    I can’t believe Thanksgiving is just days away… then Christmas, New Years Eve, MY BROTHER’S WEDDING–and just like that, it’s 2017! The older we get, the faster time goes by.  Then once you become a parent, forget it, you can barley keep up.  Most of the time, I barely know what day of the week […]

    One of my favorite fall activities is picking apples and picking out a pumpkin or two at the farm.  This has been a tradition for Joe and I for the past five years, well before Jayden joined our family–but this year was different.  Last year, we actually missed the Pumpkin Patch/Apple Farm… Jayden was still […]

    Family Halloween costumes are my favorite! I wasn’t always super into Halloween.  I mean, dressing up is fun and all, but I was okay if I missed the holiday a year or two .  But now that I have a little one of my own, Halloween is quickly becoming one of my favorite holidays!  Dressing […]

    If there were a pumpkin lovers support group, you could bet I would be a member.  Heck, I might even be the President.  I LOVE pumpkin so much, I eat it all year-long in both savory and sweet form.  Four years ago, before I even had this blog, I had started “12 Weeks of Pumpkin” […]

    Back when I worked for Michael Kors, I traveled weekly all over the US and a least a couple of times to Mexico. Traveling can get pretty stressful, but the one thing I did enjoy is all of the hotels and city I was able to experience.  In the beginning of my career, I used […]

    Leading up to Jayden’s first birthday, I knew I wanted to do a themed photoshoot. If you know me, you know I’m all about a theme! I actually decided “Where the Wild Things Are” for the shoot first, then took that theme into planning Jayden’s party. One of the main decor items I wanted to do […]

    Fall is my favorite season! If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you already knew that.  If you’re new here… fair warning–I’m pretty obsessed! Between the falling of the leaves, the cooler temps, the festivals, the layers, the pumpkin (ALL THE PUMPKIN) my list could go on and on with the many reasons […]

    Once the scene was set, we were ready to party! …but first, I had to rush home get myself and my baby ready and then rush back, resulting in Jayden and I arriving 20 min late. At least “fashionable late” is totally a thing, which I think we nailed. From the moment we stepped in, […]

    I decided on the theme for Jayden’s first birthday, back in May.  It’s nowhere near original… I’d be the first to admit, a “Wild One” b-day party is pretty basic.  But I really didn’t care, I knew I would be able to execute it in a unique way.  I always loved the book “Where the […]
