Pink Sunday


A lot like Black Friday but on neon-colored, preppy printed steriods.

So I’m sure some of you heard of the craziness that was the #lillyfortarget launch yesterday morning. A crashed website, bare clothes racks and a lot of pissed off ladies. As I type this there are already 30,000+ pieces on eBay with obscene markups, but I’m super happy to report that I managed the madness and snagged all sorts of cute stuff that I know I’ll be wearing for years to come.


Missed out on all the fun? Here are a few Lilly Pulitzer items that won’t break the bank.

Lilly love

You know I love me a good collab, so it should come as no surprise that I’ll be waiting outside the doors of Target at 8 a.m. this coming Sunday when the Lilly Pulitzer x Target collection hits stores.

Known for it’s punchy beach prints and most commonly found in the shore states, there is no reason why this land-locked lady can’t pick up a piece or two (ok, so maybe more) for the hot summer months ahead. Here are a few items I’m looking to add to my red cart:


Will you be shopping the collection?

Something French

So we did it! We booked our much-anticipated next trip abroad and this time we are off to France.


Marcus and I have traveled out of the country before and we always said that before we make our way down the road to baby #2, we would like to take off again.

And take off we will this upcoming October for eight glorious days. Our plan is to fly into Paris and spend a few days doing touristy stuff then head south to set up a home base in Avignon. From there we will rent a car and make day trips to surrounding Provencal towns. Sipping lots of amazing wine and feasting on bread and cheese alone along the way. We will end our trip on the rocky beaches of Nice before heading home to kiss our little guy a thousand times because we missed him like crazy.

Have you ever traveled to France? Any suggestions on things we shouldn’t miss?

I know it might be a Southern fashion faux pas to wear seersucker before Memorial Day, but I just couldn’t resist this suit from Target that I picked up as Everett’s Easter attire. I mean, come on!

Our fam is a big fan of seersucker and can be seen sporting it throughout the summer months. Here are some great tips to keep in mind and a few ideas of how you can get seersuckered too!

What’s hatching

Spring is here and with it comes a visit from the Easter Bunny.

We love spending the weekend with family and this year will be no different. We’ll be enjoying some tasty lamb at our annual Easter Eve dinner (we’re hosting this year!), attending morning Mass with my family and two separate feasts during the day.

A furry friend with a taste for carrots will also be descending on the log home for the first time. So in his/her honor, I’ve rounded up a great crop of goodies that any little bunny would love to find in their basket come Sunday morning.

Creative calm

I’ve been working lately on finding a few quiet moments during the day to focus on my creative side. In the past couple of weeks that came in the form of doing some light embroidery and (FINALLY) creating an official logo for my freelance design work.

I have found that doing something with my hands helps me slow down after a busy day of working and toddler rearing. And having a glass of vino near by helps too!

How do you slow down after a long day?
