Hi.

Thanks for stopping by my little corner of the internet.  Originally from RI, but now living in Texas, I love to share ideas on fashion, fitness, and life in Texas.

Life Lately

Good Morning and Happy Monday!  Here we are, the second week of April and Easter is this coming Sunday.  I found the cutest dress at Loft.  And it was on sale 50% off - woohoo!  I love a good bargain.  This last week was a doozy - so busy that this is a pretty short life lately post as we both had a crazy work week.

I picked this up last week and I am LOVING it.  This is the Becca Undereye Brightening Corrector.  You just dab a little on under your eye before you put on concealer.  It just makes you look more awake and more refreshed.  I love it.  You could also let it double as a highlighter as well.

Monday was a sick day.  I was just nauseous and feeling blech.  I took up residence on the couch and slept for most of the day.

This work week was a doozy.  Phillip worked a 60 hour week, I had a jam packed week of meetings.  You can tell by my eyes that I was just tired. 

This one was tired too.  I love how she drapes her paws over the front of the couch.  I love my sweet, daffy girl.

My new favorite beverage.  Premier Protein, caramel flavor + 4oz cold brew concentrate = delicious, protein packed coffee.  Way fewer WW smartpoints than anything from Starbucks.  So so tasty.

Who is ready for summer???  I know I am and I was definitely feeling it on Friday.  I had no meetings, so it was a great day for dressed up jeans and an even better reason to break out my new Poppy necklace.  I just love the bright pops of color.  This necklace will be on repeat all summer. #pinkyswear

I had weigh in on Saturday at my Weight Watchers meeting and I was down 2.4 pounds!  Woohoo!  I am now 18 pounds away from goal.  I can't tell you how motivating it is to have a good week.  It makes you want to push through and keep doing better.  I've already meal planned for the week and am off to a good start.  I am determined to have another good week this week.  I have some travel coming up this summer and I want to look and feel my best.

We had a birthday party Saturday night and I was aiming for casual and comfy.  I think I hit the mark with this outfit.  How cute is this J.Crew Factory dalmatian tee?  I thought it was just adorable.  And right now it' $21.50!  Go get yourself one!

So who were we celebrating?  This lady right here (in the middle).  That's Billie-Jo, bridesmaid extraordinaire and amazing friend.  She and my cousin Jim moved to Texas in 2012 and I am so glad that we are sharing this crazy Texas adventure together.  She loves living here just as much as I do (which is to say a whole lot)!  She just turned 40 and we went and celebrated with her Saturday night.  Yummy Mexican food, adult beverages, birthday cake, and good company.  There was no better way to celebrate.

Sunday is baking day and this week I made Mix and Match Mama's S'mores Bundt Cake.  I cannot wait to take this one in to work tomorrow.  I think it's going to be a hit.

Sunday was a gorgeous day.  Warm and sunny and Jack and Kate took the opportunity to relax on the patio.  It is seriously their favorite spot.

For the month of April, Stella & Dot is donating all proceeds from the sales of these four bracelets to the HollyRod Foundation which provides support for those with Autism.  At $19 each they make great gifts and are a sweet way to show your support for a great cause.

For every 10 bracelets sold, I am doing a giveaway.  A few more bracelets to go and I will be giving this away super cute 'good vibes' pouch to one lucky winner.  Help me help the HollyRod Foundation!

That's what we've been up to this week!  Make it a great week everyone, I'll see you all back here for tomorrow's Stella & Dot Style.
