A Quick Lamp Makeover with Minted

Posted: April 12, 2017

I have these two floor lamps that we love! But they don’t quite match, had whatever shade thrown on them and well made the bedroom feel a bit drab. I saved one lamp from a dumpster & the other I found thrifting…they are both somehow Pottery Barn! So while I didn’t pay much for the two of them, they are quality items that now look amazing with a bit of help from minted.

Seeing Blue (and White)

Posted: April 10, 2017

Last fall I thrifted this dress…well it WAS a dress. With giant shoulder pads & a highly unflattering sleeves…but the FABRIC. Oh man, the blue & white just sung to me. So, for a measly $1.50 I bought the dress and stored it away in my closet because I didn’t want to pull out my sewing machine.

Enjoying Those Extra Moments of Sun

Posted: April 3, 2017

With the days getting longer it seems like they get a bit crazier, probably because the sun doesn’t go down as quick signaling the kids to chill out & get ready for bed. But I’m grasping at every sliver of fun I get with these kiddos of mine. During homework time we love to take it outside with our Goldfish snacks & enjoy some rare quiet moments together.

Getting Ready For Easter

Posted: April 3, 2017

Easter Sunday is coming upon us & I host this holiday for our families. I love decorating for spring, cooking huge batches of food, preparing activities for the kids and well my dress usually falls to the back burner. I usually just pull something from my closet or grab something from Amazon Prime. Anyone else been saved by Amazon for events, parties, holidays?! Yes?

Tricking Veggies Into My Day

Posted: March 30, 2017

Ok so we are all stressing about sneaking veggies into our kids diet but we need to lead by example. New articles come out everyday stressing to us the importance of vegetables. Well hopefully you eat your veggies & your good habits will eventually rub off on the kiddos…but until then enjoy a sweet treat from Garden Lites. The chocolate muffins are over 1/3 veggies!!

I’m excited for spring time weather and all that comes with it! I love looking out my kitchen window to see my fig tree turning green & producing fruit while next to it my roses are exploding with color. I’m looking forward to seeing how my garden turns out this year, I’m hoping to have crops of cucumbers, zucchini, tomatoes, strawberries & plenty of herbs. Enough of my love for my backyard, onto my outfit that is spring ready!
