Bar Stool Redo

November 19, 2015 No Comments

Thanks partly to the crash of 2008 and Pinterest, millenials have perfected the art of taking cheap thrift store (and in some cases, perhaps even side of the road) finds and transforming them into stylish furniture pieces worthy of a chic home. It’s become so common, I almost felt it pointless to even bother writing about this — but every time I complete a project, I get questions as to what I did, step by step. So here it is. To be honest,…

Easy Peasy Pot Roast

November 13, 2015 No Comments

For nights when you don’t have the time or energy to make a complex meal (most nights for moms), this is a great recipe to have in your bag of tricks. It’s delicious, cheap and SUPER EASY. Bonus: it makes a ton of meat and it’s versatile, so you can enjoy eating the leftovers without getting totally bored. Here’s what you’ll need: 3-ish lb beef chuck roast 1 package of onion soup mix 1/3 cup soy sauce Water Pepper Here’s what will…

Porter's Birth Story

November 10, 2015 No Comments

 I’ve avoided recounting this story in my head from start to finish as best I could for the past two years. But as my impending due date moves closer and closer, thinking about my first and only experience giving birth seems to be unavoidable. Fair warning, this is not a beautiful birth story. I had flashbacks and woke up in complete hysterics for months after bringing Porter into this world. A little background – Porter was measuring large, particularly his head, and…

Hearty Spaghetti Sauce

October 6, 2015 No Comments

The weather is FINALLY starting to cool down around here, and people are rushing up to Apple Hill to partake in all of its fall themed glory (apple picking, pumpkin patches, wine tasting and other fall crap). Fall is here! For the greater Sacramento region, cooling down means it’s 80 degrees instead of 90 or higher, but I’ll take it! I’m tenaciously embracing fall, despite the fact that I can’t dress the part without sweating profusely, and I decided it was time…

Chicken Enchiladas with White Sauce

August 17, 2015 No Comments

Growing up, I HATED enchiladas. It wasn’t until I got older that I discovered I have a cumin allergy, so that explained it. Once I tried my friend Hailey’s enchiladas that were cumin free, I had a change of heart. At that point on, I began making my own version of chicken enchiladas, adding ingredients and tweaking things as I go. Enough people have asked me for this recipe, to which my reply was always, “Sorry, it’s in my head but I’m going to…

I Lost My Two Year Old

August 11, 2015 No Comments

That moment we as parents fear the most. You hear about it, but hope will never happen to you. That moment you look around at a store, park, mall, beach – WHEREVER – and you suddenly realize you don’t see your child. You are immediately consumed with shear terror. With tears streaming down your face, your blood pressure sky rocketing into panic mode, you start asking if anyone has seen your child. You provide a brief description. He’s two, has light hair…

The Right Way to Roast Chickpeas 

June 15, 2015 No Comments

Only the best snack you will ever have in your life that can replace a craving for something salty and carby, like chips or something – and the best part is, you can make this snack salty AND spicy by adding lots of cayenne pepper! I’ve seen variations of this recipe pop up here and there on my Pinterest and Instagram, but I’ve found they’re never quite right (in my opinion). I started making this snack before it was a thing, when…

Five Make-up Faves

June 12, 2015 No Comments

I love make-up. I’ve never had the type of skin where I just look perfect completely make-up free (super jealous of people like that). I’ve been a make-up hoarder/consumer/lover since the sixth grade (is that too early? Haha) and I’m thirty now, so I’ve had some years to try tons of different brands and products. Obviously my make-up preferences evolve and change as I age, but I thought I’d just share five of my top (for now) faves. Make-up Forever concealer. This…

Kale salad with meyer lemon vinaigrette

April 10, 2015 No Comments

I’m the worst blogger ever, I know. I’ve been so caught up in being a mom/wife/daughter/friend/cook/maid/gardener/PR freelancer, that I’ve really dropped the ball on this blog, which is annoying (I’m annoyed at myself) because I’d like to be able to add “/amateur writer” — but I can’t and it’s my own fault. However, it’s a new day and Porter is napping, so I thought I’d get back on the blog horse. Cooking is something I’ve always enjoyed – my passion began as a little girl helping…

  • Highlight of my weekend was a date night with this guy 🥰. I got this leopard blazer from @zara back in November, and I’m loving how it carries into spring time by pairing it with some white jeans and open toed heels. It’s a good thing I don’t post photos of myself every time I go out, or you’d all be saying “Hey Beth, this blazer is over played. Go shopping.” 😂🤪🤷🏻‍♀️ #leopardprintforlife #datenightoutfit #stylishmomsociety
  • Happy birthday to my sweet 3 year old Preston Henry. You have always and will always have your mama’s heart ❤️

@edwardsfamily4 curated the most gorgeous baby shower, no surprise there 💖✨ #babyshower #babynumber3 #boyorgirl
  • Belated Valentine’s celebration with this guy 😍. Staycation perks: staying out late with zero accountability followed by sleeping in. Also, having uninterrupted conversations; that’s always nice too 🤪 #boglevineyards #sheratongrandsacramento #forevervalentine
  • There’s nothing I love more than watching these two love on each other 🥰❤️. What is everyone up to for Valentines Day? Personally I hate going out the day-of, so Ryan planned a little night away this weekend and he made dinner reservations and I DON’T KNOW WHERE. And I didn’t wife-cromanage this; he made these plans all on his own 😂🙌🏻 #valentinesday2019
  • In case anyone was wondering, I’m still obsessed with having a sun room, and @boglevineyards wines. #rainydaydontcare #californiamom #needtobeoutside #sacramentoblogger
  • I truly do cherish our Costco lunch dates, even though it was freezing cold today. My baby is almost 3 and it’s kind of making me sad. Time really does speed up the older you get, especially after you have kids 😢. #cherrishthemoment #prestonhenry #secondborn
  • This kid spent the entire summer last year asking to swim. Literally every single day, “Mom can we go swimming ?”🐟 Which is why I’m SO EXCITED that he got a spot on the super impacted, hardly any spots available U6 boys swim team! We only had to get there and wait in line at 6am in the rain 🤪 and by we, I mean super dad @ryancurtismitchell. Parenting win! #apdolphins
  • Today marks the first day ever where Preston’s hair cut didn’t involve physical restraint and screaming bloody murder. He was such a good boy and got the biggest smile on his face when he looked at himself in the mirror afterwards 💛💛. I knew you’d conquer that fear someday Presto 😍. Scroll for his “before” pic ➡️😂
