I remember turning to Kyle about a year ago in a department store and telling him that I could not believe denim skirts were coming back into style.  I thought that trend would be left far behind us along with plastic choker necklaces, crimped hair and glitter eyeshadow.  Honestly, I'm shocked my mother let me out of the house wearing some of the trends that were popular in the 90s and early 2000s.

How To Get Back Into Healthy Habits

Unfortunately it happens for Kyle and I this time every year.  We fall off the healthy eating wagon and back into some of our bad eating habits.  For those of you who don't know, Kyle and I have moved five times in the past four years and I know it shouldn't be an excuse or crutch for poor choices, but somehow it manages to creep up on us and every year after we move we look at each other and ask "what in the world have we been doing?!"

The Weekender - Vol. 11

Outfit was originally posted here

What. A. Week.  I've gone through phases of emotion (worry, sadness, guilt) and am extremely fortunate that my family is safe and no one faced damage or evacuation like so many others.  Most things on the internet seem pretty trivial to me right now, but if I'm being completely honest I need a few minutes a day to take a mental break from the coverage of the aftermath of Harvey.  So please know that this post is not done with any intention to take away from what is going on in the world, I'm simply here to share a few minutes of distraction for those who need a mental break.

Ways to Help Houston and the Gulf Coast

As I sit in my apartment this morning, my heart aches for my hometown.  As many of you know, Houston has been hit with a torrential downpour for the past four days as a result of Hurricane Harvey.  Our family has been extremely fortunate in that no one has experienced water damage, but that's not the case for so many of my friends and fellow Houstonians.  Some have lost everything and while earthly possessions are just that, I cannot imagine what it is like to not have a home to go back to or know the next steps to take.
