SHOP: Top (30% off) | Denim (25% off) | Sunglasses ($11) | Necklace

Happy FRIDAY!! Cheers to the weekend! Cheers to you! We fucking made it! Barely…ha!

Weekend plans: Pizza + Wine tonight, because what else would one do on a Friday? Sleep in. Watch Jenny get hitched. Finish decorating our front porch. And probably go to be at 8pm. What’s on your weekend agenda?

For those asking:

Starbucks Cinderella Latte verdict…..

Not absolutely disgusting. Better than a PSL for sure. This secret menu item went viral this week, so obvi I had to try it out.

To order: ask for a PSL (hot, iced or blended) swap out half of the pumpkin spice pumps for white mocha ☕️

Today on the blog I’m sharing 5 things I’m loving from Old Navy. Have you been in there lately? I can’t leave without buying something

Everything is 30% off. NO code needed. I swear online prices are wayyy better than in-store. So, I always place my order for in-store pick up, to get the sale prices. And because, I’m cheap AF and don’t want to pay for shipping that take 15 days. lol.

{white bean caprese salad}

Today was the day. The first day of school! The day some of us (myself) have been secretly praying for…lol! And some dreading. I decided next year we need to have a Woo-Hoo + Boo-Hoo party after drop off. Where we can celebrate or be bummed our kiddos are back in school.

You know, just at a bar preferably. Before everyone gets on with their day.

Bay’s last day first day at Lee Middle School. I was reminded of it, bright and early this morning. Holy shit!

Yes – I let her keep the baby blue acrylic nails. Even though I cringe every time I look at her hands. On one condition – she learns how to spell “remember” Ha!

We always take photos the night before. #momhack. Such a time saver in the morning on the first day! It’s almost like a trial run. What to wear. Does it need ironing. What hairdo. Makeup. All the things. It truly makes the morning of such a breeze.

I, myself, spent about 90% of my day scrolling though all the 1st day photos. I cannot believe how big everyone’s kids are. How grown and mature they all look. Including my girlfriends kids. We’ve had this tradition since pre-school. My girlfriend Sara and I met one year at Raley’s. Mainly because it’s always empty. Each year the group and photo have grown larger + larger. Makes my heart so happy! Thanks for organizing this year Alex! Love to see everyone dressed in their best ready to take on a new school year.

Tank ($15) | Denim | Booties (similar booties) | Choker (set of 5 for $10)

{keepin it real}

THE Best Tank Top ($12.99) | Denim | Sandals (grey dove)

Today, I’m having a day!

Not a good one!!

And I decided that I’m going to keep it really real over here…..

I have a gnarly zit on my chin. And I’m not messing around when I say it’s the size of Africa! There is not enough Tarte Shape Tape in the world to cover this thing. About to name the son of a bitch. Any suggestions? Maybe Bertha? Or Bernard? Something that starts with a B, preferably.

I went to Weight Watchers this morning….and

{back to school}

Tee | Shorts | Vans (BOGO 1/2 off) | No-Show Socks | Backpack

I can hardly believe school starts in TWENTY TWO days! Where did summer go?

As much as I LOVE summer. I have to admit, I’m ready for our regular routine. You know – the one where nobody wants to get out of bed. Then we’re both up fighting over the bathroom. Bumping into each other to brush out teeth. And typically running late. Ha! Don’t you miss that too?

Bailey has opted out of taking zero period this year, so we’ve got some logistics to still work out. The 7:15 am out the door was actually kinda nice last year.

But, what we do have figured out is ALL THE THINGS back to school gear-wise. From backpacks to teen approved lunchboxes. Vans, ONLY vans. Cute tops + accessories that you “NEED”

With the help of my very own 12 year old, we’ve rounded up her top picks for back to school.

{#nsale}

SHOP: Chambray Top (40% off) | White Denim Shorts (40% off)| Sunnies

Today is a great day because:

  1. It’s FRIDAYYYYY!
  2. The BIGGEST and best sale of the year starts today! Nordstrom Anniversary sale. AKA #nsale

I’m sure you’re being inundated with all the things Nordy’s today. But, this is kind of a big deal.

Here’s some info for those of you shopping the sale today…….

Early Access for Cardholders: July 12 – July 18 (online + in store)

Public Access: July 19 – August 4 (online + in store)

Pro Tip: I’ll update this post again with new finds and treasures once the sale goes live for Public Access. Make sure to visit this post again for all the live updates.  You may want to order things right away instead of leaving them in your cart for a long time, because they WILL sell out. Nordstrom has free shipping and returns, plus you can choose the Buy Online and Pick-Up in Store option while adding items to your cart. When you do an in-store pick-up, Nordstrom is offering a $10 Nordstrom Reward PER ORDER! I usually end up having a few orders to be able to shop while they’re in stock.

If you are NOT a cardholder, you can apply today and have immediate access to the sale before it hit the Public next Friday. That’s one whole week. Nordstrom Card Application: Norstrom Card

I’m sharing all my top picks with you today!

Happy shopping everyone!

Dress season is upon us ladies. I’ve got you covered with dress options that wont break the bank. And will get you though wedding + shower + graduation + brunch season.

Remember my Seersucker dress from last week: {list of loves} It’s currently marked down from $90 to $23! Swear! And it’s such an easy to wear dress.

I scoured my favorite online stores for dresses that I would totally rock. Think J.Crew. Madewell. Nordstrom. Old Navy. American Eagle. Target. You name it. Not only dresses that I dig, but dresses that also have a decent price tag.

I broke them down by length. You’ll have to let me know if that’s helpful.

{spring break recap}

dress: bella moda boutique | bag | earrings | sandals

Reentry is no joke. After a week off from work + school for Spring Break, we are back at it today. Not going to lie, I’m strugglin hard. I’m on my 2nd cup of coffee. And I’ve got an iced coffee in my near future. I walked into my office at 7:45 am this morning and instantly felt at home. There is something to be said about routine. Really, really missed mine. Although we had a fucking blast last week.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Get Timothy + Archie Spring Show ready
  • Eat healthy AF using my WW app
  • Drink a shit-ton of water (I don’t think I’ve had any since April 19th)
  • Start making my bed again (also haven’t made it since April 19th)
  • Clear out email inboxes (one had over 900 emails…FML)
  • Make my favorite {thai coconut curry shrimp}
  • Try a DIY cropped sweatshirt
  • Target Tuesday…share all the things Target
  • Come up with a yummy, yet healthy dessert for my sweet tooth

This week on the blog: What I ate (my zero point food diary). Target Tuesday. Things I’m diggin in April.

Highlights from the Week…..

Kicked off Good Friday with Martini Mama Liz’s famous martinis. Needless to say, we got tips!

Saturday we celebrated Timothy Easter. GG and almost all of her great-grand kids.

My Easter salad with the edible flowers. Although, I don’t recommend eating them. GG said they didn’t taste all the great…lol. This is actually my {asparagus salad}

Someone was hoping BIG time they’d find the Golden Egg….and she did!!
