This shop is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and Sharpie, but all my opinions are my own. #pmedia  #SharpieBTS http://my-disclosur.es/OBsstV I will fully admit to being one of those moms doing a little dance that school is starting soon.  This summer was fun, but it's always challenging to be around your little kids all. the. time.  I feel like I can never think of enough activities and the … [Read more...]

Caramel Apple Cake Recipe

It's apple season!  I have such good memories of apple picking season growing up...eating the crisp, ripe apples, eating the baked goods my mom made, even selling apples outside Cougar Stadium for $0.25 each.  My parents have lots of apple trees so this year I went and picked a bunch and now I get to spend every afternoon baking them into yummy treats. This caramel apple cake recipe is amazing and such a great way to use apples!  I ate some of … [Read more...]

It's finally cool enough to start thinking about fall fashions:  sweaters, cardigans, and scarves.  I've tried to wear them in the past few weeks, but always abandon them shortly after putting them on due to the heat.  But I'm currently wearing a cardigan, jeans, and boots, and the prospect of months more of these types of styles has me tittering. One of my all-time favorite sources for fashion is Polyvore.  This is where I find outfits to put … [Read more...]

This September has been hot and cold, but mostly hot.  I'm excited that October has the prospect of true, cool fall weather, accompanied by one of my favorite things about the fall...boots!  Well, boots and clothes.  But mostly the boots.  I actually wore some fall boots last week to a thing I had and I was just sweltering the entire time...it's just too warm for boots. I probably won't be buying boots this year (whoops, I already bought a … [Read more...]

Fall Mantle

September is fall, right?  Sometimes it's hard to remember when the temperatures are still hot and the trees seem to be taking their sweet time changing colors.  Well I brought it indoors! The entire summer I was feeling kind of BLAH about projects and decorating...I was super burned out.  I knew that I needed to get back into it--to help fuel some blog posts, yes, and also just to get my creative mojo going again.  I wanted to decorate but … [Read more...]
