Walls Need Love Too

So I’ve been meaning to share this website for a solid 6 months now, haha, but since I rarely do posts about “home goods” it always seems to get pushed back. No longer. Walls need love too goddamnit, so today I’m talkin’ wallpaper! But not your grandma’s wet, gluey, pain in the ass to scrape off wallpaper…..decal wallpaper! It’s so jazzy, so easy to apply, …

Getting Settled

It feels after the fact to write about the move now, because it seems like we moved 6 months ago…in reality, it’s only been about 6 weeks, ha! We’re still getting settled, but the sea of boxes is gone, rooms are pulling together more every day and we’re finally feeling at home. There’s been so much interest in the move/house though, and it’s been such …

Hostess Gifts

It’s party season…don’t forget to take care of your hostesses! No need to blow the bank on hostess gifts, and how much you spend will also vary depending on the type of event, whether you’re also contributing food/alcohol, how close you are to the person, etc. So here are a few suggestions of things that I think make fun hostess gifts and they vary in …

MADE…in the USA

I’m so excited to tell you guys about MADE! MADE is this totally incredible store that my good friend from college, John Frechette, opened in Jackson Hole, WY in 2010 – http://www.madejacksonhole.com/. John is one of the kindest human beings I’ve ever had the luck to meet, and lucky for all of us he’s super artistically inclined! He began making his own beautifully unique belt …

Back to School

It’s officially here – back to school time! This comes with a total swirl of emotions for moms and kids. As always the primary focus is on the kids, but moms have to handle a lot around this time too! So tonight I’m here with some personal thoughts and a Sunday Giveaway – yippeee!! To some moms, back to school means personal freedom or a …

Never Wet Test Run

If you liked my wine opening video, then here’s another good one for you giving Never Wet a test run! The best part about this video was that I received it while at the grocery store early this morning. I was less than thrilled when my middle chose crisp white Vans for back to school shoes. If you know my girls personally, then you know …

Teach Them Young…#LOVEMORE

I’m wearing one of my favorite shirts in this picture. It says “love more,” by one of my favorite brands, Spiritual Gangster. I mean, what greater message is there really!? Who doesn’t want to be loved more? Bullies start young, mean behavior starts young, so let’s teach our kids young – more love, more acceptance, more communication, more eye contact. When my kids come to …

“I Matter Too!”

Like most moms out there, I spend a lot of my energy making sure that my kids are happy – planning fun activities and playtime with friends, buying them treats, biking out front, playing baseball out back, taking them to special dinners, and on and on. Especially with summer here and having them all home full time, I’m determined to make the most of my …

Steal (I mean learn) from the Best

Anyone out there watch Fixer Upper on HGTV…you know with Chip and Joanna? They renovate and restore old houses and transform them into beautiful, functional, updated homes. And Joanna’s taste in decorating is impeccable. Well along with their show and reno business, they have a store in Waco, TX that is filled with goodies that go along with their style of decorating – lots of …

Personal Trainer in the Comfort of Your Own Home

As I mentioned last week, sometimes life happens and we’re not able to make it to the gym when we want to – busy schedules, sick kids, service appointments at the house, etc. Another issue on the rise for moms is the end of school, and the thought of dragging all our kids (some of whom have been in school all year during our gym …
