Thoughts For Thursday

Feb 1, 2018

I don’t know about y’all but I am so ready for some warmer weather.  I feel like it has been a really cold winter for Charleston standards!  I have been slowly buying a few pieces to save for when it warms up.  This chambray dress is a new purchase.  I love the embroidery detail and fit.  It is the perfect easy everyday dress.  The material is lightweight and super soft. It runs TTS, I am wearing a small.

Also loving this chambray one as well.

I had lots of questions about a recent lunch I made.  These turkey roll ups are super easy.  In this order layer them up: Kale, hummus, white cheddar cheese, blackened turkey, chopped tomatoes, banana peppers, whole grain mustard.  That is cottage cheese on the side, can you tell I love pepper?

I checked on Frances Moon the other night while she was sleeping and it brought back so many memories from when she was a baby.  She used to always sleep with her hands behind her head.  The leopard blanket she is sleeping with is the one I mentioned last week.  We are all obsessed with it, crazy soft!

See what I mean?? Heart melting.  Frances when she was baby and man this gives me baby fever.

3 face products I have been using and loving.  I tend to use different products in the winter because my skin is so dry.

ONE | Origins Face Mask

TWO | Fresh Vitamin Nectar Face Cream (I love the Vitamin Face Mask too)

THREE | Peter Thomas Roth 24k Gold Eye Patches

One of my favorite tees is back in stock!  Under $20 and a great basic everyday tee.  I sized up to a medium for a looser fit.

V Neck Tee

Another great tee and also under $20.  This was an outfit I wore this week.

Tee | Jeans | Ballet Flats

I wanted to show you guys a closer pic of my ballet flats because they are now on sale.  They are so comfortable, I wear them all the time.  I am going to snag the black while they are reduced!

Frances Moon dressed and ready with no where to go- haha.  She insisted on lipstick and sequins.

    totally curious here, what happened to your doggy? he looked so much like mine that recently passed away. Been following your blog for a while, although I rarely comment, I thought I would ask 🙂

        thanks for your reply, I’m glad he is well! you should consider adopting a 2 or 3 year old doggy. they are house broken, typically neutered, and still have that puppy appeal 🙂 Your kiddos are adorable! As so are you. Best of luck on your new adventure, everybody deserves happiness, and that is a valuable lesson you are passing on to your children.
