The One Item You Need For Your Next Snow Trip


[I could stare at this view of the Grand Tetons allllll day…]


I have gone on many snowy trips with boots and snow coats and gloves and scarves…but there’s one accessory I discovered this trip that I can’t believe I’ve gone without all these years. If you’re visiting the snow this season or in the future, this item is a must have.

Boot Grippers (aka boot cleats) turn any boot into safe, good-gripping ones. It’s equivalent to putting chains on your tires when driving on icy roads. Even the grippiest rubber snow boots are only so good until you walk on ice. These provide amazing traction and made for a much safer hike when I had to climb a few very icy spots last week. They’re great for making your not-so-snowy boots or shoes safe to wear.

I got these ones (below) but you have make sure to pull the front up over the toe, or else they may come off. I initially just pulled them to the front and, after hiking in some deep snow, realized I had lost them a few minutes back. After I pulled them over the toe, they stayed on the rest of the way. A better design (in my opinion) would be these ones that have an extra strap over the top.

^ This is the waterfall we climbed on! So glad I had the boot grippers.

Dressing the Bump // 23 Weeks


Little Baby Boy is coming in a few months (May 2017!!) and I’m trying to transition my #foggydress wardrobe to be more bump friendly. I am so excited to see this little guy, but until then I have to figure out how to not look like a bum all the time (yes, I live in sweats 90% of the time). When I leave the house it’s low key, but for church I have to look my best, so you’ll probably be see lots of dresses during this pregnancy. That and I love wearing dresses because it doesn’t push on my tummy like a lot of my maternity pants do. Luckily I live in California so it’s pretty mild as far as winters go,

Here’s me and the babe at 23 weeks:

What I Really Want To Wear To Holiday Parties


I have always been attracted to weird pieces of clothing. In seventh grade, year 1999, I purchased a bright orange, polyester, long sleeved shirt. It read “MILLENNIUM” in 3D, pop-out letters. I wore it for years.

If my sweet husband were blind, and my bank account had about 10 extra zero’s on the end of it, this would be my Christmas party attire:



Would this number be appropriate for my church Christmas party? It’s not too much, is it? Good.

I just want to wear a coat. A very large, oversized, shiny coat.



Velveetttt (*hearts-as-eyes-emoji*). Can you tell I’m obsessed with this designer? Top + bottom are totally Christmas-party-ready.
