Memorial Day Weekend Sale Finds

This is a great weekend to stock up on summer essentials, because literally everything is on sale. Earlier in the week, Amy shared her favorites from the Nordstrom half-yearly sale (you can see them here), and today I’ve got a few of my picks for you.

Items in the Nordstrom half-yearly sale are up to 40% off.  My favorites are this Tory Burch belt:

As someone who goes to a lot of formal events, I love this grey floral high-low gown, and I love the price even more!

My friend, Ashly (yes, she of the amazing Christmas home tour), swears by the functionality of these HOBO wallets, and they’re 40% off right now.  Brown leather is always classic, but their powder blue is lovely, too. Click Here to Read More

Organizing Our Double Pantry {Real Food Organization}

  I started this project right after we moved into our temporary rental home, but the lack of natural light inside our kitchen/breakfast area has made taking photos of our pantry (and most of the kitchen) a challenge. I finally dragged out my lighting kit and now that we're just weeks away … [Read More...]

Blue & White Throughout the House

  I've been doing a deep clean to get our little house ready for all of the family and friends who will join us for our son's high school graduation this weekend, and one thing I've noticed is that I've got blue and white everywhere (not that that's a bad thing!). If you're … [Read More...]

Easy Grill Recipe: Steak Kebabs

This post is sponsored by HomeRight.  All opinions are my own.   Mother's Day is just a few days away, and it's warm and sunny out--where I am, at least.  That means it's time to blow the pollen off the grill cover and start cooking outside! Today I'm sharing a super, super easy recipe that is … [Read More...]

Amy’s Birthday

Today is Amy's birthday, so of course I gave her the day off from blogging.  That being said, since it's May and we're at the bitter end of the school year (and they're building a new house!), I'm sure she's keeping herself busy on her "day off." Her present is going to be late...I texted her … [Read More...]

Peach Pear Cocktail Recipe

Because it's Friday and we've all survived another week, I thought I'd post my most recent favorite cocktail.  Mind you, this is so simple that there's pretty much to need to call this a "recipe," but sometimes the simplest ideas are the best!

Teen Bedroom Inspiration

Today I'm showing off my daughter, Annabelle's room, in our little Mint Chocolate Chip (MCC) House.  It's my favorite bedroom right now because it's pretty much "finished."
