Monthly Archives for April 2015

Striped Maxi

Well I’m a few days short of reaching full-term in this pregnancy and all I can say is that I am feeling very pregnant. The kicks and jabs that used to bring a smile to my face now catch me off guard as they send jolts through my body. Only a handful of shirts continue […]

Banana Nutella Dessert

It must be the beautiful spring weather that has me in the mood to not only change up my wardrobe but also to start incorporating more fresh and lighter foods. Although this dessert isn’t necessarily ‘lighter’ in fat or calories (unless you’re counting the fact that I used reduced fat Oreos and cream cheese?), it’s […]

Loving Lately: Chambray

No matter how many chambray pieces I end up having in my closet, there always seem to be more on my radar. I love the versatility of it. The way it can be dressed up or down and paired with such an array of colors, prints and fabrics. For example, you could just as easily […]


Grey is always a go-to neutral for me. I think I’m drawn to the softness of it. When I use grey during the spring months, I simply add brighter layers and accessories to enhance my look. Since I’m turning daily to the staple pieces of clothing that still fit over my belly, I’m pretty dependent […]

High Five for Friday

Happy Friday! This week felt busy yet low-key at the same time. Maybe that’s because my normal routine seems to be wearing on me. Fatigue is certainly setting in and I find myself eager for this little girl to arrive. And once she does I know I’ll be sleep deprived wishing she was still in […]

Go-to Jacket

For those of you that follow along regularly and as given by yesterday’s post, you’ve come to know that scarves are one of my favorite accessories. It’s no surprise that I turned to this crisp white one to complete this everyday outfit. In addition to scarves, I also consider this lightweight anorak jacket a spring/fall […]

Loving Lately: Scarves

It would make more sense for me to title this post ‘Loving Always: Scarves’, because I’m not sure I’ll ever be over them or have a collection that feels complete no matter how large it becomes. Short and sweet today, I’m sharing a few favorites that have caught my eye. Note how I’ve thrown in […]

Blueberry Lemon Bundt Cake

I’ve had this recipe on my radar for a while now. I finally got around to making it for a Staff Appreciation lunch at my son’s school a few week’s ago and I barely got a bite of it before it had disappeared! It always makes me nervous serving something before I get a chance […]

Easter Style

I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful Easter with your families yesterday. My kids seemed to be on overdrive from 6:50am on and my husband and I continue to find candy wrappers laying randomly around the house! We started off the day with a wonderful sermon at church, followed by a trip to the Arboretum […]

High Five for Friday

Happy Friday! Well, we have made it into April, I managed to avoid being the brunt of any April Fool’s jokes, and spring is fighting to get here! I’m battling a sore throat at the moment but am banking on it dissipating by this weekend so that I can enjoy Easter weekend with our family. […]
