Favorite Moments: Had a wonderful lunch at Tazikis with a good friend. I am truly blessed with the amazing people in my life. We laugh together and cry together and it is always so good for my soul.

I have been making the best salads at home this week! Last night’s was mixed greens with apples, blue cheese, almonds and balsamic vinegarette dressing. It was sooooo delicious!!!

Someone has learned how to point this week. It is seriously so cute.

Favorite Recipe: Found this Whole 30 Pumpkin Chili recipe. Pretty sure you can’t get more fall festive than that!!! Can’t wait to try it out. Zoe loves pumpkin and has it a lot for lunches, I think she may have to test this out too.

Favorite Lust: Next time Loft runs a good sale, I need to scoop up this dress! It is buttery soft and so cozy and comfy. Perfect for fall/winter!

For no particular reason, this week seemed to get away from me faster than usual. I felt like I was in a constant panic to get things done most of the week…and I am so ready for the weekend!!!

Favorite Moments: Laura and I met for lunch twice this week! It was fabulous after her being gone all last week and not getting to see her. We had Babalu on Tuesday and Rowe’s yesterday. How amazing do these pork enchiladas look with the peanut slaw and chili sauce???

And this philly cheese steak with fries. Yum!

The rest of the week was spent eating healthier and cleaner. Lame. And I even left a few fries behind, showing total self control.

I have heard Zoe say “hi” and “bye” a few times this week. She doesn’t do it always…but when she does…I just think it is so amazing!

Favorite Recipe: How delicious does this look? If it says paleo vegan, then that means healthy…right?

Paleo Vegan Apple Crisp with a crisp topping and lots of flavor! Maple sweetened and grain-free, gluten-free and dairy-free.

Favorite Purchase: I bought this black tie back tank from Nordstrom Rack a few months ago and have worn it a ton. I always get several compliments on it when I wear  it. Well, I noticed that they are on clearance now! They are only $9. These shirts are so flattering on and I love to wear my black one under sweaters and stuff too, making it last all seasons. I ordered it in white and heather grey and I can’t wait for them to arrive.

Favorite Lust: I want to get a long cardigan to make some of my summer dresses (the plain black one and black and white striped one) more fall appropriate. It will give them a different look than my jean jacket.

And I think this Loft dress would be perfect to add to that mix too!

Favorite Funnies:

Every day.

Lol! That person would be my mother. She will just randomly stop in front of you like she ran out of batteries or something.

Favorite Moments:Unexpectedly working from home Monday and Tuesday was nice. I didn’t have to drop my baby off and have my heart break as she cries when I hand her over to one of her teachers and sneak out the door while they distract her. Mommin’ is hard during the week, and I certainly enjoyed the extra time and snuggles while still getting all my work done. And my sister stopped by for a few minutes with the boys so that she could see Zoe and it was great getting to see all of them for a little bit.

Sometimes you have to do things that are a little out of your comfort zone. I have been pushing myself hard this week to do just that. I worked on a few things that make me nervous, in a good way. I reached out to someone I had met before, but never really hung out with, and asked her to lunch. I ran into her over the summer while shopping and we said that we should grab lunch one day. You know how you always say you should meet up sometime but as you are saying it you know it is a lie? Well I am not saying that to say it anymore. I had a lovely time and we enjoyed delicious food and I hope to make it a regular thing with her. As busy adults, it is so easy to just keep living in your bubble and never venturing out. But how are you supposed to grow? How are you supposed to build your tribe?

Favorite Delivery: A few weeks ago while in Nordstrom Rack, I had tried on a pair of shoes that were super cute but I didn’t get them. I couldn’t stop thinking about them after I left and realized how many outfits they would go with. I looked online and found them, and they went even cheaper!!!! You guys, these are $15 right now!!!! I got them this week and they fit perfect! I wore them to work yesterday and had no problems all day. Do yourself a favor and grab a pair before they are gone.

Favorite Lesson: Just because it is the middle of the week, doesn’t mean you don’t deserve to do something special. Like wear a tutu because it’s Tuesday. Never save all your good stuff for the weekend.

Favorite Recipe: How good does this end of summer salad look????

Fresh and Healthy! Corn, Tomato, and Avocado Quinoa Salad - so so delicious!!!

Favorite Funnies:

spreading it!!!

You guys, dirty daycare germs are no freaking joke. Zoe had a fever Sunday and I took her to the doctor Monday and we found out she had an ear infection. The doctor told me to keep her home Tuesday too, and good thing I did. Tuesday morning I woke up with a stomach bug, on top of the cold I already picked up from her Monday. Trying to care for a sick baby who still manages to crawl around and pull up on everything when you are lying on the floor dying is not the easiest thing to do. Plus, Chris came home sick Tuesday night too. I am glad that we are on the other side of it all now and I *think* we are all on the mend.

Needless to say, I am riding the hot mess express this week. I am behind on all of the things and I honestly don’t even care. I am so glad Friday is here and that it is a three day weekend. And not just any three day weekend, it is the kick off to the college football season! Hurrah! Bring on all the apps and trash talk. Other than that, I am not sure what we have planned for the weekend. Probably taking it a little easy as we all finish recovering.

Favorite Moments:Feeling better and being able to look like a human again.

We sad goodbye to a coworker this week who accepted a new opportunity, and that was sad. But when he was cleaning out his office….he gifted me brand new Tiffany Champagne glasses. They are still in the pretty blue box and everything. Score!!!

Sweet, caring friends are always the best. Laura checked in on me every day I was sick, multiple times a day. Thanks for making sure I wasn’t dead!!! Hopefully we are having lunch today. I enjoy our lunch dates!

Favorite Delivery: My mom sent me some money to get something fun for my birthday. I ordered this BaulbeBar necklace that I had my eye on. I wore it yesterday and am obsessed! It is actually two separate pieces, one is a double layer and then there is a separate choker. It is so pretty.

Favorite Canned Drinks: Lately, it seems more and more adult beverages are showing up in can form, and I am loving it!!! Chris and I have been finding some serious gems at our local Hop City and I wanted to share three of my favorites. These are all light and summery! Trying to grab them all up before it is all about pumpkin things, you know? What is your favorite?

Pamp Fizz is a grapefruit rose that is real light, bubbly and refreshing. It is French but I think out of NY? I found these in single cans.

Atalanta is from Orpheus Brewing out of Atlanta. This is a Tart Plum Saison and it is so good!!!! It sort of reminded me more of a Gose than a Saison, but the plum notes give it a sour beer taste. Sours are my favorite. This one is so delicious!

Laura and I discovered Briney Melon Gose from Anderson Valley when we were out to lunch a few weeks back. Anderson Valley is out of California. This one has your typical Gose base, and the melon flavor is very noticeable in a good way. It is honestly one of the first melon beers that you could actually taste melon. And it was hints of watermelon, honeydew and cantaloupe. I saw they have a Blood Orange one out for fall now, I can’t wait to try it next.

Favorite Humans:It has been completely devastating watching the coverage in Houston and areas hit by the hurricane. My heart goes out to all of those who were stranded and lost everything. It warms my heart and reminds me that the world can still be a good place when I see strangers from all over the country coming together to send support and relief.

Favorite Funnies: Football edition!

Oh hey there, last weekend of August! Crazy, right??? When I opened the back door to let Mac out this morning, it wasn’t oppressively hot outside. Dare I say there was just the slightest chill in the air?!? (When I say chill, I mean it was 64 instead of 84 at 6am.) It was quite lovely. I don’t know about you all, but I am SO ready for fall!!!! Next Saturday football starts!!! Anyone else counting down?

Love it ....have already started the countdown RTR ❤️

Not really sure what all we  have planned for this weekend. I know at the top of the list will be purchasing a baby gate. Someone is on the move all day every day.

Favorite Moments: I had a work lunch last Friday and had to cancel lunch with Laura. So we decided we would make Tuesday special instead and went to Babalu. It was Taco Tuesday, where tacos are $2 each, so obviously we had to try lots. Annnnnd they basically have the best guac ever, so that was a duh.

On Thursday when I was driving through town and noticed the Heavenly Donut Truck! It is not often that food trucks come up our way!!! I swore if I ever saw them, I would grab some donuts for Zoe’s sweet teachers, and that is exactly what I did. Of course, I grabbed one for myself too. I know those teachers work hard and  have so much patience. They love on my Zoe Bear day after day and I wanted to do something for them.

I think that Zoe is cutting some more teeth right now. She hasn’t been napping much and seems a little off. Plus that pesky cold is still lingering around. That doesn’t keep those sweet smiles from coming though!!! Words cannot describe how much I love this little girl!

Favorite Purchase: On Tuesday night, I got up the courage to start removing items from my closet that do not fit right now. I still have a ways to go to get back to my pre-pregnancy size. Every morning when I get dressed, I start stressing out in my closet because I am staring at an entire wardrobe that simply does not fit. I have a few select things that I can wear and feel confident in. That is not good for my emotional state. I removed about 3/4 of my clothes. I put them in my office in a basket so that when the time comes, I can have them all back. I just don’t need them staring me in the face right now. On Wednesday, I went to Nordstrom Rack to get a few pieces so I have more than just a couple outfits to wear. My most favorite item I picked up is this top from Bobeau. It is so flattering on!!! I grabbed it in light gray because it was all they had at my location, but I really want this pink color too! You can’t beat the price and it is so cozy!

I also grabbed this Pleione ruffle top and this DR2 poncho.

I thought about maybe doing a post on how to dress your postpartum body while you are in transition to your former self. Or whatever your new self is going to look like. Would you be interested in that?

Favorite Recipe: I am going to try this greek yogurt chicken salad for lunch next week! It sounds super easy (uses rotisserie chicken) and I think I am going to have it with crackers, and then bring some carrots to go along with it too.

Favorite Funnies:

Ha ha , I know right!
