Shopping Secrets: Pottery Barn Teen

Can I tell you a secret? I love kids' home items. Like LOVE them. My biggest goal when we moved into this new home was color - fun, complete color. I may be getting on in years but I didn’t want to have an overly mature home because this is our grown up place- that’s just not me. I want pattern, personality, and color. One of my biggest secrets? Pottery Barn Teen. I find the best stuff on their website. Their lighting in particular is super great, and for some reason, cheaper? I mean- shop for what you love OF COURSE and if it's worth the investment, wonderful, but I'm super impressed with what I've found on Pottery Barn Teen and frankly, the Pottery Barn Kids site. I may have a less mature house than most, but I'm telling you, I'm having a good time with it! Below, I'm sharing a few of my favorite current finds, including Georgia's chandelier which is one of my favorite pieces in the whole house.

I mean look at the price on this and it's totally perfect. Would be great if I ever call the electrician and have them put a chandelier above our kitchen table.

How's this for mature and modern? Amazing in a dining room or a bedroom... or frankly hanging in a foyer, this piece has versatility and range.

We have this in Georgia's room and it fits her personality perfectly, but it would be pretty cool in a hallway or a bathroom too. That boho look at a great cost and the size is ideal for a lot of different options.

For all of the blue and white fanatics (myself included) this pretty watercolor print can come framed from Minted. It's beautiful and can stand out on its own (over a bed frame) or smaller, in a gallery wall. Would be beautiful on my blue and white collection bookshelves, too.

Ok this is super childish - but it's perfect for a nursery or in particular, a gameroom or playroom. I love this with your Last Name - so modern, on-trend, and super fun.

Love this in a hallway or in a bathroom. Beautiful color scheme and again attaches itself to a more bohemian-inspired look.

In my head, this belongs in a boy's bedroom or nursery, but how fun would it be in a closet or hallway? It's neutral enough, but the camo would be great under mixed metallics for a desk or office space too?

Curtains are an opportunity for pattern and color. This gives you pattern. I actually really love these in a dining room, assuming you're not blocking much of the natural light. Would be perfect in a bedroom as well! Simple, fun, patterned!

Obsessed with all things tie dye. This is the perfect blue color and I love it in a mudroom. Nothing like walking into your house to be greeted by some fun color.

Big Blanket Co. and Valentine's Day Plans

What are you doing this Valentine's Day? I actually teach Pure Barre in the evening (sorry Jeff!) and I'm volunteering with Georgia's school at her party that afternoon, but my morning is wide slam open with Bodie Charles. Looking forward to sharing donuts, tickles, and a fun book. His favorite things!

A former coworker with Mac & Mia recently started working at Big Blanket Co. and when I started following them on Instagram, I knew I had to try one! These blankets are seriously incredible. Huge, obviously (10x10!) - so it's great for sharing, and of such high quality. Seriously, all four of us fit under this thing this past weekend! This is the Premium Woven Blanket in Gold Cream Geometric and while I love it on our blue couch, I have a feeling it's going to make it's way up to our bedroom for the winter. The perfect weight and I can't get enough of the boho-inspired print. Bonus: it's machine washable, so eat your donuts without worry.

If you're thinking about getting one, click right here, and use the code SNUGGLE15 to save 15% off! It's currently on sale too! Our blanket shipped super quickly, it would make a great Valentine's weekend gift. It's the perfect upscale blanket for your living room or bedroom - and frankly, I can't wait to use it on the deck this summer on cooler evenings!

Two of our Favorite Football Recipes

Given that the "big game" is tomorrow, I wanted to share our favorite football recipes. I could live on dips and appetizers alone, 100%, so I'm happy to share these tried and true recipes. We'll definitely be indulging on Sunday!

Kicked-Up Spinach Dip from How Sweet Eats
**This is a pricier dip to produce, but man is it delicious.
Makes 3 cups of dip

  • 8 ounces (1 block) cream cheese, softened
  • 8 ounces sour cream
  • 4 slices bacon
  • 1/2 medium sweet onion, chopped
  • 1/4 red pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 green pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped mushrooms
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 bag spinach
  • 1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese (we use goat cheese here... and definitely more than 1/3 cup)
  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. In a large skillet, fry bacon, then set aside to drain on a paper towel, leaving grease in skillet. On medium heat, add onions and peppers with a pinch of salt and saute until soft, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and saute 5 more minutes. Add garlic and spinach, stirring until spinach wilts. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, mix cream cheese and sour cream with a hand mixer (or even just a spoon – just make sure it is combined). Fold in spinach, pepper, and mushroom mixture. Fold in blue cheese or cheese of choice. Fold in bacon.
  4. Pour dip in an oven-safe dish and bake for 20 minutes, until top is golden brown and dip is warm. Serve with pita chips, crackers, bread and veggies.
**We made these a few weeks ago and they were just SO good. We made the buffalo sauce glaze.

For the wings:
  • 5 pounds chicken wings, tips removed, drumettes and flats separated
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
For the buffalo sauce:
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ cup hot pepper sauce (such as Frank's)
  1. Preheat the oven to 400. Prepare the buffalo sauce: Mix butter, cayenne pepper, black pepper, and salt in a medium bowl; let stand 5 minutes. Whisk in hot sauce; keep warm.
  2. Set a wire rack inside 2 large rimmed baking sheets. Toss chicken wings, vegetable oil, salt, and pepper in a large bowl to coat. Divide wings between prepared racks and spread out in a single layer.
  3. Bake wings until cooked through and skin is crispy, 45–50 minutes.
  4. Line another rimmed baking sheet with foil; top with a wire rack. Add half of wings to ginger-soy glaze and toss to evenly coat. Place wings in a single layer on prepared rack and bake until glaze is glossy and lightly caramelized, 8–10 minutes.
  5. Toss remaining half of wings in Buffalo sauce. Serve immediately (no need to bake them).
