Dear 4th of July: We’re Ready for You

Fourth-of-July-17.5-R

Happy almost July you guys! Now altogether now: “Where the H does the TIME GO?” Right? Tell me I’m not the only one feeling this way. Tell me I’m not only one asking myself how the poop it became JULY? Such is life I suppose. To that point, one of my favorite holidays is right around the corner… as in three days from now. Aside from the fact that I am an old-school, died in the wool, true-blue-through-and-through, proud-to-be-an-American patriot type and therefore I love the Fourth of July this holiday purely for the sake of what it celebrates, I also love that the Fourth equals BBQ’s, warm summer nights, sparklers, watermelon, parades, pancake breakfasts, lawn chairs lined up on residential streets to watch amateur fireworks, picnics, angel food cake with strawberries and mountains of whip cream, AND of course a completely valid reason for wearing three of my favorite colors all at one time: red, white and blue baby

Your Ta Ta’s Need This Bra

IMG_4379

Is it possible for a bra to make you feel more beautiful and be so comfy that it almost feels like you’re not wearing one? I would have said no until I put on this little number and wore it all day. I’ve since become a believer. Have you heard of Bali Intimates? I hadn’t. To be perfectly honest with you, bras – especially the functional ‘every day’ kinds – just haven’t been something I’ve wanted to fuss with much. I have my default brand that I’ve stuck with and that’s been that. But my default brand is far from comfy, and it is exactly that – default. This Bali bra is helping me see the light though you guys. Soft and pretty colors (like this pale pink one in the pic) mixed with a fit that looks and feels great = say hello to my new favorite bra. Who knew that being comfy could make me feel so darn beautiful.

Tahoe Times + This Express Top

Express-top-Tahoe-1

Chase and I spent the weekend in Tahoe a couple weekends ago. If you’ve never been there, put that sucker on your bucket list peeps. It is just so darn beautiful. I told you how Chase was doing the Tough Mudder, right? Yeah – that’s why we were up there. You guys – it was such an ordeal. The Tough Mudder itself went great for Chase. He basically crushed it, which came as no surprise. Chase is kind of one of those annoying guys who is really good at everything he does, even if it’s a first-try situation and even if he hasn’t trained for it AT ALL. It’s a real confidence booster for me (who is not that way), let me tell ya. Anywho, he did great. However, WE (meaning Jack and I) didn’t see any of it. We missed the entire thing! Wahhhhh! I thought it was going to take them longer than it did to complete the course, so I figured I’d put Jack down for his morning nap and then we’d go up there and catch the last half after he woke up. Well as it turned out, husband finished way faster than anticipated and Jack slept longer than anticipated, and the combo meant that we literally showed up to the race location after Chase had crossed the finish line. We didn’t see any of it. Can you believe that?! I was secretly super butt-hurt about it actually. May or may not have cried about it. Haha! Aaaaaaand now you all know that it was clearly that time of the month for little Miss Emotional over here when all of this was goin’ down. Awesome. All in all, it was a good weekend, despite the Tough Mudder debacle.

Two Ways to Decorate Your Porch!

Target-Front-Porch-7

Happy Friday amigos! Sorry for being completely M.I.A. this week. Some last minute travel for work to NYC made this week a little cray cray crazy. But I’ve teamed up with Target today to talk porches! Yes porches. It’s summer after all, which means a lot more coming and going for you, your family and your friends. Translation: getting your porch game on-point might not be the worst idea. Especially when it comes to the summer get-togethers you’re hosting, having something fun and inviting right on your front porch is like telling your guests ‘hey, you’re in the right place and this is gonna be guuuuuud’ before they even walk throught the front door. Winning!

Since husband and I are in a poopy little apartment right now, I borrowed my in-laws’ porch to create two different looks, featuring items primarily from good ol’ Target (a.k.a. budget friendly). Lemme know what you think!
