Catching Up

Catching Up

It's my favorite time of year as spring is merging into summer, but it's also insanely busy. Lil' Miss graduated from VPK last night, and had her kindergarten assessment at her new school. I took her to lunch after, and she ordered the biggest cookie ever for her special treat. 

I was excited to catch up with some of my closest girlfriends over bottomless mimosas in the prettiest courtyard garden at The Wellborn which is a hidden gem in Downtown Orlando. I've now experienced this amazing spot during the day and in the evening and honestly can't pick a favorite! 

On Monday night, a friend and I were treated to a pre-screening of the new Downton Abbey movie. I was jumping out of my skin excited, and ventured out on a Monday in who knows how long. It was AMAZING! Lots of humorous moments as well as emotional of course. Another brilliant addition to the Downton story. I already can't wait to see it again! 

I also start a new job tomorrow. This was an extremely hard and emotional decision which was necessary for my mental health, my family and my wallet. I've been a bit weepy, and will miss some amazing people but also need to move on. I traveled all over the world, and built some amazing tools. However, it's time for something new and I'm excited (and extremely nervous of course!) 

So Fresh, So Clean

So Fresh, So Clean

It's officially May - how did this happen? The NSync song is still in my head, and I'm absolutely loving the longer days of daylight. Last week I went to a much needed hair appointment. It's always nice to catch up with my stylist (can't believe I've been going to her for over 10 years now!), and I was definitely in need of a re-fresh.

On Friday night, Lil' Miss had a gymnastics party which meant date night for us. We finally scored a reservation at a restaurant we've been trying to get into for a while, and then hit some golf balls at TopGolf. Well - I had a lot of air swings, but that's neither here nor there. Still a lot of fun!

On Saturday, we were reunited with framily for some grilling and pool fun. Lots of catching up over good food, beverages and lots of laughs. The kiddos splashed around in the pool, and had a serious game of laser tag and we made plans for future staycations and vacations. 

I feel like it's been forever since I scooped up a fresh pair of sneaks, and I had these beauties on my wish list for a while. They dropped in price, and I almost snagged them. Then they dropped in price again, and I knew I had to go for it before they were gone. They are currently 57% off and only $36. If you're not a fan of the blush pink there is also a white and silver combo at that price point. Perfect for running errands, walks around the neighborhood, upcoming travel and taking Lil' Miss to gymnastics and t-ball. 

I also had been eyeing these earrings for Lil' Miss now that her ears are pierced, and have healed. Another item I've been watching, and they dropped down to $19. She has been asking for Minnie Mouse earrings long before her ears were even pierced. So, I'm holding on to these to give her for a special occasion or after a big milestone.
