If you’ve been too sketched out to check out a show at Fayetteville’s Backspace, be too sketched out no more. I say all of this because I was in that camp, I mean – it’s tucked behind the tree-line flanking Frisco Trail just behind the metro building. The venue was...

Ozark Mountain Music...

Eureka Springs is the place to be mid-January. I know, it sounds nuts, but seriously – the Ozark Mountain Music Festival is SO MUCH FUN! And I don’t use all caps lightly! Step ten feet from the Basin Park Hotel and it’s chilly and quiet, but that’s actually kind of a...

#OzMoMuFest 2015 ...

Saturday night at OzMoMuFest was full of some serious talent from Eureka Springs, AR; Colombia, MO; and Fayetteville, AR. The night started off with a big local band – Dime Trip – and ended with the practically local Shawn James and the Shapeshifters.┬áThe two amazing bands...

#OzMoMuFest 2015 ...

The second annual Ozark Mountain Music Festival in Eureka Springs is off to a strong start. Thursday night Mountain Sprout kicked the festival off and it’s been rocking ever since. Stepping into the Basin Park Hotel during the OzMoMuFest is like walking into another more lively and...

doing sunday morning...

I don’t know if words are necessary here. This is what every Sunday morning should look like. The things I love most about this moment (which was actually last Sunday): That milk. It’s from a local farm and is sold in non-walmart grocery stores like Harps. There is no better...

I’m fortunate enough to have been a bit of a hoarder as a kid. So, every time we moved out of state and thusly changed our license plates I held on to the old ones. Over winter break my parents and I spent hours going through big plastic tubs of toys, school work, and junk that I had...

Tricky Yogurt Tricks

While I am definitely a big fan of my BNTO, I have to admit that this little trick made me feel immensely tricky and it’s something I’ve been doing weekly since I figured it out. Also, Tillamook’s yogurts (especially the vanilla one) are rocking my lunch world. Shout out to...

#newhouse

You may have noticed, if you follow us on twitter or instagram, that we’ve moved house. We’re having our housewarming party this evening, but we have so many friends who live too far away to come see our new house in person. So, we’ve made a little video! Check it...

refrigerator pickles

My mom taught me how to make refrigerator pickles several years ago when her garden exploded with cucumbers. We made a huge jar of them and ate them all summer. So when Brooke and I found these adorable little sweet gherkins at the farmer’s market last weekend we had to have them....

mudroom madness

Why do all of the mudrooms in magazines have those big cabinets with hooks and drawers and stuff? My mudroom is all windows and I am grateful that it’s just a lot of empty space. It’s a nice place to walk into instead of a place full of everyone’s clutter. I’m sure...
