New Clock || Living Room






I know. I change my mantel like I change my undies. Everyday. 

Okay, not that often, but I haven't been able to find my mantel sweet spot until now. 

This clock. Oh my. Gimme all the heart eyes. Even Chris is googly at it. It is perfect. And cheap! We got it at At Home for $70! Right when we hung it we were smitten. 

My plans for the rest of the living room are to save up our spare change and get a large tv console like this. I also want new curtains that are lighter in color. I am hoping to swap the curtains this summer and possibly find a console that I can refinish for a cheaper price. We shall see! A new coffee table is also on the list as well as, possibly, a new paint color. I really want to go with a light grey, but I am not willing to repaint, so I'm sure the paint won't be changing anytime soon.

When all that is said and done I think we will be able to call this room finished, but knowing me, it will never be done.

PS: Nordstrom's Half Yearly Sale is going on now! This shirt is simply perfect and this watch is 45% off! 

Happy Thursday!

WIWW: Rocksbox + A Free Month For You! + Link Up











I have never been one to wear a lot of jewelry. I have my daily rings and my go-to earrings, but everything is pretty simple.

I am also cheap and refuse to spend a lot on jewelry when I know I always end up wearing my old faithfuls. That leads me to Rocksbox.

With Rocksbox I can get designer (hello, gorjana and Kendra!!) jewelry of my choosing sent straight to my door. For $19 a month you can borrow three pieces at a time and wear them, buy them, or swap them out at anytime for three new goodies!

This subscription is perfect for someone like me who likes the trendy pieces, but can't stand the thought of paying for jewelry when I know I might not like the piece in a couple months, or wear it that often!

With the code tuckerupxoxo YOU can get one month free of Rocksbox and try it out yourself! What do you have to lose?! The code does not expire, so when you decide you're ready, just come back here and get in on the fun!

Now for the link up!

What's in my bag || The truth

I love seeing what other people have in their bags. Sometimes I think, "Who the heck thinks they need to have (fill in the blank) in their purse?!" while other times I think, "I need to carry one of those (fill in the blank) with me." Either way, it is always interesting to see what is behind the walls of a purse.

If you're my husband, you call my purse "the black hole" and if you were my purse, you would hate me. My purse is synonymous with: Sarah's trashcan, Sarah's place for everything, Sarah's suitcase, etc.

So, because I'm not good at faking anything, I'll just be real and show you exactly what's in my purse. Sometimes I think it is a relief to know that someone else in the world had 87 receipts, four wads of chewed gum in the wrapper, and a billion other random things in their purse....and they don't even have kids yet. Yikes.






Starting on the far left with the long silver pen looking thing, also know as a tire pressure gauge. Chris just said, "I don't know why you have that in your purse and not in your car..." I agree. I have no idea why it is in my purse. 

Moving clockwise, that is my stack of receipts. Every time we go somewhere and get a receipt I just shove it in my purse. 

I won't name everything, but you can see (still going clockwise) that I have two journals, a pink notepad, and pink and white striped note-cards...because I like to write a lot? No clue. I have the brochure from my dermatologist appointment and my blog business cards. As you look right we have trash and extra napkins, as well as floss and box-tops because, you know, I have to help my school! 

Scattered in there you can spot my passport picture (or my mug shot, you'll never know...totally kidding!), lotion, a pack of gum and an empty pack of gum, my wallet, pens, a nail file, toothpicks (because floss doesn't cut it?), hair-ties, medicine, a mirror, church notes, mints, gift cards, chap-stick, and, finally, business cards from random people. 

Now, please make me feel better and tell me your bag looks the same? Or at least lie to me so I have help convincing my husband I'm not the only woman with a purse like this!
