Fall Goals and the Time for Mom Hop!


It's September and that can only mean one thing- it's "fall ya'll"!  Even though I love summer, the heat has really taken over this year and I've been in sort of a slump.  To me fall feels like a great time to refresh and restart on some goals that I have really been ignoring all summer!  So let's get to it!

Fall Goals:

1. Cook healthy meals on every weeknight, even when my husband is out of town.  Because I tend to just make frozen raveoli whenever my husband isn't home!

2. Workout 3 times per week.  You know, to be healthy and strong.

3. Grow back my nails since I bit them all off over the past two weeks.  Because they look terrible.

4. Wear cute outfits and show them off in my Fall Style link up!  I want to start putting together nicer outfits and wear more "fashionable" clothes than just my regular tee shirt and jeans or shorts!

5. Do "tot school" types of activities with Carter 2 - 3 times per week.  I want to find activities that we can have fun together and he can learn some things, too!

6. Keep my budget sheet up to date!

I will revisit these goals at the end of September and see how I did!

What are your goals this fall?

White After Labor Day? Why Not?!

Not wearing white after Labor Day seems to be a little outdated, don't you think?  The whole idea behind it really just doesn't apply to modern society.  Besides, my white jeans got no wear all summer- it was way too hot!  Let's be a little "fashion forward" and experiment with some fun ways to wear white after Labor Day! 

I came up with three very doable outfits incorporating white jeans for fall! Which one is your favorite?


white pants
Look 1: white pants - swing sweater - statement necklace - boots
white pants 2
Look 2: white pants - chambray shirt - suede booties


white jeans 3

Look 3: white pants - grey tee - navy blazer - fun shoes

How do you feel about wearing white after Labor Day?

Happy Labor Day everyone!

What do you keep in your car at all times?
