CHRISTMAS PILLOW COVERS-AMAZON

Friday, November 5, 2021

 



Happy Friday friends!!

I'm about to get my butt up off the couch and do some cleaning! At least once or twice a week I give myself an hour, literally set my alarm, and get as much cleaning as I can. Of course, washing dishes, sweeping, wiping down tables is an everyday thing. 

And that my friends are our "wild Friday night" plans lol 

I know I said I wasn't going to decorate for Christmas this early, I will in about another week or so but that doesn't mean I can't stock up on decor, right? 

My original, every day, pillow covers are from Amazon and they are such great quality. I love to get my seasonal ones from Amazon as well because they're so affordable! And you can find them in a set of 2 or 4 for such a steal! 

I rounded up some of my favorites! I love them all so I don't know which ones i'll get. I always stick to traditional Christmas colors. 

Which set is your favorite?

AFFORDABLE FALL OUTFIT!--TEXAS INSPIRED

Monday, November 1, 2021

 







Happy Monday!

Y'all it's November 1st! What the heck! 

The older I get the more I feel like time goes by so.dang.fast! One second I'm busy making dinner and then boom it's the next day. 

I had the hardest time taking these blog pics, mostly because I haven't done it in a while and I was a little dusty! I couldn't remember my angles and then they all seemed so unflattering! So this is the best I could do, I promise I'll get my groove back soon! 

Today I'm sharing this super casual & affordable Fall outfit! By the title you know it's Texas inspired, meaning it's still a fall #ootd but you're not going to burn up being that it's still pretty hot in Texas. 

The mornings have been chilly so I'll give it that. Trying to practice being grateful here lol 

I can't remember if I shared this tee (available here) already but this color is do die for! And clearly it screams Fall! I sized up to a medium. Honestly at this point I don't know if I'm sizing up or if I'm a true medium now lol once I figure it out I'll let you know. 

I bought these jeans (available here)  during the summer! The white is sold out but I'm linking the other color. These are very similar to the mom jeans we all loved a couple a couple of years ago! 

You could totally wear this outfit with some flats or mules. But I ended up pairing it with these heeled sandals (available here)  from JustFab! 

And that is it for today's blog post! I hope you guys enjoyed it and as always thank you from the bottom of my hear for continuing to support & read my blog!

Happy Monday friends! 

Today was a a somewhat hard day. 

In the process of healing, you sometimes keep yourself so busy, or laugh a little harder that when you're left alone with your thoughts and pain it all seems to come crashing down all at once. BUT with healing you some how learn to pick yourself back up and move on. 

I ran into Target the other day while Julian was at AWANA and found a few great items. Honestly I haven't had much luck with Target lately.A lot of the things are either cropped, too ripped or just too tight. Maybe it's just me lol

I absolutely loved this first top (available here)! I sized up to a medium for a loose fit and it works well with leggings as well! It comes in other colors and only $10! 

This camo sweater (available here) is buttery soft! Again sized up to a medium! 

I've shared this sweater before (available here) in white/cream, and of course I had to get it in leopard! 

Another great basic piece (available here) also comes in a few other colors and this is only $8! You can style it so many ways!

Thank you guys so much for stopping by! I'll take to you soon!

AMAZON FAVORITES!

Thursday, October 21, 2021

 



Happy Thursday friends!

Wow has it been a hot minute right?

Life has just been absolutely crazy around here! It's been on thing after another and honestly mama is just tired! But we are pushing through and rolling with the punches! 

I have purchased quite a few things from Amazon so I thought why not come back with sharing some of my favorites! 

So here we go! 

Pillow Covers: I've had these for a few months now and I am obsessed!!! They fit so well and are super affordable! You can also find seasonal covers as well! 

Travel Makeup Bag: I have down sized my makeup collection! I know crazy! But honestly I have just been using the same products for a year now and I love them so I've just been sticking to them! This makeup bag is perfect because it has so  many compartments and they're adjustable too! 

Mail & Key Holder:  Listen! I finally got tired of all the mail and all keys on  the dinning table! Found this cute little guy and was perfect! 

Jean Hooks:  These were a lifesaver! I was running out of room in our closet and needed a way to hang my jeans. I found these hooks and I highly recommend them! 

Gallon Water Bottle:  Probably one of my favorite and most used purchases! This water bottle comes in several other colors and of course, affordable. It's a full gallon so I don't have to constantly be refilling. 

Hair Towels:  I don't know what took me so long to order these! Game changer!!! I feel like they do not damage my hair at all! Comes in a pack of 3. 

Silicone Placemats:  If you've been looking for some good placemats these are the way to go! If we're being honest I cannot stand cloth placemats or the other kind, they slip and slide around! These however are silicone so they stay put! Are easy to clean and are not all that hideous lol 

Measuring Cups & Spoons:  I have been wanting gold silverware for the longest time, long story short my husband said no "that's too extra" so I got these instead lol We compromised I guess you could say. 

Frother/Mixer:  My husband will say this purchase was pointless, BUT let me tell ya! My coffee has never been so creamy & delicious! 

Claw Clip:  I am so late to hop on this trend but it is one I can definitely get behind! I love just throwing my hair up with one of these bad boys! And can we talk about the colors! I mean! 

-----

I hope you enjoyed this post! Thank you so much for supporting my blog and just for everything! So grateful for you!

WEDNESDAY MORNING CHAT: GOING THROUGH THE MOTIONS

Wednesday, July 28, 2021

 


Happy Wednesday friends!

As you can tell this post should've gone up this morning, but I didn't wake up on time, do I ever though? lol 

I remember the days I would wake up at 4:45 am or 5! I mean what? Talk about motivation! Once you fall off track, it's so hard to get back to the early morning routines!

I really don't know what this post will be about, I'm having just so many thoughts on my mind & blogging all about it helps me get through it. 

Rewind five months ago, life seemed great! I had reached a point in my life where not only, was I mentally doing good, but physically and spiritually getting better. 

April 8, life changed. You hear it all the time, "enjoy life because it can change in a split second". I'm here to tell you that, it's true. 

One moment you're at work, eating a sandwich, then the next second, you're rushing to the hospital in hopes that your biggest fear doesn't become a reality. 

I've gone through all the emotions. Anger, sadness, grief, happiness, every thing. I guess in our situation when I say grief, we feel grief, because we lost a part of my husband. We lost sense of security. I've lost the feeling of feeling safe. 

Sometimes I feel guilt. Guilt because maybe I could've done something. I could've appreciated life more, and maybe if I would have this wouldn't have happened. 

Happiness because well my husband is still here, safe. Because this community has been AMAZING. They have supported our family so much. 

Since April 8, I have learned to appreciate life even more. Because I now KNOW that it can change in a split second. 

I hope you guys enjoyed this post somewhat. I had no idea what I would write so here we are lol 

Thank you guys for stopping by! 

Talk to you soon!

3 TARGET OUTFITS UNDER $30

Wednesday, June 16, 2021

 





Happy Wednesday friends!

I know it has been a hot minute since I've shared anything!

Life has been hard lately, and I'm slowly but surely getting back to reality and getting use to our "new" normal. 

One thing that has got me ready to get back to blogging is that fitting rooms are slowly opening backup!!! I am so dang excited! 

Of course my first post is a Target Try On! Mama has gained a few pounds so I was hesitant to try anything on! I will confess, I had a melt down last week when I went in to try some bathing suits. Listen...life has been tough and food has been my comfort sooo we're rolling with it (no pun intended). 

The first outfit came home with! From top to bottom! Paid a total of$50! Not too bad. This leopard tank (available here) is so cozy! I think this is a new brand at Target, or at least I hadn't seen it before. But the material is so good! These shorts (available here) are definitely a summer staple! Great booty coverage, material is amazing & you can dress them up or down!

This next outfit was my second favorite! I really liked the top (available here) but I just don't think it was flattering on my body style. Another pair of affordable shorts (available here) ! These are perfect for a summer date night!

Okay here me out this dress (available here), I don't know how I feel about it. I mean it's cute but I'm a little too short for it so I feel like a piƱata lol I think if you're a bit taller than this would look so cute!

-

So that is it for my first post back!  Thank you guys for all the support you have shown us! We truly couldn't get thru this season of life without y'all!

See y'all next time!

LET'S CHAT: SNOW STORM + GRATEFUL FOR THE LITTLE THINGS

Friday, February 19, 2021


Happy Friday friends!

We are finally seeing the light at the end of the tunnel!

It has been crazy here in Texas, in case you haven't heard. I honestly can't believe how bad things got around here. So many people were without power this entire time, and I just can't imagine how they were feeling. 

We were fortunate enough to have power the whole time. We ended up losing water 2 days ago. And we have a busted  pipe. But overall I think we made it out of this okay. 

So many people didn't. I've read 2 stories in which people died trying to stay warm. I don't think any of us were prepared for this. 

With COVID in 2020 and this Winter storm, I feel like it has taught us so much. 

I'll be the first to admit, looking back I do feel like I have taken so much for granted. 

It's crazy that all these events had to happen for me to realize how much I have to be thankful for. I guess life is like that sometimes.

So if you're reading this, I pray that you never take anything for granted again. A warm shower, a warm house, a hot meal, or hugging your family. 

To my friends in Texas, I am praying for us all. We are one day closer to being done with this. And we have 60 degree weather to look forward. 

I hope you guys have a wonderful weekend! I'll talk to you next week!

WALMART TRY ON!

Wednesday, February 3, 2021

 






Happy Wednesday friends!!

How has life been for you? 2021 started off a little better than 2020 but I think we're all a little on edge with this "new normal". 

I have been trying my best to improve my blog and the content I put out. I know a lot of people don't really read blogs anymore, but honestly I can't give up my blog nor do I plan too. There's just something about this little space of mine that draws me in. I love sharing life with you! So with that said, please leave me a comment with what blog content you would like to see. 

So clearly I am a bit obsessed with Walmart! They have just been really stepping up their game y'all! I found the most basic pieces that I know you will get a ton of use out of! 

This chambray top will be perfect for Spring and Summer! And only $15! Doesn't get much better than that! 

I may loose some of y'all on this, but I am not a huge fan of the tye dye trend! I just feel like I can't pull it off! BUT I can go for a subtle tye dye! This top is perfect because again its not too colorful!

When I tried this pullover on I felt like I needed to be taking a long night walk by the beach! I mean if you've ever done it you know how it's just so peaceful and something about it relaxes you instantly! 

And finally this simple top! I always size up in the No Boundaries collection! It's intended for "juniors" but I just size up! lol This top comes in a few other colors and is lightweight so great transitional piece! 

So that is it for this quick Walmart Try on! Like I mentioned earlier in the post, please leave me a comment with blog posts that you guys to want to see/read! 

Thank you so much for stopping by & for continuing to support my blog!

WORKOUT OUTFIT UNDER $50 / MY FITNESS GOALS FOR 2021

Wednesday, January 20, 2021

 










Happy Wednesday friends! 

Today has been such a crazy & busy day at work! 

But I am back with some more Walmart finds! 

I have been trying to reward myself with some new workout clothes for my 3 year "fitness" anniversary! I literally cannot believe I changed my lifestyle 3 years ago! 

I should have abs by now and killer arms buy hey it's a fitness journey for a reason lol 

Anyway back to the outfit! I snagged this dri fit long sleeve (available here) for only $10! Comes in a few other colors, I bought mine a size xs. 

I've talked about these leggings (available here) several times and I am obsessed! They are so so cozy and flattering! They also have the cute see through detail on the ankles! They remind me of something Fabletics would carry! 

My current favorite sneakers (available here) are only $20. I love these! I use mine for lifting or just running errands. They are comfortable and I love that they're slip ons! 

-
-

I know it has been a hot minute since we talk anything fitness around here, 

So I wanted to update you guys on what my fitness goals are this year! 

Which in all honesty I don't have too many lol 

My number on priority this year is to really eat healthier, but still enjoy a cheeseburger here and there. My eating habits have always been a struggle and although I am continuing to workout, you know what they say, abs are made in the kitchen! 

My next goal is to concentrate a little more on my upper body. I feel like I have neglected it so much these past couple of months. 

And my final goal is to just live a healthier lifestyle overall and share all the ups and downs with you guys! 

You have all been there since the beginning and I truly am grateful for y'all!
