Closet Organization using KonMari Method | Inspiration on Monday

Closet Organization using KonMari Method | Inspiration on Monday

Hello everybody!! Or perhaps I should say Good News Everybody! I’ve finally had a chance to organize my clothes using the method described in The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up which means I am one step closer to never mentioning the book again. Bahahahaha. Just kidding. I’ll be talking about this book for the rest of my life. I keep my clothing in three places in the bedroom. I have two dressers with my casual […]

No Inspiration Today

No Inspiration Today

  My weekend was full of screams. Mostly the good kind. Now it’s Sunday night and I’m playing it solo with only the little one…which is oddly more difficult than having both munchkins at home. I’m exhausted and keep having to run upstairs to soothe the little. I’m allowing myself to bow out for the evening. There is an Inspiration on Monday Post being drafted in my head…but that’s where it’ll stay until I’ve gotten […]

Six Household Organizational Tricks| Inspiration on Monday

Next Monday will be a “regular” link-up as well. If you have a favorite way to stay […]

On Announcing a Pregnancy: When to Ask if Someone’s Pregnant

On Announcing a Pregnancy: When to Ask if Someone’s Pregnant

  I’ve taken four positive pregnancy tests in my lifetime. One of those times I was over the moon excited. And nervous. And filled with so many emotions. I spilled the news excitedly to our families and started gathering up all of the pregnancy books I could find. I filled out my pregnancy journal with all of the days of my pregnancy leading up to my August 17th due date. For one of those positive […]

Expanding This Christmas

Expanding This Christmas

Thank goodness our family does not look like these stick figures I drew. I kind of got out of control with Evie’s hair and that’s a baby bump on my midsection–not a gigantic breast. We are so excited to be adding another little one to our family this Christmas (December 29th to be exact) and this announcement is a little early but I’m too tired to keep secrets anymore. So yes, the rumors are true. If […]

For the Love of Camping

For the Love of Camping

The other day I mentioned allowing myself to live on whimsy for a little while. After I mentioned planning a camping trip, someone asked me if this would allow me that whimsy-living time. This gave me a bit of a pause because camping is a lot of work. It’s a lot of work get prepare for the trip–it’s not as though you can just run out to the market if you’ve forgotten something (depending on […]

Right Now I Am… [4.28.2015]

Right Now I Am… [4.28.2015]

  I’m totally cheating. I’m a much more organized blogger when I have something in the hopper, but I’ve been busy and tired lately and thus not much has stayed in the hopper. I do plan to write up a post for Elle’s fourth birthday, but those posts always take a lot of time to write. Anything picture heavy takes me a long time to write. Ok, kind of anything takes me a long time […]

In Which I Try to Have Style |Stitch Fix Friday

In Which I Try to Have Style |Stitch Fix Friday

Confession: I have very little fashion sense. I don’t wear make-up like a grown woman would (truly I just can’t be bothered). My hair is rarely done and frequently overgrown (#shorthairproblems). I’ve been wearing the same brown Doc Marten boots for 15 years.  And when I decided to stay at home with Evie for a year any effort I would have made into looking put together went straight out the window. Well, with the exception […]
