Get Ready for You | Advice from Grandma Nola

My Take Care of You post was one of my most popular ever, and I’ve been blogging 8 years! Y’all loved the wise advice from my Grandma Nola and she got a kick out of it too!  I was talking on the phone with her last week and she was telling me that at her age, 91, she remembers the past way better than what happened yesterday.


She has wonderful memories of growing up healthy and happy in rural Missouri, being raised by her Aunt Bernice and Uncle Mack.  They lived very modestly on the farm,

Just (the best) Sales

Hi friends! How’s your week going?  Mine started off so strong! I got my early Monday morning workout in, but by mid-day, a stomach bug had taken me out. Those are the worst, especially when they hit you outta nowhere. I’m better now, and just trying to catch up.

I still had fun sitting in my jammies on the couch scouring the best sales for you!  This week is a good one!

TRIPLE POINTS at Nordstrom & Nordstrom Rack & Hautelook starts today and ends Sunday!

Three Fabulous Work Outfits with a Pop of Leopard

Starting working at 16, I’ve had my fair share of interesting jobs.  I started at Dandy’s Car Wash, washing, vacuuming, and armor-alling cars after school and on weekends.  I loved earning my own money for the first time in my life, but my nails were a mess!  While still in high school, I worked at a flower shop arranging floral bouquets; a dental office, Famous Footwear, and TJ Maxx.

During college, I realized I could make a lot more money (in a shorter amount of time!) waitressing and bartending and that’s what I did to put myself through school.

HWH Fitness Challenge Week #3 | Protein Brownies & Core Workout

Hi friends!  We’ve made it to Week #3 of our Fitness Challenge!  We are almost halfway to our 30 day goal!  I have to admit that I really struggled last week.  I was swamped with life and work commitments and a ton of rain made my favorite go-to exercise (running/walking outside) impossible.  I still managed to get in lots of exercise, but I didn’t do my challenging group classes, which always makes me feel so alive and strong and energized when I go.

On the food front, I ate bad 2 days in a row, and then really felt like crap.

Outfits Lately | 25 Summer to Fall Outfit Ideas

Good morning Friday!  Every Friday feels so good because that is when I try to take the afternoons to do something fun with my Mom and Jordan, and today we are planning to do some Fall decor shopping at Hobby Lobby.  If that doesn’t get us in the Fall mood, I don’t know what will! I’ve also been trying to dress for fall while it’s still warm out so I wanted to share a round up of summer to fall outfit ideas.

I’m also still on a high from last night’s Project OneWay.  The show was so fun and even though I was so nervous/excited beforehand #jitters!,
