Memorial Day

Top: Marshall's
Pants: Old Navy
Sandals: Old Navy
Necklaces: Nestled and my flea market bracelet worn as a necklace

I'm pretty sure I ate my body weight in watermelon over the weekend. And I'm even more sure I looked like a watermelon after all of the other delicious food I ate. But it was all part of a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. I am blessed! I hope yours was wonderful too!

Skipping Stones

Top: Old Navy
Skirt: Gap
Belt: Target
Shoes: DSW
Bracelets: thrifted

Our after-church activity yesterday (before our 4-hour nap - oh how I love Sundays) consisted of basking in the beautiful sunshine in our backyard, and skipping stones on the pond. Well, more like chucking stones.

I just like the ker-plunk noise.

Oh, did I forget to mention I'm married to the incredible hulk?

Date Night

Jacket: Old Navy
Skirt: Old Navy
Belt: Target
Shoes: DSW
Nails: Revlon - White on White

Date night with the hubs calls for a casual jean jacket, flirty skirt, and spring wedges.
A frizzy hair day calls for a messy side braid.
And this morning calls for coffee... lots of coffee. And a cookie. (Maybe two.)

p.s. Head on over to Smart and Savvy Style and you might see something familiar. :) Heather is a fashion blogger, and she's featuring me on her blog this week! Today, she's wearing a necklace from my Etsy shop, tomorrow she'll be doing a Q&A with yours truly, and Thursday... a giveaway! More details about that coming later, so stay tuned!

Mint Green Jeans

Jeans: Target
T-shirt: Target
Necklace: my own design
Sandals: Old Navy

I have a track record of not being able to find jeans that fit over my huge curvy hips. So when I found a pair at Target that fit like a glove, I snatched them up... in two colors! One in mint, and another in an apricot-orange. Thank you, Target!

Etsy orders!

Just another reason to love Target... mint and orange pants. (Confession: I bought BOTH.)

My new love... where have you been all my life?

The grill master at work.

None of these are real Insta-gram photos. I don't even own an iPhone... nope, just a prehistoric LG flip phone. (Pixlr-o-matic is my new BFF.)

Also, how sweet is this? I put this little note in Jesse's lunch this morning:

And then found this one sticking out of my purse when I went to leave the house:

A good love note just makes my day week. :)
