    As I’ve gotten older I have embraced my fair skin and paleness. In fact, I love it. I don’t like being tan and think it looks weird and unnatural on me. I used to try all the self tanning products and ...

Weekend Wrap Up

I hope everyone had a great Memorial Day! Yay for 3 day weekends. Ours was definitely packed full of fun. The past few days was filled with cookouts, pool time, walks, play dates and a first birthday party. With as much excitement as Henry has had you’d think he’d be worn out and napping, but no. His naps have been…

Five Things Friday – Father’s Day!

Okay, more like Five Things Saturday. Yesterday got away from me. Typical.  I am more excited about Father’s Day than I was about Mother’s Day.

Five Things Friday – All about Gold

For years I shunned away from gold and refused to buy or wear anything that even resembled the color.  Perhaps it was in fear that I would look euro-trashy or like Mr. T. But lately,  I have been obsessed with all things gold. When I saw the engraved bracelet (#1) I immediately put it on my want list (which is huge). I…
