Hi friends! Did you enjoy the Superbowl yesterday? We watched at a friend’s house with a small group of friends and kids. It was so great- lots of yummy food and the kiddos running around in the backyard- half watching the game, half throwing the football. Good old fashioned fun!
Then, during the halftime show, my friend’s mom came running into the house from the backyard shouting, “THERE’S A FIRE NEXT DOOR, CALL 911!” We looked outside and could see the flames! I ran and got my phone and called 911 while gathering the kids to get them safely out front away from the fire.
While I was on the phone, they operator said that the firemen had already been contacted and were on the way. It was so scary for a few minutes, but the fire truck arrived quickly. It turns out the fire was started by a propane tank outside and there was no damage to the house or anyone in it. Thank God!
I know I have a fire extinguisher in my kitchen, but I need to make sure I know how to use it! And I should keep one upstairs too. It’s also a good idea to make sure the batteries in your smoke detector are working. We can never be too safe.
Welcome to February! This is a great month for us with Valentine’s Day, my birthday and Jordan’s 4th birthday! I swear I cannot believe she will be four this month! It’s surreal how grown up she has gotten in the last year! From threenager to fournado!
Now that we’re finally in February, we can take a look back at the longest month of the year – January!
My Amazon posts were the most popular posts of 2019 and they’re still going strong into 2020. I do Amazon fashion posts every other Friday and then do a live try-on on Stories so you can see the pieces ‘in person’. If you want to see all the things I’m ordering and what I recommend, check out my Amazon Storefront. I update it almost daily!

2019 AMAZON BEST SELLERS
We started the new year by sharing the best sellers of 2019, all still available now!
Cutoff Shorts • This pair got worn the most because they’re cutoff chic, but not super short. I din’t feel embarrassed to run errands with my kids in them!
Bracelet Keychain • A favorite of mine and at the Favorite Things party this year. It’s handy since you can wear it on your wrist or hold it in your hand, but it’s also easy to find in your purse.
Sun Hat • I’ll be happy to bring this hat out again when the weather warms up. It saw pool days, traveled with me and lived in my car for sunny drives. It’s sister – the wool hat – is also a hit this time of year.
Tee • This dolman sleeve, boatneck shirt is soft and stretchy and goes with everything.
Jumpsuit • Travel uniform and all-around errand running! It’s perfectly lightweight for summer with tank sleeves, a scoop neck, and pockets. The elastic hem at the ankles is cute too.
Circle Belt • This simple belt is still going strong. I wear both the brown and black all the time!
Packing Cubes • A forever, very useful favorite. You know what these are and have a set for yourself by now, right? I have several sets- different colors for each kid so I can easily differentiate our things.
Good Vibes Tank • This was by far your favorite top of the summer!
Here’s a sampling of some of the outfits in my first Amazon haul of the month. You can click the link above to see everything.
The second Amazon haul had some good things too. Lots of casual pieces, and some fun dresses too. Not to mention the undies y’all went crazy for. #comfortfirst
YOUR AMAZON FAVES
Ponte Legging • These are #1 two weeks in a row! The awesome thing about these leggings is that they fit like a pant with a nice thickness to them and not so super skintight like most leggings. They are very opaque and comfortable at a great price – only $18!
V-Neck Pullover • I’m partial to these quality lightweight knits because they are so comfortable, but still look pulled together. You can dress them up for work or wear causally around the house like I often do since I work from home. Of course, the grey with black hearts is fun, but it also comes in tons of colors and also stripes.
Slip On Sneakers • Another sneaker that is so, so good are these slip on mesh sneakers with over 5,000 positive reviews. I thought they looked cute on the website, and I’m happy to report they are awesome in person! Cute + comfy! They are so lightweight, almost like wearing air on your feet.
Daily Ritual Skinny Jeans • I seriously live in these. They are a mid-rise jean with a good bit of stretch that fit your body amazingly well without pinching or pulling.
White Deep V Bralette • This one was a keeper and super cute on! The padded cups are removable and it did feel supportive, kind of like the support you’d find in a good bikini top.
Revlon hairdryer + brush in one • It’s saved to my Highlights under “blowout” if you missed it. I love it because it gives me a salon smooth, voluminous blowout so quickly and easily! If you feel like it gets too hot on your hair, use the cool setting. I also always spray “It’s a 10” on my hair when it’s wet because it acts as a detangler, hair repair treatment, and heat protectant.
Waffle Knot Top • Some of the waffle knit tops I’ve tried on haven’t felt very good on, but this one feels great. It’s got a bit of weight to it and has a front twist. It comes in several colors- the red is really pretty!
Star Sweater • I’m crazy for this one too! Perfectly slouchy chic.
Striped Sweater • Yep, we all still love a good striped sweater. I really like the color combo on this one!
I rounded up a month’s worth of outfits to make it through the rest of winter! Spring will be here soon, but in the meantime, it’s still chilly out!
It’s been awhile since I’ve done a Target fashion finds post, and y’all really liked the last one, so I was excited to jump online and see what’s new. I found lots of Hits, one Miss and one Oh, Hell No! Do you want me to include Target fashion more regularly? Let me know in the comments.
I’m happy to see the Spring styles start to roll in at Nordstrom. Here’s a few things I thought were fantastic and vacation ready! Do you have Spring Break plans yet?
This post has a mix of sweaters, short sleeve tops, jeans, dresses and more for ya. Many things you can wear now and while winter lingers on, but also some things that you can start incorporating into your wardrobe soon.
Get this t-shirt and thank me later! It’s so soft and the cut is darling!
V-Neck Teddy Sweater (on sale)

You probably have all of your holiday storage packed up and away for next year by now, but if you get a hankering to declutter and organize it, this post has some great organization ideas.
Thank you guys so much for all the love on my pantry organization! You are my people!
What I’ve realized this year is how important our ROUTINES are. They help keep our house running less like a crazy town, and more like a soft place to fall. I wholeheartedly believe that routines help children thrive and feel safe because they know what to expect. It also helps us stay sane!

Now that my holiday storage closet is all nice and organized, I’m more pumped to add some decor for each season.

I love adding even just a little bit of festive decor around the house.
Tulip Wreath • Valentine Banner • Corkcicle • Kitchen Towels • Apron • Table Runner • Buffalo Check Pillows • Valentine Pillows • Faux Fur Blanket • Front Door Decor • Valentine Paper Pom Decor • Eyelash Mug • Pink Matches
