Girls Staycation

I feel extremely lucky to be surrounded by so many friends in Austin. Friends from college, friends from my neighborhood, and friends from my childhood. Kelly, Amy and I have known each other for over 22 years as we grew up in the same small town of Pleasanton, TX. The great thing about a small town is that there is ONE elementary, ONE middle school, and ONE high school. We all went off to college, and here we are in Austin. Amy and I actually work for the same company and see each other everyday, and Kelly lives 5 minutes from me.

We took a weekend staycation at Sonesta Bee Cave and celebrated our friendship! If you aren't familiar with the Austin area, Bee Cave is only a few miles west of Austin.  We had a full day of activities so read on for all the details!

Also, thank you to my awesome husband for holding down the fort with three wild and young kiddos!

How I Keep My Home Clean As a Working Mom

If you're first thought when you read the title of this post was "hire a cleaning lady", know I'm not that fortunate ; ). A clean home is very important to me, and it's important to create a comfortable environment for my family and friends. A clean home makes me feel less stressed when everything around me is out of control...hello 15 month old twins and a 4 year old. As a working mom it can be hard to get everything done during the work week, unless you put it off and want to spend ALL weekend cleaning which I definitely don't want to do.

I've partnered with Lemi Shine today to share my tips on how I consistently keep my home clean during the week as a working mom! Even though this is sponsored, I can honestly say that I truly LOVE all of their products, which are 100% natural and use citrus extracts so they smell wonderful.

ATX Blogger Mixer Recap

Last month I hosted my 9th ATX Blogger Mixer! I took a break after the last mixer in November, because I needed time off from planning. I wasn't sure how long I would wait to start planning the next, but the opportunity fell right in to my lap and I couldn't pass it up.

Spring Outfits Roundup

If you don't already know I'm all about comfy, neutral and functional outfits for work and weekends. Every once in a while I'll add a pop of color to my outfits, but it's usually with shoes or jewelry. I've rounded up my latest Spring outfits, and I can honestly say I love mix and matching all these pieces! I've linked everything below and in my SHOP!

April Small Goals

I was apprehensive to start writing out monthly goals, but since I started last month it's been a GAME CHANGER! There are a few goals on here that I would have never accomplished had I not written them down and had some accountability to get them done. Check out what I accomplished and what I'm working towards for April!
