Oh Happy Day

Cate Mezyk - April 21, 2015

I really, really, really like birthdays. What could be more fun than a day set aside to celebrate someone? And I make no exception for my own birthday – it’s a great excuse to see friends, relax a bit, and do some favorite things. I’m turning 37 today. Now, the number itself has never bothered me. I don’t mind inching toward 40. I just don’t …

I’m Doing It Anyway

Pink Minnetonka Moccasins

I think all Minnesotans get to a certain point where they are just done with winter. Sure, there are snowmobiling lovers and ice fishing fanatics galore to be found around here, but once it’s officially spring, I think we can all agree that it should actually feel like spring. I’ve decided that I’m going to act like it’s spring outside, even when the weather doesn’t …

How To Decorate A Coffee Table

How to style a coffee table

I love redecorating my house. Unfortunately, as I’ve said before, I don’t have carte blanche to spend all of our money on it. So instead, I get creative, switching up what we already have in our house, and finding new homes for it. One of the things I love to freshen up is our coffee table. Our family room is the first room you see …

Stamp of Approval

Cate Mezyk - April 14, 2015

My husband and I have this ongoing funny thing where he thinks a lot of what I wear is totally crazy town, and I laugh because I don’t mind being different. Case in point, my bird shirt (seen here). He hated that shirt to the point where he actually took a vote from our friends to see how many of them hated it too. The verdict? …

Minnesota Barnwood. Welcome Home.

Titus' MN barnwood round kitchen table-9

Titus has done it again. Remember when Cate got her table last fall? So beautiful, right? I knew I had to have one! The idea of gathering my family ’round a table built especially for us sounded so amazing. I knew as soon as we moved into our new house, we needed Titus to come to our dining rescue. Our informal dining area is a walk-through. People walk from our kitchen …

Punta Cana 2015-WIW

I’ve been procrastinating. I just couldn’t get myself to edit our vacation photos due to the fact that I have one billion snapshots to go through. It’s daunting to say the least. I packed my good DSLR and between the 5 of us, 5 iphotos are full of pics. Now that’s ridiculous. I finally spent some time today sorting through my Lightroom folders. I don’t even want to admit …

Pour Some Sugar On Me

Flatforms by Tori Burch

My son, Davis, at the ripe old age of six, has become a big time lover of music. Both of my girls like music, and can often be heard singing along to the radio. But he really LOVES it. More specifically, he really loves rock music from yesteryear. (ok, I just crazy aged myself by using the word yesteryear, but anyhoo…) Def Leppard? He digs …

How To Style a Classic – Converse

How to wear your Converse shoes - with skinnies

If there is one item that you should have in your closet, it’s a pair of Converse classic low cut Chuck Taylors. I have worn mine approximately 1,687,492 times (that’s just a rough estimate), and every time I wear them differently. To help convince you that you simply must (regardless of your age or fashion style) own a pair, I thought I’d share just a …
