Lately - Wearing, Cooking, Reading, Celebrating

Dear Readers, what is up? I hope this last little bit of winter finds you well. I'm thrilled to be rounding the corner into spring.

I last left off with my February goals.

I 100 % failed. It was all downhill when my husband got a horrific case of the flu in early February.

Honestly, him being sick gave us both a new lease on life. When I had to do it all with zero back up, the truth came out that he pulls his weight around here. I knew this, but it really came to the surface when he was bedridden for a week! Also, I missed his company so much.

Thankfully no one else got sick.


Other than that, it has been life as usual - chaotic, messy, hilarious, etc. We have had some great weather and I'm already feeling spring fever.

Every year after Christmas I get so tired of wearing black and grey and I do a little wardrobe refresher. I'm still hard core doing the 10 item wardrobe method.

Mid January, I spent a morning in Old Navy picking out a few winter to spring things. My go-to uniform this season has been jeans, a floral top, and a cardigan. Thank you Sezane for all the inspiration. Do y'all know about this gorgeous French brand?

I haven't bought anything from there but it's definitely influencing my style.


Also, lately I've been cooking like mad. A couple of months ago I got an itch to find some sort of part time job (because I started feeling like the only mom I know without some sort of side gig - this is silly, I know).

Anyway, I came to the conclusion that I'm a true home economist and if I just spend my time cooking and making sure we don't waste food then I am practically "making" money....by saving it.

Also, as much as I can, I cook once and we eat twice. Pictured here is my favorite enchilada casserole recipe.


I'm slowly reading through Boundaries with Kids, and I'm loving it. It's about setting limits with kids and showing them how to take responsibility for themselves and their actions.


I love these 4 love bugs. For Valentine's day I got them each a pair of sunglasses from the Dollar Tree. And some bubble gum. I am the biggest fan of not spending money on my kids because they destroy everything! I think $8.80 is not bad for a little V-day celebration. They were thrilled.

Easter will be about the same.

So what's up with you? Hope to be back soon!

  1. I like all your clothes! Navy is a classic winter to spring transition color. I think I see some of that in two of your shirts. Very nice!
