You guys…its official. This past weekend we celebrated Harper’s First Birthday! I am having allllll the feels about it. How did she grow up so fast?! I swear I blinked and here we are! Things have been so crazy around here I wasn’t really sure what to do for a party. Of course she is only 1 and will never remember it, but she is my last one, so I just HAD to do something! Plus who doesn’t love the chance to do something special with the ones you love most?!
As a busy mom of 5 little people, dinner time is not always my favorite part of the day. Getting something put together that everyone will like and is at least somewhat healthy is not always an easy task. A couple weeks ago I shared a little peek of Joe + I throwing together a favorite quick dinner. I could not believe the amount of requests we had to share the recipe! We actually got the recipe from our friends when we lived in Kentucky and we have loved it ever since. Besides being delicious, this recipe takes about 10 minutes to put together, making it a favorite quick dinner in our house!
If you’re new around here, every Saturday I do an Instagram Round Up of all our outfits + an update on the family from the past week. An Instagram Round Up is kind of a one stop spot to get all the links to things you saw + loved. I include all the best sales of the week to make it easy to shop them in once place! In addition to the Instagram Round Up, I include a little update on us. Just a few details on whats new in our little corner of the world!
I hope you all are having a happy Friday!! I am so excited to be starting a new series here on the blog that I think you are going to love! Once a week I will be sharing my Favorite Finds. I’ll pick 5 or so items and go in to a little more detail on each. Over on my Instagram Stories I share a lot of these favorites. Anything from a favorite top of the moment, home decor piece I’m loving, or quick tips to make life easier. I think of you as a big group of girlfriends that I can chat with.
Winter is in full swing here in Utah! My little people are happy to report we FINALLY got some snow! They may have loved seeing the snow more than any present under the tree! Now that the magic of Christmas is over it is time for that January funk. I don’t know about you, but I always seem to get in a blah post holiday mode. This year I’m determined to bring light in however I can. One way that always helps for me is to add a pop of color to my wardrobe. My favorite unexpected winter color this year has got be Blush. It is still soft enough to not come across extreme, but brings that little bit of something special to your look. I wanted to share my favorite ways to add Blush into your look this season!
Also I just found this amazing CARDIGAN here!! And just snagged one for myself!!
When putting together an outfit, one of my favorite go to items is probably a cardigan. Utah has some very chilly weather, so layering is a must. Cardigans are the perfect staple piece for layering. First of all, they’re super comfortable and cozy, while still being fitted + put together to go out in. That pretty much describes a cardigan in a nut shell! haha! They are so easy to throw on over a t-shirt and jeans or dress when its not as cold, or a great way to dress up a simple t-shirt dress! When its freezing in Utah, I like to grab the chunky thick options and pair it with a cute beanie and boots. Since they are definitely an item I turn to on a daily basis, I wanted to share some of my favorite cozy cardigans with you!
Happy first Saturday of the year!! If your new around year every Saturday I do an Instagram round up of the week. So all of my outfits + the little peoples that I’ve posted on Instagram are linked here for your convince. I also do a small little update from the week and share any great sales going on during the weekend.
Time seems to be flying by and 2018 is here! I can’t even believe it! I swear I remember all the crazy Y2K worries and here we are 18 years later! My favorite thing about a new year is a fresh start. To me it is like getting a clean slate. With the fresh start always seems to be the addition of goals for the year. I love sitting down with a notebook and planning out a few things I want to focus on for the year.I love hearing goals other people have because they usually spark ideas for me as well, so I thought I’d share this years top 4!
Happy 2018!! I thoughts I’d share my favorite posts from 2017 + a few thoughts with you all. I hope you all had the best week with the ones you love most! This time of year always has me thinking about how incredibly grateful for I am for what I have been blessed with. My family and the opportunity to be in this new home together that we have dreamed of is the best present I could’ve ever asked for. But right at the top of the list as well is you guys. I am so grateful for your support.
I hope you all had such a Merry Christmas! It was so special to be together as a family in our new home! We are currently still in the no schedule + pj’s all day mode and couldn’t love it more! With the craziness of the holidays + kind of taking a break from the online world, I got a little behind on my direct messages + link requests! I’ve tried to include all the most asked links here, as well as some awesome after holiday sales happening this weekend! Be sure to check out my favorites I rounded up from the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale too!
