Hi friends!  Happy Friday!!  How’s your week been?  We have Week #2 of school down and now we’re in a much better groove.  I’m usually in bed by 9:30 and getting up by 6 and it feels great!

We’re also more than halfway through the fitness challenge!  How is it going for you?  Access all the FREE workouts, meal plans, and fitness trackers here.

I’m so glad y’all are enjoying my new series Tuesday Goodies!  Next one is a fun one too.

Your Coziest Fall & Neutral Fall Decor

Your Coziest Fall & Neutral Fall Decor

Hi friends!  Happy almost Friday!  How’s your week going? Today is a fun day – two of my favorite people were born today!

Brian and my longtime (25 years and counting) friend Maggie!  So funny that they share the same birthday!  I guess I like Virgos -my Mom is one too.:) We’re taking Maggie out to lunch at Perry’s Steakhouse today, and then we’re having a special dinner for Brian with his sister and her husband.  It’ll be my first time meeting them, so fingers crossed it goes well!  What should I wear?! 

I’ve started sprinkling Fall decor around my house and it’s gotten me so in the mood for all things Fall and cozy!

Hi friends! How was your weekend?  Mine kicked off with a super fun date night on Thursday!  We went to Brasserie 19 and had good wine, a delicious meal, easy conversation and lots of laughs.  It feels so good to be having adult fun again!  I know y’all want all the dirty details, ha!, so I started working on a ‘dating after divorce’ post that I’ll share as soon as it’s ready.  It’s taking me awhile since there’s so much I have to say on that topic, but stay tuned!

On Friday, we celebrated the first week of school in the books!

Hi friends! Happy Friday!! This is our last weekend before school! I literally cannot believe it’s finally here. And now that it’s upon us, I’m ready and I think the kids are too.

We’ve been getting school supplies and uniforms ready and having Zoom calls with the teachers and reviewing all the materials for the new safety procedures. I know it’s going to be different, but I’m just so thankful and grateful for our teachers and all of the staff at the school who have worked so hard to make this school year happen.

Extra gift cards for everyone!!!

Good morning Monday! I hope y’all had a great weekend! Thank you SO much for all the love on the Nordstrom vs. Amazon post.  I truly enjoyed putting that post together for you, and given your enthusiastic response, I’ll definitely do more for you.

In fact, I found these chain link mules on Amazon that look identical to the Steve Madden pair at Nordstrom.  The Steve Madden pair sold out in the tan color, but they have other colors still available.  The Amazon pair looks like it might not ship until September,

Hi friends! Happy Friday!  I’m so ready for the weekend!  I feel like it’s been such a busy two weeks, but also really fun.  I’ve so enjoyed pouring over all the Nordstrom Sale goodies, getting together with Ali-Shaun and Tarah and then chatting with all of you via comments, email and DMs.  I’m so happy we get to connect here and when you let me know my posts are helpful to you, it really makes my day!

Today’s post was SO FUN for me and I hope you like it too!  It took a really long time,

Hi friends, happy Monday and welcome back to my blog!  What a fun weekend I had getting to spend 24 hours with my girlfriends at Jamie’s ranch. We talked and laughed, got in the pool, drank spicy margaritas and ate the best fajitas! We watched a movie under the stars and Tarah took us on a frightening exciting gator ride through the woods.

It was a short visit, but I’ll take what I can get at this point!  It had been so many months since I’d seen these girls!

I know a lot of you are looking forward to the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale which starts tomorrow for Icon card holders,

Hello friend, happy friday!  It always feels great to make it to the end of the week!

This weekend we’ll probably just be hanging around the house, enjoying the updates to our landscaping!  Thank you so much for all your sweet comments about it- it really made my day!  All those little improvements really made a big difference and now I’ve got a bad itch to paint the exterior.  But I’m not sure what would look good with our existing stone.  Guess that project needs some more thought and research!

How did you like the latest Gibson collection?

Hi friends!  Happy Monday!  I hope you had an awesome weekend and Father’s day!  I had some time to attend to lots of little odds and ends and it feels great to get those nagging to-do’s taken care of.  I got the mirror in my dining room hung up, power washed my driveway, sprayed the yard with mosquito repellant and reset the sprinklers to water more often, ordered a new battery charger for Jordan’s ride-on car (she hasn’t been able to drive it for months because that charger broke) and today I’m making an appointment to get my front gate fixed.

Hi friends! Thursday means one step closer to the weekend! Not that we have any plans! Ha!  Have you been doing anything fun on the weekends?  Houston feels like it’s s l o w l y getting back to normal, but we’re still home most of the time.  I would love to take the kids on a summer trip, even just a weekend getaway, but we haven’t booked anything.  Do y’all have any summer travel plans?

Father’s Day is approaching in less than two weeks, June 21st to be exact.  Not that the women need reminding! 😉  We remember everything!

Hi friends, welcome back and thank you so much for being here.  I know this has been an emotional week for many of us.  Lots of us are feeling weary and drained and all I can think is, if that is how I feel now after just one week of all this attention on race and social injustice, imagine how the people who have been experiencing racism their WHOLE LIVES must feel.

No wonder people are pissed off.

And hurting.

It’s starting to sink in on another level.

I used to think that I wasn’t part of the problem because I have real life black friends that I absolutely adore and so do my kids.

Hello friends and happy Friday!  It’s been six months, but I finally got my hair colored and a fresh cut and I feel like a new woman!  It feels so much lighter and fresh and I’m so thankful that I was able to get this done and support my friend’s business in the process! We took all the safety precautions and my stylist is in her own sealed room, so that was  especially perfect right now.  Have you gotten your hair done yet?  I know many of you are READY!

Today, I have a fun new Amazon dressing room post for you!

Hi friends!  I hope you had a great weekend!  Mine was pretty chill with a few runs at the park and a long awaited get together with a couple girlfriends.  I’ve lost count of what week of this situation we’re in, but I know it’s been too long since I got to see my friends.

We are all being careful and taking safety precautions and thankfully a couple of us were able to meet up in honor of Trisa’s birthday.  I know it meant the world to her and to us too.  We’ve been friends since college and I can’t believe we are in our 40s now!

Hi friends! How are y’all doing? I’m in a much better groove this week than I was last week.  I have a new printable helping keep my top goals on track, and you are welcome to use it too! The older I get, with more responsibilities and especially as a divorced mama, the more important my routines are to my daily sanity.  Having things kind of on auto pilot makes the daily grind much more doable.

Today I have a new Amazon fashion post for ya.  If you’re new here, I typically do them every other Friday,

Good morning friends! Welcome to a fresh new week!  I used to dread Mondays, then somewhere it switched and now I love them!  But, that’s really only if I get my chores done on Sunday night and wake up not feeling behind!  Last night, I was up late cleaning the kitchen and getting things situated, and that makes waking up on Monday morning so much better!

I’m also training with my trainer twice a week via a Facetime call, and one session is always on a Monday. It gets it done and helps set the tone for the week.  Now that our weather is getting so much hotter,

Hi friends! How was your week?  Mine was on the low side.  I guess some weeks are just like that.  It was hard not getting to celebrate Ali-Shaun’s (and other friends’) birthdays with them, homeschool is taking a lot of energy, my kids miss playing with their friends and it’s hard to stay in a positive groove.

And it rained a bunch, so we didn’t get to hang out in the backyard that much.  But, we still love the recent updates!

I do feel like I kinda turned it around yesterday with a good at-home workout and trying on these Amazon clothes for this post.
