Showering the Bride

Last weekend was my sister-in-law's wedding shower. We played games, drank champagne, ate cake, munched on food, mingled, and had a great time! The big day is approaching quickly and I can't wait! I picked up my bridesmaid's dress yesterday and, y'all, it is so cute!

Happy Thursday!

WIWW: I Cheated + Link Up

dress // ring // cuff // shoes
Confession: I cheated.

With who: Lou & Grey. Yup, two and not just one.

I'll just let it all out. I cheated on Old Navy with the Lou & Grey line at LOFT, and I'm not even sad about it. Why am I not upset about it, you ask? Because, ummm, have you seen what Lou is rockin'?

This dress is all linen/black striped perfection and had me at hello. I like my dresses loose and comfy and this one checks all the right boxes.

This dress was like a stage five clinger and I couldn't swat it off, so I took it home with me as well. Don't you date all your clingers as well? How do you think I got Chris? STAGE FIVE. 

Ever since leaving the corporate world a couple years ago, I haven't set foot in a LOFT in quite sometime, but they've really done something right with this Lou & Grey line. It speaks my love language and I can tell there will be more cheating in my future.

- Cheating on Old Navy with LOFT.
- Cheating on my diet that I never start in the first place.
- Cheating by telling Chris I don't want any, any of his Coke, but sneak sips while I make him go get me something from the kitchen.

If you've never taken my advice before, take it now: cheating is always justified when you walk away with clothes as cute as this.

PS: Don't forget this is the last week of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale! My favorite Toms booties are $40 off!

My Thoughts on Girlfriends

Girlfriends. Behind Chris, there are no other people in this world that I confide in more than the closest ladies in my life. My parents always told me, "You'll go through life and end up with a handful of truly close, and wonderful friends. You will have lots of friends, but only so many are considered family." They were so right. 

I've cried, laughed, choked on my drink, almost peed my pants, done crazy (crazyyyy!) things, talked all through the night, honestly told my opinion on many outfits and boyfriends, and loved them like my sisters. Some of them I've been friends with since elementary school, while others have come along later in life. 

We can all go days, weeks, months without talking, but always start back up right where we left off. 

I care about the girls in my life so much that I tell them when they have food in their teeth, when they are being a little to over-dramatic, when they smell, look like crap, and are in a bad mood. And they do the same to me. Girlfriend relationships are such a blessing and I am so thankful to have these girls (and others not pictured!) to call mine.

August 1st is National Girlfriends Day which highlights the importance of taking care of your health. We all think we are invincible, immune to sickness, "it will never happen to me", until it does. As a girlfriend to many, it is important that we remind each other to get healthy, stay healthy, and visit the doctor when necessary. 

Below is a road map by Oscar Health Insurance with helpful ages and dates as to when and what checkup is necessary.  They have many services that help women take better control of their health as part of the NY and NJ health insurance plans. I know we all want to be in our 20's forever, but in this case, age ain't nothin' but a number. So find your number and get on it, girl!
Lastly, I wanted to say a prayer for the family of a fellow blogger that I followed for years. I never knew Leslie personally, but her blog was one of my favorites. She went to be with the Lord sometime yesterday. She leaves behind two precious young daughters, a husband, and her adoring family. Please pray for her family during this time.
