Thoughts on Thursday..........

It's been a while since I've done a post like this, and I feel my brain is about to explode! So really, welcome to my Thursday brain dump :)

* I am leaving on a jet plane today!! Ha, not really, just a regular plane :) I am super, super excited though! I am headed to Dallas for a blog conference and I am pretty pumped to finally see some new and old faces! Follow me on Instagram if you want some sneak peeks!

* I am feeling a little overwhelmed with packing and leaving my family. I know they will be fine though, I am leaving them in the best hands possible! Todd you rock, love you man! 

Tory Burch just announced their friends and family sale!!! So many amazing things for 25% off!
Here are a few of my favorites!
Use code FRIENDLY to save!

Mine and Taylor's new Lilly purchases from Saks came in yesterday! I am completely smitten!! My top is even more gorgeous in person! You can still save 25% with the code FRNFAM!

  I am not usually a big on color blocking (is that how you say that?), but I am kinda loving these together!

* I am pretty much in love with this little white dress! Plus the fact that it is $48.00 makes me love it just a little more! It comes in a gorgeous yellow and black too!

* I got my hair highlighted this week, and decided to embrace some curls. I wish my curls looked like this when I tried to style it! Any suggestions on how to get this look on my own?

Last, do yourself a favor and go look at all the goodness Baby Gap and kids Gap has going on right now!!! These just came in the mail last week for baby girl, so naturally I had to check and make sure I didn't miss anything else!! Holy cuteness galore! Somebody stop me!!!

Clean Eating........snack edition + shrimp tacos

I love to snack so here are some healthy snack options for all you peeps like me :)
Dreaming of those chocolate apples right now!

Shrimp Tacos with no mayo slaw
One of the easiest and tastiest dishes ever!
Buy a bag of slaw, add 1/2 cup of greek yogurt, one half squeezed lemon, one tbsp of white wine vinegar, and 2 tbsp of honey. Mix all together, and toss in with the slaw.
For the shrimp I just tossed them with olive oil, lemon juice, and salt and pepper. Then Todd grilled them for a few minutes on each side.
Ta-da, healthy dinner served!
 My kids wouldn't touch it ha!

A pop of color.............

So it's no secret that I love color. I feel so fun and energized when I am wearing bright colors, probably why I adore Lilly so much! Funny I love to wear color, but in my home I prefer very little.
Anyway, back to the point.......

I was super pumped when my new top arrived! I wish I would have got it on sale, but oh well, you win some you lose some :) Luckily for you guys if you like it, it's included in the friends and family sale at Saks, as are my jeans!
{they are just a little shorter on the model ;)

 Check out that goofy balance ;)

Outfit Details
Shark tooth bracelet // Shoes old similar here 

And I had planned an entire outfit post on this romper, but there are only a few left. It's probably the most comfortable thing I have ever put on! Act fast if you want this one!
Oh yeah, do y'all like the black sandals? Thanks for all the help!

I'll be back tomorrow with some clean eating recipes!! xoxo

Easter Weekend + Pretty Things............

I hope you all had an amazing Easter! I know we sure did. I wish the weather would have been a little bit nicer, because it was cold outside! But, the most important part was that we were with our family, and in the end that's all that matters.

This was the best family picture we could get out of the 50 that we took! As you can see it was too cold to wear my Easter dress, but luckily for you guys it's now on sale! Guess I will bust it out later this summer!
*as seen here*

Are you wondering why my child has on a swimsuit? Ha! My parents gave all the grandkids new swimsuits in their baskets and we were making sure it fit! It is the cutest thing ever, and it's included in the friends and family sale for 25% off! You can find it here! Along with the cutest dress and bloomers here and here!

 My dad just bought/ rebuilt the kids a new swing set and they were loving it!!! Mimi and Papas house just got a lot cooler ;)

 My mamas pretty new flowers!! I really wanted to steal them ;)


Now, speaking of the Saks friends and family sale, I tried to update you all on Saturday...... only to find that I was having technical problems and y'all couldn't see jack crap! Still having problems so I improvised and made a collage instead with a few "pretty things"from the sale.
*Remember to use code FRNFAM to take 25% off, and code FREESHIP, for free shipping!
Such a great Lilly selection this year! And the Mara Hoffman isn't to shabby either!

5 on Friday.........

 I am so proud of myself! I have the babies Easter baskets all stuffed and ready. I was going to tell you I did really good and didn't go overboard, but now as I look at their baskets and the few toys you can't see, I realize I may have. ;) Celebrating the holidays with kids is so much!! I can already see the excitement on their sweet little faces!

How beautiful is this outdoor space? I am pretty sure I would never leave. I am dying to spruce up our back deck with some new pillows and and a new pouf, I just can'f find anything I love! I am open if you guys have suggestions on where to look!

Taylor and Carson both loves books! { I know funny considering I HATE to read} But anywho they really love them. Their new thing in the mornings is to grab a stack, and I mean like 50 books, and take them to Taylor's room. They both sit in the chair together and Carson "reads" her books. Sweet boy has convinced himself he can really read, and I just don't have the heart to tell him that's not really what the words are. It really is the sweetest thing ever!

I am being such a tease by posting this, but Todd and I made the most amazing shrimp tacos last night! You will have to wait until next week for the healthy no mayo slaw :) It's pretty delicious!

And because we had spring break this week, I had to share this! I swear this is how my little stinkers think too! On a real note, I honestly loved having no schedule and more laid back time with my babies!
