I’m dedicating this Friday’s fashion roundup to one of my favorite Etsy stores, lovelane. I quickly fell in love with this store while sifting through Instagram.  I love the bold designs and the bright colors – it makes me wish these super hero costumes came in my size! These perfectly crafted capes also feed my love of […]

Want to know what drug use and parenthood have in common? I thought you might. If you were around in the 80s, you may remember the anti-narcotics commercial from the PDFA (Partnership for a Drug Free America) that was famous for coining the term, “This is Your Brain on Drugs”. The popular advertisement showed an […]


All I have to say is that my husband is so damn lucky we don’t have a girl. If we did, I would surely syphon our savings account in order to feed my moc addiction. Don’t misunderstand, I’ve seen some little dudes rock the moccasin look – I’m just not sure it works on my son. Moccasins […]

Fright Night Fashion 2

  I wish everyday were Halloween. I could stroll into work looking like the zombie I normally wake up looking like and no one would say a thing. I would eat endless amounts of candy and wear slutty outfits without being ridiculed. I wouldn’t have to dust my house because cobwebs are cool and I would finally be […]

Ear muffs

  My kid recently dropped the f-bomb and much to my dismay, there was no mistaking it for “truck” or “duck” or quite possibly, “help me I’m stuck”. The pronunciation was loud and clear and used in just the right context. It was unequivocally the f-word. No need to scold me about what a terrible […]


Signs of October are finally upon us! The A/C is no longer running, gusts of cool wind swirl through the streets and Starbuck’s Pumpkin Spiced Lattes adorn passersby. The sun is staying asleep longer in the mornings and the smell of holiday baking fills the air. Scarves, gloves and dark colors like eggplant and forest green […]


Weston’s bedtime routine has become a tad challenging in the past few weeks and if it weren’t for bubble bath beards and strawberry flavored toothpaste he would surely claim torture. In an effort to make the transition to bed more appealing, I’ve whipped up a few bedtime story inspired outfits to help bring the party to any pajama-fest. Here are a few ideas on how to bring […]


It’s that time again when I help you spend your hard earned money ;). I’m not going to lie, this round up was a bit harder. I’m severely out of practice when it comes to shopping for girls and as much as I can’t wait for Fall, I’ve been less than motivated to look for warm clothes while […]

To the adorable couple we met at the water park a few weeks back with whom we forgot to exchange numbers, my husband and I mourn the loss of a friendship with you that we never had.  It isn’t every day that you meet your family’s soul family, which is exactly what you were, and we are deeply afraid that we’ve […]

When I found out I was having a boy, I was over the moon. A self professed tomboy, I silently thanked the Universe for sparing me from my own personal hell known as pink bows, lacey things, shrieking girls and Justin Bieber concerts. However, despite my tendency to gravitate towards a no frills lifestyle, I am a closet fashionista with a […]
