Momma Style | Striped Ruffles

top: J. Crew // jeans: Old Navy // necklace: J. Crew // earrings: Lavish Leathers // boots: Target (old) // clutch: Clare V



Happy Friday friends!!!  Are you ready for the weekend???  This week seemed to fly by, as does this vague time in January.  It's after the holidays, a sense of routine and normalcy has returned...and I feel we're in that "no-man's-land" of the beginning of the year.  Anyone know what I mean?  I think we all do best when we have something to look forward to...whether that's the next holiday, a vacation, a pedicure, or what have you.  That's where I am right now...in-between things to look forward to and I just need to set some goals for myself. ;)

I think I'll put together a goal post soon, but for today, I want to share this darling J.Crew top my momma gave me for Christmas.  I've had my eye on it and loved when I tried it on and it fit!!!  Not fit meaning the right size, but fit as in layed right and didn't look too boxy.  Right now, it's 20% off at both Nordstrom and at J. Crew.  I styled it with simple skinny jeans, but am looking for a pink or navy pencil skirt to pair it with...Lots of possibilities for this top!!!

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend!!!!  For those in the winter storm, stay warm and safe!

Utah Family Ski Vacation

Happy New Year Friends!!!  How the heck are ya'?  After taking pretty much the entire month of December off, it's good to be back.  We've had quite the eventful last couple of weeks and it's so refreshing to start anew and look forward to a new year!

The week before Christmas, we headed up to Utah for some skiing, sledding, tubing, Christmas activities, and much more.  We were up there for about a week and had a blast.  Being around snow during Christmastime made it seem so much more festive, you know?  (Side eye to Texas weather in the high 70s.)

Check out our tubing video and some of the pictures from our trip.  Lots were taken with my iphone, so I might do another post with those once I upload them...but who ever does that anymore, right? ;)




Out of all the ski resorts within 30 minutes of where we stayed in Utah, we chose to ski/ride at Brighton Resort.  Brighton was very reasonably priced and pretty easy to navigate in terms of rentals, lift tickets, ski school, etc.  The two youngest took a half day of lessons and the two big girls remembered their last two times skiing pretty well, so didn't do school.  I was so impressed with the ski school and instructors...those people are saints!  Brighton was also really accessible in terms of driving up into the mountains, rather than staying there.  In other words, it's not a huge resort like a Park City or Vail would be.  Simple and perfect for all of our skiing abilities.



How did you spend YOUR holidays???

Holiday Birthday Celebration | Christmas Cookies

With all the craziness of the holiday season, Blakely's birthday sometimes seems to get neglected a bit.  This year on her birthday we debarked our Disney cruise in the morning, drove home, and finished the day with a Christmas/Birthday party at my in-law's.  The cookie decorating is a Christmas tradition that the kids look forward to every year.  We all had a great time and I think Blakely felt special on her big day.  She was thrilled to get an electric scooter (which now all the other 3 are putting on their list for Santa)!

Disney Cruise Video | 2016

Hi Friends!!!!  We are still recovering from being back in the "real world" after a week off for Thanksgiving, followed immediately by our week-long "Merry-Time" Disney cruise!  This was our third Disney Cruise and was the BEST YET!  We made so many great family memories and got to experience lots of new things we hadn't seen/done before when cruising with Disney.  I'll write up an official "review & favorites" post later, but for now, check out our video will all the highlights!
(Fair warning: It's a tad lengthy.)

Trend Report | Buffalo Plaid

I am just LOVING all this buffalo plaid EVERYWHERE!  It's the kind of pattern that really is only seasonally appropriate for fall/winter, and this next week with Cyber Week and Black Friday, is the PERFECT time to snag some of this great pattern on discount!  I'm especially crushing on the scarves, jackets, and vests I've spotlight below...great accent pieces and so ideal for bringing some cozyness into your look.
