Life Lately

Life lately is complete chaos, or at least that is how it feels.  Every second of every day has been scheduled and occupied.  Two weeks plus of solid go, go, go.  Life lately is emotional and full of change, which pregnancy hormones do nothing to help.

Currently Obsessed Home Edition

My home shopping wish list is long and full of good stuff lately.  I clearly have no use for most of it and a husband who doesn’t want a plethora of pillows and chairs with no place to call home. However, I can dream, right?  From faux designer pillows, to fueling my new topiary addiction, […] Read more…

Life Lately : The Holidays Recapped

Happy 2017 babes!  I cannot believe how fast the last couple of weeks have flown by and cannot believe it is January 3rd, 2017.  I mean, what the what?! We had a pretty jam packed last couple of weeks, so I decided to take a little time off because I knew there was no time […] Read more…

We had not had any […] Read more…
