To Infinity and Back.

November 30, 2016

I love you to Infinity & back. My mom and I have had this saying for as long as I can remember. Whenever we write or text each other, we shorten it to “luti+b“. It’s “our thing,” our saying for sure and each time we say it to each other, it feels like a secret handshake, a club meant just for us. While others may understand what the saying means, only she and I know the depth of all it…

Eeek! Our Toy Line is HERE!

November 2, 2016

Oh guys. I have been waiting for what feels like forever to finally introduce “our” toy line, Noodling, from Infantino! Some of you may have caught my Snapchat a few weeks ago, announcing that the toys Christian and I worked on together are here and that I was planning on doing a giveaway with all of them and… today is that day 🙂 It seemed easier to vlog about this than to write about it (#newbornlife) so check out the…

(His) Style: JORD Wood Watches

December 8, 2015
His Style Jord

You may remember the first time I confessed my love for JORD wood watches and I’m here to tell you that the obsession only grew from there. I have always had an affinity for watches, particularly ones that stand out from all the rest… and clearly JORD does just that. (Because yes- each watch is made out of 100% natural wood, for real.) Most of the compliments I’ve gotten on the watch I wear daily have been from the men in my life; my dad,…

SPEAK your gratitude. (A Grateful Heart)

July 27, 2015

Happy Monday 🙂 I’m really happy to be back in this space & taking part in this linkup with you all. Yesterday, at church, our pastor Pete Wilson spoke about gratefulness and while I’m pretty sure I wrote down just about everything he said (I told you, I’m like a full on journal writing crazy person on Sundays!) there was one thing he said that really just gripped my heart: I wanted to stand up and yell, PREACH! YES! but, you…

Happiness Stamped (A Grateful Heart + Special Giveaway!)

May 25, 2015

Before we get to the exciting news at EG, I want to reflect on how truly GRATEFUL I am for all who have and continue to fight for our freedoms. The human losses our country has suffered since long before I was even born have not been forgotten on my part, not in the slightest. While we all continue to spend time with family and loved ones on this day, I hope we remember the brave ones who were not…

DIY: Address Book (+ Giveaway!)

March 18, 2015

I am so excited to share my latest DIY with you guys today! For months I had been searching for a new address book but could never find one I really liked. Perhaps I’m an Address Book Snob (oh, you didn’t know that was real?) but I just couldn’t justify spending money on something that I wasn’t totally happy with. So what were my issues with all of the address books out there? Here are a few: the book never…

Would you shave your head?

January 23, 2015

Oh, did I catch your attention with that title?! 😉 What a week for giveaways, guys! Two in one week, this is so much fun. Today’s giveaway is a bit different than what we bloggers are used to though because not only can you enter to win some awesome gifts, but in doing so you are asked to support St. Baldricks by giving a donation of at least $5.  St. Baldricks is a foundation that raises money for childhood cancer…

Sky Zone: Time to Fly (+ a giveaway!)

July 10, 2014

So basically, X and I went flying on Tuesday. I mean, it was the closest thing to flying that I’ve ever done. I’m talkin’ about SKY ZONE, all. Sky Zone is an indoor trampoline park that offers a huge space with nothing but jumping room and lots of options and programs to get your jump on. Christian and I made the short drive to Sky Zone Elmhurst for a morning of jumping fun, which also quickly turned into the best workout ever. (We are…

Project 52: Weekly Walk. We had the most perfect summer day this past weekend and I could not stop taking pictures of the sky (I told you I was obsessed!) There is nothing better than walks under blue skies, and then relaxing under a big umbrella with a cold drink in hand and friends by your side.  // Wednesday Wishes I want to thank you all so, so much for your kind words & encouragement yesterday regarding my rough start to…
