Looks for Less | Summer Vibes, Wedding Guest & Versatile Jumpsuit

Hi friends!  The best thing about a long weekend is a short week!  The kids were off school on Monday, and it’s almost the weekend again!

Today, I’m excited to get a haircut.  I was growing it longer for awhile, but I’m ready to chop off a couple inches again and maybe bring my bangs up a little.  I think it will suit me better for summer and just be easier to take care of and style.  And I’m all about simplicity these days.

Do you prefer long or short hair? I always envy those girls with gorgeous long hair,

Hi friends! Welcome to a fresh new week! I hope you had a wonderful, restful weekend. I sure did! In fact, on Friday, I overslept my 6 AM alarm and didn’t wake up until 8:07! Totally missed my work out with Matt and I think that that’s the first time that’s ever happened! 

I guess sometimes we really do need to catch up on our rest. It does our mind and body good!  

For my birthday, Brian gifted me a spa certificate and I used it on Friday afternoon to get a hydrafacial. 

I think I’ve only gotten three facials in my life,

Hi friends!  I hope your week is off to a great start!  The Monday after Spring Break was a rough one, but we made it!  And I think we’ve finally adjusted to the time change.  I love when it stays lighter later- we were able to go on a family bike ride after dinner yesterday- so nice!

Today, I’m sharing some beauty faves that I use and thought you might be interested in too.  If you try just three things here, I’d recommend the hair & body spray, SPF moisturizer, and the new ‘creamy’

Hi friends!  I blinked and we’re almost at the end of the week!  With Spring Break, this whole week has felt like the weekend, and coming home yesterday on a Wednesday threw me off track!  We ate the best Mexican food in San Antonio, and had double scoops of ice cream (Bluebell coffee and salted caramel in a waffle cone for me!)  Sooo good!

And, to get back on track, I ordered groceries right before we left and already have my fridge stocked with healthy groceries again! That feels like a great start?? to the week!

Packing Essentials for Spring Break

Packing Essentials for Spring Break

When it comes to packing for Spring Break, how hard can it be??  If you’re heading somewhere warm, all you need is a swimsuit, jeans shorts, and flip flops, right?! Well, maybe a little more than that!  We’re doing an impromptu two-day getaway and when I started packing, I realized I have a few essentials I’ll definitely be bringing with me.

I referred to the “Vacay Packing List” I created several years ago for reference, and since it was handy, I’m including it for you here.  It’s an exhaustive list, but helpful so you don’t forget anything!

I’m glad we’re out of the diaper phase,

Hi friends! Happy Friday! And our Spring Break officially starts today!  I didn’t think our weather would be warm enough to go anywhere, but things are looking up and it’s gonna be in the 80s!  Sooo, we’ll be heading to a resort in San Antonio for a couple days next week.  The kids are super excited and I’m thrilled Grandma can come!

Last time I took three kids to a resort for a holiday weekend by myself, I swore I’d never do it again!  The kids were great, but it was so hard to keep an eye on everyone and I ended up so stressed out!

Hi friends!  How was your weekend? Did you watch the Harry and Meghan interview?  I would have, but #nocable.  What did you think??

Yesterday, I laid down on the couch for a 30 minute catnap, and two hours later, I was still horizontal!  I guess I really needed the rest!

On Saturday, we found out our friend Tarah and her hubby are having a GIRL!  At our age, having a new baby in the friend group is so fun for all of us girlfriends.  This is gonna be one little baby that has a lot of aunties spoiling her!

Hi friends!  Happy Friday!  This was our first ‘normal’ week after the storm and it’s crazy to think how much can change in just seven days!  The kids went back to school and I got back to work on the blog.  It was a packed week with a new Amazon post, Top 10 Tuesday Goodies, Best Sales, Looks for Less and now today’s Dressing Room post!

We’ll be celebrating Jordan this weekend with a little family party at the park (fingers crossed it doesn’t rain!).  I feel like five is such a milestone birthday because she definitely isn’t a baby or toddler anymore.

Hi friends!  Welcome to a fresh, new week!  Did you have a good Valentine’s Day?  Brian gave me the most beautiful red roses I’ve ever seen. ♥ They are so big and fully opened and just gorgeous.  He had them delivered and I was so surprised!  Usually when my doorbell rings, it’s cardboard boxes or a bunch of kiddos. 🙂

I gave him a heart-shaped box of chocolate caramels and wrote him a card.  It was our first Valentine’s Day together and so lovely to just be in each other’s lives.  I hope you had a wonderful day and felt the love.

Hi friends! Happy Valentine’s weekend! Do you have any sweet plans?  We’ll be taking it easy, with nothing major on the agenda and that’s fine by me!  As you could probably tell from yesterday’s book post, I’m definitely in a season where I appreciate moving slower.  Of course, I love to GSD, but that’s work mode and there definitely needs to be a slow gear too.

Jordan had been sleeping with me and now it’s time to get her to sleep in her ‘big girl’ room again.  The first night was rough and,

Good morning friends!  It’s the start of a fresh, new week and I’m excited about it!  I started rereading Eat That Frog by Brian Tracy this weekend and it always motivates me to GSD!  If you haven’t read it, I highly recommend it!  It’s a quick, easy read and full of practical advice that you can begin implementing right away to start changing your life for the better!  There’s even a version for students if you have a high schooler or college age kid.

Today, we’re looking forward to Valentine’s Day with 5 cute outfits.

My 2-Ingredient Cocktail for Dry Skin

My 2-Ingredient Cocktail for Dry Skin

Hi friends! I’m popping in with a quick winter skincare saver tip for you today!  Our typical hot and humid Houston weather has turned cold and dry and my skin isn’t used to it.  I’ve noticed that my skin been much drier and flaky, especially at my cheeks and on forehead.  It tends to feel tight in those areas too.  Whenever I need a boost of hydration to my skin, I make a ‘cocktail’ with just two ingredients.

At night, after cleansing my face and patting almost dry, I apply my skincare cocktail.

Hi friends! How was your weekend?  Mine was so good!  I got to take advantage of a rare weekend alone and I absolutely loved it!  I’ve come to really embrace those rare opportunities to be by myself.  I worked out, popped in Hobby Lobby & Michaels, read, and took a nap!

Then, on Saturday night, I undertook a project I’ve been putting off for YEARS!  I condensed 4 old photo albums and a box of random photos into one photo album.  I grabbed all those albums and photos and piled them on the living room floor, put on some mindless Netflix show (love is blind??),

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!  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,
