best of june (and what's to come).

Here we are, another month gone and I'm still over here trying to figure out how the days are going by so fast! Does it ever slow down? I think Summer is even worse because we are constantly out and about doing something!

Here's what we've been up to, what you shopped and more about exciting new content coming to the blog! 


June started off with a visit to California to visit my family. Tayler and I went solo on this trip (I wanted to take advantage of her last free flight before she turned 2) to spend some time with my family while Wes was working. We had great pool weather, and she got to spend time with her little cousin who is only a few months older than her. Of course, they fought the entire time about who got to use which toys, but the sweet moments outweighed the bad. It was a nice little getaway spending time with them and unplugging for a bit. 

We also found out while we were in Cali that our remodel would be starting a few weeks earlier than anticipated. This meant we had to scramble to get a moving van, movers, and figure out where the heck we were going to stay since our rental wasn't available until July. Luckily, we managed to get it all figured out and are lucky enough to have fabulous friends who let us crash for a bit. So far, they have done most the demo to the entire house down to the studs, taken off the roof, poured the foundation for the new addition and started framing. It's so crazy to see how  much they have done in such a short amount of time, although the finished project still feels SO FAR AWAY.

Our little Tayler Lou turned 2 years old! I can't believe I have a two year old already. I think it's time to start thinking about a sibling! In the midst of the craziness, we decided to throw a BBQ for close friends to celebrate the last party in the house before we moved out and it was actually nice becuase we didn't have to worry about doing a massive deep clean after the party was over! 

what's to come

As I mentioned in last week's blog post, Thursday is the first day of Early Access for the Nordstrom Anniversary sale and I'll be sharing all the must have items and trends with you all first thing Thursday morning! And don't forget to scroll to the end of this post for a chance to win a $600 gift card to shop the sale!

I also took a poll on Instagram after meeting with a marketing coach to talk about blog content and I want to make my posts more consistent and timely for all you following! So, here's what you can expect in the next week or so. Blog posts will happen EVERY Monday and Wednesday. Monday will be a style post (either wardrobe or home) and Wednesday will be a lifestyle post (anything from travel, to motherhood, or whatever I'm feeling passionate about). I think this will help streamline the blog and get you guys on a good cadence in knowing what to expect from me. I'm excited to start producing more content!
