Snow Days, Happy Pups & Comfy Outfits


The Abominable Snowman… aka Leif.

He will sit like this all day long during a blizzard.

It’s his happy place.


We got over 2 feet of snow this week, leading to school being canceled all week long, and my boys (the pups) getting lots of play time in the snow.


Barkley lugged around his rope for hours, despite it freezing and weighing 3x the norm.

Needless to say they both have slept soundly the past few days.

I love snow. Growing up where we had to drive to get to the snow, I still enjoy seeing snow fall from my living room window and driving through town after it settles. It makes me feel like I am staying a a cabin up where I used to go snowboarding.

Plus the outfit requirements are pretty great.

My ideal snow day outfit is a pair of comfy lounge pants, an oversized sweater, big fluffy socks, and a cup of coffee that never runs out. Much like this:


Pure happiness.

Hope everyone is enjoying their snow day (or lack thereof!)



Pinspirations- What on Pinterest Inspires You?

I love Pinterest. I mean, really LOVE it. (Along with the rest of the online world, I know). Here are a few things that have caught my eye this week (click on the photos for a link to the pin and source). Check out my other boards and follow me to share your pins with me too!:

Blanket Scarves

Typically I pin a ton of adorable outfits but this week I apparently was too cold to think about wearing anything other than sweats and hoodies. Needless to say my pins reflected that this week:





Yummy FOOD

I love to eat, so I will spare you all of the the recipes and pictures of delicious food I pinned while I was starving,, but here are two I can’t wait to try!



Travel/ Nature

So many places, so little time (okay, so little money!). My travel to do list grows faster than I can check places off, so the travel boards help me indulge in my wanderlust. Aren’t these photos gorgeous?

Hallstatt, Austria


Yellowstone National Park


Kayangan Lake, Coron islands, Palawan, Philippines


And one more pretty thing-



How great would it be to work in an office like that? I’m feeling inspired to write already!…

Office Inspiration – Beautiful Places to Create

One of my goals for 2015 is do more writing, and to create a space where I feel inspired to do so. After finally moving our bunny out of the guest bedroom (which serves as my closet as well), I now have the space to create the perfect home office for writing, grad school, and general home organization.

I’ve been scouring Pinterest for ideas and have found so many beautiful spaces that would make me oh so happy to sit and write.





(Seeing a trend? I’m completed obsessed with Kate Spade inspired offices…)

It’s pretty easy to tell what I am leaning towards. But while I would love to be able to sit down at any one of these desks, unfortunately one of the key factors is missing in my house – natural light. But they are a great jumping off point right?
