High Five for Friday

Anyone still in a food coma?? Fortunately I was able to manage getting through Thanksgiving dinner (for those who aren’t updated, today marks day 7 after having my wisdom teeth removed), but not enough to stuff myself which I found to be enjoyable. What I really mean is I was able to go all out […]

Snow Time

Well it may not officially be winter, but it sure feels like it! After having my wisdom teeth removed on Friday I decided it was time to actually get dressed and put some make-up on. I realize that I still look like I am storing a few acorns in my cheeks for winter, but I […]

Pumpkin Pie

Thanksgiving is two days away and I can’t think of a much more appropriate post than my favorite pumpkin pie. Let me start by saying that this is not your average pumpkin pie. It requires a bit more work than your typical pie, but I’ve been making this for the past few years and without […]


Well, I have survived for three days since having my wisdom teeth removed. Not a whole lot of anything was accomplished by me this weekend, but it did get me looking towards the week ahead (praying I’ll be able to eat by Thanksgiving!) and realizing how much I have to be thankful for. I figured […]

High Five for Friday

Well this is one week I was not wishing to rush. Today I am having all four of my wisdom teeth removed and not exactly looking forward to it. My week began full of excitement as my husband and I were in NYC (which you probably know based on yesterday’s post), and is going to […]

I heart NYC

As I had mentioned to you all, my husband Jack and I were able to enjoy a quick overnight trip in NYC this past Mon/Tues. It’s always nice to get some one on one time with each other, that includes the four hour drive to/from the city. Any time in the car sans kids is […]

You’re My Inspiration!

Well it’s been approximately 6 months since I ventured into the blogging world and ¬†although at times I still feel like an infant in this atmosphere, I also feel miles ahead of when I first began. I feel more confident in my skin and find it easier to share my thoughts and opinions with you […]

Chocolate Pudding Dessert

Since I’m a lover of just about anything sweet, it should come as no surprise that I love pudding. As childish as it may be I’d be happy to devour a box of instant pudding on my own. ¬†This dessert, therefore, is right up my alley. We celebrated a friends birthday this past weekend so […]

Pretty Pastels (+ Wonder Cloth Winner!)

Pastels are are my favorite colors to wear. They are soft, subtle and beautiful. Blush pink is one color that’s always available, but I’m thrilled that the abundance of mint seems to be sticking around. This is another JCrew coat from a past season, but check out the beautiful colors they have available this year. […]

High Five for Friday

Happy Friday, friends! As fall turns to winter I’m doing my best to keep the kids entertained indoors. We’ve spent time at the library, a local science center, ‘picture’ toy shopping (Jack takes pics of the toys he hopes to get for Christmas), and breaking out the crafts at home. Luckily they both enjoy helping […]
