Happy Monday friends!  I hope your day is off to a great start! Today is James’ first day of camp, so we’re back to some semblance of routine.  Call me boring, but I prefer that! Without my morning routine, I’m all out of whack!

The camp is from 8:30 to 3:30 for three weeks, kind of a bummer for doing things during the day, but I know these boys will get so much out of this enrichment program. And we’re planning something special for when camp ends.

10 Mix & Match Summer Outfits (Gibson x Hi Sugarplum Collection)

We’re well into our first week of summer and I’d say it’s agreeing with us!  Yesterday, James and I spent some fun “just us” time and I’m so grateful for it! He’s always been a joy and delight and still is to this day. ♥

I’m thrilled to share my blog bestie’s fabulous Summer of Color collection with Gibson that just launched this morning!  The entire collection is playful and fun and the styles are easy breezy- perfect for hot, summer days!  The fabrics, colors, and patterns are all meant for no-brainer mixing and matching so you have lots of outfit options.

Welcome to the first MONDAY of our summer break!  So far it’s business as usual, except the kids are staying up later and sleeping in beyond the time I usually start ruffling their feathers to get ready for school.  That is nice for all of us!

I still have my Mom helping me during the day and it’s extra sweet that she gets to have some time with James now too.  I’m also looking forward to a mommy and son date this week.

Good Monday morning to you friends! Did you have a good weekend?  I celebrated one of my oldest and dearest friends’ birthdays on Friday, and then Saturday we celebrated the end of baseball season.  It was a loooong season with no wins, even though our boys played their hearts out.  ♥ Those are hard times for third graders, but I know they are learning lessons and it was always so sweet to see how they supported each other throughout the season.

Sunday, I did a surprise post –

4 Spring & Summer Outfits for Any Occasion

4 Spring & Summer Outfits for Any Occasion

Hi friends!  How was your Monday?  James was off school, so it was an extra long weekend that ended with an evening baseball game. He got his first hit of the season (#kidpitchisrough), so that’s worth celebrating! Our weather has been so awesome lately that we’re all enjoying being outside. I hope it lasts a while before we’re drowning in humidity!

Last night after I put Jordan to bed (yes, still in my bed;), he and I were sitting on the couch talking.  He was telling me about Caine’s Arcade – a little boy who built a whole arcade out of cardboard boxes.

Good morning friends!  I hope you had a wonderful Easter weekend with the people you love!  I absolutely got the biggest kick out of Jordan realizing the Easter bunny had come and her running to James’ room to wake him up and tell him.  It was the sweetest!

I’m also thankful that James appreciated his new color Bible as much as I thought he would.  He opened it right up and started reading during breakfast that morning.

Hello friends! Welcome back! What a full week it’s been with makeup tips from a pro, wedding season dresses, sales, and now we’ve made it to the weekend.  It’s a long one here with no school Friday and Monday, so I’ll be taking a little time to decompress and (hopefully), catch up on my sleep! I hope you enjoy a wonderful long Easter weekend with your loved ones. ♥ 

It’s the last weekend to shop the Nordstrom Spring Sale,

Hi friends! How’s your week starting off?  It’s been a couple of hard nights with Jordan over here.  Just when I thought the middle of the night interruptions were over! Now she wants me to sleep with her, so I usually cuddle her to sleep, then get up and go.  But, then she’ll wake up and call for me to come back.  I would really prefer us to sleep in our own beds because I feel like we’ll get better sleep that way.

But,

Hello friends! Today, we’re throwin’ it back to a reader favorite – Work Weekend Wow!

The concept of Work Weekend Wow is that I show you multiple ways to wear an item for different occasions; specifically, work, weekend and a night out (wow).  I know we all like to get the most out of our clothes by mixing and matching with other things in our closet, and also get the most bang for our buck.  So, as the title suggests,

Good morning from San Antonio friends!  We’ve spent the last two days here and we have one more day of adventures before we head home.  Today is supposed to be cold (by Texas standards – 40/60 degrees), so we’ll be skipping the pool and finding something else fun to do.  Maybe Fiesta Texas if we dare! #crowds

We’ve had such a good time already and I’ve even gotten to meet a few of you!  If we see you today, please say hi!  I love getting to hug you in person!

Happy Friday friends! It’s been a week of celebrations over here! Monday was Jordan’s birthday and Wednesday was mine! Thank you so very much for all the birthday love!  Each thoughtful message to me and Jordan was received with gratitude and joy!  You made it a great week!

We were planning to go out to dinner Wednesday night, but we all felt a little under the weather, so we’re postponing until Sunday.  Last Saturday, I got to get together with my best group of mom friends and they treated me to a dinner out at Ousie’s Table.

I don’t know about you, but our weather has been legit crazy!  We had a wild few really cold days in Houston, then it hit 75!  My wardrobe has been a mix of sweaters and coats, and then suddenly shorts!  But don’t get me wrong, I’m definitely not mad about bringing back out the jean shorts! And the white jeans!  That’s what Spring is all about.  A quick trip into my favorite craft store the other day for Jordan’s birthday gave me the Easter feels for sure.

Thank you so very much for your sweet DMs and emails about our Get Fit Done Guide!  We worked on it for months and then around the clock on Sunday as we got ready to launch it. I was so exhausted yesterday!  Having never done anything like this before, I had no idea how much work and tiny details go into producing an eBook!  Ours is no slim cliff notes book, it’s 130 pages of comprehensive fitness, meal and lifestyle plans and printables!

The GFD Guide is an instant digital download, so get yours now because we’ll start our next fitness challenge soon following the Guide!

Yay for Friday!!  Did you have a good week?  I’m still on a high from photographing our fitness eBook yesterday!  And also quite sore because I did every exercise in the book – that’s four weeks of exercises in about 3 hours!  Having everything come together is so surreal and I’m more passionate than ever about this project that I’m certain will help you look and feel your very best!

I’ve known in my core that I’ve wanted to create something of real value for awhile now,

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!
