We’ve lived here for 5 years, and since it’s a rental, we’ve very rarely ever upgraded anything. I save all those brilliant ideas for my Pinterest board for when we finally break down and buy something. But through the years we have updated a few things out of necessity and aesthetic reasons.Continue Reading
This Friday Abbey and I have an appointment at a local preschool to come check it out and take a tour. I am equal parts excited for her (and who are we kidding, me too!) and sad that my baby is growing up. The first day of school is a big deal and I’m trying to mentally prepare myself for it.Continue Reading
A few weeks ago my cousin and his girlfriend had a baby shower and I was tasked with the honor of making them cupcakes! All I was told was “Pink and Teal with Gold Stars”, the rest was up to me. Max is my baby cousin and I was 9 when he was born, so I knew that I had to make sure these cupcakes were not only yummy, but really fun and special too. I have a huge family and the sheer fact that they asked for my help was an honor. I knew I couldn’t disappoint!Continue Reading

Around here, Sunday morning is a big deal. We love to sleep in (well except the little one) and then lazily make our way to the kitchen to make breakfast.

An simple DIY Brunch at home is totally do able and a lot easier than you think. Whether you’re just feeding the family, or entertaining friends, check out how we do brunch around here and our tips to make it special!Continue Reading
It seems like both weddings and baby showers come in waves. Some years there are none on the calendar, while other years there seems to be one every month and it can really start to ad up, especially if you’re the hostess. Whether you are a friend, family member, or coworker, you may know someone who is expecting and want to throw a baby shower in their honor.Continue Reading
This post is brought to you by Tulip and Blueprint Social. The opinions are my own.
If you’ve been around with me long enough, you know that;
A. I DIY anything I don’t want to pay full price for and,
2. I love a bit of snark and humor.
So I wanted to create something that sort of embodied those things into one pretty cool thing – a Tie Dye Color Melt Workout Tank! That’s right – I work out (sometimes) and I like to look totally amazing and awesome when I do, because is there any other way to be?
I participated in a In-Home Party Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Weight Watchers Sweet Baked Goods. I received product samples to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
I am addicted to sugar. There, I said it. I love sweets! Cakes, pies, brownies, ice cream, anything I can get my hands on. I love to live by the motto “Life is short, eat dessert first.”. There is ALWAYS room for dessert. Always. Sadly, it has come to my attention that maybe sweets aren’t the best thing for you and should be eaten in moderation (what’s “moderation”!?) and because of that fact I have to make better choices when it comes to indulgence. So when Weight Watchers Sweet Baked Goods asked me if I wanted to try their BRAND NEW Salted Caramel Brownie Bliss bites and have a tasting party to see if my friends could tell the difference, I was intrigued and said yes!Continue Reading
I have bags and bags of baby clothes in my garage that I literally cannot part with. We get asked all the time if we’re done having kids, and the answer is mostly “Yes”, but I just can’t let go of all the baby clothes my daughter wore. I’ve let a lot of it go to friends and family with kids, but I’ve got a few favorites that I just emotionally part with.Continue Reading
National Mom’s Night Out was May 7th – YES! It’s really a thing! Why didn’t you know about it sooner?! Even if you missed it this year, there is never a bad time to host your own little Mom’s Night Out Party! We, as moms, are often on the go, helping everyone else, doing so much for so many others that we forget to stop and enjoy ourselves, guilt free! That’s why creating a night to just hang out with the gals is so fun and so important!Continue Reading
Y’all know my sister had a baby 2 months ago – my sweet little moose of a nephew, Miles Robert. He’s just the cutest little thing ever. I love doing things for my first time mommy sister – every time we get together, I shower her with gifts! Lucky girl, huh?
