I have been on a Fall strike through the entire month of September. I have been in full force refusal mode to acknowledge that “fall” is happening before it actually happens. Let’s stop jumping the gun people! Why are we all drinking $5 PSL’s when it is still 97 degrees outside? And why does the Pumpkin Spice Latte have an acronym? And why are we paying $5 for a beverage? (I am sure I will… just asking.) Also, let’s cool it with the Christmas decorations… alright Target?! For Pete’s sake! Let’s let summer leave with a little dignity!

But now that Fall is here… LET US CELEBRATE!!!!

I am a true fall lover… except for living in San Diego, we don’t really get that “fall feelin”… no fall smell, no fall leaves, no cider mills, (we do have starbucks and pumpkin spiced drinks though…) I mean, we have a little bit of fall… It’s just not the real deal. It’s a fall knock-off.

So this year I have planned a trip to Massachusetts & Maine in October. The fall MECCA!!!! Leaves, cider mills, apple picking, tractor rides, cranberry bogs, pumpkin festivals, not to mention white picket fence beaches, lobster rolls, ferries and lighthouses.


So in the spirit of the season, I wanted to show you all that I am obsessing over. Ideally, all of these pieces would be coming to the Northeast with me. But, budgets say otherwise. Ugh, budgets. I’ll pick two or three pieces perhaps, instead. :)

What are you loving this fall??

Simple Blueberry Basil Pie Recipe

Blueberry Basil Pie - Headed Somewhere BlogMy mouth and lips have been stained blue for the past 3 days. As of this morning, the pie is FINALLY gone. And I am embarrassed to say Clay doesn’t eat blueberry pie. Oops. So aside from the 5 extra pounds I put on this weekend, I also gained a go-to pie recipe to add to my recipe book. It’s kind of perfect, very easy, and oh, so delicious. It’s derived from the Blueberry pie recipe on She Wears Many Hats blog and mixed it up just a tad. Basically, I have heard basil does amazing things for the typical blueberry pie and I just so happened to have an overgrown basil plant in my kitchen. So why not try! Turns out… they were right, it is amazing.

For filling you will need:

all-purpose flour for dusting work surface
pie dough for double 9-inch pie crust, chilled
2½ pints (5 cups) fresh blueberries
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tablespoons milk or cream
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
½ cup brown sugar + extra for sprinkling on top
¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup freshly chopped basil
1 large egg, beaten with 1 tablespoon water (for egg wash)

For the perfect pie crust you will need:

2 cups flour (sift, then measure)
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup shortening
1/4 cup ice water

Headed Somewhere - Simple Blueberry Basil Pie Recipe


Mix flour and salt together. Cut in shortening with a pastry blender until crumbly. Stir in ice water with a fork until dough holds together. Form in two rough balls. (Note: handling too much makes dough tough. 

On a lightly floured surface, roll out half of dough to ⅛-inch-thick circle. Fit into a 9-inch buttered pie pan, trim, leaving about ½-3/4 inch overhang. Cover crust with plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator for about 30 minutes. If making a full top crust, roll out remaining half of dough into a circle approximately 1 inch larger in diameter than pie pan, cover with plastic wrap and chill in refrigerator for about 30 minutes. If creating a lattice top, on a lightly floured surface, roll remaining half of dough ⅛ inch thick into rectangle approximately 11×14 inches. Cut into 10 separate ¾ inch strips. Cover strips with plastic wrap and chill for about 30 minutes.


(from She Wears Many Hats blog)

Adjust oven racks, place one rack on bottom level and one in the middle. Place baking sheet or baking stone on bottom rack. Preheat oven to 400-degrees F.

In a large bowl whisk together lemon juice and milk, gradually sprinkle in 4 tablespoons of flour, whisk until smooth. Stir in brown sugar and cinnamon. Add blueberries and chopped basil, and stir to coat. Let sit for about 5 minutes. Pour into prepared bottom crust.

Brush the rim of the crust with the egg wash, place the top crust on, trim to ½ inch larger than size of pan, and crimp together edges with fingers to seal bottom and top crusts, or weave strips of dough to create lattice top, crimping edges to seal. If dough seems soft and warm, cover top with plastic wrap and chill pie in refrigerator for about 20-30 minutes.

Brush crust with the egg wash, sprinkle lightly with sugar and place pie on baking sheet or baking stone on bottom rack and bake for 20 minutes. Reduce heat to 375-degrees F and transfer pie (on baking sheet) to center rack. Cover the rim of pie crust with foil. Continue to bake at 375-degrees F until crust is golden and the filling is bubbling, about 30 to 40 minutes. Check crust every 10 minutes or so, and if crust/lattice starts to brown too much, tent pie loosely with a piece of foil. Let cool to set and thicken before serving.

Ezra, not to my surprise, was being extra clingy the moment I started baking. He was testing my pie-making skills, (and patience), for suuuure.IMG_4066.JPG IMG_4131.JPG

I’ve always been a little wary and intimidated by the lattice pie crust. But I found a simple tutorial that might help if you are new to latticing… :) Click here to watch tutorial!

Hair Tutorial // Braided Headband

This is for all of you out there who are hair/braid challenged. It has taken me SOOO long to figure out how to braid my own hair. 27 years to be exact. I’ve just mastered the fishtail french braid… feeling pretty good about myself. HAHA!

But I went back to an old staple today… one that I used to do a while back before I sat down with youtube videos and forced myself to learn to french braid. This is one that ANYONE can do with shoulder length, or longer, hair. Also, your hair doesn’t need to be very thick to make this look alright… unlike so many braids. I have very fine hair… turned out alright!

Grab a piece of hair from behind your ear and begin braiding upward toward the other side of your head. Do the same on both sides. Pull and loosen the braid as you go to make it look thicker/fuller. Secure the braid with a clear elastic.

Take each piece, wrap around to the other side and pin behind your ear.

Leave some hair in front of the braid to give it the “headband” look.

And thats it! Takes about 5 minutes… total do-able “mom” hair for any day! (I also wore it up the next day in a messy bun with the braid still intact after I slept in it… haha… dirty hair for the win!)

five minute terrarium

Headed Somewhere Blog - Terrarium TutorialThere are few places on this earth that make my heart pound a little faster, make me feel giddy like I’m a kid and make my mind overflow with inspiration: The very top of Angel’s Landing in Zion National Park, walking the avenues of Manhattan and this little succulent & cactus garden that sits just 2 minutes from my home. I just can’t stay away. As I walk around each of the 9 green houses stock piled with the most beautiful plants I have ever seen, I can’t help but feel like Mother Nature herself. The first time I visited this place, I literally SKIPPED up and down the aisles. The next day, I paid another visit… and then the day after. Not sure what it is about it, it just feels welcoming, homey, and for some strange reason, I feel I am doing something wholesome and productive just wandering the gardens… perhaps I am. I am nurturing my spirit. I leave happier than when I came.

On this particular day, it was cold, (as cold as California weather permits…) and drizzling here and there. Perfect day, in my opinion, to get out of the house! With the weather warming up, I had to take advantage of this chilly day and put on Ezzy’s Pan Pantaloni Vest. It KILLS me with its ears and the pantaloons… oh, too much. I am in love.

I have had this terrarium for MONTHS now, it has been sitting sad and empty on my dresser… just waiting for little plants to house. The day has finally come! So I thought I’d share my little how-to… because I’d like my little new friends to LIVE… against all odds… because heaven knows when it comes to mothering plants, I am no good.

Cactuses and succulents don’t need to be watered much. I usually give them a little spritz with a water bottle every couple weeks and they seem to be doing great!


I just have to leave you with this video, because these little kiddos might be the cutest ever with their warrior face paint and head wraps. I’m thinking of dressing Ez in his pantaloons and vest and painting his face like this next time we hit up Target. Is that weird? I don’t care, I’m doing it.


Good Days Ahead

Headed Somewhere Blog

Ezra has been all out of sorts lately and I feel like I am losing my sanity. He is doing some major teething, poor thing has had it rough for about a week. We have been spending a lot of time outside, it seems that is the only thing that brings him comfort these days. For me, every day seems to be the same and drags on forever. I know it won’t last, things will get better. I have to keep reminding myself how he usually is: a sweet, cuddly, loving little boy. There are more good days than bad and as my Dad always says, “this too shall pass.” Great days ahead. I can feel it. Send happy thoughts and good vibes our way!

you are enough, my friend.

My relationship with social media is similar to my relationship with my long time high school boyfriend. We were on, we were off, I was in “love”, I never wanted to look at him again. Sometimes things were pretty good and I thought we made a pretty great team, and other times he would put everything I had ever given him in a box, bring it to my house and run over it with his car while I watched. (That’s where it ended. Very symbolic and artsy, really… Oh! The drama.)

My Facebook days have long since passed. We broke up years ago for reasons I don’t need to discuss here. But Instagram is my love and my nemesis, my friend and my foe. I can say this knowing I am not the only one. Studies show that when we receive a “like” or “comment” on one of our Instagram posts, there is a small burst of endorphins that run through our body. “Ooo! Someone likes me!”, “someone whom I have never met thinks I am pretty!”, “someone approves of my breakfast!” It’s a fact people. A sad fact. When we post something and nobody “likes” it, we fall into a deep dark hole and only a quart of Ben & Jerry’s and a Sandra Bullock movie can bring us out. (That last part isn’t verified by scientists, but it happens.)

So here is the bone I’m pickin’ with Instagram, (and any other form of social media for that matter, Instagram just happens to be my drug of choice.) It will kill you. You will die a slow and sad death if not managed correctly. And managing with complete and utter indifference is a very hard thing to do. There will always be someone who outdoes your posts; someone whose life looks MUCH more put together than yours. They are up at 7 a.m. making lemon ricotta pancakes, #organic, in silk pajamas for their 4 children, #blessed, while each one of them is dressed in designer clothing and playing together quietly by the open fire. #dancingtosinatra #isntlifeperfect. Well that’s the thing, it’s not perfect, and that’s not real. I have found myself obsessing and comparing myself and my life to THIS! Thinking I need this, I don’t do that, last but not least, why don’t as many people like ME?!

It’s sad you guys. Really sad. But I want to be real with you. I have been that person sulking in the corner thinking my life doesn’t compare. But guess what, my life is my life and it’s perfect and fine just the way it is. I have laundry up to my eyeballs because our laundry machine has been broken for a month! I can’t even remember the last time I made a home-cooked meal and I RARELY do my hair. I brush it like 3 times per week. And that’s fine. Because that’s me, that’s us. And when I’m not busy comparing what we have to what I THINK other people have, we’re pretty happy. I wouldn’t mind a new washing machine though. #openfordonations

I read somewhere a short essay by author Judd Apatow …. And by “somewhere” I mean a chipotle paper to-go bag, (See? My lack of home-cooking brought me to this brilliant epiphany. Winning already.) “When I was in high school there were 500 people in my graduating class. Out of those 500 people I had two best friends and five other real friends. So I had a true connection with seven people and did not have a true connection with 493 people. Now I create stories and hope that 500 out of 500 people will appreciate the work. That is impossible. I don’t love most things I see or listen to, why should they? The truth is I should be happy with seven people being touched or amused by my work. I think it is okay to accept the fact that most people won’t get you. We don’t need to like each other so much. We need to be kind and respect each other.”

I have 2,850 followers on Instagram, and guess how many people called me on my birthday? 3. Guess how many people I meet for lunch on a regular basis? Um… probably 2. And the number of people I keep in touch with via text or phone call is around 12. I don’t think anyone on the face of this planet has more than 30 “real life, I see your face all the time” friends. I mean, that would just be exhausting. Unless you’re Taylor Swift, then maybe you have more.

you are worth it - my bone to pick with InstagramSo here’s the bottom line. I just want to let you know that you are enough. You are beautiful, important, special and worthwhile. Even if you can’t take a decent photo if your life depended on it, maybe you aren’t a photographer by trade! Who cares! You are fabulous and wonderful.

Am I going to be quitting social media anytime soon? I don’t think so. Here’s the problem. I am a sucker for that silly little app. I love taking photos of my little one, I love seeing what people had for breakfast… I truly do, it’s a funny thing… and those FILTERS! I can’t stop editing photos, it’s an unruly obsession. But the comparison needs to stop. Like yesterday. I need to be greater and better than what the numbers on Instagram tell me. I need to stop beating myself up. I am me, and I am enough.

a gifting guide // bring on Christmas cheer!

Headed Somewhere Gifting GuideMadness is happening at my house. We are still surrounded by boxes, our mattress is on the floor and we have been spending our evenings sitting on the rug in the living room because we are still without a sofa. Christmas is nowhere to be found except for the one sad reindeer candle holder obscurely placed on the mantle that managed to make its way out of the Christmas box somehow. It’s not even holding any candles, poor thing. Random knick-knacks and do-dads are scattered around the house without any place to go… (that’s what you get when there is no organization in your packing procedures.)

ANYWAY, with the season fast approaching sans Christmas-like feelings; I have decided that I needed to lift my Christmas spirits by creating a gift guide for him, her, and the little one in your life. Because hey, there’s nothing that makes it feel more like Christmas than swiping that credit card, right?! Just kidding, that’s terrible. Trying again: Because there’s nothing that makes it feel more like Christmas than finding that perfect gift for that special someone.  That’s a little better.

So this is for all you procrastinators and dawdlers. I’ve got the solution to your gift-giving stupor. Yes, there are only 9 days until Christmas, but 9 days is just enough to put in that last minute order online and get your gifts here on time! I’ve put together the ultimate list of go-to gifts for the special lady, main man and the little one in your life. So you’re welcome.Headed Somewhere Gift Guide

Wear That Bebe!! // Wildbird

WildbirdAs a new mama it can be so overwhelming to know which baby products are ABSOLUTELY necessary and which are the “fluff”. For example: I thought we absolutely needed a portable changing pad. Nope. I usually end up changing him wherever is convenient, my lap, the seat of the car, trunk … you get creative. I was sure I would need about a million baby seats, one for every room in the house. This one vibrates! That one bounces! We have one that sways side to side! Now my home is scattered with so many baby chairs I’m not quite sure what to do with them. A bottle warmer, baby wipe warmer, baby bath… the list goes on and on.

My Wildbird ring sling, on the other hand, is something I didn’t think I needed from the get-go. Boy was I wrong! I honestly couldn’t live without it. It’s my go-to when Ezra is fussy or tired while we’re out n’ about or even at home. He will be content or even asleep right away. I have used it to nurse him while on the go. The extra “tail” left over is a perfect nursing cover.

I have been using my Wildbird sling since he was just tiny, and now that he’s older he loves being able to sit on my hip to see what I’m doing! Not to mention he is the most cuddly little guy! (I hope he stays this way forever!)

WildbirdNow let’s back it up with some cold hard facts:

Carried babies cry less. In a study published by the Journal of Pediatrics, researchers found that babywearing for three hours a day reduced infant crying by 43 percent overall and 54 percent during evening hours*. Babies thrive through touch!

Proper babywearing helps promote optimal brain, hip, spine, eye, social and emotional development. When a baby is worn in the sling he/she becomes aware of the wearer’s movements. This stimulation helps baby to regulate his/her own physical responses and exercises baby’s vestibular system, which controls balance.

Research has also shown that premature babies who are touched and held gain weight faster and are healthier than babies who are not**. Babywearing has so many benefits for not only baby but the wearer as well. Wearing your baby has shown to reduce stress hormones in new mamas which help fight postpartum depression. The wearer has two hands free which enables the wearer to get chores done, shop, or play with other children.

WildbirdQ: Why should I use a sling ring?

A: Ring slings are the easiest way to wear your baby (no wrapping or buckling). After a few times of practice, getting your baby in and out of the sling will become second nature. See our tutorials.

Q: Why is the sling made out of linen?

A: Linen is made from flax. Flax is one of the strongest natural fibers. It is three times stronger than cotton. Linen is a woven fabric that never loses it shape. It is also highly recommended for children and adults due to a non-allergic feature which makes it a great microclimate for skin. In addition, linen is the most suitable fabric for hot summer climates because of it’s cooling and refreshing effect. On the other hand it has a warming effect in winter. How? Flax absorbs sudden temperature changes and has outstanding moisture absorbency. Linen also protects skin from harmful ultraviolet radiation.

Q: Are ring slings safe?

A: Yes! Our greatest concern is you and your baby’s safety. Wildbird slings are made from the highest quality aluminum rings available. Each tested to ensure your child’s safety. Use the sling properly and please study and practice the tips on the safety page.

Q: Are your rings certified?

A: Yes, our rings and manufacturing process are RoHS compliant. The rings are made from seamless aluminum which is heavy metal and toxin free. General certification of compliance with the CPSC/CPSIA can be made able by request.

Q: What do I do with the tail end of the sling?

A : You can simply leave the tail hanging or wrap it around the rings to get it out of the way. The tail can also be used as a nursing cover or sunshade.

Q: Is the sling portable?

A : Yes, it can easily fit inside a diaper bag or purse.

Q. Where are your slings made?

A : They are made in Salt Lake City, Utah.

So cuddle up close to that little babe!! It’s good for your baby and good for your soul. :)

the ULTIMATE list of baby must haves

ultimate baby listI have noticed that so many of you are mothers, or mothers to be! I also know how daunting it can be to gather all the necessities for a newborn. Especially while pregnant! So this list was made for you. Great for your last minute shopping or for a baby registry.

I am pretty lucky to have 3 older sisters who literally know everything there is to know about… well everything. Especially babies. Between the three of them they have 10 kids. I would say that warrants for some pretty legit baby cred. Before Ezra was born, my sisters helped me gather everything I could possibly need under the sun for this little guy. I also added a few things recommended by my midwife and Bradley Method teacher. Who knew a person so tiny could need so many things! Goodness!

So there ya go! For the over-prepared, overly cautious mothers out there, you’re welcome. :) Everything on this list is not absolutely NECESSARY, but it makes your new crazy life that much easier having everything on hand, avoiding any last minute trips to the store at 2 a.m. Don’t see something on the list that you loved and absolutely had to have? I’d love to know!


marriage after baby // keepin’ the knot tied tight


I received an infinite amount of baby advice before Ezra arrived. So much, I didn’t know what to do with it all. I felt as if I needed to carry around a pen and paper so I didn’t miss out on pertinent information that would save me down the road from a major crisis. But I have found that the most important piece of advice is often left out. That is, keeping your partner your top priority. I ran across this article and it really spoke to me. As I was going through the self test questions I found me answering, “no…no… no… I am NOT easy to love!” Ok, step one – recognizing the problem, complete. As terrible as it sounds, sometimes I have to stop and think,
“this is your companion, your best friend, the person you vowed to be there for through thick and thin! Now WHY ARE YOU SO UPSET??!!” And this is the thick ladies and gents. Whether you just had a baby and things seem to be coming loose at the seams, (laundry, sanity, maybe even literal loose seams with the extra lbs we tend to put on during those difficult times), or you are going through something else, or hey, maybe your marriage is great, but could always use some improvement! I believe these tips can be used in any sitch…

Found this article on It spoke to me. It made so much sense. I have placed these little questions in the back of my mind for a couple weeks now, practicing being an easier spouse to love, and I truly believe it has made a difference. Maybe Clay hasn’t even noticed, but just for me, and my crazy psyche, it has been a lifesaver. I couldn’t remember the last time I initiated the “i love you.” Clay says it every day! And I say “I love you too”. Telling Clay I love him, as silly as it sounds, made a huge difference for me. Hope you find this article as helpful as I did! Let me know what you think!


Let’s face it: Sometimes marriage is just hard. There will be days when you and your spouse can’tagree on anything, there’s a mountain of laundry to be done, the dishes are piled high in the sink, there are unpaid bills scattered across the counter, and a baby is crying in the background. At these times, it’s very hard to feel love toward one another. I’m ashamed to say that, at these times, I find myself taking my frustrations out on my patient, long-suffering husband. As if things weren’t already hard enough for him, he’s now got a shrew of a wife blaming him for everything that’s gone wrong.

Are you a wife who is easy to love? Do you give your husband reasons to sing your praises and brag about you to his buddies? Honestly, I know I’m not always that kind of wife, and I’m betting there are others like me out there. You can test yourself on your own loveable-ness by answering the following questions based on your experiences and actions. Consider the possible answers as being Always, Often, Sometimes, or Never.

1. Do you give your husband credit for things he does to help around the house?

Everyone likes recognition and men are no exception. Make sure you notice what he does to help out — running a load of laundry, vacuuming a room, playing with a child so you can have a few minutes to yourself — and thank him for it. He’ll be more likely to do it again.

2. Do you tell your husband you love him?

I’m not talking about the knee jerk, “Love you, too,” you say when he tells you he loves you or a sleepy, “Love you,” as you lie in bed at night. I’m talking about an intentional moment when you give him a hug or a kiss, lock eyes with him and tell him in all sincerity, “I love you, sweetheart.” Men like to hear the words as much as women.

3. Do you perform acts of service for him?

Men have tough days, worries and frustrations just as frequently as women, but they’re not always as vocal about it. Any little act of service you can do to show your husband how you appreciate him can make his day a little brighter and his burden a little easier. Give him a back rub, make him his favorite meal, run the car through the wash without his asking you or do some other thing you know he loves but doesn’t get to experience very often. There’s nothing more gratifying than the look of surprise and gratification in a man’s eye when you surprise him with something he loves.

4. Do you have open lines of communication?

Don’t suffer in silence when something is bothering you. One of two things will probably happen: either you’ll end up shutting your husband out, making him wonder what he did wrong, or you’ll make the problem worse because you’re not addressing it. Make sure your husband knows what’s going on in your life. That way he can work on changing the offending behavior or help you deal with whatever is causing you to stress.

5. Do you accept his compliments?

Women have a hard time accepting compliments because they often feel they don’t deserve them or the person complimenting them is “just saying that.” Chances are your husband really means it when he tells you your hair looks nice or your dress is sexy. He doesn’t analyze statements or motivations like you might do, men just don’t think that way. But if you don’t accept his compliments or you laugh them off and not take him seriously, he’ll be less likely to compliment you in the future.

6. Do you ask for his help?

Men like to feel needed. One way they can demonstrate their love for you is by helping you when you need it. If he’s not busy or sick or stressed himself, don’t be afraid to ask for his assistance with the kids or dinner or the cleaning. It’s another way he can show you how much he cares.

How did you do on those questions? You can easily score yourself. If you answered Always or Often on most of the questions, you can be reasonably assured you’re a wife your husband can easily love. Those questions you answered Sometimes or Never might give you ideas of how to better show your husband love and allow him to do the same. Implementing those ideas will bless your family and your marriage.
