Valentine Goodie Guide

Tuesday, February 7th, 2012

Making blueberry lemon muffins in heart cupcake papers for my boys to take to preschool today totally put me in the Valentine’s Day spirit.  Reichen and Latham laughed, jumped up and down, and clapped like crazy at the thought of  passing out the sweet treats wrapped in the pretty print to all their friends. 

And that’s the same reaction I hope you have this holiday, but in case your loved one needs a little help, I put together the following Valentine Goodie Guide.

Date Night Duds

Saturday, January 7th, 2012

I love when David strolls through a store and sees a pretty pair of pink heels, he thinks of me.  It makes getting dressed for date night that much more delightful.

30 for 30 Remix – Day 29

Sunday, July 17th, 2011

Finding a something that’s both fashionable and functional is like the clothing equivalent of striking gold: rare but amazing when it happens. Luckily, there’s a wardrobe staple that not only meets the above criteria, but is also the essence of summery chic: the maxi dress. Whether it’s worn in a casual way for day or dressed up for the evening, these must-have frocks not only come in an array of fits and fabrics, they also can be customized to work for a range of tastes.

Just sayin’…

Looking at even more pictures of me!

Josh and Jenny of Solar Photographers just took the most amazing photos of our family and if you click here, you can see them all for yourself. 

And….  thank goodness we only have 3 more days of Kendi’s 30 for 30 Remix Challenge.  I mean, even I’m getting sick of myself.  But if you’re not sick of this shirt, it’s now on super sale at JCrew.

30 for 30 Remix – Day 17

Friday, July 1st, 2011

Lately, my friend’s 5 year old daughter yells that she has a yeast infection whenever her mom sits her in time out. 

And what, you may be wondering, does that have to do with Kendi’s 30 for 30 remix challenge:  absolutely nothing.

But it’s funny, right?

Pairing checks and florals must be good luck.  I mean, what other reason could there be for finally finding the perfect console table for my entry way while wearing this outfit?

There isn’t one.

I love tuelle skirts and when I discovered this one in an adult size, I grabbed it.  Add a pair of silver sneakers, a stripe tank, and slew of silver bracelets and you’ve got a sweet summer outfit.  I mean, why should 5 year old girls have all the fun?

 I love wearing a simple skirt, shirt, and flip flops on a hot and muggy day.  Holy cow, it’s hot here!  I think I’m going to melt.  Seriously.

30 for 30 Challenge – Day 30

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

Drum roll please….   HERE IT IS – my 30th outfit for Kendi’s 30 for 30 Remix Challenge. 

Of course, I wish the ensemble were a little more exciting and I wish my pose didn’t look so incredibly awkward, but to quote my hubby when he never knows exactly what to say next – “it is what it is.”

And here are the 3 stinky boys behind the camera.  David snapped every. single. shot. and he says he had fun doing it.  But when I asked him if he wanted to do it every. single. day. so I could start my own style blog, he said, “Um, not so much.” 

I hope you enjoyed following my 30 for 30 Remix Challenge as much as I did doing it.  And I really appreciate all the fun and thoughtful comments everyone wrote every day.  Thank you.  You all know how to make a girl feel good.

Starting now, you will be returned to regular 3 Stinky Boys and Me programing.

I know you missed David’s husbandisms.  I know you did.  Admit it.   

Of Kors I Want It

Of Kors I want this piece of acrylic goodness I spotted in Lucky Magazine.  Of Kors I do.

Watch Out Michele!

Wednesday, July 8th, 2009

When ever there’s a crowd swarming a Nordstrom’s jewelry counter, I elbow my way to the front.  My pulse quickens, I get a little sweaty, and I just have to see what every one is gawking at.  As I peel layer after layer of people back like an onion, I see what they see – watches.  But not just any watches:  Michele watches. 


They are gorgeous.  I have never heard of the brand Michele, which is odd since I consider myself somewhat of a watch connoisseur.  I guess Nordstrom realized the brand needed more exposure too since they decided to host a 4 hour trunk show for the accessory company. 

I all but slobbered over the classic art deco time pieces.  With its clean lines, 108 hand-set white diamonds, and mother-of-pearl face, the bracelet is every thing a girl could ever want in a watch.  It is just jaw dropping, but so is the price.  When I looked at the tag, I thought $250 was a bargain.  The sales girl tried to stifle a giggle when I asked why the time piece was only that much.  She kind of rolled her eyes when she replied that $250 was just the cost of the band.  The watch itself cost more than $1,200. 

As I sadly placed the watch back on its velvet pad for others to paw, I thought that there’s got to be other watches out there that don’t cost as much that are just as pretty. 


I really like the Reactor collection of watches.  This two toned piece costs $350 – which translates into less than 25% of the Michele watch.  With its sleek lines, intricate detailing and polished finish, it’s a realistic runner-up to the luxury brand.  You can find it at Dillards.


Take a look at this black leather strap watch from Bulova.  I have never owned a watch like this but I think it’s about time I do.  You can find it at Kohls for $250, but that place is always, always, always having a half off sale, or a buy one get one free sale, or the best sale of the year sale- so I’m going to wait it out.
