2017

I’ve been thinking a lot about resolutions. Am I going to make one this year?  I don’t know. I guess if I had to, it would be to TRY.  The new year is staring down at me and I know that on the other side, my life is going to be turned upside down for a while. A new baby is coming in just over a …

Best Of 2016: Recipes

The BEST OF 2016 series continues! This time, it’s all about the delicious recipes that I totally can’t take credit for, because most of them have been in my family for a generation or two.  (I mean, who are we kidding. This is just an excuse for this pregnant lady to look at photos of food and get to bakin’. Because I’m never not hungry these days.) …

Best of 2016: Looks

I hope you had a merry Christmas! I took a mini blogging break and tried my best to savor the moments of the last Christmas with only one baby girl. It’s tough to live in the moment, isn’t it? My mind kept drifting to next year, when our home will be filled with even more shrieks and laughs and cries… 2017 will be a big …

Hello Fresh Makes Life Easier (+ Tastier)

You guys. I don’t want to brag or anything, but I tried a meal delivery service for the first time and I totally rocked it. Sure, Hello Fresh did all of the hard work, but they made me look pretty damn good.  Normally when it comes to cooking, these days I stick with what I know. When my husband and I first started dating, I tried new …

Home Office Update With The RoomPlace + Pantone

Thank you to The RoomPlace for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions are my own.  The home tour continues! Today I’m welcoming you into my newly decorated home office. Just last week this room was a play room filled with toys and all the toddler shenanigans you can imagine. Now, it’s my little space to escape from the chaos and chatter of life where …

Christmas At Home: Deck The Halls

Come on in! Grab a cup of coffee. Stay awhile. Welcome to Christmas at our home. While I was taking the photos for this post, I realized that I decorate for Christmas the same way I dress. I keep most things neutral, with pops of festive here and there. I love everything and all things Christmas, but I don’t want it to drown out the …

Holiday Gift Guide: Stocking Stuffers

It’s the last holiday gift guide! And with only 13 days until Christmas, I’d say I squeaked it in right under the wire. Phew.  So, let’s talk stocking stuffers, shall we? In our family, it’s always tradition to do presents first, then stockings. It may seem a bit backwards – like starting with the main course and then moving to the appetizers. But just when …

Holiday Gift Guide: For The Little Ones

It’s time for another holiday gift guide! This guide is for the little ones in your life. Because, let’s be honest, they’re really the most fun to shower with gifts. My girl is starting to realize more and more about Christmas and Santa and presents and I’m loving it. She “helps” me wrap presents (seriously, 1 present takes about 45 minutes. at this rate we’ll be …

A Christmas Favorite: Cranberry Orange Bread

Another family favorite from my childhood! My grandma used to make this cranberry orange bread every Christmas, and my mom has carried on the tradition. Now that our little family is under way, it’s my turn. Because it’s just not the holidays without this delicious bread. Lately, I’ve decided that while I love to cook, I enjoy baking even more. Maybe it’s the whole Third Trimester …

Cozy Sweaters + Christmas Trees

Do you guys know if there is some sort of cozy sweater support group? Because I think it’s time. I’m finally admitting that I need help. My closet is overrun with cozy sweaters and pretty soon they’re going to take over the entire house… (No, but really…I couldn’t resist this one. It’s just perfect. It’s not maternity but fits nicely over the bump.)    Our …
