Labor Day Party Inspiration

      Click on pictures for image link.   We are heading to Newport Beach to celebrate Labor Day, the unofficial end of summer. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend the weekend. We will be with our family and some good friends, and I hear the weather looks perfect. I also […]

Our Weekend

Happy Friday! We are planning a date night and I know exactly what I am wearing! A beautiful black wrap dress with cute heels and my favorite earrings. My husband and I are very aware our days as a party of two are limited and we are trying to make it out for some adult […]

Summer Weekend Ideas

Hello people! School is either already in session or about to start, which means summer is coming to an end. So this is the weekend to review that summer must-do list and cross a few more items off your list! I did not do as many summer activities as I usually would have, but I will […]

Back to School Favorites for Fall

Even though I am not “going back to school” this fall, I still have my eye on some beautiful desk accessories and supplies. I always loved shopping for back to school supplies. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on crisp new notepads, agendas, and pretty pencils! I loved being organized and having binders and dividers […]

Happy National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day!

Happy National Chocolate Chip Cookie Day. I celebrate this day every year! Ha, more like weekly. My husband is a huge fan of the chocolate chip cookie with vanilla ice cream so we have them around more than I would like to admit. Who am I to complain though?! 😉 It is nice to bake your […]

Gilroy Garlic Festival

When you live less than 30 minutes from Gilroy, a town known for garlic, one must venture to the annual Gilroy Garlic Festival. If you enjoy garlic, this is the festival for you! We enjoyed a variety of foods and walked around for about 2.5 hours. I would highly recommend you get there when the […]

National Daiquiri Day

Happy Friday! Time for my monthly public service announcement. This Saturday, July 19 is National Daiquiri Day!! I think the daiquiri, while full of calories, is still a quintessential summer drink. They are refreshing, light, colorful, and oh-so-festive with fruit on top or an umbrella. I might get a little crazy and partake in a […]

Reason #20001 I Love California

Look at this divine Crimson Quinoa Salad from Calafia Cafe in Palo Alto. This plate is art and I didn’t even want to dig it because of the beauty of the dish. I love eating healthy, colorful, fresh, and local vegetables! You just feel so good after a salad like this one. The salad was […]

Lazy Afternoon

My belly is really growing. Over the last three weeks, I have felt my stomach stretching and my baby bump is much more full. It was clearly time to invest in a few more maternity pieces, as I enter the end of my second trimester. I needed an outfit that I could run errands in, […]

Celebrate National Pick Blueberries Day

Blueberries hold a very special place in my heart. During the summer, my grandma, my sister, and I, and sometimes one of my gram’s friends would come along with us to an orchard in upstate New York and we would spend an afternoon picking blueberries. This was hard work, but we took our time, eating […]
