Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Friday Finds

TOPSHOP Moon Suede Biker Jacket

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is now open to all Nordstrom cardholders, so I rounded up my picks by category for this edition of Friday Finds for early shoppers (if you don’t have one you can shop on 8/19.) The best deals during this sale are on fall wardrobe staples, classic items, and beauty and baby goods that typically aren’t marked down.

3 Best Underwear

I intended on publishing this on National Underwear Day last week, but we were hit with a hurricane and lost power and WiFi for a week. One of my best friends was visiting me from Portland, so we turned lemons into shandy and used our off the grid time to reconnect and read books like true pilgrims. We finally got power today, so I’m back, and figured I should go ahead and toast the holiday that was. Better late than…

Moody Blue Grey Bar Pantry

Moody Blue Grey Bar Pantry

I’m so excited to share my moody blue grey bar pantry with you today. I don’t feel like it’s quite done because I am on the hunt for the perfect odd sized vintage rug (something like this). I love the contrast of the pink that is in there now, but it is too small for the floor space so it’s a placeholder for now. The existing cabinetry was beautiful and in great shape, but needed a paint job and some…

Why We Decided To Have A Third Baby

Why We Decided To Have A Third Baby

When you tell most people you’re having your first baby, they typically say, “congratulations!” When you have your second baby, it’s usually the same. When you’re having your third, you might hear “I got a guy” or questions along the lines of “was it planned,” or even a “you’re insane.” I have to acknowledge the privilege I’ve been granted in life to be able to grow our family. While it took years for us to have our first child, we’ve…
