My favorite book…ever!

I firmly believe that when you find something good, like something really good, you should shout it from the rooftops and share it. For me that something really good, maybe even really great is the book Girl Wash Your Face by Rachel Hollis. To be completely honest with you I have no idea how I…

Practicing Gratitude

I saw this amazing post on Facebook from Robin Roberts and she said she believes “optimism is a muscle that gets stronger with use,” and I just can’t stop thinking about it. It was such a great way to look at optimism and made me realize and reflect a lot. A few weeks ago, I…

Make every day count…

This morning has been a sad morning for me and many others in my little PSU/Clinton community. On Facebook I was reminded that 2 years ago we were packing up our apartment in Hoboken to move into our house. Part of me feels like it was such a long time ago, but then there are…

Weekend Recap & Potatoes on the Grill

I didn’t have a chance to post yesterday because I was busy busy trying to paint our deck, and receive a shipment for work. When we bought our house the previous owners painted the deck a bright orange, so it was  always on our list of things to do.  We painted it a medium brown…

Aspiring Gardener

One of my favorite things about living in Summit is that we have some outdoor space.  We live on a pretty small lot, but we think it is just perfect.  It is just enough grass where we feel like we have some, however it is not too much to the point that we have to…

Loving our Table!

It has been a few months now since we purchased our dining room table for our house and I am still so in love with it!  It is perfect because it is large, but not too large, and if we have a bigger group coming over it has a removable leaf that can be added….

Weekend Recap- California Closets Install!

This past weekend was one of the best in my life because my California Closet was installed!  My super awesome husband got me this present for Christmas this year and I couldn’t be happier.  I always dream about being organized, but I have to be honest and say, I am a person that isn’t easily organized.  Part…

Seasons of Love with Thor & Bentley…

So, I woke up this morning bright and early!  I love mornings where waking up isn’t difficult.  It is probably due to the fact that I went to bed at 10 pm.  I tend to be more of a night owl by nature.  I actually write a lot of my blogs at night and then…

Weekend Recap…Getting Organized, Puppies, and Surprises!

This weekend was quite fun!  Saturday morning started with a consultation with California Closets, which was my big Christmas gift from my wonderful hubby.  I love our house, I really do, but my closet was a bit of a challenge.  For those of you that haven’t seen our house, we have dormers on the front,…

Bring it 2016!

Today will mark my first day back at work in the New Year!  It is crazy to me how long weekends sometimes seem shorter than a regular weekend.  All in all though, I have to say this year started off on the very best possible note. Dan and I had so much fun celebrating New…

Weekend Recap…Christmas Style!

I decided to take a couple days off from blogging so that I could spend time with my family and so that I could prepare for hosting the holiday.  We had a great couple of days and a very successful Christmas Day. One of the details that I was excited for my family to see…

First Married Christmas!

It’s hard to believe that in a few days Dan and I will have been married for 3 months and dating for almost 5 years!  In some ways it feels like the time has flown since we met, but then when I think about all that has happened in those almost 5 years, it makes…
