Le Blog

It seems most of my posts these days are of the "remember when I had a blog" sort. I used to blog a lot. Mostly about style. I slowed down because I had a baby, then another baby and frankly because I lost interest in posting about clothes. The purpose of the blog was for me to explore and understand my own personal style and it DEFINITELY helped with that. I am a MUCH more conscious clothing buyer and I know what works for me... I think the blog is mostly to thank for that! I still follow along with some style blogs, but for the most part, it just doesn't interest me much anymore. But, I will never regret posting about my style. It was so fun and I made some fun on-line friends (and some real-life ones too!).

Another reason the blog has been silent is because there has been a lot happening "behind the scenes." My husband's job has been in-flux for a while (it would take waaaayyy to long to explain it, so I'm not even going to try) but after a year-ish of figuring things out, I am happy to say that things are a bit more settled. But, we moved. To Tulsa. In July. So, everything is new. I feel like we are starting over in so many ways (Tulsa is actually home to lots of friends and some family so we definitely have a head start in the new-ness).

So, why come back to the blog? Well, we just bought a new house. If you've been around for a while you might remember that we kind of just bought our other house. Yep. We lived in it for two years, and one of those years was spent knowing that we might potentially move. So, needless to say, I didn't get to do as much to it as I wanted to.

Our new house is really wonderful, but it definitely has a "fixer upper" status to it. We are currently in the process of gutting an entire bathroom (there is no usable tub right now and with two kids it has been interesting!).  I want to share some of this process on the blog! Of course there are a million other "home bloggers" out there and I'm not trynna' be famous or notin' but I think it would be fun (for me, at least) to document the process. I always like looking back on what we've done over time.

So, that is the hope. We'll see. I think I will try to show some of it on "real time" on insta stories if you would like to follow along there.

And because no post is complete without a photo, here is a recent of me. Yep, the same. Just a few more gray hairs and eye creases :)


  1. Gorgeous!! And so nice to see you back here - sounds like a crazy year with the house buying/selling, but I can't wait to see more with the new house! Totally agree that blogging stuff like this is really fun to have documentation of the process, but also I really love seeing the renovation/style of what I consider "regular" people :)

  2. Welcome back! I was going to ask you how that pretty giant fireplace/mantle were doing and how the boob light replacing was going... but looks like I just need to get excited for some new home makeover posts. Congrats on the new adventure in a new city with two littles. Hope you're doing well and am excited to hear more from you!

  3. So glad to see you back! I visited Tulsa this fall for a SeneGence conference and will be back in April! It's a fun town!

  4. So nice to see a post from you again! I would definitely be interested in how you survived life with two kids and no bathroom, that requires bravery!

    Congrats on the move and the new house too! :)

    Hope that you are having a nice start to your week and you had a good weekend! We had a quiet one here.

Thanks so much for your comment! I reply to my comments via email, but I can't do that if you are a no-reply blogger (if you don't know what that means, you probably are). Check out this tutorial to fix it!
