Sweater. Jeans. Flats.

One of my favorite parts of the holiday season is setting the table for dinners.  My mom always set beautiful tables, and I try (try is the key word) to live up to that.  It made the meals so special and setting a pretty holiday table brings me an immense amount of joy.  And none as much as my Thanksgiving table, when it is all about the meal, and gathering together to be thankful for what we have.

6 quick and easy halloween costumes.

6-quick-and-easy-halloween-costumes

Anyone who grew up with me knows that I’ve always been a huge Halloween freak.  I always loved dressing up, decorating, trick or treating and just all the fun a festive stuff that leads up to October’s holiday.

When I was younger my costumes were very intricate, (one year I was a full on Geisha girl- white painted face, black wig and all) but now that I’m a mom and have way less time since there are 4 kids to make costumes for, I’m all about the quick and easy halloween costumes that are still fun and festive.

The first home we owned right out of college was this little shoebox in Utah just north of Provo.  It was a cute little house with a front porch all along the front and a driveway in the back.  (I can’t believe how long it’s been since we lived there, it feels like a dream now.)  It was the first time I ever had a home that was my own to work on.  We put up beadboard and did some faux finishes and I learned a little about my style and what I wanted to do with my home.
