This and That + Vacuum Help!!


Happy Monday loves! I sure hope you all had a great weekend! Our's was lazy and laid back, and if I am being honest, these are always my favorite :) 

// We made it to the movies on Friday and Saturday! Well, it was just Carson and I on Friday. He had a bad headache when he woke up Friday morning so I kept him home. By noon, he was miraculously feeling much better ;) So by that time, I decided to keep him home and just enjoy the day having some one on one time with him. We saw the movie, Pete's Dragon, and I may or may not have teared up three different times. It was truly a great movie. Then, on Saturday we met some friends of ours to see Storks. No tears while watching this one, but lots of laughs for sure. It was super cute and everyone really enjoyed it! So, if you have kids I highly recommend both of these movies. 



// On Friday night, we had plans to meet our friends and their kiddos for a belated birthday celebration at the Screen Door, but on the way there it started POURING DOWN rain like crazy. And the main reason we chose this place was because of the fun outdoor area. Needless to say, when we arrived it was crowded inside and still raining outside, so we decided to head back to our house and order takeout. The kids had pizza and played for hours, while the adults enjoyed Thai takeout and the chance to talk without being interrupted...so it all worked out in the end. The temps were feeling pretty good Friday with a light, cool breeze before the rain, so I had on a what I like to call a little pre-fall outfit. 

Sweater sold similar here and here // Jeans // Necklace // Bracelet // Booties (on sale) 


And here is Sunday's look, which is also transitional and pre-fall :) 

Tank also here // Jeans (on sale) // Similar open toe booties 


// And speaking of outfits, I also wanted to let y'all know my favorite stripe tee from last year is back in stock!! It's such an awesome tee for ($19) and it goes with almost everything! This one is by the same brand and is also very similar! 



// I've been on a roll with cooking over the last couple of weeks, and yesterday morning I decided to give these pumpkin pie cinnamon rolls a try! Holy Moly, melt in your mouth goodness! I mean, clearly I've got some work to do on the skill of making them look pretty, but trust me, they taste amazing!! If you love pumpkin, you need to make these asap. 


And last, y'all...I need some help!!! This cute little pup and all his shedding hair have taken over our house. Rocky's hair is seriously out of control and it's everywhere. No joke, I swept and vacuumed four times yesterday! 



All this to say that we are in need of a new vacuum, and I would love any recommendations you guys have! Ideally, I would love something cordless and lightweight if possible. We currently have the Dyson V6, and to put it nicely, it has been the biggest piece of crap ever. I've had to call Dyson over a dozen times about fixing it, and every time they send me a new part to fix the problem and then something else breaks on it! I'm sure they've probably done some work in tweaking all the problems with it since we bought our's back in 2012, but I'm not willing to spend this kind of money again and take that chance :) I also love the idea of a robotic vacuum that can just go on it's own. I have heard great things about the iRobot RommerILIFE V3s, and the bObsweep. Do any of you guys have one of these? If so, I would love to hear if you love it or not. Thanks in advance guys, and I hope you all have a wonderful Monday!
