• Meet Riley Ann

    Wow it’s been a long time. I guess you could say having two kids in two years has kept me busy. But, it only seemed right that since I shared Adley’s birth story, I sure as heck better share Riley’s in case blogs are around when they’re teenagers and one of them feels slighted…. #secondkidproblems So, where to begin? In… [Continue Reading]

  • Welcome to the Family, Adley Mae

    Well, I blinked and somehow our little Adley Mae is already over a month old. Mama’s don’t joke when they say that it goes by fast. I’ve been taking this last month to soak in every sweet, little moment, figure out our new normal and live life at a much slower, but sweeter, pace. Now don’t get me wrong — pregnancy is… [Continue Reading]

  • Third Trimester Update

    I literally started writing a pregnancy update when we were at the 100 day mark and well, we’re now less than 50 days from this little gals due date and I’m finally getting around to posting it. That pregnant life though… But it’s hittin’ me. This baby is going to be here soon. I’ve had this weird feeling since the beginning that… [Continue Reading]

  • 2018: A Year to Simplify

    Hopes, dreams, wishes, plans, resolutions; whatever you call them, the start of the new year is always the sweetest time to write these desires of our hearts down. For me?

    With snow on the ground & the leaves all long gone, it seems like we’ve made the abrupt transition to winter here in the upper Midwest.

Harvest Apple Cider Mules

Usually I’m all wrapped up in pumpkin this time of year — but as we head into November, I think I out-pumpkined myself so I decided to switch it up. Now, I’m all wrapped up in anything and everything apple. Between my new Maple Apple Bourbon candle, my overflowing apple basket and this yummy drink, I think it’s safe to…

5 Things Dave Ramsey Taught Me About Money

A few months ago, my husband and I went through Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University and boy did I learn a thing or twenty. You see, I always thought of myself as a “saver” but that was pretty quickly denounced only a few weeks into the class (ok, ok by a few weeks…I mean the first class.) “I knew how to…

Making My Social [Media] Life Easier with CoSchedule

I started a new job about a month ago…hence me being completely MIA from this blog. Y’all probably thought I overdosed on pumpkin chocolate chip cookies after that last post, didn’t you? Almost, but not quite. Trying to manage 12+ social media accounts for my new job, stay awake during my side job, figure out this whole marriage thing and somehow still…

The Best Fall Cookie You’ll Ever Eat

I know that we technically have a little over a week left of “official” summer…but this morning it was 36 degrees, so I think it’s safe to say that fall has made it’s debut up north. And though I’m a summer girl through and through, I can’t help but excitedly welcome fall each year. The brightly colored leaves, crisp morning air, lively…

The Reverse Capsule Wardrobe

A few years ago I tried to do a capsule wardrobe. Unfortunately, I didn’t ever get past the shopping phase… It seems like ever since the capsule wardrobe became popular a few years ago, everyone and their mother has given it a go. I mean, you can’t even scroll through Pinterest without seeing dozens of articles on capsule wardrobe. It’s…
