Date Night

Date night is something that Jack and I do our best to prioritize in the midst of our busy lives with three young children. It can be a challenge, but it’s so necessary for us to recharge and have uninterrupted conversation! Once in a while we double date with friends which is all the more […]

Blueberry Banana Baked Oatmeal

Baked oatmeal has become a staple in my diet lately. Since I started following the Faster Way to Fat-loss lifestyle (which you can read more about here), I started focusing more on getting healthy, whole foods into my meal planning. Baked oatmeal quickly became one of my favorite ways to break my fasts and after […]

Now that we’ve turned the corner and entered June, we all know that Father’s Day is right around the corner! I tried to gather some somewhat authentic ideas and turned to one of the best dads around for recommendations, my husband :) I kept it short and concise, yet we managed to cover everything from […]

Outdoor Living

Happy Friday guys! Today is the last day of school for my two eldest and as much as I feel unprepared, I’m looking forward to turning off that 6:25am alarm clock come Monday! Despite the endless amounts of rain we’ve been having lately, I’ve been prepping our outdoors as we look forward to spending many […]

Easy Breezy

Hey guys, happy Wednesday! If it weren’t for Friday being the last day of school for two of my kiddos, I promise I’d have no idea what day of the week it is! Long weekends are great but my week is always thrown afterwards. With school ending however, I feel like I’m running in circles […]

I ran in to Loft yesterday to do a try-on and ended up finding some really […]

Festive Attire You Can Wear All Summer Long

It’d hard to believe that Memorial Day, the unofficial (or is it official?) kick-off to summer is upon us! Pools will be opening, the sun will hopefully be shining and BBQ’ing will be in abundance. I always feel obligated to dress somewhat patriotically for the occasion but I’m never one to be over the top […]

Denim Jumpsuit

Happy Monday, all! We had a great albeit busy weekend and I am looking forward to playing a little catch up today! There always seems to be so much to cram into a weekend, especially during this spring/end of school season. Sports events, recitals, picnics, get-togethers, and all the yard work. I never look forward […]

Insta Looks

Hello Friday! I just sent my son and husband off on a day-long field trip to the Pittsburgh Zoo. I’m typically the chaperoning parent, so they were excited to have a ‘boys day’ together, along with a bus full of 4th graders :) I should probably have a beer cracked open for him when he […]
