For weeks, the husband and I have been shopping for tile, looking at cabinets, driving around town looking at stone, or one of the other 1 million things that come with a remodel. This weekend was normal and I loved it! This weekend I went…

12 Classy Nude-Tone Shoes for the Office

When I was packing for the trip to Miami a couple of weeks ago (you can see the photos from the trip here), I realized how worn out many of my shoes looked. I work from my home office during the week instead of making a commute to a traditional office. I have been doing this for a little over a year.

Weekly Cleaning Challenge | Clean the Silverware Drawer

Christmas is over and New Year’s has passed. It is time to take down all of the Christmas decor. It is tradition to take your tree down on New Year’s day, but I know a lot of people that start the day after Christmas. I just didn’t have that kind of energy this holiday season.
