An argument Rich and I have sometimes is how much of a homebody I can be. He thinks that since we stay in a lot that we are missing out on things. I'll admit I can feel that way too, if we decide on a Friday night we're going to... Continue reading

We finally have some warm weather and I think Summer has arrived in CT! We had what felt like a month of nothing but rain or rain threatened in the forecast everyday, it was miserable! But this coming week looks gorgeous (70 degrees + everyday!) and is really getting me... Continue reading

If you follow me on Instagram you'll have seen I made a big change recently. I finally pulled the trigger and dyed my hair PINK! I've wanted to do this ever since the rose gold hair trend came into play about a year/year and a half ago. I've never been... Continue reading

Just a quick update on the almost seven month long project that is our basement. We're steadily making progress, in fact the unfinished storage area is there's that! No but seriously my laundry room/pantry area (which may be the part I'm most excited about) it about 95% complete. I'm... Continue reading

Of all the Spring/Summer holidays, Easter is probably the one I feel the most blasé about. We're not religious, so there's no church services to attend, and we don't have any children running around hunting for eggs or baskets, so it just doesn't have that special feeling to anyone in...

If I was asked to describe my own design aesthetic, it would be difficult for me to put into words. While most people can narrow themselves down into a specific genre easily (traditional, modern, coastal, boho, rustic), I tend to have a harder time putting myself and my home into...

A plus to not having the basement completed yet was that we finally were able to paint our front door...and because I'm not one to waste an opportunity we did the back door at the same time! Ever since we purchased the new front door over a year ago, I... Continue reading

When it rains, it pours, amiright? Been feeling a bit overwhelmed lately by a few curveballs that have been pitched this way. Ya, it would be easier to just keep posting house projects, clothes, and recipes -- but sometimes it feels good to write/read that not everything is always as... Continue reading

After trying to sell the house in the Fall and going through basically the same thing we went through in the Spring (get offer, find perfect house, have offer on our house fall apart, lose house we wanted, *hearts break a little, again*), we decided we were going to stay... Continue reading

CHRISTMAS!!!! I think that after the past 12 months, the world is ready for a little break and needs some positivity -- and what better way than the approaching holidays? It's a time of year we can all come together with family and friends, put our differences aside and enjoy... Continue reading

Rich and I recently jumped on the high-powered blender bandwagon and invested in a Blendtec. It's an absolute game changer when it comes to recipes and we've been enjoying many, many, MANY smoothies as of late. And while smoothies are fun to create and delicious to drink we wanted to...

Today is our four year wedding anniversary so we're off to Philadelphia for the night to celebrate. We've both never been there but have heard good things so we're pretty pumped to explore the city...and by explore I mean eat and drink our way through it. Four years is a... Continue reading

This past October right before BYOP, after much begging and pleading on my part, we got a new front door. Our door was original when we moved in and I kid you not was so warped you could see a sliver of outside at the bottom lie. Rich has... Continue reading

I received an email from Refinery29 the other day telling me something that I had been suspecting for a while now. That the push up bra was over and the bralette is currently reigning supreme. As member of the itty bitty, all I could think was HALLELUJAH! First of all,... Continue reading

I'm not particularly active on social media....I only have an Instagram, and I often struggle with the overwhelming feeling I have to get rid of it. This brings me to a crossroads sometimes as blogging is such a social media driven animal, and social media in general is something that... Continue reading

We're just about done with the kitchen. It's taken about a month as Rich has been super busy at work and let's face it, I've been kinda useless unless he's here as far as this project has gone. I want to take really nice pictures with the camera when it's... Continue reading

The first thing Rich and I did when we decided we were going to pull the house from the market was catalogue what projects we were going to want to do now that we were staying. This ended up being a weird process for a few reasons. One, was once... Continue reading

Rich and I have been married for 4 years this coming September and while everyday is not perfect, we have a pretty nice life. Rich started his own business a little over a year and a half ago and while at times it can be stressful (and expensive!) he's doing... Continue reading

Summer is officially here next week but it's vibe has been consistently present in CT for about a full month now. For me that means away are my moto boots, black leggings, and chunky sweaters and out come the shorts, dresses, and birks. One of my favorite brands for summertime... Continue reading

A few weeks ago Rich and I made the decision to get off the emotional rollercoaster that selling our house had turned into. The deal on our house fell through the day before we were going to go to contract on the house we wanted to buy. It's funny, once... Continue reading

I haven't done a food post in a while, so when Rich and I decided to make our own ice cream, I was all "WAIT! Where's the camera?? This is perfect for a blog post!" But not just any ice cream, avocado ice cream! You might remember a month or... Continue reading

I'm not sure why I thought this whole selling our house thing would be such a cakewalk. Keeping the house in tip-top shape ALL THE TIME, making sure Rich can get home from work to help me wrangle three pups, load them in the car, and then find somewhere to... Continue reading

Wow this past weekend was crazy! We had our first batch of showings at the house which meant piling Rich, myself, and 3 pups into my little 2 door car and finding things to do for a few hours. Luckily the weather was decent all weekend so we were able... Continue reading
