Happy Monday, Friends!!
I showed up WAY late to this party, I know!! hahaha!! On Friday morning my Bloglovin' feed was FULL of Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Posts. Everyone was sharing their wish lists, their must-haves, or what they bought. I have to tell you....I LOVED seeing what everyone wanted!! So, I thought I'd go ahead (even though I'm late) and share my WISH LIST with you! Some of these things I've already ordered and some I'm holding my breath for my birthday. ha! My birthday is in less than 2 weeks, so feel free to take notes. :) Here are my absolute FAVE things on sale!!
Olivia Moon Blazer...doesn't this SCREAM fall to you??
Zella Workout Capris...my friend, Haley, LOVES Zella workout gear. She MIGHT have talked me into it.
Plaid Toggle Coat...I ordered this and LOVE how it looks in person!! The plaid is SO cute!
Nike Running Shoes...$54!!!
Dolce Vita Booties...this was my big splurge and oh my!!! I tried them on as soon as they arrived! They fit like a glove! So comfortable! The heel is the perfect height. I called Marla (mother-in-law) later that day to see what she'd bought at the sale. And...she bought these booties too!!! Hilarious!!
North Face Pullover...my aunt got my a similar pullover a long time ago and I'm still wearing it.
Ok...there's my wish list! What do you guys think? Did anybody order any of these goodies??

Today Andrea, Narci, and I are starting a new series!!! It's called Friday Favorites! We'd love for you to join us and link up. You just blog a favorite moment, favorite picture, favorite verse, favorite ANYTHING and then share it with us!! We can't wait to read all about your faves!!
I'm sharing a favorite moment. The kiddos and I tagged along on Tab's work trip. We're at Barton Creek in Austin. He's having meetings and golfin' it up while we hang out! Yesterday morning it was kind of cool, breezy, and a little rainy. Barton Creek has a nature trail. We'd done it the night before with Tab, but we didn't do the whole thing. We took a detour onto the cart path and walked part of the golf course. BEAUTIFUL!
But...anyway, the kiddos and I decided to do the entire nature walk and we had SO MUCH FUN!!! There was a tee-pee along the way and a spot to look out. Ebby Lee pretended she was our tour guide. Nixon kept watching for bears and he thought we were SO lost! Bowen got tired about 1/10 of the way through and I carried him the other 9/10 of the way!! I just stopped in the middle of the craziness and thought I want to remember this forever! We were all having a blast! We were living out our "Hot Mess" status, but when they're older I'm SO going to miss these moments!!
I should add that about 40 minutes in when we saw other people I MIGHT have yelled, "How much longer do we have!!?"!! hahahaha!! I was starting to get a little nervous like Nixon that we were never going to make it out, but while we were in there...it was definitely a FAVORITE moment!!
On Tuesday, I linked up with Andrea to share our kids' rooms. I was having MAJOR computer issues, so I couldn't load pictures of Ebby Lee's room. But...here they are!!
When we moved in, her room was super plain...off-white walls and old carpet. I don't think I took a "before" picture of her room. We replaced the carpet, painted her room purple (her new favorite color...ha!), and added vinyl polka dots to brighten up the space. I bought vinyl ones because it was WAY easier than painting them!! And...those coloring pages taped to the wall are courtesy of Ebby Lee. I didn't have the heart to take them down for the picture. She loves having her art on her walls. She wants to be an artist after all. :) So...I left them...this is real life! haha!
We pretty much used decor from her old room. Her bedding and bed are from the old house too. Probably in a year or two we'll let her upgrade and have more of an input. :)
Her nightstand...we got fun Christmas trees for the kiddos' rooms last year and they sleep with them lit up every night! We all love them...so apparently they're sticking around for ALL of 2014!
She has a trundle bed underneath her twin. In our old house, Nixon slept there every night after Bowen was born because Bowen took over the crib. Now...her trundle is perfect for sleepovers!
And...the lampshade is a little crooked. :) She loves it!! And...I LOVE that it's the perfect space for her.
Thanks so much for stopping by!!!
