Life Lately + Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale details and giveaway!!!

// Both Taylor and Carson are doing GREAT at their new schools.  I think it's safe to say that Todd, myself, nor Carson got much sleep Sunday night.  As a parent, it's such a feeling of helplessness to see your kid struggle with feeling anxious and super nervous, and then on top of that, having to leave them in a new place for an entire day by themselves.  

Thankfully, I am happy and so relieved to say that Carson walked to my car on Monday afternoon with the biggest smile on his face.  He hopped in the car and immediately started telling me about his three new friends and how nice everyone was at his new school.  

As for Taylor, she walked in and out of her new school with a smile on her face and without a care in the world.  Yesterday, both of her teachers let me know at pick-up that she is doing awesome and that she is settling in nicely.  

One of the biggest reasons that Todd and I decided to make the move was for the schools.  We had been looking ahead, but after the tour at Carson's school (which is where Taylor will be next year) we knew in our hearts this is where we wanted them both and there was no need to wait around.  Now, to see them both so happy and doing so well already makes Todd and I both feel even more excited about our move and happy that we followed our gut feeling on this decision. 

// I did my first Red Zone fitness class yesterday evening, and holy moly, I can barely move this morning.  It was one of the hardest workouts I have ever done.  I was completely covered in sweat afterwards.  This video shows you almost exactly how the class was last night.  It went for an hour non stop and no rest!  I was beat and starving when I got home last night, and I know fruit is great to eat right after a workout, so I made one of my favorite super easy salads. 

// It's official, the Lilly Pulitzer After Party Sale will be Monday, August 22nd, at 8am.  I know many of you guys are huge fans of Lilly Pulitzer, just like myself, so you know this sale is huge for us die hard fans....haha!  I am planning on having a really good giveaway just like last time for you guys on Monday, so make sure you check here first thing!  Here are two new arrivals that I just ordered...I am loving them both!

Kinsey Tank (only $38) // White jeans sold out (almost identical) // Wedges

(Tank runs big, so make sure you size down.  I am wearing the xs and it's a loose fit on me) 

(This tank dress also runs super large.  I actually had to go down two sizes to the xxs.)
