This and That

Good morning friends and happy Monday!

It's been quite a while since I've shared what we've been up to around here so I thought I would kick Monday off by sharing a little 'this and that' with y'all! 

This past weekend I only pulled my phone out once to snap this picture before we headed out for lunch with the kiddos on Saturday.  Other than that, we had a really nice, laid back weekend with a lot of family time which consisted of movies in the bed, Nerf gun fights, and a lot of outdoor time by the fire pit. 

The weather was so nice the weekend before last.  It was cool outside, but the sun was out so it was the perfect day for a bike ride. 

Along the bike trail, we stopped at the kids favorite tree and also looked for shells along the beach. 

I had so many dm messages about Taylor's tutu sweater dress.  I purchased it from Amazon here and Taylor is wearing it in a 6 tall. 

// This was last Tuesday in Charlotte with some of my favorite girls before heading out to see Justin Timberlake!  It was such a fun night, and let me just say, Justin did not disappoint in concert. 

What I wore 

 // New Year's Day fun with these guys! 

Our good friends recently moved out to Meggett, and I'm not going to lie, being out there surrounded by the water and a lot of land was magical and so peaceful! 

The kiddos and Todd even talked me into playing some football with them.  I definitely got my cardio in for the day and realized how bad I need to step it up in the gym...ha! 

// And last, because this dress is such a good one and I know it was sold out for a long time, I wanted to let y'all know it's back in stock in all sizes and colors!  You guys will not believe the quality and the fit of this dress for only $20!

Happy New Year + Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale

Good morning friends and Happy New Year!! 

I hope you have all had a wonderful start to 2019!  I am excited to catch you guys up on everything we've been up to along with some new lifestyle rituals we plan to start this year. 

I know many of you have noticed I've been MIA around here and my social media lately, and honestly, I just needed to take a mental break for myself and my family.  For the last few months I've been doing a lot of deep thinking along with CBT therapy, and I have really working on myself and the cause of my anxiety.  

While I still have a ways to go, I feel hopeful after realizing some of the causes and I'm looking forward to applying new tools I've learned about to help me manage it.  I promise I will share more on this topic soon, as I know a lot of you have shared that you also have struggles with anxiety as well.  Even though circumstances may differ for each of us, and the cause for past and present struggles are different, I feel that I'm learning some life changing tools that are helpful to implicate a more enjoyable, fulfilling life.  So with all that said, cheers to the start of a New Year...I have a feeling 2019 is going to be a good one!! 

What better way to kick off the New Year than the start of the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale!!!

* This year's sale starts today and will last two days only.  It will end on Tuesday, January 8th at 11:45am EST. 

* Also, a lot of new styles will be added on Tuesday this year, and I have a little cheat sheet that I will update you guys with very soon as far as what will be on there. 

* And last, I will be updating you guys with my favorites along with size / fit information throughout the day along with a fun little giveaway so stay tuned!

Last Minute Gift Ideas Under $50

Hello ladies and happy Monday! 

Anyone else feel like they're running around like a chicken with their head chopped off!?!?  I mean, if I'm being honest, that's pretty much how I always feel...ha!  But with only eight days left until Christmas, the struggle is real! 

I am literally still in my pajamas ordering last minute gifts, class party supplies, and finishing up all of our "Santas gifts" for the kids.  That being said, I thought I would show you all a few things that I ran across that I think would make awesome last minute gift ideas for almost anyone you still have left on your list.  And best part, everything I'm including can be ordered and delivered to your doorstep in the next two days! 

This is such a pretty utensil set, and judging from the perfect five star review, the quality must be pretty amazing!  And you can't beat the under $40 price tag for a six piece set including the marble utensil holder.

This brand has quickly become one of my favorite brands ever!  I swear, everything I've ever ordered not only feels amazing, but the quality is outstanding!  And I don't know of any women that wouldn't want a good cozy cardigan, especially one that can be worn for dressing up or just lounging around.  

Prettiest candle ever, and added bonus, it's 20% off right now.  I've actually smelled this scent in the store before and it smells divine. 
I've heard nothing but great things about this brand, and what guy couldn't use a nice 'after' shaving set. 

I know this one is not very original, but I also know a lot of men grill and could probably use new grill utensils.  Plus, you can't beat the $29 price tag for this quality stainless steel set. 

We have four of these copper mugs and we love to make fun drinks while using them.  This would be so awesome to give someone with this cocktail mixer kit!

Y'all know that I'm a HUGE fan of essentials oils, and this is the brand that I use and LOVE!  This is such a great starter pack and comes with all of my favorite oils.  Also, this $22 diffuser would be great to add along with it.  It's the diffuser that I now have four of, and use everyday and night in my office and all of our bedrooms. 

These sheets are SO comfy and would make the perfect gift for almost anyone!  Plus, they wash and dry so well. 

Last, but not least, when in doubt...slippers are always a good idea!  This is another brand that I swear by, and Todd has the mens version of these here and loves them.  The mens slippers are also currently half off!!
