1 || Birthday Party Prep... It's Almost Time!
It's as though I'm in the infamous twister from The Wizard of Oz, running around like a madwoman in preparations for tomorrow's big birthday bash for Carson. I've got most of my list knocked out, but today will be spent picking up the food, flowers, decorating the house, and finishing those last minute details for our shindig and I cannot wait to share the details with you guys!! It's going to be one heck of a party... 
2 || Old Navy is Doing BIG Things This Summer
Anybody out there agree? I have been SUPER impressed with Old Navy's Spring and Summer lines this year... the fabrics have been great for wear-ability, the styles and prints have been on trend, and the sales have been even better! I have a few of these styles [1, 3, 6, 7, and 9] and I love them SO much. They are versatile, fit well, and perfect for summertime outings and travels. 

3 || Father's Day Shenanigans
With Daddy Day approaching this Sunday, I wanted to give a big shout-out to the men in my life who make everyday better! Thanks to Papa, my dad [AKA Pappy] and Jeff for being the best role models and providers, as well as the leaders of our family. Your sacrifices for all of your girls never go unnoticed and your strength always astonishes me in all that each of you do. We love you all VERY much! 
4 || Mix and Match with My Favorite Summer Staples
Ever find that one essential top that you need in every color?? Yep, that's this tank for me [c/o La Senorita Jolie]. I've got it in Kelly Green, but I'm thinking I might need to order a few more... especially to add some staples to my closet in hues of navy, heather gray, and white. The LSJ collection is easy to wear and I'd highly recommend a few other tops they carry including the Izabelle and the Kristin. Looking to order for yourself?
