I could be embarrassed with how long it has taken me to write a blog post since my last article went up, but honestly, it's for good reason. It's no secret that I'm a working Mama. I recently accepted a very generous promotion, but with a promotion comes more responsibility. Sometimes this means I work … Continue reading Fall is Upon Us (or Arrived, if You’re in my House)
Just like the beloved Daniel Tiger sings, "There are lots and lots of feelings, And we can feel them all." In this case, those feelings have most recently been about car buying. Feelings like, EXCITED: I get to get a new car! I cannot wait to get a new car! STRESSED: Which one should I pick? … Continue reading Shiny, Clean Car: My Biggest Challenge Yet
When I started this blog, we had just bought our first home. We were renovating where we could (read: we are terrible handy folks so our DIY projects were primarily painting projects). Since that time, I had another baby, I started/closed my own tee shop and fell back in love with working on my personal … Continue reading Envisioning my Dream Home: Wishlisting
I am an extremely sentimental person. For as long as I can remember, I would hold onto little notes my Mom would put in my lunch, birthday cards from family members, drawings friends made me, and so on and so on. Eventually, this transitioned into clothes that I was gifted (but maybe would wear once … Continue reading Spring Cleaning 2018: The Purge

This weekend, I got a hair up my bum (erm) and decided it was time to take that kitchen … Continue reading Hello, White!
On the heels of yesterday's post about Big Girl Evvie, I have to share with you a genius product that I've picked up for myself and might encourage all of my fellow infant and toddler moms (and even pet moms) to consider. Let me paint an everyday Longo Zoo scenario for you: While removing Evvie from the … Continue reading Latchy Catchy: Why Didn’t I Think of That?
I'm a planner. I plan everything. I plan my birthday. I plan C.D.'s birthday. I plan Evvie's birthday. I plan my family get-togethers, big or small. I plan gifts for folks months in advance. I (selfishly) send out my Christmas Wish List before my own birthday in October. So naturally... with nesting on my mind... … Continue reading Evvie’s Going Big: Bigger Room at Least
Whoever said DIY would be easy was obviously joking or being very, very sarcastic. But oh... my... word! The pride that comes with something hand made after spending hours working through it is worth every cramp and muscle knot. And what's better? Being able to offer your family and friends something custom for their very … Continue reading Evvie+Me: Farmhouse Inspired Decor
One of my goals for 2017 is to put actions to my words. I've been saying I want to tackle more DIY projects and so far I'm off to a good start. Check out some of my recent projects completed this month and tips for doing it yourself!
