  • Halloween Costumes

    Because … better late than never right? Making these costumes was very fun …. and I also had another F word on my mind a couple of times while sewing .. and re-sewing, and re-sewing, and RE-SEWING! I often enjoy sewing.  For the first 10 minutes of a project. And then by October 30th, I […]

    It’s that time of year again! Time to break out the Ericksen colors!  If you don’t know what Ericksen colors are, you may not have been here last year.  Being Air Force “brats”, my girls have always seen the Red, White, and Blue flying high.  Nora just assumed that The American Flag was our flag.  […]

  • Fall Transition + Life Update

    Everywhere I look it’s like Fall this, Fall that.  Target thinks they can trick me into thinking it’s Fall when it’s actually still 85 degrees outside and 120% humidity.  Why is this weather even a thing?  Who the H invented humidity?  What’s worse is that North Carolina is like trying to trick me.  The weather […]

  • Summer Dress

    I was given these products for review.  All opinions are 100% my own. I’m all about the T-shirt dress. It’s like a T-shirt and jeans, minus the tight jeans part that won’t let you indulge in that extra donut. The dress, however says, “you go for that extra donut girl .. or two! And I’ll […]

  • Gingham & My Favorite Jeans

    I love gingham.  I don’t know what it is about it. It could be the fact that the very word gingham is the word that won me the spelling bee in the fourth grade. Boooooom!  G-I-N-G-H-A-M. That spells I am the best speller at North Elementary … and the biggest nerd too. 🤓 The nerdiness followed me […]
