Mommy & Me: Gingham

Mommy & Me: Gingham

I remember when the gingham trend went into full swing this year, and I literally searched every store for any gingham items I could find. It didn’t even matter what the color was and if it was a top, skirt, pants, dress, etc. If it […]

Stripes At Work

Stripes At Work

When I first moved to case management from the post anesthesia care unit (aka “recovery”), I was so excited about being able to wear all my clothes! When you do bedside nursing, you’re limited to scrubs, but when you hold a non-clinical position, you have […]

Mommy & Me: Cherry On Top

Mommy & Me: Cherry On Top

It’s always fun matching with the little one — while she still lets me. I know that the older they get, the more they want to separate themselves to look for their own identity. I mean, I went through it, so I should know. But […]

Comfort Zones

Comfort Zones

I like comfort zones. I’m not a thrill seeker. My husband loves to ride roller coasters, and he’s always asking if I would be willing to go sky diving. My answer is always the same: “No.” Besides the fact that I’m afraid of heights, I […]

Mommy & Me: We’re Blue

“True friends don’t come with conditions.” – Aaron Lauritsen.  People often say that it’s more fun to have a daughter because you can dress them up and match with them. I say it doesn’t matter what your child is, you can still dress them up […]

VB x Target: Orange Scallop

VB x Target: Orange Scallop
