When I was younger I bought an American Girl book about throwing slumber parties. It was one of my favorite things to flip through and got me super excited for my birthday to come around.
If you remember super fun birthday times when you were younger, they usually involved renting out bowling alleys, skating rinks, movie theaters, pizza places, etc. Well, we didn’t have much money growing up, so I was always doing the at-home cheaper DIY options and having that American Girl book made it way more fun.
I recently received another book about party planning that is perfect
I hope the weather is better where ever you are. After a few splendid days of sunshine in Austin, it is back to being rainy and cold. BUMMER. However, the good news is I can wear all of the sweaters that I have been purchasing at end of season sales. It is definitely a good day to stay in bed, and write blog posts!
I didn’t know I was on a mission to find the perfect LBD, until I saw this one. It was love at first sight! I now understand why
Patti Pao had a major “aha” moment when visiting a salmon hatchery in Norway. They do say that you can find inspiration everywhere! While on a sight seeing tour, Patti noticed that the workers’ hands, which were submerged in water all day, looked smooth and ageless. She soon discovered that this was the result of a remarkable enzyme that occurs in nature to help salmon eggs hatch.
Patti, a beauty industry veteran, knew immediately that she could use this enzyme to make a line of anti-aging skincare products.
Getting up to write is difficult these days. Recently, I don’t have a lot of motivation to get myself to a computer and focus on writing words – and, you know, not getting lost on Buzzfeed, Facebook, and other stupid noise.
I have found my ticket out of the funk though. Another fellow Marine wife here also needs to get her writing butt in gear, so we’ve decided to conquer our procrastination together and meet once a week to write and make sure we’re getting work done.
Haha if you haven’t noticed, the titles to my posts are always very uncreative. I don’t know, but I have a hard time coming up with cutesy titles, so I just pick something super literal. I mean, at least you know what the post is going to be about.
So yes, in this post I am wearing a plaid shirt. This shirt is another one of those thrift store finds that has proven to be a great purchase. It is a men’s Ralph Lauren shirt that I scored for under $5 at Goodwill, and I wear it all the time

I always knew I wanted to own my own business. I opened up a grocery store in our workout room, and used the treadmill as the check out aisle when I was about 6. Then, in middle school, I opened up a salon in my parents’ basement where I would wash my girlfriends’ hair and
Stacy Lyon has always been an entrepreneur. Her first business venture was when she was 9 years old; she sold worms to Shawano Lake (Wisconsin) fishermen. Then, in college, she started an entrepreneurs club at the University of Wyoming. Now, she is the founder of healthy hoohoo, which is a revolutionary line of natural freshness products for women.
There is no question about it: Stacy has created a very successful brand with products that might not be the sexiest to talk about. Her line is now carried at Whole Foods, natural grocers, spas and wellness
Somehow, I got to baking a lot the past two weeks which meant massive amounts of dough/batter in a short amount of time.
Very briefly, I’m going to share with you just a couple of quick fixes that really helped speed the process along:
The worst part about baking is realizing I have to cream together some damn butter and sugar, and forgetting to let the butter out to sit to get to room temperature. Not a problem anymore. I just grate the butter now, which softens it and makes it much easier to cream anyway.
If I could wear leather pants and 4 inch heels everyday, would I? Most definitely. However, the reality is, sometimes I need to actually function in the clothes I am wearing.
So, I wore this outfit last Monday because I needed a major pick me up after my vacay. Yes, going back to work can be a major buzz kill! If only, I could live a jet set life…Joking, joking. I am pretty happy to be back at work because I have some exciting things going on. I can’t wait to share them later in the year!
