Hug It Out

Velvet babydoll tee

Yesterday, on our Fox 9 segment, Alix said something how fashion right now makes you want to give out hugs. That maybe peace has a chance, and fashion is where it starts. She was joking of course, but there might be something to it. Because everything in fashion right now is soft, silk, or shiny. The soft textures filling up our shelves and racks do …

Velvet Teddy Bear

Boyfriend jeans and a velvet tee

Remember a few years back, when Ruben Studdard was all over your tv screen? After his American Idol win, he was a big deal. They called him the Velvet Teddy Bear. Well, now you can call me the Velvet Teddy Bear too. I might not have the 6’3″ frame or a Grammy nomination, but I do have this velvet tee. Close enough, right? Velvet is …

All The Feels

Chambray striped dress. crisp. clean. perfectly chic

It’s been a hard morning. I’ve been crying on and off for most of it. All the feels going on over here. Excitement. Nerves. Proud mom. Sadness. Gut wrenching aches. Heart palpitations. You name it – I think I’ve felt it today. A teary-eyed friend, walking my same path, took the words right out of my mouth as we hugged our babies goodbye. “It’s like …

Davis Week 2.0

Mint dress with crochet details

My son has spent a lot of time at the dance studio over the years, watching his sisters practice. And for the very first time since they began, he loves their chosen sport. Not because he suddenly has an appreciation for the art form of dance itself. Nope – it’s because they try out for two long weeks each summer. Those two long weeks have …

Dance It Out

Black and white pouf dress

I’ve loved dance as long as I can remember. When I was 4, I have a clear memory of riding home from gymnastics class and asking my mom if she had signed me up for the next session. Her answer? “I think we’re going to give dance a try.” Little did I know how much it would become a part of my life. That four …

De-Clutter My World

Pinapple T & ripped jeans

Two years ago I moved into a house with vast amounts of cupboards and drawers. Like crazy space. Compared to my old house, I was doubling if not tripling my storage opportunities. I truly never thought it would be possible to fill each spot. And while I actually haven’t used each and every cupboard in every room, I have done a bang up job at …

Nothing. Nada. Zilch. Zero.

Crochet top in natural, easy summer look

I always have the best ideas in the middle of the night. Instead of falling right to sleep like my husband does (the lucky guy is out when his head hits the pillow, though he often wakes up in the middle of the night and can’t get back to bed), I typically lie awake for a few hours, with my mind racing the entire time. …

The Ukulele Summer

Tammy Hiveley - June 26, 2017

Ever since that first day of summer we’ve rushed from one place to the next. Much like jumping fleas (I promise I’ll explain that analogy later), I don’t feel like we’ve been able to chillax one bit. Well maybe a tiny bit, but not much. The only girl that’s been lazy bones is my middle. Due to the unfortunate run-in with a mad soccer ball, …

The First Day of Summer

Gauze lace up tunic

Oh gosh. The kids and I have been waiting all year for this day! SUMMER! Like I was telling you here, I am that mom, through and through. I want my children home. Like all the time. Even when they’re annoying, I want them around. When they are screaming, fighting and acting like jerks – I still want them here. Some days are longer than …

Button down romper

Guess what? We are moving! Yep. Me and my family, we are packing up and moving. We are headed south. And I’m feeling pretty nervous about it. But I know that, in the end, I’ll be happy that it happened. Because good things are coming as a result of this move. I’ve actually been hoping this would happen for awhile now, and I’m excited that …
