Wedding Style

It’s been 7 and a half years since my wedding, but it may as well have been over a decade with the way things have changed since. When I got married it was common to have your bridesmaids all wearing the same floor length dress in the same color, the same shoes and the same […]

High Five for Friday

Happy Friday all! I know it’s said all too frequently, but kids really do grow up way too quickly. I realize that in the coming years my husband and I are going to have many obstacles to tackle with our kids and at times it can all seem very daunting. This week my 4yo son […]

Old Things & New Things

I ordered this jacket a few weeks ago from Anthropologie and as soon as I got it I loved it. It is incredibly soft and light, yet warm which leads to me lounging around in it all day, not just when I’m out running around. It’s a wonderful piece to add to a wardrobe for […]

Cinnamon Bun Cake

Just when I thought cinnamon buns couldn’t get any better, I found thisĀ Giant Cinnamon Roll Cake! I have yet to meet someone that can pass up a cinnamon roll (unless you gave up sugar for lent or are gluten free…sorry girls!!) and I’m certainly not one of them. We were celebrating a friends birthday during […]


A few weeks ago I was finding it rather difficult to pull together a monochromatic look (seen here), but since then I’ve been finding myself dressing monochromatically without even trying. In a way it follows my shopping theory, that I find the best purchases when I am not looking for them. Any time I’m on […]

Loving Lately: Spring Frocks

Along with warmer weather, springtime also brings a slew of activities that require (or allow) you to throw on dresses. Whether you have a shower, girls lunch, or any other fun event coming up, I’ve gathered some dresses that I’ve been loving lately. There are a ton of options out there right now. Everything from […]

High Five for Friday

Happy Friday, friends! It’s officially spring and I couldn’t be more pleased! Now if only I could put away my winter coats for good, I’d be one seriously happy girl. That and finally clearing my kids of colds and winter illnesses for good! They both got hit with awful colds on Monday, so we’ve been […]

Baked Macaroni and Cheese

Macaroni and cheese is one of those comfort foods I would hate to do without. My son, who is an extremely picky eater, took almost 4 years until he began enjoying it! And when I made this as a side a few evenings ago he finally said, “Mom, this is the best dinner ever!” A […]

A Little Spring Decorating

Details: Target basket / Pier 1 florals / HomeGoods bowl / Pier 1 eggs / Bunnies (similar) Each year after Christmas has passed I find myself eager to get all of the decorations down. I can’t wait to de-clutter our home after the slew of presents take over our place. But once everything is back […]


Some days it feels good to keep my outfits plain and simple. Denim on denim and a great pair of sneaks can surely accomplish that. It also feels quite refreshing after being bundled in sweaters for 5+ months. I recently ordered a new pair of Converse and have since been wearing them everyday that the […]
