PLAID STATEMENT COAT 3-WAYS

I’m one of those people that swoons over statement coats but then walks away convinced I won’t know how to wear it. Or that I won’t  wear it often enough. About a month ago however, I spotted a buffalo check coat at old navy and decided to finally give it a try. To my surprise, I’ve worn it […]

OVERSIZED HANDWARMER DIY

So excited to bring back an old favorite today, homemade hand warmers, with a new design and bigger size. Just in time for Holiday gifting and the cold winter weather that has kicked in around here! The hand warmers pictured are available in my Spoonflower shop as a cut and sew fabric pattern (perfect project for […]

PRINTABLE ADDRESS TEMPLATE + THE KIDS LATELY

Soooooo, I have some Christmas goodies for you this week but figured I would kick things off with a useful printable, if you haven’t sent your christmas cards out yet!? Worked on ours both nights over the weekend and I’m still not done! Mostly because our address book needs lots of updating, but the template really helped keep […]

OH CHRISTMAS TREE + OUR SIMPLE HOLIDAY BUCKET LIST

I cannot believe it, but happy DECEMBER! We kicked off the month yesterday by starting our service advent calendar, stacking up a pile of books to donate, and celebrating our elf, Sven the loving elf’s, arrival. I just know this month is going to flyby — it always does. Since our un-fancy fall bucket list worked so well, […]

FAVORITE STOCKING STUFFERS FOR THE KIDS

Come Christmas morning, our stockings are mostly stuffed with gum, chapstick, socks, and starbucks gift cards, but I always love including a few special surprises too. Since we’re doing the 4-Gifts again this year it also leaves a little wiggle room in the stocking budget. Here are a few potential stocking stuffers (and a couple […]

THANKFUL FOR THANKSGIVING

Welp, we spent Thanksgiving bunked at our family cabin, gobbled till we wobbled (and not just on Turkey Day), drove 8 hours to see our college team lose the apple cup (but still had fun), walked the festive streets of Leavenworth, mediated an unnerving amount of sibling squabbles, and made lots of new memories. Thanksgiving, for no particular […]

MINI CHICKEN (OR TURKEY) POT PIES

I’m not a huge fan of stew-like dinners you guys, but the chicken pot pies we made last night were so tasty almost everyone went back for seconds. Since the meat in this dish can easily be substituted and we’ll all be needing ways to use up leftover turkey from Thanksgiving, I thought I would share!  MINI […]

LOVE DOES, ADVENT ACTIVITIES + PRINTABLE

There is a mile long Thanksgiving to-do list sitting next to my keyboard as I type this, but there is so much that happens between Turkey day and Chistmas, it’s hard not to jump ahead a little. One of my favorite upcoming traditions is our daily advent calendar (25% off at Land of Nod) and this […]

GIVEAWAY WITH STACY JACOBSEN PHOTOGRAPHY

If you’ve been a blog reader for even a little while, you’ve probably heard me brag about my beautiful friend, Stacy Jacobsen, and her killer photography skills. I’m not exaggerating when I say, she’s amazing at what she does and is so effortless and chill to work with, yet manages to capture the playfulness of the moment and […]
