• Calling all t-shirt hoarders!

    Aeropostale is having a major sale right now, and while I’m pretty sure I’ve outgrown — out-matured? — 85% of their inventory, I really love their basics. Right now, tees and camis are buy one get TWO free. I’ve been stockpiling their v-necks when I can find them on sale, since I basically live in t-shirts and jeans through the workweek.

  • Sunday Best

    Last Sunday, the spring cleaning bug bit C; he came home from the gym with my father-in-law’s pressure washer and big plans to clean the exterior of the house.

It started with the tiniest of headaches and an itchy throat, and ended… well, badly.

  • bloomin’ bloomers

    I was thisclose to giving these shorts the boot during my last closet cleaning. Sometimes my compulsive purging leads to lots of regret, so I’ve made a new rule for myself: keep the cast-off bags around the house for at least four weeks, then go through them one last time before dropping them in the

  • oh, hi!

    Whew, I really dropped the updating-the-blog ball last week! I was a little distracted. We had our biggest wedding of the season last Saturday for a very special couple, Vera and Mikal. It was the first big wedding I’ve taken the reigns on, start-to-finish. I wanted everything to be perfect. We spent three days designing
