Our mornings are about to get a little bit busier when school starts next week. Hamp will start 3K and Sophie will start 2K. That means getting back on a schedule and not as much time in the mornings to get things done around the house. One of the first things I tend to cut out when we are in a hurry and on the go is my breakfast. I make sure the kids are dressed and fed and backpacks and lunch boxes are full, but I normally throw on something easy and skip breakfast. I have already started stocking up on on-the-go breakfasts for the next couple of weeks because I am determined to take a little better care of myself this year.
I received a POPSUGAR Must Have box in exchange for an honest review.
I have received several POPSUGAR Must Have Boxes and I think this one is my favorite! It is the 5th anniversary of POPSUGAR and the box reflected their big birthday celebration! It also happens to be my birthday month, and it felt like they knew it and sent it to help me celebrate!
Last year, I really over bought for Sophie. I think it can be so easy to do with little girls, especially. I found so many mommy and me pieces that I just “had to have” and I ended up buying way too much. This year, i am determined to save more money and have created a capsule wardrobe for Sophie. She has a few things that she can still wear from last year that will be bonuses, but other than that, this (or similar to this) is what I am buying her. Well, throw in a couple of holiday outfits in there, too. 😉
Hey guys! Well, it’s official! Another year has come and gone. I turned twenty-nine, yesterday! The last year of my twenties, and I intend to make it a good one! I celebrated in my favorite new Free People dress! I have held out all spring and summer for this beauty and finally took the plunge and bought it! I’m so glad I did because it is absolutely beautiful. It does run a little big (I’m wearing an XS) so size down one size. It is so comfortable and great for weddings, church or – birthdays!
Happy Monday, friends! We are recovering from another busy weekend and I have officially torn our house apart trying to go through our house and purge! Does anyone else do that right before school starts? I feel like the fall and holiday seasons are going to be insanely busy this year and I am trying to get it all knocked out before then. For some, summer is coming to an end, but for those of us in the south, we still have two to three more months of summer weather. Summer fashion is so much fun! I love that you can wear frilly dresses, white, bright colors, tanks, shorts, skirts, hats, sandals and the list goes on. I have been really excited to share this post with some of my favorite summer fashion staples that I purchased this year! These are things I have worn many times and have absolutely loved!
Hey guys! Happy Friday!! So, it has been a while since I have written a Friday Favorites post, but I thought it would be fun to share some with you today! I know you guys are so tired of hearing about the #nsale and I promise you won’t for much longer because it is almost over. I feel equally happy and sad about that. Happy that my wallet won’t be tempted any longer, and sad that the deals with come to an end. Does anyone else feel the same way? Looking for a friend, here…
So, we will be doing a lot of celebrating this weekend because my nephew’s birthday party is this weekend and we will also be celebrating my birthday this weekend as a family! I am feeling very mixed emotions over my last year in my twenties, guys. It’s getting real up in here…real old. Oldie, but goodie, right? Okay, I’m done. On to the good stuff.
School starts in less than three weeks, so we have been testing out a few new recipes that will be great leftover to pack in the kid’s school lunches the next day! Last night, (you may have seen on my insta-stories) we tried a recipe from Down Home with the Neelys with a couple of minor changes! This quick and easy lemon pasta with chicken recipe was delicious! Our family is a big fan of any type of pasta. Best of all? It is so easy and quick to whip up and everyone is full and happy by the end of the night! This recipe made plenty for the four of us and we have enough leftovers for the entire family to enjoy for lunch today, as well. In other words, it is a major win for us!
Happy Monday, friends! Did you see my mommy and me fashion post last night on IG? Lately, I’ve had a thing for matching Sophie. It started one day when I realized we were wearing a similar outfit and got so many compliments on our “matching” clothes. I thought it was so funny because it was a complete accident. I saw how excited and special it made Sophie feel, so since then, I have enjoyed trying to find clothes that are similar so that we can match and take “pit-ures.” Sophie girl loves to take photos with me, now! It used to be a struggle, but now she cries if I am taking them of anything else without her. haha Ohhh the joys of being a mom blogger. I snagged this adorable skirt about a month ago when it was on super sale (I think it is still on sale)! I bought it for under $30! I also got this top on sale a while back, too! My MIL bought Sophie this adorable little skort from Khols that actually has another matching top, but we paired it with a white tank to match mine for church on Sunday. I loved it. Let’s just say we were feeling a little ruffly.
It’s hard to believe that it is already time to talk about going back to school! I can’t believe how fast the summer has flown by. We are excited about the new school year, but the feelings are very bittersweet. My Sophie girl will be going to 2K two days a week and Camp will be heading into 3K. I am excited about the extra time that it will allow me to get some work done during the week, but I always miss them when they are away. It was dogwood for Hampton last year, and I am praying big blessing for both of them this year. I can’t wait to watch them learn, grow and get so excited to show me what they made or colored every day! Those moments were so fun for us last year, and I can’t wait for Sophie to experience school for the first time.
