happy memorial day weekend peeps! I have amazing plans this weekend. If by "plans," I mean folding an insanely large amount of laundry, while taking periodic breaks to shop the half-yearly sale. Listen guys, the anniversary sale is only a month (ish) away. We need to take our training seriously and start NOW.

I'm kidding. 

Maybe. 

Okay, I'm not. So get your shopping fingers ready, and see how fast you can snag some half-yearly deals.

Because practice makes us abuse our nordstrom card perfect.

Until next time,

friday faves : jet lag edition

Happy Friday friends! I've rounded up a few favorites to kickstart your weekend. You know what's NOT my favorite? Being welcomed home by some raging jet-lag, and a kid with EXPLOSIVE DIARRHEA. 

You just need to know that this entire blog MAY OR MAY NOT MAKE SENSE. 

And this time, I have a valid excuse. 

1. RATMJ Feature in Simply Buckhead - y'all. I may or may not have SHRIEKED EXCITEDLY (like a lot) over being featured in Simply Buckhead this month. My good friend, Jennifer, wrote the article, and not only is she an amazing writer, she made me sound way cooler than I am in real life. I would LOVE for you to read the article, which you can conveniently do right HERE

a monthly subscription box filled with ALL THE FUN THINGS? Yes ma'am, sign me the heck up!

2. Hey Shabby Me Subscription Box - guess what, guys? THIS WOULD MAKE A GREAT GIFT FOR THE MOTHER IN YOUR LIFE. Rumor has it, there's a little holiday coming up to celebrate her, and imma go ahead and tell you, she will LOVE THIS fun subscription box from my friends at Hey Shabby Me. Sign up here, and then thank me for how simple I just made your Mother's Day Shopping. 

(Don't act like you didn't wait until now to shop either, you little procrastinators. You're my people.)

3. This article about Mother's Day Brunch is genius, and basically made me laugh to myself like a creeper in Starbucks. Good times.

4. Just  A MILLION YESES.  

5. FASTer Way To Fat Loss

I know. I feel sales-y about continuously pimping this program out too. I am not a salesperson. Just ask that ill-fated recruiting job I had for about a minute back in my twenties. BUT, y'all. This is my 3rd round and this program is SO WORTH IT. I'm still seeing changes in my body, but also in my mindset around food. (This past week not included, because on vacation my mindset is ALL THE BREAD! ALL THE TREATS! ALL THE CHOCOLATE! I'm pretty sure that's what they refer to as balance.) 

There's a round starting May 22nd, and only a few spots left....there's also now a men's group, a cookbook, and a cleanse. Y'all, I'm telling you. IT. WORKS. You can read more about my experience here if you're on the fence. And then you can hop the heck over it. 

Also my favorite? ALL OF YOU READING THIS.  Fangirling hard over each of you. 

Until next time,

mama's day

click on any image to link to item

Disclaimer: for some of us, mother's day is sad and hard, and if I could reach through this computer and give you a hug, I would DO IT.  Do something nice for yourself today.  Get yourself something (or 5 somethings) from this gift guide. Eat a lot of chocolate. Get a massage. Know that you aren't alone. Truly.

If you are a mom, have a mom, or just know a mom you want to celebrate, then use this gift guide LIKE A BOSS. 

If you're a dad reading this, allow me to share some Mother's Day truth: The mother in your life DOES NOT WANT TO GET UP AND MAKE BREAKFAST. SHE DOES NOT WANT TO GET ANYONE DRESSED (and for the love of God, please don't make us try to put socks on anyone under the age of 5). SHE DOES NOT WANT TO PUT ANYONE DOWN FOR A NAP OR CHANGE A SINGLE, SOLITARY DIAPER. Nope. Not today. SHE DOES NOT WANT TO CLEAN. ANYTHING AT ALL. (Especially the kitchen that your sweet little kiddos destroyed when they "made" her breakfast in bed. In fact, if you see her starting to even try to clean up, this is a sign that she is STRESSED. Grab the cleaning supplies out of her hand and back away SLOWLY. Tell her she's pretty and turn on one of the Housewives.) 

Here's what the wife or mom in your life DOES want to do on Mother's Day: NOTHING. Nothing except Netflix (chill optional, depending on her preference). She wants to eat chocolate. In her pajamas. ALL THE DAY LONG. She wants to have an opportunity to pee. BY HERSELF. She wants ALL THE HOMEMADE CARDS, KISSES, HUGS, AND BADLY MADE TOAST. She wants lots of snuggles. She probably wants some kind of foot rub, preferably from a professional (which is not YOU.)  She wants any number of items on this list. 

Guys. You're welcome. 

Until next time,

friday faves : shopbop sale

Well, unless you guys live under a rock somewhere, then you have heard about the Shopbop sale that is currently being shoved down your throat by bloggers everywhere. (it's okay. It's what we do.) Here are my picks, along with an idea of what may or may not be going to a good home in my closet very shortly....(let's say it together) unless you are John, in which case it's not.
