  I met Amy the other week and a fun event here in The Woodlands and this dress caught my eye!  Such beautiful color.

If you would like to purchase this dress you can contact Amy via e mail at amylynn028@gmail.com.  Also join her facebook group for more fun arrivals and to schedule a shopping event at your home!   And follow her instagram for more info!  I am so glad to have met Amy!  She was so helpful and easy to work with.  This dress comes in a few other colors as well and I even saw one that was a coral color that I loved.   It can be worn as a one shoulder or off the shoulder dress….both ways are absolutely adorable.  Fabric is so soft and has a great weight to it, what I’m trying to say is that it will make you want to twirl around lol.  It is such a fun dress!

So on a personal note,  I have been dealing with an allergy to shellfish all week.  Not glamorous at all lol.  A couple of doctors visits and I think I’m good to go!  I have never had a food allergy before so it’s been a weird week.  We also had VBS this week and it was a blast watching the kids learn and play.  I was in the puppets group and had an absolute blast getting to use my puppet skills 😉  Lets just say that Mike the camel was all kinds of amazing and when are these puppet academy awards?? 🙂 j/k  Have a great weekend everyone!

Here are some of my favorite pics from my favorite stores!  Nordstrom has so much cute stuff right now!  One of my favorite things there is still THIS one and its on sale for $30!

So the Madewell jeans… I loved the fit so much of this pair of jeans and I’m picky about my jeans….especially the wash.  My last pair of distressed demin was from 7forallmankind and I wore them out and ordered another pair on e bay the next year. They have ti be just the right wash and just the right distressing.  I loved this pair and may grab them when the go on sale but I ordered the exact same jean in a darker color with a raw hem HERE.  The color is so yummy and the back pockets are big (which I always love.)  I have to hand it to you Madewell…nicely done!  This shirt is a printed version of the courier top.  The fit is cute and a little retro!  Im wearing a small in the top and a 27 in the jeans.

Add a pop of summer color or texture with these cute bags.  These are my favorite of the season and go with my favorite color palette.

I’m thinking about doing a blog post at the end of this week about my experience so far as a lifestyle blogger.  It has felt like a natural transition but has had its challenges.   I have loved it so far and am excited for the future!  Have you thought of becoming a blogger or do you like to follow bloggers?  Let me know in the comments!  I would love some feedback on what kinds of things you would like to see from me both personally and style wise!

Have a wonderful start to your week!

This weekend was such a fun birthday weekend!  I had a fun dinner with friends, a date night movie, cake and candles with my kiddos, and shopping with my mom.  I am a very happy Birthday girl!  My parents came to town from Austin and I was so glad to get to spend some time with my mom.  We were able to get away, just us for a bit.  She is the best shopping partner ever and we always have a blast browsing around.   Market Street is an outdoor shopping center here in The Woodlands and they have so many great stores, a movie theater, restaurants (my fav, True Food Kitchen,) and even live music on most weekends.  If you are ever in the area, check it out!

As a red head, I usually stay away from pinks.  I feel like they clash with my hair!  But this corally peachy pink I love.  I saw the top and shorts on a rack next to each other and loved the color combo.  These shorts are SO very pretty in person.  There are a structured linen with the slightest subtle shine.  Not too shiny or anything, but just enough to catch your eye 😉  And the back of this top is adjustable!

Today is actually my birthday!  I feel like birthdays are a good time realize your blessings, and today I am doing just that.  At 33 I am blessed with 2 beautiful babies, a husband who supports my every dream, amazing friends, a wonderful church family, and the realization of a dream of mine which is designing our new home.  I don’t think I thank God enough for all of these amazing gifts!

It’s also a good time to take an inventory of your life goals. I try to do something every single day that gets me closer to my professional, spiritual, physical, and life goals.

I have a feeling 33 is going to be pretty amazing!
