Five Lessons I Learned At BYB 2015

Lessons learned at BYB 2015

Last weekend I had the opportunity to attend a blog conference. I’m kind of a scaredy cat when it comes to traveling, but when conferences are in Salt Lake, I try to take advantage of them. My favorite thing about conferences is just connecting with other women. It’s fun to meet up with friends that […]

2015 Word of the Year- Renew

2015 Word of the Year: Renew

Getting a little more personal today. I don’t do that very often on this website. Probably not often enough. Here goes. I have always enjoyed seeing all the other bloggers write about a word for the year that they are going to focus on. But I have never done one of my own. This year […]

What I Learned and Loved in May and June

Favorite Products- Downy Unstopables

Well it’s time again for another re-cap of the last two months. Which has been insanely busy around here, even though it doesn’t show here on the blog. I realized that I only posted 8 times during the month of June. What the what!? That is a record low for me, and a sign of […]

I’m Late to the Instagram Party, But Come Join Me!


How many of you are using Instagram? When I attended the SNAP! conference last year, the cute Jamie from C.R.A.F.T. helped me install Instagram on my iphone. But after I got home, I kinda forgot about it, and I didn’t really use it for the rest of the year. Then I started using it again […]

Merry Christmas!


I am taking a blogging break this week to spend time with my crazy family. I hope you have a wonderful holiday season with all of your loved ones! I’ll be back next week. I think. Unless I’m having too much fun. You know, cleaning up after Christmas and stuff like that.  Here’s some other […]

Who Are These Bloggers?


Some of you may have heard the snide remarks Martha made about bloggers in an interview on Bloomberg TV.  She said the following: “Who are these bloggers? They’re not trained editors at Vogue magazine. There are bloggers writing recipes that aren’t tested that aren’t necessarily very good, or are copies of what really good editors […]
