My Spring and Summer clothes are all over the place. Two summers ago I was pregnant and last summer I was nursing and hadn't lost all my baby weight. So what is a girl to do that day before leaving to Arizona and realizing I have nothing to wear that actually fits..... head to the mall. I'm from the Tri-CIties and let me tell you our shopping isn't ideal, but with a vision and a little creativity I was able to put together the perfect travel outfit. More about this outfit and shopping tips below.....
Holy breakfast refresh, I was needing a change in my breakfast routine and SO WAS LEO! I was over my breakfast and Leo had decided to stop eating pretty much all breakfast foods. I partnered up with some awesome organic granola and cereal brands to create some new recipes. The first recipe I tacked with a smoothie bowl. Sadly we don't live in a town where I can get these very easily so I had to take matters into my own and make my own. It was super easy and beyond delicious.
I am not one that is a big tie dye fan or pink but when I saw this bright pink tie dye dress I fell in love. It was bright, fun, and the neckline was something a little different. I'm always looking for new things in my closet and this certainly is something fresh.
When we bought our new house one of the first thing that dated the home was the "yellow" looking cabinets. They were everywhere in the house, don't get me wrong the house was very nicely built but wasn't my style. One of the main rooms I wanted to remodel was the master bathroom. I learned the most remodeling tidbits from this room. No matter what we did I couldn't make it my "dream" master bathroom. But making one big change and a few small ones I was able to transform it into a bathroom I could really love.
I have a fun little post today! One skirt and two looks! I saw this skirt online and fell in love with it because of the embroidery. I'm a sucker for embroidery! I styled it for some PNW spring weather, but when I was headed to Arizona and needed a outfit for a rehearsal dinner I thought of this skirt again. The idea was born of one skirt two ways to wear it. This great skirt works for both Spring and Summer and I will show you how.
I am NOT A BAKER! Let me repeat I AM NOT A BAKER! But the was one of the best thing I ever baked and I actually didn't screw it up! There is no secret I love sweets and this blueberry lemon bread is my perfect kind of treat. This is perfect for spring time and it will wow your guests if you serve this at brunch.
This jacket was made for me! I got it a month ago at Nordstrom with my girlfriend. I passed it by the first day and I couldn't stop thinking about it all that night. The next day we "happened" to be back by Nordstrom and I still wanted this darn jacket. I took that as a sign and I bought it! It is simply fabulous for a million reasons, mostly because I'm over the moon about embroidery.
Ok first remodel post for the blog!! I'm so excited to start sharing with you our remodel, but we haven't finished every room so I'll be slowly sharing each room once I feel like it's finished. I'm dying to show you our new "wine room" next but I'm waiting to get some art for it so I think I'll have to wait a little longer. I'll give you a little backstory on the house then start with the official remodel run down.
I'm all about supporting my friends and thankful some of them sell some pretty fun stuff. Between Cabi, Stella and Dot, LipSense, and Rodan and Fields I feel like I'm all set. I recently went over to a friends to shop the new Cabi line. I fell in love with this cropped pants and tank that can all go together as a jumpsuit.... and I'll tell you why the two piece faux jumpsuits are the BEST.
I like to keep new toys and activities in our bathroom to keep Leo entertained while I do my hair and makeup in the morning. I was looking for a new activity and noticed how much he loved getting things out of my make up drawers and dropping them into the hamper. The idea was born to do an Easter Egg sorting box. It was so quick and easy and we will be using it long after this Easter weekend is over.
