You guys…I’ve acquired a recent obsession for Patagonias. The first time I ever saw a Patagonia was on one of Ryan’s friend’s girlfriend.  She looked so chic and put together even with just jeans and a simple pull-over and since then I’ve wanted one. However, I recently saw a couple of outfits put together using Patagonia pieces and my obsession was piqued.  So much so that I decided that I needed some Patagonia in my life.…

    Why Blogging is Frustrating and The Hardest Things I’ve Ever Done

    Hello, friends. Today, I need to vent. I started Oh Happy Hotalings in February 2015 with the intention of having it someday be a source of income that I can use to help take care of my family, while caring for my babies from home.  It’s now August, 2017 and I’m coming up on 2 years of blogging.  In July, I made $2.50 from ad revenue.  It’s not an income…it’s not anything.  I suppose it’s a start because I’m still making money from adds every day but it’s not what I had hoped for. I’m not bitching or whining because I feel sorry for myself.  I know that I didn’t…

    Outfit Challenge – 3 Outfits From 1 Rarely Worn Piece of Clothing

    Happy Wednesday, friends! So I saw an interesting post idea somewhere on Pinterest that suggested doing an outfit challenge using a piece of clothing that doesn’t get much use.  When I read that post idea, I had an idea immediately.  A few months ago I got this really long cardigan from Luca + Grae.  I was so in love with it at first but then I sort of didn’t know what to do with it.  I just didn’t quite know how to wear it. So today, I’m accepting the challenge.  I decided to pull out that cardigan and try and give it a new life, especially for summer! Please follow…
