Hey, friends!  Welcome to the first What's Up Wednesday of 2019!
What's Up Wednesday
It's been a busy month around here but really, when is it NOT busy?  There's always something going on or something to do.  I'm sure I'm not alone in this.  So let's see what all we've been up to lately.

Happy Friday!!

It has been a cold one here this week so I'm extra happy to see another Friday.  It means we're one week closer to warm weather!  January to March are my least favorite months so I'm counting down the days until Texas brings the HEAT!  Although to be fair, our weather is so up and down around here that it could be 80 next week.

Anyway,  today I'm linking up with my girls Erika, Narci and Andrea and sharing some of my favorite things from this week. 


I've mentioned it before but I'm on a mission to Marie Kondo the mess out of my house.  I mean, I'm not lovingly thanking each ratty old tshirt that I toss like she tells you to (bizarre) but I'm definitely all kinds of inspired.

One Little Word | 2019

Hello hello, friends and happy Monday!

Today we're talking resolutions.  What are yours?  Do you make them?  And more importantly, do you KEEP them?

I've waited until now to share mine because every year I make a few and then by this point in the month, I've either stuck with it long enough for it to be real or it has been completely forgotten.  So the ones that are sticking are the ones that I'm sharing. :)

1.  Go to the doctor.  My #1 resolution this year is to start paying more attention to my overall health.  I'm 37 now and apparently at that age where all sorts of things can start to go wrong.  If they haven't already.  I wouldn't know because after our insurance changed a few years ago and my doctor was no longer covered...I haven't really been to one.  For anything.  Because I'm stupid.  Trust me, I know how stupid this is.  And this is why I'm terrified to go now.  Something is SURE to be wrong! Right?

I can't believe it has taken me SO LONG to get this last part of the Disney recap written out.  I think it was partly because this final post came "due" right smack in the middle of all the Christmas madness and it just got pushed to the backburner.  I took a couple of weeks off during that time and pretended that everything could wait.  And it did.  And then I regretted that choice because once New Years was over, I was saddled with a ton of catching up.  Sigh.

Hey friends!  Today I'm getting a super late start on this blog post because I forgot it was Tuesday Talk day with Erika and Ashley!  Oops.  So I'm going to make it quick because this girl has a ton of work to do.  

Since Tuesday Talk is all about discussing anything under the sun I wanted to take the opportunity to let you know that the Deals blog is back up and running after a little hiatus while I enjoyed the holidays...and then some.  haha  It took me a minute to get my normal schedule back on track after so many days of just living like I don't need to work.  ;)

Just a little taste of what you'll find...

This decorative scale is on sale for just $14.99 today!  (I already grabbed one.  Easiest decision I'll make today.)  Find them HERE.

No photo description available.

Luxe tees for $5.99!  (Size up!)  All different colors but they are selling out fast!

But remember, that the Deals Facebook Group is where it's at for up to the minute deals and steals!  I post there first and if I have time, I transfer it over to the Deals Blog.  So if I'm M.I.A. on that blog, then check there!  You don't want to miss out!

So in addition to #allthedeals, my Etsy shop is in FULL SWING.  Apparently, there are a lot of you out there who have "water goals" this year (me too!) because I'm selling a ton of my water tracker bottles and tumblers and also my little "one little word" signs.  I have orders for a bunch of other stuff as well but those are the majority lately.

I'll be in and out of the FB group and Deals blog all day and night so come join me!

Happy Tuesday!

Happy Friday, friends!  I'm back today with my first round of Friday Favorites for 2019!  (Geez, say that 5 times fast.  haha)

Narrowing down my favorites for the week is always so hard...and so random.  And today is no different. 


I have to discuss one non-favorite.  Because what in the world ABC?!  That 3-hour premiere of The Bachelor on Monday was brutal.  Even your die-hard fans (ahem...) were having a hard time staying focused.  Those watch parties were so unnecessary.  I had absolutely no desire to see fans from all over the country staring into the camera and screeching like a bunch of preteen girls at a Jonas Brothers concert.  (Or whoever is cool these days.)  No thanks. 

And the random proposals?  Sweet I guess but RANDOM.  It seemed very contrived (because it was) and while I hope the best for those couples with their free Neil Lane diamonds, I hope those are the last random proposals we get.  I would much rather have seen an extra hour of the sloth girl climbing trees or the girls getting drunk and yelling at each other than those watch parties.  Or how about an hour of bloopers because THOSE are funny!

Look how cute sloth girl is by the way!

What made her think that dressing as a sloth, climbing trees and chomping on fruit all night would make Colton love her?  It makes no sense.  And it made me cringe.  I just can't.  I mean, if you MUST then at least take your costume off pronto and let him know you're a normal person and not a lunatic.  Your commitment to this character is not cute in any way.

Ok, I feel better now that I've gotten that off my chest.  So on to my favorites.  :)

The Holiday Review | 2018

Welcome back, y'all!!  I feel like I've been gone so long!!  

We are preparing to get back into our normal groove around here.  And I am so ready.  Well, I'm ready for these kids to go back to school, that is.  Not necessarily ready for all the rest. Up until last week, I was under the impression that the boys would start back to school today.  Yeah...not so fast.  Teachers go back today.  Kids go back tomorrow.  


One more day, y'all.  ONE.MORE.DAY.

So today we're getting some much-needed haircuts for the boys, digging out backpacks and lunchboxes, making sure we know where shoes are (Lord help us, they can never find both shoes), eating a normal dinner at a normal time, going to basketball practice, taking showers and then getting into bed EARLY.  Whoop whoop!  Vanderpump Rules and the Bachelor premiere are on tonight so I'm going to need kids in bed ASAP.  ;)
