Nordstrom Anniversary Sale - Top 10 Women Picks

Good morning friends and happy happy FRIDAY!! 

Okay, by now I'm sure everybody and their mama knows that today is the start of The Nordstrom Anniversary Early Access Sale!!  Unlike I've done in the past where I've joined in on all the overkill, I decided to dial it way down this year and showcase my absolute favorite picks.  These are items that are not only great deals, but they're also practical, great quality, and ones you will all get a TON of use out of. 

At some point this weekend when I have more time to really dig through the rest of the sale, I will also share my favorite picks for men, kids, and babies of course ;) 


This is by far one of my most beloved items from the sale.  Embarrassingly, I own five different Barefoot Dreams cardigans, and this one, along with this one (which is also on sale) are my favorites! 





These pajamas are hands down the BEST in quality and the most comfortable pair you will ever own! This is another product that I have multiples of, and FYI, they do run large so make sure you size down one size. 



I am pretty sure I will be living in this pullover during fall and winter. 




I swear by these leggings...they suck you in in all the right places.  They have the perfect high waist and they are the perfect length. 



I always try to grab a pair of Nike running shoes during the sale and these are by far my favorites this year! 

This is a GREAT time to grab your favorite Patagonia or The North Face jacket.  This year's selection is great for the entire family.  I am loving this neutral color that can be worn with leggings or even dressed up a little with booties and jeans. 





Under $100 and the perfect color, style, and heel height!! 

These jeans are by FAR my favorite brand of jeans.  I actually bought my first pair two years ago at the Nordstrom sale, and since then I have been hooked! 



I am SO excited about this sweater for fall and winter and I am loving all of the colors they have it in, but this pink is definitely my FAVORITE!! 




Best dress ever, and the price cannot be beat!!  I have this dress in black and white, and have received more compliments on this dress than any other dress I own.  For sizing reference, it runs a little small through the waist and bust, and I have it in the size small.

Chickpea Feta Orzo Pasta Salad + Early Prime Deals Of the Day


Happy Tuesday afternoon, friends!  Sorry for the late post today, I've been running around with the kids most of the morning / afternoon and I'm just now getting a chance to sit down at my computer for a second! 

I actually made this orzo pasta salad last night for dinner and it was absolutely delicious.  I've had such a strong craving for salads, cold pasta salads, and fruits this pregnancy so I was really excited about making this one.  And best part is, it's ever better the next day after the dressing has time to sit and really soak in the orzo and vegetables. 




And next, here is day 6 of the early Amazon Prime deals that are going on today only!  I am really loving all these early savings that they are doing this year before the sale! 












** And last, but not least, today you can also save 30% off all Amazon household brands.  We swear by these paper towels and this toilet paper.  They look and feel just like Bounty and Cottonelle for a fraction of the cost!

Baby #3 + Early Amazon Prime Day Deals

Good morning friends and happy Monday!! 


First off, thank y'all SO MUCH for all the sweet comments and messages on our exciting news!!  I'm not going to lie, part of me can't believe we're actually having a third baby and that we're essentially starting over, but then there's that bigger part of me that is just over the moon and so excited for another sweet, precious baby.  

And to answer the question that I keep getting, yes, Todd and I were trying ;)  But just like it was with Carson and Taylor, we didn't try long...ha!  We had been talking/ joking about a third baby for the last three years or so, but I just couldn't be convinced that I wanted to nor was I sure I could handle another baby...haha! But you know how it works, a few nights night out and a few glasses of wine, and I started thinking I was super woman, and that duh, I could definitely handle another baby.  Plus, Todd can be pretty convincing and knowing that he wanted one more while also knowing what an amazing daddy he is, we decided to give it a try and see what happened! And well...we see how that went down, the first month we tried we got pregnant! 

Also, thank you all so much for asking how I've been feeling.  Other than the nausea that hits a few times a day and being completely exhausted, I am feeling great! 



I also wanted to mention in today's post that AMAZON PRIME DAY is officially only seven days away!!  I am so pumped about this, and I can't wait to share all the good stuff that will be part of the sale this year!! 

But in the meantime, until the sale they are releasing early daily savings and today's savings are SO good so I wanted to mention a few of my favorites and must haves!

Family Beach Happenings + The Best of July 4th Sales

Good morning friends and happy hump day!  I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far.  I am sure a lot of you are getting ready for some July 4th fun! 

Todd and I actually made a quick trip home from the beach so he could catch up on some work (the upside of owning your own business...not).  I decided to tag along to get a few things done with emails and checking on our crazy pups. 

We have been having a lot of fun at the beach and I cannot wait to get back. 

We've all had a blast soaking up the sun on the beach! 


Taylor always loves for her dad to dig a big hole for her to play in.  I can't believe that seven years later that it still keeps her entertained. 


I started the book called The Mother-In-Law this week, and omg, I can already tell it's going to be SO good!! 



I had so many questions via Instagram about my high waisted bikini and sun hat so I am sharing all the links to everything below. 

Also, this swimsuit runs tts and the top straps are adjustable.  For sizing reference, I'm wearing a small. 



Dinner fun at Margaritaville!  The food was okay at best, but the atmosphere makes it worth the visit, especially if you have kids. 


Jumpsuit // Sun Hat // Earrings (only $10) 


Putt-putt with 5 kiddos was interesting to say the least, but hey, they had fun.  Somehow they finished in about half the time it took us six adults ;) 


Clearly I am loving a good jumpsuit this summer.  This one is one of my favorites, and it is so comfy and easy to toss on. 

Jumpsuit (only $16) // Earrings ($10) // TB Sandals


I am sure you all know that since the 4th is tomorrow everybody and their mama is having a big sale to celebrate!  I know seeing all these sales can be overwhelming to say the least, so I've rounded up what I think are the best of the best, plus the ones that are definitely worth taking a peek at.
