Viva Las Vegas! While much could be said for the Sin City, it was a true adventure to travel to Paradise, Nevada for 6 days for work - primarily by myself. Many advise that there is a 3 day limit to experiencing the city and I would have to agree; however, it was fun to seek the hidden gems and beyond-touristy attractions while I was there. So hopefully you’ll find something you didn’t know about before in my recap below!Read More
Well, it's that time of the new season...the 10x10 challenge. I've participated in the 10x10 challenge with Lee from the Style Bee and Caroline from Un-fancy (as well as the numerous gals from this vibrant community) in the fall and I'm very excited to be diving into this exercise again!
I call it an exercise because while the concept is like "Capsule Closet for Dummies," the most encouraging part is that it's ok to make your own rules and learn from the experience. So what is this all about, you ask? Well, it's simple. 10 pieces of clothing. 10 outfits. 10 days. That's it!Read More
This past weekend, I had the great pleasure of hosting a surprise baby "sprinkle", along with two dear friends. The honoree is a soon-to-be mama of 4 kids and was in need for the sweetest surprise on a sunny, Sunday afternoon. We schemed with her hubby to get all of her friends gathered in one room and lured her over to aid in car trouble woes. The afternoon was a wild success!Read More
After following Lee Vosbugh from The Style Bee and Caroline from Un-fancy, I finally decided to jump on the style challenge to take 10 pieces from your closet and style them 10 different ways for 10 days. I had half-heartedly tried for the spring challenge but didn't have accountability to stick to it and quickly went back to the other options in my closet. I'm so excited to be exploring this new realm with you!Read More
Being from the northern part of the country, it sometimes seems funny that we city folk have an insatiable desire to venture more north. But given any excuse to grab some hiking boots, cozy layers and a full tank of gas, we will point ourselves due north for a relaxing weekend.
Between busy work schedules, volunteering and social commitments, I've made a pact with some friends that every fall, we will take some time for quality R&R at a cabin to the north. For the past two years, we've headed to Grand Marais, MN.Read More
