Just like in college I had my class uniform which consisted of citizen of humanity jeans, a juicy zip up, and black booties I now have realized I have a new "mom" uniform. I refuse to be a mom that just wears workout clothes. I've always loved getting dressed up, although my lifestyle doesn't allow for that very often I've figured out a new style that works for me and my daily life. Here is my go to outfit that I own in a few different color combinations.
Summer is upon us, so time to get outside and get your workout on. My girlfriend and I have been doing weekly challenges. Last week we did 100 burpees a day for 10 days. It was a great way to keep moving throughout the day. Most days I'd break them up into 10 or 20 and do them throughout the day, but a few days I incorporated them into a workout. It was a good one so I figured I'd write it down it is a great workout cause you don't need any equipment or alot of time. So lace up your tennis shoes, head outside in your backyard and give this workout a try.
Back with another romper this week. This one is more of a going out one. I thought I'd try and show my favorite evening romper look. This coral color is so bright and vibrant and is the perfect color for those hot summer nights. I love the light weight material of this romper and the sleeve length if you do get a little chill in the evenings
We have been oven-less for about 2 months at our rental house, so I have gotten creative with the crockpot and the BBQ. Like everyone else I use our oven a lot, I only really knew how to make soups and a few other little things in the crockpot. But thank goodness for pinterest I have been able to find some great slow cooker recipes. This is one of my favorites, I've made it a few times and tweaked it to make it easy and simple!
Off the should tops are all the craze so I decided to take a stab at wearing one. I took these pictures then it was 100 degrees outside, so we opted for them inside. I also had planned on wearing different pants, but due to the weather shorts were a must. These are my favorite summer shorts though so it was a perfect time to share them with you as well.
This post is inspired by my mother so I felt like this picture was fitting. I swear every time I call my Mom to ask for advice, her advice always includes something about lemons. Here is how the conversation goes, "Mom, there is a stain on Leo's onesie but I can't bleach it what should I do". My mom replies, "put a lemon on it." "Hey Mom, I still have that dark line running down my stomach from pregnancy." My mom, "put lemon on it. "Mom, I have a sore throat." My mom, "gargle with lemon water." You see her answer for everything is lemons. So in honor of her I decided to put together all the uses I use lemons around my house for!
I've been in the Tri-Cities these past few weeks and have been loving the summer weather. It is the perfect opportunity to wear my new clothes I got while I was in Arizona. Last summer I was pregnant so my summer wardrobe needed some major revamping this year. I am so happy the romper trend is still around, mostly cause it is so easy to pull off for an effortless and comfortable look.
I"m showing off another one of my vacation outfits. This is my classic resort wear look. I think white shorts, a linen shirt, some flat sandals pair well with sunshine and champagne. We were lucky enough to escape one night for happy hour while my parents babysat and we even were able to sneak in a few photos in between glasses of champagne.
BBQ season is here and I couldn't be more excited that the grill is up and running. I am not a big beef eater, but my husband is, so occasionally I surprise him when he comes home from work with a big steak. I came up with this delicious flank steak recipe (and it is so pretty). This is the perfect recipe to serve to WOW your BBQ guests.
Recently we took our first vacation as a family of 3. We figured we have to rip the bandaid off and start traveling right away with a baby. Vacations with a 3 month old isn't the type of vacation I was used to taking, but nonetheless we still had a great time. Since we were in Arizona I figured it was the perfect time to wear some of my bright new spring purchases!
