Hey, friends!  It's time for another What's Up Wednesday!
What's Up Wednesday
We've had a busy month over here with the end of basketball, the return of baseball and Craig starting to travel again each week for Elite 11 football camps across the nation.  February is my least favorite month of the year because by this point I'm so over winter and ready for SPRING!  Thank goodness its also the shortest month of the year.  Now bring on the HEAT!!

But today I'm sharing all about what we've been up to lately so here we go...

Hey friends!! Welcome back to Part 2 of my L.A. girls trip!

If you missed Part 1, go HERE to check that out and then come back for Part 2!

A few months after we came back from L.A., Dani found out she had to go back that summer.  Again, I can't talk about the circumstances surrounding the trips because it's personal to Dani but when she asked if I was up for another few days in L.A. I was there for it! 

(And no, this had nothing to do with plastic surgery! haha Someone asked me that today which, looking back, I can see why they might think we were being sneaky.  Ha!  But no, no one was visiting any plastic surgeons.  Cross my heart.)

This next trip was even more fun!  Our first trip was in February so it was a little cool.  But this time it was SUMMER in L.A., my hair was back to blonde so I was feeling a little more California Girl-y, and we rented a convertible and pretended we were locals.  ;)  Ok, not really but we did feel like we had a better lay of the land.

Hey friends!  Today I'm back with another installment in my Rewind Series!

I love walking down Memory Lane so this series is so fun for me.  I thought it'd be neat to go back and show you a little of the fun that would have been posted if this blog had existed back then.  I wasn't always so boring, friends.  😉

You can find the other posts in this series below:

Oh my word, y'all!  This week has whipped my butt.  I know I said that last week was a weird one but this one has it beat.  There wasn't a single day that went smoothly, I feel so behind on everything and feel like I'm going to be playing catch up all weekend long. #storyofmylife


I'm going to meet my girlfriends for breakfast this morning, most likely in a baseball cap because even dry shampoo can't help me right now, laugh a lot, and try not to think about all the things that need to be done for a couple of hours.  And when that's done, I'll get to work on Etsy orders, catch up on laundry, finally unload the dishwasher and load the dirty ones that have been piling up in the sink, post #allthedeals in the FB group and maybe even on the Deals Blog as well and attempt to super glue my favorite wall mirror back together.  (Don't ask. Ugh.)

Since I haven't blogged since Monday, I'm going to combine our week with some of my favorites and then try harder next week to get my act together.  😉

As always, I'm linking up with Erika, Narci, and Andrea!

Happy Monday, friends!! 

“I like to set goals that aren't driven by chasing success, but rather to be better than I was before, or pushing my personal boundaries. If you create something of value either to yourself or someone else, success inevitably finds you.” #LiveHappier #MotivationMonday

I'm rarely excited to see Monday morning but my schedule felt so out of what last week and this weekend, that I'm happy to be starting fresh and trying to get things back on track.  But it's still going to be another odd week with more doctor's appointments, Valentine's Day, school parties, and 2 girls nights!  So basically...good luck with trying to get back to normal! 😂 #notgonnahappen

It's Thursday, friends!  The weekend is almost here and with the end of the week brings back the cold for us!!  Boo!  It's been so warm for the past several days here in Mckinney (high 70s!) and we have been relishing every second we get with it because we know it's coming to an end.  

And indeed it has.  Storms rolled in last night and brought back the cold temps.  Although I should say cold for us.  45ish is cold for us.  I know that is NOTHING compared to some of you!  Trust me.  I lived in Green Bay and Buffalo for several years so I'm well aware of those negative degree temps.  They make me want to cry just thinking about them.  I'm not even kidding when I say that.  I remember being in Green Bay when it was -17 degrees and almost crying when it was time to get out of the car and go into a restaurant.  It's a very vivid memory for me.  Whatever I ate that night was NOT worth it.  #justsayin

Friday morning, the low is 24 though and that still makes my bones ache.

Hello hello, friends!!

Welcome to my January Book Review! This is my first review of 2019 and also my first official review since October! #slacker 

November and December were crazy busy and when it came to organizing my thoughts on books--it just wasn't happening.  Disney World and then straight into the holiday rush won out in the end.

But I'm back on track now and finished 6 books in January-all audiobooks-and there was a pretty wide range of genres this time around.  Some rom-coms, some fluffy chick lit, some dramas and some thrillers.  Some were hits, some were misses and man, those misses are super annoying.  I'm not one to stop a book midway through but I really wanted to with one of these!

Happy Friday, everyone!

I spent yesterday with my parents instead of with my computer so instead of my normal list of Friday Favorites, I'm sending y'all HERE  and HERE instead.  I'll be posting my favorites there throughout the day along with the rest of the Daily Deals I find and I'll be posting them to the Deals Blog as well.  (I've been slacking on the Deals Blog lately.  I'm going to make sure I do it right tomorrow for those of you who don't do FB.)

But if you ARE a Facebooker, don't forget to check the deals that have been posted the past day or two in the Facebook Group as well!  I posted some good ones yesterday. ;)

As for tonight's plans it's either a movie OR...

Friday night vibes... especially that messy bun!  #enjoy #fridaynight #friyay #vibes #mood #messybun
