Fitting Room Snapshots!

Happy Sunday! I normally am not a fan of Sundays.. I mean, that means tomorrow is Monday and it’s back to work for a whole week of work.  #canibeastayathomedogmomyet #isweariwoulddomorethanwatchtvallday #anddrinkwine

This week, however, we are heading to Florida for my girlfriend’s wedding so it’s only half a work week.. that should be manageable right??

Random fact: I work 5 miles from the Mall of America.  Yes, I realize that is amazing and yes, you can visit me ASAP!  I don’t go over there too often but it’s nice to be able to just pop over there on a lunch break!

Another random fact that y’all are so interested in…? I love me some Nordstroms.. like ridiculously out of control love! I’m not sure when this love affair started but it’s going strong!



The only thing better would be if I could shop around with a glass of wine.. Oh wait- I can in my own home! #passmethebottle #imeanaglass  #dontjudge


Bear with me now… I’m not a big “selfie” taker- or am I?? I can take a mean selfie with someone else but not a mirror selfie so these aren’t the best quality but I loved some of these pieces and had to share! 🙂


Apparently I’m in a red and coral phase!

I loved this tank- it was so comfy and flattering with the slits on the side!

This romper…. let me tell you… so great! I’m usually anti-romper on myself because I feel like they look goofy on me but I thought i’d give this one a try.. Y’all… I loved it! It was comfy and easy to just throw on!  It would be so easy to style as well.. just add a statement necklace and some cute wedges and you’re set 🙂  I’m all about ease and comfort!


This dress…. was insane!  It might not be the fanciest but it was so comfy and could be so cute for 4th of July with a navy scarf and some rainbows?! I really loved this dress and it’s under $50 so that’s always a huge plus!  A few others I love are this dressthis dress and this one.

I feel like I should have picked up this dress for Easter this year.  The drop waist silhouette is very flattering and I love the neckline!


I shared this top as part of my “Friday Favorites” a few weeks ago! I ordered the Electric Pink but saw the Neon Pink in store and had to try it on! I own this shirt in 4 colors- I’m THAT obsessed, yes and love the price!! *I didn’t bring this one home but I love my new pink one 🙂

This dress is SO cute! I’m not sure it would work for me outside of the dressing room due to having to wear a strapless bar but I really loved it when I tried it on!  #bustygirlproblems

Clearly the only things I worry about when buying clothes- comfort and ease!  If I can look cute and be comfy – i’m sold! I know this is different than my traditional blogs so let me know if this is something you guys like to see or if I should stick to my life instead 🙂


Friday Favorites!

I apologize for my lack of blogging this week.. I realized that sometimes we live a pretty boring life – which I won’t complain about since we have weddings every single month basically until the end of the year- but it doesn’t make for good blogging.. I mean I know you want to hear all about how I finished my bottle glass of wine and watched my hubby play video games… Oh yeah and we’re almost done with the whole series of the Office. Of course I ate more queso and margaritas last weekend- so that’s pretty exciting! Maybe I should blog more about my love of queso and chips… I mean, I know I haven’t shared that enough! But I realized we need a more exciting life – which seems to be on the horizon in order to keep up with our lives on this deal! For now i’ll just continue to finish my Starbucks and share my Friday Favorites! #skinnyvanillalatteplease


The world was right again on Monday when Southern Charm came back to Bravo.  If you haven’t watched this show – turn on your On Demand immediately. I promise it will entertain you and you will fall in love! #youcanthankmelater #orjustsendwine


My very favorite is Cameran – she is just hilarious and a girl after my own heart. She seriously eats McDonalds and Wendys (all of you who hate fast food restaurants- I don’t want to hear it!). Shep and Craig are the southern “hearthrobs” and it’s just a ridiculous and fun show to watch! I’ll be back next week sharing the reasons I love Cameran and her famous one-liners. #hotmessexpress #peterpansyndrome


The Masters is going on this week… and it’s a big deal in our household! My hubby usually takes two days off of work just to stay home- drink beer and watch some golf.  This year he’s actually working those days and has to just listen to it every now and then throughout the day – but you better believe it’s on our tv from the moment he gets home from work until bedtime!  He even had it on at 7 am for the first tee time yesterday morinng! I used to be beyond annoyed- who wants to watch golf? It’s like watching grass grow…- but then I actually started paying more attention and knowing the players and I actually really enjoy it now! I’m rooting for Rickie but seeing as how he did yesterday, i’m thinking I need to change my thoughts!



Y’all I know this third one should be embarrassing to the max- but i’ll own it. I love the TV show Catfish on MTV.  Nev and Max are doing something right with this show.#pleaseletmeknowifyouneedanewbff #orsomeonetobeontheshow #literallyaskedmyhusbandifwecouldfakeitsowecouldmeetthem #hethinksimcrazy  

It’s probably all fake but I don’t care, please don’t let me know! My first roommate in college and I used to watch it and I have to say I still love it.  Although I really do wonder how in today’s day and age (isn’t that the saying???), people are still able to get Catfished? Honestly though- if you haven’t been able to video chat or meet a person after 4 years and they are “gorgeous”- you are ridiculous! You are obviously getting catfished.. entertaining show for sure but c’mon people!! Anyone else watch this show?


Do any of y’all have this Keurig Kold?  Apparently it can make Margaritas and other alcoholic drinks- just by adding the tequila! And you can have fountain soda on demand- coke please! Has anyone noticed that McDonald’s has the BEST fountain coke ever?? Anyways – Yes I know it’s easier to just go buy the premixed margaritas or a fountain drink but this just seems so much more fun! And i’d have to say i’d be excited every time 🙂

Keurig Kold

Speaking of drinks- I just stocked up on quite a few bottles of champagne for the Mimosa Bar i’m creating for Megan’s big day next Saturday for us girls getting ready. I am so excited to drink those.. #obsessed please tell me how I can figure out how to have those every morning instead of coffee… I think that would start my day of a lot better 🙂 Everything is better with champagne, right?


I know this was already a favorite of mine in the past… BUT it’s almost time for our trip finally so it has to be included on my favorites!  We are headed to Destin next week and I am just so excited!  Unfortunately, the weather doesn’t look to be super sunny or hot.. and it’s finally going to be 70 degrees in MN… (I really wouldn’t expect any less – if it’s anything like our other vacations) but i’m excited to sip some cocktails on the beach! I’m hoping for a little bit of sun and some warmth but either way it’ll be a fun trip- visiting with old friends and celebrating Megan and Ben.  Oh yeah, and getting alone time with the hubby!! #illtakethatanyday 


I, of course, have to mention Lilly as one of my favorites!  They opened a store in Sandestin and I can’t wait to go in and add some color to my closet!  I like to believe it’s getting me through this winter… although I only seem to be able to wear the dresses 5 days out of the year due to MN weather!! #notworthit #whenarewemovingbackdownsouth

That’s all I have for you guys today! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  I’ll be packing away and getting ready for our trip! I’ll be back next week talking all things Southern Charm! ❤


Wedding Wednesday!

I’m sharing my last Bridal Shower today.. I know you’re kinda thinking i’m crazy.. I mean 3 bridal showers?! And sharing them every week..? but don’t worry next week will be all about my bachelorette craziness 🙂 I’m happy to document these things while they’re still fresh in my mind!

My final bridal shower was on Halloween 2015 at my Mama’s house.  She and my sister threw it for me for my Mom’s side of the family. A little side note- my Grandpa and Uncle passed away around Halloween (2005 for my Grandpa and 2014 for my Uncle) so it’s always really nice to be able to get together with that side of the family to remember how amazing both these men were to all of us!  Now back to the fun and crazy bridal shower 🙂

They had a fun Mimosa Bar- Yes please, my absolute favorite! #asidefrommargaritas #andqueso  They had an antique trunk for my gifts to go in and oh yeah- all my favorite foods including queso from my fave local Mexican restaurant and BBQ chicken wings!  It was seriously the best!

Love all of my family- my two nieces and sister- and Grandma 🙂

We played the traditional game of a toilet paper Bride’s gown! Everyone “numbered” off into groups- yes numbered! And more of the fun began!

We also played the “He said/She said” game since it was a new group of people and it was pretty funny to see people’s reactions to “The hubs-to-be said that?!!?” 🙂


Thankful to my sweet Mama for hosting a fun day 🙂

We finished the night off with Trick-or-Treating all together – (mostly all the cousins) which is so fun now that there are quite a few little ones!

So thankful for such a fun day and it felt bittersweet- I was sad I wouldn’t have any more festivities but then remembered I’d get a crazy weekend in Mankato for my bachelorette party in just a few short weeks!


Friday Favorites!

Hello Friday…Boy am I so glad to see you! Excuse all the flamingos featured today- apparently I thought it was Flamingo Friday!  Poor little Destin was neutered yesterday so it looks like it’ll be a quiet weekend around here- totally OK with that! He’s usually super playful so it’s been nice to get the extra snuggles in- when i’m not chasing him to make sure he’s not jumping 🙂 #getsannoyingquick #neverwantstolaydown


Can we just talk about our new doormat for a minute?? It’s seriously the cutest thing ever and gets me more excited for summer and warmer weather! I’m also wearing my cute and comfy monogram sandals which can be found here.

Flamingos Doormat


My brother turned 30 this week and we celebrated with dinner and a few gifts! I made this cute gift basket for him – 30 gifts for his 30th birthday with little captions for what turning 30 is!  His big gift was a North Face fleece jacket 🙂  He’s getting married in July so he’s starting his thirties off with a bang!


We just bought tickets to see Beauty and the Beast at the end of April for a girlfriend’s birthday.  It’s at the dinner theater which will be a new experience for both of us!  Belle was always my favorite Disney princess (along with Ariel) so i’m pretty excited for all the music and the show!  I used to think since I had brown hair i’d grow up to be her and be able to sing all day long! #taleasoldastime #realitycheck 


How cute is this Flamingo Tee from Lilly Pulitzer?! I also am loving this and this dress.  And this phone case?! Obsessed!  Loving this case as well!

Flamingo Tee


I ordered this top yesterday and cannot wait to get it in the mail!  It’s definitely a “must-have” shirt in my book- I own 3 other colors and even bought my Mama one for Christmas.  It’s such an easy shirt to wear with leggings and jeans.  I’m so excited to add this Electric Pink color to my closet!  As I mentioned yesterday – I’ve learned to dress in bright colors for a sunny day 🙂

Hope everyone has a great weekend!  Here’s hoping it doesn’t fly by!
