One Year Blogiversary Giveaway!

Good morning friends! This week officially marks my one year blogging anniversary! I will be completely honest with you... I wasn't sure I'd make it a full year. This was just a fun little hobby that helped to fill the time when I was bored, but I have honestly come to really love it!

My very first ever blog post was June 26th, 2018 and it was about the books I was reading at the time. Pretty fitting since I'm still such an avid reader and love my monthly book posts! In order to celebrate 1 year of blogging, I am going to do a $50 gift card giveaway to either Amazon or Nordstrom, whichever the winner chooses! Keep reading to enter below.

What's Up Wednesday

Good Morning friends! This week officially marks my one year blogging anniversary and in order to celebrate I am doing a giveaway!
Nordstrom and Amazon are easily my two favorite places right now to shop so I figured what better way to celebrate my blog than to let a reader do a little shopping herself at one of my favorite places! The winner can choose which store they would like the gift card to. To enter the giveaway, click on the Rafflecopter at the bottom!

Friday Favorites-- Summer Fashion Edition

Good Morning and happy Friday! It feels so good to be home from our trip and back into the swing of normal life. This weekend we are hosting some friends who are visiting from out of town and have a weekend filled with fun. I am looking forward to spending some good quality time with these friends I don't get to see very often!

Today I'm linking up with Erika for Friday Favorites and sharing some of my recent favorite fashion finds. Starting with this dress:
I initially found this dress through an influencer I follow named Chelsea (@Chelseaolivia13-- see below). I mean how adorable does she look in this dress?? And for less than $20!

Vacation Recovery Mode

Good morning friends! We just got back from our trip to Colorado last night and are hosting guests this weekend... so we are in the midst of grocery shopping/laundry/grass mowing/cleaning the house craziness! I promise to fill you in on the details of our trip over the next week or two, but in the meantime here are a few of our favorite pictures from the trip. See you back here on Friday!

A Day in the Life of Us

Good morning friends! It has been 6 months since our last "Day in the Life" post and these are some of my absolute favorites to look back on. Look at how tiny my sweet girl was almost a year ago at this time:

Let's Look... Inside My Suitcase

Good morning! Today I am linking up for Let's Look and the theme is "Inside My Suitcase". This could not have come at a better time because we are currently on our first trip of the summer to Colorado. It was so easy to just snap some pictures as I packed!

Weekend Highlights

Good Morning and greetings from Colorado! Saturday morning our family woke up bright and early and headed to Steamboat Springs, Colorado for our first trip of the summer. I will fill you in on the details of our trip so far in a minute, but before we start, I want to remind you that today begins the first of the new link-up about Weekend Highlights. I love to read about what you all are doing over your weekends and figured the easiest way to get all of us together to catch up about our weekend was through a link-up! If you have a post about any of your recent weekend highlights, please add them to the link up at the bottom of this post. Can't wait to read them 😀

We have been super busy traveling this weekend so mine will be a quick post with many more pictures to come in the future.

Friday Favorites-- Book Edition-- May

Good morning and happy Friday!! I am officially on summer break and our first trip of the summer begins TOMORROW! Bright and early tomorrow morning we are headed to Steamboat Springs, Colorado and I am super pumped about it. I am looking forward to some hiking, "exploring" as Lily Grace calls it, and a lot of reading and relaxation. The perfect way to kick off summer!

Today I am linking up with Erika and instead of my typical Friday Favorites post, this week I am sharing the books I read in the month of May. Now, the books I read in May were good, but the books I read LAST month, were GREAT. If you are looking for some good summer reading books, I would check out my post about last month's books. You can not go wrong with any of them!

Monthly Goals-- June

Good morning friends!! Today is our last FULL day of school and my last day of actually teaching. Tomorrow we have a half day but thank God our principal fills that day up with some important and fun end of the year activities so the teachers don't have to worry about planning anything on this crazy day!
If you need me tomorrow I will be walking around somewhere looking exactly like this:

What I'm Priming

Good morning friends! It's time for another roundup of "What I've Been Priming". You know how some months you only buy a few things and then other months you go a little crazy?? This month was definitely one of the crazy months.. oops.
Luckily I order a bunch of stuff for school that all gets reimbursed, so I play the "that's for school" card a LOT!
