Last Thursday, my girlfriend and I headed over to The Summit Room. I’ve been wanting to try it out for awhile. If you’re local, definitely check it out! A great wine and drink list. The entire menu looked so good that we couldn’t decide on just one thing, so we ended up getting a couple of small plates and sampling different courses. Really cool atmosphere too. Make sure you make a reservation, and they’ll text you about two hours before to confirm.
Sweet Vaughn loves his Boozer. Any dog-lovers? Don’t you wish their life expectancy was as long as ours?
I know it’s still in the 90’s here, but even in the summer I love a good pair of slippers to wear around my house. I wore my last pair of Ugg Scuffettes for over three years. And they were still in great shape until Effie accidentally spilt some milk in them, and I had to throw them out. So these are my new pair! They don’t carry half sizes, so I’d go up a size if you’re in between. My pj pants are from Old Navy from a few years back, but if I had to suggest a similar fit and style, I would get another pair from Plum Pretty Sugar. I already own these, but I could very easily get another pair, maybe in this print this time?
Since I’m planning on running with Vaughn when Logan and Effie start back school, I pulled our Single BOB out of the attic. This one seems so light compared to the Double BOB I’m so used to using. Effie and I went for a five-mile run on Saturday, and everything went smoothly.
How sweet are my girls? Found this one the floor the other day:
I love you, Effie
I will always love you, Effie
Happy Meals // I got a few Sandwich Cutters from PB Kids last week, and tried the heart one out.
They’re all so cute and on sale with free shipping.
College Football started on Saturday. To prep for my day of cheering and prepping for friends coming over for dinner, I got ready while enjoying a nice Bloody Mary. It’s our Saturday brunch tradition during football season – and my reward after my run!

Sister #5 of the 6 came in town with her sweet baby over the holiday weekend. It was really fun to get to play with him so much… // Joie Top
…that’s if Effie ever shared him.
Such a nurturer.
Seriously though, how sweet is he??
I ordered this notepad from Design Darling when she had her birthday weekend sale a last week. I was so surprised at how quickly it arrived, considering it had to be personalized. Pretty Smitten carries the line at Design Darling. There’s so much I love! I think this little pink frame would be so cute in the girls’ room.
So happy that he’s staying home with me this year. Lots of time to play!
After getting this Tory Burch Ring Set on Saturday, I’ve worn them almost everyday. Such a fun little stack.
I hope everyone has been happy with their Lilly Sale orders. Most of my pieces I’ll be storing away until next summer, but I was able to wear some of them now…
…like this Elsa. It was perfect to wear to the last Knights’ game of the season on Labor Day. Lanier should’ve worn red and then we would’ve been very festive. // Lilly Pulitzer Elsa Top (sold out, similar prints here. For fit, I’m a 4/6 and wear a Small). I also have this Elsa that I plan on wearing soon. Perfect print for Fall! And this print just came out too, and would love something in it. Would go so well paired with navy this season. // Watch
We didn’t end up winning against the Gwinnett Braves, but we still had a fun time!
Effie and Logan start school today. I had assumed the whole time that Logan wasn’t going to want to go. Well, after yesterday’s Open House I was definitely wrong. He screamed so hard, but only because he didn’t want to leave! Here’s hoping that today he’ll be just as excited to get back into his new classroom! // Logan’s Shoes // Effie’s Sandals
Sweet Effie with her new 4’s teacher. I know she’ll do just fine. So proud of how mature she’s becoming.
I know many of you saw Monday’s post where I shared my favorite J.Crew Fall pieces and a fit guide. While the 30% off sale was only on Monday, J.Crew is now offering 25% off your purchase with code: SHOPTIME. Click here to check out my favorites for the season. One item that wasn’t on sale until now was the Duffle Coat. I loved it so much when I tried it on, but was hoping that it was on sale. Well, now it is so you know which coat I’ll be sporting this Fall/Winter. For fit, I’m a 4/6 and the 6 fit better for me. It’s not as boxy and short as some duffles, which I love.
Hope y’all have a wonderful Wednesday!

I bought the long version of the duffle coat last year and love it! The shorter version would be perfect for living in the South!
I'm so jealous your temperatures are still in the 90's…I wish! Cute "Summer" slipper by the way. I love that drink with the cucumber in it. I've never seen a cucumber in a drink before. Marvelous.
I went CRAZY with the Lilly sale. Some of the things I ordered are too big, but I can make them work somehow. 🙂
The Grass Skirt
Love the duffle coat! I have navy one but I wear it so often I truly deserve a gray version…right?!
Love your blog!
I had a hard time deciding between the navy and gray. I've never owned a gray coat so I figured I'd try this one out!
