prime day picks and amazon favorites

Don’t panic.

Seriously, DON’T PANIC.

Except do panic a little, because I have an urgent news announcement (for those that clearly live under a rock without internet. Or Instagram. Or “influencers.” Hey wait, do you have room under there?) Ahem. Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale has collided with Amazon.com's Prime Day, and the result is not only making the entire Internet super annoyed, it’s also unleashing a bomb cyclone of spending (and anxiety), headed straight for your bank account. We should probably all take cover.

my anniversary sale favorites, unless you are John, in which case, what sale?

Okay. Deep breaths. This is what we've trained for, people.

*cues Olympics music, wins gold. In her mind. #itsfine

Not only has Early Access to Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale started, it is also Amazon Prime Day. It's like that bomb cyclone storm thing, except on your wallet. #funforall #exceptforjohn

First of all, to shop the Anniversary Sale right now, you're gonna need to get a Nordstrom credit card. And I know, I know, you're certain that the minute you do, creditors will be calling and your credit score will automatically drop from 800 to 300. BUT, if you have actual boundaries, and even a minimal amount of self-discipline, then none of that will happen. Probably. Maybe. Seriously though, here’s what you do

surviving June + some favorites

I know, I know, you thought I had disappeared from the blog. And I would just like to do what I normally do when I need to explain myself: blame it on the kids. Or bronchitis. Actually both. This may shock you, but it turns out that kids actually DON’T understand the concept of mom working from home. I mean, they can SEE YOU. Why shouldn’t you be able to get them a snack/play monster trucks/clean up their rooms? I mean, YOU’RE RIGHT THERE. CLEARLY, YOU’RE AVAILABLE. Summer is STRESSFUL on them, DUH. THEY NEED YOU.

*insert ALL THE EYE ROLLS. Every last one of them.

the 8 most flattering shorts of summer

Shorts have always been my nemesis. Even 19 year old Sherri refused to wear shorts, mainly because she was highly annoying, and didn’t understand that she did not, in fact, have cellulite ON HER KNEES. She was the weirdo who would wear jeans to the actual beach. Or the pool. Or when it was 100 degrees outside. 

What 19 year old Sherri didn’t know was that pregnancies (and unnecessary amounts of peanut butter m&ms) would eventually bless her with ACTUAL, cellulite, spider veins, and old lady knees. She really didn't know that one day, she would look back and wish that she had walked around in daisy dukes every moment of the day.

She also didn’t know that she kind of had issues, and that doing 3 hours of cardio every day would make her look like a bobblehead. Younger Sherri didn’t know a lot of things.

who run the world?

Who run the world?

Moms.

(If, by “world,” what Beyonce actually meant was: the entire household, everyone’s schedules, and afternoon carpool. Then, yes. #accurate)

But, you know who else runs the world? The girl for whom Mother’s Day isn’t all breakfast in bed and homemade cards. She might be longing to be a mother, or she might be missing her own mother. If that’s you this Mother’s Day, then I am so sorry. Know that I wish I could reach through your screen, hug your neck, and tell you how strong and awesome you are. And then give YOU a gift too. Just for being you. (Also, because I’ve now renamed today ‘WHO RUN THE WORLD’ DAY. And you’re a world runner, I can tell.)

sherri's may faves (aka belated Mother's Day gift guide)

Let’s call this one A Mother’s Day Gift Guide (If Only Sherri Had Decent Time Management Skills.)

But we know Sherri. So, instead, we'll now refer to this post as Sherri’s May Faves. Don’t forget to stop and read the captions that took me an embarrassingly long time to put together, and ended up causing me to post late. Yeah. It’s totally the CAPTIONS FAULT, and NOT my procrastination and lack of discipline.

our Getaway weekend

Recently, I had one of the coolest travel experiences, and Y’ALL NEED TO KNOW ABOUT IT. I was invited to spend a weekend at Getaway’s new Atlanta outpost, AND they even let me bring my crew of crazies. If you haven’t heard about Getaway, it’s essentially hipster meets glamping, meets tiny cabin. Go stalk their IG for a few hours, and then come back. I’ll wait.

best swimsuits under $35

Well, we’re almost to the special time of year that I like to call “Regretting Who You Were the Last 3 Months.”

In other words, it’s Swimsuit Time, y’all. And by “Swimsuit Time,” what I really mean is “stuff yourself into uncomfortable pieces of spandex under florescent lighting, while simultaneously cursing the steady stream of peanut butter M&Ms you fed yourself all winter” Time.

I despise buying bathing suits. I hate trying them on in the Worst Lighting Possible. I hate the way one piece suits make me look like I’m wearing an actual diaper, yet STILL somehow manage to showcase all my flaws. And I hate the way two-pieces make me look like a middle aged lady who has definitely had children come out of her body. Even though that’s exactly what I am. MINOR DETAILS.

DIY spring garland with Scotties

It’s a little ironic that Scotties reached out to me about collaborating on a project, because the sheer amount of tissues my people have been using over the last 2 months will probably bankrupt us soon. So when Scotties asked if they could send me some boxes featuring their new spring designs, I was all SEND HELP AND BY HELP I MEAN ALLLLLL THE TISSUES AND BTW WHEN CAN WE START?!

Now, we’re into allergy season. So guess what we need more of? TISSUES. If I’m being honest, I’ve kind of avoided the “conveniently placed tissue box” route, in favor of the “blow your nose until it’s raw using only toilet paper and paper towels” method. Why? Because most tissue boxes aren’t all that decorative. Enter Scotties spring designs, which look great in virtually every room in my home. Not only that, there are SO MANY fun ways to upcycle these bad boys. My personal favorite is using the empty boxes to make a cute spring-y garland.
