Fiesta Friday: things to celebrate


The easiest vegetable dip!

I kind of like this Dalmatian tunic but not sure how it would look on me –  thumbs up or down?

I got a pair of Lululemon capris 7 years ago and they’re still in awesome condition! I don’t usually like to spend a ton on exercise clothes, but they fit amazing and great quality.

Me and my family (and dog) are still in the moving process from Utah to Austin, TX. I didn’t even realize it was Friday, life has been a whirlwind! One of the best parts is being able to decorate a new home in a few weeks! Here’s some current inspiration:

Fiesta Friday: things to celebrate


This weekly series will focus on happiness, awesome tips, and things to celebrate because there’s so much good in the world!

The ’10 Commandments’ of a clutter free life! I love when I’m in a purge mood and spring is the perfect time.

How to wake up happier

How to look your best in pictures– I’ve benefited from the blush tip 🙂

I’m in love with all these rugs

Hosting a party? I’ve made these a few times with turkey instead of ham, easy and a crowd pleaser.

Blogs That Inspire

I’ve been reading blogs for the last decade and there are a few that continue to inspire me creatively and that I look forward to reading daily. Some of them inspired me to start a blog 9 years ago shortly after getting married, that ‘family’ blog went on hiatus last year and has been re-branded and revamped to what you’re reading today.

Some of my favorite lifestyle blogs I’ve been reading long-term:

A Cup of Jo – Always interesting and thoughtful posts, I especially enjoyed her series about motherhood around the world which highlighted American mothers living abroad.

Reading My Tea Leaves – I love Erin’s minimalist lifestyle. She finds beauty in the smallest things.

ExPress-o – Diana always posts beautiful images and insightful posts.

Cupcakes & Cashmere – I love Emily’s style in fashion and home decor. She has cute ideas for festive food holiday decor that are classy, not tacky.
