Weekending

Hey ya'll and happy start of a new week! We seriously had so much fun this weekend! On Friday night, I went to my first 'Farmville Ladies Night' group and met some fabulous new ladies. We did wine spritzers and clay earring making for this month's theme. Our host does handmade clay earrings in any shape, color and glaze from dangles to studs and sells them on Etsy in her shop. Ya'll have go to check here out - Play with Clay by Martha. She has so many options and sizes to pick from. I was a little nervous at first since I was the new kid on the block but I've already volunteered to co-host next month's meeting and I am so over the moon about these ladies already. (Fun fact: we all went to the same high school!) I've wanted to start a supper club for literally over a year and just haven't executed it yet and this will sort of push me in the right direction. I'm sure I can incorporate a similar theme or concept in future get-togethers or start one on the side and invite a lot of the same ladies I just met! Seriously though, wine + crafts + girls time? I'm in! 



How cute are these?!
Here are more styles available in her shop currently! 

Saturday we had a friend's wedding at a new venue in town and even though it poured rain a good time was had by all! (I'm talking another one of those I'm 30 years old and cannot party like this anymore nights. ha!) On Sunday, I went to pick up Andi from my parents house and unfortunately Hubs got called out to work. I spent most of the day relaxing since it was cold and rainy and ended up doing dinner with them as well. I got home around 7 on Sunday night, changed the sheets (because fresh sheets are in my top 10 favorite things list) and went to bed early to recoup from the weekend.

Linking up with Biana and Meghan and hope ya'll had a fabulous weekend as well!

Friday 5

Hey ya'll and happy Friday! I have a fun weekend planned with my first girls night with some new ladies in town tonight (I was just recently invited to this group and I'm so excited to meet some new ladies in town!) and we have a wedding on Saturday night. I'm super excited to see the venue where the wedding will be and to celebrate with friends. I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend and I'll see ya'll back here on Monday! Linking up with AprilKarliAndrea & Amanda so grab the buttons and join in on the fun! #TGIF




Itching to add something cute and affordable to your closet? Ya'll look at this dress that Brittany from Life as the Mrs. shared on Wednesday and its under $50! SO cute and I have got to snag it in blue!



Ya'll we are so close to finishing our little deck add-on and I love it so much already! Basically we had a semi-dangerous concrete slab/stoop that wasn't really up to code. We extended it about 8 feet and added railings for a little porch/landing feel and hubby has done a fabulous job! Here's a little preview:




I took this snap because I thought those little violets were so cute next to a fresh pedicure! Cheers to spring, jacks and warmer temps!



My little flower girl enjoying some barefoot time! I wish I could borrow her skirt! 



How good does this quick and easy recipe look? Looking forward to making this asap!

Spring Florals

With it being officially Spring and all, do any of ya'll have florals on the brain the way I do? I'm talking within your fashion choices, home decor and actual flowers! I love nothing more than dressing up pretty cheap grocery store flowers in a ginger jar or snagging flowers with Miss A out on our walks and decorating every tiny bud vase on our kitchen windowsill. (Lately she's been all about picking her Mama flowers and I hope it never ends ya'll!) I'm even loving the bold, floral wallpaper choices I've been pinning lately despite how much my hubby shakes his head in disapproval. With all of this being said, I'm dedicating today's post to all things floral. Here are some of my favorite pins lately. What are your favorite Spring trends currently? I'd love to hear your go-to's for decor, fashion and even crafts!

Weekend Shananigans

Hey ya'll and happy Monday! I hope everyone had a safe and fabulous Easter weekend! Ours was packed with fun stuff and I'm looking forward to a more relaxing week actually. (Next weekend we have a friend's wedding so it'll be packed again I'm sure!) Our little town had its annual wine festival on Saturday and that is always SO much fun! Hubs happened to be off so he was able to join like last year and we hung out with some of my highschool favorites. Ya'll, we kept the party going too...like basically ALL night...why don't we realize how old we are? Sunday we had a lot of family time (and recovery) between my parents and my in-laws and Miss Andi got to experience 4 separate Easter baskets (we're stocked on chocolate and goodies for awhile to say the least!) 

Today hubs and my FIL are tackling our new extended porch/deck off from the kitchen that I mentioned a few weeks ago. Basically we currently have a small cement stoop-like entrance and quite frankly its a little dangerous. We'll be doing an 8-foot deck expansion to cover that and it'll flow with hexagonal steps onto the patio. He's also throwing in pretty railing to make it safer and a built-in flower box for me! I'm so excited to get home today and see the progress!

Friday 5: New Make-up Favorites

Hey ya'll! I'm sure you know how much I love product review posts (they're literally my favorite actually) so I decided to do a mini round up of some new products I've been using for my Friday 5 today. (there's 5 products so it works out perfectly!) I'm not sure if ya'll watch Southern Charm - well if you don't you should - but I adore all things Cameran. You might remember her from the Real World San Diego (throwback to 2004 ya'll!) but she's now on Bravo's Southern Charm on Monday nights and hubby and I just adore the show. Her Instagram is full of product recommendations and there's seriously not one thing I dislike about her and her beauty routines so I've been following it like a stalker. Not to mention she's literally hilarious. With that said, most of these products have come straight from her! (Did I mention we tweeted each other back and forth about lip glosses? Yea, we're besties ha!) Anyway, here are my recent favs. Let me know what your tried and true make-up favorites are currently because I'd love to give them a try!

Also, thank ya'll SO MUCH for all the Andi love this week! Her birthday was simply perfect!

Just chatting with my bestie ... haha I do love Twitter 




1. Chanel Le Volume Mascara  - ya'lll this mascara is a game changer! Adore and I give it a 10 out of 10 on volume, length and ease of removal as well. It is like having lash extensions and I'm sold! (This was her second recommendation after Trish McEvoy)

2. Trish McEvoy Vibrant Pink Sheer Lipstick  - I couldn't love this more! I'm not a heavy lipstick person and this 'sheer' lipstick is just the ticket! Such a fun color and I wear almost daily now.

3. Tarte Amazonian Clay 12-hour Blush in Paaartay - Oh my word ya'll this is funny but I've had the same covergirl blush since the 8th grade...the EIGHTH GRADE! I'm now hooked and a true believer in this new one. Sorry CoverGirl (I still love you)

4. L'oreal Sublime Bronzing Wipes/Towlettes  - ok so I haven't tried these yet because I didn't see them at our Wal-mart. I snagged the Jergens lotion instead until I could find them. Stay tuned!

5. Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer in Fairly-Light Neutral  - this product is amazing and a little goes a long way! It brightens so well and stays put ALL day!

Anderson Greer is 2

Happiest of birthdays to my sweet, precious, hilarious and kind-hearted angel. I'm not sure I truly understood the depths, fears and emotions that love could cause until you entered my arms at 6:04pm this time 2 years ago. Yes, I'll say it, time goes by entirely too quickly but you seriously make each and every day something to get down on my knees and thank God for. You are my bestie little girl and we love you more than you will EVER know. Cheers to you Monkey-Doodle! Now let's eat some cake and celebrate!

Happy Birthday Anderson Greer!
