Hi friend!  Did you get a chance to look at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale preview?  I went over every inch of the women’s departments, beauty, and home decor yesterday.

I want to make sure to see everything so that I can help you shop with intention. Ali-Shaun and I have wish lists started and I’ll share those with you tomorrow! I saw lots of old faithful favorites and a few new things to get excited about.  A couple of categories weren’t too thrilling – I’ll be curious to see what my store has when Ali-Shaun and I shop next week!

Best Sales + Summer Sandals & Wedges

Best Sales + Summer Sandals & Wedges

Hi friend!  I’m back in the carpool groove this week with pickup/drop off duties for camp.  It’s an hour round trip, so I’m making sure to get up and at ’em early this week.  That feels pretty good!

And, the kids are LOVING the basketball goal, or hoop, or whatever you call it! 😉 I’m considering spray painting the base green so that it blends into the grass better.  Is that crazy?!

BEST SALES

Every Wednesday, I scour the internet to bring you great deals on things you might love, want, or need.

4th of July Style

4th of July Style

Hi friend! Welcome to a brand new week!  Did you have a great weekend?  Ours was full of sunshine.  We went to a water park Saturday morning, it was really fun to be outside, but dang! it’s so hot here!  Where you are too?

Today, we’re looking forward to 4th of July where we get to celebrate our great country.  I love this holiday in the middle of the Summer when relaxation has fully kicked in.  Kids are staying up late and sleeping in and everyone is a little more chill.

S’mores are already on repeat here and we use this super cute and functional s’mores skewer set I got last year at Target.

Father’s Day Gift Ideas

Hi friend!  Welcome to a fresh, new week!  I’m feeling particularly good since I went ahead and ran my half marathon on Friday!  I literally cannot believe I ran that distance!  If you read my half marathon goal blog post, you know that the longest I’d ever run in the past was 3 miles- and that was a long time ago!

It really goes to show what we can do when we put our minds toward something.  We can all do hard things!  I’m still processing what it means to me and plan to do a full recap with all of my training and what’s next soon.

Hi friend!  I hope you’re doing amazing!  We’re midway through the week and now I’m seeing my weeks in terms of miles run and always looking forward to the longer run on the weekend.

I ran 8 miles on Sunday (the furthest I’ve ever run in my life) and I’m going for 9 miles this Sunday.  I’ve been updating you on Stories if you want to follow along!  There’s a highlight called RUN you can watch.

Hi friend!  How’s your week going?  I feel like I’m starting to get acclimated to our new home, but it’s still all so new and not as familiar as our old house.  It takes some time to get used to where everything is and how it all works.

I’m looking forward to getting some things hung on the walls this weekend and I just ordered gold bath towel rods (double rods for my bath) and hand towel hooks because our new bathrooms are without those.  Also, our old bath mats didn’t fit the space,

Hi friend!  I hope you had a wonderful weekend and are ready to hit the ground running today!  I’m heading home from a beautiful weekend in Mexico and I’m feeling very refreshed.

A few days away with my guy is just what the doctor ordered.  We did a whole lot of lounging, sunning, and eating and it was glorious.  I’ll be going through my Cozumel camera roll and bringing you a trip recap soon!

Now it’s back to reality and laundry and school and sports!

Spring Break Style

Hi friend!  Thank you so much for sharing in the excitement over our new home!  I’m still in ‘pinch me’ mode, but it’s about to get very real because we move in tomorrow!

Today will be last minute packing and I’m sure I’ll hardly sleep tonight anticipating moving day.  Needless to say, I’m so excited and your enthusiasm has been the cherry on top!

Today, we’re switching gears to Spring Break, which is happening or fast approaching for many of us!  Our Spring Break is next week and Brian and I are heading to Cozumel for a few days.

Hi friend!  Welcome to a fresh, new week!  And Happy Valentine’s Day!  I hope you feel the love and maybe even get a little something special to celebrate how wonderful you are.  I have goodies ready for the kiddos and my mom, and I can’t wait to give Brian his gift tonight!  We’re going to an early Italian dinner that I’ve been looking forward to for weeks!

Did you catch the Superbowl, or at least the commercials or halftime show? What did you think? I’m so bummed about our Bengals, but that’s how it goes sometimes.

Outfits Lately

Outfits Lately

Hi friend!  Can you believe we’re at the  end of August already?  It’s crazy because September to December always seems to go so fast!  But I’m really ready for this time of year.  We could use some cooler temps, that’s for sure.  But, Fall weather is always slow to make its way to Houston.

Today I have a round-up of Outfits Lately that hopefully inspires your own wardrobe.  It’s easy for me to wear loungewear everyday since I work from home, but honestly, I’m so much more productive when I make the effort to put on an outfit!

Hi friends!  I hope you are waking up feeling relaxed and refreshed!  We had an easy night in watching movies and eating popcorn, which was the perfect end to a long week and a great way to start this long weekend!

I have relaxing by the pool, cooking/barbecuing, celebrating both of my brothers’ birthdays, and a couple of easy organization projects on the agenda that I wanted to share with you!

Hi friends! I hope your week is going amazing!  I’m looking forward to a girls’ dinner tonight to celebrate our friend Elizabeth’s birthday.  She is one of the funniest people I know, so it’s always a blast getting to see her.

And we’re having glorious coolish weather, perfect for an evening outdoors!  Thursday is normally date night, but Brian has a client dinner tonight, so it worked out.  I do appreciate that he made the effort to see me for lunch yesterday instead! Sooo sweet!

Best Dressed Wedding Guest & Vacation Style

Are there wedding bells in any of your futures?!  Have a summer wedding or shindig to attend?  If so, this post is for you!  I’ve got beautiful dresses you will feel like a million bucks in!

And for anyone curious, I don’t have any plans to get married anytime soon.  When you’ve been happily dating someone for over a year, people inevitably wonder whether you will be getting hitched.  I’m so happy in my relationship and it’s going great, so that there aren’t any plans to change it.  We’ve both been married before and have kids, so there’s a lot of experience and hearts to consider.

Hi friends!  I hope your week is off to a great start!  I had a productive Monday, which always feels great.  My workout was just what I needed and I’m so thankful that I’ve been getting lots of good sleep lately.  Maybe because I’ve gotten Jordan back into her own bed.

And I’m working on going to sleep earlier, so I wake up feeling rested.  It’s incredible how much your mood and energy improves when you’re giving your body the rest it needs.

How cute is this sunshine yellow midi dress?! I feel like it would be perfect for upcoming Mother’s Day.

Hi friends! How was your weekend?  We’ve been enjoying the most beautiful weather here in Houston.  It’s been sunny and warm, not too hot with a bit of a breeze.  If I didn’t know better, I’d swear we were in California – land of no humidity. #jealous We know the swamplike temps will be here soon, so this kind of weather makes us all want to get outside.

We had a backyard crawfish boil for my nephew’s third birthday on Saturday and I also took the kids to the park both days.  We walked (James biked) for extra exercise.
