IMG_3067

You guys! Remember when I redid my Master Bedroom with Raymour & Flanigan last year? I said in that post that our bedroom was now my new favorite room in the house. And it was. Until last month. When we re-did our family room with Raymour & Flanigan. OMG people. I am so obsessed with this room, I can't possibly even communicate how much … [Read more...]

Spring Looks with Stitch Fix #6

IMG_3043

Stitch Fix Box #6 arrived while I was in Chicago so it was fun to have it waiting when I got home!  It had been awhile since I received my last box - Box #5 was right before the holidays and I had only kept one dress from that shipment and waited awhile to try the next one. {By the way, if you aren't familiar with Stitch Fix, you can visit my … [Read more...]

We Got an Xbox One & What My Kids Are Playing

Screen Shot 2015-04-13 at 2.33.43 PM

Nate has been bothering me for several months now about wanting an Xbox One.  We have a Wii U and had an Xbox 360 and he really didn't play the Xbox much so I didn't see why he would suddenly start playing an Xbox One. But all of his friends were apparently on the One - but playing games like Call of Duty so I told him I was not starting with … [Read more...]

Are you guys as obsessed with Pinterest as I am?  It's my go-to now for a lot of things now, especially recipes.  I see so many gorgeous images and ideas on Pinterest and never do half of them but love the idea of having it all saved somewhere on a board. I love seeing what other people pin but sometimes it gets a little overwhelming, especially … [Read more...]

Dear Mother Nature, More Days Like Yesterday PLEASE

Screen Shot 2015-04-13 at 12.21.15 PM

April and May are going to be crazy for us.  Business trips, a big First Communion party and a trip to Disney, I feel like I'm totally scrambling. So when we woke up yesterday and saw that it was going to be a gorgeous day, I asked the kids what they wanted to do.  Cole's scheduled soccer game was cancelled due to some vandalism on his field … [Read more...]

Denim Jackets #FashionFriday

Screen Shot 2015-04-09 at 2.11.42 PM

One of the best things about spring is the ability to ditch the puffy/heavy winter jacket and trade it in for either no jacket or a light one.  I have a weird jacket obsession.  My husband's always asking why I have to have so many in the closet and I do admit that I way overbuy on jackets.  And for the winter... maybe he's justified in his … [Read more...]

Shelf Life of Makeup

Screen Shot 2015-04-07 at 1.23.24 PM

Ever wonder what the correct shelf life is for the goodies you have in your makeup bag?  I know that I'm TOTALLY guilt of keeping makeup items way past the shelf life so I recently thought I would look up and get specific answers. Truth be told, I was kind of shocked at how little some makeup products last!  Mascara - 2-3 months.  Out of all … [Read more...]

Discovered an Awesome Website & App for Parking ($5 Off Coupon Code Too!)

Screen Shot 2015-04-06 at 7.00.15 PM

We left our house at 6 am to make it to downtown Philadelphia and get to the start line with plenty of time for our race last weekend.  But one of the things I was really nervous about was parking. With thousands of people pouring into the city to park and run, and at a crazy early hour when not every parking garage was open, I was anxious about … [Read more...]

Hot Chocolate 15k Philadelphia Review & Recap #hc15k #hotchocolate15k #running #runchat

Screen Shot 2015-04-05 at 8.33.47 AM

On Saturday, my husband and I completed the Hot Chocolate 15k in Philadelphia.  (That's 9.3 miles.)  The only other big run I've done was the Broad Street Run in 2013 (10 miles). Running Broad Street is sort of thing here in Philly if you are a runner but now after running the Hot Chocolate race, I realize why I wasn't a fan. Broad Street is a … [Read more...]
