5 Things I’m Loving

Brassica Seed Oil

This month needs to slow down. Week 35 (!!!) of this pregnancy popped up way faster than I thought it would but glad that we are still maintaining our sanity! We’ve been doing a lot of self-care as well as nesting, so you might notice a little theme with this week’s round-up of things I’m loving. O N E. A Little Bundle. I came across this online shop recently, and it’s just the sweetest. In short, you can pick and choose items you...

5 Things I Love

O N E. Pillsbury biscuits. Could these suckers be any more useful for family meals? We decided to make donuts out of them this morning and will be using them for the Pillsbury chicken and dumplings recipe. Thanks to Liz for the initial inspiration! But while we were hanging out this morning after the biscuit donuts, my brother texted me with what they made this morning: kolaches. And guess how they did it?? Pillsbury biscuits! Guess I know what we’re...

Enjoying a Girlfriends Thanksgiving

Friendsgiving 2016 Table Setting

The holiday season goes by too fast. Wait. Let me re-phrase. The Thanksgiving holiday goes by too fast. As years go by, October seems to slowly lead right into December holidays, and November’s Thanksgiving sometimes gets less than stellar attention. It bums me out because this holiday really helps kick off the season of thanks … at least in my eyes. In my attempt to continue to hang on and celebrate and give thanks to those around me, I decided to host...

Vacation All I Ever Wanted …

Summertime and the living is easy. Somewhat. Well, it was during vacation. 🙂 We had one single goal for this vacation: relax. I would say we achieved the goal with flying colors. There is something very special about living on lake time. Late mornings turned into late nights. We never rushed or felt like we needed to get something done. It was just really, really good. I encourage a schedule-free vacation for everyone once in a while!...

Homemade Watercolors

diy-watercolors

Our little girl is a lover of making. Not a day goes by where she isn’t coloring a page, making a card or drawing with chalk. She adores color. So, when I noticed a few paint recipes floating around Pinterest, I started doing a little research on what we could do at home. Anything new that we can add to the mix is great. Add in the fact that this recipe is EASY just adds to my motherly joy....

5 Tips to Care For Your {Indoor} Succulents

Besides their adorable appearance, succulents have been called the plants that are perfect for those that have less than stellar reputations for keeping greenery alive. As a plant novice with a toddler that was eager to test out her green thumb, I thought a succulent would be perfect. She picked it out and we named it Phillip. And Phillip lasted only a few weeks. So, a year has passed since our last succulent, and since then, she continues to notice...

The Next Chapter

Regardless if she is single or partnered, with or without children, with one job forever or embarking on her fifth adventure, a woman’s life evolves rapidly, writing chapter after chapter after chapter. And before long, her in-progress memoir compiled an innumerable amount of pages. Lessons learned. Loses and gains. Happiness and tragedies. It’s beautiful. No part of her world would remain unchanged as life moves on. And as one chapter closes, another opens. I’m ready to move to the next chapter...

My Season of Love.

I know it has been quiet around here, but I hope that will change soon. In the meantime, I wanted to pop in and say Happy Fall! Who doesn’t love this time of year? Autumn isn’t just a season in our household. When I think back on the milestones of my tiny family, the dates seem to fall into that lovely three month period. So, not only am I huge fan of this season because I just can’t get enough...

Couples Who Coffee: Our Favorite Lattes + Recipes

We’ve started a little semi-nightly ritual in our house: evening coffee. I know. It’s probably the worst habit to develop. But after we put the little one to bed, bubbs and I like to sit down with a cup, relax and enjoy each other’s company. Because I’m a coffee addict, and my hubs needs the caffeine right now to stay away (night shift grossness), we’ve been playing around with simple syrups and making “lattes”. HINT: Use this trick to make...

At-Home Honey Lavender Latte {No Fancy Equipment Needed!}

There’s a coffee shop in town that makes the best honey lavender lattes. I’m addicted. #NoShame However, because weekends are lazy and let’s be honest, I’m not going to travel too far each weekend to get my latte fix, I needed to come up with a way to make it at home. And I cracked it. So, so happy. When I tasted it, I shouted to bubbs, “This is it!” And so, my coffee-loving friends, I’m passing this on to...
