Well hello there!I just realized that I’ve had this beauty tutorial just sitting and collecting dust in my draft posts and I decided it was better to share it late than never. This is my no-makeup makeup look, the one I use when I like to pretend I have naturally clear skin (thank you, concealer!), long lashes (thank you, mascara!), and pink lips (thank you, lipstick!). I like to think of it as ‘Me, But […]

Hello! Happy Friday! Not too much to report this week. Home updates are almost done, but I still have a bit of work to do this weekend so that’s what I’ll be up to ☺ Hopefully next week will be a bit more calm, and I can get back to my regular schedule. I miss blogging! Hope you all have an excellent weekend, and enjoy this week’s favorites! Favorite dress: {in LOVE with this out-of-my-budget Paddo […]

Is there anything better than taking the time for a slow, leisurely breakfast? We’re talking coffee, flowers, sunlight streaming in through the windows, combing through the paper for the comics interesting articles, etc., etc. Obviously, this only happens on weekends (if at all). However, tomorrow’s Friday, so despite my inexcusable absence from the blog this week, I’ve decided to share one of my favorite weekend breakfast recipes* in anticipation of the weekend! * I say […]

Well, hello! I’m so sorry for being a bit absent this week. My little brother arrived on Monday, and it’s been a whirlwind of trying to get house, school, and car/motorcycle stuff done! I do have a fun post for today, though. I love crafting and DIY projects, but, like almost everyone else who loves crafting and DIY, I am so bad about actually starting and finishing projects from beginning to end. Last weekend, however, […]

A few weeks ago, I came across this post on one of my favorite blogs, A Cup of Jo, and I bookmarked it immediately. In it, blogger Joanna Goddard describes her current bedtime routine with her two sons.  {image via} She’ll climb into the middle of their shared bed to tell her boys stories, sing songs, and lull them to sleep. During this time, she noticed that her sons love to each grab one of […]

Hello and happy Friday! How was your week? Mine was pretty good! Conrad’s mom, Cathy, is here for a short visit, and we’ve been spending a lot of time with family, which has been wonderful. Also, New West Fest is this weekend, so it looks like the next few days will be pretty crazy! I’m sad that Conrad’s band, Pandas and People, won’t be playing in the festival (due to scheduling conflicts), but I can’t […]

I think I can honestly say that there is nothing better than Swedish summer. It may only last one week per year (sob), but when the sun shines, the whole country just comes alive! After our France/Italy/Switzerland extravaganza, we had planned a few quiet days in Stockholm with my dad and brother before heading back to Colorado. Unfortunately, as soon as we got to Stockholm both Conrad and I became pretty sick (probably due to travel, lack […]
