This was one of the shortest weekends EVER. Joe’s contract allows him to have an alternate work schedule, meaning he gets to take every other Friday off but sadly it was not this week. Then I worked on Saturday, which basically made our weekend feel like it was one day. Gah! Oh well, we just crammed as much family time in as we could.
Oh exercise. Don’t most of us have a love/hate relationship with the thing? Love the way it makes us feel, hate everything else about it. Well over the years my relationship with fitness has started to lean almost completely towards love with only a little bit of hate 😉
One of the best things about summer is the farmer’s market…and I am lucky to have quite a few here in Huntsville to choose from. On Saturday mornings there is a market in Madison, Lowe Mills and Providence, just to name a few. But for date night this past Thursday, Joe and I hit up the market at Greene Street downtown and we could not have loved it more!
So it’s like a million degrees down here and I am trying not to buy more summer clothes–trying to be creative with what I have! This tote that I got from my Popsugar Must Have box has been just the item I needed to add a little something something to all my summer basics. My awesome sister got this box for me for my birthday and I have really been loving it!
If you follow me on Instagram you know we spent my 30th birthday in New Orleans and it was just the best! This was our first family vacation that wasn’t to visit family and I am so please with how it went. My husband and I went to New Orleans when we were dating (true story, it was a disaster and we almost broke up!) and I have been wanting a do over ever since so Joe planned this little surprise trip a while back!
We are heading into the holiday weekend friends! For me the 4th has always felt like halfway point of summer and I just cannot believe we are already there! So now that we’re here, let’t talk about what to wear!
These earrings really are a no-brainer at $24 and this pom pom hat is speaking my name…I have a birthday reward to spend and I am thinking of pulling the trigger on this one. Tassels, pom poms and now bows! This blue bow front top is an extra 50% off and is so stinking cute. I would pair this white jeans and tan sandals for now and then over a striped tee when the temps cool. And we cannot forget the littles…can’t you just see Louis and Judy in this star tee and too sweet popsicle dress?!
I love me a nautical look….I can’t help it. I am pretty sure I have three pairs of pants of just like these. I like what I like!
This particular pair of pants was the result of stalking JCrew and waiting for a sale. Finally, I scored–and got these for around $30! Time and money well spent! Not sure if my husband would agree with that statement but let’s not digress.
Hope you all had a beautiful weekend! We really did…went by quickly as they always do, but we got a lot done and had a lot of fun too 🙂
We started Friday off by hitting up the pool after the gym…I love that we have a pool in the neighborhood which means I get to enjoy it but don’t have to maintain it lol
Most of you are probably familiar with SheIn, CupShe, AliExpress, ChicWish and other trendy retailers that ship directly from China. These sites are all awesome and I actually blogged about Ali last year –love being able to avoid the middle man and just buy the cute clothes straight from the source.
Oh Louis. You have been in a rush since the day you were born (3.5 weeks early!)…you are the most articulate, spirited, sweet and crazy four year old I have ever known and I am so grateful to be your mama!
This past weekend (his birthday is actually June 6) was all about celebrating this special boy and while I didn’t manage to get many pictures (Doh!) you can believe, this was a weekend full of love and fun!
