Happy Monday friends!  I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and a great weekend.  Eric is out of town on a golf trip with friends so Leyton and I enjoyed a nice, lazy day (the weather was beautiful) and then headed over to Eric’s parent’s house for Easter dinner.  It was a good time and anything that involves me not having to cook is a win in my book.

Today for Monday Must Haves I have an assortment of things, but all are items I’m super excited to share with you.  So let’s get to it! Continue reading “MONDAY MUST HAVES”

RESOLUTIONS UPDATE

RESOLUTIONS UPDATE

Happy Wednesday friends!  It dawned on me yesterday that we more than a quarter of the way into the new year and I thought what better time to check in on how I’m doing with my New Year’s resolutions and in full transparency share with you all how they are going!  I can tell you I have not kept up with several of them as well as I would have hoped, so I’m hoping that by doing this it will hold me accountable to maybe put forth a better effort over the next quarter.  So let’s get to it!  Oh and because it’s boring to just read a blog post with no pictures, I’ve included some recent pictures I love :).

Monday-Must-Haves-5-947085389-1542509116310Happy Monday friends!  First off let me say thank you for your patience while I got my act together last week!  I love vacations and time away but man does unplugging leave you feeling disconnected when you get back to real life.  With that being said, a week off allowed me to catch up on a bunch of things and it gave me a chance to round up some great must haves for you, so let’s get to it!

A WEEK OFF

IMG_9177.PNG

Hi friends!  I have been meaning to post this all week, but I just wanted to hop on quick to say that I won’t have any posts this week but I’ll return Monday with Monday Must Haves.

We were out of town last week and it was a amazing and relaxing and provided a much needed break but that means I got a little behind in several areas of my life haha, this definitely being one of them.  Some posts were missed, some I never even attempted, but I decided sometimes you have to give yourself some grace and only do what you can do.

So, I’m using the rest of this week and the weekend to get my butt in gear, and get caught up and I’ll be back here with you next week.  Thanks for your patience!  Have a great rest of the week, and I hope you are enjoying the beautiful Spring like weather like we are here.  Windows open season is my favorite ever!

Happy Monday friends!  And happy April Fool’s Day!  No fooling around here today. Just some good finds coming your way in honor of the start of a new week and a new month!  I hope everyone had a great weekend!  Eric and I did a little shopping Saturday for our friend’s wedding this weekend and then on Sunday I got together with some local blogger friends and we worked on a collaboration that I will be sharing more about later this week, so stay tuned for that!  In the meantime, let’s get to the must haves!

WHAT’S ON MY BUCKET LIST

WHAT’S ON MY BUCKET LIST

Happy Friday friends!! Today I’m just bringing you a quick, fun little post all about…..what’s on my bucket list!

I’m a big believer in vision boards and putting things in front of you where you can see them and bucket lists are no different! I love dreaming up a bucket list of all the places I’d love to visit, things I’d like to try and experiences I’d like to have. The majority are based around travel but there are some other random ones sprinkled in there too.

Before I go over my list, let’s reminisce about 2 of my favorite bucket list items I’ve already checked off…. Continue reading “WHAT’S ON MY BUCKET LIST”

Happy Monday friends!  I hope everyone had a great weekend!  I spent much of Saturday getting my hair done (I was two weeks past due and it was looking rough!) and on Sunday we had pretty decent weather so we enjoyed some family time at the park.

I have a little mix of things for must haves today including some things from a J.Crew try on last Friday and a Trader Joe’s haul.  So let’s dive in! Continue reading “MONDAY MUST HAVES”

FRIDAY FINDS AT…..

FRIDAY FINDS AT…..

Copy of Monday Must Haves-3

Happy Friday friends!  So I know I said this Friday Finds segment would only be like once a month, but you guys I was out shopping the other day and found so many cute things for summer that I decided we needed another round.  So this week I am sharing Friday finds at…..J.Crew Factory!

This is easily one of my favorite stores because it obviously has the color palette and style I love from regular J.Crew but at such a better price!

Don’t mind that all of my pictures are in the dressing room, but let’s get to it!

Top // Shorts

Okay, so the majority of what I tried on did not come home with me, but friends these two items did!  I have had this sweater with pineapples on it, sitting in my cart online forever and just couldn’t decide.  But once I put it on in person, I was sold.  It’s so preppy and lightweight, it will be perfect for those chilly summer nights.  And then the scalloped shorts are just so feminine and cute!  They come in a few colors.  I have navy from last year and wear them constantly in the summer so another color was in order!

And while I’m in the scalloped shorts, how cute are these sandals with them?

Don’t mind my pale legs or un-manicured toes but I love me a gingham pattern and these were no exception.  They were really comfortable too.  Ahh now I’m wishing I bought them!  They would be so cute with white denim too but I love them with these shorts.  They aren’t available online for me to link but there are 4 other colors and leopard here, that are also cute.

Speaking of shorts…..their selection right now is so so good!  I almost bought these striped ones too but didn’t, and now I’m kind of wishing I had.

Do you see Leyton’s little foot sticking out?  I can’t even handle the cuteness!  Next up were these blue shorts that were so loose and comfortable.  I would say definitely go true to size or even one lower.

I tend to size up if shorts are zipper and button tops like jeans but when they are just drawstring it’s a whole different ball game.  In those instances I go with my usual size or even down one.  Here’s another similar pair I liked.

I love the little trim detail!  They also come in black.  Oh and this white tee shirt I just grabbed to pair with everything.  It’s basic with the little tie in the front (that you can’t see because I love a good front tuck).  The white tee is buy one get one free currently!

The last pair of shorts I tried on were these cut off boy shorts.  I sized up one in these just because there is nothing worse than a tight jean short, am I right ladies?  They come in 4 colors.

Pineapple Top // Shorts

I love these shorts because they are so versatile.  Here I am in them paired with a button down and then a basic tee.

Gingham Button Up // Heart Tee

Switching gears a little bit, I also liked this blue top.  My only complaint was that I didn’t love that the top didn’t stay opened and looked so closed up, if that makes sense.  I’m kind of holding it open in the first picture but in the second you can see how it really lays.  Also, I decided to front tie it because it had some length to it but you could definitely leave it long or front tuck.  This top is currently buy 1 get 1 free with code shopsale.

Next up is this perfect, vibrant yellow jacket!  I’m definitely wishing I bought this one.  I love a good bright yellow and it’s just so darn cute!  It’s currently 50% off.

Lastly, I have been on the hunt for a white denim jacket but couldn’t find any I liked.  But, as usual J. Crew Factory came through.  I purchased this one and love it!  Also, notice my shopping buddy in the background.

Unfortunately it’s not available online to link, but they should have it in store.  Alright friends, that does it for this version of Friday Finds.  I hope you found some fun new items to add to your summer wardrobe.  Maybe if we wear enough warm weather clothing, those higher temps will actually get here!

Have a great weekend.  See you back here Monday!
