April Around The Web

Hello, friends! Currently Dale and I are enjoying a week in California but I couldn’t let that stop me from sharing a few of my favorite finds this month. This month began with a bachelorette party for my friend Steph in Lawrence and was followed by weekends with family, the KC Design Week homes tour, a couple of workouts at Fusion, Game of Thrones (!) and finally an anniversary party for our ten years of dating! I also really loved taking Adobe’s Creative Type Quiz. I’m a producer, “the quintessential “doer” of all the creative types.” The whole description made total sense and I loved being able to take a personality quiz that really focuses just on creatives.

No Rain, No Flowers!


November Around The Web

Hi, friends! I took last week off from the blog to enjoy Thanksgiving with my family. I love all the traditions during this season, and we were especially lucky that Dale had the day off on Thursday so he could join in all our festivities too! This month I hosted a baby shower for one of my best friends from college, celebrated Friendsgiving twice, and started decorating out house for Christmas for the first time. At work I’ve been busy working on Christmas product for next year, so my holiday spirit is in full swing! This was a also a big shopping month for me as I started buying presents, and a few things for myself as well. This Blue Clay face mask from Herbivore has by far been my favorite beauty find the month:

  • The perfect potato soup for a snowy day in, my favorite recipe we tried this month

  • My New Year’s plans may need to include a champagne tower this year…

  • I never would have paired disco balls and died palm leaves, but it’s a new favorite

  • Cocktail tray inspiration perfect for December parties

  • Last, but definitely not least, we have started a few updates on our kitchen! I just ordered this sink and faucet, so a full recap after we finish is coming (hopefully) soon!

Thankful for you!


March Around The Web

This month was possibly one of the most anticipated months of my entire life! It almost seems surreal that it has come and gone, so much has happened. Over the past few weeks I hosted a bridal shower for my friend Macy, celebrated with our St. Louis friends the weekend before match day with a "Matchelorette" party, found out Dale will be in KC for his internal medicine residency, closed on our house, traveled to San Antonio for Macy's bachelorette weekend, and to top it all off this weekend we will be moving most of our things to the new house! With all that has been going on it's no surprise that a lot of my discoveries around the web this month are home/decor related, and this hotel in Charleston has officially become my inspiration! It was one of the most stunning home tours I have seen recently, definetely head over to Design Sponge to see everything!

Happy Easter, everyone!


June Around The Web

Summer has officially arrived, and I can't believe June is already coming to a close! This month Dale and I spent time celebrating our friends' birthdays in Lawrence, I visited my cousin Liesel in Richmond, we celebrated Megan and Matt's wedding in Kansas City, and spent a weekend at home in St. Louis. Dale and I visited the Johnson Shut-Ins and had a lovely dinner at Scarlett's Wine Bar for our two year wedding anniversary! While not overly relaxing, this month was filled with time spent with our dearest friends and family and we still have more celebrations to look forward to this summer. This was also a busy month at work filled with special projects and work on cards I can't wait to share when they finally reach stores! 

With the warm weather I have also been wanting to try making homemade popsicles, and the web did not disappoint with two (very different) recipes that both look delicious! The first is the Pitaya Popsicle from Glitter Guide, and the second is a frosé popsicle from Camille Styles. Here are some other finds this June:

Now go enjoy those long summer days!
