Hello friends and happy Friday! After today, I can officially say we survived the first week of school! And it’s only been three days! I’m exhausted, the kids are exhausted and we all need a day to decompress from all the newness, excitement and stress that comes from going back to school. I think this weekend we’ll just chill and recoup and get ready to do it all again next week!View Post
I hope y’all had a great, relaxing weekend! Ours went too fast, how is it Monday already?! I’m so glad we got some pool time yesterday – a welcome break from my computer and the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Have you had a chance to shop it already or are you waiting ’til Friday when it opens to EVERYONE?!
On Wednesday, Ali-Shaun and I will be sharing our Nordstrom Sale activewear picks. And we get double doses of our favorite girl because she’ll be back again on Friday for a new dressing room post with 20 Fall outfits from the #NSale!View Post
Good morning Friends! Are you moving slow from Fourth of July? Me too! I’m having a hard time remembering that it’s actually Friday since yesterday was a holiday. My mom and I went to Waco, Texas and visited Magnolia Market and made some other fun stops along the way. I got lots of pics and videos I need to share soon. I’m giddy over what I brought home for me and the kids.View Post
Good Monday morning friends! Did you have a good weekend? I had a fun girls’ night out on Friday night with my friend Karen. We grabbed a seat at the bar at La Griglia and were surprised when a woman sitting a few seats down offered to buy us a drink.
When we went to say thank you, it turns out she was a follower of my blog and we ended up chatting with her and her husband for two hours! Brenda, it was wonderful to meet you and I hope our paths cross again soon! Maybe we’ll see each other at The Story church.View Post
Happy Friday friends! How’s your week been? It was our first full week of summer here and we’re livin’ on summer time for sure! I’m already missing my morning routine, but I think it’ll be easier to get back at it next week when James has camp in the mornings. Isn’t it crazy how quickly we fall into the late nights/late morning situation?!View Post
Hello friends! I hope you enjoyed the long weekend and your short week is off to a great week! We’re so happy that this is the last week of school! I’ve heard so many of your kiddos are off already and we’re jealous- it’s summer fever big time over here. I can hardly get James to go to bed- he thinks it’s already summer!
Today, after loads of digging, I’m sharing a new Amazon fashion faves. I’ll be doing a live try-on on Stories soon, and as always, saving it to my Instagram Highlights. In the meantime,View Post
This post could also have been called Sparkles & Sun or Sassy & Sweet, but regardless of the cute title, it’s all about dressy gowns and swimsuits all from Amazon! We recently had our school’s annual Gala and several of my girlfriends got their dresses on Amazon.
Everyone looked amazing and felt fabulous in their fancy dresses. It’s exciting to get a chance to dress up for a change and look glamorous. Our theme was Starry Night, so I wore a black jumpsuit with gold flecks, but the gowns really shined!

Yay for Friday! How has your week been? I’m still beaming with pride at James’ performance in the Lion King last night. I knew that Simba was a big role, but actually seeing his acting was thrilling! He was so into it and took the part very seriously. All the kids did a wonderful job and you can tell they just had a blast putting on the show. So so proud of them and thankful for our teachers!View Post
I got my hair chopped even shorter yesterday and I love it! It feels so fresh and light, but also still that weird feeling like something’s missing when I put my hands in it. I shared the new look on Stories if you want a peek. 😉 I’ll do an updated hair tutorial soon so I can show you how I style this shorter length.View Post
Good morning! I finally got some good sleep and I feel like a new woman! Yassss! I’m also fully caffeinated and all amped up for today’s new Amazon post! I over ordered and so many cute things are in this round!
I think the Amazon posts keep getting better and better! Maybe I’m getting better at ordering?? I actually had so much in this order that I’ll be splitting it into two posts. Round #2 will be coming soon! In the meantime, you can catch up on my last Amazon post here and see them all here.View Post
Good morning friends! I hope you had an awesome weekend! Ours was wet and dreary, but the game still went on. Jordan had fun! She’s wearing her big brother’s old uniform (including the cleats) and I thought she looked so cute! She can’t wait til it’s her turn to play!

Hello friends! Welcome back to a new week and thanks for starting yours here with me! I hope you had a great weekend. Ours was full of baseball on Saturday with the opening ceremonies, carnival day and then afternoon game. It was a long day and Jordan played so hard she pooped out at 6pm!
HESPERA TRUNK SHOW
Sunday we went to Ali-Shaun’s house for the Hespera Trunk Show. The owner and designer, Eric, is an absolute sweetheart and he makes stunning stone jewelry that was been seen on Miley Cyrus, Superwoman and Game of Thrones.View Post
Happy Friday friends! Today after school officially starts our Spring Break! Woo hoo! I’m sooo looking forward to having James home all week with us! We miss him when he’s at school! Now if only our weather will cooperate and warm up so we can go swimming like we had planned! Is your Spring Break early too or do you have a few weeks to go?
Did you hear that Gibson launched a new line in celebration of International Women’s Day?! #yougogirl Get a look at all the new Spring styles/prints/colors when the line launches early this morning!View Post
Good morning! Today’s post is going up a little late since I took the morning to GSD! I felt like we were so busy this weekend that I didn’t get to relax much or get much done, so I’m glad I could use Monday morning for that.
On Sunday, we celebrated Jordan’s 3rd birthday! I swear, I feel like she was just born and we skipped right past the baby stage and onto threenager in the blink of an eye! Her first birthday party was a garden party at our house, and we had her third birthday at a bouncy place with a Daniel Tiger theme.View Post
Good morning friends! I hope you had a fantastic Valentine’s Day, filled with lots of sweet treats.
If you missed it this week, I shared Jordan’s new big girl bed, what I ate last week, just (the best) sales, and a fun one yesterday, February Loves | beauty edition! That was my favorite post of the week, and I hope you enjoyed it too.

Happy Monday friends! Did you have a good weekend? We had James’ first basketball game of the season and it’s my favorite sport to watch him play! I love how all those kids hustle and how quickly it moves. And Jordan has been on the go with her training wheels bike. I can’t believe how quickly she picked it up! And she got a big girl bed! Did you see on Stories? I’ll have to do a full update here soon.

Good morning friends! I’ve got a fun post for you today sponsored by Amazon Fashion!
Wasn’t that long weekend good?! We used the time to do a big house cleaning, grocery run, and some more decorating! I mentioned it before, but I’m keeping things extra simple this year with the goal to do less with more meaning.
I created a little Christmas notebook and omitted the things that would only stress me out and included more giving and volunteer opportunities. I really think this will be my favorite Christmas yet. I’d love to hear how you keep your holidays on the simple side,View Post
