Better late than never

I went to a Home-A-Rama back in October, and it was freaking awesome. Just about everyone else has posted their pics and points of view, but I figured I’d rather be late that let these amazing pics just disappear into the Terabyte of abyss that is my Flickr account. This year’s Home-A-Rama was located in Westfield,…

A great day

I had a great Saturday, and I hope you did too! It started with some hang time with a long lost friend followed by a an epic, creatively fulfilling moment. I recently re-connected with a college friend. We both share a passion for interior design. Last week, we had a friend lunch date at a…

Succulent Saturday

It finally happened! I found faux succulents on sale! Do you ever stalk something you want for however long it takes until the price drops? Me too! I ended up taking two trips to Target – Don’t judge! With a forecast around 90 degrees for the next few days, I wasn’t sure if Tyler and…

A weird week

It’s been a weird week. I have been in a bit of a funk lately and have been attempting numerous productivity and positivity tips and tricks from Buzzfeed and The Muse. Some have stuck, some I still struggle with, and some I have bailed on. I also found a new podcast and tried something new. Let’s…

Hot sauce in my bag

SWAG. Sorry… (I ain’t sorry…) OK, done with Beyonce references (for now). I had a spectacular trip to the grocery store and wanted to share my new-found strategy. As previously mentioned, I have upped my coupon game. My mom and I attended an Extreme Couponing Workshop, and I walked away with 4 Indy Star subscriptions….

Watch the throne

You may or may not know that I have a puppy. 🙂 Her name is Harley Quinn, and she is perfect! I recently sort-of inherited a weird chair from a family friend and couldn’t help but turn it into a puppy throne. Have you ever seen a chair like this? It showed up on my…

Garage sale haul

Last weekend was awesome. I enjoyed every minute. As things have been a bit of a grind lately, I jumped at the opportunity to take a day off for shopping with my mom. Our Friday afternoon involved some more traditional shopping, but that morning garage sale season was in full swing. And we took full…

Organization station

Not sure if you have picked up on this, but I am pretty obsessive, meticulous, controlling, etc (In other words – A pleasure to be around 🙂 ) – BUT I will be the first to admit that I do not have my crap together. However, I feel like I do have a decent grasp….

Butter dish woes

I grew up in a fridge butter-tub family. My husband grew up in a room-temp butter dish household. For the past few years, he passively acquiesced to my insistence on chilled butter or butter substitute. In the last year, a Good Housekeeping or Real Simple article re-introduced this room-temp idea to me. And the saga…

Skills to pay the bills

Ironically enough, I started out in design school in college. I lasted one semester and met one of my besties in the process. Mallory and I had 7:30am classes Mon – Fri that first semester of our freshman year. It was rough. While I felt like I was pulling all-nighters with finger paints, Mal was kicking ass…
