self  Welcome to Pink Thoughts & Espresso Shots! I will admit this blog/website is a work in progress… which is a nice way of saying I have no clue what I am doing. This site will hopefully turn out to be a strong cocktail of Midwest living and fashion. I just decided that it was time to do something I felt passionate about (insert cheesy groan… followed by an eye roll). But for real…I do not claim to know everything about fashion or have a bottomless check book (I have no clue how people afford these amazing bags, shoes, and clothing they post about all day long on instagram – #imjealous). Nor, am I the poster child for a Midwest lifestyle. What I do know for sure is that I love living in Iowa and I know what I like when I see it.

My credentials go as follows: I am a wife and mama of a beautiful girl named, Ella. I currently work a full time job, which is a blessing, but I have always hoped that there may be more to this life then my 8-5. The thing is you have to actually make a plan and not just dream about it all day.. so here goes!! I hope that everyone enjoys the blog and that it inspires people to do what they are passionate about.. even if you are not an expert:) #staytuned
