Pull-On Shorts Style

Honeycomb Top

This hot weather means that I am spending a lot of time outdoors playing. Typically shorts are not my go to look, but I have been embracing them more and more. After all, they allow me to play and move outside while giving me full coverage. And while I may not be giving my full normal smile up above, it's only because it was so BRIGHT and HOT outside. Thankfully I was smiling on the inside since I was so comfortable in my new favorite go to shorts. So, here's a look at my summer shorts...

Valentine’s Day Quick Gifts

Ok, so Jake might not have been owning a huge smile for his Valentine's Day photo shoot yesterday.  What can I say, I think he's sad that his valentine (aka the lil' Bean Kristin is working on) isn't here yet.  Right after the shoot he threw his hands up in despair and hit the bottle pretty hard.  He does love you all immensely though and wishes each of you an awesome Valentine's Day! For Floyd and I, Valentine's Day has always been more about spending time together and giving each other small tokens of love.  Actually that's not entirely true....

BonBon Deal of the Day: Smartphone Style

As much fun as I made of the hubs back in the day for checking his iPhone constantly for emails, texts, updates and whatever else he was looking for, I now find myself doing the same thing. I'm on my second iPhone and full blown addicted to it! It's currently housed in a very beat up polka dot case and I think it's time I treat my baby to a new home. Y'all know how much I worship animal prints and this J Crew number is just $25.00. That's way less than I spent on my...

Champagne Saturday: Well Hydrated

Happy weekend!  It's bright and sunny and things are looking up.  Although I'm still rockin my PJs, which I'll spare you all a glimpse of.  My trip to Albuquerque left me with a nasty cold.  I'm blaming the woman with 6 kids scattered around me on my Southwest flight, but I totally forgive her.  I mean she had SIX KIDS! ON A PLANE!  A cold is peanuts compared to what that woman experiences on a daily basis, I'm guessing.  So despite my love for the good ol' bubbly, I'm drinking lots of fluids.  And when...

Champagne Saturday: Rain, Rain Go Away

I woke up to a rainy Saturday here in Annapolis.  We haven't had a true rainy day in forever, so while it may alter my plans a bit, I'm rallying and off to go get a mani/pedi.  I'm having a serious mani/pedi emergency folks!  I've been so busy that its been waaaay too long since I've given my toes any lovin' and its gotten past the point of no return!  Afterwards, my plan is to rescue Floyd from his Home Depot runs and whisk him off to a summer movie, popcorn and all!  Wherever you...

Champagne Saturday: Feeling Casual

Good Morning and happy Champagne Saturday! For me, this weekend couldn't be more anticipated. The first week back in the saddle after vacation always seems a little rough. Two whole days to kick back, relax, and hang with friends is the perfect cure for post-vacay blues! Today, my friend Amanda is coming over and we are headed out for an afternoon of lunch and shopping. And what better way to greet her and jump start our day than with a mimosa?! Since a friend of mine (you know who you are!) mentioned how we had yet...

Black, White & Pink All Over

Happy Monday lovelies! Are you all as bummed as I am about the weekend being over? It literally flew by. Before I knew it, it was 10:00 Sunday evening and the easy breezy vibe that I had been channeling all weekend was screeching to a halt. But, even though it's over, I'm excited to say that it was a fabulous weekend that was chock full of family fun. The hubs and I finally had that much needed date night. My Mom, sis, the dude and I hit up an art festival and we still managed...
