Packing my bags........

This morning as I am sitting here sipping my coffee, I need to be packing my bags. I used to be so on top of things, and the old me would have had all this already done! But the "now" me is putting off to the last minute. Let's hope I don't forget anything too important like my undies or deodorant ;)

 In my bag (or what I wish was)..................





Man, I am sure going to miss these little faces!

Thursday's brain dump..........

*This short week has really messed me up! I've been a day off everyday.


*I have almost made it through my first week of summer with the kids. We have had friends over daily, and really it makes it so much more fun! 

* I just ordered this dress from Nordstrom. Get this, I ordered it from the juniors department! $58.00 and free shipping bring it on coral tie dye!


* I am heading out of town @ lunch time on Friday for a weekend bachlorette party! Hot diggty dog I am excited! I will be living it up with all my old high-school girls! We plan to lay out, dine out, and I am pretty sure knowing this crowd, we will be dancing it up all night! 

Cant wait to sit on the beach kid free with one of these in hand.

*Today I have a sitter. No real plans though besides the gym. Thinking I may go pick up some pretty flowers. This deck is just dreamy, and has me wanting more flowers around outside!

Happy Thursday!

The Secret Swim Sale..............

Yep it's that time! Victoria Secret just launched their semi annual sale today. With that sale they have tons of swimsuits for dirt cheap! Plus if you spend $40.00 you get free shipping. I have a bunch of their bikinis, and I love them all. Here are my two favorites.

I love this top because you know my babies stole all my boobs. What that didn't happen to you? But with this top I still have some, and they are not hitting my belly button, they actually make them look a little perky ;) The bottoms are my favorite because they are high enough to cover the c section pooch, but low enough to still look sexy. Plus those strings are adjustable, so if  I had a pizza day I can still get them on ;) Not to mention you can mix and match patterns and styles on these. 

Here are some more pretties I wouldn't mind adding to my overgrowing bikini collection!

Ahhhh......did you guys have a fabulous long weekend? I know we sure did, but holy crap I am still struggling. Could be the fact that I had to wake up at 5 this morning to train? Or maybe the fact that both babies have to go to the doctor today and get shots!!! Not looking forward to this, not at all!

So let's just pretend it is still the weekend, and lets all imagine ourselves sipping lovely cocktails while sitting on this porch. Sound good to you?

It's the weekend.............

You guys doing anything fun this long Holiday weekend?

We have a few fun things planned. Tonight we will be attending the concert on the green. It's the first one of the summer. We always have the best time, and the kids freaking love it. It's always a fun way to kick off the weekend!

We have a beach day planned with some friends who just built a beach house ;) Think margaritas on the beach, walking home, and grilling some yummy food, and more margaritas.

Bags are packed and wardrobes are set :)


O yeah and we will be defiantly spending a lot of time on this!!!

Summer Plans............

Am I the only mama freaking out right now that school is almost over?!?!

Have I mentioned before that I love structure? I do, I really do. I know the long, lazy,  nothing planned days of summer makes lots of people really happy, but they freak me the hell out!

Luckily I have a great group of sahm mommy friends, and we plan to play a lot!!! I also plan to put Carson in a few camps, and have a sitter two days a week for the morning. I can't help but think of the song  "I will survive", every time I think about packing up and taking the kids to the pool. Ya'll Taylor is one, and fearless, and wild did I mention fearless. Lord help me! 

So to keep my mind off this being my last week of having morning freedom, let's talk about what we are going to wear while we  I hang out with my kids all summer!


Dress/Shoes/Shades

ps the Tory Burch sandal was just marked down ;)



Romper/Wedge



Maxi Dress/'Gili' reversible necklace /TKEES Flops

Clean Recipes...........

I am not going to lie, as of late I am quite sick of the same old thing I cook every week. Eating clean healthy meals can sometime be a challenge, and news flash I am no gourmet cook. Plus Carson is so picky, so it makes it really hard. I have decide I have got to step outside of the usual chicken and beans or a roasted vegetable, or I am going to start to hate it. One of my favorite and go to healthy website/magazine is the Clean Eating. They have a great recipes that are filled with healthy all natural ingredients. Here are a few that look delicious, that I am planning on whipping up soon.




How about you ladies, are you stuck in a cooking rut? Got any healthy recipes you want to share with me?

So sad for Oklahoma.... saying prayers for all their families and loved ones today. Just another sad reminder that life is so short, sometimes shorter than we ever think. Lord be with all of Oklahoma.

Taking a moment............

We had a very eventful weekend. Much of it was very fun, but we had a sad phone call on Saturday. My 34 year old uncle unexpectedly passed away. We are not sure what happened yet, but his 10 year old daughter found him on Saturday morning. I am just heartbroken, not only for the loss of my "uncle Daniel" but for his precious daughter who loved her daddy more than anything. He had full sole custody of her, and was an amazing father.He will be badly missed. So if you would please say a prayer for my family during this hard time.

The important stuff............

I promise this is the last party post you will see. I think I kinda saved the best for last. When I look at these pictures I can't help but smile a big ol smile. If I could think of one word to describe these images, I think blessed. I think just how blessed we are to have the most amazing friends and family a girl could dream of. Thank you precious friends and family for making this day and this life so wonderful!









Happy Friday everyone!!!

*We are off baby free to Columbia*  Think hotel, dinner out, celebrating friends, O yeah did I mention baby free!

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

Hey hey it's Thursday!!!

How about a little brain dump? 

 Look at this little gem I found at the one and only Target last week!
 Target has really stepped up their style. Every time to go in to get diapers and formula and I end up leaving with a dress. Tell me you do this too?

The weather in Charleston is making me so stinking happy! It's also making my precious babies happy! Look at them the other morning before school in the backyard. Happy little campers I tell you!

Watching the baby ducks.

Speaking of warm weather, look what's joining the Hewitt family!!!
Ahhh....... who's ready to come over and play? No really, come on over. Bring your kid, a towel, and your beverage of choice ;)

Last, I posted this picture that Carson took of me on instagram. (not too bad with the iPhone for a 4yr old). A few of you asked where my bikini was from. It's the triangle ruffle bikini from Victoria Secret.

Here's a shot of  the bikini in full view. (don't mind Carson with the pillows ;)

ps.... do you notice or should I say "not" notice my my stretch marks near as much?? O yeah ladies I have a new dirty secret, and I can not wait to share it with you!!! Soon I promise!

pps............ Now that the secret is out!!!! I just wanted to say how excited, over the moon, wanna dance and scream excited I am for my best friend Natalie!!! I can not wait to get my hands on this baby and hold it all the time! I love you girl, and couldn't be any happier for you and your growing family!

Taylor turned One............the details

I am going to have to break this up into two post. I didn't want to overwhelm you with 100+ pictures. It truly was a beautiful day! Probably the only time my house will ever have this much pink in it. And for the record all the pretty pink made me so happy. Carson just asked as he saw me posting these, "mommy can we have Taylor another party just like this one tomorrow"? Haha I doubt it son, but I would be lying if I said I didn't want too ;)

Happy Birthday to my beautiful baby girl.
