If you guys have been following my home decor adventures, you know there is very little that makes me happier than a well-priced cloche or perfect throw pillow. That's why, when I saw this round brass mirror at Target, I knew I had to have it. And then there's the issue of wanting to stay married. I had been spending so much on decorating our . . .
In case you guys missed one of my thousands of #ProudDogMom IG posts, Mike and I adopted our pup, Millie, in October! We went back and forth for the longest time, knowing we wanted a dog while being slightly apprehensive about our ability to properly care for one. We didn’t take the commitment lightly – especially with so many pet parents . . .
How was everyone's weekend!? Mike has been working a ton (it's tax season), so Millie and I are spending a lot of Saturdays just the two of us. The weekdays are so crazy that I've been enjoying taking ONE day during the week to do nothing (I should clarify that NOTHING usually entails grocery shopping, going to the dog park, cleaning the bathrooms, . . .
What are your favorite spring trends this year? I have to say, I'm loving all of the camo and shades of olive. I found the softest Utility Jacket - it feels like pajamas! So excited to share it with you today. Can you guys believe Mother's Day is right around the corner? We're seriously two months away. How is already March?? Weren't we just . . .
When did you guys realize that you had become an adult? Was it the moment that the bills were suddenly addressed to you instead of your parents? Or was it when you started to get excited about a new throw pillows? Or when a fully stocked fridge and clean laundry made you feel like you could conquer anything? For me, it was all of the above, . . .
Happy Monday, bloggerverse! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I took Saturday and did absolutely. nothing. NOTHING. I laid on my couch and had my own Friends marathon with Millie sleeping on top of me for most of it. I'm not great at sitting still, but I felt like I needed it, and I was right. It was perfect. I think what workaholics like . . .
You guys - spring is so close, I can almost taste it. Admittedly, January-May are my least favorite months of the year, but there is something undeniably hopeful about spring. I have a vivid memory of being a sophomore in high school. It was spring in the suburbs of Illinois, and Mike and I weren't dating, but we were texting non-stop. To prepare . . .
One of my new year's resolutions was to be way more intentional - and that goal extended to skincare. I am notoriously horrible at taking care of my skin. It's part laziness and part luckiness. My grandma and mom have amazing skin, and for better or worse, I take it for granted. But, I know I need to be more intentional to keep those genes . . .
It warmed up in SoCal for a solid three days, and today was chilly again. I shouldn't complain. If I were back home in Chicago, it would likely be in the 30's and 40's, so, it's all about perspective, right? It is so easy to lose perspective. We get so wrapped up in ourselves and all of the microscopic details of our life that we forget to . . .
We have all been there. The co-worker. The neighbor. The distant cousin who will be in town for her birthday. People for whom you have to buy a gift but don't TRULY know their interests - and let's be honest: how many bath and body sets does any single person REALLY need?! I know the feeling. Gift-giving can be super tedious when you and the . . .
