Why I Love My Totally Imperfect Mom Hands

I’ve been slightly un-inspired in the nail department lately. I look at my hands and nails and think, “I should do some fun nail art or swatch some polishes I haven’t swatched yet…” and then I proceed to find a closet that needs to be organized. Or I take a nap instead. Today as I was scrubbing the dirty walls in my sons bedroom I looked at my nails and realized, I don’t always have to write about perfect, cute stuff. It’s ok to embrace imperfections. I totally, honestly believe …

My 5 Favorite Mom Swimsuits (and of course polishes to match!)

I love internet swimsuit shopping! I could browse Victoria’s Secret and Orchid Boutique Bikini for hours…which is so weird because wearing a swimsuit is not one of my favorite things to do.

Once we reached Easter I knew the baby was just right around the corner. This year has flown by!

How do you celebrate Easter? Do you have some fun plans in the making? We are going to go to my little sister’s house in Pioche …

The Sense of Smell

The Amazing Sense of Smell

In my past life, I was a store manager at Bath and Body Works. It was probably the longest year of my life and one of the most difficult jobs I’ve ever done but I learned so much and don’t regret doing it. All in all it was a good experience and it paid the bills during the months after my husband and I left our restaurant business at The Fairway Grill. You can read that whole story HERE.
