Swing Dress Sale

Cents of Style Swing Dress Sale

One of the best tips I can give for what to look for when shopping for wardrobe staples is to select items that can transition through the seasons.  Gone are the days where you have to pack up your winter clothes and say goodbye for half of the year.  Shops are getting smarter when stocking […]

Target Dresses

I’m sure most women will agree with Target is pretty much their spirit animal.   There is just something about having a little time alone strolling those magical aisles filled with everything you never knew you needed.  One of the things I am fully aware of that I am always in need of is dresses.

Caramel Marshmallow Popcorn

Caramel Marshmallow Popcorn Recipe

My kids are popcorn fanatics, Gavin in particular.  It’s their favorite movie treat and they often ask for it as an after school snack.  I like plain homemade popcorn, but what I love most is gooey, sweet caramel marshmallow popcorn.  If you have not tried it before, you are in for a treat.  It only takes a […]


The Only Constant In Life Is Change

Two weeks ago we took our little family on an amazing trip to the Disney Aulani Resort in Hawaii.  I’ve been organizing my thoughts and feels and will write about that soon.  For now I want to talk about change (and share some photos from our trip).  There is a saying that “The only constant […]

Life is Sweet

Life is Sweet

Sometimes it takes stepping away from your everyday life to really appreciate it.  We recently took the kids on an amazing trip to Hawaii, but I found myself looking forward getting back home and into our regular routines.  I missed picking the boys up from school and hearing the excitement in their voices when they […]

I just poured over all the items in the Nordstrom Summer Clearance and found some gems.  Lots of items that will be amazing for Fall and a couple of deals that are too good not to grab for next Summer.  Most items are 40% off and all are under $100.  Unlike the Anniversary Sale, this Nordstrom […]

Homemade Slime

Homemade Slime Recipe

I can remember the day we made Homemade Slime in science class in 6th grade.  I went home after school and made my mom run out to get some Broax and Elmer’s school glue so I could make more.  Homemade Slime is so quick and easy to make so we had to add it to […]

Clam Cookies

Nilla Wafer Clam Cookies Tutorial

A couple months ago I threw Kennedy a Mermaid Birthday Party which was a huge hit.  She talked about her Mermaid Birthday Party for months leading up to the big day and was on cloud nine when she saw the entire set up.  Then Ariel made her big appearance and no one else existed.  It […]
