Winter Vest

Today, I am styling this winter Patagonia brand vest. I usually do not like wearing a big coat in the winter, especially when I am lugging around a 15 month old, her bag, a purse, etc. This vest is perfect because it is not too bulky and it is still somewhat warm. I also love the fact that it goes with literally everything! I also love this purse, which I purchased at Target. It holds all of the necessities and the price does not break the bank.

Well, it is Valentine's Day weekend. I feel that Valentine's Day is a bit overrated and I hate the fact that restaurants are always so crowded during this time. We usually end up just staying in and ordering take out. What are your plans for the weekend?


Valentine's Day Sugar Cookies


Today, I wanted to share one of my favorite family recipes for sugar cookies.

You will need:

1/2 cup of shortening

1 cup of sugar

1 egg

1/3 cup of milk

2 1/2 cups of flour

1/2 teaspoon of baking soda

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1/2 teaspoon of cream of tarter

1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract

rolling pin

cookie cutter of choice


Mix ingredients together. Roll dough out using rolling pin and cut shapes out with cookie cutter. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 400 degrees for 5-7 minutes. Let cool and then ice as desired.

Hope that you enjoy! Have a great day!


Coffee Date


Last weekend, Joe, Adelyn and my sister, Amy all went to Evansville. We went computer shopping, ate lunch at Biaggis Italian restaurant and then we went and found Penny Lane Coffeehouse in downtown Evansville. We always love to find new places to check out. This was such a cute little coffee shop. I got a Carmel Macchiato, which is usually my drink of choice. It was good! Joe and Adelyn do not look too thrilled in the picture, but I think they had fun. My outfit details are listed below. Thanks for reading!
