A Tale of Two Living Rooms

When we moved into our home (almost two years ago now!!!!!), Tom and I debated over which space would be our living room. He voted to have our living room in the front of the house, I voted the back. The ceilings are high in the back of the house, it’s out of the way […]

Sunday Not-So-Scaries: August 2

Happy Sunday, y’all! I’ve been having a lot of lazy Sundays lately and I’m not mad about it. There’s something really special about taking your time and doing absolutely nothing (if that’s available to you). I’m really glad I can slow down these days and just relax. And here we are in August! Not a […]

Summer Reading: July

Happy August! I’d ask how we’re already here, but honestly, the days are blurring together and the only way I know it’s August is it’s HOT HOT HOT here in NJ right now. Anyway, I’ve been getting my reading ON, y’all! Just ripping through stories left and right and loving it. What’s better than sitting […]

I’m Growing an Avocado Tree

I’m a millennial, so of course I love me some avocado. On toast, on eggs, on burgers, on salads, all by itself. I have a problem. Back in May, quarantine boredom struck me (as it does) and I decided to try propagating an avocado pit. It’s progress has been so fun to watch these last […]

Natural Deodorants I’m Trying This Summer

Natural deodorant is something I’ve been dabbling in off and on over the last few years. But once the summer hits I usually ditch it for fear it won’t work in this unforgivable Jersey heat and humidity and go right back to my tried and true conventional deodorant. But since I’m not really going anywhere […]

Simple Overnight Oats

Breakfast is often a really elaborate meal for me. I love making a big production out of breakfast because it used to be the only meal I ate at home when I was working in the office overnight. But now that I’m home all the time, the energy to whip up a spinach and egg […]

Sunday Not-So-Scaries: July 12

Woo… Another week, how are we doin’? Things are starting to come along at our house right now which is really exciting. We moved in nearly two years ago and hadn’t been able to make the changes we envisioned when we bought it. At the beginning of March we started renovating our living/dining rooms but […]

What Happened When I Ordered Plants Online

For years I’ve daydreamed about becoming a plant lady, but I always thought I was just never destined to have a green thumb. I’ve killed numerous plants over the years, even a bamboo plants which I was certain was indestructible. How sad? The summer after we bought our home I decided to finally give gardening […]

Summer Reading: June

The biggest perk of being at home all the time and never leaving my house again (crying) is that I can read SO much more than I did before when I was commuting over 3 hours every single day. I’m a little late to the party, but I wanted to share the books I read […]

Back Again

This year has been so wild. I can’t even get all of the words out to describe it. For the first leg of the spring, I took a break from blogging to take care of my mental health as Covid was running rampant in my state. We are mostly contained here in N.J., thankfully, but […]
