I would like to start off today’s post with a huge heart-felt THANK YOU. Chris and I have been overwhelmed by your sweet and encouraging words. We are still having a really rough time over here. We knew this would be tough, but to be completely honest, we had no idea how painful it would be. We miss Scout terribly. We have shared so many memories about our sweet puppy over the last several days, and I know that at some point the pain will lessen and our happy memories will be at the forefront. We are looking forward to that day, and my goodness do we have a lot of precious memories!
We kept Carter home from school on Wednesday so we could spend time together as a family. We did lots of fun things together and were able to do lots of smiling and laughing, which was really good medicine for all of us. I might have jumped in the pool with my clothes on (anything for a smile from the little guy), and Chris won 2 prizes from the claw machine at the arcade (and I didn’t think anybody ever won anything from those machines)! I was worried about Carter going back to school on Thursday (he had a tough night Wednesday night and a tough morning Thursday morning), so I decided to take him and a friend lunch so I could check on him. It did my heart good to see him doing okay.
When getting dressed to head to the school yesterday, I thought wearing my SQUAD shirt was appropriate, because the last several days I’ve found myself so thankful for my squad. Texts, calls, cards, brownies, pie, cake, rotisserie chickens, and lots of lots of hugs and prayers. I’m thankful for all of these things from my people! I’m also thankful that all of you are part of my extended squad.
The outfit was cute, casual, and the tee gave a shout out to my squad. 😉 What do you think about my new cross body? It’s a great color, a great size for those of you that have been asking for a smaller bag, and I love the shape and style.
And check out my Mother’s Day present! These charm hoop earrings are SO COOL. Mine are the champagne/pearl/rose gold and they are just plain pretty. I think it’s fun how you can leave all 4 charms on each hoop, or you can choose which 1,2, or 3 to have (they slip on and off easily).
I get asked questions about my above sandals a lot, but sadly they are Steve Madden from last year and no longer available. HOWEVER. THESE are the 2016 version of the same sandal. I like them just as much, and they are NOW ON SALE!

When I got from lunch with Carter yesterday, the summer blardigan I ordered last week had finally arrived. And you know I had to try it immediately. I’ll be honest, when I first put it on I wasn’t super impressed. It certainly wasn’t love at first wear like the original blardigan because it’s not the dreamy cozy material. But the whole point of this is that it’s a summer weight. I didn’t even think I was going to keep it at first, but I ended up wearing it all evening long, and now I see how it’s actually the perfect thing to throw on during the summer while at home. It’s very light weight, but still manages to be cozy. I wore it with the below outfit in the afternoon..and then I wore it with some of my favorite Old Navy pajamas (exact pair sold out, but current selection HERE). When at home, I really like to wrap up in things!
