SHOP: Leopard Tank | Sunglasses | Necklace

Happy Monday friends! I woke up this morning in very, very desperate need of coffee. Lots of coffee! To find out I had zero coffee. No k-cups. No coffee beans. Nada! That is not the way to start a Monday, let me tell ya. I bee-lined it to Starbucks for a venti and I’m feeling alive finally.

We spent the weekend in Tahoe. It was the 4th weekend in a row we’ve been in Tahoe. As much as I love it at the cabin, I’m jones’n for a stay at home weekend. We got a chill week and I’m excited to kick it a home as much as possible. And catch up on laundry! ha!

Intentions for the Week:

  • Share all the amazing sale finds
  • How to have more fun during the summer weekdays
  • Work in the yard
  • Pull 10 items from my closet to sell
  • Try a new salad recipe
  • Lemon table + lemon granita
  • Date night with Bay to see Lion King
  • Hang out at home
  • Log food in my Weight Watchers app
  • Drink a shit-ton of water

Highlights from the weekend……..

{wish list wendesday}

SHOP: Sweater Tank | Denim ($43) | Clogs (1/2 off) | Necklace

Clearly I’m a day behind this week. Target Tuesday fell on a Wednesday. And now Wish List Wednesday is on a Thursday. Ha! It’s been a real long time since I’ve shared a wish list. I love seeing what peeps have stored away in their online shopping carts. Anyone else?

Here’s what’s at the tippy top of my July wish list. You know, all the things that just hang our in your shopping cart till you get the urge to hit “purchase”

{gucci gang}

Blazer | Bodysuit | Shorts | Sandals | Belt | Sunglasses

My belt is as fake as my tan. Ha! This single mama can’t score the real deal. But, why would I? When the $20 knock off is legit? $20 vs. $500! Today I’m sharing some closet staples that you can mix + match though the seasons. Like this blazer I’ve owned FOR-EV-Errrr. Looks great with jeans + dresses + skirts and shorts! Levi’s shorts that I can’t stop rockin. They are the perfect no-ass-showin’ length. The bodysuit, I know, I have showed it to you 3 times now. With a maxi skirt + overalls + and now I add shorts to the list. It comes in black too and I’m gonna go ahead and need it too. The TB Millers that I swear by. Breaking it all down below……

Happy FRIDAYYYYY!

A BIG HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY to all the Mama’s out there. I hope you get to rest + relax at some point this weekend. I hope you get the day off from wiping butts. Maybe even brunch withOUT the rugrats. Or breakfast in bed? Preferably take-out so your kitchen isn’t f’ed up. A special handmade card from school. Oh and how about one of those macaroni noodle necklaces? Yes, I hope you get one of those too! And maybe a homemade coupon book? Filled with “leave me alone” vouchers. Ha! Whatever you do, have a good one! Cheers!

Weekend plans? You guys, I’m a free woman. Well, kinda. More like my calendar is free AF! Meeting some of my girlfriends for happy hour tonight. A little shopping tomorrow. Followed with a Mother’s Day spa date at Cache Creek Casino. Sunday we’re doing the Capay Garden Tour. Never done it before, but I keep hearing great things. I’m looking forward to a weekend of family + friends + cheers!

Now let’s chat about steps….baby steps. We’ve slowly been making an effort to be less wasteful and reduce our plastic waste. Today I’m sharing some of the simple changes we’ve made in our home. I know that even the small part I play can actually make a difference

{8 wing 7 // hot pink moment}

Top | Denim | Mules | Bag

Be savage, not average. According to the Enneagram test, I’m a 8 wing 7.

Type 8: The Challenger! Self-confident. Decisive. Willful. Confrontational.

  • Basic Fear: of being harmed or controlled by others
  • Basic Desire: to protect themselves (to be in control of their own life + destiny)

Eights are assertive, strong and decisive. Eights may become confrontational and intimidating in a situation where they feel others are more dominant than them, but they can also use their strength to improve others’ lives.

Not sure that’s 100% me, but I did take the test 4 times and got the same damn answer, so????

{easter basket ideas}

I LOVE Easter time. Well, I love all Holidays. We have so many fun Easter traditions, which makes this Holiday so fun. I always fill Bay’s basket with all the things summer time. New swimsuit. Beach towel. Goggles. Cute floatie. I pretty much follow what my parents did when I was a kid. Always a swimsuit and saltwater sandals. Oh and lots of candy. You can’t forget the candy! It’s like a Christmas stocking, but with summer stuff. All the fun little goodies.

I used to be able to post all my goodies here, but now I have a tween that likes to read my blog and look at all my photos. And since I want her to be somewhat surprised, I’m going to save her exact basket for Easter morning. I’m sharing all kinds of ideas. Some are in her basket this year. Some I’ve used in previous years. I even got extra and did a boy basket too!

I try to think of things she’s going to need as summer approaches and Spring break rolls around.

{friday 5}

Friiiii-dayyyyy! I can’t even wipe the smile off my face today. Just happy AF it’s the weekend. Got up early, early this morning and cleaned the house from top to bottom. Even decorated for Spring a little too. I LOVE walking in Friday evening to a clean house. Makes starting the weekend extra sweet! You guys, we have hardly any plans….AGAIN! I’m sleeping in tomorrow, that’s #1 on my list. I’d love to work on the patio, if Mother Nature cooperates. Hope you have a good one!

Coffee Table: World Market | Ansel Adams Yosemite Book: Amazon | White Pitcher: Pottery Barn | Marble Bunny ($2.99): Pier One| Magnolia Home Candle: Anthropologie | Glass Cloche: A Well Stocked Home / Crate&Barrel | White Vase: Pier One | Faux succulent: Serendipity Boutique

{gimme all the white tops}

Tomorrow is the first official day of SPRING! I could cry….I’m that excited. Well, except there is rain in the forecast.

We’ve been all over the place today. Bay had an ortho appointment where they scheduled her braces removal. I cannot believe it’s been 2 years. And they also warned me that she’s going to look 10 years older than she already does. Noooo! She’s so excited and I’m so excited for her.

And I FINALLY got my car back today. I was driving a Dodge Journey for the last week. It’s wayyy newer then the ol Pilote. Has all the bells and whistles. And I was so excited to sit in the drivers seat of my 6 year old Honda.

I was also today years old when I learned that you can sign over a check to someone else. Where have I been? You just endorse it and anyone can deposit it? Doesn’t seem legit to me. I guess you learn something new everyday!

I had something else planned for today. Then I got a notification that my tunic, that I fell head over heels for, is on sale. 30% off! And it’s a newer arrival. So, this basically NEVER happens.

{5 items to buy for spring}

Eyelet Top: J.Crew | Levis: Nordstrom // Shopbop | Mules: Nordstrom Rack | Earrings: J.Crew | Bracelet: J.Crew | Bamboo Tote: Amazon

Yesterday I made a BOLD decision. I gave up booze for lent. Alex and I did the math, it’s 43 days. Whoever said lent is 40 days, is a damn lair! Just saying. And I joined Weight Watchers.

So, I apologize in advance for anything I say or do while I’m sober and starving!

In other news, the sun is shining! And my J.Crew Ruffle Neck Eyelet Top is on SALE! So, there are two things to be grateful for today!

See how I changed that to happy shit? I’m working really hard on that. For every negative thought….you have to cancel it out with 2 positive thoughts. Try it, I kinda think it works?

Now let’s talk clothes…….

J.Crew has a promo going on today. 30% off full price styles (aka new arrivals) with code: SUNNY

Eyelet Top: J.Crew | Levis: Nordstrom // Shopbop | Mules: Nordstrom Rack | Earrings: J.Crew | Bracelet: J.Crew | Bamboo Tote: Amazon

So I thought today would be a perfect day to chat about transitioning to Spring.

5 Items to buy for Spring

  1. A classic white top. My faves are my Eyelet Top (from this post) and this Funnel Neck Eyelet. You can never go wrong with a white top + jeans!
  2. Perfectly distressed jeans. See #1 🙂 Levi’s will forever be my go-to
  3. Fun statement earrings. I bought these Fan Earrings in sundrenched peony and I’m obsessed. Super lightweight and FUN!
  4. Bamboo or straw bag. I picked up my dupe to the Cult Gia bag last year on Amazon for $40 and rocked it all summer. ps…your shit wont fall out of the cracks either!
  5. A great pair of natural colored shoes. I cant stop wearing my $40 Block Heel Mules. They are such a staple in my closet. They come in 4 color options and you just cannot beat that price tag!
