hike, as a picnic. It’s very transportable. Be sure to include the kids in the making and clean up process. Enjoy and Happy Mother’s Day!
