EPantry- A Convenient Solution for Household Shopping

I recently, after the prompting of my friend Anna, joined ePantry.


It was super slick to sign up, choose the items I’d normally buy elsewhere and order them to be shipped to me.

I decided I had nothing to lose by trying it and placed an order for several Mrs. Meyers products I’d normally purchase along with some toothpaste and shave gel.

I was super excited when the box arrived but that quickly changed to disappointment when I opened the box and found that one of the soaps had leaked so everything had a thick coating of soap on it.

But. My ePantry experience doesn’t end there. I let them know about it and they handled it like pros by sending me a new box and assuring me that what happened to me was definitely not typical.

I was impressed, not just by the way they handled a customer service issue but the variety of items I would normally purchase being available on the site, the prices AND the free shipping.

Right now ePantry has a special deal for YOU, my friends and readers.

Join today using my link and you’ll receive $10 off your first order AND a free Grove candle.

No exclusions, no shipping cost and no obligation to order again. It’s pretty much win, win.

My 6th Stitch Fix

My 6th Stitch Fix came this past week. I’ve been trying to schedule one every two-three months because they are typically a little bit more than I would usually spend on clothes but it’s been really fun to see what comes each time and I also know that many of the items I’ve received are things I wouldn’t normally have looked at or even tried on if I saw them in the store.


This is what I got:

1. Pixley Jakobe Maxi Dress $78

I knew I would love this one when I saw it in the box and even though I probably don’t need another dress in my closet, I’m keeping it. I already wore it out to dinner last night.


Decision: KEEP

2. Mystree Monica Dress $68


In theory I liked this dress but I didn’t like it on myself. Too tight and too much stripes going on.

Decision: RETURN

3. Papermoon Bastille Tulip Sleeve Blouse $38


This is the perfect top to dress up or dress down for a professional event or a dinner out with friends and the price point? Perfect.

Decision: KEEP

4. Chambrai Norene Linen Cuffed Shorts $64


When I saw these in the box I hated them and contemplated not even trying them on but then once I tried them on I didn’t want to take them off. Super comfortable and actually really cute. That said the $64 price tag is pretty high for a pair of shorts.


5. Fun2Fun Sheridan Striped V-Neck Tab Sleeve Blouse $48


I immediately thought I would love this top when I saw it in the box but then I put it on and it felt too short and too boxy for my liking.


Decision: RETURN

My First Stitch Fix
My Second Stitch Fix
My Third Stitch Fix
My Fourth Stitch Fix

And just like that our youngest, our last, our little Frannie. She’s two. Two years have never gone so fast, yet, it’s as though she’s still our babe that we’re carting here and there and everywhere. I am loving this age and stage with Frannie. She is busy and funny and so, so smiley. She […]

On The Best Yes I Can Give Myself.


Last week, because of life’s commitments, my inability to say no and everything landing on the same week I found myself out four nights out of five. Three of those nights were “work” related and these evenings were in addition to going downtown a couple days, doing some media work within my community and trying […]

But I’m Not a Wicked Stepmother! Review


I gave up on most blended family and stepmom books years and years ago. I found most unrelatable or unrealistic and the worst culprits- the “faith” based ones that told me that prayer would make everything work out just fine. {Yes, I’m a believer in prayer but I’m also a believer in good, ol’ fashioned […]

On Cinderella


Miss E and I went to a prescreening of Disney’s Cinderella last week and to say we loved it is quite an understatement. Disney really outdid themselves this time. The movie is breathtaking and beautiful and true to the fairy tale yet made today and I promise it will be a beloved favorite. The story […]

On Yellow Paint


In March 2006, my mom came over and painted an entire little room yellow in preparation for my first baby. We didn’t know if we were having a boy or a girl so the room was yellow and I spent many an afternoon wandering through Pottery Barn dreaming up just how I wanted it to […]
