Happy Friday friends! We made it to the end of another week and I thought what better way to slide into the weekend than with a look at one of the hottest trends out there right now, and the many ways you can incorporate it into your wardrobe….snakeskin. Continue reading “HOW TO ROCK THE SNAKESKIN TREND”
Happy Monday friends! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Ours was great and our weather was awesome! You may notice that this is not a Monday Must Haves post and that’s because, I’ll be honest…..I really didn’t have anything new to share as must haves. So instead, I thought I’d bring you a quick post about the top things I do each Sunday to get me off on the right foot come Monday morning. So let’s get to it! Continue reading “10 SUNDAY HABITS FOR A SUCCESSFUL WEEK”
Happy Monday friends! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Our weather was hot but beautiful and we made the most of it with quality family time. Leyton is at such a fun age right now and silly and adorable and he loves to make us laugh, so we are always soaking that up!
Today for must haves I don’t have a ton of items, but just some recent things I am loving. So let’s hop to it! Continue reading “MONDAY MUST HAVES”
Happy Monday friends! Sorry I fell off the face of the Earth last week. I had plans for the Napa recap on Wednesday and then Nordstrom sale opening to the public Friday but you guys, then this happened…..
That’s right! It was Rise weekend!! I left Thursday afternoon and once I got there I was busy with all things Rise and truly just relished in the peace and quiet and mama alone time. So, I gave myself some grace, enjoyed some time off and now I’m back at it! Continue reading “MONDAY MUST HAVES”
Happy Monday friends! I hope everyone had a great weekend. Ours was really nice but I swear the past several days have been a total whirlwind between covering the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and Monat having a flash sale on travel items AND Amazon Prime day starting today! Ahhhh so many sales, so many good deals, but so.much.to.cover!
Before I get to it let me say that without a doubt everything from my Nordstrom sale haul that I shared on Friday is a must have! Many of which are already sold out, but lots are still in stock. If you missed that post you can check that out here. I did a second try on yesterday of items still in stock and I’m bringing you those (because they are all must haves too, except for one), and then once the Nordstrom sale opens to the public I’ll have another post covering the items that are still available. Whew! Okay, let’s get to it! Continue reading “MONDAY MUST HAVES”
Happy Monday friends! And happy July 1st! I can’t believe June has come and gone. Summer is flying by and I’m not okay with it. But, since I can’t really do anything about that I’m going to make the most out of July. Does anyone else love a new week or a new month? It’s a fresh start and a new chance to plan out goals and to do lists and I love it, especially when a new month starts on a Monday.
This week for must haves I have some fun things I’m excited to share including 2 new books, some cute tops, and an absolutely amazing dessert to help you beat this summer heat. So let’s get to it! Continue reading “MONDAY MUST HAVES”
Happy Wednesday friends! I truly cannot believe it is already time for this post! The last Wednesday of every month I link up with Shay and Sheaffer and we answer these questions for What’s Up Wednesday…..
And I seriously feel like we JUST did this! Where is this month going?! Well, while we are pondering that, let’s get to it shall we?
WHAT WE’RE EATING THIS WEEK
Okay you guys, the kitchen is almost finished which means I can cook again. But, if you know me, you know I don’t really like to cook, so really what it means is I’m back to making 2-3 meals a week and the rest is carry out. I tell myself when Leyton gets older I will cook more, so here’s hoping.
And while we are on the topic of food, OMG who has had this ice cream??
I normally try not to buy ice cream because, hello trying to eat healthy here, but I was intrigued by this flavor and holy crap is it good! All of their other flavors looked amazing too! Let’s just say I’m glad I have nothing to wear a bathing suit to this summer.
WHAT I’M REMINISCING ABOUT
Napa!! Eric and I just went for our 10 year wedding anniversary and had THE best time. I could stay there forever in the land of wine and cheese. That was our second time there and it was just as good as the first. My only responsibility for 5 days was to taste wine and give my opinion. Take me back!
WHAT I’M LOVING
These products from Monat!
Don’t mind that one is a sample. I’m waiting for the full size to arrive as I ordered it after trying it and loving it. I know I’ve talked about this Super Moisture Masque before but it bears repeating because you guys, it’s so stinking good! Anyone can use and benefit from this masque but if you have dry or frizzy hair this was made for you! It’s my go to this summer.
And then the Intense Repair Conditioner is a new one I started using and I’m loving that too! Also great it you need regrowth or if you have dry hair or ends. Give me all the moisture and sleekness!
WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO
Really just finishing up this kitchen, our anniversary trip and enjoying summer. The backsplash is going in this week and then there’s a few finishing touches to do and the kitchen will be done. I can’t wait. I’m ready to be back in my kitchen with everything in it’s place and not have people coming and going. I’m also going to try real hard to enjoy this finished project and not want to jump to the next one (like the master bathroom, *cough *cough).
WHAT I’M DREADING
Nothing that I can think of. I’m happy it’s summer and am ready for all the outside and family time.
WHAT I’M WORKING ON
I have a new segment coming your way Friday and other than that I’m working on other ideas for the blog and instagram. Prime Day is coming up in July so for my Amazon lovers, I’m definitely tackling that.
WHAT I’M EXCITED ABOUT
Is it sad that I’m excited about TV shows on right now? I’ll address this further in the “what I’m watching” section but there’s so many right now, I love it! I also have some awesome audio books and podcasts I’m getting ready to listen to as well that I’m excited about.
WHAT I’M WATCHING/READING
Sooo many shows! I probably shouldn’t watch as much TV as I do but at the end of the day I just love some mindless television watching. Here’s what I’m currently obsessed with….don’t judge me 🙂
1. Yes, I got sucked into watching The Hills reboot, but so far it actually isn’t too bad. I’m sure a lot of fake scripted TV is about to happen but this first episode was decent and I like that they revisited where everyone’s been.
2. Southern Charm is always a guilty pleasure because I love the south so much.
3. Who is watching Songland? This show you guys is soooo good! The songwriters are so talented and most times I want all of the songs to become hits.
4. And speaking of talent, AGT gets me every time. There’s something about this show and the talent and people going after their passions and dreams that I just love watching.
5. Next, Big Little Lies is back! If you haven’t watched this show you absolutely need to! I never read the book so I’m not sure how it compares but season 1 and now season 2 are both a total must see.
6. And lastly, ANW will always be my favorite. There’s something about watching super athletic people from my couch eating snacks, that just excites me haha. They make me feel like I could run these courses despite the fact that I can’t even do a proper pushup.
As far as reading goes, you know the same is always true for me…..I have a hundred books I want to read and on the shelf they sit. I always say I need to get into a reading routine. I’m still trying to figure that one out. I need all the tips and discipline when it comes to reading and even listening to audio books. These days if I have time to listen to something it’s usually a podcast, which isn’t all bad but it’s not helping me tackle my reading list.
WHAT I’M LISTENING TO
All. Summer. Long! You guys, this album is everything right now. I’ve always found The Jo Bros songs to be catchy but never really got into them when I was younger (and they were Disney royalty) but these grown up, mature, high falsetto Jonas Brothers…..yes, yes, yes! I loved Sucker as soon as it came out and now I’m equally in love with Roller Coaster and Only Human. The song they record from Songland, Green Light, is also so good!
WHAT I’M WEARING
Give me all the tie-dye right now! This shirt is from Amazon and is under $20 and so stinking comfortable. And the bright colors are just perfect.
I’m also wearing these cute sunglasses sent to me by SOJOS. At first I wasn’t sure if I could pull them off, seeing as how I wore something similar when I was six, but they have been well received by most. They are $11 and totally worth snagging for yourself.
WHAT I’M UP TO THIS WEEKEND
You know I don’t think we have any huge plans. Hopefully the weather will be nice so we can be outdoors. Eric and I did learn in Napa that some of the wine we bought on our last trip actually won’t keep much longer so darn, looks like we may have to break into some of that :).
WHAT I’M LOOKING FORWARD TO NEXT MONTH
Rachel Hollis Rise Conference! I booked this months ago and am getting so excited for sure! I’ve only heard the best things so I can’t wait to experience it for myself.
WHAT ELSE IS NEW
I think that about covers it! It’s been a good month but I can’t believe we are about halfway into summer. Time slow down!
That does it for this month’s What’s Up Wednesday. Thanks for stopping by and I’ll see you back here Friday.
Happy Monday friends! Okay, I failed you bad last week! I had great expectations of getting at least one blog post up while on vacation and even wrote one on the plane but then we got to Napa, and hit full on vacation mode and those plans went out the window. But I’m back, it’s a new week, and I’m ready to go! Continue reading “MONDAY MUST HAVES”
Happy Monday friends! I hope everyone had a wonderful Father’s Day. We had a relaxing day at home and did some major cleaning (super exciting, right?) for my parents who are coming into town. This house has been a dust covered mess since starting the kitchen renovation and we couldn’t take it any longer! So as lame as cleaning on Father’s Day sounds, I’m pretty sure it made Eric’s day to have a clean house and not feel like the bottom of his foot was caked with dust. Continue reading “MONDAY MUST HAVES”
Happy Monday friends! Is that an oxymoron? Happy Monday? I think possibly. Anyways, I hope everyone had a great weekend. Ours was good and not a complete wash out of rain like predicted so we enjoyed lots of park and family time. Continue reading “MONDAY MUST HAVES”
