Please don’t judge. It has been over a year, A YEAR, since I blogged a fashion post and there are a few good reasons. Biggest reason #1. This year has been a year of saving and that means not a lot of clothes shopping. Yet, a pretty cool guy heard me complaining about sans-shopping and treated me to a little Anthropologie gift card. I babied my gift card for the perfect sale options. Thus, this new knit pleat dress over the weekend. It’s comfy, cute and versatile!

Halloween is over and, poof! The retail world is already on holiday steroids. What better way to celebrate than to pick up fresh cranberries and bake a Pumpkin Cranberry Coffee Cake?

I’ll be cozy-ing up to a mug of coffee and this coffee cake in the mornings this week. Especially Wednesday when the high will be 19°F. Hello winter, goodbye fall.

Last weekend my Mountain Man and I celebrated dating 3 years! It’s crazy how fast time goes. We spent the day relaxing at the hot springs and finished our evening with a delicious dinner at Fruition, a local restaurant I have been wanting to go to for ages.

Instead of buying a gift for my guy, I spent the week sewing and tailored a button down shirt for him! I used a Walden pattern (check them out – you’ll be inspired to sew) and found a wool blend fabric to use for the main shirt fabric. A couple special details make the shirt unique, like a personalized ‘Made by Katey with Love’ tag and a contrasting fabric for the interior yoke. He was thrilled and was nice enough to let me snap a few photos during the Broncos game on Sunday, thus the Broncos hat. Boys will be boys.

Must anything more be said about how delicious, healthy and filling this Veggie Bun Cha with Seared Tofu was? No. So just do yourself a favor and get the ingredients now.

Love Katey on Election Tuesday. Oh, and it’s colorful too which equals extra deliciousness points.

I found this uniquely shaped mirror when I was antiquing the other day. For $25 I couldn’t it. Even though I did like the gold finish, it was beat up, nicked and dirty. What to do? Spray paint it! A few coats of paint later this mirror has a new life. It will be used in another row home project which I hope to finish up soon, so stay tuned!
