And now the countdown is on to Thanksgiving! We’re hosting a luncheon for our deserving teachers today and I’ll be volunteering in James’ 2nd grade classroom while the teachers take a load off and enjoy some good food. I’m happy to do it and the kids are so good, so I’m sure I’ll survive! I really give huge props to all the teachers out there. They do so much for our kids and I know they don’t always get the credit they deserve. Then, James is off school for a week!!! so I’m thinking we’ll get on with our Christmas decorating and go to the zoo- I don’t think Jordan has ever been!View Post
Even as a work-from-home mom, I make an effort to get myself ready and put on something cute for the day! It not only makes me more productive, it helps me feel better about myself! I’m often mixing and matching things from my closet or wearing jean shorts on repeat during the summer, but every month I do a round-up of what I wore, my Outfits Lately, in an effort to provide you some wardrobe inspiration of your own.
Hi friends! Y’all have no idea how happy I am that we made it to Friday!! That Project OneWay fashion show was looming over my head and it was such a fantastic relief to enter the weekend having it over with and successful!! The event was last night and I was all nerves beforehand, but the audience was amazing and it went so well and ended up being super fun! Of course, I’m exhausted today, but it was worth it! I’ve been trying to push myself out of my comfort zone with these types of speaking events, because I actually do enjoy them once I get going!View Post
Hello from the Big Apple! I’m so excited to be back in the city and have enjoyed every minute so far! The BH&G event was gorgeous and the best part was seeing all the friends I don’t get to see in person unless we get together at events like this. Today, we’re heading out on a food tour and I can’t tell you how much I’ve been looking forward to that- especially the Italian fare! Then, it’s onto a show and dinner before catching an early flight home tomorrow. I will be sure to do a detailed recap of everything soon,View Post
We made it to the end of the week friends! And over here it’s been crazy because we’re preparing for Hurricane Harvey to hit Houston. Schools are now closed Friday and Monday. I really hope everyone stays safe and it ends up being much ado about nothing. But, we all remember Hurricane Ike and losing power for 10 days and that was a nightmare! Fingers crossed and prayers being sent up!
Also, I messed up publishing my Day 2 recap of our New Orleans trip yesterday and accidentally back-published it for last Monday! I’m not sure how that happened,View Post
Woo hoo for Friday! Now that we’re almost at the end of July, I’m suddenly realizing just how little is left of our summer break. James goes back to school in a little over 2 weeks! Nooooooo! I’m so not ready for that, so I’m definitely gonna milk these last couple weeks! When do your kids go back to school?View Post
And here we are back to Friday already! That Tuesday 4th of July made for an interesting week, but I’m not complaining that we are back to the weekend again! And we have nothing on the agenda, which is always nice! Last weekend, I went through and organized all of Jordan’s clothes, cleaned out her closet and added some decorative touches, so I want to share that with you next week! But other than that, maybe we will just hang out at the pool if I can drag James out of the house! He’s such a homebody, he never wants to leave!View Post
Happy weekend friends! I’m ready for it! How about you? If you missed Jimmy’s Father’s Day recommendations, definitely go read it! He’s been loving all the extra attention and, he doesn’t know it yet, but I just ordered him #9 and I’m gonna put a bunch of #10 in it! I can’t wait to see the expression on his face when he opens it!
And if it’s heating up in your part of the world and you need a new swimsuit, I did a big try-on and review for you here, so I hope that is helpful!View Post
Happy Friday loves! What’s on your agenda for the weekend? We have Field Day at school today and then a birthday party and of course . . . Mother’s Day!!! I’m hoping for a nice brunch or lunch out on Sunday and we’ll also be celebrating my own mom. She is seriously the best and it’s so good to get to have her around here more often!View Post
Hey, hey, hey and Happy Friday!! Do you have fun Easter plans? We’ll be getting together with our family on Sunday and it’s always so fun with little ones running around!
Today is Outfits Lately, a big ‘ole round up of what I’ve been wearing lately. If you want more everyday outfit inspiration, I post my daily outfits on Instagram, which is what I’m rounding up for you here today. These aren’t professionally styled photos, just selfies ? sharing my attempts to get out of jean shorts (it happens sometimes!) and get creative with the things in my closet.You can always shop my instagrams without LikeToKnowIt by clicking the picture on my blog right sidebar or the SHOP tab at the top of my blog under INSTAGRAM.View Post
Yay for Friday and our quick trip to Magnolia Market in Waco! I’ve wanted to go check it out for soooo long and since we’re only about 3 hours away, it’s about time we went! We’ll be celebrating “Spring at the Silos”, along with 10,000 of our best friends, I’m sure! I’m a little nervous about how much we’ll get to enjoy with all the crowds and Jordan in tow, but I bet everyone else feels the same way! We’ll all just be happy to be there finally! I’ll be sure to keep you posted on my Stories and share a recap when we get back.View Post
Yay we made it to Friday!! Some weeks just feel like that, right?! And we are in the thick of it with kid sports and activities with our son. He wants to do it all and we have to be the ones to set the limits, but it’s easier said than done. Do any of you experience that too?
I know my husband loves coaching sports and all the awesome community of other parents/kids and the father/son bonding aspect, but it sure makes for a lot when James is also in Karate and rehearsing for the school play.View Post
Has this been a whirlwind week or what?! I nearly had a panic attack realizing how close Christmas is and wanting to make sure we get Christmas gifts for the kids! James only had a few things on his wish list, including an iPhone7 and gaming computer. ? He’s 6! Not gonna happen, but a kid can dream. He also had other things like Nerf gun and the book, United Jokes of America, so it’s a start!
Between the teacher gifts, school parties, white elephant adult party, work party, and baking, wrapping, decorating, I’ve been hustling this week to get things done because we all know,View Post
What a crazy week this was having Halloween on a Monday this year! It sure was fun though with a 6-year old who was super into being JJ Watt and a baby Snow White, who loved her first wagon ride! Then, the next day, James got to be St. James at church for All Saints Day. He took his role very seriously and we couldn’t have been more proud.
And even though we’re looking forward to Thanksgiving now (just did the group text menu planning with the ladies in the fam),View Post
Happy weekend friends! I’m finishing up this post in the Big Apple and even though I lost it leaving Jordan, now I’m so glad I came and excited because we still have one full day to explore the city! Today we’re doing our food tour and seeing Waitress and then a super late dinner. I’ll definitely let you know how everything was in case you’re ever in NYC and want to try either. I’ve been trying to Snap or InstaStory (@honeywerehome) while I’m here so you can share in what we’re doing. It feels like being a universe away from home,View Post
Woo hoo, we’re halfway to the weekend again! So far, this summer has been both fun and also exhausting! I know I just posted about getting Jordan to sleep through the night, so that has given me more sleep lately, but the days still feel so loooong! It’s hard to keep up with these kiddos! This is why they say it’s best to have your kids when you are young!
I took Jordan to her 4 month doctor appointment in this nursing friendly dress and then wore it to dinner later in the week. It’s soft material like a tee-shirt and comes in 3 colors.View Post
Hi friends! Happy Friday!! I think we’re really settling into our summer groove now and I’m excited to share some cheap or FREE things you can do with your kiddos this summer next week. I was nervous about being home alone with two kids (one a baby!) this summer, but my friend Melissa (with three kids and one a little younger than Jordan!) has given me new confidence about how much fun you can have with two! I was talking to her about all the things they’d been doing and I was all, if they can do it, I bet we could too.View Post
Hi guys! I’m so glad you liked my Meal Prep post! Especially with summer around, I find that it’s best to have things on hand to throw meals together quickly and if they help our waistline, even better! I did a snapchat video on it yesterday so you could see how quick it is to cook the chicken and TexMex ground beef. The video isn’t particularly pretty, but I cared more about just sharing the info with you! We are going to do more Blue Apron meals to mix it up, so I’ll share our next one with you when I get it.View Post
Man, is it Friday already?! This time last week, I was heading to Dallas to spend the day with my friends and was worrying if it was too soon to leave Jordan. She’ll be two months old already on Monday! It goes so fast, yet she’s still such a little baby. It might sound bad, but honestly, I felt comfortable heading out for the day, knowing that she was in good hands with my mom while my husband worked and then Grandma planned to stay until I got home. Maybe because she’s my second or maybe because I was really craving some girl time,View Post
