Lilly girl is FOUR (4!!) months old! 1/4 of a whole year old. I mean. WHOA. F’real? I’m the mother of a FOUR MONTH OLD?!
I know, I know. I’m WAY overreacting. But still. Time is just flying. I also realize that I say this every month.
We have had such a great month. She’s been changing SO much and her personality is really showing through! Every moment with this little, precious girl is amazing. Being her mom is the greatest responsibility God has ever entrusted me with.
I never, in a million years, thought I’d be that lady that LOVED being a mom. But boy, oh boy. I LOVE being a mom. I love it. I love it. I love it.

I always grappled with the idea of a “wish list.” I don’t know why. It just, sort of seemed… I dunno… I don’t know if selfish is the word, because I certainly don’t think that people who create wish lists are selfish… I guess I think I just feel weird saying: “This is what I want!”
I realize that I am TOTALLY overthinking this. It’s a wish list. Not a last will and testament or something.
I got to thinking and I started just sort of creating a little mini-wish list for fun… and, well, I thought it might be a good little inspiration for anyone looking for any last minute gift ideas for someone in your life who might like fun, pretty things. Haha! Continue reading →

I love creating new traditions!
Since getting married, John and I have tried to come up with fun traditions surrounding each holiday – it’s something I look forward to every year.
John has a lot of cousins on his dad’s side of the family, and last year, on our first married Christmas, the Stillman cousins decided to get together after Christmas to have a “Stillman Cousin Christmas Party.”
It was SO MUCH FUN! We all got together for dinner and exchanged (READ: HILARIOUS) white elephant gifts! And this year, we’re doing the same thing.
But the problem is, I’m going to have to up the ante on my hilarious white elephant gift this year.
I’ve been brainstorming and trying to figure out what I might include in my white elephant gift package at the Stillman Cousin Christmas party…
ANNND of course, my happy place, Target, has not failed to disappoint this year (as they never disappoint me). Target came out with an entire line of #hilariousholiday gifts!
Check out some of the options:
I’m a BIG fan of this hilarious socks – anything that includes a pun is a top choice in my book.

I hate talking about the weather, but the fact is, the weather here in North Carolina has been DISGUSTING for what feels like forever. It’s really only been like four days, but still. Well, because of the gross weather, I’ve not exactly been able to get outside to do outfit photos… or really photos of anything. Sooooo. Yeah. Truth.
Anyway. That doesn’t matter, because the adorable Rebecca is here on my blog today to give one lucky still being [molly] reader a BRAND STINKIN’ NEW Urban Decay Naked3 eyeshadow palette AND a goodie bag of her favorite drugstore makeup.
I am SO JEALOUS, y’all. I know jealousy is ugly, but I want a Naked3 palette SO BADLY!! So, whoever wins – you are one lucky gal! (Or guy… maybe a guy enters for his gal?)
Let me just say that Rebecca is another one of my fabulous blog friends turned in-real-life friends. We also met through triFABB and this woman is amazing. Not only is she super down to earth but she’s also a mama of THREE kids!! My hero! She has FABULOUS work-appropriate style and does the BEST makeup tutorials and reviews.

I have been feeling like I’ve been in a cooking rut lately. I know that’s not really the case, but I tend to make the same dishes over and over again. Once I find a dish (or seven) that I like, I end up putting them in rotation.
I really LOVE to cook. I wasn’t always like that… but in the past few years, cooking has become therapeutic for me. I love experimenting with new recipes, new flavors, etc.
Anyway. I was planning on making pizza for dinner last night, but I ended up feeling like that was, again, a food crutch. So I got to thinking. And this is the recipe that I ended up making and it was DELICIOUS! So easy. So delicious. I can’t wait to eat the leftovers of it, too.
I will say this off the bat – this craft is not my idea. I’ve seen it done before and I had made a mental note to do it when I had a baby.
However, I wanted to personalize it a little more and as I was working on it, I got this brilliant idea that I’m SO EXCITED about.
First I’ll just share how I did this – and this project cost me less than $5!
I will also admit that I was not able to take pictures of it step-by-step because Lilly was extremely wiggly when I put the paint on her feet and I did not want paint all over everything. So you’ll just have to use your imagination. Continue reading →
So we hosted Thanksgiving at our house for the first time this year and it was my first time ever making the turkey! The turkey turned out DELICIOUS (not to toot my own horn or anything) – but we had A LOT leftover.
And after a while turkey sandwiches and other plain turkey dishes get kinda old. So, I wanted to spice things up and I threw some ingredients together and came up with a post-Thanksgiving (or post-Christmas if you have turkey like we do) leftover turkey chili.
