delicious girl scout cookies.

Girl Scout Cookie Season is upon us. Go here to find cookies near you. Worried about those New Year’s Resolutions? Don’t you know that sweets for a good cause are consequence-free? No fat grams, no calories. Really. Trust me. I promise. I go for Samoas. And Thin Mints, from the freezer. Which do you go for?

storage solutions.


I love Cookie Magazine. I love everything about it, especially the clever decorating and organization ideas for kids rooms. I spied this little nook in Cookie a little while ago and fell in love with it; we have so many little cars and trains roaming around our house that would love to find a home in a little zipper cases like these.

beautiful farmhouse sink from cottage living magazine.

I need, want, must have this farmhouse sink. Or one very much like it. Isn’t it perfect?


Maybe it’s just the whole kitchen I’m coveting.

personalized onesies.

Alma has officially given birth to her first baby. A boy. I’m gearing up to deliver my second, also a boy. Thus, we can’t help but be preoccupied with everything baby–espeically clothes. This time around, I’m finding it much easier to get sweet, snuggly, non-cartoonish infant clothes that are boyish without being silly. All thanks to creative mommies like Leslie (mom of 3!) of Mingo Design. Ideal baby clothing with a little bit of spunk, just the way I like it. And the onesies? I think the softest and heftiest I’ve yet discovered. The color schemes are fresh but also traditional and quite simply, adorable. Even more adorable when personalized, which Leslie is happy to do. I also think the little coordinating caps are just precious! Can’t wait to dress my new little guy in Mingo cuteness. Sheesh, even the name is cute.

sugarplum dreams.

Sugarplum Dreams is an adorable store {with a new online presence} featuring impeccable customer service to cater to your every need. Sugarplum offers everything you could ever want in a baby and children’s boutique: special occasion clothing, decor, toys, keepsakes.

My personal favorite toy is the Twilight Turtle, a fun little nightlight in the form of a turtle that changes colors between amber, green, and blue. It shuts itself off so you won’t waste battery time, and it casts 8 constellations on the ceiling of your little one! So cute!

Head over to Sugarplum Dreams to see what all the fuss is about. You won’t be disappointed.

fitness magazine 30-day fitness challenge.


Victor got me a subscription to Fitness Magazine last year, and I was a bit chagrined until I opened the cover and started reading. It’s fantastic! I’ve never met an issue I didn’t like, and I’m inspired to be a healthier person every time I read. It’s not one of those fitness magazines, it meets every woman at her level and strives to help her improve.

Their most recent issue has a 30-day fitness challenge for women everywhere. 30-days to lose 10 pounds. I’m in. I’ve gained 10 lbs. since starting this website, and my general lack of fitness is getting to me. So, will you join me in the 30-day fitness challenge? If we don’t lose 10 lbs. so what? At least we’ll be getting more physical, more healthy, more conscientious. And there *might* be some sweet goodies {the non-food kind} involved at the finish line.

Are you with me?
