Monthly Archives for April 2014

Mother’s Day: Are you ready?

For the most part, I find females extremely easy to shop for. That is, until I wait until the last minute and I’m stuck scrambling for ‘the perfect’ gift! I tend to spend my time focusing on my mother, grandmother and mother in-law and forget that I’m a mother as well! A week or so […]

Wardrobe Staple: Graphic Tee

One staple in my closet are graphic t-shirts. They are such an easy way to add to your outfit in a fun, casual way. They can be tucked into skirts, worn casually with shorts all summer long or thrown on with your jeans and layered up as I did here. Regardless of the graphic, it’s […]

Peanut Butter Granola

I finally tried my hand at granola. Granted, it may be the easiest recipe out there, but it’s a good starting point, right? A friend of ours gave us some that she had made a few months back and since then I’ve been wanting to give it a shot. Store bought is good, but homemade […]

High Five for Friday

Well this Friday happens to be the last Friday in April, say what?! I swear the month just started a few days ago! Despite being almost May, it sure feels like March again. After starting the week with a beautiful Easter day, I spent the rest of the week shivering because I refuse to turn […]

Wifey: Take 2

You know those t-shirts that become your staples that you reach for time and time again? I’ve had this shirt for a few months now and it’s been on heavy rotation ever since it arrived in the mail. Honestly, I’d take the whole darn collection from ILY Couture. From the tote to the necklace, the […]

Loving Lately: Summer Flats

It’s a wonderful feeling to go sock-less, let my toes breath and show off my pedicure! I don’t know why summer shoes are so much more tempting than winter shoes. Maybe it’s because they are smaller and cheaper than boots and it makes me feel like I can add a few more to my wardrobe, […]

Spring Dressing

Up until this past year I had been living in Hoboken, NJ for nearly 10 years. With an abundance of stores (and Manhattan just across the river), shopping was never an issue. That being the case, I can’t say that Kohl’s was a store I chose to go into all that often. Now that I […]


He is risen! He is risen indeed! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a blessed Easter! We enjoyed a great day with gorgeous weather which was appropriate for the occasion. Our morning started off with a touching church service that kept Jesus and his sacrifice at the forefront of my mind all […]

High Five for Friday

It’s Friday again! Despite the winter weather we had a few days ago, it was a pretty good week. My husband and I had a parent teacher conference with my son’s preschool teacher. She only had great things to say which is basically what we expected. We laughed afterward thinking about how we’re going to […]

Inspiration & Improvision

I’ve always loved reading blogs and my reading has only increased since I’ve begun to blog myself. I’m constantly inspired by other bloggers in all areas from cooking, baking, decorating and of course fashion. I love that I am able to do the same for some of you as well. Not that I’d want you […]
