Happy Hour vol. 1

Welcome friends to my very first edition of Happy Hour! When making plans for the blog this year, I wanted a place to just be able to round up all the thoughts, finds, and ideas that I have during the week and share them with you! There is nothing I look forward to more during the week than happy hour with my girlfriends, so I wanted to bring that to the blog- consider this our time to catch up, chat, laugh, and share everything we’re loving!


(This & That that I found and am loving)

I shared my One Year Bible with y’all on Instastories this week and I was overwhelmed by the positive response! My heart is overflowing that so many amazing women also want to commit to walking through the bible in a year. So excited that we are going on this transformative journey together! (You can grab a copy for yourself here).

Loft just released a new batch of early Spring styles (can’t believe it’s time to start talking about that!) and there are a bunch of gorgeous new prints! I’m hoping at add this contrast-cuff blouse & this pretty peplum to my workweek rotation asap!

It might be cheesy, but I adore words of affirmation & positive messaging, so I think this “girl be brave” necklace would be perfect to gift a friend (or yourself) as we start into this new year!

Lauren James is launching an activewear line called “Activate” and I couldn’t be more excited! Working out just got cuter!


(Ladies who are killing the game this week)


If you’re still working on your goals and resolutions for the new year, Lara has a fabulous post on getting to the root of what matters most and how to accomplish it.

I don’t watch The View, but I did appreciate this article on co-host Sara Haines & her marriage and babies “later in life”- a positive and encouraging read!

I get a lot of my book ideas from Shay, and she just released her 2017 Book Review Post- so many great ones!

Ashley went deep this week and has a great post on social media, comparison, & perfection.


(What I’m up to this weekend)


We came back from Christmas vacation and already I’m hitting the ground running! I’m on the nominating committee for Junior League (we slate the leadership team for the upcoming year) and we have an all day working session Saturday to put together next year’s slate. It’s going to be a long day!

Sunday I’ll be volunteering in the nursery at Church and then my provisionals (I’m also co-chairing the Junior League new member class!) have a fundraiser Sunday afternoon to raise money for their class project. We will be hosting a shuffleboard tournament and I’m looking forward to a fun afternoon with the girls!

I leave for NYC bright and early Monday morning so I also need to pack, do laundry, and get Buddy ready for doggy day care. I’m going to be gone for an entire week and I’m kind of freaking out about how cold it’s going to be! Any tips to stay warm?!

Oh yeah, and sometime in the next 48 hours my new website is supposed to be live! ha. Just a few things going on at once…!


(Because what’s Friday without a few sales)


J. Crew is offering an additional 50% off current sale items with code “SALEONSALE”

Loft is offering an additional 60% off sale items making price points $10/$15/$20! (no code needed!)

Hope y’all enjoyed the first edition of Happy Hour! If you have any ideas/suggestions please let me know- this is definitely a work in progress and I always love hearing from y’all! 🙂
