I'm back!

I know I have not exactly been away, away and I was still posting a few times a week, but I'll back to blogging almost every day now. Unfortunately, I did not get much done with my shop like I hoped I would during my haitus. Chalk that up to grown up things like refinancing my house, exploring schooling options for my daughter, and Mr. Scissors traveling for bid-ness. Plus, I have two kids under 6, so there is only so much I can do. I've just always been an over-acheiver.

Though I'm not one for posting pictures of myself, I know sometimes it's nice to put a face to a blog! As we were running out the door to pick my hubs up from the aiport, I realized how colorful we were--such a change because I am normally one who prefers to wear blacks and neutrals. I love the blurry shot my daughter took of me; poor thing, my SLR camera is almost as big as she is! You can see I finally bought that Gap swing jacket. My daughter's boots are by Trumpette, jacket by Carter's and my son's jacket is from the Gap. He loves those big blue boots by Crocs that I bought at Goodwill for a few dollars. He likes to wear them and just undies as he runs around the house. Crazy kid.

So, here I am! Back to blogging! Thanks for sticking around! I've got a great giveaway for tomorrow (with more than one winner!), a review of the new Sticky Fingers cookbook, cool images from vintage children's books and a brussels sprouts recipe coming up this week!


  1. Haha! This is what I was trolling your blog for! Was just checking out at The Gap and had an overwhelming urge to buy this polish. On the way home was meditating on that urge and realize that your blog should get a commission for the sale!

    1. Glad to know that I could agitate your retail desires. That polish is not Gap though--I think it is Zoya.


I love comments! Thanks for saying hi!
