LITTLE BITES: COPYCAT STARBUCKS BISTRO BOXES

Baseball season is in full swing for my oldest two boys and husband (who coaches). I’ve always had mixed feeling about this time of year. Johan is already gone several nights a week so when you add practices and games into the mix it feels like we’re never all together. Throw in the unpredictable spring […]

5 THINGS + HAPPY ST. PATRICK’S DAY

Last Tuesday we celebrated a break from the constant drizzle and rain with a walk outside and trip to Starbucks for lunch and a treat. So when the weather app on my phone called for sunshine yesterday we did a happy dance and then headed out the door to play at Volunteer Park (a new-to-us […]

ST. PATRICK’S DAY GOODIE BAGS + PRINTABLE

St. Patrick’s Day is Friday and while you won’t find a ton of decorations around our home or corned beef in the crockpot, you can definitely count on us eating and wearing green or rainbows, dishing out pinches, and indulging in a yummy shamrock shake. This year Tilly also wanted to handout goodie bags to her school friends. […]

CREAMY ROTISSERIE CHICKEN + CORN CHOWDER RECIPE + A MEAL PLAN

OMGee it was a good weekend, friends. Super low-key and just what we needed. Nothing but a couple baseball practices, church, a revolving door of kids and sleepovers (coming and going), laundry catch-up, and some car shopping. I also managed to make a meal plan and convince Ozzie to turn his culinary class assignment into our […]

5 THINGS: FAVORITE LIP STICK SHADES FOR SPRING

You guys! It’s Friday and I’m super excited to share my current rotation of lipstick shades with ya, yet slightly embarrassed of the montage of selfies above (and below). Unfortunately I couldn’t think of a more practical way of showing different lip colors, so lets just pretend that making silly faces in front of the camera is a […]

A DAY IN THE LIFE (WINTER EDITION)

Having lots of kids at different ages and a husband who’s career is firefighting means that our schedule is always changing. However, we seem to be in a pretty predictable rhythm these days and it’s such a good feeling. Since I know one day I’ll wonder what life was like way back in 2017 and because I’m […]

MOM + MINI: HOW WE HALF UP TOP KNOT

It’s Friday! Time to let your hair down… or at least half of it, ha! Next to beanies and hats, the half knot is my most worn hairstyle these days. It tends to work well on a bad hair day or days when I’m not quite sure dry shampoo is enough (i.e. day 2 or 3 […]

LITTLE BITES: TRAIL MIX + MATCH

Trail mix is full of healthy fats and good energy and is one of my go-to snacks for grabbing on the go or adding to school lunches. The only problem with store-bought versions is that certain little someones are always sneaking into the panty to pick out their favorite parts until there isn’t much mixed about […]

Remember this post with all my dining room inspiration, ideas, and questions!? Well, we tackled the last of our to do list over the weekend and I’m excited to share the (almost) final product… because of course I have a couple more things on my wish list! Ha… my poor husband. UPDATE: I added a […]

ICE CREAM MAKES YOU HAPPY + 5 THINGS

These pics have zero to do with the context of this post but they do remind me that warmer, sun kissed, ice cream eating days are ahead. Not that we’re ever not eating ice cream but you get the idea. In the meantime I’m going to try and be better about living in the in-between, […]
