Dressing Room | January

Hi friends!  Yayyy for Friday!  I have have NOTHING on the agenda, which makes me so happy!  This week was rough and I didn’t get the best sleep, so I’m really looking forward to resting!  I cancelled my cable a couple weeks ago, and I’m actually loving not having the tv on in the evenings.  I’ve been relaxing with a book instead.

I still have Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon Prime, so there’s still lots of options if I want to watch something.  Speaking of, Brian and I just finished Queen’s Gambit and it was so good! Even if you don’t know a thing about chess (me!).

Hi friends!  Just a hop, skip and a jump to the weekend now!  I’m ready for it! We have nothing on the agenda, and that’s fine by me!  If the weather cooperates, we’ll walk to the park and get some fresh air, and have a Friday night movie night!

Hi friends!  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that your holiday was full of love and joy.  We had such a nice time at home, then the kids went to their Dad’s house for awhile and I got a chance to catch my breath.  I stayed up so late getting everything ready for Christmas morning, so I was pooped!

In the afternoon, we went to my brother’s house and it was so much fun!  Our family is tiny, but tight, and we love getting to hang out.  Watching the little and big cousins grow up together is the best!

Hi friends!  Our Christmas break starts at noon today!  I’m so giddy and ready for the week off with my kids.  It’s been go, go, go lately and I’m looking forward to slowing down and chilling and savoring the season with them.  We’ll go see Santa on Monday with their cousin, make gingerbread houses, watch movies, bake, go to the park, and I even bought a big puzzle we can work on together.

It was a fun one on the blog this week!  I shared Our Favorite Things Party 2020, my Christmas Dining Room,

Gimme All the Neutral Sweaters (All 50% Off!)

Hi friends!  I had so much fun trying on outfits with Ali-Shaun and Rhonda yesterday!  I hope you love joining us in the dressing room (aka my bedroom!) on Black Friday! I’ll schedule my post to go live on Thanksgiving evening so after you’re done eating and eating and have tucked into the couch in your cozy pants, you can hop online and shop with us!

And I think that post will be even more helpful than usual because Rhonda is 5’9!  She’s the sweetest and a good friend of both mine and Ali-Shaun’s – their boys play in the same select baseball league so they get lots of time together!

Walmart Surprise Sale (Today Only!)

Walmart Surprise Sale (Today Only!)

Hi friends!  I hope y’all are having a lovely weekend.  My kids and I had a wonderful playdate and picnic at the park with the cousins yesterday and it was so good to get outside.  We homeschooled last week, so there was lots of computer time and we definitely needed a break! The sunshine and fresh air did us good!

I’m popping in on a Sunday because I have a surprise Walmart sale to share with you!  This month, Walmart is launching a 3-part sale event that lets you access Black Friday deals earlier than ever before!

Let’s Talk Hair | My Cut, Color & Style

Hi friends!  I’m excited for today’s post because I’m hoping it will answer a lot of your hair questions all in one spot!  I know lots of us have a love/hate relationship with our hair, myself included.

Some days it looks great, many days it’s a hot mess.  As I’ve gotten older, I’ve learned a thing or two about how to care for my hair, how to style it, and how to go longer in between washes so I don’t have to take so much time getting ready.  I’m happy to share all my tips and tricks with you!

Affordable dresses for every occasion

Affordable dresses for every occasion

Hi friends!  How was your Monday?  Mine was a whirlwind, but they always tend to feel like that!  I’m glad I started with a quick 30-minute workout though.  It definitely helped me “breathe and reboot” if you know what I mean. 😉

I don’t know about you, but after so.many.months in my cozies, I’m looking forward to getting dressed up for a change!

It makes me feel good to get dolled up and remember I’m a woman underneath the daily grind of work, chores and parenting.  It’s a lot, right?!

Today, I have several amazing dresses for you,

Good morning friends!  I had a great night last night celebrating Marianna’s birthday.

Our friend Andrea hosted a small spa night birthday party for at her house and it was LOVELY!  All the little touches were so perfect from comfy robes and slippers to hand and feet masks and eye patches.  We ate the delicious pasta, drank wine, laughed and cried when Marianna took time out to tell each of us what she cherished about our friendship. ♥

I left there with such a full heart, feeling so very grateful for my girls!  We haven’t gotten together in a long time,

Hi friends!  The first part of the year seemed to drag on and on, but now the end of the year is upon us quick. I’m so excited for this time of year!  I love everything that the change of seasons into Fall and Winter brings- a chance to slow down, eat hearty/home cooked meals, baked goodies, all the decor,  festive activities and traditions that go along with it.

I’ve already started sourcing holiday decor for our Thanksgiving table and I’m planning when I’ll begin putting up holiday decor.  I’ve even got holiday pajamas for the whole family on the brain!

Hi friends!  YAY for Friday!! Not that I have any big plans, I’m just really looking forward to the weekend!

Neither of my kids are playing sports this season, so our weekends are wide open, which is kinda nice for a change.  This happens to be one weekend with nothing on the agenda, and I love those!  What’s on the agenda for you?

YOUR FAVES THIS WEEK

I love seeing what y’all love and here are your faves this week!

By far, the High Waisted Barely Bootcut Pants were your top fave this week.

Hi friends!  Just a hop, skip and a jump to the weekend now!  That’s how Thursdays always feel- they’re my busiest day of the week, trying to get all the things done for Friday and prepare for the weekend.  Usually such a whirlwind trying to fit it all in!

Tonight, I’m looking forward to a fun date night at a new Houston restaurant, Bludorn.  It took weeks to get a reservation, so I’m super excited to try it!  If you’re there and see me, I’d love to say hi! And a special hello to Gillian, who I met at Mutiny a few weeks ago!

Hi friends!  Happy Friday!  I’m so happy to make it to the weekend!  Things went from busy to worse this week with a broken hot water heater and washing machine that bit the dust.  And, we have a leaky pipe.  Oh, the joys of homeownership!  But, nothing that can’t be fixed and we’re all healthy and happy at home, so that’s great!

Today, I have a dressing room post featuring all Fall styles from Walmart!  I’ll admit, I honestly didn’t realize how much Walmart had upped their fashion game until they reached out to me and said they’d like to collaborate on this post!

DRESSING ROOM | Work to Weekend

Hi friends!!  It sure is shaping up to be a busy week over here!  There’s no school Friday or Monday, so it’s also a short week.  I’ve packed in several workouts, phone conferences, an orthodontist appointment and basketball practice all into three days!  No wonder I’ve been going to sleep at the same time as Jordan every night!

Tonight is a zoom parent/teacher conference and then a couples’ date night!  I’m so looking forward to it!
