Birthday Weekend Recap

Hello Friends!  I hope you are coming off a restful weekend and are ready to take on this LAST WEEK OF SCHOOL!!  I am ready to knock out these last five days, but we had a busy and fun birthday weekend and very little rest!  Last week was SO BUSY and this week will be SO BUSY, and I don’t feel like I have posted much on social media, so I thought I’d do a bit of a recap of[Read more]

10 Swimsuits + Coverups

So, swimsuit season is here.  And *confession time,* as much as I love the beach and love the pool, I am not excited about trying on swimsuits this year.  I didn’t get any new suits last year since we went to Disney World instead of the beach, so I already know I need a few new ones this year, and am really dreading it!  But at least there are FAR more one piece and tankini options than ever before, and[Read more]

Happy Birthday, Gracie Girl!

Seven years ago today, we were blessed with our sweet little six-pound Grayson Caroline.  She is a free-spirit, the sweetest little soul, a wild card, a nurturer and lover, a natural caregiver, a doting sister, and happiness embodied in child form.  Over the last seven years, we’ve learned so much from our second born, and I thought I’d just share some of the highlights today.  Happy Birthday, my girl, you have filled our lives with sunshine and shopkins and we have[Read more]

Summer Dresses + Weekly Meal Plan

Hello friends!  I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend!  I was sufficiently spoiled with coffee in bed (perfect for me- I don’t eat first thing in the morning), sweet homemade cards and gifts, a lovely morning in church, a relaxing day (and time for sewing for me!!), and a delicious dinner of some of my favorites made with love by my favorites!  It was such a nice day and I am blessed beyond anything I deserve. And now that[Read more]

May Fashion Obsessions

I posted about my Spring fashion must-haves back in March, but this season is just full of the cutest styles that I can’t get enough!  Here are a few obsessions as of late… I love this cute and roomy short sleeved ruffle dress.  I would throw it on to run to the store or wear on the weekends.  These are the kinds of dresses that I just need a ton of, just for all those in-between days, especially during the[Read more]

To All the Moms on Mother’s Day

Ten years ago this weekend, I had the worst Mother’s Day of my life.  A month prior, I saw those two blue lines on a pregnancy test, and started plotting and planning about how my life was about to change with a new baby and motherhood looming.  Then all hopes and dreams were dashed in a sterile doctor’s office, as I saw the baby but heard no heartbeat.  And two days before Mother’s Day, 2008, I was in the hospital[Read more]

Last Minute Mother’s Day Gift Guide + Weekly Meal Plan

Has Mother’s Day snuck up on you too?  Can you believe it’s less than a week away?!  Well, never fear, I am the queen of the last minute gift!  I am the worst at having the greatest gift-giving intentions, and then, uh-oh, it’s three days before the big day and I haven’t bought a thing.  So if you’ve procrastinated too, I have some great gift ideas that you can order this week and have in time for Mother’s Day on Sunday.[Read more]

What I Wore

Dare I say it… but has spring finally sprung??  This spring has seemed unusually unpredictable, but every year the weather isn’t consistently warm until mid-May.  But at least that means we’re getting close!  And just give me a couple of 85 degree days in a row, and I’ll be whining about how hot it is! #neversatisfied I am so happy to finally be getting out the dresses and sandals, though!  Here’s a look at a few things I’ve been wearing lately…[Read more]

How to not get blisters on your feet.  Perfect for upcoming sandals weather.  Best part, I[Read more]

Friday Randoms

Another whirlwind busy week.  I often comment on how quickly the weeks pass, but this one has seemed to go on forever!  It hasn’t been for lack of being busy, we have just had some looooong days this week.  So, on this lovely Friday, I’m sharing a bunch of randomness from the past week and things on my mind.   THIS WEATHER IS KILLING ME SLOWLY.  75 degrees and sunny on Monday.  High of 47 on Tuesday.  Pollen on all the things. [Read more]
