Here’s how to wear a pink blazer for three different occasions; work, weekend and a night out (wow!).

Hello friends! How’s your week going?  It’s a busy one over here with a visit yesterday from the cutest mini blogger!  I donated my time via auction for a girls’ school and the 13-year old winner spent the day with us yesterday.  I couldn’t believe how mature 13 is these days!  It happens so fast!

Today we’re taking fashion, specifically, a sassy pair of red ankle pants! Have you ever wondered how to style red pants?

One Perfect Summer Minidress & Summer Hat

Hello friends!  We’re almost to the weekend!  Woo hoo!  I thought summer would feel like we’re slowing down, but it hasn’t been that way around here yet!  We’ve been catching up on little projects and things like getting dental visits out of the way!  I asked James if he wanted to go to the pool yesterday afternoon and he said no!  Huh??!!  When I was a kid, I lived at the pool all summer!  I never thought I might have to bribe a kid to go swimming!

My Hubby’s Annual Father’s Day Gift …

My Hubby’s Annual Father’s Day Gift Guide

Well, it’s been a hot minute since he’s made an appearance around here, so it’s time to bring back my cutie-pie hubby to help us ladies with our Father’s Day gift ideas. I mean, try as I might, I’m much better at buying for my girlfriends, mom, or female relatives!

My hubby is definitely a guy’s guy and he likes all the things I know nothing about- like tools, cars, and sports.  And if you ask him what he wants for any holiday, he’s sure to say he doesn’t want/need anything, so shopping for him isn’t easy!

When WalMart asked to collaborate on a Father’s Day gift guide,

Did y’all have a great, long weekend?  We sure did!  We got our much-needed fill of sun and sand and pool time (my fave!) and it’s always nice to get away even for a few days.  I’ll do a full recap soon, but in the meantime, here are a few sneak peeks!  If only the weekend could’ve lasted all week!

The grounds at Lost Pines are gorgeous and very well maintained. I arrived in this adorable shorts romper and you won’t believe the price!

REVIEW : Best Jean Shorts for Summer

REVIEW : Best Jean Shorts for Summer

Hi friends!  I’m super pumped about today’s blog post because it’s all about JEAN SHORTS!  You might be wondering why the topic of jean shorts gets me so excited- well, it’s because jean shorts are what I actually wear most often in my everyday life. I’m a work from home mom and Houston is hot and humid from now until November, so jean shorts are the easiest thing to throw on!

Even on days when I pull myself together and wear something cute to step out of the house in, lots of times when I return, I throw on my favorite jean shorts.

Work . Weekend . Wow | Pink Top & L’Occitane Giveaway!

Happy Friday!!  I can’t send you into the weekend without wishing you a wonderful Mother’s Day!  I’m blessed to have the best mom around and am looking forward to spoiling her for who she is and everything she does for us!  It’s been a few rough years for her and our family since losing my Dad, but being able to have her here with Jordan has been the biggest blessing all the way around.  I really think it’s helped heal her heart and we love getting to spend so much time with her. ♥

For our Mother’s Day,

Thank you so much for giving Shannon such a warm welcome yesterday!  She’s definitely feeling the love and I knew y’all would like getting to know her!  We popped in on Stories yesterday, so check that out for a mini Q&A!

Also, thank you for letting me know that you haven’t been getting my blog emails and bloglovin’ posts since April 30.  I’m so sorry! #love/hatetechnology! There’s a tech issue that we’re working hard to get fixed ASAP, but #itscomplicated.  This is exactly one of those things where I’m like,

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Are y’all having a good week?! Mine’s been busy and productive!  I made yesterday a GSD (Get Sh*t Done) Day and I love those!  Nothing like knocking out your To Do list and getting things accomplished to make you feel great!  Even those nagging things like vacuuming/cleaning out the bathroom drawers and getting all the hair out of your brushes (the chore I hate most! #gag!!!)  Don’t you agree??

MOTHER’S DAY GIFT IDEAS

But, today we’re looking ahead to fun things like Mother’s Day!  It’s in less than two weeks!! I’m all for celebrating my wonderful Mom who deserves so much more than words or gifts could ever express!

Well, just as we’re approaching the end of the week, I’m finally starting to feel like I’ve got my life together!  It takes some time after traveling, right?!  I did a poll on Stories asking if y’all felt the same way and I was so happy to hear that it’s not just me! I always feel so bad for taking forever to get back on track!

That grocery store online order & pickup + crockpot combo yesterday was a lifesaver!  Have you ever tried that? And now James has parent/teacher conferences so that means school ends at noon today and tomorrow!

Work . Weekend . Wow | How to Style A White Blazer with Shorts & Jeans

Hi friends!! Every day I’m feeling better and better which reminds me to never take our health for granted! We tend to do that sometimes, right?!  When everything is going great, we don’t think about it. But when we feel bad, it’s like the world is falling apart!  I feel like I’m finally accepting that I’m one of those people that just needs extra cushion when I travel.  Aside from getting sick, it always stresses me out all the planning and preparing for the trip and then the extra work and catching up when you get home.  I admire people who can get up and go so much more easily than I can!

Hi friends and happy Monday!  I hope you had a fabulous weekend!  I’m recovering from a terrible stomach bug, and I’m praying today is much better than yesterday!  And that no one else in my fam gets it!  #fingerscrossed

Today is a new one for me, I’m used to scouring the stores and sales and putting together outfit options for you, but this time, Trunk Club, which is a Nordstrom Company, styled me for a change!  Someone must be wise to how much I shop there and I got an offer to try the Trunk Club and review it on my blog.

Affordable New Spring Finds!

Affordable New Spring Finds!

Today it’s all about fun looks for Spring, think gingham and vibrant stripes, from a place you might have overlooked! I tend to fall into the camp of ordering things from the same few places because it’s easy and I’m familiar with those sites and their customer service, however, I’ve gotten requests to add new retailers into the mix, so today’s post is for YOU!

Today is all about affordable (and stylish!) head to toe looks from JCPenney! If it’s been a while since you’ve shopped there, I urge you to take a second look!

We had such a nice bonus day off school yesterday and spent the day running around town, eating lunch and doing a little shopping with the kiddos and my mom! Our weather has been glorious lately, so it was nice to enjoy the sunshine outside and feel like we were playing hooky on Monday!  Look how happy Jordan was to find this tent! It’s got my brain swirling with ideas for her big girl room! But first, we gotta finish our master bedroom– and James!

Hello and welcome back friends! I hope you had a glorious Easter weekend!  Ours was so nice! The kids woke up to Easter baskets on Sunday morning and eggs hidden by the Easter bunny!

In their Easter baskets were a book for each of them (Llama Llama books are popular for little kids and James is all about geography lately), some toys, a new swimsuit, and a bit of candy.  What do you put in your kids’ baskets?

Anyone with young kids knows it can be a challenge to get everyone ready and out the door at a certain time,
