5 on Friday.......


// We leave in just six short days for our trip to Disney!!  About a month ago we changed our plans from going on a Disney Cruise to taking a trip to Disney World!!  We are going with some great friends of ours, and we decided that making the trip to Disney instead of taking the cruise would be easier for both families.  We are so darn excited!!  We are staying in a house about five minutes outside of Disney.  Everyone will have their own (themed) room, we will have our own pool, and the basement is a cool game room for the kids!  I can't decide if I am more excited about telling the kids (we have something pretty cool planned for that as far as surprising them) or if I am more excited to see Taylor meet Mickey Mouse for the first time!!  It's probably a tie :)  Disney World, we can't wait for the magic to begin!! 


// I am sure some of you may have noticed a few things changing in our family room downstairs. It's in the process of a little mini-makeover, and it is almost complete :)  I am working with my friends over at Framebridge right now on the final touches!  Oh, and the new pillows on the couch are made by the talented couple at Motif Pillows!  I can't say enough about their amazing work!  Here's a little peek at what's going on (the mirror is no longer there). 

Sofa (similar) // Lamps  //  Hide Rug Similar


// Two outfits I am loving right now...........



Love this maxi, and the fact it's only $84.00!


// I can not wait to start the fun, new salad series with you guys next week!  I love a good, cold salad in the hot summer, and not mention, I always feel great after I eat one!  I made this one last week for a cookout we attended, and you guys, it was crazy, crazy good! 




// Last, because this story has weighed so heavy on my heart....please, please pray for this family.  I can not imagine the pain they must be in right now, but I know God has a special plan for these two sweet angels.  If you would like to donate you can do so here.

Summer Trends..... for a steal


Man I love summer, and all the fun fashion that comes with it! So many cute trends and cool designs this year! Here are just a few of my favorites that I've found for one heck of a steal!! 

Beyond obsessed with this tunic!! And it's now marked down to $29.99!!!!




Loving the floral print on this dress! Originally $400.00 and now it's marked down to $130.00!



Pretty sure it doesn't get any cuter than this flamingo romper! 


The look of the Joie sandal without the crazy price tag!! 





Come in the gorgeous colors too!!! 




The cutest little tote for $28.00! And you guys it's pretty large!  It also comes in this adorable watermelon print here



Hmmm look familiar to you? How about this $30.00 price tag!?!



And this is not technically a summer trend, but it's for sure a stunning summer steal!!! 

And this scallop bedding would be picture perfect with it!

For the golfer in your life.......


I am pretty sure most men love golf about as much as us ladies like to shop.  Todd doesn't get to do it as often as he would like, but it's still one of his favorite sports.  He actually let me tag along with him this week while he played nine holes, and I must say, it was pretty peaceful. 

As you may already know by now, Todd loves a good polo and shorts.  The Cutter and Buck polos are some of his favorites, and not for just playing golf.  They are a great fit, and they have a moisture wicking fabric to help you stay cool and comfortable.  Nordstrom really has a nice selection for every shape and size.

Outfit Details 
Polo (size down one size) // Shorts // Watch // Belt // Shoes (similar



 And Todd has also requested another pair of these shorts.  I must say, they feel pretty comfortable to the touch.  The material is soft and really lightweight. 




So if the man/men in your life love to golf, you should definitely check out the golf section here. Such great gift ideas for Father's Day. 


Thank you Nordstrom for partnering on this post.

This and That........

// Carson and I are both pretty excited that he only has two weeks left of school!!!!  I have missed my little buddy like crazy this year, and I am sooo looking forward to a fun-filled summer with both he and Taylor! 
A few weeks back I suggested to him that we make a summer bucket list.  After I explained to him what this was, he was on board all the way!  




// We had the best weekend ever!!  Sunday was a beach day filled with family and friends! 
(My swimsuit is on sale here, and you can find Taylor's here)




// You guys, I think I've been hiding under a rock!  Last week I made my first watermelon salad!?!?! It was so delicious, light, and refreshing!  I can already tell this will be a summer regular for our family (even though the kids will just pick out the watermelon and eat it separate).  I was thinking of starting a new ten weeks of salads series?  It would be similar to my cookie series, except much healthier ;)  If this is something you ladies would like to see, please let me know! 


// Vineyard Vines nailed it again with their new arrivals!!  Dying to get my hands on these seashore shorts!!  Wouldn't they be adorable paired with this tee?!  Best tee in the world! 



// My flamingo obsession continues!! 







// And last........well, because it's Monday :) And these are too funny!
