Sisters & Thanksgiving

November 27, 2014

Last night I was honored to host a second year of thanksgiving dinner for some of my family members whom I won’t be eating with on actual Thanksgiving day (like today) due to going to my husbands family get together today instead. Everything turned out perfectly except the Turkey (which we forgot to thaw days in advance) first timer- no judging! Maybe next year we will know better!

My lovely three sisters and I enjoyed a photo session, full of selfies, outfit shots and just pure sisterly love and goofiness. We all had to share this lovely tartan Zara blanket scarf of course. (You can view me styling this scarf here and here).

So today I leave you with some thanksgiving shots of some fun girliness. Tonight my three sisters and I hit up the malls for some deals, but until then time with family is a must.

What are you and your family doing for Thanksgiving?

Tie it in

November 18, 2014

zarablanketscarf
This has to be my favorite fall look yet, and you know why? I had to TIE IN my two new favorites to my already favorite long sleeved tee and leopard print shoes and that is my new plaid blanket scarf and H&M bow necklace.

I have been hunting for an affordable bow necklace for awhile now, and although this one was daintier then I would have liked I just am in love with it and it was only $4.95 at H&M. My lovely sister Annalise paid half of her $2 into it because she knew I loved it so much even though I had the money for it already- thanks sister!

This Zara blanket scarf is just the comfiest thing since snuggling up in bed with a book and warm tea. I am so in love with it I can’t wait to purchase another one and SOON!

Girls (moms) night out

November 10, 2014

Happy Monday! How was your weekend? Mine was wonderful and I will tell you why in a bit, but first I wanted to show you my latest obsession- this Zara plaid blanket scarf.

I believe it is DEFINITELY my new favorite scarf. It is warm and so versatile, I just can’t get enough of it.

I have already pinned a million (well not quite a million) ways to wear it too on pinterest. I cannot wait to style this scarf in multiple ways. Now on to my weekend and girl or mom talk.

I have come to learn that in every mom or wifes life there comes a time where you just want to be free of responsibilities or kids, this past Friday night it happened. For four hours I was kid-less and chose this time to spend with two of my sisters shopping. It was glorious to laugh at the wittiness and attitudes of my sisters (both speak their mind to much), as oppose to my shy personality. The quality time and good deals were also a plus.

Lately, I have been learning that moms often times feel guilty to have alone- enjoyment time, am I alone in this? I brought up this question to a group of other moms or single women alike at church the other night in Bible study and found I wasn’t alone. Even if you are not a mom, I also learned years ago that sometimes even wives with or without children need separation from the stress of life and just do things for self. Examples might be going to get a facial, go for a long drive, soak with a book and candles in a warm bath etc. I have been taking a few more hot baths lately, online shopping when I can because I have learned that I need to treat myself or the old saying comes true “If momma ain’t happy nobody is happy.”
Before I get to the details of the outfit I wore above for my girls night out. I would like to share some links of other blogging friends of mine and their take on taking a break as a mom. I enjoyed these and I hope you will too.
selfcare
Keri shared on how to start a habit each week of self-care in some form, and shared encouragement on this. You can find her post here.
GirlsNight
Keri also shared on how important it is to make time with friends without kids and some ideas on what to do with friends, like coffee, shopping, a painting or craft night, etc,. Read the post here.
whyevermomneedstotake
Elizabeth took time away from kids, phone and social media to enjoy a good hard copy book, coffee and making short term and long term goals. Read her post here.

What are some things you do for a girls night out? What do you like to do to treat yourself?

Outfit details: Blanket scarf: Zara//Earrings: ALDO//Bracelett: gift, thrifted//Coat: Merona (via Target, old)//Pants: St. Johns Bay (old)//Shoes: Merona (via Target, old)//Purse: Merona (via Target, old).
