5 on Friday

ONE // 

These two have been in summer break hog heaven! 

We spent the morning at the water park on Sunday and we all had a blast! We got there as soon as the park opened and we pretty much had it all to ourselves for the first hour. 

We've also been enjoying evenings by the river near our house. 

We even took Rocky on this trip and he loved playing in the water with the kids. 

We saw Incredibles 2 and it was SO good! And we went to the the Northwoods Stadium because they have the best seats and you get to put on your own butter and seasonings on. 

We've had LOTS and LOTS of golf carts rides! This was the other morning before we left to take Taylor to cheer camp. 

 We've also been enjoying Starbucks and their new delicious breakfast items! Their chicken sausage and bacon biscuit is so good, plus, it's packed with a lot of protein!  

My two cute morning dates last week. 

TWO // 
I made the kids a simple little daily chore chart earlier this week, and to my surprise, they have completed every single task everyday! I may have had to remind them about making their beds a few times though ;) 

 Todd and I went on our weekly date last night and we went to one of our favorite spots, Dockery's, and we ate like college kids! I mean, who can turn down loaded pulled pork tater tots!?!? And for my main dish I had the crab ravioli and it was to die for! 

 We ran into one of my girlfriends at the bar and she said, "Let me take a picture of y'all!" At first, I told her I was all pictured out, but she insisted and then told us to kiss. Todd and I both laughed and I'm pretty sure we both felt like a couple of cheeseballs, but now I'm so happy she snapped this. It may just be one of my favorite pictures of us. 

What I wore

 Dress runs big so size down, and for reference, I'm wearing an xs. 

FOUR // 

This handsome fur baby turned 14 years old last weekend!! To celebrate, we bought him way too many treats, including puppy ice cream (which is obsessed with btw). We also took him on a golf cart ride to the river to swim and then we let him sleep in the bed with us! All that said, I'm pretty sure this rotten pup thinks it's his birthday everyday so he probably didn't even notice any difference..ha! 

FIVE // 

And last, here is a big round up of all the recent outfits that I've shared via Instagram and Instastories. I am also including size and fit information since a lot of you have said that helps. 

Swimsuit runs a little on the bigger side. I'm wearing it in the size 2, but sending it back for a size 1. It's a little too loose in the bust and around the sides. 

Swimsuit runs small, and for reference, I ordered a medium in both the top and the bottom. 

Dress runs tts, and for sizing reference, I'm wearing a size 2. 

Dress runs big so size down. For reference, I'm wearing the xs. 

Dress runs really big. For reference, I'm wearing the xs petite, but should have ordered the xxs petite. 

Top (on major sale) // Shorts // Hair Scarf // Sandals // Straw Tote

This dress is only $20 and would be perfect for the 4th of July!! It runs tts and I'm wearing it in the small.

Recent Amazon Fashion Finds

Happy Thursday!! Only one more day until Friday and I can hardly wait! Todd and I have some fun things planned with the kiddos and then a couples date night on Saturday, so it should be a great weekend! 

I have received a lot of awesome feedback on my recent Amazon post, and I've actually found some of my favorite new (super affordable) fashion pieces on Amazon! That being said, I thought I would share a big round up on all of my recent purchases along with the size and fit information.  

 Sleeveless A-Line Dress Embroidered Dress // Earrings // Sandals (on sale)

Women's Strappy Tank Short Set

So obsessed with these lightweight pajamas and you just can't beat the price! They run tts, and for sizing reference, I'm wearing a small. 

Breathable Backless Strapless Silicone Adhesive Invisible Bra

Holy moly, these babies have more stick than any other sticky bra I've ever tried, and I just love how they are breathable so you don't sweat as bad in them. Bra runs small so make sure to go up one size.

Dress runs tts, and for sizing reference, I'm wearing a small. 

This boho maxi is another Amazon fashion winner! I love the gray color with the hot pink embroidery, but it's also gorgeous in the other two colors as well. Runs tts and I'm wearing it in the small/medium.

All of these precious little girls dresses are under $15 and they all run tts. I bought Taylor a size 6 in all of them, and after washing / drying, they fit her perfect. 

A-Line Lace Dress // Earrings // Sandals (on sale)

Loving Lately

Good morning, friends! I've been trying hard to get back into a routine writing on the blog, but summer is keeping me busy. That being said, posting a few times a week may have to be my new goal.

And really, it's not summer keeping me busy, it's these three :) 

This was Taylor trying to teach Rocky how to put his head under and swim...haha! 

But anyway, while browsing online recently I've spotted so many cute things! So, I thought I would share them with y'all. And it's kind of a hodge podge of stuff that I have been bookmarking, so I apologize for being all over the place! 

I cannot get over how gorgeous these colors are together, and I just love this floral pattern. 

I just ordered this dress for the 4th of July, and right now, it's 40% off!! 

Y'all know I love a good high waisted bikini. The colors and the print on this one are fabulous, plus, you can't beat the 55% off price tag! 

I have the thicker version of these sandals, but I'm really loving the thinner logo and strap on these. Not to mention, they were just marked 50% off and they are now under $40! 

This is such a fun cover-up for summer. I think it would look super cute with a pair of white skinny jeans. 

Obsessed with these tiny (stackable), personalized gold and rose gold plated rings. 
This rug is absolutely stunning, has amazing reviews, and an even more amazing price tag! 

I stalked this dress earlier while waiting for it to go on sale and I thought it had sold out, but I found it yesterday fully stocked and 60% off! Plus, it also comes in white! 

I just love the ruffle sleeves and the tiny white embroidery on this blouse. Added bonus, it's 40% off right now! 

Double Stalk Banana Artificial

I've been searching for a realistic banana leaf tree for our dining room and I'm pretty sure I just found what I'm looking for! I'm also going to order this pretty large seagrass basket to put it in. 

I cannot believe this is 75% off and still in stock! The reviews are great and it was just marked down, so I'm sure it won't last long.

5 on Friday

ONE // 
I headed out with a few of my favorites for a girls night out this past Wednesday. We ate at the new restaurant on King called 'Parcel 32'. The inside decor was stunning and the food was delicious. We ordered pretty much every single thing off the small plate section. My two favorites were the pecan cornmeal hushpuppies and the smoked gouda mac and cheese!! 

What I wore

Dress runs tts, and for reference, I'm wearing the small. 

TWO // 

Todd and I had this little guy all to ourselves earlier this week, and while we missed our Tay-bean, it was so nice to spend some quality time with just Carson. Taylor was at my parents having some girl time with Mimi and her cousin Cayden. 

We went to the movies to see The Avengers!! It was so good, but it was long and the ending left you hanging. There's a sequel coming out next summer to pick up where it left off! 

On Wednesday morning, Carson and I enjoyed an early morning bike ride around the island. He is now obsessed with Big League Chew, so we biked to the local gas station to pick up a few packs. 

Decorations for the 4th of July!! 

We are so excited that we will finally be in town this year to enjoy all the fun activities!!


I stopped in Whole Foods this week for a few things and I couldn't resist grabbing these gorgeous peonies. They get me every time with their amazing flower selection. 

And speaking of amazing, this pimento cheese may just be the best I have ever tasted! It's full of flavor and only has a little bit of spice. I definitely recommend grabbing some if you're ever in Whole Foods! I'm pretty sure I've seen it in Target before as well. 

FOUR // 

I recently ordered this lavender soap/shampoo for the kids and we loved it so much I ended up ordering it the coconut twist and the orange squeeze scents as well. The ingredients are all pure essential oils and plant works so well on Taylor and Carson's hair. 

FIVE // 

And last, here are a few of my recent outfits with size and fit info. 

Dress runs tts, and for reference, I'm wearing the xs regular. 

Dress runs super big so make sure you size way down! I'm wearing the xs petite, but sending it back for the xxs petite.
