Red, White and Blue

Happy Memorial Day everyone and a huge thank you to all that serve and have served for our country!! I’m actually starting today off running a 5K with a few friends in our nearby town of Boalsburg, PA which claims to be the birthplace of Memorial Day. Pretty cool isn’t it? And if you follow […]

Striped Tank

Well it’s officially hot outside and I’m already digging through my clothes pulling out everything that’s cool and comfortable. I spend my day with a 1 and 4 year old so those two criteria are a must! I recently ordered this tank from Nordstrom after I fell for this top (that I wear constantly) and […]

Little Swimmers

We finally have some gorgeous weather upon us so my mind is quickly heading towards the pool! Last year I had a newborn so the pool wasn’t always an option for us. But if the bath is any indicator as to how my littlest lady enjoys the water, I think we’re in for some fun […]

Peasant Blouse

Boy did this past weekend fly! We attended my SIL’s baby shower on Saturday, celebrated my husband’s birthday yesterday and then today we move on to Madelyn’s 4th birthday! May is such a crazy month for us (as you can tell) but also so much fun! Despite all of the festivities, it rained nearly 100% […]

Summer Tanks

As a follow-up to Wednesday’s post, I wanted to share some adorable tanks that will not only make getting dressed simple, but will make a statement as well. Florals, bows, gingham with fringe, eyelet hems and sweet ruffles are all details that will have people asking where you found your top ;) I’d happily throw […]

Crochet Top

Finding a cute tank brings such a smile to my face because it makes for such an easy outfit! And as I think a few short weeks ahead to summer break while I have all three kiddos home, my time to sit and put an outfit together is going to be drastically reduced. So having […]


To those of you with children, you know the importance of having a dedicated landing space for all their many, many belongings. Whether it’s an area in your garage, an entryway closet, a part of your laundry room or a mudroom, containing the stuff is crucial. After years of living in condos and apartments we […]

Ruffle Cami

A fun, laid back outfit today to take you right into the weekend! I love finding new tops to pair with these flared jeans and this sweet ruffled cami worked perfectly. All I’m missing is a little self-tanner to tone down the brightness ;) Details: SheIn top c/o / LOFT jacket (similar here and here) […]

Fit-and-Flare Shirt Dress

My love for dresses this season continues…I ran into this one at TJMaxx (but I have a bunch of similar styles for you below) and couldn’t pass it up. I ended up wearing it this past weekend for my daughter’s baby dedication and birthday party. The fit and flare style is so fun to wear […]

First Birthday / Banana Baby Cake

I swear I was just in the hospital after giving birth to my sweet baby girl and yet today she is officially one year old! Is it too cliche to say time flies? Because it certainly is! Amongst the Mother’s Day celebrations yesterday, we also had Audrey dedicated at our church and celebrated her first birthday…it […]
