High Five for Friday

Hey guys! I must confess, I did a terrible job documenting this week in photos. My bad. That being the case, I figured I would give you all a quick update on baby-to-be. Here’s what’s happening in her life and mine (and a glimpse of my other two as newborns): 1) This weekend not only […]

My Denim Boyfriend

Carrying on my denim on denim trend from earlier this week, today I went with this new boyfriend shirt that I recently grabbed at Old Navy. The loose fit of boyfriend apparel proves to work well with pregnancy since it gives just enough extra room where it’s needed. Although coats are still necessary (I braved […]

Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies

I don’t think there’s a chocolate + coconut combination that I could pass up. Every time I come across a recipe with these key ingredients I move it immediately to my ‘must try’ list. In addition to coconut flakes, this recipe also substitutes coconut oil for shortening. Coconut oil is becoming more and more of […]

Bags, Bags, Bags!

As much as I enjoy seeing the spring clothing lines being released, I also love browsing new bag possibilities for the season. After a winter full of muted colors, I’m ready for both bold tones and soft, airy pastels to pair with my lighter layers. I’ve gathered a number of bags ranging from handheld clutches […]

Shades of Denim

Mixing denims are one way that I love to pull outfits together. With various (almost countless) shades of blue denim alone, not to mention the array of colored denim to choose from, your options seem endless. It may also seem daunting, but if you stick to shades you know work for you and start with […]

High Five for Friday

Hey all, happy Friday! What a crazy, off week we’ve had around here. Three school delays, one early dismissal and a cancellation today due to¬†freezzzzing cold weather has kept things interesting. And by interesting, I mean that my regular schedule was totally thrown. Oh well, I suppose that’s life. But it sure would be nice […]

The Crazy Cycle

Just curious who else continues to get dressed for the day, looks outside and realizes that this is what will be going on top of your cute ensemble yet again?! Don’t get me wrong, I love the change of seasons here in the northeast, but after three school delays and an early dismissal already this […]

Baked Chicken and Sun-dried Tomato Penne

My love for baked pasta dishes runs deep and I had a feeling that the use¬†of sun-dried tomatoes and a yummy cream sauce would make this one a keeper in my book. When I was pregnant with both Jack and Madelyn I remember having quite an aversion to chicken. Thankfully this hasn’t happened yet with […]

I Love You

For those who celebrated, I hope you enjoyed a sweet Valentine’s Day this past weekend. My husband and I did get to dinner on Friday, but I had spent the night prior with some sort of a stomach bug (it wasn’t pretty), so I wasn’t exactly into the food. Thankfully my ginger-ale and company were […]

What’s better than a SALE?

A clearance SALE! Ladies, Nordstrom is currently having a pretty awesome Clearance Sale and I wanted to share a few of my favorites. If you haven’t checked it out yet, you’ll probably want to ;) Beautiful sweaters, great denim, pretty accessories and great pumps that are pretty darn close to Pantone’s color of the year, […]
