With very few exceptions, I'm done shopping for winter clothes after December. And let's call a spade a spade - January 1 to Easter is just a black hole of waiting on the warmer weather to appear, which is plenty of time to stock your spring and summer wardrobe. I wanted to let you in … Continue reading What I’m Thrifting: Spring 2018
I think one of the reasons I love Christmas is that the entire month is a party. Ya girl loves a party. Ya girl also loves getting dressed up for a party (or for a Tuesday, but that's neither here nor there). Ready to see some THRIFTED outfit and party looks that will get you through … Continue reading FIVE Looks For Any & Every Holiday Event
Swimsuit season is right around the corner! While I am working hard to lose this baby weight with diet and exercise, the idea of walking around with no clothes on anywhere outside of my bedroom sounds like zero fun. (This second-time-around baby weight is stubborn! Anyone else experience that too?) I was trying on my swimwear the … Continue reading Shopping Swimwear Out Loud
After having a baby, there is nothing I hate more than pulling on maternity clothes. This picture was taken before church two Sundays ago... I managed a non-maternity tunic top with below-the-belly maternity pants. It took some time to find what fit and I have to constantly remind myself not to get frustrated. I know, I know... "It took nine … Continue reading Trending: Postpartum
Someone recently said "I feel like I'm waiting for something that isn't going to happen." Sheesh. You and me both, sister. It's hard to believe that in 4 more days (if not sooner), we will have another person in our family. In all of my free time, I managed to overestimate my Walmart grocery pick-up and … Continue reading Muffins, Outfits, and The Wait.
This past weekend was great... Between the snow, family time, church, and a few little projects I was a happy girl. (Mac really likes the idea of the white stuff, but isn't so keen on the reality. I think he gets it from me.) The sewing bug has hit! Things have slowed down now that … Continue reading Weekend Recap!
I took Mac to spend some time with my parents in North Carolina last week. It was an un-rushed, relaxed trip with very little on the to-do list - my favorite kind of time with them. I love watching them enjoy their grandson. Trips to NC always include shopping (and loads of coffee!) I haven't posted … Continue reading Charlotte Thrift Haul
I am not one of those people who can get away with regular clothes disguised as maternity wear. I say this with all sincerity..."that must be so nice". Not this girl. My hips and booty start speaking Kardashian the minute I see two blue lines. The best is when people try to put a positive spin on this aspect … Continue reading Maternity Outfit Ideas for the Transition to Fall
It's been awhile since I took the time look through things other than housewares at a thrift store. Partly because we need "house things", but also because normal clothes won't fit/aren't fitting this bump for much longer. However, Mac and I had some time to kill before lunch Friday so we poked around most of Goodwill. Take a … Continue reading Thrift Haul!
What. A. Whirlwind. The last ten days have been madness! Andrew, Mac, and I headed to Destin for a (very quick) pre-move beach trip. We spent time with Andrew's parents, celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary at Marina Café with an amazing meal and view, loved on the dads for Father's Day, and got some sand between our toes. While it … Continue reading Update: We are moved!
