What’s New


It was a busy week last week, and this week was even crazier, so this is just a little recap on life.

Went with Lulu on a field trip to the Fredrick Meijer Gardens, one of our favorite places.


That’s my little cutie.

If you’ve never been to the gardens its worth a look. Their exhibits are always changing, the kids area outside is a wonderful place to burn some energy in the summer, and one of my favorite exhibits is their Christmas trees from around the world every winter.

Brandon was gone all last week so when he got home we ended the week with a date night.

My date night attire. Found the sweater at TJMaxx earlier that day. Jewelry is Stella & Dot.

Maru Sushi is Brandon and my favorite date night location. It was the first time we sat at the bar and I recommend it, they give you free appetizers 🙂

My favorite rolls:

Madagascar, Soy Joy, and Miss Saigon. At least once you have to order the Sexy Bacon.

As I previously mentioned, this week was crazy (I had three Stella & Dot Parties, holidays are crazy busy in such a good way), so the girls are I made cupcakes with my mom yesterday to unwind. It was from a box, with premade frosting, it was so easy and the girls could basically do it themselves. We passed most the cupcakes out to our neighbors to ensure we don’t go into a sugar coma.

All frosted and decorated, Addy is turning into a pro.

As a side note, the Candy Corn flavored icing is one of the worst flavors I’ve ever tried. I wish I can eaten a cupcake before we frosted them, but the upside is that I no longer want a cupcake.

Until next time! xo, Kate

Friday Fashion Rewind

Its Friday!!! I’m in Chicago with my beautiful sister-in-law Kate, we are currently working from an amazing restaurant called The Blue Door Farm Stand (Pics to come). She has a ‘real job’ in sales, she just moved to Chicago this summer and I’m listening to her make a sales call and can’t believe how mature she is! Okay that’s cheesy, but its the truth. I’m next to her on a rustic blue bench working on my new ‘job’, my blog. So thanks for joining with me today.

ITS FRIDAY! I’m headed home later today, with Kate in tow, and my husband gets home from being in South Carolina all week. Insert contented sigh Life is good.
