I saved the best for FIRST - a butter crock.  (Or if you want to be fancy, a "french butter dish")

After I published my Capsule Wardrobe post on Wednesday, I noticed that it was my 100TH POST.  Whaat?!  Had I known, I would have planned something awesome.  But...I didn't. Sorry.  I thought about writing some sort of "100 things" post like Grace's 31 things, and then I thought better of it.  You're welcome.

My mom and sisters came last week for Emeric's birthday and Halloween, and we partied like it was 2014.

Yep, we all got the crazy bug.

My sister has the full photo rundown here :)

My First and Last Day as a Fashion Blogger

I have a hilarious confession to make.

So I saw Caroline from Un-Fancy was asking for people to apply to be a guest blogger, and I thought "Hey! I should try that!"  There was only one requirement I wasn't sure about: being comfortable behind the camera.

This is how my story begins.  Spoiler alert: it all goes downhill from here.

Fall Capsule Wardrobe

Before I begin, if you have never heard of the "Capsule Wardrobe" concept, you can read more about it here.

I was pretty excited to read about this closet minimalism movement - FINALLY a trend came along that I was already an expert in.  35-40 items for a season?!  Try 35-40 items for the whole year.  That's right.  I'm hardcore.  And that probably includes maternity and nursing stuff.  I have a weird hang up about spending money on clothes and I've never been really uhh...good at fashion. To put it mildly. Let's just say that in college I was known on campus as "the girl that wears skirts over her jeans and crazy patterned pants" (You know what I think? I was just a decade ahead of my time.)

Love Multiplies: Why I'm blogging again

So - as everyone knows, I fell off the face of the blogging earth a long time ago.

There was this blissful postpartum grace period after having Emeric when he was still sleeping a whole lot and I was feeling soooo good as compared to being pregnant and on house arrest due to preterm labor woes and I felt like I could conquer ALL THE THINGS.

Like taking my 3 children 3 and under out to Panera's 3 days postpartum.
And apparently I had to document this momentous occasion.
Say "broccoli cheddar soup in a bread bowl!!"
