Hi friend! Welcome to a brand new week!  Our family got together to celebrate my mom’s birthday this weekend and I love our time together.  I’ve mentioned before, but our family is so small, and I’m so thankful for our tight knit group.

I’m also really excited to be heading to NYC with Brian this week!  I’m meeting him there since he’ll already be there on business and we’ll extend his trip through the weekend.  We’ll be celebrating his birthday on Friday and I’m really pumped to get to explore the city this time of year!

Hi friend!  What a frenzy of a week!  I guess that’s what happens when you have a long weekend!  I’ll take it!  I’m already looking forward to this weekend with the kiddos and a whole lot of doing not much.  But, the special part is we’ll be celebrating my mom’s birthday Sunday.  We love her so much and she’s a huge part of our daily lives!

I’ve been a bit under the weather this week and we had major technical difficulties streaming Amazon Live, but we finally got it working yesterday.

If you missed it,

Hi friend! A big, fat YAY for Friday!  I swear, it’s been a week here!

My daughter was sick with a stomach bug and there were many sleepless nights and lots of sheet washing and baths involved.  Also included was a not-so-fun trip to the emergency clinic, but thankfully everything is okay now.

These are the weeks that make me want to eat all of these in one sitting! I literally went to make them on Wednesday night, but I didn’t have all of the ingredients on hand!  🙁

I hope you had a great week and have fun or no plans this weekend.

Hi friend!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend!  Mine was really nice, but one more day would be awesome! We got some things done around the house, including work in my son, James’ room.  I can’t wait to share that with you tomorrow!  He moved from his old bedroom into the rarely used ‘media room’ and loves it!

We also went out to eat a few times- if you’re in Houston, we sat at the bar and had great food at Union Kitchen on Friday night, then ate an early dinner at Barnaby’s Cafe on Sunday.

Hi friends!  Yay for Friday and for the weekend and the end of the first week back to school.  We made it!  I think we are all pooped, even though it was just two days.  The excitement and adrenaline of a new school year always gets the kids up early the first day or two, but by day three, it’s already lost its luster!

Thankfully, we have the weekend to catch our breath and recharge.  We don’t have any plans on the agenda, but since it’s still so hot, maybe we’ll head to the pool to cool off.

Hi friends! Yay for Friday!  This week has worn me out and I’m so looking forward to a weekend with no plans!  We might go to the pool and I do have some things I want to do around the house, but we don’t have any commitments.

I’ve started making a list of all the little projects I want to do around the house and the list is long! Some of the bigger things include a half bath and laundry room makeover.  But, first, our wooden fence should be getting replaced next week.   I already had to have the gate rewired a few weeks ago and my grill still isn’t working.

Hi friends and YAY for Friday!  I was supposed to go fishing with Brian and his girls at his company ranch this weekend, but the dang cold kept me home. 🙁  It’s okay though- I don’t want to get anyone else sick and I’m sure there will be a raincheck.

I am starting to feel better after going to the doctor and getting a steroid shot plus medicine.  I even went for a slow walk around my neighborhood yesterday and that felt really good.  I feel like I haven’t exercised in forever.  A little break probably did my body good,

Hi friends!  I’m coming to you from Florida today!  We all arrived safely, but the weather is rainy, rainy, rainy!  But, at least we’re all here together.  Hopefully the weather clears up soon and we’ll be enjoying the beach and sunshine soon!  We went to the grocery store when we got here and now we’re fully stocked and ready to roll.

Did you score any good deals on Amazon Prime Day yesterday?  I shared the top fashion finds with you HERE, the best beauty finds HERE and today it’s all about home decor,

Amazon Prime Day | Most Loved Beauty Items of All Time

Hi friends!  I hope you’re having a wonderful weekend!  And Happy Father’s Day!  Our kids wouldn’t be who they are without him and we’re so very grateful!  The day is always bittersweet for me since my own dad passed way too young.  We miss him terribly and it feels sad that he didn’t get to meet two of his grandchildren.  We keep his memory alive though, and talk about ‘grandpa’ all the time. If you’re missing your own dad right now, I’m with you. ♥

On another note, I’ve been a busy little bee packing, organizing and cleaning, and getting ready for our trip to Florida.

Hi friends!  You know we’re so happy for the last.day.of.school today!! It’s been a roller coaster of a year, but I’m so proud of how well the kids did with all the changes.  I’m also grateful for our teachers who gracefully navigated these uncharted waters and yet gave it their all to make sure the year was a success.  God bless them!

I had such a good time in Dallas yesterday with my girls!  We had a chance to catch up in person and there is just no substitute for hugs and laughs and face-to-face conversations.  ♥ We did a photo shoot for the upcoming Gibson x Hi Sugarplum Summer collection

Hi friends!  I made it to Dallas and I’m so pumped to be here!  It’s about a four hour drive from Houston, so not too bad.  I just listened to podcasts and it was actually nice to just have some chill time in the car by myself!  If I’m driving, I’m fine, but as a passenger, I’m likely to fall asleep on a long drive!

I have a brand new Amazon fashion post coming up for you tomorrow, but while I was on the site, I found some great things for Father’s Day, so I’m sharing that with you today!

Hi friends!  What a much needed weekend!  I took some time to recalibrate my life by creating a month end/month start checklist and then got busy checking things off off!  It was really helpful for my mental sanity, so I’m going to make it a monthly thing and I’ll share in more detail with you soon!

I’m also back to my regular routine of making a daily checklist of t0-dos and that’s caused me to be much more focused and productive each day.  It really feels good to be on top of things instead of feeling like you are treading water!

Hi friends! Yay for Friday!  It feels like forever since I’ve had a date night with Brian- I think it was two weeks ago, but our schedules just haven’t lined up lately.  But, tonight we get to go out to dinner with Rhonda and Ali-Shaun and their hubbys!  They met once briefly at Tarah’s baby shower, but tonight will be the first time we get to really hang out and talk!

It was a fun week on the blog, if you missed it I shared everything you need for a fun backyard BBQ  (all on Prime),

Hi friends!  Welcome back to my blog and welcome to a fresh, new week!  As much as I LOVE the weekend, I’m also one of those weird people who like Mondays.  I enjoy the rhythm of the slow weekend, followed by a GSD start to the week.

I prepare my schedule for the week on Sunday with all my workouts, appointments, blog posts and to-do’s so I’m ready to go with a plan on Monday morning.  And I’ve made it a habit to do my favorite workout class on Mondays- it’s an hour HIIT/weight lifting class taught by Colleen- a woman in her 60s with the best personality and motivation.

Hi friends! Yay for Friday!!  It’s another week down on my 9 Weeks to Beach Body and it’s going really well!  I feel like I’m getting in a groove and starting to see results, which makes it feel worth it!  I’ve been tracking my food to hit my macros so I lose body fat and keep/gain muscle.

All the details are in my free Weekend Newsletter, so if you want to follow along, sign up here!  My next update goes out Sunday!

We have a lively weekend with family on the agenda.  We’ll be hanging with my brother and his family at the pool on Saturday and Sunday,

Hi friends!  Happy Friday!  I’m off to celebrate Ali-Shaun’s birthday tonight with a group of our girlfriends, so that will be wonderful!  And if you’ve been wondering, I already have plans to have her back on the blog this summer!

Speaking of summer, have you made any plans?  Brian and I are planning a trip to Florida in June!  Our Mexico trip gave me major Summer fever!  Now, I’m ready to kick booty on my healthy meals and really stick to my workouts.  I want to look and feel my best!

Thank you SO much for all the comments on my 10 tips to simplify your life post.
