Pizza May Be Saving Our Lives… this is not an understatement.

Picture it.It's 6:30pm on a Wednesday. Kid is running around naked from her bath as you trail after her with a diaper, dog is chewing a leggo, there's a pile of laundry glaring at you from the couch and your husband looks in the fridge and, in his best Les Miserables impersonation he says, "So are we eating dinner tonight?"Actually, I was thinking we'd stare at each other and starve.(sorry, that was supposed to be my "inside voice") If like me, you have experienced this or some form of similar insanity-inducing early evening chaos, I...

Levis Forever

I'm loving the Levis trend that has returned. Considering I never really stopped wearing mine, I guess some old things are just new again (like me?) Maybe I'm nostalgic or maybe I'm forever stuck in the '90s but there's nothing like the hug and form of these jeans when they really break in. These 501s are high waisted and distressed. They're awesome for everyday but also dress up pretty well with some cute platforms or wedges. My shoes are by Pour la Victoire (obsessed with everything on their website!). And while I looooove my diaper bag...
