Use Wunderlist to Explore Your City

This is not a sponsored story, I just found a really awesome app and want to tell you about it!

We've lived in Kansas City almost 5 years and it seems like every day I learn of something new to do. It could be an event, attraction or restaurant. I've been telling my self I need to start a list so I don't forget...and so I actually visit the places.

I've been on the search for an app that will make this easy. I've tested a few different ones and the winner is Wunderlist.

It's amazing. The website gives this description:
Wunderlist is the easiest way to get stuff done. Whether you’re planning a holiday, sharing a shopping list with a partner or managing multiple work projects, Wunderlist is here to help you tick off all your personal and professional to-dos.
The app works on almost every device and even has a Chrome extension (love). So far the free version is working perfectly for my needs.  

I've created a few lists: Restaurants to Try, Brunch Spots to Try, Drinks to Try, Places to Go and Movies to Rent. Here's a little peek at the app experience:

Wunderlist App -- create lists and check off tasks

So, whenever someone mentions one of these things I open the app and write it down. Done. If you're so inclined you can add notes, a URL and even a due date.

Master Bedroom Refresh - Dark and Moody

We've been in our home almost five years and we've done a number of projects during that time. One room that's been untouched is our master bedroom.

I have that itch to paint.

We currently have darker tan walls with dark brown walls in the attached master bath. I'm just over it.

I'm thinking dark and moody in the master and a much lighter color in the bathroom to really change up the space. I'm shooting to have the fun begin end of September or first part of October.We would do the painting ourselves too!

This would also give me a good reason to buy new bedding, curtains and update the few pictures we have in the room.

That gives me a month or so to plan. For fun, I thought I'd share some of my inspiration rooms with you!

Which is your favorite? Anyone else make the switch to really dark walls?

S'More Cheese Ball

S'More Cheese Ball

Cheese balls are so fun. My total weakness is our family favorite cheese ball with pineapple, green onions and peppers. And dessert cheese balls are a close second.

I love my cookbook, Great Balls of Cheese. It has cheese balls for every occasion both savory and sweet. Plus it's super cute with amazing photos.
