Hello friends!  It’s amazing what some good sleep and girlfriend time can do for you!  A bunch of us went to Round Top this weekend for the semi-annual antiques fair and good old fashion fun.  We spend the day laughing and shopping and eating and laughing some more.  That 24-hour getaway helped get my mind clear and ready for the week.

I’m one of those weird people that likes Monday because I think of it as a mini “fresh start” every week.  As long as I get to spend some time reflecting, planning, and getting organized on Sunday,

Good morning Monday!  I hope your week is off to a great start!  Last night, as I started preparing my calendar and agenda for the week ahead, I started to feel already overwhelmed with all.the.things.

September means we’re back knee deep in after school homework and sports are back in session with mid-week practices and weekend games.  As much as I like the routine, I often feel the tension between trying to balance my need for s l o w days with my ambitious and productive nature.  Can anyone relate to that?

This week, I’m trying to be extra disciplined and work smart during my work hours,

Hello friends and happy Monday!  I hope you had a great weekend.  We’ve been soaking up those last days of summer before school starts on Wednesday.  Wednesday!! 

And tonight we get to meet Jordan’s Pre-K3 teacher.  I’m so excited for her to get to see her classroom and sit in her little chair for the first time!   It’s a big step for both of us, but I know she’s gonna thrive and have so much fun getting to play with kids her own age for a change.  The social aspect alone will be wonderful for her.

Good morning friends!  I hope your week is going wonderfully!  We has such a good time on our weekend trip to Galveston and definitely could’ve stayed a few more days.  I’ll do a detailed recap on my blog soon, but in the meantime, I shared quite a bit on Stories and saved it to a Highlight in case you’re interested or plan on going soon.

When we got home, it was all about unpacking and laundry and cleaning house and eating and Jordan’s nap and I finally got in a good jog at the park.  I needed it after eating all.the.food while we were away!

Good morning friends!  We’re onto Day 2 of camp and so far, so good!  I’m lucky to be sharing carpool duties with Ali-Shaun and Jamie and that makes things so much easier.  And of course, I do appreciate a little bit of a routine, it helps our days flow better.

Good morning friends! I hope your week is off to a great start!  I finally got to the doctor, so hopefully today is the last day you’ll hear me mentioning how bad I’ve been feeling the past week!  Isn’t it the worst when you don’t feel well?  It really makes you think twice about taking your health for granted!

Which is also why I’m hoping your 7-Day Reset got off to a great start yesterday!  Y0u’ll be receiving a happy mail email from Cari & I today, so don’t forget to check your inbox!  I’m planning to share my meals with y’all on Stories,

Good morning friends and happy Valentine’s Day! I hope you get spoiled rotten even if you’re not big on the day.  I’m all about treating the kids and don’t mind a little something for myself also! 😉

It’s time for my Monthly Loves and this one is focused solely on my beauty favorites!  It’s basically a ‘Ride or Die’ list of my beauty Must Haves that I swear by and use all the time.  This post isn’t sponsored, it just my very favorites, and many of them are drugstore finds!

Good morning friends!  It’s an exciting day!!  Today, we’re shooting the photos for the fitness eBook that will launch this month!  These are the photos that will correspond to the weekly workouts so that you’ll know exactly how to do each move if you aren’t familiar with the name of the exercise.  It’ll actually be a major workout for me because I’ll be demonstrating everything, but we have a special guest coming for the ‘Partner Workout’.  Any guesses who it is?!  You can follow me (and find out!) on Stories.

Back to the week and just two weeks until Christmas!  Are you ready?! We had a nice, slow weekend and I did get some more shopping done for all of my nieces and nephews and the kids!  Just one more thing to hunt down for Jordan and I’m calling it good!  How’s it coming for you??

For my 12 Days of Christmas Giveaway, we have three more things to give- the necklace I wear most, my fave running shoes, and my beloved Dyson Stick Vacuum! Just follow me on Instagram,

Happy Friday friends!  Did y’all have a good Halloween?  We almost got completely rained out, but we got a 30 minute break in the rain to do some trick-or-treating.  Jordan was Daniel Tiger and James was DJ Marshmallow.  Then we got home just in time to lose power for the night and the next morning due to heavy storms.  My poor friend and photographer Tisha woke up to a big tree down in her backyard! So sad!

It’s been a crazy couple days and I’m sure looking forward to relaxing this weekend! I’ll be back next week with some big news,

Good Monday morning friends!  Did you have a good weekend?  Ours started off great with a relaxing Saturday, the first win of our son’s baseball season (woo hoo!), but Saturday night Jordan woke up sick.  🙁 Let’s  just say it continued through the night with several loads of laundry and three very tired family members.

Luckily, she’s on the mend and we all went to bed early last night!  That’s perfect because I was up and at ’em this morning for my 6am workout class!  I was so swamped last week that I didn’t get many workouts in,

Good morning friend! I hope you had a great weekend. I’m coming to you from the sunny land of LA today and it’s so nice to get a brief respite from the Houston humidity. We actually sat outside for dinner last night without sweating through our clothes.  😉

Before I hop into my August favorites…

I’m thrilled to finally be able to let you in on a fun collaboration that’s been happening behind the scenes. A group of 9 bloggers (myself included) are partnering with GibsonLook on a fabulous holiday fashion collection that will launch later this year.

Did y’all have a great 4th of July?!  We kept it low key and stayed inside all day long because we had major downpours all day!  But with the holiday in the middle of the week, I swear it’s hard to know what day it is lately!  I’m happy it’s Friday today and I’m excited to be getting some length chopped off my hair tomorrow!  How short should I go??

I’m also thrilled to announce the #HWHFitnessChallenge Nordstrom Gift Card Winners!  I’m so proud of every single one of you, over 1,000 people participated in the challenge and I chose 3 winners at random.

We’re already halfway into May, which means it’s time for another Monthly Loves!  I love sourcing goodies and putting these collages together for you!  And, since most of my posts tend to be lengthy, I think these short and sweet posts are nice for a change!

Also, thank you for your patience while we worked out the tech issue that was preventing my blog from going out to subscribers and on blog readers, like Bloglovin.  It should be fixed now, but if you have any issues please let me know. And if you want to subscribe to Honey We’re Home (thank you!!),
