I'm sitting here in full mom-panic-mode. Olivia is turning 5 in May and I have done zilch in terms of planning this birthday. I mean zero. (don't tell her!) As a busy mom, I was pretty proud of myself for getting the evite out. Yeah, that's because for the last five years I've been handwriting and co-designing these gorgeous birthday invitations only for them to end up in someone's trash weeks later. So, we opted to put those dollars towards the party itself. Smart!
There's only one glitch...Olivia wants an Inside Out birthday/pajama/craft/movie party. Dios mio! How am I going to pull this off? Fear not moms...I got your back!

Let's all take a sip of that pinot noir and put our feet up. They got it handled. Wait! Goodie bags....ahhhhh!
Wishing you and your families the coziest, happiest of holidays!
Thank you for all the love + support in 2016! xo
If you're looking for something fun to do with the family, I've got you covered! My clan and I recently had the pleasure of taking a trip to Medieval Times Chicago. Three of us had never been but I knew what was in store. Just a short stint from our house, we made a day of our excursion which might I add - completely tuckered out the little ones just in time for bed. Perfect timing for a giant glass of pinot noir come 8:00pm sharp!
Quality time with my kids is somewhat a challenge before the holidays. There's a lot of craziness and running around...and events. We usually average about two weekends of "absolutely nothing" before we turn into spinning tops. Sound familiar?
Well, recently we got to hit the "pause" button and take our kids to the circus for the first time. Honestly, we had forgotten how good it was! Or maybe as adults, we've come to appreciate what a production it is. And our kids...they loved it!
If you know me at all...you know that I am a huge October advocate. Everything about the month is perfect from food to weather to activities to the clothing! This is the last hurrah before Chicago turns into the frozen tundra. I'm not kidding and I hear we are in for a doozy this year.
Good morning ghosts + goblins! I'm making this a short and sweet post for three reasons:
What you see here is not reality. It's a moment in time captured by a very talented photographer. But that's what family pictures are, right?
I've been getting the same question pretty frequently lately. I must be giving off this vibe like I've got it all handled..and I don't. So when people comment:
"I don't know how you do it all."
September came and went in a flash but there were many memorable moments. It also marks my husband's birthday, a new school year and a change in seasons. Truly my favorite time of year, this month was chockfull of memorable moments and events.
I often interview entrepreneurs and industry pioneers on Fridays but today is going to be a bit different. Today I'm sharing some details about me that you may not have known. Is that possible after blogging so darn long? You be the judge!
Keeping it short + sweet today my friends as there are many sales to be had and many Bloody Mary's to be consumed! I'm sharing the top Labor Day Sales to get after and you can do it all from the comfort of your patio, couch or bed...whichever you prefer. Happy Shopping! xo
...because I just need to put this out there. Some moms are excited for their kids to go back to school. I am not. :(
We just measured you and you grew two more inches! No wonder all your clothes are too short. At this rate we may have to get second jobs to keep up with your closet conundrum.
