Fashion, Food, Desserts, being a 30-something mom is exciting!


Clamshells! I was asked to do these adorable French Macarons for a baby shower, they are sooooo adorable!!



The pink are strawberry (strawberry creme filling, it’s AMAZING!) and the blue are salted caramel. Mmmm. I am only sorry I didn’t take photos of the process, it was crazy! I made a template and then we traced 96 individuals on parchment paper, then piped on the non-traced side. It was insane. But they came out beautifully!!

My outfit today, another nod to the stripe & glitter theme:






Sweater: Kate Spade
Skirt: Vintage (I have 3 different Navy vintage pencil skirts. But this one has pockets!)
Shoes: Kate Spade

And of course my wise owl Quinn bag was dragged around with me today. I feel like I’m in a bit of a rut, or at least headed that way, clothing wise. I find myself wanting to wear the same 7 things, yet the idea of getting rid of anything is terrifying! Looking back through my blog photos, I seem to go through stages, fashion wise. I’m not an expert, just a gal who likes to wear skirts and dresses. Who started a blog to get OUT of a rut.


And to “prove” I can be crazy mom? I wore pants with socks and glittery keds to a CAMP in the mountains last night:


What you don’t see is my goofy earmuffs, huge fur coat, and of course a huge statement necklace no one could see, because of my scarf. And hot pink gloves. I looks ridiculous, but it was 27 degrees and the wind chill made it feel like 20. The only part of me that got cold were my toes. We went up to visit the ROTC kids and surprise them after a long hard week at camp. My son & husband “bonding” (read: ex Naval Officer learning Air Force swear words. Or so it seemed!!)


Brr. I’m cold just thinking about it! And now I want to go ice skating. Maybe next week!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Until next time,
