Utility layers

Good morning and happy Thursday! Hard to believe we’re already at the end of February. I don’t know about you, but I am so ready for summer weather. This winter/spring has been cold and super rainy. Can’t complain though, California desperately needs it. In the meantime, I’m staying layered in my favorite jacket. There’s something so effortlessly cool about a utility jacket. And while I tend to lean towards more sophisticated and neutral pieces, I’m having fun stepping outside my comfort zone and doing something a little more fun!

Hope you’re having a great week and thanks for stopping by!

Toddler snacks

For the most part, my daughter is a pretty good eater. But like most 3 year olds, she goes through phases where she only wants gold fish, chicken nuggets or a sandwich. This can be so frustrating, because I want her to be eating healthy food that will keep her nourished and feeling good! Ah, the struggle we all experience as parents, right? Thank goodness for Pinterest and the never ending inspiration it provides. I searched for “healthy toddler snacks” and was instantly excited to try out all the recipes I pinned. You can follow me here on Pinterest to see what I’ve been pinning. Here are the recipes that I have tried so far and received two thumbs up from my daughter!

Broccoli cheddar muffins – not going to lie, I ate one of these as soon as it came out of the oven. Have to make sure it tasted Ok, right? So good!

Pizza rolls – this was the biggest hit. I used Trader Joe’s pizza dough to make my life easier.

Peanut butter cheerio clusters – these are seriously good! It’s a nice quick bite in the morning especially if you need to take something to go. Warning: can be a bit messy.


Good morning and happy Monday! I hope you all have today off work to celebrate President’s Day (and let’s be honest, all the amazing sales going on!). Want to hear something kind of crazy? Today is my due date…little did I know my little boy would come three weeks early. And while I’m back into my old clothes, they certainly don’t fit exactly how they did before just yet. In the meantime, I’m living in these cargo pants.

While out shopping yesterday, I saw these and fell in love. The material is so soft and creates a nice, relaxed version of jeans for the weekend. I also want to add these to my collection!
