2017 is here….and my posting has been non-existent! Our lives have been such a whirlwind with this two-household thing, I haven’t even sent our our Christmas cards that have been rebranded as New Years cards! OOPS!!

But some outfit recaps….starting with my attire for the Main Street Electrical Parade preview party last Thursday & a few photos from the night (what a blast we had!!)

It was so rainy on Friday morning…

Yes, PANTS! The weather has been brutal out here in SoCal, windy, rainy, but we need it so I won’t complain.

Some other outfits:

You can see my recent acquisition in many of the photos above:

If you are on the fence about this bag? Buy it. It’s so adorable, I just love it!! I’m scaling back this year on purchases (my closet is out of room!!) but I highly recommend this one if you’re a diehard Kate Spade fan. 

Happy new year!


17 Hours at Disneyland

That’s right y’all. 17 hours at Disneyland…on a VERY crowded day at that! 

But it was so fun! Especially after two days there the week before. Some recent outfits & fun photos:

Wait, who are these two? Rocky has a partner in crime, Roxy!! They like to adventure:

Space Mountain at 9:30pm? YES PLEASE!!

Stealin a cell phone to call an uber to go back to Disneyland? They did that too…

And poor Roxy riding the Jingle Cruise sans Rocky because this troll mama left him in the hotel….I didn’t want to lose them trying to carry both by myself that day…

I know y’all. I’m ridiculous. I made lots of pie and food this week too:

And it’s officially my FAVORITE time of the year…when the screeners come in:

And I can catch up on all the movies I never had time to go see. Instead of shopping (which I have done well with not shopping all weekend!)

Happy Thanksgiving! 


Cats. CATS?!

Oh no, here we go again….ANOTHER cat collection from Kate Spade! They really nailed it this year:

Oh and did you see this?! I NEED it, but I don’t know if I can justify the cost:

A wedding cake bag!! *dies*  I have to see it in person, if it’s not functional, I will be good and not add it to the collection.

My outfit today:

  1. Dress: Kate Spade
  2. Belt: Kate Spade (way old!)
  3. Shoes: Sam Edelman
  4. Necklace: Banana Republic
  5. Handbag: Kate Spade 

Gahhhhhh, the bag! I wasn’t sure when I saw it on Instagram, I have the Cat Maise from last year and while I LOVE it, it’s too tiny for daily wear. This one however, my big wallet fits in it, so it’s still a small handbag, but totally functional for me! She needs a name though… are still mulling it over. 

My daughter of course has claimed dibs on it….I think she loves cats even more than I do. (And we don’t even HAVE a real cat…allergies, and cakes)  

Until next time,

 It turned out SO GORGEOUS!!!! And yes, those are sugar flowers!

Thursday Blues

So apparently in addition to “no shop January” (OMG is it February yet?!) it’s “no make bed January” as well! Okay, well, it’s this getting up at 5am and driving 3 hours round trip to address car repairs. *sigh*

My outfit today:




Cardigan: Boden
Dress: Kate Spade
Belt: Kate Spade
Shoes: Christian Louboutin

I spent the majority of my afternoon tucked in with my pillows on my bed half asleep-half reading a book. The weather was SO amazing here today (low 70’s!!) the kids spent the afternoon outside!!

Highlight of my day? My service advisor replacing the battery in my key fob, no charge. Can I just say, taking the cars to the dealership is the BEST EVER?


It’s the little things y’all!

Until next time,
