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

Hello and Happy Monday!  We are halfway through July!  Can you believe it?  I was out of town most of last week and I am headed out to Austin on Tuesday.  Lots of exciting things this week though - I'll mention those at the end of the post.  But let's recap what's been going on with us lately.

Last Saturday I was off to Phoenix.  I had the morning free on Sunday so I took advantage of the slightly cooler temps and hung out at the pool.  It was HOT.

The meeting was held at the Arizona Grand Resort and it was beautiful.  The workout facilities were so nice - top of the line.  It almost made me want to work out.  Which I did, but some days it was an effort.  #honestyisthebestpolicy

I love this dress.  I got it last year from J. Crew.  It's a great summer dress for work.  It gets chilly in the office so I throw a navy cardigan over it to complete the look.

Wednesday afternoon I had a few hours after the meeting ended so I braved the sun for an hour.

And then this happened, so I figured it was time to come in from the sun for a bit.

My last night in Phoenix I made my way to the lobby bar for dinner.  There were pulled pork nachos on the menu, so... #nachosaremyfavorite

I arrived home on Thursday and was fully prepared to have soup for dinner as planned, but Phillip walked in the door and said "Let's go to Mi Cocina."  Ok.  #whoamitoarguewiththat

This is as close as I'll ever get to a lap cat.  Sigh.

We drove by the house on Friday.  We're making continued progress.  The tubs are in, the electrical is going in and I imagine the shingles will be up in short order.  Yay!!!

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is here!  If you are a Nordstrom card holder you have access NOW!  So get to it!  The sale opens up to everyone else July 21.  I posted about my favorites here and my fitness favorites here.  I can't wait for that Vince Camuto jumpsuit to arrive!

Saturday evening we had a party for Phillips father - it was his birthday.  I knew all the kids were going to be there so I wanted to be cute but casual!

Singing Happy Birthday!

I did not want to work out today.  I could just as easily skipped today.  Phillip gently nudged me in the right direction though and we made it to the gym to get a run in.

And then I made brownie truffles...

We wrapped up Sunday with the new episode of Game of Thrones (along with everyone else in America).  Winter is here!  And you can find my super comfy Ugg slippers here.
