In Times Of Trouble

Cate Mezyk - February 9, 2015

Tammy and I recently lost a friend. A sweet woman, who should’ve been in the middle of her life. Who should’ve seen her little boy and her teenage daughter grow up. A woman who should’ve grown old with her adoring husband. I’m telling you this, not because I want sympathy for a loss. But because she was honestly the most positive person I have ever …

Alright, brace yourselves. I’m about to say something controversial. I know a lot of you won’t agree with what I have to say, but please – hear me out. And hear my heart in it for you. I think you should dress to please your significant other. Yep. I know, I know. You’re an independent woman, you don’t live in the 1950s, you don’t need a …

Perfectly Everything

Tammy Hiveley - August 20, 2014

As you know from this post, I’m homeless.  Well… not technically homeless… but kinda!  We sold our house too quickly {good problem to have I suppose}.  But while we wait for our new construction, it leaves my fab family of five without a home base to call our own for a few months.  If you know me, you know that I’m always up for a little …

Well wrinkle my linens!

Tammy Hiveley - June 11, 2014

Summer begs for linen pants.  I love linen pants. Well… Freshly pressed linen pants that is. It turns out that you can’t fake it.  I threw on my linen pants the other day and much to my lazy dismay the legs were wrinkled.  I proceeded to give them an ol’fashioned hard shake and hand pressing.  That’s should work, right?  “Yeah, sure… that worked, good enough for …

Who’s wants a deal? Me! Me!

Tammy Hiveley - April 16, 2014

Cate and I regularly visit this adorable shop called Apricot Lane. Lookie what I grabbed the last time we were in.  They are the perfect addition to my summer wardrobe… the versatile black and white pattern is fab.  Although, I can’t wait to wear them with tan legs.  Sorry for blinding you.  The sandals are cute though, right?!  {really comfy too}  Did you see Cate’s favorites? Kristine …

Lucky Me

Tammy Hiveley - February 19, 2014

Family dynamics are all different.  They come in different sizes, colors and flavors. My family is loud, loving, passionate and loyal with big personalities.  You’d think we were Italian, but no.  More often than not, we’re talking over each other and sharing each other’s food.  It’s taken my husband almost 19 years to understand us, but I think he gets us now.  We love each …

Ice Out

Cate Mezyk - January 20, 2014

Here in Minnesota, we have a term for when the frozen stuff will finally be off our lakes. It’s called ice out, and it doesn’t typically happen until mid-April. Though we can always hope against hope that it’ll happen a little sooner (well, I guess everyone hopes for it except for the plethora of ice fisher people that flood the frozen lakes each winter around …

My Insta-Life

Cate Mezyk - January 21, 2013

I present to you – my past week, as seen through the eyes of my iPhone. A weekend arm party is definitely my kind of shin-dig. I’m down to party any time if it’s an arm party! Otherwise, put me to bed early baby. 😉 We said goodbye to a friend this weekend. Though we only had a week together, we’ll carry the memories for …
