Friday Favorites: August 2017

  Favorite App – Unroll Me OMG this app is a lifesaver if you find yourself ridiculously backlogged in personal emails as I do! It scans your email and allows you to unsubscribe from any you don’t want to keep all at once. It also lets you roll any of the subscriptions you do want into one “roll-up” email per day.  It will scan your email initially and then each day for any new subscriptions that come through. I unsubscribed from over 90 emails in just a few minutes! Favorite Finds This off the shoulder dress. These adorable suede wedges. This budget friendly scalloped tote bag. And this really cute statement necklace. Favorite Links Funny Kate Middleton moments – I really would love to be […]

Show Us Your Books {June 2017}

I thought I would get through more books this month at the beach and by the pool but no such luck…the ones I did read/listen to were all 4 or 5 stars so I guess it was quality over quantity! Linking up for Steph and Jana for the June book reviews! I Liked My Life by Abby Fabiaschi – 5 stars  Soooo good. This story is heart breaking and heart warming at the same time. For a debut novel, it was very well written. I listened to this book on Audible and never wanted to step away from listening, it really pulls you in to their lives! Each chapter is told from three points of view: Maddie, a wife and mother who really liked her […]

Show Us Your Books {May 2017}

Linking up with Steph and Jana for Show Us Your Books. This was a good month for books. I would recommend all of these! The Marriage Pact by Michelle Richmond – 4 stars Received from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. A newlywed couple gets themselves sucked into a secret, dark society. It’s equal parts creepy, intriguing and unbelievable. Wasn’t sure how I felt about the ending, it seemed like a let down but I didn’t exactly hate it. Overall, a great story because it really sucks you in. I stayed up a few nights much later than I should have because I didn’t want to put it down! Everything You Want Me to Be by Mindy Mejia – 4 stars Received from Netgalley […]

What’s New {May ’17}

What’s New? This week has been tough to keep up. I’ve just been feeling like I’m fighting off a cold and exhausted. But I’m accomplishing most of what I set out to each day so I’m hanging in there. April was a good month. I adjusted to my new work schedule, got back into a workout routine and filled the month with fun stuff in between. April Happenings: Trips to Epcot and Disney Springs for the Flower and Garden Festival, yummy lunch at The Boathouse, and the Origins Launch Party. A beautiful morning volunteering at the Walk for Life with some of my amazing Small Group ladies. A fantastic Easter Weekend with the family. A much needed Friday night dinner and drinks with my favorites. […]

Show and Tell Tuesday: Grown Up Parties

When I saw that today’s topic for Show and Tell Tuesday was parties I couldn’t pass up the chance to link up! I LOVE planning and hosting parties to celebrate friends and family. Two of my favorite parties I’ve helped to host in the past year were my best friends baby shower and a family friends bridal shower. For both of these, I was co-hosting. I had two other friends to help me with my best friends baby shower and I was helping my mom out with her friends bridal shower when she was MOH. That’s seriously the best way to do any party, many hands make light work! And it’s more fun too 🙂 Baby Boy Shower   Game Themed Bridal Shower
