High Five for Friday

It’s Friday and this is one week I am happy to see come to an end! We had been on a nice little healthy streak and then began the dreaded cough Sunday night. Not me, although I wish it were, but my 4yo son. It’s that cough where you know you’re in for a week […]

Salted Oatmeal Cookies with Dark Chocolate

Sweet. Salty. Cookie. I’m sold. As if the dark chocolate and oatmeal combo wasn’t enough, a sprinkle of sea salt on these delicious cookies makes them hard to resist. This was another recipe that floated into my inbox from Real Simple and found its way right into my kitchen. They make a terrific addition to […]

Love for the Little Ones

Last week I shared some ways to start prepping your home for Valentine’s Day. This week, I have children on my mind. There are so many adorable ways to shower your little ones with some Vday love. Etsy, as always, has some great goodies including these mini felt envelopes, some┬álove bug onesies for twins or […]

Old Favorites

Since the cold weather doesn’t appear to be leaving us anytime soon (and by cold, I now mean anywhere from -15 – 30 degrees F) I find myself turning to sweaters that I know will keep me from shivering as I run around town. This sweater has been in my closet for years and it […]

Short Locks

You may know by now that when it comes to my hair, I’m always up for a change. It keeps things feeling fresh because honestly, I tend to tire of things (things, not people, don’t worry, my love!) all too quickly. When I started this blog 8-ish months ago, I had shoulder length blond hair. […]

High Five for Friday

Thank goodness for my slew of scarves and gloves and love for accessories because they are turning out to be quite handy this winter. Holy cow it’s been cold! Tons of indoor games and activities kept us busy this week while we hid from the beyond freezing weather. I also made a somewhat drastic change […]

Sale, Sale, Sale!

Anyone else feeling a little bombarded by all of the SALE emails flooding your inbox each day? It would be a full-time job to keep up with everything, but I’ve sorted through a bit of it and found some pieces I love (and a few that I own) at fantastic prices. Most of these items […]

Add a Little Love

With Valentine’s Day creeping up on us, I’ve been searching for little additions that would add a touch of love to our home. I love the bowls and plates because they’d be adorable to use any day of the year. How cute to dress up your cupcakes or muffins with some heart wrappers? Granted, the […]

Flannel + Fur

Want to know an easy way to quickly dress up a flannel shirt and jeans? Throw on a little fur! I love the way this fur vest and belt class up the outfit with very little effort. I found the vest on Ruelala a few months ago and am thankful to have it in my […]
