The New Jeans

April 8, 2013

So, these are the new jeans. I’m loving them. So comfortable and versatile. I’m working on wearing them with flats, though I’m not exactly sure how to keep them super feminine with flats. But I’m going to work on that, because I love these jeans and wish I could wear them everyday.

How was your weekend? Mine was pretty stinkin’ fantastic! It was a weekend that I wished wouldn’t end, even though I was really tired last night by 7:30! I got to take my niece birthday shopping, went to a bonfire with my sister at her in-laws, and had one of those days with friends that is just encouraging and good for the soul. You know what I’m talking about? It’s something that you can never manufacture, but when it happens, you love it so much that you start asking your friends deep questions just to get it to happen again. Guilty as charged. But then you see how good just keeping things really light and fun can be too. I guess I’m just feeling really rich in the friend department. Love all you girls! xo

What did you do? I hope it was as beautiful where you are as it was here. SPRING!!!!!

So Tempted Right Now

April 5, 2013

This gorgeous JCrew bag is on sale with an extra 30% off! I am so tempted right now. I have realized that I am a serious bag lady! And this amazing bag would be great to add to my collection. Don’t you think?



Last week I posted a photo (on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook) and asked “Would you believe me if I told you we made fudge that is actually good for you? Because we did.” So I thought I’d share my recipe with you! And since it’s Friday, I thought it would be the perfect weekend treat.

Healthy Fudge Recipe

OK, so here’s the thing. I am the kind of girl who can eat whatever I want, and it doesn’t show. Which is a blessing and a curse, because that means I eat anything I want. But I still have had some health problems—like migraines. So I decided to visit a nutritionist to see what foods are triggers for me not feeling well. This has led to some changes in my diet. One major one is sugar. Ahem. So after 2 days, I was going through major withdrawals and needed something to help me out. Well, first we made chocolate syrup (so I could have chocolate milk!). I used this recipe and replaced the sugar with honey. So then we decided to make this fudge that Bob made about a year ago for the first time. But I didn’t love that recipe. It was a little too dark for me. So, we decided to throw some peanut butter in to make it a bit more creamy. And while we’re still perfecting the recipe, it’s pretty dang good the way it is. Not to mention it is actually good for you! And since this is not a health blog, I’ve linked the ingredients to more information on how they are all healthy foods.




  • Mix all the ingredients into a pan on your stove over medium-low heat.
  • Once melted and mixed well, pour it into a pyrex dish over parchment paper on the bottom and sides.
  • Place the dish in the fridge (or freezer!) until cool.
  • Chop into pieces and enjoy!

Love it when I find a pair of shoes that matches an obnoxiously colored bag I already own.

Do you know what happens when you have friends (Megan and Carol) who are way more stylish than you could dream of ever being, and they work at Nordstrom? You buy what they tell you to buy.

And you also listen to little nuggets of privileged information like, “All we’re getting in is boyfriend jeans. Skinny jeans and a lot of boyfriend jeans.” You heard it here, folks.

Can’t wait to show you more of these jeans. They are a little daring for me, but I have a feeling they’re going to be my new favorites.

Did you all have a Happy Easter!? We had a great weekend here. Lots of family time, nice weather, and I got to wear this dress again. All in all, I’d say it was a win. What did you do?
