What the kids wore for Christmas cards + discount code!!!

 You've heard me talk about my love for Little English many times here on this blog. So there was no question when they launched their adorable fall line where I would be ordering Carson and Taylor's Christmas outfits from. 

I wanted something coordinating, but not too matchy matchy. And I also wanted to make sure it was something they could wear all fall and winter, not just for Christmas. I am pretty sure I hit the nail on the head with the outfits I selected! I adore these pieces so much! Thank you Little English for making such precious and classic clothing!

Now the good news for all you guys! You get to save 30% off the entire collection with the code HWTH30.

The latest and the greatest.........

So instead of wishlist Wednesday this week, I am bringing you my latest and greatest purchases! I really love to see when people find great deals, and what is better than a mirror selfie to show it off?

What, you don't love a mirror selfie? Well I sometimes try to rope Todd into doing it, but that always ends in me saying one more, that's not good, and him rolling his eyes. And nine times out of ten I still like my mirror selfie best ;) Maybe I should invest in a good lens and have someone teach me their magic photography ways? 

Okay back to the latest and greatest.

*Update they do have my exact skirt here on sale,and in many other colors*!!! 

free people ruched skirt (my color no longer available) but I am loving the black and army color too. Can we talk about how this skirt is so flattering and sucks you right in. You must grab one of these!
Ann Taylor sheer tulip back top I can not even say enough good things about this top. The back is gorgeous!*The black skirt with the Mulberry top would be amazing together*
For sizing reference I got the xs in both the skirt and top.

For a less dressy look you can un-tuck this top.
I have had my eye on her for a while, and she's finally on sale. Act fast she's almost gone! 
I purchased an xs and I have a good bit of room in it.

My color combo is no longer available, but I think the other three options are just as pretty.
I sized down in this xxs because I wanted this sweater more fitted.

*********************************************************************************
PS This topthis top and this dress are all on major sale right now! I want all three bad!! Question though,you think I could rock the ivory Rag and Bone sweater dress into the winter? If you say yes, I am getting it!!

What I wore.....Christmas cards

  I thought I would give you guys a little sneak peek into what I wore for our Christmas card pictures this year. I don't want to show any of the pictures I am actually using, and give away the surprise of our card. So here are just a few. Plus I know asos always sells out of styles quickly, so I wanted to make sure it was still in stock just in case any of you liked the dresses and shoes ;) 

Stayed tuned on Thursday to see what Taylor and Carson wore, and for a discount code! 
*the first photo is not the outfits that Taylor and Carson wore for the Christmas pictures, they are even cuter*

Note: I am no model, and the camera is not always my friend, so bare with me people ;)



My outfit:  navy sweater dress/ boots (similar) and(similar ) /necklace (similar )

Our weekend+ iPhone in the toilet..........

Yes you read that title correct, my iPhone fell in the damn toilet. It happened Saturday night at my neighbors right before the adorable hayride. I had only had one drink before this happened, so I can't blame it on the alcohol. I had it in my back pocket, and went to pull up my pants, and splash the iPhone was swimming. It was kinda like that moment your kid jumps in the deep end with no life jacket and can't swim. Your motherly instincts kick in and you go in life save mode. I don't think I've ever moved so fast, ripping off toilet paper wiping her down saying all kinds of prayers and cuss words at the same time. Ahh, but she was gone :( So I did what any rational person would do and I started pounding limaritas, you know to take away the pain ;) Okay I've gone way too far already with the iPhone story  haha! In the end my camera is all water logged, but my phone still works. I will be getting a new one on Tuesday, so all is well in the world ;) 

Now back to our weekend.
The one picture we got from the hayride courtesy of daddies phone! It really was so much fun! Carson was all smiles at first, but then we had some "creepers" jump out along the way, and he was not really feeling that ;) Taylor on the other hand thought they were hilarious!



On Sunday we had another little Halloween party. It was so precious, and all the little details were perfect! But of course the camera I took with me will not download this morning ;) So this is all I've got ;)

Happy Monday guys! No school today for my babes, so Carson and I are going on a double date to see a movie. Cloudy chance of Meatballs 2, here we come!

O yeah and a few of you asked about Taylor's little Frye booties. You can also find them here, and here. They are the cutest things I have ever seen, Taylor hasn't taken hers off yet!

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

Putting new sand in our sandbox. This has provided my kids with hours of entertainment until daddy gets home ;) I actually sat in there with them the other day and made some killer sand pizza and cupcakes. I forgot how fun much playing in sand really is.


My new jeans arriving in the mail yesterday! I am one smitten kitten! They are the perfect length, color, and the high waist is amazing. Like, bring that cheeseburger to mama kind of amazing :) I think jeans are becoming my new favorite clothing!!




My women's bible study. We are doing the Gideon study, and so far it's been amazing. I really felt God was tugging at me to do this study, and I am so happy to be a part of it. 15 amazing women all in one house every Thursday night, now that's pretty awesome. Lauren, my dear friend who is putting it on and hosting every week has really been my little angel. Never met anyone with such big heart, and always so happy!
 


The fact we have two Halloween parties this weekend. Not for us, just the kids. No dressing up for Todd and I this year :( But the one on Saturday night will involve beer, pizza, and a hayride all in the comfort of our neighborhood!
Then on Sunday my neighbor Ann is putting on a costume party for the tots, and my girl LOVES Halloween decorations, so I can't wait to see her house ;)
And if I am feeling really crafty I may even make these dirt cups. Carson has requested we add worms to ours.

Last I leave you with this e-card, because it's so true and so funny

PS If you missed my late post yesterday, make sure you go check out the Tory Burch private sale!!

I am tired..........and TB Private Sale

Okay I know some of y'all hate when I bitch, so I am going to try not too haha! But I will tell you I am freaking tired. I am sitting here barely able to type this because my eyes are wanting to shut. Do kids ever sleep through the night? Come on mamas with older babies, give this mama some hope and tell me yes!!! It's just been one of those weeks, you know when you start your period, nothing fits, you want chocolate for every meal, and o yeah your kids don't make it one night with a full nights sleep. O shit, and I said I wasn't going to bitch, sorry! I sometimes just like to keep it real!

But........On a better note good old Tory Burch is having an insane sale!!!

Like this stacked hobo originally $465.00 now $250.00
 And these flats originally $250.00 now $125.00
Or if you dig the logo on the toe, these flats are marked down to $149.99

Obsessed with this belt!! Originally $175.00 now $69.50
 Loving these yellow studs and for $34.00 I'd say that's one heck of a deal!!

Wishlist Wednesday..........



metallic + dots together = sweater perfection! 
 
Don't you want to throw this on and snuggle up with a cup of coffee. I know it's not super long(could be on me though) but I think you could totally rock this with leggings!
 
Pink and gray are two of my favorite colors ever. Plus I've had a hard time finding sweaters I love this year, so I am thinking I should grab this one up!
  
Speaking of my love for pink, I've found my new winter coat. Guess what she's under $100.00 too!!! Have I mentioned how happy I am that pink is the new "it" color this year?
 

 How great is this little cotton dress? It comes in tons of colors, but my favorite is the hot neon pink. Even better is the price.....coming in at $29.50!!

So I knew as soon as I saw the dress above, with that awesome belt, I was going to need that too. You all know how I feel about a belt. I think it can totally make or break an outfit, plus for us shorter gals it can make us look skinnier and longer.

If I could think of one word to describe how I feel right now it would be struggling! I forget that I am not the rock-star that I once was, and that I am now a mother of two and can't quite hang like I use too ;)

None the less we had a fabulous weekend! I already told you guys all the plans we had, so I think it's time to share the pictures!

Dinner Friday night at Xiao Bao Biscuit. We all ordered the entire top half of the menu and split in between the 8 of us. Everything was amazaballs!!!

Saturday we had Natalie's sprinkle! Everything was perfect, and the mom to be looked just gorgeous!! Little miss prissy was showered with lots of goodies, I cant wait to get over there and really look through it all ;)

Saturday evening we took the kids to the pumpkin patch at Legare farms. We had such a great time! I like to say it's a little more "country" than your average pumpkin patch.  For example you get to actually feed the cows from the hayride haha!






It was also the perfect opportunity to bust out my new Hunter rain boots. Love them so much, don't laugh when you see me sporting them in no rain and a clear sky.


And now the reason I am struggling........... The southern ground festival !! Ya'll it was a freaking blast! But now tequila and I are on a break again.We hung out from 1:00pm until around 12am, so yeah we've seen enough of each other for a while ;) No really the music, the company, the little bit of food we ate, and the party bus were all so much fun!

2) On Saturday, celebrating the precious baby girl inside of this gorgeous bump. Can't wait to hold and kiss this baby!!! And how great does my girl look 9 months preggo?

3) On Sunday we are heading to the Southern ground food and music festival with some great friends! Goodness help me come Monday morning cause it's an all day event. It should be a blast, so the hangover will be worth it! Plus I just found out we will be taking a party bus, so I hope y'all don't expect a Monday morning post ;)

All these amazing little tots that I have had the pleasure of watching grow over the years. Nothing compares to the friendship I have with these mamas and the love I have for each of their babes.

Just for laughs I had to show you this one first. Please take note of all their faces, and silly Taylor peeking over the jump-castle.


 And them last year........time slow down please.

This bedroom. It just screams calm and peace to me! Love everything about it.
