Friday Favorites {Blog Makeover}

Hi friends...TGIF!!

...notice anything different here at KC&CO?!

I promise it's still the same old me...

you know, the weird girl
that writes about the most random of things.

As you can see, I got a new blog design and I'm thrilled about how it looks! It's much more me :) Want to know the best part? It is a premade template and was sent to me within 24 hours. I knew I wanted to change things up, but I didn't want to shell out a bunch of money to have a custom design..that's where the premade template came in. I didn't have to do it myself {phew} and it was such a fast turnaround! How awesome is that?

Thanks to Laura from Laura Jane Designs!
Go visit her page..just don't steal my template or ELSE.

and guess what? I'm joining all you cool kids...

so if you like me at all..please add my button to your blog :)

Today I'm going to share my favorite things that I've discovered this week.

1. Lauren Conrad's blog - The Beauty Department: You all know how much I want to be her and just love her fashion sense. If you haven't been to her blog yet, go check it out. She posts hair tutorials, favorite products, makeup suggestions, etc. Here's a good hair tutortial for when you are in rush..

2. Organix Brazilian Keratin Therapy Shampoo: I decided to give the Organix a shot. I've seen and heard about their products for a while now and decided to get this shampoo. It smells heavenly and I really love it so far.

3. Starbucks Iced Coffee: tall {depending on the day..} nonfat milk, please. Ok, so I didn't obviously just discover this this week but it HAS done me some wonders this week.

4. The inspiration I got to make a certain wood project for our house. Billy got to working on it this week with some old wood boards from our deck. I can't wait to share this project with you all!

here's a little hint-this isn't exactly what we did, but very similar..

5. Casual off the shoulder tops: I'm loving this easy but cute look.


This weekend the hubby and I are heading to Port Clinton where we will be jetskiing, drinking skinny girls margs, fishing, and boating {we FINALLY get to go out on Billy's dads new boat!}

Hope you all have a lovely relaxing weekend!


  1. Love the new look, so cute! And I am soooo jealous of your weekend...I wanna get out on a boat! :) Have fun!!

  2. Love this post and I love your new background! TOO CUTE and perfect for summer!

  3. 1. LOVE LOVE LOVE the new blog look! Super cute!
    2. I just ran out of shampoo and am looking to make a change...I may be picking up the oranix.
    3. We need to get a Coffee Buzz near you so you can stop with that Starbucks nonsense :)

  4. I love your new blog design. Very cheery and clean. I love your blog because you introduce me to a lot of cool new things I don't know about yet, like the off shoulder tops! I try to be stylish but I live in a ski town so trends take a while to get up here. I'm always the last to know! Unless I head to Denver and peruse the mall. I suppose I could pick up a Vogue or Glamour magazine or something like that but I already subscribe to like 7 food magazines plus Southern Living I don't know when I'd read them. First love is food and entertaining. Second love is looking cute while doing it. :) Thanks girl! You look super cute in your squat pose! How often do you work out?!? Sheesh. Enjoy that pre-kid body!

  5. Again, LOVE LOVE everything sister! I might need to try the organix shampoo! Where did you pick that up at? Target? And off the shoulder tops are my very favorite!! YAY! For your girls weekend!! HAVE A BLAST sister!!!

  6. Loving the new look! And i have to agree with you on lauren's blog. I looove it! I have been a follower even since it first started :)

  9. I am so jealous you are going to put in bay! I haven't been since high school. Will for sure be a fun weekend!

  10. Love the new layout! I've been a big fan of Organix coconut split end mender, but didn't have a good experience with the coconut shampoo/conditioner. I may have to give this one a shot though! Starbucks' iced coffee is my favorite of all the iced coffees - it tastes the best and gives me the biggest wake-up! Happy Friday!

  11. I love that headboard! Can't wait to see what you guys end up doing.
