Thoughts On Tuesday

 // I am officially back into working out and feel like I have a pretty good schedule going on now that Reese is in MMO 3 days a week! And you guys have been so sweet on Instagram letting me know you can tell that I've lost some weight, and a lot of you asked what I've been doing. But let me first say that I still have a ways to go, like 15 more pounds actually. But I am excited that I've been able to get off 9 pounds at this point. And seriously the only thing diet wise that I have been doing is cutting my portion size down, giving up my beloved coke, and not eating anything after 8pm. And workout wise I have been taking barre twice a week, cycle once a week, and some sort of HITT workout every other week. 

Here is my current favorite built in bra workout top and leggings

// This is the cutest Boho Mexican dress ever! And it comes in 31 colors and is only $34!! And I am really liking these two darker colors for fall! 

// I am planning on making this Chicken Alfredo bake tomorrow night for dinner! Carson is a huge fan of Chicken Alfredo and this one looks pretty easy and delicious! 

// I just ordered Reese this adorable knit romper for fall!! I think it's going to look so cute with little tights and a cardigan, or even a shirt underneath and knee high socks! 

Okay, that's about all I've got for you guys today, but I am hoping to back this week with a recap of our trip to St Simons along with some cute halloween outfits, and per yall's request my favorite transition fall pieces!

Five On Friday

ONE //  

Todd and I are heading out today to spend the weekend at Hotel Simone in St Simons!! To say that I am excited would be a huge understatement! I can not remember the last time that Todd and I spent a weekend out of town without the kiddos, but it's been a LONG time! And I'll make sure to takes lots of pictures and share all the details of everything when we get back!! 

TWO // 

These beach pictures are from a few weeks ago, but man we had the best time!! We ended up going to a spot on Sullivan's Island where when the tide goes out it makes a little island you can swim too! And so we all made the swim across and ended up finding about 30 sand dollars! It was so fun and Reese thought holding them was the coolest thing ever!! 


This little guy is ready for halloween!! I always like to get our pups a new collar for the season, plus the kids always get so excited about it too!! Reese keeps trying to say pumpkins, and it's the cutest thing ever!! I found his collar here on amazon, and this company seriously makes the best quality collars that are super affordable! 

FOUR // 

Earlier this week I made this ultimate crack chicken chili, and all I have to say is once you make this, I can promise it will a rotating staple in your house!! Everyone including Carson (who is my picky one) devoured it and coming back for seconds!!! It's seriously that good you guys!! 

FIVE // 

Last, it is officially sweater weather... haha I am just kidding! But is actually is first thing in the morning here, but it's still climbing into the 80's by mid day! But I did recently order a few that I am loving, so I wanted to share them with you! 

Can't get enough of this $13 sweatshirt And for sizing reference it runs big, so size down! I am wearing it in the xs! 

These next 3 sweaters just came in last night, and they are by tried and true favorite amazon brands! Also, I am planning to do a little try-on on my stories in a little while, so be on the lookout for details on the fit and sizing! 

Runs tts, I have it in the size small, and it's only $30 and comes in tons of other colors as well! 

Runs big ordered in the xs, and still have plenty of room! Also, it comes in 13 other colors!!! 

Amazon Essentials Soft Touch Crew Neck Sweater 

Runs tts, I have it in a size small! It comes in 21 colors, and is only $28!!!

Halloween Decor Favorites

I often hear moms on Instagram and in person saying that don't like Halloween! And don't get me wrong, Christmas definitely trumps Halloween forsure, but I do love this holiday, especially enjoying it through my kids eyes! So we like to go all out when it comes to decorations and all the other stuff that comes along with this holiday! So today I thought it would be fun to share some of the decorations we currently own, and some I would like to add to our collection this year! And next week I will share all of my favorite costumes with you guys! 

Mercury Glass Pumpkins 

How pretty are these mercury glass pumpkins!??! They would look beautiful in your kitchen or dining room, and they are perfect for Halloween and Thanksgiving! 

Deluxe Animated Brewing Witch Duo 

They switched up our witches a little this year and now instead of three they come with two. And honestly this probably makes works better because they take up less room on your porch! But this has been my kids and the neighborhoods kids favorite for years now!! 

Flame Lighted Pumpkins 

We have all three of these pumpkins and they look almost like real during the day, and then so cool at night all glowing and flickering going up our porch! 

3D 60 PCS Wall Spiders 

A few years back I bought a similar set to these and I loved them so much, but last year was definitely there last year! So I just ordered these, and I mean you can not beat this set for $10!!!

Happy Halloween Witch Wreath 

We have a fun wreath that is similar to this one, but unfortunately it's sold out. But this one is way more affordable, has a perfect 5 Star review, and I love the little hanging legs and hat at the top! 

Trick-Or-Treat Buckets 

Are these not the most adorable treat buckets ever!?!? I just placed an order for Taylor and Reese! I feel like Carson would rather just take his basic bag that I grabbed him at Target last year... makes me so sad that he's almost out of the age of dressing up and trick-or-treating :( 

Halloween Pillow Covers 

Okay, so normally I would just go with something like these buffalo plaid ones, but since our kids are all still into Halloween I decided to go with these fun ones this year! And I use them outdoor on our rocking chairs and I just spray them down with this outdoor spray to protect them!

Seven On Monday

Hello friends and happy happy Monday!! It's currently cloudy and rainy here, and it's making me want to stay in my pjs and skip the gym! 

Anyways, it's been a while since I've shared my seven on Monday with you guys, and I've got some good things that I've been eyeing! 

 3 Piece Silky Pajama Set 

I actually ordered this set over the weekend, and I am so excited about them arriving today!! The reviews are amazing, and you can not beat the $29 price tag! 

How cute are these mules! I loved all of mine so much last year, so I am so happy they are still in style for this fall and winter! 

Okay, if you've been looking for a good fall candle that won't break the bank, then look no further! I burnt this candle all weekend in our kitchen, and it had our entire house smelling amazing!! 

I have feeling I may have to grab this adorable cardigan in a few colors! It looks so comfy, and I am loving the details on the bottom!  

I still have about 10 pounds to go before I hit my ideal weight, but I've been dying to get a pair of bootcut jeans! I found these online for under $30! And for sizing reference I bought them in the size 4 with the 30 inch inseam!

 I always love decorating for fall, and switching out our doormat! And I thought this one was SO cute, and the price is awesome! 

Personalized Daycare Name Tags 

I ordered these for Reese for MMO, and y'all they are so cute, and they seem like they are going to hold up very well in the dishwasher!

Good Look for Less Workout Attire

I am so happy that classes and childcare have opened back up at our gym!  I made it to three different classes last week and they were all awesome!  I did the barre class, a HITT workout, and a cycle class! 

After nursing for over a year along with my body changing in general after baby number three, I've had to order a few new tops and they all have a built in bra, which I love!  The first three will be arriving by Friday so I'll be sure to share on stories how they fit.  I also love the other pieces I own and they all remind me of Lululemon, but only for a fraction of the price! 

CRZ Naked Built-In Bra Tank

I am probably the most excited about this tank and if the material is anything like the naked yoga pants I have linked below, I know I'll be getting it in more colors!! 

Core 10 Nearly Naked Yoga Pants

These are the most comfortable leggings you will ever put on.  They are so soft and you feel like you are barely wearing anything!  I love these for barre and yoga, or just for wearing on days when I'm not working out ;) 

Running Girl Yoga Tank with Built-In Bra

The built-in bra and the adorable back is what sold me on this tank!  That, along with the fact that it's only $21 and has amazing reviews!!! 

CRZ Yoga Seamless Built-In Bra Tank

This tank reminds me of my favorite built-in bra racer back tank , but this one has thinner straps and comes in a lot more colors! 

Long Sleeve Lightweight Yoga Top

I am always cold when I first walk into the gym and I love having a long sleeve top to toss on over my built-in bra tanks.  This one has great reviews and will arrive on Saturday.  And how adorable is the back!? 

No-Show No-Slip Socks

Technically, this isn't workout attire, but these are my favorite socks to wear when I workout.  They are the best and I love that they don't slip.

Back In The Grind

I feel like I'm finally getting back in the grind of working out, and like it's always been, the more I work out the healthier I eat.  As you all know, eating healthy and planning meals takes time so as a busy mom of three, I've never been so happy and thankful to have my Walmart+ membership!  Not only does my Walmart+ membership provide me with free same day delivery ($35 minimum. Restrictions apply).but their produce section is amazing and always super fresh.  Not to mention, I am able to buy almost everything we love organic at Walmart's everyday low prices! 

And I was able to purchase my above order last week in about 15 minutes from my Walmart+ app  while Reese was napping in the car! Talk about a lifesaver and stress reducer not having to wake a baby up to go into the grocery store! I kid you not I am pretty sure I have some form of ptsd from having to do this with Taylor when she was a baby. She would scream the entire time, and I would end up forgetting half the things on my list. 

And if you guys have never tried Kodiak Cakes frozen chocolate chip flapjacks, then do yourself a favor and order these now! And Walmart+ also carries a huge selection of their waffles and oatmeal which I also love!  

As you can see, we all enjoy all their fresh fruit Walmart+!  As for Reese, blueberries and oranges are her new favorites! 

Thank you Walmart for partnering on this post. 

Also, you can get my cropped pullover here, it's so cute and come in lots of different colors!
