I love this: 5 ways to tell your story at home. I think Richard and I are going to start doing this and getting our booties in shape. Well actually we both have skinny butts but the rest of us needs to get in shape. Has anyone heard of it? Done it? The science behind(…)

A Romantic Black & White Bedroom Makeover

A Romantic Black & White Bedroom Makeover

I’ve become totally obsessed with trying to make our bedroom more romantic and relaxing than cluttered and random (like it is now). I’ve decided to go with a black and white theme  because 1.) its simple and 2.) we already have a white comforter. Also I’m obsessed with this Pendleton blanket. I’ve been Pinteresting here(…)

10 Best Romantic Comedies

10 Best Romantic Comedies

I recently saw this post of the top 25 RomCom’s since When Harry Met Sally and also have been reading Mindy Kaling’s book where she talks about how Romantic Comedy’s just aren’t the same anymore and it got me thinking about my favorites. Now, in keeping with the “since When Harry Met Sally” theme these(…)

My Summer Coastal Style

My Summer Coastal Style

I would pretty much wear the same thing every day if I could and on the weekends I basically do. I love summer style on the coast because it is all about layering and not all about wearing the least amount of clothing possible (side eye at Texas). This pretty much sums up my summer(…)

Just Your Average Friday Evening… on the Oregon Coast

Richard came home about an hour early from work on Friday and the kids had taken a really late nap so we decided to head to the beach to tire them out. Sometimes I have to stop and remind myself how amazing it is that we can just hop in the car for a 5(…)

The blogging has been a little light this week because I’ve been 1.) recovering from the WBW insanity, and 2.) crazy busy at my day job. It was actually a really hard week because two days in a row I got home after Ari went to bed. For some reason that just makes me want(…)

Track Your Happiness on a Daily Basis

Track Your Happiness on a Daily Basis

Richard recently discovered this site called Track Your Happiness and I really love the idea behind it. Once you sign up they send you email or text reminders twice a day to “track your happiness”. Right in that moment you have to answer a few simple questions about your current activities and state of mind(…)

Is it Fall yet?

Is it Fall yet?

The weather on the Oregon Coast never really feels like what the average person thinks of as “summer.” We get plenty of sun and gorgeous days but it’s always windy and the cool air coming off the ocean makes you pretty much a little bit cold all of the time. I was just telling Richard(…)
