Gluten Free Cream of Chicken Soup Mix Recipe

A couple weeks ago I decided that it was time to take the plunge and go on a completely gluten free diet.  I decided to do it for medical reasons and to see if I would start feeling better in general.  I have been thinking about it a lot lately, so I have asked a lot of questions about it and things like that.  One thing that surprised me was that there is gluten in cream of chicken soup!  I have at least 5 recipes that we use ALL THE TIME that use cream of chicken soup, so that worried me about going gluten free.  Well then my sister in law gave me this recipe and the idea of just making a mix and then adding water whenever I needed it sound so much better than having to make my own soup every time I made one of those recipes.  It's super easy to make and I know that it will definitely help me a lot with going gluten free.

Tips on How to Find the Perfect Gray Paint Color from Sherwin-Williams

I was given product in exchange for this post, all opinions are 100% my own.  

My house was built in 2010, right when the dark browns and beige were super popular.  Everything in my house was beige, the walls, ceilings, tiles, carpet and finishes.  At first it didn't bother me, but as we have been remodeling our house and adding more and more white and gray, the beige wall color was starting to clash. So I decided it was time to paint my walls gray (and my ceilings white) to give my house a nice updated feel.  What I didn't realize is that gray can be a tricky color to pick, because not all grays are the same.  Some are cool, some are warm, some pull blue, some pull purple and some pull green or beige.  Plus there are a TON of different grays too.  So today I am going to share with you the process I went through to find the perfect gray for my house.

DIY Kitchen Pantry Sign with Subway Art Printable

This post contain affiliate links.

This past month we have been remodeling our kitchen and I had to change out the vinyl that I had over my pantry.  I am trying to make my style a little more fancy and not so cute, so I wanted to make a really nice frame for the space.  I had a hard time trying to come up with something to put in the frame because I wanted something there that was unique and something that you don't see every day.  I was going to do a fun quote that said "Together is our happy place" but then decided that I wanted some more fun. So instead I decided to make a fun subway art.  I love how it turned out!
