Join me for coffee. Let's just sit and chat. comfy and all-5

Coffee-time with friends is near and dear to my heart. I especially enjoy it when I can curl up in comfy home-body clothes and make a morning of it. The other day a friend stopped by to catch up on life. Life happens way too fast and unfortunately I have to schedule it to make it happen these days. So just as scheduled, my friend rang the doorbell. …

FREE Printable Rock Valentine-2

With Valentine’s Day flying up on us, I have been thinking… Why add more sugar to this all too sweet holiday? The kids score enough additive-filled candy from everyone else so why not be different this year. Stand out from the crowd. My girls love collecting rocks. Case and point, we found most of the rocks we needed for this craft in my youngest’s toy-box. Why? I’m not …

Kickin’ it comfy. Sometimes that’s just what I need to do. Simple layers. No muss. No fuss. And a sweatshirt at that. I am rarely seen out of my house in a sweatshirt but I like this one. It looks casual yet put together. I think the zippers are my favorite. They add the excitement I need. A perfect outfit for working the shop on the “getting …

thrifted DIY side table-

When I moved into our new house last November I started with a clean slate. Our living room furniture found a home in the kids’ loft. Our old familyroom furniture went directly to the unfinished basement for the kid’s entertainment area. Which left my front sitting room and new family room empty. Yay! Yay! Except for the little detail of los dollares. My tastes are not matching …

Snuggle Me jacket paired with denim

Snuggle me Snuggly. Snuggle Me Snuggly is one of my family’s favorite bedtime books. I’ve read it so many nights over the last twelve years that we’ve started reciting the entire book page by page without even having it in our hands. Here we go… straight from memory… Not sure if I’ll get all the randomness correct but it’s a fun challenge anyway. Snuggle Me Snuggly, …

Will I Get Ridiculed?

Bora Bora Four Seasons

I’m not sure how this will be received but I’m spilling it anyway. My husband and I have just decided to skip a romantic vacation alone. Why? Not because we don’t love each other. Not because we don’t need time away from it all to reconnect. And Not because we don’t have childcare available to us. We are happily celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary in April and had glorious …
