On Saying Goodbye to the Magic

This past Sunday was one of my favorite Easters to date. We kept it low-key, played our brains out, ate a wonderful meal, enjoyed the company of family and felt all the magic that comes with Easter while also trying to remember the true reason we celebrate. Our kiddos woke up excited to see what […]

My Top 5 Beauty Faves

On most days, my self-routine doesn’t include many steps or products.

THE Statement Piece of Our Home- By Morgan’s Wood

A few months back I saw a chandelier online and I fell in love. But, I definitely didn’t fall in love with the price tag. In fact, it made me feel a little ill because I liked it so much. Don’t you hate it when that happens!? I decided not to let that stop me, […]

Pondering thoughts about how their children appear to be angels. How their marriages look flawless. How their upbringing must have been unforgettable. How they must eat healthy, home-cooked meals nightly. […]

My Life-changing Experience Shopping at Walmart

Ten years ago, grocery shopping looked pretty simple. I’d peruse the aisles at my leisure without much of  a list in-hand. In fact, what did I even eat in college? Did I cook meals? Or was it a lot of eating out? I don’t even know what I ate. Anyway, my grocery shopping days were […]

Baby Franklin Turns Twelve Months!

My baby turned one this week!       ONE! (Sniff.) And you know what those jerks at Babycenter.com did? They changed my baby updates to TODDLER updates. Unacceptable. He is still my baby and will be for years to come. So, as I have done every month for the past year, here is the […]

My Bachelor-esque Surprise Date- Take 2: Ain’t Life Grand

While he wouldn’t like to openly admit it, my husband can be a pretty romantic and thoughtful man. What I thought was just going to be a quick, low-key trip to Las Vegas to spend a day with my guy while he was away for work turned into one of the best, most unforgettable experiences […]
