When the leaves start changing colors and Starbuck’s brings back Pumpkin Spice Lattes, it’s time to bust out the boots, scarves and sweaters! Layered looks are always more interesting and we sing praises if we actually get to wear our faux-leather jackets here in Houston! I’m sharing my favorite outfits for your Fall & Winter wardrobe here!
We have a RAT!!!! Ugggg!!!! Jordan actually saw it on Sunday afternoon and my pest control friend Johnny came out yesterday and confirmed! He gave me sticky glue traps to put out and you better believe I’m totally freaked out about our unwelcome holiday visitor! I told Johnny I’ll calling him 911 if I wake up and see a rat wiggling around on a glue trap!!!
But, I want it gone! And quickly! Kitty has been living with us inside since it’s been cold out,
Hi friend! I hope your week is going well! We only have two and a half days until school is out for Christmas break! I’m so excited and really looking forward to a full week where we can relax and chill and just do whatever we want without any busy agenda and deadlines. Doesn’t that sound so good right about now?!
Today, I have some super cute casual winter outfits to share with you and everything is from Kohl’s! I’ve had great luck finding adorable and affordable outfits for both me and the kids at Kohl’s.
Happy Halloween friend! Welcome to a fresh, new week!
HALF MARATHON RECAP
I have good news for you – I ran my half marathon on Sunday and SURVIVED! It was so good to get out there with over 3,500+ other runners and feel their energy and dedication to a single purpose. It was really hard, and we ran a double loop on Allen Parkway, which has hills so my quads were on fire.
I’m really proud of myself and I pushed hard to run the entire 13.1 miles. I started with a steady pace, and felt really good at mile 5,
Hi friend! Welcome to a fresh, new week! Even though Mondays are necessarily my fave, I do like that ‘fresh start’ feeling and my favorite workout class (1-hour HITT with Colleen) is on Monday and that’s a great way to start the week.
Since the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, I haven’t shopped that much at Nordstrom, but I was on their site recently and a few new tops caught my eye. Everything is perfectly appropriate for Fall right now and a few sweaters or layering pieces can take you on into Winter. I paired them with jeans I got at the NSale this year and even two years ago!
Hi friend! Happy Monday! Welcome to a fresh, new week! We had such a good weekend celebrating my mom’s birthday on Saturday. I love it when we can all get together and hang out, just spending time together. All of the cousins are getting so big!
And the training session for our new puppy, Luke went really well too. Honestly, it was more of a training session for me and the kids. I wanted to learn tools for getting Luke to stop jumping up on Jordan and the dog trainer Russell helped tremendously. The first lesson also taught Luke how to go to his “place”
Hi friend! I hope you’re enjoying a long Labor Day weekend! I have the weekend alone, but not really with Luke and Kitty here. I’m still very much in potty training mode with Luke and know it takes patience and perseverance. I also fit in a couple of runs since last week was pretty much a bust. My half marathon is October 30!
LABOR DAY SALES & DRESSING ROOM POST
Retailers love to celebrate the holiday with major sales. Wherever you’re shopping today, I’m sure there’s a sale to take advantage of!
Hello friend! I hope your week is going well. We’re into week 2 of school and already have one down with a cold. Poor girl isn’t feeling well so she’s home with me. But, isn’t it funny how they suddenly have more energy once they’re home?!
Just the Best Sales
Every Wednesday, I scour the internet to bring you great deals on things you might love, want or need. Here’s what I found this week!
Hi friend! I hope you are doing amazing! Today, I’m sharing what I bought at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale while in the store and tomorrow I’ll share a few more things I ordered when I got home. I’ll also be sharing what Ali-Shaun got!
And good news! Starting Friday EVERYONE can shop the sale and you don’t need a Nordstrom credit card to check out! If you’re waiting until then, you can still add things to your wish list so that you can check out right away on Friday!
Good morning friend! I hope you’re having a great week! I’m knee deep in editing and uploading photos from my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale shopping trip with Ali-Shaun.
Did you catch any of our outtakes on Stories?! Always sooo fun to get to hang with that girl. Her good friend Val came with us and also Brian’s adorable daughter. I’m so thankful for this group of gals!
Today, I’m sharing my top picks for home/gifts, men, kids and beauty!
Hi friend! Happy Friday! I’m so looking forward to the weekend! Brian and I get to meet our friends’ baby boy AND see their new house for the first time and we can’t wait! The mom, Jessica, is my friend that got me hooked on those chocolate chip pecan bars! So delish served warm with a side of vanilla ice cream.
Today, we’re diving into the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale. Over the last two days, I’ve gone cross-eyed looking at every.single.item in the preview, taking copious notes to share with you!
Hi friend! I’m so happy you’re here! It’s a great day because: 1) it’s date night, and 2) we have a cold front that’s bringing our 80s temps into the 60s! Yay for that!
I’m so looking forwarding to wearing a sweater, jeans and boots to dinner tonight. We’re going on a double date with one of my oldest friends, so that will be a great time. I haven’t seen her since May!
Today, I have a few new outfits to share with you, and you’ll also get a sneak peek of the Christmas decor in my bedroom.
A big YAY for Friday friend! Do you have any fun Halloween plans? We’ll be trick or treating of course, but I’m mostly looking forward to catching up on rest!
And, I’ll probably start taking down my Fall decor in preparation for the Christmas holidays! I like to have a little break between my Fall decor and holiday decorating, so I’ll clear everything out, put it away, and start with a fresh, clean slate!
Since I love to share those things with you in time to decorate your own home, I always start my holiday decorating early.
