Thanks for the invite, but no.

Thanks for the girls night invite, as fun as it sounds, I’m busy… doing nothing. There is an article circulating online right now that has nothing to do with a Kardashian making a drastic change to their hair, or Anna Hathaway returning her room service 4 times, and guess what, it’s better than both of those articles combined! The article is titled 6 reasons why my husband and I probably won’t make it to your event and seriously It has me feeling better and better about all my declined rsvp’s each time I read it. After that baby arrives and you’re officially tagged with the motherhood title, so much changes. Other than […]

DIY: Teapot Vase

Dining Room Chandelier via Urban Barn I wouldn’t want, not even for a second, for you to think I’m organized enough in my life to execute a DIY like this with having to go out shopping.  The tea pot and the idea was about all of the items I had in the moment, that and a can of gold spray paint that I inherited in a swag-bag the night prior; everything else was sourced out of home. SIDE RANT>> Just for a moment, can we talk about the bugger who made wearing your pajamas in public is a faux-pas? I mean maybe I don’t know all the rules, but did I […]

DIY: Little Tikes Home Makeover

This project has been a long time coming, literally. Thanks to date stamps I can tell you that this makeover has taken us 13 months to complete. Started last July with a good scrub down cleaning, and storing safely away from everything dirt just before the change in weather. We had good intentions to get it done last Summer but so much got in the way we had to wait until this year to complete this little project for little Miss Sofia Marie. It’s funny how it happened actually, no real plans were made to get it done last week but we had a few hours sans-child (thanks […]

DIY: Backyard Movie Night

If you build it, they will come! Oh, we built it! And they did come! What an epic night we had over the weekend. Had some of our favorite people over in our backyard, far past everyone’s bedtime and we curled up with blankets and pillows watching a movie in the great outdoors. It’s been one of my “must do” things for the Summer over the past 2 years now and it was even more magical that I ever imagined it would be. Last year we felt it was just a tad too early to be keeping Sofia up that late, but this year we thought she could handle it, […]

FASHION: Versatility with Hudson’s Bay

When I get approached to style an outfit, I get excited. But when I’m asked to style a few outfits for a store I shop at faithfully, I get all sorts’ of giddy. Hudson’s Bay asked me to style a few pieces from their INC International Concepts line showing off its versatility; obviously I agreed. Not only do I love Hudson’s Bay and their many clothing lines, but versatility is what I look for in every piece of clothing that enters my wardrobe. My closet is by no means a walk-in my friends, each piece must be chosen carefully and strategically. Let me tell you about a totally inappropriate way […]

RECIPE: Double Trouble Chocolate Chip Cookies

I’m not one for drama, but when it comes to my sweets, chocolate, and late night snacks I’ve been known to cry tears of happiness over success in the kitchen. My family has had to make a swift change in our everyday eats due to some health issues for both the man and I. We’ve since adopted the ways of a Paleo’er if you will, and have been doing as well as we can; I however am having a hard time feeling any sorta’ success in the ways of baking. Almond Flour, I got it, Coconut Flour, got it, Tapioca Flour and Arrowroot Starch, the pantry is stocked, […]
