December 2011

{We took this picture during Pat’s flying lesson over the bay for his birthday!} Well this is it for me this year, friends! I am taking a blogcation for the holidays to spend time with my family, who are coming out to California for Christmas (yahoo!), and I also have 1 more LLD event before [...]


{all images taken with my personal camera or iPhone} No joke I have been telling Pat not to throw away our empty egg cartons for the past 2 months. But he knows now not to ask “why” anymore, haha :). I’ve had this idea in my head for a while and finally gave it a [...]


To finish up the day of posts, we have the super sweet Tina of Sequins, Plaids & Paws to start up the finale. Since being with my husband in 2007 [and marrying him this year], I’ve been trying to create new traditions for us to enjoy together. When we moved in together, I had finally found [...]


Next up we have a very special post from the sweet Lindsay Van Cleave of Chic to the Nines and LC Vintage & Co. Traditions are very important to me. It’s one of my favorite things about the Holidays. My Mom was always big on traditions. She started two Christmas Eve traditions that I wanted [...]


Today we are back with some more blogger holiday traditions and I will be posting several as the day goes by. I hope you’ve enjoyed this series as much as I have! First up, the lovely Kate Sullivan Corpuz of Koru Wedding Shoppe, LLC (make sure to check out her blog, too!)! My favorite holiday tradition is making wishes. [...]

Last month when I was in New York, I had the pleasure of meeting some lovely bloggers, including the lovely Stefanie of Brooklyn Limestone, at the Starbucks Holiday Launch Party. Stefanie reached out to me after we met and let me know about a little Blogger Secret Santa she was putting together, and I was [...]


{all images taken with my personal camera or iPhone} Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend. I cannot believe Christmas is this week, I am so not ready for the holidays to be over! I feel like they just crept up on me and I haven’t had enough time to really enjoy [...]


Such a fun idea - a mason jar filled with carefully layered ingredients for custom cookies. Mason Jar Cookie Companyallows you to choose your cookie add-ins, name your mix, and have everything sent in layers in a pretty little mason jar. You can order them in bulk, too (fun favor idea, anyone?), and if you enter [...]


A New LLD is on it’s Way…

by jacin on December 16, 2011

I am busy prepping for a lovely wedding today down in Half Moon Bay, where I am not only doing the decor but I’m also pulling together the florals, something I absolutely LOVE to do. While I’m gone, though, I wanted to get you up to speed on some updates going on over here in [...]


How the heck do you title a post that is technically for a “meat rub”? I couldn’t think of a way that wouldn’t attract every spammer on the planet, so I did my best haha :) Anyways… this is the simplest recipe ever and it takes about 5 minutes. I made this for my first [...]
