Curb Appeal

It has come to my attention that I haven’t put in nearly enough effort in the fall transition on the front porch. Honestly? It’s still summer; Technically AND in my head. Many of you are familiar with my favorite hashtag of all time #lovesummerhateeverythingelse. I can’t take credit for this tag but I do borrow […]

September. Reboot.

Hi. It’s been a bit. Like 3 years. Lets recap… Sept. 17, 2014 2am. : I started this little lifestyle blog as a creative outlet to my already creative visual merchandising retail career. March 2015: Broken arm. June 2015: quit said retail career, joined the carpet cleaning family biz, and continued to blog right here…. […]

Lucy: the first 60 days.. and I don’t do crafts part 2.0

Well, this is the third year I’ve managed to not write a solitary thing during the month of December. I skipped November this year too. Oh well, I added to my plate remember? So, Jan 3rd is here and I have a few things to go over. I will try my hardest to write more. […]

I don’t do Halloween, part 3.

So this is the third year I’m writing about this and the truth is that I now do Halloween. After years of diffusing it and making it not so fun… I’m all in. This is partly due to the fact that I now have a few more hours a week (like 15-20) where I’m not […]

The funny thing about Homegoods…

….and agreeing to help a friend pick out curtains, is that it can go one of two ways:  Boring, indecisive, wishy-washy and tears of frustration OR you pick the right friend, incorporate wine and have a few laughs and get something accomplished all at the same time. I get this text one day… “Nice”, I […]

You know I couldn’t stay away long….from style, styling, and new products, that is. But DO NOT PANIC. I am not going back to the mall. I am still part owner of my family business and working from home and watching my kids grow. BUT, I need to be a part of something creative and […]

on the cusp

Memorial Day weekend is such a tease. What I’m learning from my work from home role and also as the kids get older is that waiting for the end of the school year is like waiting for nail polish to dry if you are painting your nails outside in 98 degree humid July heat. It […]

Theresa goes viral…

I came across the most perfect Mother’s Day inspiration today. My AMAZING mom posted a pic of my nana (who passed about 6 years ago) on her Facebook page. Then my crazy family started commenting and posting snippets of Theresa-isms. Anyone out there from a crazy Italian/American family with all the stereotypes? The made up […]

Phase 3…because tween is a stupid word

A while back, like while potty training my 2nd child, I posted something on Facebook to the effect of:  “Potty training sucks. And to all you moms who tell me I will miss this someday I say…I will NEVER miss the poop. ” Now, While I don’t exactly miss the poop, The idea of being in […]
