Will You Be My Boo?

Cate Mezyk - October 20, 2016
Will you be my boo top for Halloween.

If you have kids, or you don’t live under a rock, then you’re probably aware that Halloween is coming up just around the corner. My kids have been talking about what they’re dressing up as for months already, and the big day is now nearly here. Now, if you don’t want to go all out and dress up (sexy jellyfish, anyone?), then we here at …

Wild About You

Tammy Hiveley - December 20, 2013

What are you wild about this holiday season? I’m wild about this dream gown… Elie Saab Fall 2013 Haute Couture Collection I wish I had somewhere to wear it, but I don’t … *sigh*  so I guess I’m reduced to twirling in my dreams tonight.  Could I be more head-over-heels with the use of deep blues this season?  It’s such an easy transition from my …

Tammy Hiveley - December 19, 2013

‘Tis the season for celebrating life, love, family and friends. I truly love the Christmas season in every way.  One thing in particular are the Christmas parties!  I’ve attended some fabulous soirées with good friends and fantastic food.  Don’t you just love to see your friends’ homes dressed up in the holiday spirit?  Here are a few shots on the inside… Why not go the …

Wild About You

Cate Mezyk - November 29, 2013

Now that Thanksgiving has passed us, I’m wild about all the holiday parties on our calendar this December. Want to know how I get my skin party ready? Well, I’m definitely going to fake a tan (learn how here). But before I get do that, I start with what’s underneath. Here are just a couple of items in my beauty arsenal – the ones I …

Give Thanks

Cate Mezyk - November 12, 2013

We’re all about being thankful here at Wild Ruffle (as evidenced by this), so when Thanksgiving rolls around it’s a pretty exciting thing. I was amazed by how many of you showed your support of what we do here by pinning our early fall front porch decor. Thank you, thank you! Hopefully, you’re every bit as excited as I am about our Thanksgiving decor. My …

Wild About You

Cate Mezyk - July 5, 2013

What am I wild about this week? Time spent with family and friends, patriotic toes, children running through sprinklers, cozy blankets in shady corners of the yard, laughter filling the empty spaces in my yard, and tables full of people eating together (with more food than we could ever hope to finish!) and enjoying each other’s company. We have a favorite spot for our fire …

Family Advent

Cate Mezyk - November 29, 2012

This time of year is filled with all kinds of traditions and memory making events with our kids. We make gingerbread houses, we visit the Macy’s display downtown, do the Holiday Dazzle here in Prior Lake… But in the busyness of it all, I want to be certain my kids are really hearing the message of just why we’re celebrating. That’s where The Family Book of …

Stretch

Cate Mezyk - November 27, 2012

This is what I wore on Thanksgiving. And you know what made me really thankful? A loose fitting top, and stretch denim. That food baby happily grew and grew as I munched and munched all day long. Of course, I was also thankful for everything on this list, but stretch denim (and cute floral stretch denim no less!) on a big day of eating, was …

Decking the Halls

Cate Mezyk - November 27, 2012

We may not have any boughs of holly up, but we sure are feeling the fa la la la la around here. Last year I shared some of my favorite holiday decorations we put up each year – we have so many with great memories and meaning attached (as, I’m sure, do you). That’s what I love about decorating for Christmas – the memories that …

Ugly Santa

Cate Mezyk - November 26, 2012

We put up our tree the day after Thanksgiving this year, just like we do every year. As usual, my dad’s treasured ugly Santa ornament got his place of honor up in front. It’s a time treasured classic that will always have a spot on our tree. There’s something about it that just makes me smile. And it reminded me of last year when I …
