Date Night

 Leather + Strappy Heels

It’s date night, yay!  I love dressing up a little when Joel and I go out.  I’m usually in flats so I can chase Tommy around but whenever I’m kid free I make sure to wear heels.  Tonight I’m wearing one of my favorites!  I bought these during the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and have had so much fun with them!  Hope you all enjoy your weekend!

Snow Day

We have snow!  It’s not too common for it to snow in the south and that’s something I was thrilled about when we moved here.  My kids on the other hand absolutely love the snow and are loving life this week!  We may not have much snow on the ground but they’ll take what they can get.  Today is the second day that school and sports have been canceled so we spent the afternoon playing outside.  I hate being cold and I’m not a big fan of the snow but I love seeing my kids get excited about it.  I guess it’s not too bad as long you can come inside to a warm fire and hot cocoa.  Happy snow day, stay safe and warm!

My New Beau

Beau Bag 2

 Beau Bag 3

Beau Bag

When I was pregnant with my daughter Elle my husband Joel surprised me with a Kate Spade diaper bag for Christmas.  I was so excited I started using it before she was born!  This past Christmas (11 years later) he surprised me with another Kate Spade bag, the Beau Bag.  Needless to say I’m OBSESSED!!!  Kate Spade bags will always hold a special place with me and seeing how her bags get cuter and cuter with each one that’s released I’ll keep expecting Joel to “surprise” me with more!

What I’m wearing… Kate Spade Beau Bag, GAP Turtleneck, GAP Jeans, Wedges, JCrew Bracelets, Kate Spade Earrings, Lips: YSL #6

Today I wore one of my favorite coats, I’ve had it for years and it’s something I can dress up or down.  Tommy joined me for a few pics and then we were off to run errands.  I’m all about pairing basics with clothes that I actually wear out and about as I chase my kids around town.

 Thanks for stopping by…

War Eagle!

I’ve never been much of a football fan but have to say that Auburn University is rubbing off on me. My kids are die hard fans and I can’t help but get excited about this team too! I love how the community comes together to support their team. Definitely a fun year to move here. Win or lose, we’re Tiger fans now. War Eagle!

Cold, Cold, Cold!

Since we’ve moved to the South we’ve had hot, humid weather, lots and lots of rain, perfect fall weather, and now freezing cold, winter weather! We don’t have any snow to show for it but at least the sun was out.
