This and That

 Hello friends and happy Tuesday!! 

I hope you all had a wonderful Memorial Day yesterday.  We actually stayed busy finishing up our DIY patio makeover, and I shouldn't say finished because we still have one chair to fix and paint along with painting the two side tables. 

I always forget what a pain in the ass it is to sand and paint, but I can already tell it's going to be so worth it!  And when it's all finished (by tomorrow hopefullly), I'll be sure to share all the tools and paint that we used, but in the meantime, I am excited to share the new pillows and umbrella that I decided on. I think Todd is very excited that I'm bringing some blue into our lives...haha!! 





// Summer break officially starts for our kids tomorrow and these chore charts are on the way!  We did this last year and I ended up slacking off with it, but not this year!  Carson and Taylor are both old enough to have several daily chores, and if they don't get them done this summer, I've already let them know that they will lose their phones.

I went ahead and got this one with the 3 charts so Reese can feel like she's a part of it too.  She already helps me water the plants and give Bandit food, so I'm hoping this will be good for her as well!

ONE

Make this recipe asap!  It was a huge hit in our house and we had leftovers that fed all five of us again the next night!  I served ours with chicken rice (out of the box) and butter beans. 

French Onion Smothered Chicken



TWO

Two weekends ago we celebrated Taylor turning the big TEN!!!!!  I still cannot believe that our girl is in the double digits, but she had the best time bouncing her frog-loving heart out with a lot of her friends at SkyZone! 


Todd and I both jumped with all the kiddos and I didn't get many pictures so this was pretty much it!  Either way, I promise you that everyone had a blast :)  And you can find all of her frog party stuff and frog cake toppers here.  I ordered it all off Amazon and everything arrived within two days. 



Love this girl so much!!!

I had a lot of questions about her birthday dress and her shoes so I wanted to let you know they're both from Target and linked above. 



THREE

If you have a hard time drinking water during the day then get this cup!!!  Since it arrived, I've been drinking SO much water!!  It keeps it cold all day and I love that it has a straw!!  

40 oz Mug Tumbler


FOUR

If you're looking for something cute to wear for Memorial Day then I've got you covered!!  Not only is the quality amazing, but they're all super affordable! 


For sizing reference, it runs tts and I'm wearing it in the small.

This and That

 Happy Tuesday! 

// First off, I wanted thank you all so much for all of the sweet messages and medication recommendations for my anxiety and depression!  At the same time, it was hard reading that all of you struggle like myself.  I'm realizing that it's much more common than we think, but it's not something that gets talked about enough. 

I've been on my new medication (Celexa) for almost a full week now, and I don't want to jinx anything, but I truly feel like a different person in the best way possible.  I have to say that no longer taking my sleep medication (I was taking Sonata nightly) has been a bit of a struggle, but I have slept much better the last two nights.  

I am hoping that it's just going to take my body a little time to adjust to not having the sleep medication, but I am hoping to see a huge difference by eating healthier and cutting out the amount of wine I drink pretty daily.  I know in the past this is what has always worked for me so I'm hoping to have the same outcome this time around as well. 


// There are so many amazing sales going on right now....

GAP has the cutest stuff for women, baby girls, and toddlers, and I haven't even checked out the boys stuff yet! But these are my favorites so far....






LOFT- is having 50% off all of their tops and accessories, and an additional 50% off of all sale items! And I am loving all the colors and prints for spring and summer!

Amazon Hit and Misses

 Good morning and happy Tuesday ladies!! I am back with some more really fun amazon fashions finds for you!! And I was thinking that we pretty much had all hits again, but I tried on two dresses that arrived last night and they were misses!!! I'll be back later today to update you with selfies and what they look like in person so you guys can make sure you skip these while amazon shopping! 

HITS 

Goodthreads Linen Blend Dress // Earrings // Wedges 

Y'all this is the cutest dress, and I am in love with the material and the hot pink color! As far as sizing goes it runs big so size down, for reference I am wearing it in the size xs.



Babydoll Tunic Top // High Waist Ripped Denim Shorts 

Earrings // Flat Sandal 

Get this top and these shorts asap... I've had these shorts for a year now, and they get softer and softer with every wash! I am wearing them in the medium, but the small would fit better at this point. When I was around 130 pounds the medium fit prefect though. And as far as sizing on the top goes, I would say it runs pretty tts, if not a little on the loose side, so if in-between sizes I would size down! 



Two Piece Crop Top High Waist Long Skirt //  Earrings //  Flat Sandal 

This may be the softest skirt ever, and I actually really like it with this one shoulder crop top, but I also think it's equally as cute with a white tank or tee, or as a coverup over your swimsuit! For sizing reference it runs tts and I am wearing it in the small. 

Ruffle A-Line Beach Maxi Dress // Earrings //  Flat Sandal 

I feel like this is going to be one of those dresses that I order in more than one color! It is so so soft, and it's such a flattering fit! For sizing reference it runs tts and I am wearing it in the small. 



Cropped Wide-Leg Pants Set  // Earrings // Sandals 

This is such a cute set, and one that I feel could be worn to an actual office setting or out for fun! And for sizing reference I am wearing it in the xs, and I feel like it runs a little on the big side, so I would go down one size!


Knit Cover Dress Cover-Up // Cutout One Piece 

This cover-up is one that everyone needs in their life! It's a one size fits all, under $20, and comes in 8 other colors!! 

High Waist A-Line Flowy Dress // Earrings // Block Heel 

 The high waist is so flattering on this dress, and I love that you can wear it on the shoulder or off the shoulder. 

High Waist Wide Leg Jumpsuit // Earrings // Block Heel 

I seriously love a jumpsuit, and this one is even better in person than it is online. The material says rayon online, but I swear this jumpsuit feels and looks like linen on.  For sizing reference it runs tts and I am wearing it in the small. 


Flowy A-Line Maxi with Pockets  // Earrings // Flat Sandal

The neckline is so fun on this dress and wait until you see the cute back... and you can wear it with a regular bra too! For sizing reference it runs tts and I am wearing it in the small. 


Tie Strap Long Maxi Dress  // Earrings // Sandals 

You guys order this dress NOW, it is so good in person and the fabric is so nice!! For sizing reference it runs tts and I am wearing it in the small. 




This dress is going to blow you away with fit and quality! I have it in the short sleeve pink version (you can see it on here) and it has been one of my favorites since I purchased it last summer! Also, it runs big so size down, I am wearing in the xs. 



This is possibly the best swimsuit I have purchased from amazon yet! It is such a flattering cut, and the material is amazing! 




Short girls get this dress, it makes you look so tall, and the cutouts are not too much and are super flattering. For sizing reference it does run big so size down, I am wearing it in the small. 



This is another one with great bust support and it's made of good thick quality material! I will say it is a little cheeky so I would go up a size if you're between sizes. For sizing reference I am wearing it in the size small.



This scallop swimsuit is so NICE!! The fabric has is this small diamond print, and it's padded, and has adjustable straps. For sizing reference I am wearing it in the size small.



This coverup is a little sheer, but I love the length and the fun dot material! Plus you can not beat the price at $22!! For sizing reference I am wearing it in the size small.


MISSES 


While this dress isn't a big miss, it was for my height and my frame. And if you are taller and do order it, make sure you size down because it runs really big! 





The bottoms on this swimsuit are basically a thong, and the top fits funny and squashes your boobs. The skirt was the only cute things about it.

Mini Babydoll Tie Strap Dress 

This dress looks like a full on potato sack, plus it's super thin too! definitely a miss on this one!
