Happy almost Friday!!!

Hey guys thanks so much for your comments today! So glad to know I am not alone in my craziness! Ha! 

There are so many good sales today, so I thought I would drop in and share!! Most of these will go fast, as you know that how it works on Rue La La !! 

// Hudson  jeans are Rue la la today!!! Loving these these skinny jeans!!

Along with Rebecca Minkoff!! This shift dress is adorable! 

// Loft is killing it again, and they have added even more new arrivals! Today the are offering 50% off the entire store!! Use code HALFIES to save!! Lou & Grey are also included in the sale :) 

// And last Old Navy is a huge half off sale as well! Goodness the baby section is killing me :) 

Top and Bloomer Set - can you believe it's only $10.00. 

Real Life.....true confessions

// When an idea pops in my head, I get zoned in and it consumes my mind.  It's hard for me to focus on other things until my idea, project, goal, or whatever it may be, is complete.  In some ways, I like this about myself because I get things done, but another part of me wishes I could let things go, and focus on other things while still completing my project/goal.  I hope that made sense? 

// I am pretty sure that I am the worst in the world at spelling.  It's always been my weakness.  I can remember in high school and college I loved writing papers.  I could dream up a story in a minute and I loved to write, but mercy...that red pen, it was all over the place.  Ha!  I can still remember my teachers saying, "I wish I could give you an A because your story was great, but your grammatical errors were horrible!"  I like to say it was because I was just zoned in on making the story good :) 

// I can already tell Taylor has my personality.  She is very strong willed, and does not like the word NO!  This makes my mom laugh, and she tells me it's payback!  Yeah, I gave my parents hell from the time I was two until I was about twenty!  My brother was the good child :) 

// I finally feel in control of my anxiety.  Don't get me wrong, I still have my moments, but for the most part, things are really good in that department.  I am not sure if it's my medication, or the fact that the older I get, the more I like and accept who I am.  I used to fear that in a crowd of people, I would say something silly or embarrassing, but I don't feel that way anymore.  And you know what, on most occasions, I usually do one out of the two, or both! 

// I am really, really proud of Todd.  I don't tell him this near enough, and I just assumes he knows it. I need to be better at telling him how much I love him, because without him I would be lost.  He may drive me nuts sometimes, and make me say ugly words, but he's my best friend in the entire world. 

// Speaking of friends, I get real defensive of my friends.  It actually makes me extremely mad, and upset, to see someone say something ugly or hurt their feelings.  I am the same way with my kids.  I can get real ugly, real fast, when you mess with the people I love.  That being said, when someone says something about me, I am usually pretty calm and I actually handle it a lot better without losing my cool.

// If I ever wake up in the middle of the night, it's really hard for me to go back to sleep.  My head starts spinning, and I find it hard to turn it off.  I also feel much more dramatic and emotional about things in the middle of the night.  Then, when the morning comes, whatever it may have been that I was stressing over, seems so small and silly.  Does this happen to anyone else?

Steal v/s Splurge

I always love a good steal, especially when I find one that looks almost identical to a splurge!!  I swear on some of these, the steal looks just as nice, if not nicer than the splurge!

And speaking of splurges, Shopbop just marked down a town of designer brands :)

Good Things on a Tuesday..........

// You ladies know how much I love my Divine Cream moisturizer.  I've been using it for over a year now, and my skin feels amazing! I was hesitant to give the oil a try, but figured since it was from the same line and had such rave reviews, it was probably going to be pretty good!  Y'all, it is so, so good! And the almond milk concentrate will make your legs feel like a baby's butt!

PS - L'Occitane always offers free shipping on all orders!!! 

// I am feeling very emotional about my baby bean turning three soon.  I feel like this is the age where they officially turn into a little girl, and are no longer babies, but on the bright side, we (AKA - me) are having so much fun planning her party!  Our dining room is starting to look like a candy store :) 

// I am crazy obsessed with this adorable embroidered dress!!! And the best part, it's $34.95 and comes in three colors!! 

// Peony season has officially started, and thanks to my girl Nat, I picked up a little bunch at Harris Teeter yesterday!  Why can't these bloom all year long?!?!

// My search for the perfect self tanner has come to an end!  I have found it!!  I ended up ordering this set because I wanted to give the cellulite body lift a try.  I've only used it once, so I will be sure to report back soon as far as results!  Either way, the sunless tanner gets an's amazing! 

// Dying to try this chicken salad recipe!!  I don't love mayonnaise, so I am going to try it with a little greek yogurt, and see how it turns out! 

// Last, One Kings Lane has some serious goodness going on in their home department!!  Plus, the prices are pretty awesome too!
