A Nest Update: May ’17

We are just getting back from a trip to Branson, MO where we spent some quality family time with my side.  It was special to see my parents, grandparents, siblings and nephews.  Lucy Was much more steady in her walking on the trip which was fun for the fam to see!   With that all being said, I really am anxious to update you all on what is going on in our nest.   1. Today we are beginning Whole 30.  For those of you who haven’t heard of this trendy way of  ...

Spring 2017 Capsule Wardrobe

It may be behind my original timeline but finally, finally my Spring capsule wardrobe is completed.  I had ordered a few tops from Swap (the online thrift store I am obsessed with) and wanted to make sure they worked well with the other items I have before posting! I am sharing my blouses, bottoms, dresses, and third layers- things like tee shirts, shoes, and undergarments I just can’t limit! Since my job has changed, I have to be able to dress for the office as well as outfits for  ...

Weekly Review

Here are a few things that I have enjoyed this week: Read: photo via At Home Blog Joanna Gaines wrote “A Letter to Moms” around Mother’s Day last year that still resonates with me.  Even if you’re not a mom, I think it is a great article to understand what the mothers before us have dealt with and gone through.  So encouraging!

Greenhouse Shenanigans

Sometimes, at the end of winter, I like to go to my favorite greenhouses just purely for therapeutic effects.  But this trip yesterday was actually for work purposes- how cool is that?! When shopping for greens, I go to my two favorite local shops.  One being Edwards Greenhouse, where we went yesterday, and the other being 36th Street Garden Center.  The jungle-like atmosphere is good for the soul, not to mention the hair and skin!  I also greatly appreciate the merchandising of both shops-  ...

Our Texas Trip

Last week we got back from a long weekend in Texas with family.  We made some good memories playing with cousins, visiting great grandma and grandpa, hanging out with aunts and uncles, and winning over the hearts of “Ama and Papa” (although I’m sure their hearts have already been won!).  I always come home reminded that Boise is now where I belong but with a little ache and hole in the heart for the friends and family left behind in the South!    We  ...
