What To Pack For a Beach Vacation

Thank you to Nordstrom and ShopStyle for sponsoring today’s post.

Good Monday morning to you friends! Did you have a good weekend?  I celebrated one of my oldest and dearest friends’ birthdays on Friday, and then Saturday we celebrated the end of baseball season.  It was a loooong season with no wins, even though our boys played their hearts out.  ♥ Those are hard times for third graders, but I know they are learning lessons and it was always so sweet to see how they supported each other throughout the season.

Sunday, I did a surprise post –

Everyday Makeup Tutorial

Happy Sunday friends!  I hope y’all are enjoying your weekend!  We were expecting loads of rain, but unexpectedly are getting tons of sunshine!

I’ve been asking y’all on Stories what you want to see more of and I LOVE hearing your responses!  Two of the big ones are a makeup tutorial and updated hair tutorial now that I have short hair.

The hair tutorial will be coming up soon, but today I’m sharing my Everyday Makeup Routine.  Head on over to Stories to see it live in action and saved to Highlights.  Below are all the products I use.

Hello and Happy Friday friends!  I hope y’all had a great week.   I’m so looking forward to this weekend.  I need a couple days to catch up on sleep and do nothing!   In the last week, I’ve been to two orthodontists visits for my son and one doctor appointment for my daughter.  Not to mention what feels like 30 trips to Walgreens.  One of which included checking out with medicine for Jordan only to realize I left my wallet at home!  😉

Aside from running kids to doctor appointments, this week was a fun one on the blog starting with my tips for getting in shape when your schedule is jam packed,

This post could also have been called Sparkles & Sun or Sassy & Sweet, but regardless of the cute title, it’s all about dressy gowns and swimsuits all from Amazon!  We recently had our school’s annual Gala and several of my girlfriends got their dresses on Amazon.

Everyone looked amazing and felt fabulous in their fancy dresses.  It’s exciting to get a chance to dress up for a change and look glamorous.  Our theme was Starry Night, so I wore a black jumpsuit with gold flecks, but the gowns really shined!


Especially when it comes to dresses you’re likely to only wear once or twice,

Just (the best) Sales

Hi friends!  Thank you so much for your thoughtful comments and messages on yesterday’s fitness post.  I know we all struggle with not enough hours in the day, but when we make time for ourselves, we get such a big payoff.

I feel like May is one of the busiest months of the year – so many school events, class projects, sports still in session, classroom parties to plan for and coordinate, and getting ready for summer with camps, etc.  It’s a lot!

If you ever get the impression that I have everything under control,
