Gift Guide: For Her



It's time for another gift guide...this time for me her! ;) Hey, my birthday is the day after Christmas so I'm always thinking about ideas! But for any woman in your life, whether your wife, mom, sister, friend or other loved one, I think these would make great gifts!

Spin Shoes: If you love spin as much as I do, then you know how important the shoes are! I'm long overdue for a new pair and love the look of these!

Wine Glasses: We have stemless wine glasses and love them but I've been wanting to invest in some stemmed wine glasses for the holidays and dinner parties.

Chain Necklace: Such a pretty place to layer with!

Headband: So festive for this time of year!

Cheese Spreaders: The perfect accessory for a cheese board! And they're surprisingly hard to find. Love these too!

Leopard Leggings: Love these in both colors! Also just got this pair...they're so buttery soft!

Tula Eye Serum + Brightening Cream: I've heard amazing things about these products and think it's high-time I invest in taking better care of my skin!

Key Chain: I love this brand and their leather good! Would be fun to have a new keychain! Also love their make-up bags and have had my eye on their tote insert to better organize my bag!

Mug: An initial mug for coffee and tea! Love how it looks like little tiles!

Gold Eye Mask: Because we're not getting any younger! ;)

Pearl Clips: These have been on my list for awhile. Love how they can dress up any outfit!

Slippers: I have the Loft slippers in ivory and love them! I think the black would be fun!

I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! Bring on Christmas!

Gift Guide: For the Kiddos


Yay for the first holiday gift guide of the season! And thanks to family who have been asking for ideas...it was just the push I needed!

I said it last year, but I feel like the older the boys get the less "stuff" they really need. I love the idea of providing more experiences...but...I also know how fun it is to unwrap gifts on Christmas morning! So here are my top ideas!

Jersey Lined Windbuster Jacket: For days when it's cold out but not snowing!

Kiwi Crate: Ethan's best friend has this subscription service and loves it! It's definitely on Ethan's list this year!

Mega Crystal Growing Lab: Another fun "project" for our little scientists!

Play Wallet: Wyatt wants a wallet like the one we got Ethan for his birthday. Love that this one comes with play money too!

This is How We Do it Book: Adorable for a 4, almost 5, year old!

Magic Tree House Box Set: These books come highly recommended for early readers. Check out those reviews! Ethan will love the "Night of the Ninjas" book!

Preschool Math Book: So Wyatt can do his "homework" with his big brother!

Colossal Crash Track: Another hot ticket item on the boys wishlist!

Dino Balaclava: For those freezing cold mornings!

Kids Digital Camera: The boys got disposable cameras over the summer to take pictures of their summer vacation, but printing the photos...well, we haven't exactly gotten around to it! Love the idea of a digital camera that they can explore with!

Happy shopping!

Schue Casa: The Front Sitting Room Mood Board




The last time we talked about this room, I was planning for it to be a formal dining room. Since we've now lived here for over a year, we have a much better understanding of how we use each room. The front room is currently set up with our old sectionals {see it here!} and even though it's not super ideal looking, it's proven to be very functional for our family! We love drinking coffee there in the morning, reading a book in the afternoon or having a glass of wine with company in the evening. It's got a great view of trees and mountains and it's a nice room to escape to! 

I've been searching high and love for a couch and accent chairs that will be both attractive and comfortable. We LOVED our olds sectional from Macy's...in fact, we have a smaller version in our upstairs media room. The back is supportive and it's great for lounging/watching movies. I am probably crazy for wanting a white couch but since I'm *hoping* this will be more of an adult space, I am thinking it will be ok. This is another white couch that is crazy inexpensive!

I've also been on the hunt for accent chairs...and while I wanted something more structural, I'm not sure that the lack of comfort will be worth it. Some of the accent chairs I've been looking at...this, this and this! However, I love the height on the ones above and how comfy they look to curl up in.

Last, the rug looks like a dramatic choice but I keep reading how it's gorgeous and versatile it is for most any room. I don't think it's as bold in person, but it will definitely add warmth to the room.

Now to save and start chipping away!

Recent Fall Buys



Oh Fall...how I love you and your sweaters, hats and cute boots! Here are some of my recent buys...including a couple things I got in Paris!

Shoulder Bag: I bought this when I was in Paris...it's super cute and functional. I especially liked that it has some zippered compartments, which made it feel more secure for traveling abroad. I was able to fit my wallet, phone, water bottle and umbrella in there! I also love this and this, in case you're in the market for something similar!

Flat Iron: My new favorite! I had had the same flat iron since college so it was time for a new one. The best part about this one? It curls my hair like a dream! Who knew??

Heeled Boots: I got these during one of Madwell's sales and I love them! I think they look just like the Rag & Bone version, but for much less.

Pearl Clip: Another fun buy in Paris! I love & Other Stories...new favorite shop!

Hat: My friend wore this recently and I couldn't believe she scored it for under $20! Such a great find and it comes in tons of colors!

Sweater: I actually bought this before our Paris trip, but really fell in love with the store when we visited. All of their things are super feminine {and French!}...their collections are always curated and lovely. I've also had my eye on these boots- in black with the tortoise heel! and this large round bag! Swoon!

Top: Another sweet top from & Other Stories!

Flats: I have the boot version of these and love them! I've seen a lot of other bloggers with the flats and since they're 40% off, figured it was worth investing in!

Faux Leather Skirt: I can't wait to wear this with tights and my OTK suede boots!
