    Entertaining and Celebrating

    You may have noticed that around the various holidays I like to post tablescape and decor inspo. I love looking at decor and design! So when I was sent this book, Entertaining and Celebrating with food and entertaining ideas for the seasons I had a great time flipping through the book. The book has beautiful photos for decor inspiration for each season. It has food ideas in such detail. I mean, they break down a menu for you from the amuse bouche, appetizer, entree, dessert, and even what kind of service style you should/could use! This is definitely my kind of (non-reading) book! *This book was sent to me complimentary, but…

    Striped Button Sweater

    Last day of work before spring break! I’ve been writing my posts a few days in advance this week which I tend to do when I know my week is going to be crazy and especially before I travel. That way I’m ahead so when I first arrive at my destination I’m not stressed about deadlines and I’ve got a 1-2 day leeway. So as I’m writing this on Monday night and daydreaming about today (Thursday) being the last day of work before break, hopefully nothing crazy has happened in the meantime. Anyway, the look I’m sharing today is the look I wore to see the cherry blossoms over the…

    Pink Confetti Distressed Sweater

    I love confetti sweaters. They’re so fun and the little sprinkles of color are so cute. When I first saw this pink confetti sweater with distressed detailing, I wasn’t sure if I liked it or not. So I didn’t get it for the longest time. But the more I saw it pop up on my social media the more I liked it and then really wanted it. Luckily, when I decided I did indeed want it, my size was still available. I wore a white lace bodysuit underneath to keep it nice and cool with the mild spring-like temps outside. The distressing and loose knit keeps the sweater from being hot, heavy,…

    Small Changes To Your Home That Will Make A Big Difference!

    Source When most of us think of changes that we could make to our home, the first things that come to mind are the really big projects. Things, like putting in an extension or converting a space into a more useable room, are the obvious choices for interior design alterations but they’re also incredibly time-consuming, difficult, and expensive. The truth is that there are plenty of things that you can do in your home that are a whole lot less intensive but that make just as much of a difference overall. With that in mind, here are some small things that will make a big difference in your home.  …

    Flower Branch Dress

    Looking for an Easter dress or a spring dress for a wedding? Or just want a pretty spring dress for work? This dress is perfect. And I don’t use the word perfect lightly here! When I saw this green dress with the flower branch design I had to have it. LOFT has a few items in this pattern. I think blouses and skirts, but I opted for the dress. If you’ve been following me on here for a while then you know that green is my favorite color so that automatically drew me to this dress. Then, it has the prettiest floral pattern on it – flowering branches, which again you…

    Rainbow Stripe Cardigan

    T-Minus 4 days until spring break! I am so excited for a week long break as I am in desperate need of a break. If you’re a teacher and haven’t started spring break yet either, I’m sure you feel the same way! So for today’s blog post I’m sharing my first look from my most recent photoshoot with Lauren. As it’s finally feeling more like spring out, the trees are budding and blooming, and Easter is this weekend – hello pastels! – I’m sharing this rainbow stripe long cardigan. I saw variations of this sweater all last year and loved the look. I finally got one of my own this…

    Branch Brook Park – Cherry Blossom Festival

    If you follow me on Instagram then you might have seen in my stories that I went to Branch Brook Park in Newark yesterday to see the cherry blossoms. The large park has a week long cherry blossom festival every spring and today is the last day. Obviously you can go any time while the trees are in bloom to see them – you’re not limited to this one week – but since cherry blossoms only last about 2 weeks you’ve got to be quick about it. Also the festival just means that each day there is some sort of special event to celebrate the cherry blossoms at the park.…

  • Egg & Pepper Stuffed Toast

    Egg & Pepper Stuffed Toast

    Happy Saturday! Weekends are the only time I can make breakfast that isn’t something I’m grabbing and eating in my car on my way to work. So today I’m sharing a delicious breakfast post with you that you can make for breakfast, brunch, whatever. I saw this video on Facebook a long time ago via Chefclub for this Omelette-in-a-hole. I actually forgot that’s what it was called until I searched for the video just now hence why my blog post name is different. It’s similar to the classic eggs in a basket or egg-in-a-hole, but fancier because it’s got peppers, ham, and cheese. First, I cut up some ham – I just…

    I don’t know anyone who doesn’t love fruit snacks. And what’s great about Welch’s Fruit Snacks is that they’re made with real fruit and fruit is the first ingredient. I was about to buy some more fruit snacks from the store when I was lucky enough to be sent two boxes! One regular box and one box of their Easter fruit snacks, which are the same great fruit snacks but in cute Easter shapes! These are so yummy and they’re made with real fruit and are fat free. And some exciting news for you! Welch’s Fruit Snacks has teamed up with LEGOLAND Resort to give you the chance to win a 2-night…

  • Daffodils

    #fbf Daffodils

    My flashback Friday, #fbf, this time around is from just last weekend. I was taking some outfit photos at my parents house and I took a few photos of my mom’s daffodils that have just come out. I love daffodils and the bright yellow is so cheery! My parents get a ton of deer in our yard and they eat everything. But, someone recently told my mom that deer don’t eat yellow flowers – I haven’t looked in to why that is or if it’s true. But so far, so good!
