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!View Post
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.View Post
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.View Post
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.View Post
Good morning friends and happy Friday! Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? Brian and I had planned to go out of town, but ended up changing our minds. Perhaps another time. 🙁 I’m pivoting and will be working on some home projects, getting ready for Jordan’s birthday, and then James’ birthday is just around the corner! These kids are growing up too fast!
We had a fun week so far on the blog with How to Organize Everything in your Kitchen,View Post
Hi friends! Happy Friday! It’s been such a busy week here, maybe because it was short? All I know is that I’m really looking forward to the weekend again. Even though I’m sad that the kids aren’t able to participate in sports this year, it IS nice to have weekends free and not be tied to commitments. I guess we all have to look on the bright side these days.
Today’s post is an Amazon capsule wardrobe, which has been highly requested by many of you. I know that we all get in fashion ruts and it’s helpful to get new ideas for how to mix and match pieces in your wardrobe.View Post
Hi friends! Welcome back to my blog and cheers to the weekend! It’s been a week, that’s for sure! It’s painful to see what’s been happening lately, but I vow to keep this blog a space of positivity and light in your day. I know you come here for fashion and fun, so I plan to deliver that to you. It doesn’t mean I’m blind to the events, or don’t care, I just prefer to stay cheerful and happy here. Thank you for understanding my heart!♥
TOP AMAZON OUTFITS OF 2020
Amazon fashion has become a fun passion of mine,
Hi friends! Happy New Year!! Did you have a good New Year’s Eve? I rang in the new year with Brian and one of our favorite couples, Steve & Jessica.
Our evening was low key and also a lot of fun hanging out together. We popped a bottle of 1998 Dom Perignon that I’ve had in my wine cabinet forever! What better occasion to drink it than the start of 2021!
With Brian’s help, I’ve been doing a bunch of home decor projects over the weekend. He helped me put James’ new gaming desk together, and since it’s an L-shape,View Post
Hi friends! How was your weekend? We kicked off Friday afternoon with Christmas break and just came home and chilled, which was so nice. I got some wrapping done and Jordan and I baked sugar cookies. She actually had more fun playing with the dough than decorating the cookies!
We also did our annual tradition where I take the kids to Target and let them shop for each other (& me)! I think it’s so sweet that my son wants to make sure I have something to open on Christmas morning and they love picking out something for each other!View Post
Hello friends and happy Friday! I got my hair done yesterday and I feel like a new woman! And I’m dragging taking James to get a haircut on Saturday- I can’t wait to see his cute face again!
This weekend we’ll get our hot cocoa ready, put on our pj’s and go look at Christmas lights. It’s one of my most favorite traditions and some Houston neighborhoods go all out- it’s so fun to see! Maybe after that we’ll come home and watch a Christmas movie.
And I really want to finish up my Christmas shopping.View Post
Hi friends! Welcome to a brand new week after such a lovely long weekend! I ate my weight in all the Thanksgiving goodies and definitely need a good workout today. I’m still stuffed! Over the weekend, I alternated between decluttering, cleaning and shopping! Gifted myself this! 😉
I also ordered our Christmas cards and hope they get here quick! I LOOOVE the photos Tisha took and I’m so happy I jumped in a few. I know we’ll be so happy to have these in the future.
Did you do any shopping this weekend? Still have gifts to buy?View Post
Good morning Friday! Anyone else SO READY for the weekend?! What a week it’s been! How are your nerves? I was freakishly checking the news all day on Wednesday, but finally slowed down on Thursday. Doesn’t look like there will be any real answers anytime soon.
If you follow me on Stories, I had so much fun chatting with y’all and answering your questions!View Post
Hi friends! Thank you so much for the love on our Thanksgiving dining room! It felt like it took forever to redecorate the room, but now that it’s done, I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out! It’s the first room you see when you enter our home, so it’s really nice to have it all prettied up!
I’ve been sharing little goodies on Instagram Stories every Tuesday, but I wanted to share here too in case you missed any. These goodies are nothing extravagant, just little things that make life a bit sweeter.View Post
It’s crazy how many awesome sales are out there right now and I’m really happy with my own purchases yesterday. Y’all know I love my T3 curling iron (I use the 1.25 inch), but the 1 inch curling iron is on sale for Prime Day, along with the T3 hairdryer and I snatched up both!
I also got this lighted magnifying mirror for my old eyes bathroom.View Post
Hi friends! Happy AMAZON PRIME DAY!! It’s Amazon’s biggest sale of the year and it’s happening NOW! Since Amazon is clearly a place I shop frequently, I’m giddy over this event!
Think of it as Black Friday plus the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale rolled into one because it’s across all departments on Amazon!

I’m so happy with my Prime membership because not only does it get me fast,View Post
Hi friends! Welcome to a brand new week! We had a great weekend (minus having to head out of the house to do laundry)! We went to Dewberry Farms with my family and cousins and it’s really so good to get everyone together. It was dang hot so we were all sweating, but it was worth it!
