Neon Pink and Boyfriend Jeans












As soon as I started downloading these pictures the song Pink by Aerosmith popped in my head and I've now been singing it on repeat for the last hour. Yeah sorry, now you are probably going to have it stuck in your head too ;) 

But for real, I've never met a pink piece of clothing I didn't love, and this sweater is no exception! I chose to go up in size to the small for a more loose fit, and I'm so glad I did...especially with my winter diet. And right now it's on sale for 50% off, which makes it under $40...whoop whoop!

This and That........

Happy Monday, everyone! It's an extra happy Monday around here...Todd is taking the day off to hang out with us! We have to head back to the old house (again) to pack a few more things, but then we have the rest of the day to just hang as a family.  


// Speaking of the old house, a big THANK YOU to everyone that came out Saturday! Wowza, I didn't expect that many people, but I'm certainly not complaining because we sold about 90% of all of our stuff, plus, I love meeting some of my local readers. I know some of you asked via Instagram if I would be selling anything on my blog or Instagram, and the answer is yes. Whatever I don't sell today (a few people asked if they could come look), then I will plan on selling on my Instagram account Caycee07blogsale. 

Unless they go today, these four dresses will most likely be for sale. 


 // In other news, trust me when I tell you...this ruffle sweater is a must have :) It's super soft and the ruffle sleeves are the cutest thing ever! For sizing reference, it runs tts. 




// Sunday morning was spent lounging in my favorite pajamas. I'm embarrassed to say that I have them in three other colors as well. They are the best pj's I've ever worn, and as we all know, I've tried a lot...ha! I just couldn't resist these adorable stripes. And for sizing reference, these run HUGE, so make sure you size down. I'm wearing the xs, and I have a good bit of wiggle room. 



Our barn door was finished earlier last week, and I almost died when I finally got to see it in person. I can't tell you guys how obsessed I am with this door. The guys at Salt Wood Co. are simply amazing! We met in person a few times and talked about the wood I wanted, the design, and the color. And from that, they created EXACTLY what I had envisioned in my head. After I saw our barn door I knew I needed them to create our custom table in the kitchen as well. So, you guys will have to stay tuned for what we dream up for that space. I may even be able to talk them into letting me come by and snap some pictures while they build it:)

Carson's Bathroom (what we have so far) + My Plan

I know you guys have requested to see more of the house, and originally, I wanted to have everything complete and looking just right before I shared it with y'all. I'm now realizing that if I wait for that to happen, it may be a very long time from now...ha! Plus, I thought it would be fun to share it's current state, my future plans, and then a really good after.  

So today, I wanted to share Carson's bathroom. We still have a few things to add in, but I'm loving the few little pieces we've added so far. 







Mirror similar here and here // Brushed Nickel Caparros Light




And here's my little mood board for what I'm planning on adding to this space. I am a little torn on the which shower curtain to choose? I would love to know if you guys have a favorite out of the three?

Moving Sale Details + Lilly Pulitzer Giveaway Winners


Good morning sweet friends!! I'm so ready for the weekend, even though all we will be doing is packing and selling :) That being said, I know it will feel so good to get it finished and have the weight off our shoulders. 

I've had a few of you request details about our moving sale this Saturday, so I've included all the information below.  There will be furniture, window treatments, art, clothes, and much more! 




The kids and I picked the two Lilly winners last night on Instastories. I went old school and printed off all of the entries, cut them all out, and pulled them from a bowl. I'm pretty sure I'll never do it that way again (holy sore hands from so much cutting), but the kids loved being able to help out and draw the winners! 

Winner number one- 
Nathalia Washington 



Winner number two- 
Heidi Burnette 



Congrats Nathalia and Heidi!! Shoot me an email at Caycee07@hotmail.com with your mailing address, and I'll get your pretty prizes sent to you right away!

This and That

Happy hump day! I hope you all are enjoying your week so far. 


// Each day I feel like we are slowly getting settled into our new home. Today, we will have someone starting work on all of our built-ins and closets, which makes me so excited. At this moment, we have metal garment racks in most closets and little to no drawer space, so getting laundry done and put away is no easy task. I am so ready to have it all complete, and I can't wait to get every nook and cranny organized. 

And how adorable is this little garment rack? I figured that when Taylor's closet is complete she could use it for her dress up clothes. 




// Our entire family has been gluten free for almost three months now, and I can honestly say it's been life changing. We also cut out dairy for the first two months and just recently started adding it in a few of our gluten free recipes. The only person in our family that seems to have any sensitivity at all to dairy is Todd, and he only seems to have a reaction when he drinks milk. 

So, just to make it easier we all switched to almond milk and everyone around here loves it. I also switched to vanilla almond creamer, and I like it so much more than the dairy creamer I used to put in my coffee. 

I'm planning on sitting down to write an entire post soon on all the positives I've seen in our family since going gluten free, but the biggest positive by far has been Taylor and her ability to focus so much better. It's pretty crazy the difference. Not only have Todd and I noticed, but her teachers have as well. 

My favorite cookbooks are still the ones by Danielle Walker, but I recently ordered these three cookbooks, and I'm excited to test them out.


 


And here's the recipe for the white chicken chili that I made on Monday. I had a lot of requests for this recipe via Instastories, so I thought I would share it here as well. 




// I ordered these two books off Etsy last week, and I'm really excited to start using them. This year my goal is to cook at least four homemade meals a week, and to post regularly on the blog at least four times a week. After a little online researching I knew both of these little books would be perfect for helping me follow through and stay organized.  




// And last, because it's been a while since I've shared a good outfit round-up, here are a few of my recent favorites. 











Sequin Tunic (on sale) // Leggings // Pumps

DAILY UNIFORM - JEANS AND A COZY CARDIGAN







Cardigan also here // Tank similar // Jeans // Booties // Tote

Good morning, and happy happy Monday love bugs! I'm keeping it short and sweet today being that I need to get my booty back to our old house and pack up the rest of our stuff! I really should have prepared a little better for our move, but with the holidays it was just too much and my brain was a scattered mess...ha! But now it's time to get serious and get to packing. And for any of my local readers, we will be having a HUGE moving out sale next Saturday at our old house. We are selling about 90% of our old furniture, and I'll have also have a lot of my clothes for sale as well. So, if you guys are in the market for clothing and/or furniture, you should stop by! 

Before I head out to go pack I wanted to share my daily uniform with you guys, well, that's if I'm not in workout leggings and a sweatshirt...ha! But really, this cardigan is the softest, and you all already know how I feel about these high waist jeans :)

Last Day to Shop The Lilly After Party Sale and Enter Both Giveaways


Hello loves, and happy Friday! What do you guys have planned for the weekend? It's going to be FREEZING here, and we've still got a lot of packing and unpacking that has to be done! Ahhh, I'm not a fan at all of the cold, especially when I have things that require me to be outside! But these things must be done, so I guess I better put my big girl coat on and get over it :) 

In the meantime, I'll just continue to shop the Lilly After Party Sale and dream that it is warm and sunny, and that I could wear all of these pretties this weekend instead. The sale ends today at 1pm, so make sure you grab something now if you want it! 

And because they always like to mess with us, they added a few more items last night and this morning! Happy shopping pretty ladies! And if you haven't already, make sure you go enter my two giveaways here and here. Today is the last day to enter!
