If you've been following my blog lately, you'd know how much I love pieces with a surprise element. For instance, this comfy, long sleeve tee has the open back that adds interest and something unique, but feels modest enough to still be classy. For $35, it makes a great gift, too. It's also longer in the back so I feel comfortable wearing my go-to leggings (which are actually called GO-TO leggings! I'm not the only one that relies on them- read the reviews HERE!). I'm also wearing one of the items that I'm adding to my holiday gift guide. THIS SCARF is SOOOO soft and scrumptious. It comes in several colors & patterns and makes an awesome gift (no one would guess it's only $25). For nursing moms, there's nothing better than having a scarf nearby if need be.
For a little bit of bling, I added these blush colored earrings from Baublebar. The clutch (only $25) has been another staple of mine lately (See post HERE); there's a fun leopard print lining inside, too. I'm working on the holiday gift guide, so stay tuned! And, I added some of my favorite, affordable scarves below- so happy shopping, and happy Saturday!
It’s that season, right? The dreaded cough that keeps us up at night- especially the kiddos. Joel’s dad and stepmom shared some of their tried and true remedies with us like Vapo Rub--they even travel with it! Huck’s lingering cough has been keeping him from sleeping well, so my father-in-law reminded us to rub Vicks on his chest. Grateful for the tip again, today, Marvin! What tried and true remedies are passed down in your family? Wanna hear! #VicksVapoRub #ad #vicks #vaporub
My little sister is in town. A few things have changed in 20 years (notice the pay phones)! But some stay the same. She was the cooler one back then (notice the glasses and jellys) and still is. @jlove_____ we need new pictures this trip. 🌴❤️✨#sistertime 💃#20yearsago
Scroll ➡️for the real #RascalRebelRabbits. Oh the chaos and joy of taking kids anywhere!
This day many of us juggled work & kids & getting the family ready for this #PeterRabbit tea party/screening (I picked up Huck from school and dressed him in the car😂). Thx again @themillennialmamas for the fun! Grateful that I get to commiserate about motherhood and go through this journey with my friends. And to my peeps that don't have babies- so grateful for your patience with me and mad love for my kiddos. Big hug to you all-- our village! #feelingthankful ps- if this isn't flowery enough for you... I continue on the blog. New post up;) #linkinbio
Peter's ears didn't make the cut here, but the rest of the event was a success! Hayden sat through his first full movie! Thank you @themillennialmamas for the fun tea party and #PeterRabbitMovie 🐰#huckandhayden #brotherbond
Laugh it off.
Happy Friday. 😜
Took until February, but I got a new blog post up finally about some intentions for the year. Starting with letting more go... attempting to laugh more off. We'll see how it goes! Link in bio for more. 📸: @ographr 😍
#SisterSister This is my little sister! I posted a throwback pic a few weeks ago with some cast members from Trueblood. I mentioned I was with my sister at the event; some of you asked about her. Flashing back to that night and here we are all spray tanned and everything! Scroll for another with one of my besties. Fun looking back on these memories, @jlove_____ ❤️😘maybe you'll let me post more soon😜? (we got a lot of good ones!) #sistertime Can't wait to see you very soon ❤️
Happy Birthday to my husband♥️Let's make this next decade the best one yet! I love you. 😘
#welcometotheclub #40thbirthday ps- thank you to everyone who helped make this a special birthday!😘
Pps- I'm late posting this, but just maybe @joelhenricks won't mind the lingering celebration😉
I love this picture. It doesn't look like anything terribly special, but I keep thinking about it. Yesterday, Hayden finished his first day of Sunday School at church. He's staring at the sticker he got on his way out of class. Huck was telling his brother how proud he was of him. I snapped this and then interrupted the moment by asking them to look at me for a picture. This was the #realmoment, though. #myBoys #brothers #iJustLoveThem #huckandhayden
#fbf The scene where Peppers tells Frank the Tank "you just took one in the jugular, man." I'm Tracy. The caterer. Caught in the bathroom. And I loved being any part of this #classiccomedy. I had a few other scenes with #FrankTheTank that didn't make the final cut. But loved the experience. Still remember my audition with you @joseph._middleton!! 😘
My favorite line in the film will always be the Home Depot monologue. : Well, um, actually a pretty nice little Saturday, we're going to go to Home Depot. Yeah, buy some wallpaper, maybe get some flooring, stuff like that. Maybe Bed, Bath, & Beyond, I don't know, I don't know if we'll have enough time.

It's FriYay! Some of us are more excited than others 😂This picture kills me. Hayden looks exhausted from a long week and Huck looks ready to party! Relate to one?

I'm looking through pictures for a little album for Joel's birthday and I found this... my sweet brother @zjatx took me on a perfect trip! It was before Joel and I got married, before I became a step-mom and mom. Zach- so grateful we had this time! I love you, Z!
All sorrows are less with bread!

About last night. #MajorCrimes series finale. Swipe to see the #walkingdead. 😜Sad to see the series end, but glad I got to be a part of it. @majorcrimestv @tntdrama #ontothenext
Throwing back to a globe party I went to with my sister circa..? Not sure! Who's watching tonight? #trueblood @kristinbauer @mcmillzz #alexanderskarsgard @truebloodhbo #goldenglobes
Reflecting on 2017... I came up with a whole bucket full of grateful... for my family and dear friends (that are family) -and all of you! Check the link in profile for specifics. #onwardandupward #thankyou #goodbye2017
Post beard - pre Happy New Year kiss😉
Pretty day out here at @westlakevillageinn. To the couple getting married today... congrats!
Finally! He was able to relax enough to shave!! Grateful for the R&R, @westlakevillageinn. 😘
I love my husband with any hair & beard style, but seriously... so much hotter with the beard trim, am I right? Swipe for the before... Beard vs. no beard? Actually curious to know;)
This kid...just love him so. His energy and curiosity and humor never cease to amaze me. Joel and I are on our first getaway together since Hayden was born. (Much needed!) But, we'll see both kids very soon. Thank you, Mom, for taking such good care of my heart while we are away. ❤️

Thanks to those that watched @majorcrimestv last night! I had no idea one of the episodes I filmed aired! This picture was taken shortly after we wrapped the scene where I was continually crying. 😂---I was honored to be a part of these last episodes and share the screen with #GWBailey & @kearrangiovanni. Fun fact for @generalhospitalabc fans: @_lexiainsworth and I are both in this episode! 😉 And to make the world a little smaller: the serial killer (my character's step brother) is #BillyBurke (pictured behind GW). I played his girlfriend in a film called Good After Bad.

From our family to yours... Merry Christmas y'all!
