Keeping it real... Easter is one of my favorite holidays due to the true meaning. It’s my least favorite holiday due to the Easter Bunny. We’ve never been big into gearing up for the bunny. Usually the baskets contain necessities for the upcoming season. One year they did get a trampoline but that was because they were getting one anyways. Here’s to the moms that got eggs at 5pm tonight for the kids to dye and we’re scraping together outfits from Christmas with a spring vibe.
Believe it or not, some days just call for a break. It’s our first 80 degree day since last summer and the kids are on Easter break so we’re just soaking it in. Many, including my family do t realize how much time goes into this whole blogging thing. I usually sit down at my desk by 9am and don’t move till 3pm then sit with my laptop in the evening while everyone watches TV. There’s definitely more than 8 hours a day spent on this gig and some days like today just call for a break. So here’s to finally reading the newest @msrachelhollis book and soaking in the sunshine while the kids ride their buggy’s and swim!
Today I got to get dressed in real clothes and head to a meeting with a non-profit I work with. It's nothing fancy, just a comfy pair of linen pants and a basic tee but I actually got asked if I was going somewhere special after the meeting since I was so dressed up. Umm, nope just back home then a dance run tonight and hoping the Easter Bunny can get her shit done. Apparently I need to up my appearance at the monthly meetings. lol So in love with the look and feel of these pants and they're under $25! @shopstylecollective @targetstyle
Sometimes when it’s a cloudy day and the sun is hiding, you need to be that ray of sunshine yourself. Yellow typically isn’t a color I go for but I’ve been loving it this spring. Now is the time to snag this dress, it’s on sale for $20! Full post on the blog sharing my favorite dresses on sale.
When you combine a great neutral to the perfect print it equals an awesome shoe! I was so happy to see these waiting for me when I got home today. If you’re ready to up your summer shoe game the @macys sale is where it’s at!
Some people go for the bagel seasoning, but I’m a sucker for the cheap flower bouquets. I’m still patiently waiting for the blowers to bloom so I’m the meantime I’ll keep making monthly trips to @traderjoes to help brighten up the kitchen. What’s your favorite flower? I snagged some beautiful daisies today.
There’s a slight chance I was still in my PJ’s when the kids got home from school today and I may have worn said PJ’s to school drop off since the kids missed the bus. I fell in love with this necklace on my last @target run and love the statement it gives a basic top!
Competition day... I’m not sure which days are longer, dance competitions or wrestling tournaments. The house had to divide and conquer today to get everyone where they needed to be. Girls headed to dance and the boys headed to race 4wheelers (and crash into trees 🙈) and the girls headed to dance. We’re whooped!
Once in a while you have those days that call for joggers... I'm saying I'm A-OK with me wearing joggers in two different grocery stores. Busy day out today spending time in front of the camera lens. Believe it or not, that is one of the hardest things for me on this journey is sharing pictures/videos of myself. Fortunately with a little wine and a funny friend behind the camera we got shit done!
