Where Do The Days Go?

Cate Mezyk - September 21, 2015

The days since school has started for my kids are passing me by in a blur. Each one has been over scheduled, with things to do and places to be from 8 am to 8 pm. I’ve been going at a pace that is unsustainable, and it can only go like this for so long. The truth is, I need to do a better job …

Wild About Sunday Funday

Cate Mezyk - August 21, 2015

If there’s one thing we love, it’s throwing a party. Ok – we also love shopping, and pretty things, and hanging with friends, and all that stuff too. Happily, all of those loves can be combined into one giant ball of Sunday fun THIS Sunday at Prior Lake City Hall (4646 Dakota St SE in downtown Prior Lake) at the Wild Ruffle Pop Up Shop. …

My children have this way of making me feel old. Not necessarily because of the pointed and often brutally honest things they say (like when my son told me my hair was wiry and crazy like a looney old lady – lovely), but more because of the lack of little kid things they do lately. My oldest daughter can now put her hair in a …

Wild About Thursday’s Pop Up Shop!

Tammy Hiveley - May 15, 2015

May has proven to be the fastest month I’ve had in a looong time. Each day seems to disappear quicker than I can get my To Do list written! Slooow down, Father Time! Just slow down enough so that everyone marks their calendars for the next Pop Up Shop ~ Thursday, May 21st 5-9pm on Main Ave. Prior Lake, MN. Where Wild Ruffle hosts more …

Cate Mezyk - May 12, 2015

Ok, so I’m going to admit something a bit embarrassing. I know – it’s totally wrong of me. I’m a mother of 3. A grown up woman. But I just can’t help myself. I love Britney Spears. Seriously – every song. I know that she’s overproduced, and her voice is altered, and I know she’s gone to crazy and back. I know I should be …

Conversation Starter

Cate Mezyk - May 4, 2015

I never seem to have any trouble talking. My kids actually get quite annoyed with me, because if I ever run into someone we know, or I have to run something over to a friend’s house, etc. I talk and talk and can’t stop myself. But sometimes I sit down to write a blog post, and I feel like I have literally run out of …

Mumbo Jumbo

Cate Mezyk - February 17, 2015

Today is one of those days when I’m drawing a blank on just what to share. My mind has been working overtime, because I was asked to contribute entries to a couple of devotionals, and I’ve used up all my brainpower on them. So this post might honestly sound like jibberish to those of you reading it. If you’re new here, my apologies – stick …

Well Worn Friend

Cate Mezyk - February 2, 2015

I shared this a couple weeks ago on our Facebook page, but it was worth another chat here. Let this be a lesson in never say never: these well worn, ripped up, jeans were my first ever pair of skinnies. My mom purchased them for me about a decade ago, when only a few brave souls were daring to don them. They were shiny and …
