Crush your mid-week hosting (with just 5 extra mins!)

Target-Home-Hosting-2.5

If you’ve followed GBO for very long (or even 5 minutes), you’ve probably gathered that I have a serious propensity for spreading myself way too thin. It’s something I’m good at – what can I say? (#nottobrag #justkiddingthisisntagoodthing) With a full time job + the blog + husband + my sweet baby boy, you’d think that mid-week entertaining is something we simply wouldn’t have time for. Aaaaand you’d basically be right. BUT, a person’s gotta live too, amiright?!

Almost summer. Almost.

Old-Navy-Summer-1

a) Why oh why couldn’t I have gotten my nails done prior to these pics being taken? It’s killing me softly.

b) The pics in this post are hilarious to me. Here’s Chase playing with Jack and looking like a completely adorable, attentive, dreamboat husband and father, and then don’t worry – I’m just over here on my phone. NBD. Haha! You guys! I swear it’s not like that in the real life – ok? I couldn’t take a good picture for the life of me during this photo shoot. Tragedy.

A Whole Bunch of Ways to Wear White Jeans

Tory-Burch-Handbag-4

So is my evident obsession with this pair of white jeans getting awkward? Based on the fact that they make an appearance on either the blog or Insta about once a week (which reads I’m wearing them at least twice a week and just not posting pics of the other times out of shame), I’d say Yass: we’re starting to feel uncomfortable about it.

Chicwish Florals and Some Melodrama

Floral-pencil-skirt-Chicwish-2

Let me just apologize right off the bat for the fact that I’m about to make you victims of the most random, melodramatic post of all time. I have things on my mind. You guys, the massive earthquake in Nepal – did you donate to any relief efforts for that? I didn’t, and it’s really, really bugging me. If you have any suggestions for meaningful ways to contribute to that or good places to donate to, will you please share? Please please please. And thank you.

Another thing: I have a blogging friend who some (or lots) of you may know, who recently found out that her husband has stage 4 Melanoma cancer. She is 8 months pregnant with her 5th child. Sigh – can you even imagine?
