Fall & Winter

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!

What Ali-Shaun & I Bought at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale

I’m so happy it’s Friday!  Brian and I are going to his company property out in the country with clients and coworkers.  We’ll wake up at the crack of dawn tomorrow morning to go offshore fishing.

It’s what he loves to do and I’ve enjoyed it too.  But mostly, I just love being out on the boat and hanging out with everyone.

Today is a fun day because everyone, including YOU! can shop the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! Yay for that!

Yesterday I shared Part 1 of what I bought at the Nordstrom sale and today,

Hi friend!  I hope you had a great 4th of July weekend.  We kept things pretty low key and did bake that rainbow cake I was telling you about.  We all conked out early and I’m so glad for the extra rest!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – What to Add to Your Wishlist

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale – What to Add to Your Wishlist

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!

Winter Styles Under $50

Winter Styles Under $50

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.

Sweater Dresses & Booties

Hi friend!  It’s almost Friday and I’m really looking forward to the weekend!  I still need a break from last week and weekend! 😉

In good news, we had a cool front roll into Houston which took our 90 degree/90% humidity days to the mid seventies!  What a blessing and it feels so good to be outside!  In a few weeks Daylight Savings will end and then it will really start feeling like Fall!

With this change in weather, I’m excited to share several darling sweater dresses and also boots and booties!  For the sweater dresses,

Hi friend!  I hope your week is going amazing!  We just sent out the Save the Date for our Annual Favorite Things party, and I’m so giddy for that one!  It’s always a blast to get together with the girls and laugh, talk and see what everyone’s favorite things were that year.  We’re capping it at $30 this year and I’ll be sure to share all of the goodies with you!

That party is one we wear pajamas to, but if you have any other holiday events or parties, you’ll be so excited for today’s post!

20 New Items for Your Fall Wardrobe

20 New Items for Your Fall Wardrobe

Hi friend!  We’re back in the swing of things!  My weekend wore me out and I was so pooped yesterday!  It took me all day to recover- but it was well worth it!

I’m happy to be partnering with Nordstrom today to share 20 new items for your Fall wardrobe.  Nordstrom is always one of my favorite places to shop online because of their styles, easy to navigate website and big, clear photos of the items.  I also appreciate their top notch customer service and convenient, buy online, pick up in store option.

I found 20 things that would make great additions to your Fall wardrobe- everything from jeans to tops to boots and sneakers and a soft pajama/lounge set!

New Fall Styles at LOFT

New Fall Styles at LOFT

How’s your week going friend? I spend most of yesterday trying to get my life back in order after being out of town and it always takes a minute to catch back up.

Also, I realized late in the day that it was Jordan’s first soccer practice yesterday!  It’s her first time playing an organized sport and she’s so excited!  Those kiddos are so cute, I could barely stand it!

I was browsing Loft online and it’s seriously getting me excited for changing leaf colors, Fall lattes, and sweaters! I found some Fall pieces that are gorgeous for this time of year.

Help Me Pack for NYC

Help Me Pack for NYC

Hi friend!  We’ve got rain, rain, rain here in Houston and so much that school dismissed early yesterday and is closed today.  We don’t have good drainage, so flooding is always an issue when we get too much rain too quickly.  I’m hoping everyone stays safe.

I’m heading to NYC on Thursday to meet Brian and, in preparation for packing, I tried on some outfits that I may want to bring with.  On the agenda is two client/friend dinners, Brian’s birthday dinner, and walking around the city just sightseeing and popping into different places.

It’s supposed to be between 70-80 degrees with a 30-50% chance of rain.

A Few New Things & Labor Day Sales

Hi friend! I hope you are having a wonderful long weekend!

Brian and I had a great time at the camp in Falfurrias, Texas and getting out in the country for a few days did us good!  Things seem to slow down when you get away from the city and it’s a welcome change of pace.

We hung out with friends, ate delicious food (that we didn’t have to cook!), fished in Port Mansfield, and napped.  This was my first time bay fishing for trout and I didn’t catch anything, but Brian did!

Hi friends!  I hope your week is off to a great start!  I had so much fun with my girls at Nordstrom yesterday!  Ali-Shaun and I have been shopping the sale together for years and it’s one of the days we always look forward to.  We shopped, ate, talked, laughed and drank mimosas!  It’s just good girlfriend fun and I enjoy it so much!

Hi friends!  Welcome back to my blog and here’s to a fresh, new week!  We had a great, slow weekend, but also got lots of things done around the house.  Brian helped me pick out a new fridge since my old one is acting up and I’ve already had it repaired several times, and it’s over 11 years old.  I’m excited to get a french door style this time!

We also cleaned up my landscaping, went to the pool, walked to the park, went to Trader Joe’s and had a date night at our first date restaurant.  All in all, it was a very good weekend!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale | What’s On My Wishlist & What I’m Reordering

Hi friends!  Happy Saturday!  I hope your weekend is off to a great start! Yesterday was such a fun, busy day!  I had a hankering for lasagna and banana nut bread (weird combo, I know!) so I placed a grocery order and had it delivered yesterday morning.

Jordan finished Week 2 of swimming lessons and is doing great!  She got two ribbons and now she’s Michael Phelps in Grandma’s eyes.  Then, she had a gymnastics playdate with her favorite friend Jonah (apparently they eloped in preK4 last year) while I spent some time working on my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale content.

When gymnastics was over,
