A Before & After Teen’s Bedroom with Remodo Boxed Rooms

*This post is brought to you by Remodo. All opinions are my own.

Remodo Boxed Rooms-14 My teenage daughter loves to rearrange and redecorate her room. I’m definitely the one who passed down that gene to her. For years my husband would come home from work and the microwave would be moved to a different location in the kitchen. If it could be moved, I moved it.

I’m no expert when it comes to decorating, so I’m always on the hunt for easy ideas for decorating the spaces in our home. Our kids, for the most part, have free range when it comes to decorating their rooms. It took me years to let go of that control and let them just do their thing. “Oh, you want a giant black chalkboard wall in your room? Sure, why not?!

When my daughter and I heard about Remodo’s new Boxed Rooms, we knew this was exactly what she needed to turn her room into a space that not only reflects her personality, but makes decorating easy and simple. Here’s Hannah’s room before.

I not only love the way this Smoked Sausage and Pasta with Broccoli dish tastes, I love the way it looks. The green just pops and this has been an easy way to get my family to eat some broccoli. The key is to throw the broccoli in the pot of boiling pasta about 2 minutes before it’s done. The broccoli turns a gorgeous bright green and it’s not mushy, but instead crisp and flavorful.

The other thing that kicks this pasta up a notch is lemon zest and lemon juice. It gives it a slight citrus flavor which goes fantastic with the minced garlic and broccoli. Are you hungry yet? [Read more…]
