High Five for Friday

I don’t know if it’s just me, but this 4 day week has totally thrown me off! Thankfully I didn’t miss anything important, but I found myself questioning what day it was multiple times per day! We had a great Memorial Day weekend full of picnics, swimming, a parade, a carnival, and some family time. […]

‘Tis the Season

Oh yes, that would be swimsuit season. I’m sure I wasn’t alone when I broke out my swimsuit this past Memorial Day weekend. It always feels awkward putting it on that first time of the season. I compare everything to how it looked last year and then notice how it’s not quite as bright as […]

Cherry Pie Bars

A few weeks ago I shared a way for you to sneak some health into dessert with these Chickpea Blondies. I’m sorry to report that there aren’t any hidden benefits in these bars per say, but there is a ton of flavor! Everything in moderation, that’s my motto. These bars reminded me of a cherry […]

A Detailed Top

During the warmer months when layering isn’t always a comfortable option, I tend to rely a lot on cute tops to carry my outfit. Whether it’s a bit of embellishment or a fun graphic tee, it’s nice to have a slight element of interest going on. Sometimes a light scarf over a solid tee can […]

High Five for Friday

Happy Friday, friends! I’m assuming many of you are already enjoying your long weekend. Interesting fact: Boalsburg (the town next door to us) claims to be the birthplace of Memorial Day. Although the long weekend is appreciated (well, for some of you, that doesn’t exactly apply to me!), we also remember those who have fallen […]

Just Another Day…

I enjoyed the irony in wearing this sweatshirt on a particularly rainy day this week. Paradise or not, it was the perfect layer that I needed to remain comfortable during the afternoon. I picked this up at Old Navy a few weeks ago and I’ve probably thrown it on half a dozen times already. It’s […]

Crustless Quiche

Breakfast can be one of my favorite meals of the day. I say that it can be because many weekday mornings I grab an english muffin or, if I’m lucky, make a quick smoothie. What I’d do for a leisurely cup of coffee, an egg sandwich and peace and quiet while I read up on […]

More Chambray Please

It’s probably fair to say that I have mentioned both chambray and TJMaxx more than a handful of times on this blog. I hope chambray decides to stay around for a while because I just adore it. And as TJMaxx always does, it works it’s wonders giving me exactly what I didn’t know I wanted […]

Loving Lately: A little fashion

Happy Monday, all! I’m happy to see this weekend end. First of all because we decided to jump in and spring clean. The after effect is great but the process is just not what I call fun. Especially when you have two little ones tearing it up right behind you, ha! And second, on a […]

High Five for Friday

It’s hitting me that summer is just around the corner. There are three weeks of school left, a week until Memorial Day weekend and temperatures have been (off and on) hot and humid. I’ve been busy signing my son up for camps, lessons and classes as we prepare to enter our last summer before my […]
