My Week in a Day

My Week in a Day


This week has been fast and furious. Really the past month has been crazy, but life is still good.

One of the boards I am on is hosting our biggest fundraiser tomorrow to raise money for the schools. We are so excited and are so proud of the work our committee has done to get us here. Our President has done a phenomenal job leading and ensuring the success of the organization. So grateful to work with men and women that are driven and team players!

Who doesn’t love a home tour? They are the best for design inspiration and networking. We showcase four homes in our local community and are very appreciative of the families that allow us in their homes. 19 years and counting!

Meetings, last minute items, checking off those action items, and supporting where needed make up my role for the week. I am your minion, tell me where to go =)

That said, I know I have been radio silent since cyber Monday, but I am back on it and will be more prompt in sharing some of my great finds and tips with you. In the meantime, you can always shop my looks on or in my Shop tab!

I am sharing six different looks with you. They are all great pieces that will take you through the seasons. Denim, athleisure, bell sleeves, layers, boho dress, and amazing shoes. A variety of affordable and stylish pieces. Thank you very much. A couple of items are still on sale from this past weekend so be sure to check them out.

Wish us luck tomorrow and I hope your Friday is wonderful!

Casual, Comfortable, and Holiday Chic

Casual, Comfortable, and Holiday Chic

Sharing four looks from this Thanksgiving break. Two are casual and comfortable, one is chic and street ready, and the last is holiday chic!

Sweaters, capes, and cardigans are big this season. Frill, ruffles, snaps, and cutouts. Three of my looks feature one or more of these details. I say the more the merrier. Have fun with fashion and the trends that are out there. You can find something to suit your body type and rock it with the best of the them.

The white sweater is actually by veryJ and was purchased at a local boutique, Dear Hannah. I linked a similar style at Nordstrom that comes in three colors. Everything else is available through the scroll below.

My holiday chic look is quite simple to achieve. I took a festive color top, which is 40% off right now and combined it with some beautiful striped trousers. There is limited quantity left. I love these pants too. They can be worn day or night and dressed up or down. Versatile and beautiful! I wore some great brocade heels, silver jewelry, and festive makeup to complete the look. Elegant and beautiful for the everday day girl/woman.

All looks are affordable and stylish. Yes! Have fun shopping this season. Don’t forget to check back often for more gift guides to take you through the holidays.

Twins Turn 6

Twins Turn 6

My babies turned six yesterday and I can’t believe how fast we got here. We dreamed of having babies for so long and after several losses were blessed with these two perfect boys. God answered a prayer and made us parents and we are so grateful for this opportunity to love, nurture, and guide our children.

Twins run in my family every generation and there are a few sets on Chris’ side too. When we found out I was expecting two my mom said, “Well, you always said you wanted twins!” Funny how little girl play became reality. Of course, we are happy that we had a boy, but all we wanted was a healthy child and pregnancy. We were blessed by both.

I had a wonderful pregnancy and all along thought the boys would come early. Around 31 weeks we started to have preterm labor and I was surrounded by some of the best in North Carolina medicine. I was fortunate enough to have a steroid shot. For those that do not know, this assists the child so they have a better experience breathing on their own and strengthens their organs. Thank goodness, because the boys arrived at 34 weeks and 1 day. If I was a betting woman, I would have won big!

They did not experience any trauma, but were delivered as emergency c-section babies as one went breach and they saw a loose knot in one of the chords and did not want to take any chances. Thank you. When I tell you this staff was a well oiled machine you would not believe how amazing they were that day. From the time I was wheeled into surgery to the time of delivery was a quick 15 minutes top. The boys spent 13 days in NICU and we made some wonderful friends out of nurses that loved and treated our sons as their own. What an amazing experience and a blessing to work with these women.

Today the boys are strapping young fellas and are in kindergarten. They are exceeding our expectations and have such much joy, energy, and thirst for learning. We are so proud of them and can’t wait to see what the future holds for them.

Happy birthday boys! Momma loves you!

Thanksgiving Recap

Thanksgiving Recap

Our Thanksgiving was a wonderful gathering with family. There were about 25 of us in the country. My siblings and their family, my parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents.

I am not going to lie, it was a long day of cooking and cleaning, but in the ends everyone was happy and healthy. Thank goodness.

I am not sure if you saw my Thanksgiving morning post, but oldest woke up with a bite on his wrist and a serious infection in his arm. I rushed him to the closest ER and was greeted with a friendly and knowledgeable staff. So thankful for these men and women that were giving their time to work and care for others.

Luckily, the pharmacy was open and we were sent home with antibiotics to help him heal. So scary to see these reactions in your children. He was very brave and a little feisty as he was overwhelmed. Good news is we are a couple days out and his arm looks a million times better. We have a few more days of meds and then he will be 100%.

One of the first things we did when researching the area for our country home was locate the urgent cares, hospitals, etc. The small hospital we visited was efficient and the staff was amazing. I feel safe and at peace after experiencing their care first hand. So, thank you thank you thank you for all you do!

I posted a quick candid of my son and I on IG. Here we are – BLESSED!

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and enjoyed the great Black Friday and Cyber Week sales. If you did not catch my sale guides be sure to click on the tab in the menu!
