It’s been a while, so just going to share some of our lately adventures. Nothing but love, soaking up every second of this thing called life, and putting all worries behind. The sweet JOYS like: Family, Friends, Flowers, and Fashion!



Always the best time up North!

Hoping to be up there A LOT more! It's Time.

Celebrating all Together!

 Time stops, even up North, when you run into your HS BFF!

Corn Hole ~ Rents WIN!


Planning the Girls Shower celebration and having so much fun with it. I should've been an even planner, lol! 3D ultrasound starting to show their beautiful faces! This is Baby B as she was sitting on A lol. And yes, they’ve chosen names.

Mom put together 40 of these so far.

Flowers Galore

You know How much I love flowers of all kinds, huge favorite year round. It’s safe to sage there will be oodles of flowers at the Twin’s shower.


I recently found the prettiest Dried Flower Arrangements. I know my annual flowers will be gone in a couple months. An arrangement or centerpiece of dried flowers really brightens up the home or special event. So many great options. These would be great for the Baby Shower too!

Meadow Magic Arrangement

My flowers: Popping like crazy and well taken care of by mama while we were gone. The bottom photo is in front of the front porch area; such a nice mix.

Mini Elephant Ears and Paradise Vista Petunias


Lots of eating, drinking and relaxing time to be had lately!



Fewest Outfit pics over the past month ever! Been more in cut-offs and tees. But many of these pieces are on sale now. I've linked up several here.

Loved THIS JUMPSUIT and it's on SALE

This JUMPSUIT was my travel outfit and so cool!

All the fun with real friends.

Nordstrom Sale  
The only things I’ve bought in the past that I love! I use/wear these pieces over and over. Probably only getting fav undies this year. #overrated

Happy Weekend, always love ya!

    Love all of the family time! June for us was nice and laid back and this month has been quite a month so far with different things going on! I am looking forward to a chill weekend. I found an overall jumpsuit on Amazon that I love and I might have to order it in another color when it goes on sale. While I am wearing lots of color, I am craving some neutrals all of a sudden. And yes, you could definitely be an event planner!!

  13. Oh yay! It sounds like you have been having a wonderful summer. Off to check out that adorable printed jumpsuit!

  14. What a great time you have been having! I love all of the photos. 3D ultrasound's are amazing!

  16. So good to see you back. I missed you. It's amazing how you can see the babies that way...and to think when I was born, it was only heartbeats.

  17. That shower is going to be EPIC! I can't wait to see how it all turns out. It looks like you have been having a great time.

  18. I'm so happy you've been enjoying your family time! I cannot wait to hear about the shower! You should be an event planner for sure!
