Please Do Not Expect Us to Look like Kate Middleton

Since the moment Kate Middleton strolled out of St. Mary’s Hospital in London, hair and makeup impeccable, pink newborn in arms, it is literally all the internet can talk about. In case you live under a rock or have more pressing matters on your mind, Kate labored, delivered, recovered, and met with her glam squad in about a seven-hour time frame. After all of that, she stepped outside, in an instantly iconic red dress, smiled and waved a few times, and got in the car with William and the baby to head home. And then we all lost…

Tuesday Tangents

So apologies for some of these blog post titles. I am the worst with titles/headlines (as you probably already gathered) so just fall back on the tried and true. Regardless, here are some Tuesday tangents for today! I got these lovelies in the mail a couple of days ago from Seventh Street Market. She has a great Insta shop. LOVE the bright colors in both of them, the gold leaf in the abstract floral, and of course all the OYSTERS 🙂 I am not an art expert or connoisseur by any means. My art buying philosophy is pretty much, is…

Monday Morning Reset

Happy Monday everyone! So I’ve mentioned before that on Monday mornings, I dependably and wonderfully end up with a couple of kid-free hours to myself. Ryland has preschool and my sweet best friend watches Bobby. And mama gets to go CRAZY. Or you know, clean the house, run errands, write, etc. I’ve spent the last few Monday morning me time sessions writing, because I’ve been working on a lot of freelance projects. In a word, I’ve been hustling, working really hard to get pieces submitted to either publications/sites that have…

Weekend Highlights

Happy Sunday everyone! Just wanted to pop in with a few little weekend highlights. Nothing too exciting around here, but we did manage to enjoy this lovely weather and have a little fun. Ryland and Bobby are both in the midst of, shall we say, challenging spurts (of course Bobby’s is a lot less intense than Ryland’s), so in between the fun times there was a lot of crying and screaming (and they also fussed a little too 🙂 ) On Friday, Ryland’s birthday present finally arrived (yes, her birthday was almost 2 months ago, two…

Friday Favorites

Hi pals! Thought I’d pop in real quick with some Friday favorites, since I haven’t in a while, and there are quite a few things I currently love and adore. So, in no particular order. 1. These adorable spring clothes for Ryland from Boden  So cute and fun and colorful! I love all of Boden’s spring collection and when I got a 20% gift code in the mail I couldn’t resist getting Ryland a few staples. 2. Um, also maybe a few sweet spring things from Gap/Old Navy (in my defense…

Checking In

Hey friends! So apologies once more. My posting has really lapsed the last few weeks, and again it’s due to a good thing, which is an abundance of freelance projects, but still, I hate to neglect this blog, because it means so much to me. So I thought I’d just do a quick check-in about life this past week, mostly based off of my iPhone photos 🙂 We enjoyed some beautiful weather over the weekend and tried to take full advantage. Isn’t this little picnic table the sweetest? It was Ryland’s bday…
