Shopping Deals and Steals

Y'all know I love shopping and I love a great deal! There are a couple places that I love to shop at that are having storewide sales right now. These are places that you can not only find every day pieces, but also some of those higher end products you've been eyeing. Nice thing is, you can get those pieces you've had on your wish list right now for 25% off the retail price! 

Lord & Taylor has their Friends and Family event going on right now through April 21st. They do have a few brands that are excluded, but some great ones like Kate Spade and Sam Edelman aren't! Use code FRIENDS for 25% off at checkout. 

Here are my Lord & Taylor picks:
ShopBop is an online store that carries great brands and spot on styles. They have free shipping and even honor Amazon Prime free 2 day shipping! (Which, as I've said before, is God's gift to mothers) If you've had your eye on the ever popular Karen Walker tortoise sunglasses or some fabulous something from Tory Burch, now is your chance to get them for a deal! Use code INTHEFAMILY14 through April 17th for 25% your purchase. 

Here are my ShopBop picks:Let's just hope the hubs doesn't see this post of mine. Hehe. Tell me if you get something you've been eyeing!

Finding Your Perfect Fit


Am I the only one really shocked by this stat? I didn't think I was one of the 80%, until I used the Kohl's online measuring tool and found out otherwise! I think it's hard to stay on top of bra sizes when you're in the middle of childbearing years and your sizes are up, down and any other direction they can go in. 

I had noticed some "back fat" lately in some pictures I had taken for my outfit post, which doesn't look nice AT ALL. With my new size in mind, I spent some time in Kohl's bra section and am feeling like all sorts of a new woman.

I am so happy to have some new bras that actually fit. I've been wearing some uncomfortable bras and that right there should be sign enough that my size was off!

How do you know if you're wearing the right size bra? If you have any of the following signs, it's time to shop:

- The cups wrinkle
- You spill over the top or sides of the cups
- The center of the bra doesn't rest flat against your breastbone
- The band rides up in the back

Sound familiar to anyone? Head over to Kohl's and find your #PerfectFit bra from their wide selection of bras!



With tons of brands, cuts and colors to choose from, Kohl's has you covered at prices that won't make you want to return to the braless 70s. If you get in before April 19th, you'll earn $10 Kohl's cash for every $50 you spend. Currently, you can also get many brands of bras buy one, get one half off!

Happy shopping for your perfect fit at Kohl's!

Flip It and Reverse It.

The hubs was gone the whole week last week and I basically melted into a little puddle of exhaustion when he got home. The good thing about being apart, is you really savor the time when you get back together. Our weekend was a really great one. It started off with dinner with friends on Friday night and T-ball Saturday. Callan wants to "play baseball!" so badly, so he was thrilled that the dugout was open and he could hang out with his brother during the game. 
Sunday, we went to church and looked like the brightest family on the block. Cal was dressed like a retired Floridian in his adorable FabKids getup and fell asleep in the car. This picture made me realize my baby isn't quite "baby" anymore. 
Sunday on the way home from church, we stopped at Dicks to look at canoes. We've been talking about it since we moved here, but kept putting it off for some reason. Well, we ended up buying a canoe we can all fit in and a single kayak for times we just want to go out alone for some peace and quiet. We took them both out with my sis and we wondered why we waited so long to buy them! 
The boys loved it and much to my amazement, sat still enough for us not to flip either boat. 


My arms feel like they're going to fall off today, after carrying the boats down to the water and all the paddling. I should have some sweet shoulders by summer! We followed up the lake time with grilling burgers and hanging on the deck. I seriously love living here! (Remind me of this when it's 100 degrees out!)

So of course after a fun weekend, my kitchen looked like this. 
When I saw this huge island during our house hunting, I thought about how much easier it would be to keep the kitchen clean with so much space. Umm, not so much. It just collects even more crap. Luckily, staying up until 11:15 got it all cleaned up last night and ready for the week. I'm prepping for my family to come in Friday, Cooper's 6th Birthday party on Saturday and Easter on Sunday!
