lynda’s grill

I have to share one of my favorite diners out in the middle of nowhere!! A little gem found in Taylorsville, KY, this place is nothing short of superb!

Lynda’s Grill serves daily lunch specials (ALL HOMEMADE!!) five days a week, as well as an array of diner favorites, from the FAMOUS 1/2 lb. “Boss Cheeseburger” to the mini sliders with a side of fries! I am particularly proud of this little gem, because my mom has been the sole owner for a whopping 20 years!! So, if you ever get the chance, you definitely have to make a pit stop here! I promise, you won’t be disappointed!! 🙂

wine corks

If you’re anything like me, you will hoard everything, thinking it will eventually come in handy! Over the past few years, I’ve become a wine connoisseur. While the bottles are attractively displayed on the top of my kitchen cabinet, I wasn’t sure what to do with the wine corks.

I did a little research & found these great (and INEXPENSIVE) ideas! With simple materials such as a styrofoam ball (coated with brown primer/paint), spare wood scraps, old photo frames, clock center, etc. these projects can be done in a few hours and are very inexpensive! They look so urban-chic & retro, not to mention they’re “green”!! Check them out here!

book worm

There are a few books (oldies, but goodies!) that have recently inspired me to make some changes & entertain me along the way! Nothing like a feel-good book!

1- Chelsea Chelsea Bang Bang – by Chelsea Handler

From page one, it’s a laugh to the very end, and pure good entertainment! I love her show on the E! Network and this book only makes me love her more! She is hilarious when she tells stories from her childhood, especially because some of them are SO relatable!! She is vulgar, but nothing short of entertaining!! Love it!! I will be purchasing her second book very soon…can’t believe I haven’t yet!

2 – Skinny Bitch – by Rory Freedman & Kim Barnouin

This is my go-to health and diet book. The title explains it all – how to become a Skinny Bitch… It’s a “tough love” guide to stop eating crap & to start looking fab!!

3 – The Secret – by Rhonda Byrne

The third book I am currently reading is a life book. Basically it describes the “Law of Attraction” and helps you make your dreams a reality, simply by using your own perspective & reaching your goals with your mind! Great reccomedation from years ago & glad I took the suggestion!
