Childhood Flashback: Double Dare Style

Recently a treasure was unearthed-a simple VHS tape that held something very entertaining! Here's the story!

A friend of ours, Keller, was on Family Double Dare back in 1993. Do you remember Double Dare? Double Dare was a game show that came on Nickelodeon. It was one of my favorites!

Ever since I found out that Keller was on Double Dare, I have been begging to see the episode. Well, it finally happened! The VHS was found and we had a viewing party on Sunday. It was magnificent! Not only was it entertaining to watch our friend and his family compete on Double Dare, but the old commercials were fantastic to watch!

Here's a picture of our friend (he's the little blond) and his family: The Killer Kellers!

Just in case your wondering, the Killer Kellers beat the other team and competed in the Obstacle Course where they won the grand prize! Way to go Killer Kellers!!!!

Patio Furniture Compromise

I have been wanting patio furniture for our back deck since we moved in to our home 4 years ago. However, the type of patio furniture we want has just not been in our budget. There are other home items on the list that must be purchased before patio furniture.

I really am not a fan of the cheap plastic chairs, so our deck just sat naked. That is until recently! I found a solution to make the cheap plastic chairs look a little cuter.

I found these green chairs at Wal-Mart.And these cute outdoor pillows at Wal-Mart.

I paired them together for a fun but inexpensive look. It's amazing what a pillow can do! It isn't the look I want permanently, but at least now I can sit out on the deck and enjoy a nice summer evening!

Tired of your outdoor furniture? Spruce it up with a pillow, recover the cushions or paint it a fun color! Life is too short not to enjoy a little outdoor living!
