4-Minute Morning & Evening Skincare Routine

4-Minute Morning & Evening Skincare Routine

Hi friends!  Welcome back to my blog!  I really appreciated all of your feedback on yesterday’s home decor post.  I’m excited to see that you enjoy home decor, organization, productivity, fitness and things like that.  Those are my interests too!

Sometimes I feel like you’ve already seen most of my home decor since I haven’t done any major room makeovers in a long time.  But, I can still share how I’m organizing everything, and little changes here and there.  I have ahome tour here if you’re interested.

Hi friends!  Yay for Friday!!  We don’t have anything on the agenda except for Tarah’s baby shower and that will be so fun!  They girls are throwing her a “high tea” themed party and have overlooked no detail, so I know it will be fabulous!

My Amazon Home and Patio Refresh inspired me to do more decluttering on Thursday, so my house if feeling super light and fresh.  I’ll plan to share photos with you soon!

If you missed it, I also shared Just (the BEST) Sales and My New Favorite White Jeans!

My New Favorite White Jeans

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!  Welcome to a brand new week!  Did you do anything fun this weekend?  Mine was very chill.  Friday, I worked out and measured my progress on my fitness challenge.  If you want to follow along, sign up here.  I send out detailed updates every Sunday!

I got to rest and relax most of the day on Saturday, and Sunday we celebrated Brian’s friend’s birthday at Benihana.  I haven’t been there in forever, but two girlfriends told me they love the ginger dressing, so I had to try it- they were right, it’s really good!

Full Evening Beauty Routine

Full Evening Beauty Routine

Just a hop skip and a jump to the weekend now! Every other weekend when I have some extra time to myself I like to do a leisurely evening beauty routine.  

Most days are so busy and my night routine is as quick as possible- just wash, apply a night serum, moisturizer, lash & lip serum, and hit the sack!  But Sunday’s I prefer to be slow and intentional.  It’s wonderfully indulgent to take time to pamper your face and body and nurture yourself. 

In this post, I’m going to share my full evening beauty routine,

6 Summer Outfits

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.

How to Get that Bronzed Glow at Home | Face & Body

Hi friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.  Mine kicked off early on Thursday with a girls’ birthday celebration for Tarah at Backstreet Cafe, then a couples dinner on Friday at A’Bouzy, and Saturday night we ate at Bombay Brasserie.  I’m crazy for their Chicken Tikka Masala, and after eating Indian food in Mexico, was continuing to crave it at home!

I usually meal prep and eat my meals at home, but Houston has some amazing restaurants and it’s fun to get dressed and go out once in awhile!  I will have some new healthy meal prep ideas for you tomorrow,

Hi friends! Happy Friday! Thank you so much for all the sweet comments on our Mexico trip recap!  Writing the post and looking at the photos makes me excited to go back!  We have some couple friends we think would be fun to go with next time. 🙂

I also shared the best sales & my Sephora Sale picks and my top 10 Amazon household items (all on Prime!).  Are mine on your list of faves too??

Tonight I’m looking forward to a date night with @thefancyashley and @thereakmrfancy

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.
