Friday Favorites: Spring Is In The Air

Hello! And a happy Friday to you! Today I'm THRILLED to share with you a few of my recent favorites. Most of them are "new to me", which is probably what's got me all giddy. From an item that brings on nostalgia for an era I never lived in, to a product that makes me feel like I'm walking through the heavenly gardens, I hope you'll enjoy as much I as do. And be sure to look for a 30% off coupon code for my fave new kitchen item!!!

Lucky Brand: Baggy Boyfriend Jeans For Spring

"Honey, do these boyfriend jeans look silly on me?" In a moment of fashion doubt, I asked my hubby what he thought of the baggy fit of my new jeans. He surprised me with a positive response. Why did I buy a pair of jeans that I wasn't 100% sure about?

GAP Finds For Spring/Summer 2019

Beeeeeeeeeeep! We interrupt the usual blog schedule for a "GAP finds" post because there is a 40% off sale going on all this week! We wouldn't want you to miss it!

And now back to our post.

Don't be deceived by the "baby" on the bag! Those clothes were for us! During our recent visit with Grandma and Grandpa, my mother-in-law and I went SHOPPING! After my 6 month "shop my closet" adventure this felt like she was taking me to Disney World. No Lie! We both love looking at home decor and shopping for clothes and as I've stated on the blog before: My MIL is one of my fashion inspirations! This lady knows her colors and she has an eye for DETAIL.

Before her visit, the boys and I had already scoped out GAP for my current closet "need". SHORTS! I loved the shorts, but they were full price. And so I waited, but I didn't have to wait long. The following week our shopping adventure began with those shorts! And wouldn't you know it? She loved them as much as I did AND there were on sale! We spent well over in hour scouring the racks, trying on our picks and even trading since we wear close to the same size!  Ok! Let's get to those clothes!

Simply Earth's Essential Oil Wellness Box For March!

Anxiety Away, Mood Lifting Diffuser Blends, Magnesium Sleep Spray...can you just feel the tension easing out of my shoulders as I type? Soft music plays and a smile tugs at the corners of my mouth. It's my 6th month with Simply Earth essential oils subscription boxes and I continue to be impressed with their creative recipe. In 6 months I gained a total of 24 bottles of EOs, 24 natural recipes and lots of memories with my boys. I bring roll-on bottles around from place to place and when I forget what oil does what, I simply refer back to my growing stack of cards.

16 Going On...Best Look From Your Teens

For today's fashion adventures I'm featuring a surprise top that came in the mail from a friend and linking up with the Blended Blog for "Best Look From Your Teens"! Like seriously, you're going to love it! Ok, in all honesty my teen years were riddled with fashion challenges. However, I've learned a fashion thing or two about teen fashion from sitting in the bleachers at football games.  I'd watch and be dazzled and amazed by some of the choices that ranged from grunge, sporty, minimal amounts of fabric and of course the trending high waisted jean. I'm happy to say that distressed was among the styles and who doesn't think high school with a top like this? The shirt's arrival is simply providential! Wink, wink!

And how appropriate that these pictures were taken at our local library! So today, I'll be sharing what I'm currently reading as well! Thank you for joining me!

Do You Believe In Luck? "Three Things" For March

Today's post reminds me that February snuck in and out of 2019, just like it does for every year at our house.  Currently seated at my local Panera, with planners, devices and paperwork, strewn about, I'm everything but focused. My eyes are drawn to every movement, ears drawn to each change in vocal timbre. Suffice it to say it's been a busy weekend - adventurous, but BUSY.

We went on a homeschool field trip, dragging my in laws along, followed by a full Saturday of downtown market shopping, a connect group picnic at the Ringling Museum and finally settling into meal time before I crashed. Of course I'll be sharing these adventures with you on the blog, but until then I'm joining up with Laura at the Horton Family Blog for her "Write With Me: 3 Series"!

Friday Favorites: Featuring The Sip & Mingle Blogger Event

So I did something. I drove about 3 hours to attend a conference hosted by Influencers I have never met or heard of!  It would also be my first blogging conference ever and I'm thrilled to share a recap  in lieu of my Friday Favorites.

How I Shop My Closet & The Sunday Showcase Turns 1!

Hello! And welcome to our twelfth Sunday Showcase link up with Ada, Kellyann and returning guest host, Shelbee! The Sunday Showcase is an opportunity to feature whatever you like; it's Sunday so let's be chill, right? Well, I'm happy to be closing out our year anniversary with tips I learned from an unplanned "shop my closet" adventure! This adventure lasted almost 6 months with the exception of a couple of tops, pieces sent to me for review and gifts from loved ones.   And I didn't come to this realization until I went hunting outfit hunting for a blogger event I attended this past weekend (more to come on that soon!).  Why and what did I learn from this adventure?  Read on for more...
