Unicorn Magic

Do you remember when you were a little girl and unicorns could be real? If you wished hard enough that the next time you saw a pasture of horses you could really see one glimmering horn peeking out. As we grow up the belief starts to fade you know along with Santa, The Tooth Fairy and The Easter Bunny. We are told that it’s all make believe and unicorns aren’t real. Then you become a mom and have a daughter that loves unicorns and realize just like all the rest, the magic is in believing.  ...

Puffer Vests

Let’s talk puffer vests today! This is a fall and winter staple for me because I can throw on a long sleeve tee and one of these lightweight vests and I’m good pretty much through January. I have owned both Old Navy and J.Crew vests so I figured this year I would compare the two. I  ...

Best Elfa system

I have had many of you ask about home organization ideas for your closet, playroom and well everywhere! I am going to start with one of my favorite organization systems because it can be used a ton of places (and we do). It’s called the ELFA Start-A-Stack from The Container Store. I know  ...

Magnolia

Earlier this week I met my best friend at Magnolia Market in Waco to do a few more pictures for the blog. It is conveniently half way between both of our houses in Austin and Fort Worth. I know I am lucky that it is within driving distance and I have been there quite a few times, but this time  ...

Billie’s Lessons

So recently I have been trying to push my daughter to read more chapter books and harder material to advance her reading skills. I was told by a few friends to check out the Junie B. Jones books for early chapter book readers. We got the first grade set and as we started reading book one and  ...

11 piece Fall work capsule under $250

I will never forget my first Christmas after I started my corporate career, it was one of the lowest times of my life. I worked both Christmas Eve and the day after Christmas so going to see either of my parents out of town was out of the question. My dad at the time was in the hospital and had  ...

Target Kids Home Sale

When we moved to DFW my daughter was 2.5 years old and it was about that time that we moved her into a big girl bed. I will never forget when we went to Pottery Barn Kids so that she could pick out “special” sheets for her bed (she picked ballerinas). We also picked out this classic  ...
