Recent Happenings...Telluride Bluegrass and Tice's 37th Birthday

For the second year in a row a big group of our friends headed up to Telluride for the Telluride Bluegrass Festival.  It's something we will look forward to every summer for years to come because it's an extremely family friendly festival and we will use any excuse to go to Telluride.
Finally got to see Norah Jones in concert
After going to the festival Friday we stayed around our cabins on Saturday.  I went for a run and then we got on a pontoon on Trout Lake and went fishing for a couple of hours before I returned to get ready for the dinner/party I put together for Tice's birthday.  He turned 37 the following day so having everyone together in one place gave me an easy excuse to throw something together!

My outfit details: Romper (purchased from a local boutique similar here) & Booties available here

So glad we were able to escape to one of our favorite places on earth for a couple of days to gather with friends who feel like family and to celebrate my favorite guy!

Thanks for stopping by!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale...Early Access Purchases

The day is finally here! Early access to the Nordstrom Anniversary sale opened up today and to say that I went a little over board is an understatement!  I look forward to this sale every year and have learned from my past experiences that items do truly sell out quickly and if you even think you may want something, just go ahead and purchase it.  Remember you can decide once you have it and return it with their free returns if it isn't for you.  

I grabbed some amazing deals for both myself and the boys in my life but didn't see anything that I needed or even wanted for Kinley...maybe next year!  So without further ado, here are my purchases from the sale this year.  I know there is no way I will keep everything but I hope I like a great majority of it all once it arrives in the mail next week!!!




In addition to the items above I also got this year's version of the it sweater last fall/winter, this cold shoulder top,  this peplum sweatshirt in mint,  these skinny jeans in a dark wash, this cold shoulder ruffled sweater, this blouse in pink, these cropped workout pants from my favorite brand,  this lattice back sweater in ivory, and this maxi dress in red because let's be honest, it's still the middle of summer and WAY to early to actually wear any sweater. Finally for Tice I got him this pullover from my favorite winter brand in blue.  I can't wait to see him in it!  I have one and LOVE mine.  I wish they would have included one for the ladies in this year's sale.

Where you girls able to score anything from the sale during Early Access?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Recent Happenings...Trip to NYC- Part 2

After checking bucket list items off of my NYC to do list the adventures continued!  It would not have been a proper trip to NYC without a trip to Shake Shack.  I love this place so much!  After lunch we walked through Central Park for a while.  We saw the Jackie Kennedy Onassis Reservoir which was very pretty.  

Then walked by the MET before heading home to get ready for dinner.
Enjoying dinner before our Broadway show at Lure
My mom chose Waitress which was based off of the movie.  Since the main character is famous for baking pies the theater sells them for you to enjoy during the show and we were hit by the smell as soon as we walked in!

Finally on our last day we headed to brunch at Le Cou Cou.  It was very good!  

After brunch we walked around so I could do a bit more shopping in Soho before heading to Davio's for lunch and to see my brother's best friend who works there.  It was great to see her and fun to have one more fun meal before heading to the airport.

Walking through Grand Central Station on our way to lunch.

Our trip home took forever with a couple of delays due to weather- we didn't get home until after 2 AM when we were suppose to arrive at 11 PM but other than that it was a wonderful trip and I can't wait to go back sooner than later.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
