Holiday Gift Guide: For Her

Thanksgiving is right around the corner and we are already living in a winter wonderland, so apparently it’s time to get these Holiday Gift Guides rolling! Since the gift guide ‘for her’ is the easiest for me to tackle, I figured we’d start there. Feel free to use it for those special women in your […]

Our Home: Master Bedroom

Our home is a work in progress. For someone like me, whose taste and style is constantly evolving, I’m learning to embrace the fact that no room in our home will ever be ‘finished’. I’m working on a talk I’m giving to our local MOP’s group and the topic will revolve around ‘Making your House […]

Cozy Chic

I hope you all had a great weekend! Things were pretty laid back here as we watched football and got things done around the house. I did manage to get my Christmas shopping off and running and in the meantime I’ll keep my fingers crossed that my kids don’t change their minds about their requests! […]

We Love LOFT Sale

Happy Friday guys! There’s a great Loft sale underway and I’ve got a lot of great pieces to share with you! Earlier this week I teamed up with my good friend Rebecca from Mommy in Heels over on Instagram to share how the same pieces look on different body shapes and sizes. I saved those […]

Instagram Round-Up

Happy Wednesday! It’s time for a little round-up of some of my everyday outfits from Instagram. It’s so much easier to snap a quick pic than it is to plan out a whole shoot, and I know a lot of you enjoy more of these everyday outfits anyway, so I’m hoping this serves as a […]

Plaid Scarf

Happy Monday guys! I feel like I have so much to adjust to this week. The time change for one and the fact that it’s now November! I hate being a last minute shopper, but I’m also not in the right mindset yet to start tackling Christmas. I’m still acquainting myself with sweater weather, haha. […]

Embroidered Sweatshirt

Happy Friday guys! I hope you had a great Halloween and fun trick-or-treating if you were taking little ones around! We were hit with some rain but that didn’t slow down anyone. If you missed seeing my two little fairy’s and my soccer player (who is basically over dressing up) you can see them on […]

Loungewear Refresh

Happy Wednesday and Happy Halloween! I have two very excited little fairy’s and one 4th grader that doesn’t care about collecting candy one way or the other. I think that may be hitting me harder than the fact that he no longer believes in Santa. What child doesn’t want free candy?? Hopefully he’ll at least […]

Shades of Fall

Fall colors aren’t always the ones that look the best on me, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t do wonders out in nature. I adore seeing all the warm shades brightening up the sky and I block the fact that I’ll be raking them all to the curb within the coming weeks! This top […]

White Out

Hello Friday! We have plans to attend the PSU game tomorrow and then a soccer game on Sunday, so if you’d all help me pray away all the rain that’s in store I’d be very grateful! We’ve had such beautiful weather lately though, so it’s hard to complain. I finally broke out this turtleneck and […]
