But today, you get a special treat!
We are getting a visit from Andrea (one of my real life besties!) who blogs over at Momfessionals.
Andrea teaches math at a private Christian school, she is married to her high school sweetheart Dave, she has 3 of the cutest kids you’ve ever laid eyes on (Luke, Mason, and Griffin), she has more creativity in her little finger than I have in my entire body (check out her back to school dinner for her kids HERE and her North Pole Express breakfast HERE),
and she is make you want to pee your pants funny.
But before we get started, there is 1 main thing you need to know about Andrea.
She is who I want to be when I grow up.
Never mind that I’m WAY older than she is.
The chick has got it going on.
In fact, If you want to read something that will ROCK YOUR WORLD as a mom, click HERE.
You and your kids will be blessed by her words and this philosophy, I promise.
Did you go read it? Because you need to. Now.
It’s SO simple, it’s so easy to implement, yet it might really change how you parent
on a day to day basis.
And speaking of life-changing, you need to know about THIS recipe now.
Because OH MY WORD the deliciousness is crazy. And it’s stupid easy to make.
AND it makes a ton, which means LEFTOVERS! WooHoo!
Okay. Before we get started.
Neither Andrea nor myself were blessed with the gift of brevity. We know this.
So grab a cup of coffee and a bagel and settle in.
Now, here are some questions that Sheaffer sent over for me to answer!
(The writing in italics is Sheaffer talking!)
The exact color of the MUST HAVE jacket is sold out of almost every size, but there are other colors from the same maker available HERE.
Oh just you wait friend! I put together a couple of outfit boards for you at the end of this collage!
Even older than the coat, I have this beaded bag that I took to Prom my senior year of high school (2002)
which is embarrassing because my SIL gave me a hard time about DON’T BE PREGO FOR MY WEDDING and I was all, “I am NEVER going to be pregnant again”. About 3 weeks later I found out I was pregnant with Griffin. There wasn’t enough time to order another dress and so I was about 16 weeks along at the wedding and had to wear a cardigan over the dress since it wouldn’t zip (at all!) in the back.
What is your most worn piece of jewelry?
I like the way you think Andrea. THIS is why we’re friends.
End of story.
Andrea, Dave is so lucky to have you.
(This is at Griffin’s dedication… and I’m not sure what’s going on with my face… but oh well!)
I’m laughing because Shay told her to get this, not me….but I will TOTALLY take the credit.
Because the vest is CRAZY cute.
I wore this ALL THE TIME this Winter. I had to stop myself from wearing it.
Y’all…. I fought Sheaffer on this for a LOOOOONG time. I didn’t think I could justify the price tag. But then I did and I have literally worn it every. single. day. since then.
THANK YOU ANDREA!!!!!!
I think it’s great how you were able to show all of us how you made your standard closet FABULOUS!
I LOVE YOU SO MUCH FRIEND!
AND I KNOW ALL OF YOU LOVE HER NOW TOO!
A couple of things before you leave.
(Go ahead. If you’re done with your coffee and bagel, grab a snack if you need to)
I’ve found one or two things that you nee to consider adding to your your closet right now.
Because like you said, don’t question it.
Click HERE for the new super dark wash Vigoss jeans.
And in addition to the above jeans, I found some maxi dresses that I know Andrea will love.
Because Andrea is the QUEEN of the maxi.
Because she has them.
And then I decided to have a little fun.
And I’m gonna be honest, I kinda want to high 5 myself.
Because I created some “looks” for Andrea. And they are SPOT. ON.
Andrea’s style is totally eclectic. She always looks absolutely DARLING, and you can guarantee she has the layers piled on!
So, if you want to learn about layering while dressing. ASK ANDREA.
Homegirl knows how to layer LIKE A BOSS.
So I put together a couple of boards that I felt were very ANDREA-ESQUE.
These outfit ideas are ALL YOU ifIdosaysomyself.

You would wear the heck out of that outfit! Right?
Okay, here’s something else you need to know about Andrea.
In addition to wedges and wellies, Andrea can rock a pair of cowboy boots like NOBODY’s BUSINESS. So, I decided to put together a 2nd outfit with some boots!
Okay friends that know Andrea, did I nail it or did I nail it?
And Andrea, tell me this next scarf wasn’t made for you. I dare you.

Do I know you or do I know you?!?
As soon as I closed out the above collages, I found THIS bracelet.
And it’s ONLY $10!!!
And then I found some SALE items that are also perfect for Andrea (and for me!) Click HERE for this hoodie that is now 40% off!
(Here’s one more thing to know about Andrea. The second she walks in the door, she strips and changes into her comfy clothes. She could wear this when her blardigan is in the wash. Because otherwise, the blardigan is on her body. Trust.)
THIS one is for Shay!
Shay was telling me the other day how she was really hoping for a leather moto jacket to be included in the Anniversary Sale this year. And Yes. We are already discussing the Anniversary Sale.
We are fully aware that it’s May, but we are already dreaming of the fall items we are going to be snagging in July.
BECAUSE JULY IS JUST AROUND THE CORNER PEOPLE.
Well Shay, click HERE for this jacket at 40% off!
It’s GORGEOUS. And SO you.
And after I found the above jacket on Monday afternoon, I went ahead and made a sale collage that I ended up posting yesterday.
In case you missed it, here it is!

Thank you so much friend for letting us peek into your closet!
LOVE YOU ANDREA!
