What's Your Daily Uniform?! (Go To Wardrobe Basics)

Something I've been thinking a lot about, in terms of fashion, is how much my Daily uniform has changed over the last couple of years. My go to used to be short shorts, an oversized top and flip flops. Boots when I felt sassy.

I don't know if it's turning 30 or the changes kid number two inflicted on my body, but my new go to look is a little more of a put together soccer mom (who's totally not put together). So, I made a collection of my favorite day to day pieces. 

I'm a big fan of button downs tucked into a cute pair of jeans with a nice belt. Or a pair of leather leggings with a tunic and booties (sneakers for more casual days.) And then I love to pull it all together with simple accents of gold jewelry. Think delicate necklaces and bracelets.

To shop the pieces in this collage, just click on them. To see my full list of favorites, click HERE!

A lot of these pieces from my Favorites list are on sale right now. You'll definitely want to check out that white blouse on the top right. It's probably my most complimented piece of clothing. 

Now, I'm off to hit the hay! I hope your all having a great week! 


Fun and Easy Spring Treats!

So the Official Holiday season is over, obviously. But, I'm not going to lie... I think the spring and summer Holidays are my favorite. I especially love Easter and everything that comes with it. The weather here is usually right in the sweet spot before it gets unbearably hot. The spring clothes are adorable (for myself and the kids).

But, my absolute favorite thing is celebrating Easter with our Church. Every year we shut down our little section of North Blvd. and have a block party after the service with inflatables, pony rides and a huge Easter Egg hunt. Right in the heart of Downtown Baton Rouge.

So when, thinking about Easter and all of the festivities I wanted to come up with something new and cute to bring along as a treat for the kids! And what I came up with is just as fun to make with the kids as it is to eat.

This was actually inspired by some Valentine's day treats I made for Hudson's Class. For V Day, I made heart shaped crispy treats and drizzled pink colored white chocolate over them.

And since my kids have been begging to buy Easter eggs since the moment they hit the shelves, I thought what better way to put them to use early, than to use them as molds for their favorite treat!

-Melt 1/4 cup of butter in a large sauce pan
-Add 4 cups of Mini Marshmallows
-Stir until melted
-Stir in five cups of rice cereal
-Continue stirring until the cereal is completely coated with marshmallow mixture


-Clean Easter Eggs with warm soapy water
-Grease inside of eggs with butter or cooking spray
-Spoon the mixture into eggs until they are completely filled and close the eggs.

-While the Rice/Marshmallow Treats are cooling:
-Microwave 1 cup of Nestle White Chocolate Morsels 
-Stir until completely melted
-Add in food coloring of your choice
-Spoon chocolate into pastry bags 

-Gently remove treats from the plastic eggs and begin decorating with Chocolate.

OPTIONAL: If you want the eggs to be able to stand on their own you can either place some foil in the bottom of the plastic egg before filling it with the mixture. OR you can very gently flatten the bottom of the formed treat after you remove it from the plastic egg.

PRO TIP: Get your kids involved! My daughter probably loved making these even more than eating them. And that's saying a lot!

Spring Fashion Trends That Are On My Wishlist

Happy Sunday, Ladies! I'm feeling all of the springy feelings after this beautiful weekend we had in Louisiana. We spent last night at Alex Box with the kids and my brother and neice. It was the kids first time seeing an LSU game and it was so much fun! Hudson even got to take home a ball from the Pitching Coach! 


I just wanted to stop in today with a reallllllly quick post about what I'm loving for this spring and what has been sitting my shopping cart waiting for me to press the Checkout Button!

I'm specifically loving how Spring always brings the femininity! Give me all of the ruffles, florals and pastels! But, some of my other favorite trends are cinched waists, straw purses and silk scarves! (I've really been into tying my hair back with satin ribbons lately! It's so cute and youthful!)

I've thrown in all of the pieces I'm trying to decide between below. Just click on the items to check out the details!

Update On My 2018 Resolutions / Intentionality In My Diet

Hey Y'all! I hope this post finds you well and that your Monday was a little less hectic than mine! I'm just getting home for the day at 9:00 pm and I am ready to throw in the towel and crawl in my big bed! But, before I do that I wanted to stop in and catch you up a bit on some of my New Year's Resolutions

You're probably thinking "It's only been two months, how much is there to update?" Well, have you given up on yours yet? Or thought about it?.... Exactly. So, my main goals were to sleep more, take charge of my health and my relationship to money. But, I also really wanted to start paying more attention to what I was eating and drinking.

SLEEP: Until this week, I'm proud to say I have been doing much better with sleeping. I've been making it a point to get in bed before midnight. (Previously I was going to sleep at 1 or 2 and getting up for work at 6 or 7). I've had to sacrifice a little bit of my "me" time. But, that has just caused me to spend the bit that I get more wisely.

EXERCISE:  I'm not going to lie, guys. I've completely fallen off the grid here. I am hoping to get back into it this week. I have however, been playing outdoor with the kids more, so I'm not completely inactive.

MONEY: My money goals have fallen a little bit on the middle of the spectrum. I'm not doing horribly. But I could be doing better. I talked about it in a recent post which you can find HERE.

TRAVEL: This one hasn't had a chance to come to fruition yet... check back in the Summer.

NUTRITION: Being intentional about what I eat and drink was another big goal. I haven't been 100% successful with Mardi Gras and Valentine's day being right on top of each other. Let's just say that February has been a month of sugar. But, I have been getting better at paying attention to where my meat, eggs and dairy are coming from. I've been trying my best to stick to organic and pasture raised products.

It's been getting easier and easier to find organic and healthy items at the grocery store, but trying to find foods from farms that treat their animals with care, not so much. However, I have noticed recently that Wal Mart is stepping up their game a bit. I've been able to find a handful of pasture raised items, including this Horizon Organic Grassfed Milk! I know I don't have to sell any of you on Horizon, I think most of us mom's are already fans. But, I love that I can now get something like this without having to go to a specialty store and paying a million bucks.

As an aside, after I found out about this, I was doing a little research. And I saw there was a review on the site saying this was the best milk they've ever tasted. I honestly chuckled a little bit, because it's milk... like how good can it be?! But, then I tasted it .... and it actually is really delicious!

You should check it out the next time you're at Wal Mart and head HERE for a $1 Ibotta Rebate!

So now, it's your turn! Let me know how you're doing on your Resolutions! 

My Favorite Hairstyle

Ever since College, I have longed for wavy, beachy hair. (Hence my recent foray into the blonde world.) And over the last decade I've come up with various methods of achieving that style. There was that time when I would SOAK my hair in hair spray before curling it. Or when I would sleep with it tied into a million little buns (very uncomfortable). And I've tried every kind of curling tool possible, marcel irons, diffusers, curling wands... you name it.

But over the last year or two, I've realized that the look I've been killing myself for, was actually staring back at me in the mirror the morning after I curled my hair. The 'Second Day Curl' is me in a hairstyle.

My  current way to get the look is by curling my hair with a strong hairspray and then brushing through the curls after giving them just a few minutes to cool down. If I find that I need to add a little more dimension back into the look, then I will use a texturizing agent and scrunch up the ends a bit.

[I use to use my husband's SUPER stiff hairspray when doing this and it was absolutely gorgeous until I got to the 'brushing' step. Breaking up that spray with a brush would leave a white residue all over my hair that looked like dandruff. Insert disgusted emoji here.]

My hair is very thin... but still very heavy because there is SO much of it. And I've found this has always made it difficult for my hair to hold a curl.

With that said, my ideal hairspray is something powerful enough for the weight of my hair but light enough not to weigh down my thin strands. So when I was asked to try out TRESemme's new compressed micro missed hair sprays I was obviously intrigued.


-They use superfine micro-mist particles that penetrate through the top layer of hair, providing deeper coverage.

-The new thinner cans result in a more targeted, efficient spray that comes out softer for a light and flexible hold.

-The mist uses 50% less gas per spray than other 11-ounce cans and the smaller cans contribute to a  reduction in CO2. So you can feel better about your impact on the environment.


-Thoroughly wash and dry hair with a small amount of volumizing mousse.
-Seperate hair into large sections and curl in 2 inch segments.
-Before moving from one of the larger sections to the next, lightly mist that section with TRESemme's Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Extend
-When the hair is completely curled, comb through with your fingers or a wide toothed comb.
- Spray an all over light mist of TRESemm√© Compressed Micro Mist Hairspray Texture
- Gently scrunch your curls in an upward motion for a beachier vibe.


-After curling each strand, hold the hair in the curled position for a second while it cools down. This will help to set the curl better
-Always curl the sections near your face back and away from you, to open up your face.
-Alternate the Curling direction through the rest of your hair to give a more tousled look.

The New Micro Mist line also has a BOOST and a SMOOTH option for a total of four different styling needs. And you can find them all at your Local Wal Mart in the hair care aisle!

Let me know if you try them.

Also, I would love to know what is your Favorite hairstyle?! Tell me in the comments below! And I'll see you next week!

Random Ramblings, Materialism, Parenting & Upcoming Event

Hey y'all! I don't have anything major to sell to you or talk about today. But, I felt like it was time to stop in and just chat. A little free thinking, train of consciousness kind of blog.

At church yesterday, our pastor introduced this year's theme for our lenten studies; "Identity". It's a common topic in Christian circles. Where do we get our identity from. Are we our jobs? Are we our social status? Are we our relationships? 

Personally, I want my identity to be that I am a "Child of God", "Belonging to Christ", "Saved Sinner"...So how do I make that happen?

It's realllly hard (at least for me) to live under that moniker 24 hours a day. I spend so much of my thought life consumed by Babies, Instagram, Money... And my thought life dictates how I act in my real life. Do I live my life as a daughter of God or as a blogger trying to climb the social media ladder?

So that's where I am today or rather, this year...  I'm trying to train myself to allow God to be my purpose in every area of my life, not just in my prayer and church life.

I'm not only wanting this for my own benefits. I've begun to see a sad side effect of my materialism on my children. Which is really disheartening. I mean.. I'm not ruining them by any means. But, I have for sure passed on my love for stuff to them. And I would rather my love for Jesus prevail as the major influence, in their lives.

I'm grateful for Jamy in this regard. I won't say anything to inflate his ego, in case he's reading this. But, he is definitely a wonderful role model to have around, when I find myself drifting down a material obsessed hole.

There is one area of my life where I feel confident in my Christian identity. That being in social settings. Probably because I've had a lot of practice feeling awkward and out of place. So, I've had to force myself to get over that by trusting in God. Maybe I put my foot in my mouth or did something completely embarrassing. But, that does not effect the fact that I am unconditionally loved by the only being that matters, right? So when I am tempted be nervous, I just remind myself of this and shrug the rest off.

So, speaking of social situations that would make me nervous. I will be hosting an event with some of the bloggers I admire most, next week. It's going to be a fun shopping party for my local readers. There's even a chance to win some free gift cards and swag. You can check it out HERE.

And I'll be over here focusing on my true identity and how I don't have to be nervous about a public event! ;)

Let me know if you can make it!!

New Ways to Use Coffee Creamer (Awesome Recipe Substitutions)

Happy Day, Ladies and Gents! We are just getting home from celebrating Holland's birthday and I wanted to share a couple of accidental recipes that my family has fallen in love with.

I've mentioned in a few recent posts that I've been cutting back on my Caffeine intake. Which means less coffee. But, I have a ton of coffee creamer in my refrigerator waiting to be used! So, I started  getting a little creative and amping up some of my go to treats!

Cinnamon Roll Twists With Caramel Icing

For a little twist (pun intended) on our Saturday Morning favorite, I've ditched the pre made icing that comes with our cinnamon rolls and started making my own. Not only is it fluffier and richer, I've been having fun with customizing the flavors. My current favorite is this icing recipe that gives you just a touch of caramel flavor.

Fluffy Caramel Icing:
4 Tbsp Softened Unsalted Butter
2 Cups of Powdered Sugar
Approximately 3/4 Cups of Left Field Farm's Caramel Coffee Creamer (give or take for desired consistency)

Mix together until it's a fluffy icing and use to top your favorite Cinnamon Roll recipe. (We do store bought). I like to unroll them and braid two or three of them into a larger pastry.

When, I am in the mood for something a little fruity, I am always on board for a quick smoothie. And I love adding in some dairy for calcium and a thicker consistency.

Deliciously Easy Smoothies:
The one we enjoyed today was so simple it can hardly be called a recipe, haha! I just threw Four Strawberries, 1 Banana, 1 Cup of Left Field Farms Vanilla Coffee Creamer and some Ice into my blender. I didn't even get to finish mine because the kids kept stealing it from me! Which I was fine with, since there were no artificial sweeteners or ingredients.

So here are a few reasons why I was pumped to team up with Left Field Farm's for all of my coffee, pastry and smoothie needs:
They are Non GMO-Project Verified
They make their products From cows not treated with rBST 
There are no Artificial Flavors
& Their products are made with real cream and real sugar

Plus, you don't have to drive to a specialty store or spend loads of money for these benefits. They're right there at Wal Mart with all of your other Groceries. And I should have a special Ibotta rebate for you this coming week, that way you can get the most out of your purchase!

Until then you can check out all of their flavors at your local Wal Mart.

Before you go, I would love to know if you have any favorite recipe substitutions or have a favorite food blogger that is always sharing recipe hacks! Let me know with a comment or shoot me a message.

Hope you have an awesome Weekend!


Dear Husband, This Is What I Want For Valentine's Day.... (Real Talk + Gift Guide)

Dear Jamy (and anyone else reading this),

For this Valentine's Day, I would like to feel 25 again. So far, 31 has been amazing. And the 6 years between then and now have brought more joy than I could have ever imagined. But, the older our youngest kid gets the more my "New Mom Fog" is beginning to lift from my brain.

I'm no longer sleep deprived (well not as much as I used to be).  I can comfortably fit into most of my clothes again. And I feel like my personality is starting to come back.

So this February, I would love nothing more than to ship the kids off to a grandparent and pretend to be a careless 20 something again.

Here is your checklist to help facilitate this dream night for your wife:

- Lock Down a Babysitter

- Give me two hours to waste in front of my mirror with a curling iron and lipstick.
- Let's pre-game a bit. (Perhaps a beer or two before we head out.)
- Buy movie tickets to something that doesn't have talking animals in it.
- Grab some margaritas from a questionable whole in the wall

- Sing (Scream) at the top of our lungs to a a song no one under 20 knows.

- Grab Taco Bell in the early hours of the morning

- Stay up late watching something with talking animals in it. But like... on Adult Swim.
- Regret the Taco Bell
- Pass Out
-Wake me up at 10
- Take me out for doughnutsI'm absolutely positive that there is no better Valentine's gift than this. Followed by a warm welcome back to real life from the kiddos!

However...... if you insisted on buying me something, I'll settle for any of these:

It's been a few weeks since I last wrote about my struggles with anxiety and panic attacks. And I thought for those of you that may be interested I would do a quick update. If no one's interested, then this will just be a little outlet for me to write what I'm thinking and I'll catch y'all in the next post! haha.

For the last six months I've had anywhere from a mild to a severe panic attack, every month. These attacks and the effects could last anywhere from 30 minutes to 48 hours. So far, January is the first month that I haven't experienced one in a very long time.

The first things I decided to change and the first things that began to help were changes in my sleep, diet and time management.
I completely cut out coffee and soda for the entire month. I'm now back to about 4 cups of coffee a week. But that seems to be a sustainable amount of caffeine for me.
I also cut out alcohol. So far only two beers this entire month.
I do my best to go to bed earlier.
And I spend my evening free time in the word and prayer, rather than listening to My Favorite Murder. (Truthfully, cutting out true crime stuff was harder than the caffeine.)

Caffeine, Sugar, Alcohol and Fatigue are all well known anxiety causing factors.
Also, the media we intake, whether it be social or crime dramas, has an effect on our nerves and Psyche even though we may not realize it.

The word in Phil 4:8 has become a great tool to filter my thoughts and hobbies through.

Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

If whatever I'm thinking about, listening to, or watching doesn't meet these requirements, then I try to cut it out.


I have cut back on sponsored opportunities and put more focus into content that is solely produced because I feel like putting it out there. The decline in deadlines and demands has given me a lot of relief and taken off any element of stress that I had associated with this space.

Reading the bible every night has been a huge help in calming my soul. It also helps me to reconnect with God each day and focus on what is true about my life and my mind.

I listen to my favorite praise and worship music in the evenings while I prepare dinner and do the dishes. this helps me to wind down and relax a bit, rather than feel stressed about the day.

I tore through this Max Lucado book, Anxious For Nothing.

It's an extremely easy read. And while it focuses more on daily stresses and not so much on my particular brand of neurosis, it is still filled to the brim with reminders of God's love and how anxiety was not meant for us.

I made some adjustments to my daily medications which have been a big help. (We adjusted birth control and anxiety drugs)

I see a Christian Counselor once a month. I've always been a big fan of therapy. But sitting with a therapist that is also a Christian is a huge help. My faith is what shapes my world view and how I see my place in it. So when trying to figure out my life, it only makes sense to include God.

Trying to take control of my anxiety. When things start to get a little crazy in my head, I immediately start to work through what I'm thinking and why it's making me feel anxious. But, it has become a bit of a problem, when the same thought keeps popping up over and over again. I find myself trying to repress it so hard that I don't even realize my chest is tightening and I'm clenching my jaw. Essentially I'm just working myself up.

Yes, I still think it's good when I acknowledge a thought and walk it through Phil 4:8 filter. But once, I've done that a couple of times for the same thought it begins to stress me out even more that I can't stop thinking about it.

There is a chapter in Lucado's book, where he talks about the fact that Jesus has already overcome the world, including our fear. So why not rest in that fact and allow him to be in control. It is in essence to "let go and let God". But he puts it as letting Jesus answer the door, when anxious thoughts come knocking. It's silly, but literally thinking "Jesus, can you get that", has been a helpful little mantra for me, when I'm having trouble dropping something.

And that's the jist of it, right now. I'll continue to check back in here when things change or when I find something new and helpful! Let me know if you have any good tips or experience with this stuff!

Happy Tots. Happy Mornings.

A while back, I shared my tips for a smooth morning routine. I'm not going to lie... not every morning is as smooth as that post would make you believe. Because, Toddlers. 

While I can do everything in my power to prep for a busy morning. I never know when someone will have an unexpected dirty diaper as we're walking out the door. Or when my sweet loving angels will turn play time into World War Three over something extremely [un]important like a sticker.

But I still try my best to keep our mornings happy. Here's How:

1. Set The Tone:
While you can't prevent inconveniences, you can prevent a bad atmosphere. Your vibe will set the mood for the morning and perhaps the rest of the day. That means you should do your best not to lose your patience (guilty) with your kids, your spouse, the dog or the coffee machine. Take deep breaths and work through your morning one moment at a time. Having a calm/relaxed approach will actually help you think and work more efficiently to get out the door in a timely manner. And your kids will thank you for it. They hate those grumpy/rushed car rides just as much as you do.

2. Ask Your Kids Questions: This is something I love to do in the morning in order to get their brains going. I'm not talking about "What are you going to do at school today?" Questions.. Or anything else they can answer with a quick "I don't know" or "Notthhhiinnnnnggggg".

Ask them something specific; "Hey, did your friend Jane say anything silly at lunch yesterday?". Ask them to help you with something; "I'm having a  hard time remembering what I put in your lunch yesterday, do you remember?....." or something silly; "....was it a shoe?" You know you're child best. So get creative and think of ways to get them talking and laughing.

3. Take The Time For A Healthy Breakfast: If it were up to my kids they would eat nothing but toaster pastries every morning. And there's nothing wrong with a good pastry in my opinion. But, we have to work in moderation, right? So if your kids love a little something sweet like mine you can always try to balance out their morning meal time with a delicious yogurt!

My kids have been loving Happy Baby products since they were little and now that they have launched Happy Tot Yogurt at Target, we've been keeping our fridge stocked. (Between myself and the kids we go through a lot of yogurt in this house).

I love the Happy Tot Yogurt because they're made with Vitamin D Whole Milk, Probiotics and have no added sweeteners or GMO's. They also have a great flavor range. But, my kids seem to love the Apple and Pear!

 4. Be Prepared: An old but good one. There aren't many de-stressors or time savers that work like getting ready the night before. If your kids can be difficult about getting dressed, maybe ask them to help you pick something out each night. That might cut down on some of the day of issues. Do the same with their lunches and homework.

What are your tips to keeping your mornings smooth and happy?! Please  let me know in the comment section! And don't forget to check out the Happy Tot Yogurt on your Target Run!

A New Way to Remove Makeup (Without Soap!)

Hey Y'all! Happy Friday! Who's excited for the weekend?! I know I am! And I'm so ready to get out of the house! We've been iced in here for a week now. With no school to keep the kids entertained! Luckily, I had a lot of fun packages arrive in the mail to keep me busy! One of them being this thing I saw on Facebook, called the Face Halo.

So, the concept of this, is that it's a super soft cloth made with very fine threads. You are supposed to simply wet it and rub the makeup off of your face. No soap or cleanser needed!


The claim is that the Face Halo fibers are so fine they are able to properly pick up and trap makeup/dirt/oils without redepositing it somewhere else on your face.


Well, the short answer is Yes. Yes, it does. But, I have a full video for you to watch my first impression of it and how it performs.

You can grab 3 of them for $22 HERE. Each one is meant to last 200 washes in the washing machine, so I think that price more than pays for itself in comparison to makeup wipes or micellar water!

What do you think? I'd love to know in the comment section!
