A Little Something for Mama

April 20, 2017


Sometimes mama needs some time for herself and included in that, I think a little TLC is totally fine. A few years ago I had Dysport done on my forehead - which if you aren't aware, it's parallel to Botox - and I went really conservatively then because it was foreign to me. Honestly, I didn't want people to know I had it done or could tell. I also had it done to help with my migraines and at the time, it really did help them!

Emery's Big Girl Room

April 18, 2017


I want this room to be my room. Is that allowed to be said? It turned out to beautiful and whimsy but with the rustic touches I was dreaming of. I shared some inspiration here and was so excited as pieces arrived but it's blown me away being all together and complete.

Easter Recap

April 17, 2017


Easter is such a special celebration in our household and we just soak it up, celebrating our risen King! We hosted last year in our previous home and we were lucky enough to get both my family and Andrew's family together this year and host again! We absolutely love entertaining and having people over so it's just something I'll always cherish and be grateful for the opportunity doing so.

We opted not to do Easter baskets this year but the kids were able to pick out cupcakes from Sprinkles for our lunch/dinner and Drake was pumped! He gave up chocolate for lent so having a double chocolate cupcake was like heaven. We filled the house with some pretty spring flowers, decorations from the Target $1 bins and used our favorite place mats and napkins from Minted again. 

It was just so stinkin' darling watching Emery dying eggs and doing the egg hunt. She had such a zest for the day and I was all sorts of glowing watching her and Drake together. We did snag one good picture of the kids and one... not so great "real life" picture. Had to share! ;)






I hope you all had a great Easter weekend!

A Few Favorites

March 31, 2017


I was babbling away on instastories today about a few of my favorite things lately so I wanted to pop in and share them for you here! I've been in the phase of life where I'm finding key things that I love and consistently use and continue to purchase as they run out or constantly wear certain pieces I've found to be staples so maybe these items are those ticket things for you, too.

Microblading Touch Up


Its' been about 7 weeks since my initial experience and application of my eyebrows- microblading! I saw Amanda from High Brow and she worked wonders a couple months back. They scabbed, peeled and healed themselves over time so I went back for my touch up on Wednesday to ensure they're good and filled for the next couple years while they last.
