High Five for Friday

Hello Friday! We had a fairly uneventful week around here, which can actually be a good thing. I’ve been having a few restless nights which I don’t exactly welcome, but that’s just all a part of this pregnancy game. Or should I say a warm up for what’s to come? Time is certainly flying by […]

Winter Florals

You are likely well aware of my love for pastels, but add in florals and I’m more than sold. I love this sweater’s soft contrast to the harsh winter weather, while remaining warm and cozy at the same time. Although some of that warmth may have something to do with my body serving as an […]

Winter Getaway

So does anyone happen to be planning¬†a tropical getaway within the next few months? Actually, no, don’t tell me, I’ll be extremely jealous. We’ve done winter getaways before and they are amazing. You come back feeling refreshed with a nice tan to carry you through the last bitter months of winter. It’s a genius idea […]

Side Dish: Baked Broccoli Cheese Rice

I love when I am able to recreate foods that bring me back to childhood. Rice-a-roni was a favorite side dish of mine while growing up. Actually it still is, but as we are always making efforts to cook with less processed and more fresh foods, I’m happy when I come across knock-off recipe’s that […]

It’s a…

…girl!! It looks like the girls are officially going to take over our household. In numbers at least ;) I wasn’t feeling strongly that it was one or the other, but when the technician gave us the news, I quickly realized I was totally expecting to hear ‘boy’. A wave of emotion hit me as […]

High Five for Friday

Happy Friday, all! This week has sure been an adjustment for us. We had all gotten quite adjusted to sleeping in and taking advantage of Christmas break, but I think we’re finally getting back into the swing of things! I had a check-up this week and the baby looks to be right on track measuring […]

Personal Style

This look was obviously shot earlier as I wouldn’t dare step out of the house without a puffy coat, hat and mittens in this well-below freezing weather! Goodness it’s cold out there! I picked up this sweatshirt and scarf from Land’s End when I was hitting some Christmas sales. I also posted a sweater I […]

Do You Know Your Season?

A new year brings a fresh new start for many people.¬†Many work on resolutions, others set goals they then strive to achieve. I often find myself giving our home a little refreshing early on in the year. With Santa and our families always being overly generous during the holidays, the aftermath can feel a bit […]

Raspberry Thumbprints

Not only am I continuing to mourn the disappearance of our Christmas tree and decorations, but I’m also missing the piles of cookies that were abundant over the past few weeks! Let’s face that it’s likely to be cold, maybe even frigid, for the next few months. With the cold comes hot tea and cocoa, […]

Sweater Coat

Have you guys been doing any after Christmas shopping? I didn’t do much, but I did grab a few things. This sweater jacket for one, which I’m glad I threw in my cart immediately because it’s already sold out! Don’t worry, I’ve gathered a number of others below that are still in stock (and on […]
