Who else is wishing they could start the weekend all over again?! 🙋🏻‍♀️ The inner Elvis fans inside us were like 😆🙌🏻 all weekend long thanks to our stay at @guesthousegraceland, an Elvis Presley-themed hotel only blocks away from The King’s famous Memphis home!
//
The Guest House at Graceland had personal touches dotted throughout that any true EP fan would recognize. Like the lightening bolt on the headboard ⚡️⚡️ is from Elvis’ bands’ logo & means “Taking Care of Business ... in a Flash!” 🕺🏼🎶

“Stop, look, & listen, baaaaaaby.” 🎶🎵 - Elvis Presley. We’re staying at @guesthousegraceland in Memphis this weekend & this Elvis-themed hotel has had The King of Rock n’ Roll’s classic tunes spinning in my head ever since we checked in!

Stumbling upon secret gardens is my favorite pastime! 🌸🌷🌼 The grounds of The Hermitage (Pres. Andrew Jackson’s home in Nashville, TN) are just as impressive as the beautifully decorated & impeccably preserved interior of this antebellum mansion.
//
Tip: if you visit on a lovely day ☀️ you can rent picnic blankets from the cafe on site and have yourself a picnic on the grounds. I know what I’m doing for lunch if ever I visit again!

A dress fit for summertime adventures!❤️☀️ We’re in Tennessee this week seeing family & friends all across the state & I couldn’t resist wearing this little gingham number strolling around my old stomping grounds of Knoxville! 💃🏻 It felt so good to see some of our favorite spots in K-Town again, drive through UTK’s campus and spot the Smokey Mountains off in the distance too! Ooooh visits back to the places you love sure are good for the soul!

These days, there are no rules when it comes to mixing & matching your shoes with your handbag. 👡💙👜 But call me old-school, because I love it when mine match perfectly! I recently grabbed these @splendidla summer slides from @saksoff5th & this embroidered @katespadeny satchel both on maaaaa-jor sale at @shopkatymills. I’m talking up to 70% off sale too! These neutral accessories can be dressed up & down for any and all occasions and will be perfect to take along on my trip to TN next week too!
//
This summer, you can create your own #endlesscombos with all of the shoes & accessories on sale from @ShopKatyMills. Head on over to my stories to see all of the goodies I was completely swooning over! I’m still debating on going back for that hot sauce tote … bc my addiction to hot sauce is real and CLEARLY I need a purse that proves it too…right!? #katymills #sponsored #houstonblogger

We had so much celebrating @mrs.rebeccarobinson’s Noah’s first birthday “on the farm” today! Annie not only rode a pony, but she hugged a goat, held a bunny and pet a chicken too. 🤗 I’d say it was a great Saturday night indeed! #texaslife #littlesebastian #texascowgirl #barnyardbirthday #ponyrides

Can all Fridays look like this!? 💙☀️💦#NeutrogenaPartner There’s no way I’ll sit in the sun without putting on a good dose of SPF first! And with my pale skin, SPF 50 is always on the menu. I tried out @Neutrogena’s hydro boost gel sunscreen this week and I have to say, it is soo refreshing! It almost feels cool to the touch when you apply it - & it doesn’t leave any greasy marks or white residue like many other sunscreens. {So you can put it on your face and not worry so much about looking like a ghost afterwards!👻}
//
Right now you can buy 2 #Neutrogena products & get 1 free at @UltaBeauty. Plus if you spend more than $20, there is chic water bottle gift with purchase up for grabs too! #summerstyle #rooftoppool #fridayvibes #houstonblogger #lonestarlgtravels

I had about a thousand things I needed to do today ... but I spent the morning poolside while Annie was in school instead! 😬 I think it was my first time to “lay out at the pool” {... like actually just lay there with a book in my hand and no cares ... in AGES!!} It was definitely relaxing but I sure missed chasing around my little nugget. #momlife
//
Ps: this printed maxi dress of mine is on the blog today! 💙 Makes a great pool party dress don’t ya think?! 💦 http://liketk.it/2wkfz #liketkit @liketoknow.it #summerstyle #wiw #ltkitbag #houstonblogger

Whenever I put on (or take off) my makeup, I feel like my facial expression goes into "hyper focus super serious mode." 🧐💙Don’t even get me started on the concentration putting on eye makeup requires me!! 😅#NeutrogenaPartner Luckily taking off said eye make-up is easier with @Neutrogena’s eye make-up remover lotion. 🙌🏻 It goes on soft & smooth & then I’ll finish my evening routine w/ @Neutrogena's foaming cleanser, hydro-boost multivitamin booster followed by be water gel moisturizer. After that, comes one of my favorite parts of the day! Time to dive back into my book until the wee hours of the night. (Ok, only if it’s a realllly good one📚!)
//
Right now you if you buy any 2 Neutrogena products, you can get 1 free from @UltaBeauty. Better yet, if you spend over $20 on Neutrogena goodies, you’ll get my “hello summer” water bottle as a gift with purchase! Now bring on bedtime, because I’m ready to see what’s happening next in my book! #skincareroutine #beautytips #ultabeauty #houstonblogger

There is no better feeling than peeking my head into the doorway of her little classroom at Mother’s Day Out and waiting until she catches my eye. Once she does, it’s like her whole demeanor changes and she just runs towards me in almost a panic to get to me as fast as she can. 😭😭😭 Oh those hugs afterwards are sooo good!!! ... Now saying goodbye each morning, that’s a different story. 😉 Hope she gives me this same welcome for several more years because I don’t think I can take it when the time comes where she doesn’t need me so bad! #mommusings

A boho sundress for lunch outside today! ☀️👗 We love taking the kids to citycentre for lunch because afterwards they can run around in the courtyard until they’re plum tuckered out! {Which means a longer nap time afterwards for the mamas! 😉}

Friday style. 💙 We woke up bright & early to beat the heat for a play date in the park. Comfy shoes are a must these days because it seems I end up playing {aka chasing} just as hard on the playground as she does! 😅 #momstyle #weekendvibes #whatwewore

Every season, I like to create a little bucket list for myself in the hopes to inspire me to get out & enjoy all that the season has to offer. ☀️💙🌴With summer officially kicking off tomorrow, my summer 2018 bucket list is live on the blog! Here’s to hoping I check each and everything off my list. Do you create seasonal or yearly bucket lists for yourself too!?

Dressed in our best to celebrate a baby-to-be today! 💕👶🏻💙 I may have spent the majority of the party chasing this girl all over the place, but I think this was hands down one of the most fun baby showers we’ve ever been to! For starters, it was held in a bar that sits inside a historic home next to a colorful beer garden. Need I say more?!

It seems like we always decide at the last minute that we’re going to head to the pool too & then suddenly it’s a mad dash to get there! 👙💦Good thing my @comfortivashoes sandals have a cushioned footbed & are as comfortable as they are stylish! I love how they look dressed up w/ jeans for a night out on the town too.
