5 Things NOT to Say to Your Friend Struggling with Infertility

5 things not to say to your friend struggling with infertility

You might not know it by looking at my family now, but there was a time when I didn’t know if I’d ever be able to have biological children. Our fertility journey started with a bang – you can read about my tubal pregnancy and resulting emergency surgery here. After our scary beginning, and down […]

Take Me Back

Revisiting Italy through a single scarf-5

Do you ever wear items that you got on vacation JUST so you can be transported back to that magical time and place? I do. Like the other day when I woke up in a rut. A gloomy winter’s-never-gonna-leave rut. I needed a pick me up. And after a purple scarf in my closet caught my eye, […]

Master Bedroom Makeover With Just $125!

before the transformation

You guys. I told you yesterday how crazy this weekend was. But seriously – I am sooo glad that I went through with my plan to surprise my husband with a master bedroom makeover. You see – we always hire out our painting work (mostly because my husband is a perfectionist, and he doesn’t want […]

Deep Sigh of Relief

Wide leg denim, laser cut leather sweatwhirt, fringe cross body bag

This weekend was a whirlwind! My husband headed out of town on business on Thursday, and extended his stay until Sunday evening to stay with his uncle. Meanwhile, the kids had more activities schedule during those four days than you can shake a stick at (what does that phrase even mean?!). It seemed that just […]

Wild About Vacation Style

I just got back from vacation (and have seriously been researching cheap flights – without luck – to leave again because it’s so stinking cold here!). Tammy’s headed out in a few weeks to a warm destination. So we both have the tropics on our minds. We thought we’d put together a handy little vacation […]

Kids are So Creative!

Glue Gun Bracelet Craft-7

My 12 year old was over at a friend’s house last weekend. While most of the time I’m arresting her phone and entering it into our family phone-jail, this time was different. I am proud to say she wasn’t glued to her phone… this time, she was glued to a newspaper! What? Yes. Adaline and […]

WIW to the Oscars

WIW to the Oscar Experience 2015 Minneapolis-8

As I mentioned last week {here}, we were invited to the Twin Cities Oscar Experience 2015. It proved to be a fabulous soirée with food, Hollywood fashion and most importantly… giving back to the community! All proceeds are split between non-profits, Twin Cities Film Fest and Aegis Foundation. Cate was unable to attend at the last minute […]

Vacation Rewind

Arizona vacation pics

Someone take me back to Arizona asap. Seriously – it’s so stinking cold here in Minnesota! I love my home state, but when you board a plane in 80 degree weather, and return to -5 degrees, it’s rough going. I know, I know – I’m not going to inspire sympathy from many around here. After […]

Well Rested

sweater scarf, classic cardigan, booties, and tights

I’ve shard in the past my struggles with sleeping. (check out this post – our readers shared TONS of great ideas for getting better sleep at night!) There is nothing like the feeling of being well rested. And if there is any time I’m going to catch up on my zzz’s, it’s while I’m on […]
