Snippets Around the House + Nordstrom Winter Sale



Happy Friday! I'm so excited the weekend is finally here. My parents called earlier this week and offered to take the kids for the weekend so Todd and I could get everything moved into our closets, and do some organizing. I can't tell you how ready I am to tackle this, and I'm secretly really excited about purging (even more than we already have) and organizing. 


Here's a peek at Taylor's bathroom. We are still missing a rug and a shower curtain, but that's because I haven't found anything that I love :( 





This is the light fixture in the upstairs media/playroom. I'm obsessed with this light, and it looks so cool when turned on at night. 


And last, here's a little peek at our master closet. I am thrilled with how this space turned out, and we ended up having much more room than I thought we would. Hardware is being installed today, and I can't wait to see it all complete. And for those of you that asked, I found the gold rods here


// And I also wanted to let y'all know that Nordstrom just started their huge winter sale yesterday! So many good things now 30-40% off! Lots of North Face on sale for the entire family, along with Hunter boots!  

Below are three pieces that I own and LOVE, and they are all part of the Nordstrom sale. 

Runs large, so go down at least one size.




Runs tts. 




Runs tts, and for reference, I have it in a size 4.

Outfit Round Up...Lots of Good Stuff on Major Sale!!

I know I've shared many of these outfits via Instagram and even some on the blog, but I just realized that a lot of the sizes have been re-stocked and most of them are on major sale! So, I thought I would do a big ol' round up for you all. 

And you guys, I promise...once we get settled in this house I'll be back with my regular posting, and looking to bring you guys some new inspiring content as well. Everything around me right now is in disarray, and so is my brain right now :) 


I can't tell y'all how much I love this sweater, and it was just marked down 40% off making it under $30! For reference, it runs a little on the big side, and I'm wearing the xs. 




These lounge pants are by my favorite brand, Nordstrom Lingerie, and they sold out super fast back in October. I am now happy to report they are back in this pretty pale pink in all sizes! 




This fleece wrap runs tts and I'm wearing the xs. Right now, it's on sale for 40% off!

Life Lately - Pictures from our Mountain Trip


Good morning, and Happy Valentine's Day friends. I'm so sorry for my absence around here. This new house thing is consuming a lot of my time, and at the end of the day I just want to turn my brain off and hang with Todd and the kiddos. 

That being said, I feel like we are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. The paint and hardware installation is almost finished on all of our closets and built-ins, so hopefully by this weekend we will be able to move in all our clothes and get the kids toys organized as well. I am so looking forward to feeling settled and sharing some of the details in the house. 

After trying out a few different chairs in our dining room and having no luck, I called on my designer friend Sarah Swanson to help me out. She suggested these chairs with our white wash table, so I placed my order and they should be here by next week sometime!! I'm loving how this space is coming together...so light and neutral.








// I can't even begin to tell you guys what a blast we had in the mountains! I know you are probably thinking it had to be complete chaos with 14 adults and 16 kids, but it really wasn't.  The house was so spacious and laid out so well that it didn't feel chaotic at all. The adults and the kids all had so much fun together, and we all stayed up way too late almost every night :) A lot of you on Instagram asked me where we stayed, so here's the link to the house in Sapphire, NC. I highly recommend this house to everyone with a large group, because it was amazing! 

And prepare yourself for picture overload :) 

My little monkeys and I when we first arrived on Thursday. It was freezing on Thursday and Friday morning, but after that it warmed up to the high sixties and even low seventies on Saturday. 


I lived in these leggings and these boots (also here) the entire weekend. And this jacket was perfect for keeping me warm and cozy on Thursday and Friday. 


On Friday morning, we headed out to go tubing which was only 200 hundreds yards from the cabin. It was so nice to be able to walk back and fourth and not have to load everyone into our cars. 





I'm so disappointed that we never got around to taking any adult pictures, but we enjoyed many nights by the fire pit laughing and telling old stories. 


The kiddos LOVED the hot tub, and there was usually a few of them in there at all times.


What I wore on Saturday. It was a little chilly first thing, so we headed out to let the kids ski for the first time. Taylor hated it, and I could tell Carson did too, but his excuse was that it was boring ;) 








It truly was one of the best weekends ever, and I feel so blessed to have every single one of these babies and their parents in our lives. 



// And last, I wanted to share this terry convertible pullover that I wore yesterday. It is so comfy, and I love that it can be worn a few different ways. A lot of the sizes in the stripes are sold out, so I would grab one now if you want it and happen to see it in your size! And for reference, its runs a little big. I'm wearing the xs petite.

Wishlist Wednesday

Happy Wednesday, y'all! Todd and I are are heading to Greenville with the kids around lunch time today to spend the night with his aunt and uncle and also go see Bon Jovi!! I can't tell you guys how excited I am about about seeing him in concert. I've a had a huge crush on Bon Jovi for as long as I can remember, and I can sing almost every single one of his songs word for word. If you love Bon Jovi as much as I do, make sure you follow along on Instagram, as I'm sure I'll be sharing a few Instastories! 


With our St. John trip less than three weeks away, I have quite the wish list going on over here. That being said, I thought it would be fun to share everything that I'm dreaming of adding to my closet (and my suitcase). 

Loving this adorable off the shoulder dress, and the price tag even more. And if blue isn't you color, it also comes in five other colors, including a gorgeous red and pale pink. 




Each time I went to snatch this beauty up last year my size was sold out, so when I saw it was back in stock yesterday I had to grab it up. Now I'm just hoping it's not going to be too long. 



I love everything about this blouse, but the back may just be my favorite part. 




A good pair of skinny jeans that are under $80....sign me up :) 




They had me at stripes and off the shoulder with this beauty. I also own several different pieces from this brand, and they are super comfortable with great quality. 



I have been on the hunt for the perfect pair of slip-ons, and I think I've finally found them. I love that they are white with a little texture, and they will also go with almost every outfit. 

My pasty white body needs all the help I can get, and I've heard great things about these wipes! I will report back next week after I try them out. 


I love the color, the pattern, and the gorgeous neckline on this suit. I'm thinking it will need to join me on my trip for sure!

Life Lately....


// Kept things comfy and cozy while watching the Super Bowl on Sunday. And when I say watching, I only mean the commercials and the halftime show :) 

Trust me, you are going to want this boxy fleece top in every color they make! It is the softest, comfiest thing ever. 




// Taylor started dance last week, and watching her practice is about the cutest thing I've ever seen. She is so into it, and everyday after school she wants to put on her tutu and ballet slippers while showing us all of her moves. 


// Speaking of Taylor, her summer wardrobe is already looking better than mine. I so wish they made the pom pom tote in my size with that nice price tag :) 



// On Saturday evening, Todd and I decided to just chill with the kiddos and have a low key family night. Todd grilled mini sliders and I whipped up a batch of parmesan truffle oil fries. If you've never made these, do yourself a favor and make some stat! Here's the easy recipe I like to follow. 




// Last week, the weather here was incredible and in the high seventies, so I was able to finally bust out this adorable off the shoulder top! 

Off the shoulder Top //Jeans sold out similar here and here // Sandals (25% off)



// The new light for my office arrived last week, and Todd hung it this past weekend. I am smitten with it, and I think it ties in so good with this room. A few of you on Instastories asked me to share the source, so here you go.
