High Five for Friday

Happy Friday, all! We’ve been having a blast all week with our family and friends at Rehoboth Beach, DE. The weather could not have been better and we took full advantage of it. It’s hard to narrow down a top five this week, but I’ve certainly enjoyed 1) Being reunited with friends we don’t see […]


There’s something about the french language that is so appealing to me. I’m still kicking myself for not taking it in school. I suppose there’s still time, but for now I’ll work with the few words I know. Leave it to JCrew to create the cutest graphic sweatshirt to ease my way into fall. With […]

Creamy Chicken Quinoa & Broccoli Casserole

I love finding new recipes that have a full list of ingredients that I know my family approves of. And it gets extra points when it can all be made in one dish! Not only is this casserole packed full of nutrients, but its also one that my relatively small family of four almost completely […]

At the Beach

Pardon the lack of a post today. I’m taking the time to enjoy the view and beautiful people shown below. The weather at the shore couldn’t be more perfect, so we’ve been enjoying every minute. I hope to be back with you all tomorrow!


Sorry, I’m in full beach mode and watermelon was the only caption that would come to mind with this outfit! But honestly, I love these shades of pink and green together. Soft, feminine and right up my alley. I posted about this sweater last week as we transition into fall, and it’s even better in […]

High Five for Friday

Happy Friday, all! In a sense this was our last week of summer. We are heading to the shore tomorrow and as soon as we return school begins! So I spent my week prepping for school as well as for the beach. Packing for a week away with children requires much more work than it […]

Cut-offs for Date Night

Somehow the summer has nearly passed and these denim cut-offs that I’ve had for years and wear daily have yet to make it on the blog. Granted, it’s typically cut-offs, a graphic tee and Converse, but for a date night with my handsome husband I had to spice things up a bit. Jack has been […]

Mexican Mac & Cheese

Let me apologize for my lack of recipe sharing recently. I know you’ve been on the edge of your seats waiting for that next perfect dinner idea ;) The whole Redbook ordeal was a little overwhelming last week, but I’ll get things back on track around here! Did anyone else’s ears perk up at the […]

Transitioning with Sales

Tell me I’m not the only one that can get sucked into browsing JCrew sales for more time than I’d like to admit? It’s the darn super sales (sales on sale) that get me. Sale or no sale, I’m winding down on pretty much all warm weather purchases. Thankfully, most stores, JCrew in particular, already […]


No, I’m still not ready for fall to arrive, but since I’ve slowly begun shopping for a few fall pieces and the weather turned a bit chilly (hopefully temporarily), I decided to dip my toe in the fall water. I love these shooties (apparently I’ve been living under a rock not realizing that’s what they […]
