Thoughts on a Wednesday!!!



* First, thank y'all so much for all your advice and thoughts on our kitchen!! It was such a huge help and I can't wait to make some final decisions (of course y'all will be he first to know)! And one day in my dream house I would like this kitchen. Please and thank you!

* Today is the very last day to shop the Lilly sale! Still so many great pieces and sizes!
My purchase yesterday included this topthese shorts (in pink), this sweater and this dress!! 

Here's my top picks under $50.00



And here are mine under $100.00 



And I am really considering this cardigan  and this tunic for a cover-up today! I'll update you guys today if they add anymore 'must haves'.

Yep they did it!!!! 2 of the best dresses in my opinion were just added!!! And so was this adorable necklace that is pictured with both dresses!!!!









* I am so very proud of my little guy. He has done so great with his first two days of kindergarten. I, however, have been struggling a little with breakfast ideas. My main goal is to make sure his tummy is completely full so he can focus and that he stays full until lunch time. I went on a little search and found some great ideas so I thought I would share.  




Carson LOVES doughnuts so I am really hoping these will be a hit!



* I tried out the Younique mascara last week and all I've got to say is WOW!! This stuff is amazing...makes your eyelashes double in length and thickness. I think I am officially hooked.
I tried to do a little before and after for you, but the pictures don't quite do it justice! And please excuse the bad lighting and way too up-close in your face shots!

* I am loving these flats for fall.  I know they would go with everything and Yosi hands down makes the most comfortable shoes ever!! 

My sandals I am wearing below are like walking on clouds, or what I imagine walking on clouds would feel like ;) 




* Last, I am looking so forward to me and Todd's little getaway this weekend. We decided on The Sanctuary and we have lot's of fun things planned. The one we are most excited about is the adult twilight paddling. Doesn't that sound fun!!? I have a feeling we will also be spending lots of time at the adult only pool. It looks beautiful!!!

  1. So excited for your trip this weekend I can't wait to hear all about it. and one breakfast Sterling loves is banana pancakes- I buy the Aunt Jemima whole wheat box and then add mashed bananas to the mix. You can double the batch and make extra and just keep in your freezer!

  2. Very jealous of your trip this weekend. I love the Sanctuary! Makes me feel fancy. :) And your eyelashes look crazy good!! I've tried every mascara from $5-$40, and my favorite is still The Colossal mascara by Maybelline in the yellow tube.

  3. I make the donuts for football games and they are always a big hit! Yogurt cups have been working out well at our house in addition to toast/english muffins and fruit.

  6. I love leopard flats, and I'm on the lookout for Pointy toe ones ;). Alright, you have convinced me, I'm getting that mascara ASAP! I saw it on a friend yesterday, and I honestly thought she had falsies on..it's that good! Have fun this weekend!

  7. So happy that Carson is loving school. I know this isn't original, but my little guy loves oatmeal with a sprinkle of brown sugar and fresh fruit. And I can not wait to hear what you decide about your kitchen! So exciting!
