I’ve been on the search for some new jeans for a while now. I love Old Navy’s jeans so much but they’re super skinny and they tend to be really right around my ankles. I’m totally out of that “I want my jeans to be super tight and fitted” stage in life, I like a jean that’s still skinny but not super skinny if you get what I’m trying to say. I got a pair of Mavi Jeans in my stitch fix one month and I LOVED THEM! They fit sooo perfect, BUT they’re super pricey, and with us purchasing a new home I really want to buy new furniture for it which means this girl can’t buy $150.00 jeans anymore. I’ve been searching and searching and finally found the perfect pair of jeans at Kohl’s of all places. They’re these Lauren Conrad Skinny Jeans. They fit just like my Mavi jeans AND they’re affordable, especially if you have some Kohl’s cash to spend. I might have bought three pairs this week..
Mike and I have really been trying to eat healthy this week. Hopefully we can continue to eat healthy, but man it’s so hard! I’m telling you I get cravings for cake, coffee ice cream, and chips every. single. day. I wanted to try the Whole30 but it’s so strict and I’ve heard some negative things about it, apparently it can be really dangerous for the body. So, we’re sticking to mainly whole, clean food choices Be on the lookout for some new recipes soon!
My little brothers start school Monday and I seriously don’t know where summer went! It went by soo fast and I cannot believe it’s over! Zachary, the 17 year old, starts his senior year Monday!! I’m in disbelief that he is a senior. Wasn’t it just yesterday that I was pushing him around in my baby doll stroller?? Zachary is so creative, he really has talent when it comes to drawing, photography, and anything that has to do with digital design on the computer. Carson, who’s 11, is starting middle school! I’m soo proud of him, he worked so hard to get into the AG program and he did it! He did math counts last year and he loves participating in Robotics. He will probably be the doctor or lawyer in the family, he’s so smart, and I promise I’m not just saying that because he’s my little brother. Grayson is 9, and he is going into third grade! The big testing year. I know he will do great. I can’t wait to see where life takes these three boys this school year!
To the left is Carson and I when he was not even a year old! To the right is all four of us five years ago.
I have puppy fever… Bad. Real bad. We have Susie and I love her sooo much but I want another dog! I’m telling you, if mike would allow it I would be that crazy lady who has 5+ dogs. I want a smaller dog that can sit on my lap and not break my legs. Susie weighs 50 lbs, so she’s definitely not the ideal lap dog (even though she thinks she is). I’ve been researching dog breeds and my favorite so far is a dachshund. I want either a minitaure short hair red coat, or a long haired English Cream. I’m so obsessed. At night all I do is read about them to make sure I want one and look up Pinterest pictures of them. Y’all- I even have the dog named. Mike and I talked and we agreed that next spring would be the ideal time for me to get a dog, it won’t be too hot or cold, and we will be settled in our home. We want to get a fence installed in our back yard so Susie (and future pup) will have plenty of room to run and play.
I mean look at those sweet faces. I love them so much!!
I wonder if Mike would let me get both?? HA.
Speaking of the new house.. We move in TWO WEEKS and I have three boxes packed… Three. I don’t think Mike has packed any of his things. We are pitiful y’all. Our last buyers backed out the week before we were supposed to close, and we have to sell our house in order to buy the new one. We ended up having to find new buyers and start the process all over again. Luckily, the people who currently own the house we were planning on purchasing agreed to extend the contract we had with them until the new buyers closing date. With that being said, I don’t think it’s hit me yet that we’re actually moving in two weeks. I’m prepared for the worst and I keep thinking the same thing that happened with the last buyers is going to happen again so I haven’t packed a thing.. Probably not the brightest idea I’ve ever had. I will be out of town this weekend so next weekend is literally our last weekend to get everything packed up. We have to be out on the 8th because we close on the 9th, and with us working all week it’s hard to pack during the weekdays. We’ll probably get mostly everything packed next weekend. Wish us luck!
Happy Friday Y’all! This week has flown by! I’m linking up with April over at A.Liz Adventures this Friday, I hope you enjoyed!
