Strawberry Pancakes

Pancakes are the perfect meal for anytime of the day. I consider them an “everything-but-the-kitchen-sink” meal. My favorite pancake flavor is blueberry but this new recipe has quickly risen in the ranks. This recipe for Strawberry Oatmeal Pancakes is an easy recipe that makes pancakes possible when your food supply is limited. Recipe: 1 cup…

Spring Clutch

In my Easter basket this year I found a beautiful orange clutch. This clutch from Francesca’s is perfect for Spring and will transition beautifully into Fall. I also love the size of this clutch because it’s small and narrow enough so I have to limit what I put in it; and for one who excels at…

iPhone Life

1. Weekends home with my family include many games of Mexican Train. I’m pretty sure this is the game I won. 2. Swimming season has officially begun!! Ruby just couldn’t wait until all the ice was off the lake to go swimming after her toy. 3. Yes, this is a photo of me sliding down…

Easter Rolls On

I don’t know about you guys but I am still in an Easter feast food coma. Some other ways to describe my current state of being… – I went on a nice long rollerblade in the rain today and later that day I felt obligated to go on a 5 run (but have no fear, the run…

Day to Night

The easiest way to transition a dress from day to night is by adding sparkle and a new jacket. Having that piece that is one in the same is the most convenient way to do so. My go-to day outfit ALWAYS includes a colorful patterned scarf. I like them because they are a lot more casual…

Spring, Where Art Thou?

Due to the fluctuating Midwestern weather I am not able to wear anything that reflects the season we are supposed to be in. In case you were wondering no, that season is not Winter. It’s Spring.  Here’s an outfit I’d rather be wearing right now:   Mint Coat, Purple Dress, Blue Wedges, Gold Necklace, Sun hat

King of All Egg Sandwiches

A great and easy way to start the day is with an egg sandwich. They are quick and easy to make and can pack a lot of protein and flavor. My latest favorite egg sandwich is, one egg over hard with melted cheddar cheese, avocado slices and sriracha sauce between two slices of rye bread….

Casual Friday

The best decision I made in my past two semesters in college is making a schedule with a goal of having no classes on Friday. And let me tell you, it’s wonderful. I sleep in, workout, do some cleaning and just lounge around all day until finally starting homework right before dinner. With no classes…

Oxfords in Springtime

Oxfords are the perfect shoe for Spring because they come in so many different colors and patterns and they cater to more activities when compared to sandals. For example, bike riding down the boardwalk; you don’t have to fully commit to wearing socks but your feet are better protected and supported. I don’t know about…

Liebster or Lobster?

Oh hello there! Today I have discovered in my inbox sat a comment awaiting my approval. I opened up the email and saw that Rebecca from Sweet & Simple Life Blog had nominated me for a Liebster Award!! A Liebster Award is an award given from one blogger to another to promote new or up-and-coming blogs in…

Frozen Hot Chocolate

I have a ritual of making hot chocolate or tea immediately after dinner to satisfy my sweet tooth to keep me from snacking later on in the evening. However Spring is in the air and I was looking for a cool alternative so today I blended up a batch of frozen hot chocolate. To me frozen hot…
