May Rewind & Fitness Challenge Announcement!

Just one more day of school!!  Is it that time in your house too?!  My son is giddy and frankly, I am too!  I’ve mentioned before, but we have no plans.  I think we’ll spend a couple weeks decompressing, and then figure it all out!

30-Day Fitness Challenge

Can I tell you what I’m also super excited about?! Launching a 30-Day Fitness Challenge next Monday, June 4! #HWHFitnessChallenge The last few weeks I’ve been off my workout game and totally feel it.  Now that summer is upon us, I’m ready to jump start my fitness regime, and based on your response to my Story and this Instagram, you do too!

We’ll focus on food, exercise and wellness with a printable to keep you motivated and a place to log in and track your progress to keep you accountable! I can’t wait to see how many minutes of exercise we can log in 30 days! Let me know in the comments below if you’re in!

It’s only 30 days and will end on July 3, the day before the 4th of July!  Let’s do it!

MAY REWIND

May is a month for celebrating Moms! We started with a Mother’s Day Gift Guide and then enjoyed the day at the pool.  Being a mom is my favorite thing in the whole wide world and I couldn’t be more blessed to be James’ and Jordan’s mom.  I’m so very thankful for them.

#DressingRoomDetails

With the weather heating up and lots of new summer arrivalS, I had three dressing room posts this month.  If you missed any of them, check them out here, here, and here because lots of picks are marked way down, especially with the Nordstrom Half Yearly Sale that ends Sunday!

I stepped in my bedroom dressing room again to review 6 pair of awesome jean shorts for you, from long to short! I know we all feel comfortable in different length shorts and you might need a longer pair for a school event or more conservative occasion.  There’s something for everyone in this post.

Did you hear how I almost lost my lashes after wearing eyelash extensions for a year? I was so freaked out after I took the extensions off and was left with barely any lashes! Thankfully, I found a miracle product that helped me grow my lashes back and now they are long and full again!

I’ve gotten lots of questions about my mircrobladed eyebrows, so I took you along with me for my one year Microblading touch-up ! Probably the biggest fear about microblading – aside from making sure the shape turns out perfect – is “does it hurt?”  The answer is not really. There’s also a video!

Blogging Inspiration

In April, I went to the rewardStyle conference in Dallas with some of my blogging besties! It’s always a good time with lots to learn – as well as a bit of a fashion show! You can see what I wore for the weekend of events, and my blog tips for anyone out there looking to start or grow a blog!

Grow Your Blog

After 8 years of running this blog all my myself, I finally asked for help and it’s been the best decision!  I realized that without another set of hands, I wouldn’t be able to keep up with the kind/amount of original content I wanted to share, social media demands, and still personally respond to each and every message and DM.

Shannon has quickly become my right arm and there’s a lot more fun and laughter around here with her by my side.  Meet her here and see what she’s been doing!  You can also peek in on Stories to see what we’re up to on the daily.

  5. Yes! So excited! I am leaving for a beach vaca right after the 30 day challenge! Just in time. Can’t wait!

  6. Take me with you! I need all the help I can get. I have never done a fitness challenge before but willing to try since I feel like I am in need of more support to keep motivated!!

  7. I am in for the challenge! I just finished one with some of my sorority sisters and worked down to my pre-baby weight…now it’s time to kick it up and tone what’s left! Gotta be a good example of a healthy lifestyle for the kids 🙂

  8. I’m in. I’ve lost about 20 pounds (with about 15 to go), but the weight is coming off so slowly I’ve lost motivation. Maybe this will help.

  9. I’m in for the challenge…..been feeling a bit down on the 10lbs I’ve gained. Support will help!

  10. I’m so in for the fitness challenge! You are always such an inspiration for all things fitness – thanks for giving your readers an opportunity to participate!

  11. I’m in and so is my husband, but he doesn’t know it yet – ha!! We eat pretty clean, but I’m excited to start the workouts!

  13. I’m ready for the challenge! Thank you for taking the time to do this for your readers! 🙂

  15. I’m in. Thank you for initiating and leading this. I need the accountability, especially for the nutrition!

  16. I’m so excited for your fitness challenge! I’ve been exercising but feeling the need to add something new to my routine! Excited to see your food and nutrition tips too!!

  17. I’m in on the fitness challenge! I was doing great before my tonsillectomy in April and although I’ve gotten my eating back on track since then I haven’t been on top of my workout game. I’ll take any push I can get!!

  18. Definitely up for the fitness challenge! I am so lazy and make every excuse under the sun including the fact that my husband works away for 3 weeks at a time but it is not impossible to fit in 30 minutes a day. I just need to find something to make me accountable!

  19. Please count me in! Winter went on forever in the Midwest, which I blame for my 5-6 extra pounds. I could really use the motivation and the accountability. Thanks for doing this!

  20. I’m in for the fitness challenge! I had a baby 6 months ago (so kind of have an excuse), but have also been neglecting my eating/exercising (way more than the baby-excuse will cover, LOL) and this sounds like it could be a fun way to get back into taking a bit better care of myself! Like Skyla above, I’m across the pond in the UK.

  21. Let do this!!! June is gonna be a BIG month here (twins graduate on the 9th) But Momma needs to look and feel her best!!!

  22. I have been losing the same 10 lbs over and over again! Ugh!!
    I am feeling gross and unmotivated. I need some inspiration.
    Looking forward to the challenge.

  23. I’m definitely in for the fitness challenge! I’m in two weddings at the end of summer and could use some motivation to get into the gym!

  24. I’m in for the fitness challenge! I need some summer motivation and accountability! Exactly what I need before we head on our summer vacation in mid-July. Thanks for initiating this—your blog is amazing, and you just the cutest!

  25. Yes on the fitness challenge! I’m in! LOTS of late nights in the legal world lately (as I’m sure you remember!) so I could really use a summer jumpstart in the fitness and meal department. Thanks!

  26. I’m in on the fitness challenge! I’ve needed a boost to get moving, drop a few pounds and feel better for a long time. What better way than with a blogger I already admire! Thank you! 🙂

  27. Absolutely want to take part in the fitness challenge. I need some motivation right now, here in Ireland. Love your blog, style and fam?

  28. I am in. Something to hold me accountable! Thanks for doing the hard work for us. Looking forward to it!

    1. Congratulations on your new little one! 3 months isn’t that long and you are probably still not getting your full amount of sleep, so give yourself grace! I’m happy to have you join in! 🙂

  29. Let’s go! I’m headed on vacay in August, so this is perfect timing!
    Thanks so much!

  30. I had my second baby 7 months ago and my old workouts are not helping me lose the baby weight. I am excited to try something different!!

  31. I’m definitely up for the fitness challenge!! I usually work out everyday and I’m pretty good about watching what I eat, but I’ve been kind of in a rut lately. I think this is just what I need!

  32. I am in for the challenge! I’m a mom and teacher, and the beginning of summer is the perfect time to get healthy!

  33. I am sooo ready to start a fitness routine!! It has been too long and I need to get my energy back! Thanks for inspiring me on your blog and for starting this challenge!

  34. I am so thankful you are taking us along with you on the fitness challenge. Count me in! ?

  36. Totally up for the challange! I need to get back in the gym, perfect motivation! I need to lose 10lbs of baby weight, baby is only 7 weeks, but this momma is ready to fit back in all the pre pregnancy clothes!!!

  37. I so excited for the 30 day fitness and can’t wait for the home workouts, food, etc. Thank you so much for doing this. I have currently lost 20lbs but would like to lose at least 5 more so hoping to accomplish this in the next 30 days!

  38. I’m up for the challenge! My workouts have been inconsistent with new work responsibilities so this is the kick I need to get back on track. And the exercise will definitely help with the work stress!

  39. What perfect timing! I am ready and excited for the Fitness Challenge. In the past, I’ve heard you reference macros and tracking them. Can you give us more insights? I have a wedding in September and plan on looking my best. I’m delighted to be able to do this with a group

    Thanks, Megan!

  45. Love your blog – I’m from Houston too! Going to to the 30 day fitness challenge with y’all. My goal is 4 stubborn pounds to lose this month. Doesn’t seem like a lot but I’ve trying to get it off now for 4 months.

  46. I’m in too! Thank you for doing this- Looking forward to having the added structure and motivation 🙂

  47. Yes I’m in!! Need to get the last of this baby weight off and could use some extra support/motivation:)

  48. I’m in, not feeling confident having at least an extra 10# on me more than usual & haven’t been finding motivation to buckle down, thanks!

  49. I’m in for the challenge! With the kids being out of school, I’m going to need help holding myself accountable with going to the gym. I REALLY need to clean up my eating too!

  51. Count me in for the fitness challenge! My goal is to work out for 30 -45 min 6 days a week, eat right and get toned! Fingers crossed, haha!

  53. I’m in!! I do Orangetheory 3-4 times a week (most weeks) but my diet is NOT on point. This is just what the summer needs! Bring it on :))))

  54. I’m in! Due to an unexpected, recent surgery, I haven’t been able to work out like usual and am not comfortable with how I look heading into summer.

  55. This is so awesome! I have been reading your blog forever. Can’t wait for your help in the fitness and heath area!

  58. Hi there! Love your blog! I am in for the fitness challenge! I leave for a beach vacation July 1st and would love to be fitting in that swimsuit some much more nicely before then! =) Plus I could use some real accountability in my fitness, honestly.

  59. I’m in! Can’t wait to work together, if I twiddle my thumbs and finish your challenge, will I have a abs like you!!??

  60. I am in! So excited! Lots a traveling and weekends away from home this month but that’s more of a reason to step up my game. You are defiantly my fitness inspiration so this is going to be a great learning experience.

  64. I am so in! I’m already doing a stairmaster challenge (alternating 40 min / 20 min daily) so this fits in perfectly.

  65. I’ll give it a shot. After a week of end of year celebrations , its time for some cleaner eating!

  66. I am in. This challenge is perfect after I over indulged during my recent vacation and also to look good for my next vacation 🙂
