Date Night Ensemble

My husband and I do our best to get out for a date as often as we can (you can read that as hopefully once/month!) and when we do it’s nice to have some easy outfits to turn to. I love the ease of this bright printed top. It’s light and airy so it’ll be […]

Chickpea Blondies

When it comes to dessert, I typically go all in. If you’re going to indulge, I say just do it (but don’t over do it!). However, I’m also always looking for new ways to sneak in healthy foods for my children. Overall they eat pretty well, but extra nutrients can never hurt! I came across […]

A Summer Maxi

As you may have seen in yesterday’s post, this was the outfit I wore to church and brunch on Mother’s Day. Throwing on a maxi dress makes getting dressed effortless yet I often find I receive many compliments when wearing them. The most important coming from my husband who complimented me a number of times […]

A Mother’s Day Celebration

What a whirlwind weekend we just had! I honestly don’t know how it’s Monday already. Our weekend was jam packed with family, friends and beautiful weather. If I could have squeezed in just one nap, it probably would have been perfect. But I suppose sleep is over-rated anyway ;) I didn’t have much time to […]

High Five for Friday

It’s funny to think that I started this blog in an attempt to help you, my readers. This week you showed me you’re actually the ones here for me! I can see a huge weight lifted off of my husband’s shoulders simply knowing that it’s all out in the open. Jack has Lyme disease and […]

Shades of Denim

First off, let me start my thanking you all for your total outpouring of love and support yesterday! I’m not joking when I say it felt like a full-time job keeping up with all of your comments, messages and texts….the best full-time job I could ever ask for! From sending your love, prayers, advice and […]

Getting Personal: I Hate Lyme Disease

My husband has Lyme Disease and I hate it. Jack is (and has always been) a driven, motivated and ambitious man. Nothing could stop this guy until Lyme finally took over his body. A horrible disease passed on by ticks, has totally changed our lives. There aren’t many people that are aware of this, in […]

Striped Linen

Linen is one of those fabrics that I have a love/hate relationship with. It’s ideal in the summer for it’s ability to keep one cool, but boy do the wrinkles drive me crazy! I’m just going to have to get over it this summer, because I’m loving the loose, summery feel and look of these […]

Rodan & Fields: A Giveaway for you!

Skincare isn’t always something that I put first and foremost. I have fairly normal skin without very many issues and as long as I cleanse and have some SPF in my moisturizer, I feel like I’m doing alright. It wasn’t until recently that I that I began thinking about the whole anti-aging process. As happy […]

High Five for Friday

Happy Friday, everyone! I’m so excited to finally see May on my calendar. May means that summer is just around the corner which is thrilling. On the down side, it means my baby will turn 2 at the end of the month. And then just around the corner in June my bigger baby will turn […]
