    CHANGE OF PLANS

    So after all that huffing and puffing and worrying and wonder and investing in the idea of a big move… We’ve had a change of plans. The military has decided that Southern California suits our family and we will be sticking around for 2 more years. We’re not moving… wait what? We’ve been told that we were moving twice and each time, I wrapped my head and heart fully into it, only to be totally let down… Rookie mistake,…

      The older I get, the more I realize how important my smile is to me. It’s not only one of the first impressions people get of me but it’s also one of my attributes that I love to show off. A simple smile can truly change someone’s day. It can relay love; it can show happiness, pride, and so many…

        FRIDAY EDIT | 3.15

        Happy Friday!  Thanks to the dreaded daylight savings, this week has dragged on and on… I’m excited about it staying lighter in the evening but could definitely do without the loss of an hour of sleep! We had a pretty tame week and didn’t really do a whole lot which was a welcomed change of pace. The most exciting part of my week was meeting with our interior designer to go over details for our bathroom remodel… I seriously…

          CLUTCH CRUSH

          I’ve been crushing on clutches in a major way lately. Maybe it’s my need to feel stylish and chic again and less like a bag lady with my giant diaper bag. As a mom, the most impractical bag to carry is a clutch, especially one with no straps! Holding something other than a tiny little hand seems so foreign but I absolutely love the times that I can get a way with only taking the few items I truly…

            A LETTER TO MY SON

            A few months ago, we had Easton evaluated because he was having some developmental delays and behavioral issues that concerned us. He was having a really hard time communicating with his words about things that were really bothering him and it was beginning to affect his everyday life. We made an appointment and took him in, with hopes the doctor would say that these were all normal behaviors but instead we were hit with a diagnosis that we weren’t…

              SPRING STYLE | SHOPBOP SALE

              It’s that time of year again… one of my favorite sales is live and there are so many good grabs for your spring style! I love the ShopBop sale even more than the Nordstrom sales and most all other stores! I like to stock up on basics and a few fun pieces for the upcoming seasons. I rounded out some of my favorite spring pieces from things I currently own and things I’m currently coveting and am sharing with…

                3 TIPS TO COMBAT PET ODOR WITH FEBREZE

                Tex has been apart of our family now for ten whole years. I still can’t believe it. He’s a lovable dude with a penchant for snapping at the mailman’s heels. He has a thing for the pizza guy and if you sport a brown polo and drive a big brown box truck, you may not be his favorite person. While he sounds mean, he’s truly one of the most loving pups. Tex has this thing snuggling up on the…
