Hey friends! Only one more day until Friday!!  I find myself looking extra forward to the weekends now that both kids are in school all week.

I’m so happy to report that Jordan is doing better at drop off now and that makes my mama heart feel so much better.  And she comes home singing the new songs she’s learning at school and talking up a storm about her friends.  I think we’re both gonna make it! 🙂

Today, I’m super excited to share a huge sale on the super popular Victoria Emerson bracelets I always wear.

Hi friends! How was your weekend?  Ours felt really long with lots packed in! We kicked off Friday night with Moscow Mules at Marianna’s house, then had two birthday parties and a baseball game.  I feel like I need one more day of weekend, but there is no rest for the weary. 😉

I tend to be up late on Sunday night getting all my ducks in a row for the week, so I let myself sleep til 6am, get the kids ready for school,

Hello friends! Happy Friday!!  Who else is ready for the weekend?!  We have a baseball game and two birthday parties on the agenda, and celebrating my mom’s birthday!  Even though Grandma isn’t here Monday – Thursday anymore since Jordan started preschool, I still talk to her everyday, often more than that!  #gottalovemom

I have to offer a tremendous THANK YOU for the love and support on yesterday’s Lawyer to Blogger – Part 2 post. It’s been cathartic for me to share this journey with you and give you some insight on how we got here.

Happy Labor Day friends!  Are you doing anything fun today?  We’re having family over for a backyard barbeque and I’m pumped!  If there’s one way to get projects and cleaning done around the house, it’s to host a party!

I finally finished up some little backyard projects and even cleaned out the garage- including wiping down all those ride on toys, bikes, and dusty things that live outside!  I’m so sore!  

And last night, James and I had a special movie date.  I don’t get as much one-on-one time with him as I’d like,

Good morning, friends!  I hope your week is off to a great start!  I’m so glad you found yesterday’s post helpful! I strive to bring value to you through my posts, and I always appreciate chatting with you through the comments.

August and September signify back-to-school and Fall style.  In Houston, we struggle through these months because it’s still so hot here, but we’re ready for jeans and sweaters!  One place that really knows jeans and casual style is GAP.

Hi friends and YAY for Friday!  I’m super excited for the weekend!  During the summer, I felt like all the days kind of ran together, but with school in session, there’s a definite school day and weekend differentiation!  I’m savoring these weekends with nothing on the kid agenda because before we know it, it will be sports and birthday parties and not as much down time.

This week was a fun one on the blog and I appreciate so much the comments you leave.

Good morning friends! Well, it didn’t take long – both of my kids woke up yesterday saying they didn’t want to go to school.  Jordan came home without napping and was in total beastmode!  So super grumpy, but we had an early dinner and early to bed, so hopefully today is better!

I’m so glad you liked Friday’s Amazon post and yesterday’s LOFT post– both try-ons are saved to my Story Highlights.  I think it helps to see things live and in action and videos are always more personal.

Good morning Monday!  How was your weekend?!  On Friday, I felt like I had been hit by a truck with how exhausted I was with the back-to-school logistics and emotions.  It was a lot and only half a week!

Jordan might have gotten the ‘first time at school bug’ because she’s been all stuffed up and runny nose this weekend.  It hasn’t dampened her spirits though, she’s still as fun and feisty as ever!

And now it’s week two of school – a full week, so we’ll see how this goes.  Luckily, I spent Sunday evening getting everything prepped and ready,

Good morning friends!  You have no idea how much your kind messages and commiserations over Jordan starting preschool yesterday meant to me.  Jordan started out having a great day, but when we walked into the school, she got scared and started crying.  Which, of course, made me cry!

Luckily, she was allowed to bring a comfort item from home and her Lovey did make her feel better.  We waited in line with her through assembly, then walked her to her classroom where she got to hang up her new backpack, put her new lunchbox in her special cubby,

Hello and Happy Friday!  I’m coming to you today from Chi-town and it’s absolutely glorious here! The weather couldn’t be better and I’m with one of my oldest and dearest friends, Trisa.  We met over 20 years ago #wowza when we went to the University of Houston and sat in the same Persuasion class.  We’ve been thick as thieves ever since!

I’ll be sure to share our trip details when I get back, in the meantime, if you missed it on the blog this week, I shared a Mid-Year Life Reset and absolutely loved your positive response to it;

Good morning friends!  Yesterday was such a rough start for me after eating a whole pint of ice cream, drinking coffee too late, and then not being able to sleep until 3am!  Those days are hard, but I did it to myself!  Thankfully, I got good sleep last night and I’m glad because this afternoon I leave on a girl’s trip to San Antonio to celebrate our friend’s birthday.  Our plans include a winery tour, dinner on the Riverwalk and hopefully some pool time at the hotel.

Hi friends!  Did you have a great weekend?  Ours was probably the hottest weekend of the year so far with temps getting close to 100!  We kept it pretty low key, but did catch an Astros game yesterday.  Thankfully, the air was cranked and it felt nice inside.

Now we’re onto a fresh week and I’m knee deep in my Nordstrom Anniversary Sale prep!  It’s always a beast of a sale with so.many.things and I want to make sure I show y’all the best of the best.  Specifically, the things you’ll really want to spend your money on and things you’ll get lots of use out of all Fall and Winter long.
