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

Father’s Day Gift Guide | All on AMAZON

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.

Hi friends!  How’s your week going?!  It’s just a hop, skip and a jump to the weekend now!

We’re celebrating our friend Tarah’s birthday tonight with a girls’ dinner and I’m so excited to see everyone.  We used to get to see each other so often- inside the school at assembly during drop off, during school events and get togethers, but we’ve been missing those opportunities.

The girl time will definitely do us good!

Hi friends!  Happy Friday! Well, my haircut was a success and I’m loving the shorter length!  Even just a couple of inches off the bottom and cleaning up the layers feels so good!  My friend Shelby has been doing my hair for over a year now and I love how she does it.  Plus, she’s my sis-n-law’s BFF, so she’s basically part of the family!

Here’s my OOTD right before I headed out to get my haircut. I threw on my trusty Good Vibes tank and it’s still good as ever,

Hi friends!  Welcome to a fresh, new week! Our Spring Break has come to an end and it’s back to school for the kiddos.  I’m still not sure we got used to the time change, but we’re forced to get used to it now!  Hello 6:00 a.m.!!

We helped my brother and his family unpack into their new home on Saturday and having not moved in over 11 years, I was quickly reminded what a big job it is!  But, I love the satisfaction of an empty box and James was such a big help too!  Jordan and I were lucky to get naps in on both Saturday and Sunday,

Hi friends!  I hope you’ve had a wonderful week and are looking forward to a restful weekend.  My brother just moved into a new house so we’ll be visiting them this weekend and other than that, we don’t have any plans.

I think even a two-day road trip to San Antonio wore us out!  When we got home, I unpacked, cooked, cleaned, did laundry and then took a big, 2-hour nap!

This week on the blog, I shared what I packed for our trip, the best sales and new skincare,

Looks for Less

Hi friends!  It’s almost the weekend!!  Yay for that!  And I got my sprinklers fixed yesterday, so I can water my bushes again!  Some of them are so brown from the freeze, but Jose said he thinks they’ll thrive again.  Remember, I just cleaned up the landscaping last Spring!  I’d hate for everything to die within a year! At least the patio still looks good!

Thank you so much for letting me know you enjoyed the Looks for Less post.  We all want to make the most of our budget and you don’t have to spend a fortune to look good!

Hi friends! Happy Friday! I love it when we make it to the weekend! We celebrated James’ birthday yesterday and I can’t believe he’s 11 now! I shared with him the scrapbook that I created before he was even born and how I documented my labor and the first three months of his birth, practically by the hour! He was teasing me saying it was kind of creepy!  I guess he’s got a point! Ha! 

We had a fun week on the blog, sharing a new Loves GIVEAWAY, February Rewind and Top Sellers,

Hi friends!  Yay for Thursday, it’s just a hop, skip and a jump to the weekend now!  We could use a do-over for sure!  Yesterday, James got his braces off and I so remember that feeling of thinking your teeth look SO big when you first get them off.  I had braces when if was in high school, and he’s only 10!

He looks so good and is getting so grown up now!  I swear he’s gonna pass me up in height soon!

I know y’all appreciate seeing affordable finds and the Nordstrom vs.

Hi friends!  I hope your week is off to a great start!  Yesterday, as soon as Jordan woke up she said, “time to wake up, I don’t wanna be late to school on the first day back!”  It’s so funny because we got there before the doors even opened! Along with several other cars!  I guess we were all excited to get back!

Hi friends!  It’s SO good to be back here with you for a brand new week with power, heat and water!  Last week definitely took a toll on us, but thankfully, things are pretty well back to normal for us.  ♥ I know lots of people are still feeling the effects of the storm with broken water pipes, school cancelled, and all the things that have gone along with this unprecedented Texas weather event.

It’s been heartwarming to see us all pull together to help each other and, if you missed it, I shared a list of resources and links to help in my weekend newsletter.

Books I’m Reading in 2021

Hi friends!  I hope you’re week is going amazing!  I can’t believe we’re already this far into February with Valentine’s Day just around the corner!  At the beginning of this year, I cancelled my cable.  I’d been thinking about doing it for a long time and honestly, I don’t miss it!  There’s still plenty of watching options available since I have Netflix, Amazon Prime Video (Mad Men is on there;) and YouTube.

I do love HGTV, Bravo and Food Network, so if I really end up missing those networks, I can always subscribe to Hulu in the future.
