7 on Monday

Happy Monday, friends!! Today is the first official day of the Shopbop Sale so I thought it fitting that my seven on Monday be my top seven pieces from the sale! And just so you know, most pieces are under $100 and that's before the discount!! Don't forget to use the code STYLE at checkout :) 

Z Supply Abigail Dress

I love the fit and the length of this dress so much. And how cute would it be paired with these Golden Goose dupes?!?!

I was so excited to see this set as part of the sale. I have seen it on a few of my blogger friends in the yellow and it looks amazing on! 

Free People can do no wrong and I am in love with this new tee they just released. 

How stunning is this dress!?!? It would be perfect for holiday parties and any engagement parties as well. 

Loving the colors on this sweater, and I think it could totally be dressed up with black pants and heels or dressed down with the jeans below and cute sneakers. 

This brand is by far my FAVORITE pair of jeans and I love that they're a little more cropped than the other pair by this brand that I own. 

These are the cutest sneakers and the price point even before the sale is so good!!

BLT Chicken Salad Recipe

 TGIF, friends! I am so excited the weekend is almost here!! Todd and I are going to be working on painting the deck again, but I'm happy to report that we're almost halfway through and it's looking so good! 

Speaking of so good, this blt chicken salad is going to knock your socks off! And the best part is that it stays fresh for a few days in your fridge so it's perfect for leftovers. I am somewhat embarrassed to admit it, but I just had an entire bowl full for breakfast :) 

And you can always use croissants like they did in the original recipe, but if you're looking for a healthier option these smart carb pockets are so good. I found them at Publix, but I'm pretty sure that most grocery stores sell them. 

BLT Chicken Salad - Recipe Via Simple Joy


  • 3 cups cooked chicken chopped (see notes in the post for how to cook shredded chicken)
  • 1 pound bacon diced and cooked until crisp
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes cut in half
  • 1/2 small red onion diced small
  • 2 stalks celery diced
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (I used light)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


  • In a large bowl combine the cooked chicken, bacon, tomatoes, red onion, and celery.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper. Taste and add more salt and pepper to taste being careful to start out with just a little.
  • Stir the dressing into the main ingredients.
  • Serve right away or store in an airtight container for 3 to 5 days. Please note that if this salad sits out for more than 2 hours, the leftovers should be thrown away.

August Amazon Purchases

I have already burned this entire candle and just re-ordered it. It smells like the most delicious apple pie ever, and it's one that fills your entire house with the scent. 

This was a definite keeper in the Amazon dress department. It is very soft, the length is perfect, and it has pockets!! 

We went ahead and ordered this for Halloween before they all sell out. I've got to say, the quality is really really good. 

Taylor is still really into making her bracelets and she found this cool lava bracelet kit about a month ago. She has been making the prettiest bracelets with it. 

I ordered this for the girls bathroom because their old one broke, and the pink glass mixed with the gold is so pretty. Plus, it's easy to pump so it's also very functional. 

I ordered this to hold all of Taylor's bracelets and it's so pretty...I kind of want one myself.

I am so obsessed with these dresses that I wear one at least two times a week. This one doesn't have the built in bra, but I loved the fir so much that I don't mind tossing on a sports bra with it. 

Order this blanket now and make sure you get one for everyone on your Christmas list as well. It's the best Barefoot Dreams dupe and it's only $15.99!!!! 

I ordered this for our babysitter who was going off the college and I could not believe how good the quality was when it arrived. This would also make a great gift with the blanket above in it. Oh yeah, and it comes in several more colors and prints. 

I actually ordered two sets of these and just used the geometric ones in our four rocking chairs, and I love them. 

This stuff is the holy grail when it comes to a detangler, plus, it makes your kids hair smell SO SO good! 

Prettiest wine glasses ever and the price is so good!

Fall Neutrals

 If you thought Walmart was killing it with their spring fashion, then their fall fashion is going to blow you away!! There are so many fun chunky knits, cardigans, casual pullovers, sweatshirts, and gorgeous blouses. They also nailed it with the colors and the structure of their sweaters and tops. 

They have all the best and trendy jeans from the popular flare, bootcut, cropped flare, straight leg, and still probably my favorite the high-waist skinny jeans. Oh, and the boots this year, let's just say I happily found two pair that I probably won't take off all fall and winter. They're not only super comfortable, but they look designer without the designer price tag. 

And as soon as this sweater arrived I knew I had to pair it with these skinny jeans that I immediately fell in love with. I had a hard time deciding between these over knee or these killer slouch boots, but in the end, I stepped outside of my comfort zone and went with the over the knee...the taller heel and rich brown color were just speaking to me.

And below is a tiny sneak peek of some of my favorite neutrals right now at Walmart. I am seriously loving every single piece in this collage and actually I just snagged the bag, the booties, and both cardigans! 

Thank you Walmart for Partnering on this post

I am SO ready for sweater weather and I already have these three in my cart!!

Cream Cheese Chicken Chili + New Walmart Grocery Favorites

 As a busy mom of three, I'm always trying to find ways to save money on groceries while still being able to make home cooked meals. I also like to allow the kids along with Todd and I the opportunity to try out the new trending items. Well, this is where Walmart comes in and saves the day.

 Most of you probably know by now that I am a huge fan of so many Great Value items. And with their everyday low prices, I'm able to keep our freezer and pantry stocked at all times. The best part about all of this is by using Walmart's online grocery service I am able to save so much time because Walmart's personal shoppers do all the hard work for me. And just so you know, new customers can use promo code TRIPLE10 to save $10 off their first three pickup or delivery orders. $50 min. Restrictions and fees apply. 

So today, I am happy to share one of my favorite crockpot soups ever, and y'all, this is one that everyone in your family is going to LOVE...even baby Reese wanted seconds....ha!

  I also wanted to mention that I was able to order everything I needed (including my new crockpot)  using Walmart online grocery service and it was all delivered straight to my doorstep.

Cream Cheese Chicken Chili via Key To My Lime

And because I know you all love new food finds as much as I do, I wanted to share a few new household favorites from Walmart!! All of our kids love the mountain trail mix and chewy granola bars and they're great for lunchboxes. The Marketside flatbreads are all delicious, but these three are our favorites, especially the chicken bacon ranch! And make sure the new Dreamworld Coca-Cola and Hot Ones Barbacoa Chicken Bites make the cut on your next order!

Amazon Top 10 Sellers

 If you all follow me on Instagram, then you know I always try and share the weeks top five Amazon sellers on Sunday's!! So I thought it would be fun to go through the last two months of my top sellers and give the top 10 a permanent place on here. 

Amazon Essentials Crewneck Smocked Cuff T-Shirt

The material and the fit of this one are so good. It's perfect to wear alone or for layering.

Babydoll Mini Swing Dress

This is a staple that everyone needs in their closet. I have it in several colors and prints, and I always get compliments anytime I wear it. 

Two Piece Lounge Set

Cutest lounge set you will ever purchase. The material is so nice and the fit is perfect. 

Boho Loose Casual Dress

I didn't expect to love this one near as much as I did, but it is beautiful on. It also comes in four more colors and has the cutest pockets. 

Embroidery Lose V-Neck Ruffle Shift Dress

This dress needs no description, if you don't have it you need it!  

Everyone needs this workout dress in their life, it's the BEST!!! 

This Lululemon dupe is probably one of the best I've ever seen. I 've also washed and dried it three or four times and it still looks brand new. 

This dress looks like it cost ten times the actual price tag, and it is so gorgeous on!!! For sizing reference, I have it in the xs, but if you are taller I would go up one size.

Women's Puff Sleeve Top

I have this in white and I can't tell you how much I love it. It also washes and dries well. 

Long Maxi Dress

This dress is stunning and would go perfectly into fall with a cute jean jacket and booties.
