Everyone will tell you not to paint it as you can't remove the paint later. Here's our thought when faced with the similar conundrum. If we hate it the look and color of the stone now we'll probably hate it later and have no desire to see it again. So, after investigating our options, we decided to paint it! We had a similarly large rocked fireplace that was at close glance, a lot of grout. We knew that ripping it out was the $1000 option but painting could work and be only around $100. Sure enough, it's gorgeous and now a stunning part of our living room. A coat of white masonry primer and two coats of white paint later, we are no longer dying to take a sledge hammer to it. If you want a first shot at the easier, cheaper solution, you have little out of pocket to lose. Good luck!!

Not all sodas are created equal. I am SO surprised that no one here drinks Zevia, a stevia soda. Zevia is the only soda I allow in my household. It contains no calories, no chemicals, no articifical sweeteners and no sugar. Oh, and no phosphoric acid either. It's a healthy soda, and thankfully, other than its natural citric acid on my teeth, doesn't apply to any of these concerns. I think I could tackle that last concern with a straw.

There are so many ways to give an awesome party for a lot less. However, it is about getting create and doing the work. I just posted pictures of a co-ed baby shower for 60 that we threw on Sunday. All in all, we only spent a couple hundred dollars on food, drink and decor and it was worth every penny.

I can jump in here. The dresser/changer and crib are from Wal-Mart's BabyMod line. Lots of great reviews for it including my sister in law. They look like a million bucks for MUCH less.
