How are we already at the end of August?!  Shannon and I were just talking yesterday and she remarked that once September hits, it always feels like Christmas is just around the corner.  September also is when I try to stop buying toys for my kids because we need to leave some things for Santa to bring!

But, before we dive into the August rewind, I wanted to send my sincere thank you for your kind comments on my lawyer story.  I had no idea y’all would be interested in it and that alone touched me deeply.  I’m so glad it resonated with you and I’m looking forward to sharing Part 2 next week.

This was a busy week on blog, starting with Amazon fashion faves, 4 ways to style a white tee, and the best sales.  I’m pooped!  I think writing yesterday’s post took a lot out of me- I actually cried while I was writing it.

Then, I got a sweet surprise yesterday that I get to be Jordan’s classroom parent!  I’m so glad, especially because it’s her first year at school and it’s been an emotional roller coaster so far.  I hope back-to-school is going well for those of you that have started already!



August was full of Fall fashion and y’all really liked my Target post with 40 outfits and the Old Navy postLOFT was a close second!

We miss my mom so much!  We were used to having her here Monday through Thursday since Jordan was born and now that Jordan is at school, we don’t see her as often.  Luckily, I’m having a get together this weekend for Labor Day, so we’ll have all my family over.

Mom and I took a special girls trip to visit nearby Waco, TX and the amazing Magnolia Market!  So, so fun!
