My Favorite Things {Real Life House / Outfit Moments}

Article may have affiliate links. If you make a purchase, I may earn a tiny commission at no extra cost to you. Big thanks for supporting my small business.

Some of you email asking if our house is always perfect looking and that makes me laugh because it’s only perfect when I shoot pictures for a blog post. I am going to attempt to do a better job of sharing real life with you all. My favorite things for the week will consist of real life moments so I plan on sharing those favorites (life + outfits + messy house moments ect.) from now on with all of you.

So if it’s a favorite outfit, you may see me standing in front of a mirror taking a picture :).

If you follow us on instagram, you know I started sharing fun outfits of the kids and me. I have a date with my mom next weekend to take pictures of her in her favorite outfits so stay tuned for that.

My cute gramp at 7am heading out to work. He loves that plaid coat. Even though he drives me crazy sometimes, I am so lucky to be able to see him every morning walk through the kitchen. You know what I mean?

I went to a blogger event in Boston a couple weeks ago and snapped this cute picture because I love this dress. It’s from Banana Republic Outlet and was under $50. Look closely, who do you see under the coffee table?
