Cate Mezyk - November 20, 2018

As Tammy and I gear up for Small Business Saturday (you’re coming, right?! – check out the Facebook event page here), we’re also busy running around town getting ready for Thanksgiving. There is much to be thankful for, that’s for sure. Thankfully, I’m staying comfy and CUTE in my new Tretorn buffalo plaid shoes. So many of you have asked where I got them, so …

Plans Schmans

Cate Mezyk - September 25, 2018

I’m not typically a planner. In fact, I’m kind of a fly by the seat of my pants, last minute kind of girl. Most of the time, this plays in my favor because truly – life is more interesting when you can be spontaneous. When you go with the flow you stumble upon some really fun adventures. When it doesn’t work well is when you …

Nothing over the top, just new friends getting to know each other better over food and drinks. …

Tammy Hiveley - May 20, 2015

Yesterday I woke up with the sun shining in my face so I should’ve been warm and comforted but I wasn’t. I was freezing. Chilled to the bone for no apparent reason. I just couldn’t get my body temperature up to normal no matter what I did. What’s wrong with me? Hot coffee helped a tiny bit but the giant Okoboji sweatshirt I was swimming …

Just Call Me Rudolph

Tammy Hiveley - January 14, 2015

I’ve started branching out of my comfort zone and wearing things I normally wouldn’t. All because I get bored and this is how I entertain myself. I was loving the layers I put on the other day. Wool shorts (which I’ve had in my closet for YEARS and have never worn) paired with lots of top layers to bundle my perpetually cold body. I felt the look worked. But …

Fringe is in!  And Crowned Crow knows it!
