Summer Vacay!!!!!

Happy Happy Saturday lovelies!!! It has been pouring down rain for two days now, so obvi I’m wishing I was back in Florida on the beach! I thought I would share a few fun pics from our first family vacation as a family of five!! We typically always do a summer vacation with my family, but not this year, so we decided to still go somewhere! We spent 3 nights in the cutest little beach house in Seaside, FL! I wish I would have taken pics, but no time with my 3 crazies running around! We were lucky to get the few we got! haha! If you want to know more about where we stayed just send me an email and I’ll give you info! Our little house was like a quarter of a mile walk to the beach, so it wasn’t bad at all! The kids were in heaven! The water was soooo clear! We saw crabs and fish everywhere! I’m definitely a beach snob and 30A is somewhere I could go every year! I told JD that we are retiring there! I wish!!!

We spent 6 nights in Orlando! My grandparents have a home there, so we go quite a bit! It is super close to Disney!! I turned 30 while we were gone and I thought what better way to spend my birthday?! I’m Disney OBsessed, so we go to a park or two every time we visit!! We went to Animal Kingdom this time since were we just at Magic Kingdom in April! Bennett looooved all the animals! He was in heaven! The “It’s Tough to Be a Bug” 3d show freaked them out a little! Lib had seen it before, but she wasn’t even two!

More Must Haves!

Happy Sunday!!

I’m currently attempting to drink a HOT cup of coffee before all my munchkins wake up and the craziness begins!!

I’m looking at Nordstrom online and there are still some super cute items available!

4EB07FC4-A694-49AB-8CCA-E614F14033C7.jpeg

Loving these Nike tennies! I just got back in to running and am trying to decide on a new running shoes! These might be the winners!

Yestersay was our sweet Jamison’s first birthday!! It was a bittersweet day! My baby isn’t a baby anymore, which Libbey keeps reminding because he is one now and we can’t call him a baby anymore 😂, but the older he gets the happier he is because he can keep up with his brother and sister!! He loooooves walking! He chases Lib and Benny all over the house! He has two bottom teeth and a head full of crazy curly hair that I’m slightly obsessed with! He says quite a few words already, but his favorites are, mama, dada, dog, ball, papa, and moo!! He loves dogs, fruit, and nursing🙈 I stopped nursing Libbey at 13 months and Bennett right at a year! I’m thinking it might take him a little longer to wean… which I’m okay with 😉 Mr. Jamison has been quite the blessing! This past year has been full of ups and downs and hardships and we have lost a few loved ones and I could not have gotten through it without my sweet babies!!

Have a fabulous Sunday!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Wishlist

Hello!!! Life has been crazy lately!! One of these days I will blog weekly, but for now I’m going to focus on my sweet little family!! Having three so close together and a hubby that works nights makes it tough to get anything done, but I wouldn’t trade it for anything!! My sweet little man, Jamison will be one on Saturday😥 HOW is that possible???!! Last year I was literally at the hospital in labor and shopping online because the day he was more was the first day for public access for the sale! I’m hardcore 😂😂 I’ll do a family update post next week… maybe! Haha But…. I wouldn’t be a “blogger” if I didn’t talk about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!!

My little diva can dance her heart out! She loves it!! Bennett was dying to get on the stage and kept asking when it was his turn!! She still asks everyday if she has dance or school?!

We stay pretty busy by swimming, going on walks, and going to the park! We are heading to Colorado in a few weeks to see my sister!! We are very excited!!

Mother’s Day Fun

Hellooooooooo! Long time no talk🙈 You Guys….. I don’t know how full time working mamas do it??? I seriously give them so much praise because I’m home all day and struggle to  keep the house clean, the kids fed, and find time to just sit and play with them… I still have yet to find a good routine! I think once our house is finally put together and the baby isn’t nursing anymore, things might get a little less crazy… probably not😂

So, I hope all the mamas out there had a fabulous Mother’s Day!! My sweet kiddos gave me a cute card, powdered doughnuts, and a new diaper bag!!! JD has given me powdered doughnuts for Mother’s Day  since I was pregnant with Libbey! I craved them🙈 I’m in loooove with my new Freshly Picked Diaper bag!! I’ve wanted it for a few years now!! I took my kiddos to church and then had a cookout at my parents with my family!! We took a few selfies before mass! 😂 Lib’s poses kill me😂

B0C2200C-26F7-4B8E-BFF4-EBC4CA0CD6BA158AF45A-5DA2-4418-80A6-B0A6578299BBCD8BF056-8828-4B4F-B771-25F99605DA14

A04ACB31-B913-448A-89E8-72A6647387D2

I’m on a jumpsuit kick lately! They aren’t really nursing friendly, so I usually wear them when I’m not going to be gone long! The one I’m wearing above it’s on sale!!!! Lib has a matching one, but of course wouldn’t wear it when I wanted her too:( I link a few other cute jumpsuits below!!

27EFCCB4-C9E3-4837-9BDE-2078F3F9886E

How cute is this one?!

Once again for the hundredth time, I’ve gone MIA! I’m so thankful for those of you that stick around and still read my little blog! Life is like a roller coaster.. so many ups and downs and my goal is just to keep my sweet babies healthy and happy, so if I don’t wash my hair for a week or don’t blog for a few months… it’s all good! I lost my sweet Papaw suddenly a few weeks ago and it definitely made me stop and think about what’s really important in life.. I enjoy fashion and doing this blog, but my family comes first! Raising 3 little kiddos is no joke! It is definitely the hardest job, but so rewarding and I’m so blessed to be their mommy!!

My grandpa lived in Austin, TX and my family was in Florida at the time because we were in my best friend’s wedding! We stayed for the wedding and left for Austin a few days later! We had planned on going to Disney World for a few days and the beach, but plans suddenly changed:( We did get to take the kiddos to Magic Kingdom for a day and they got to stop in Destin for like an hour.. It was nice to spend a week in Texas with family though!! We were gone for 15 days and spent like 50 hours in the car.. my poor kiddos🙈 Jamison popped his front two bottom teeth while we were gone and Bennett had a super bad ear infection the night we got there… it was a stressful few weeks let me tell ya! The wedding was absolutely beautiful and Libbey thought she was the bride😂😂 I’ll start doing more fashion post soon!!

Thanks for reading!!

Ulta Haul!

16CB3138-A8E4-49BB-A541-06B70F44B14D

Hello!! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend! We had a busy weekend🙈 Lib and I had a little girls night out with some friends and went to see Beauty and the Beast! She loved it and clapped after every act! It was so stinkin cute! We went to a bridal shower and to see the Easter Bunny on Sunday…. ummm let’s just say I refuse to ever see the Easter Bunny again… Bennett has never been fan… he freaks out every.single.time, but I guess I don’t blame him, but I had to get Jamison’s first Easter Bunny pics! Haha I had to sit by the bunny because that’s the only way Bennett would be by him🙈

98E12375-1E87-4D9C-BF8F-917C09998EDE35872382-C378-4D72-8A6A-7FEFA5D3E0D1866F068C-7F63-496B-89F6-26171FB61EC1192F25A9-7329-4FEC-BB9D-76F8BE062048

So, before the Easter Bunny chaos, I made a mad dash in to Ulta to pick up a few things! My little family is heading to Florida next week because we are in a wedding! My sweet bestie since kindergarten is getting married!!! Our dresses are a beautiful vanilla color, so obviously I need a tan😳 I’ve heard great things about the St. Moriz instant self tanning mousse! I got the color “medium” and I really like it so far!! I’ll give you guys another update on it in a few weeks! I repurchased this IT Cosmetics “Superhero” mascara! I looooove this stuff!!! It is definitely worth the money!!!! I also love Tarte’s “Shape Tape” concealer! I just ran out and heard that Makeup Revolution’s “Conceal and Define” concealer was comparable, so I thought I would try it before repurchasing the Shape Tape! I bought the color “c10” and have only used it twice and am not quite sold on it yet… I’ll let ya guys know about this too in a few weeks! I picked up a few NYX lip pencils! They are buy one get one half off, so go get ya some!! I bought this plumping top coat and really like it! It is also on sale!! I’m OBSESSED with Bareminerals liquid matte lippies!! I just got “Smooch” and I have “Swag!” They are soooo long wearing and on sale as well! Let me know your faves and what I need to try!!

Sorry for the long post!!

Thanks for reading!

Helloooooo!!! So, no laundry room progress☹️, but we did get a few more things hung on the walls! Maybe I’ll show you guys a room next week! Libbey’s room is pretty much done besides window treatments! I keep saying I’m never moving again, but I know we will! Our house has no basement and I NEED a basement 🙈 Anyway… let’s talk about clothes!! I’m dying to wear spring clothes, but it is still freezing here, but that doesn’t stop me from shopping and outfit planning!! We don’t have snow on the ground, so I broke out my cutes slides again!! I’m also living in cardigans and tanks!! I’ll link a few of my faves below!

Decor Updates!

Hola! I’m currently blogging while I nurse my little bambino! It is seriously the only way I can get it done! Life with three kiddos four and under is no joke! Libbey told her “YaYa”(grandma) that our house is chaos😂 She is right!! I love my crazy chaos though!! She has become a really good helper lately!! Bennett tries to help too, but usually ends up making more of a mess! Speaking of messes… my hubby is working on a few projects in our laundry room! I think I mentioned that we bought a foreclosure this past fall, so we have lots of projects! I’ll share them as we make progress!

D4CBB7A2-0408-4B44-B7FC-C5F65EC154F47CB5869D-2B2C-46DA-B879-FDBBABF7E60E43B3E4A8-FB45-40BC-8BFD-902457FEF81AE3083711-4772-4C32-90B7-1F5B0B3D8029

I plan on sharing more once I have it organized! JD is going to build a shelf above too and we have a galvanized pole that he’s hanging above as well(hopefully today)!!!

I found a few pics on Pinterest for inspiration!! JD distressed and sanded the boards to give them the “worn” look! Hopefully I’m sharing more laundry room progress next week!

Thanks for reading!!
