Wedding Wednesday: Peach and Navy Palette

Have you entered our $100 LuLu's shopping spree giveaway yet? As I said last week, despite having gotten hitched over three years ago, I still just really LOVE weddings. I visit some of favorite wedding blogs nearly daily and I could happily pour over other brides' wedding photos for hours. Tell me I'm not alone in this. The colors of my own affair were turquoise and black as you can see evidence of with my lovely bridesmaids' black frocks and turquoise drop earrings and the hubs' tie. I still big puffy heart this color combination, but I fall...

$100 LuLu’s Shopping Spree Giveaway Today!

Good morning lovelies. I hope you weren't up as early as I was. The dude figured out how to get himself out of his crib a couple nights ago, so I'm sure you can imagine what's been going on over at our casa. It's been PARTY time! Why sleep when you can play the oh so fun game of climbing in and out of your crib over and over and over again with Mommy and Daddy? All I can say is thank goodness for coffee! Even if you're as sleep deprived as moi, our giveaway...

Pale is the New Black: Wearing Soft Tones this Fall

Tomorrow is the last day to enter our Charm Design zipper pouch giveaway! Happy Monday lovelies! I hope everyone had a beautiful weekend. I'm sure it ended all too fast as mine did. I know I sound like a broken record, but it just seems like Monday comes in the blink of an eye without fail doesn't it? Happily, I am well rested, thanks to my darling hubs who got up with the dude Saturday AND Sunday, so Monday being right up in my face isn't bumming me out as much as it typically does. Plus,...

Chicken Enchiladas, A Recipe Large Enough To Keep The Good Times Coming

Last month’s Real Simple featured an article on the concept of dinner swaps.  The idea is that you and one or more of your friends and neighbors each make a dinner, but enough of it to feed as many families that participate in the swap.  If you had three participating it would be three lasagnas, etc.  The thought is that it takes very little time to create more of the same dinner, and that you would then only be cooking once instead of three separate nights.  The other two nights you can pop the received...

For my dream vow renewal, I’m seeing shades of yellow and grey!

Have you entered this morning's adorable zipper pouch giveaway? So, I'm an old married lady now, but that doesn't stop me from drooling WAY too often over weddings. I'm determined to convince the hubs that a vow renewal is a fabulous idea. I'm of the firm belief that a girl should get to wear a wedding gown more than once! I don't think that a second wedding is too much to ask for. Do you? HA! The first time around I had a traditional affair that was held in a beautiful ballroom. The next time around it...

A Giveaway that Will Help You Get Organized Beautifully

Hi, my name is Kristin and I have a secret. My bag is, more often than not, pitifully disorganized. I swear, when the dude was an infant, that diaper bag of mine was meticulouslypacked. I had every single little baby doodad that you can imagine separated and tucked into its own little bag or pocket. Fast forward to two years later and you'll find Hot Wheel cars mixed in with goldfish crackers mixed in with a random lipstick or two and if, I'm lucky, my wallet and phone. I might be alone in this, but...

George Clooney Comes For Dinner

Being somewhat of a newbie at owning a house with storage space means that in addition to playing hide and seek and actually having places to hide, I'm also able to decorate seasonally.  Whoo hoo!  When we lived in our city condo, space was so tight that if it wasn't something that was getting used year round, it didn't make it through the front door.  Besides, that precious closet space was occupied by shoes, shoes, and yes even more shoes!  Now that I have space for things like spare bedding, Christmas lights and even fall...

Rachel Zoe Style

So, a couple of months ago I wrote a little post about some statement jewelry that I was diggin' from one of Rachel Zoe's QVC collections. Well, after watching The Rachel Zoe Project episode where they were at New York Fashion Week  recently, I was reminded to revisit her line and, lo and behold, I found quite a few more pretties that I would be happy to add to my wardrobe. Say, what you want about Rachel, I happen to adore her, but I know there are some naysayers out there, the girl can style a...
