Movie Night + Fandango

Hubby and I went on our first movie date since our first date, which was almost nine years ago. I heard Kirk Cameron just released a limited run inspirational movie called Saving Christmas, only out for two weeks, and I really wanted to see it. We bought tickets online at Fandango.com, called our trusty sitter, […]

A Wardrobe Created Just For Your Body

My body is a unique shape. Most of us have bodies that don’t fit a specific mold, but we buy cookie cutter clothes in department stores or online that we hope come close when we shop our general size. Sometimes the clothing looks great, and other times it’s a disappointing miss, especially when it’s an […]

  • Everything looks good on you but I do like that dress. I tried eshakti before but it seems like I need to give it another shot.ReplyCancel

  • I have issues with clothing all looks the time. I really, really like your dress. It looks lovely on you.ReplyCancel

  • Rachel

    This looks great! I love yoru dress and it fits you nicely.ReplyCancel

  • That design and cut are simply gorgeous! I also agree with you that convenient, ready to wear pieces shouldn’t be the bulk of one’s wardrobe. They’re not always the most flattering. That’s why I’ve been slowly yet surely dwindling down my wardrobe pieces over the past few months.ReplyCancel

  • Looks fantastic and you look great in those pics. How did you light it?ReplyCancel

    • Penelope

      This is the kitchen light overhead (I use a “daylight bulb” for natural light)ReplyCancel

  • What a beautiful dress and looks amazing on you! I’ve been thinking about trying a custom dress from them…I’m definitely doing to do it for Christmas!ReplyCancel

  • I hate how I look in dresses because I’m overweight so I would love to see how it would turn out if I custumized it.ReplyCancel

  • I don’t wear dresses (I’m a sweats and T-shirt kind of girl), but you look amazing though.ReplyCancel

  • It sounds like it’s a good thing you gave them a second try. That’s a gorgeous dress.ReplyCancel

  • I love eshakti, being very very petite it has served me well purchasing clothing from them. My pants always come with the correct inseam, and shoulders aren’t falling off my body when ordering tops for myself. That dress is so cute on you!ReplyCancel

  • I got a chance to try this on Mac’s site and loved it. BTW that dress looks amazing on you.ReplyCancel

Create A Snack Pantry + Fill It With Healthy Snacks That Nourish

This year was spent renovating our home, and our kitchen received a big overhaul in the process. I specifically added a corner shelf on one side with the intention of filling it with healthy snacks for my family to enjoy whenever they want, without having to find me. It needed to be a space that […]

  • Cute idea and very practical. Although, we couldn’t have one so accessible. My children are hungry just about every 3.5 seconds so we have to keep the snacks where they can’t reach them. But you little cabinet is adorable!ReplyCancel

  • Those look really good! I don’t have a healthy snack pantry, but now I am thinking about it and might have to create one! Great idea!ReplyCancel

  • I’ve never had snacks from Nourish, but they looks delicious! I’m always trying to make sure my kids snack healthy. Thanks for the brand! Can’t wait to try them out.ReplyCancel

  • I have never tried this, but I like that this is ahealthy snack alternative! I am always looking for one!ReplyCancel

  • The almond to cherries mix looks especially appealing. I would so love to try a few of these out. Love the idea of a healthy pantry.ReplyCancel

  • I want to raid your snack closet.. these look delish!!ReplyCancel

  • Those look like some great snacks! I love having a healthy pantry of snacks too.ReplyCancel

  • Those are some great tips. If I provide healthy snacks, the kids will eat them. If I provide junky, artificial snacks, the kids will eat them. I need to check out Nourish.ReplyCancel

  • I like having a fruit bowl or a bowl or nuts. We do keep raisins handy. Our children like to munch on frozen blueberries which are pretty easy to access too.ReplyCancel

  • Oh wow, these sound so good. I like the idea of a healthy pantry, tasty and handy.ReplyCancel

  • I wish my kids and hubby would actually eat the healthy snacks.ReplyCancel

  • I love healthy snacks. I’ve never heard of this brand, though.ReplyCancel

    I need a new area rug. Looks like that have a variety to pick from.ReplyCancel

  • Those are GORGEOUS rugs! I certainly need a new one in my living room! Would love to win one!ReplyCancel

    UGH I can’t find dealer near meReplyCancel

    I have two dealers in my area, Baer’s and Addison’s – awesome I love the designs I’m seeingReplyCancel

  • I agree a rug can really change the look of a room along with paint. I usually find a rug I love and then do my room around it. I love your rug, it’s beautiful!ReplyCancel
