ExtraCared for Onesie

ExtraCared for Onesie

I don't often write about my 9 to 5 (because really who wants to hear about that) but today is an exception because recently my two worlds merged for a few hours. I helped throw another baby shower at work (click here to see a bunny themed work baby shower).  I work at CVS along side designers that work on the ExtraCare loyalty program. So when one of the designers was pregnant it just seemed naturally or punny to make an ExtraCare onesie.

Last Minute Easter Decorations, Crafts and Recipes

Last Minute Easter Decorations, Crafts and Recipes

I have to admit Easter really snuck up on me this year. I am not sure if it is because Easter is so early this year or just because the snowy weather had me still in the Winter mindset. So if you're like me and are hosting Easter in 2 days and haven't even started menu planning, cleaning or decorating. I have thrown together some ideas to help us get through these next few days.

Succulents Galore!

Succulents Galore!

Saturday I found myself at Ikea.... I know what your thinking Ikea on a Saturday has this girl lost her mind? But I had a friend in town that wanted to go and I can't resist a reason to go to Ikea even if it is a Saturday.  Now I wasn't looking for anything in particular but I have been wanting to liven up the house with plants. Even though it was snowing outside I can't help but be excited that it is Spring.

DIY Recycled Easter Bunny Vases

DIY Recycled Easter Bunny Vases

Easter is just around the corner and I can't believe how early it is this year, April 5th. I've been asked to host Easter and my house is very small so the thought of it is stressing me out! So naturally what do I do? I craft.... or eat dip. So why not do both. I had a left over salsa container (coincidence?) that I thought would make a great vase for the dinner table on Easter. I ran the jar through the dishwasher.

Bunny Baby Shower (at work)

Bunny Baby Shower (at work)

One of my friends at work recently had her baby boy, Finn, but before she did we threw her a fun baby shower at the office. Now throughout her entire pregnancy she referred to her little nugget as bunny. So naturally we threw her a bunny themed baby shower! Work showers tend to be a bit different then your regular showers, you schedule a conference room for an hour and there is usually a cake. Now do you all think I could just do that? No! Even a work baby shower has to be special, maybe just with less games.

Homemade Mason Jar Lattes

Homemade Mason Jar Lattes

Who doesn't love their $5 lattes, show of hands? Who likes paying $5 for them? That's what I thought. In an effort to save some money and not go to Starbucks every weekend I started a quest to make myself a quality coffee on the weekend. Someone at work had told me that she places milk in a cup and microwaves it for 30 seconds creating her version of steamed milk without a frother. So this past weekend my sister and I were chatting that to get foam you need air. So why not shake it in a mason jar before microwaving it.
