Work to Weekend + A Funny Story

April 13, 2017

MY DETAILS: TOP | JEANS | HEELS | PURSE | EARRINGS | SUNGLASSES | WATCH | BRACELETS (HERE & HERE)

SID’S DETAILS: BLAZER (SAME ONE, DIFFERENT COLOR HERE & HERE) | SHIRT | JEANS | SHOES | SUNGLASSES | WATCH

This past weekend while family was in town visiting, we got on the subject of our college days and about how much we hustled, haha. When I first met Sid, he already owned a home close to our college campus that he used as a rental home. I thought this was sooo interesting and amazing and after we were married, we saved & saved and worked our butts off until we were able to buy our second rental property. Well, our first rental property didn’t have a sprinkler system installed, and we were moving to Alaska for the summer for a summer sales job for Sid, so we had to have one installed. Being the handy man + saver that my husband is, he said that we would install it ourselves (my husband is super handy and actually remodeled most of our home-see that post here). My husband, his friend, my father-in-law, and I went to the house one Saturday morning and got to work. At first I was so not into it. I had never done that type of physical labor before and honestly, I wasn’t too happy about it. After a while, the guys started to get tired and we ran into some problems getting the Read More

Tatum’s Birth Announcements With Minted

April 11, 2017

Something that is so important to me with living away from family, is sending out birth announcements. I love that friends and family near and far can get a little glimpse of our sweet babies. Almost three years ago, I ordered Truman’s birth announcements from Minted. When Tatum was born, I knew I would order hers from there, as well. Now that the newborn craziness is calming down a little, I finally had the time to order Tate’s announcements. Minted has THE best selection and makes it SO easy, you guys! I simply got on their site, chose the card that I loved (this one), and customized it. I basically order everything from Minted~ from birth announcements, to invites, to Christmas cards. Minted makes it super easy by allowing you to create a profile with them, which is the best thing ever because all of my addresses are saved to my profile, and they even give you the option to order the envelopes pre-addressed! It is a HUGE time saver! It literally took me maybe 15 minutes to design + order my cards… AMAZING! If any of you new mamas are looking for a place to order newborn announcements, or any other announcement or invitation, Minted is definitely the place! XOXO

I received this product in exchange for my honest and unbiased review. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Tatum’s Blessing

Heavenly Father blessed us with the sweetest treasure, to love & hold & keep forever.

We adore our beautiful angel, sent to us straight from Heaven. She has brought such a sweet spirit into our home and filled our hearts with an even greater love and happiness as a family of four! A couple of Sundays ago my amazing husband gave our sweet Tatum the sweetest blessing! I will forever remember and cherish his words and hopes and prayers for our little girl. I’m grateful for a wonderful husband who leads our family and provides the best example- Him blessing our babies will always be some of my favorite memories. One thing that especially stood out that I loved that he said a couple of times was that he hopes Tatum will always have a personal relationship with our Heavenly Father and that she will always know that He LOVES her! Isn’t it crazy to think that He loves our children even more than we do?! I too pray that Tatum will always know her worth, that she will always know her parents love her SO much, that she will have her own personal testimony of our Savior and Redeemer, Jesus Christ, and follow Him, & that she knows and loves her Father in Heaven and live her life in a way that is pleasing to Him.

It was an incredibly special day that we were able to share with both sets of our parents and with some of our close friends! We had a little luncheon at our home afterwards in honor of this special day, so that’s what some of these photos are from 🙂 My childhood friend (who is AMAZINGLY talented) Whitney Perdue hand painted this gorgeous banner for the blessing. I based everything else off of that and went with the theme “Our Sweetest Blessing”. I kept it simple with white and glass serving bowls (most found at HomeGoods or TJ! I love looking for serveware at both.) I didn’t want to go crazy with decor, so I just used lots of pretty flowers to add the perfect pops of color and spring vibes. I loved how it turned out! I will try and link as much as I can below:

SID’S DETAILS: SUIT (ALMOST SOLD OUT- EXACT SUIT JACKET IN DIFFERENT COLORS HERE & HERE + PANTS HERE & HERE) | WHITE SHIRT | SHOES | BELT (SIMILAR) | WATCH | SUNGLASSES

If you couldn’t tell by the title, I have a special guest on today’s blog post. I just have to give a special shout out to my main man (@thompsywhompsy) for being the best sport and always my biggest supporter (you’re the real MVP, babe!!) Seriously, this guy does it all. He can cook, clean, landscape, fix absolutely anything, he’s brilliant, he’s an amaaaazing dad and devoted and loving husband….I could go on and on. But seriously, I am so grateful for him and all of his outstanding qualities.  Heavenly Father definitely broke the mold when He made my hubby!

A question that I often get from wives is where we like to shop for Sid. I always immediately reply with “NORDSTROM“! Of course, you all know that most of my clothes are from there, but we love Nordstrom when shopping for Sid’s clothes because the selection is amazing. There is NOTHING you can’t find there, seriously. Whether shopping for casual wear or work wear, there are so many great brands that Nordstrom carries! Sid has his “go-to” brands and items that he loves from there, like this white button up! He has three of this exact shirt because he loves it so much and for the affordable price, it’s nice and easy to have one clean and available to wear at any time. The slim fit is extremely flattering and the quality is awesome (especially for the price). And we love that the shirt can be worn for work AND for a more casual day/night. Super versatile and a must have staple for your mans closet. He had never tried the Topman suits from Nordstrom, but he is soo glad he finally did! He loves the way that the slim fit suit looks and feels. Also, we can NOT get over the price! TOO good! I had kept nagging him to try the Topman suits because I always love the way they look on the models and he kept saying there is no way the fit and quality would be nice for the price aaaand now he is eating his words…haha! But obviously we are both happy…I was right about the fit and quality and he’s happy he’s looking good in a great priced suit 😉 & lastly, these shoes are his favorites for work, church, date nights, etc. They are a high quality shoe and very comparable to a high end, designer Italian shoe at a fraction of the cost. We highly recommend this super versatile shoe…it is my fav for him to wear for any occasion! All in all, Nordstrom is THE destination for men’s work apparel & shoes. It’s affordable and has the best selection, so there’s absolutely NO reason your man shouldn’t be looking good 🙂
