August 1st, how is it possible? This year is flying by. It’s hard to believe that next month – on September 22 – Lucia will be 1. Crazy! This month, I’m taking advantage of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and adding my favorite items to my August wish list. There is a little bit of everything included – accessories, shoes, home decor and even makeup. #Nsale

Happy shopping!

Looking Ahead: Spring Home Accessories

The new Nate Berkus Spring collection has hit Target stores and not surprisingly, I’m loving it all! Featuring vintage inspired pieces with a relaxed Southwestern vibe, the collection includes items with natural colors, soft textures and  graphic patterns. In my eyes, Mr. Berkus can do no wrong. Well done sir, well done.

UncommonGoods Giveaway + Date Night at Home

As you can imagine life with an almost 4 year old and a 5 month old is pretty hectic. It’s hard to make time for ourselves and enjoy time together as a couple. Date nights are difficult to arrange but even if we can’t go out, Brad and I try to have a couple of date night’s at home each month. Last Saturday with the help of Uncommon Goods, we enjoy a quiet night at home with a few drinks and apps.
