It’s January. It’s the month when people have made resolutions for the new year and are trying hard to stick with them. I don’t really do resolutions anymore (because I inevitably break them on January 3rd) but I do try to set goals for myself. And let’s be honest, I feel way less bad when I don’t accomplish a goal than when I break a resolution. It’s all in the wording, people. And like a lot of people, one of my goals is to be more organized.
I realize that 99% of people who know me in real life are going to laugh at that goal. I am crazy organized. Clutter and disorganization drives me nuts. But even I have a few Monica’s secret closet spots. Sure, they aren’t that bad, but they are definitely more clutter than function. So when Rubbermaid and Home Depot asked me to check out their new All Access storage line, I was all about organizing and giving a mini-makeover to one of my least functional spaces, the linen closet.
Have you ever been to one of those restaurants that give you that delicious bread? Then they go above and beyond and give you that amazing honey butter? You know… the kind you want to take a spoon to but don’t because you know people will judge you for eating straight butter? I’ve tried to make it at home before but it wasn’t ever quite right. And then I finally figured it out! In fact, I think this Cinnamon Honey Butter is way better than the stuff you get in the restaurants.

Remember last February when I shared my plans for our master bedroom? Let’s just say that it is a good thing that we haven’t gotten anywhere with that plan because I’ve changed my mind already. I guess it makes me feel better that I made up that initial inspiration before we moved into our house. I now PROUDLY present my navy + blush + gold master bedroom inspiration!
I’m a bad blogger. A bad bad blogger. I actually made up these amazing Honey Pull-Apart Rolls for Thanksgiving. Yes. I know. That was 1.5 months ago. But better late than never, right!? While I am slow and very bad, these incredible rolls are NOT! In fact, the dear friends we had Thanksgiving with started calling them crack rolls. They are insanely addictive. Despite the fact that I made these for Thanksgiving, they are definitely not a holiday only recipe. I would eat these every night if I could. Plus, the cold weather makes me want to make delicious hearty stuff and these rolls definitely fit the bill. Continue reading
Hey guys!! Hi! Hi! Remember me?? I took a few weeks off over the holidays while we were visiting family in Chicago. We had a great time and it was sad to go. But it was a good thing we left before the subzero temps and wind chills they have been getting this week!
Alright peeps. I’ve gotten many emails from you wonderful people asking to see some wedding pictures. Well happy-my-anniversary to you because it is about to get all mushy up in here. If you want to avoid the mush-fest… leave now……………….. Okay. I think all the love-scrooges are gone now. Time for picture palooza!
Three years ago today I was in the middle of the most amazing day of my life. Three years ago today, I married the love of my life, best friend, and leader. It was a balmy (compared to the current temps in Chicago!) 17 degrees outside with a light dusting of snow. The day was a dream.
