Fashion Finds

Have you been searching for steals and deals lately?

Here are some fashion finds I’m liking:

The sweater, dress, and blouse are from here. They are having 40% off this weekend.

I like the Sorel snow boots – especially the black laces.  They can be found here.

The Lindsey Plate Frye boots are on different websites, but can be found here.

Happy shopping!

Just Breathe

Oh, how I have enjoyed this break. Taking time to organize  and prepare for this past holiday made it especially enjoyable.  I plan to carry this idea over into 2015.  Life  is not always predictable, neat, or organized.

So, when I come home, it helps me to relax and unwind if I have systems in place that help me to manage all the “stuff” that life throws at you.

Welcome 2015!

Here’s hoping you all had a nice holiday with your loved ones. We spent lots of time with family, as well as time out hiking the trails for some exercise and fresh air.  We  are hoping to have dodged the flu that has been going around – let’s keep our fingers crossed for now.

Meet our latest member of the family, “Mufasa”.  Citylogger and I met him while on a walk a while ago.  In fact, he was standing only feet away and we didn’t realize it until we looked up.  He’s quite regal, and quite large.

Here’s hoping your 2015 is a good one:)

Getting There….

I’m sure you are busy with your holiday preparations.  I made a promise this year that I would do a little each weekend so as not to feel overwhelmed and rushed.

So, we have a little sparkle going on outside.  The weather has been mild and that makes it easier to work outside.  I need to learn how to take better photos at night:)  That’s what happens when you leave for work in the dark, and come home in the dark!

Hope your holiday preparations are going well!

Winter Storm 2014

If you can get past the cold temperatures, and the blustery wind chills, travel bans, and not being able to find your driveway….

If you have heat, electricity, and enough food stocked in the pantry….

And if you don’t really have to be anywhere because they’ve closed school for the third day in a row….

It really can be a beautiful sight to behold.  Here’s hoping you are safe and warm wherever you are.

I’ve never  written a post like this, but thought it might be fun to give it a try.  If you’re like me, this time of the year comes around and you’re not sure what to buy for the favorite people on your list.  I’m always looking for inspiration.  So here are some things that I am liking.  Let me know what you think and perhaps share some of your ideas.  Then we can check them off our shopping list together!

First up, for those who like to cook:
