Back to School Bouquets

Well, the kids are definitely back in school.  We are starting to get into a bit of a routine.  I like to start the year off with a gift for my kids’ teachers.  It’s simple math: Happy Teacher = Happy Students!  Last year I made fresh Apple Scones for the teachers, and the year before [...]


Instagram Necklace

Are you digging instagram like I am these days? I’m having so much fun playing with filters and sharing my stylish pictures instantly with my friends.

Whose body am I in?

Olivia is now 6 months old, and I’m getting kind of tired of getting out of the shower and not recognizing the body I’m in.  In my head I’m not still 15 pounds overweight, but when I get a glance at myself in the mirror, I’m rudely reminded that I am. I recently cleaned out [...]
