Happy 1st Birthday Jordan

Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Jordan…happy birthday to you!

I realize that some of you find it silly that I am posting about my dog’s birthday, but Jordan is more than just a dog to Rudy and I.  We decided to get Jordan after our third failed IVF cycle.  Since we have yet to be blessed with a baby of our own, we decided to have a fur baby.

We looked at shelters and online for months before seeing Jordan’s picture on a Facebook page for NC dog breeders.  His sweet face tugged at my heart strings the minute I saw his picture.  We contacted the breeder on a Saturday and scheduled to go meet Jordan on Sunday, but when we got up Sunday morning, we weren’t feeling motivated to do anything.  We discussed to reschedule, but then something pushed us to go keep our original appointment to go meet this little guy.

We got to the breeders house and when she opened her door, there he was sitting all by himself.  He was the last of the litter…she said no one wanted him b/c he was the smallest and because he is tricolored.  He didn’t make a sound and when I bent over to pick him up, he didn’t pull away.  I snuggled him and fell in love.  Before we knew it, we were headed home as a family of three.

That was December and the he has brought so much joy and laughter into our lives the past 7 1/2 months.  He is so loving.  He’s playful.  He loves to have his neck and belly scratched and he MUST know everything going on.  He loves getting treats especially when we surprise him with the gourmet ones from the pet store.  He can stand on his hind legs for what seems like forever.  We are quickly learning that he is quite the model – he always poses for his pictures.  And don’t think for a second that you can talk about him without his big ears perking up to listen.

He is spoiled like no other, but we wouldn’t have it any other way.  We love our little Jordan!

Off the Shoulder Tops – Under $50

Hi friends! Hope you all had a great start to your week.  Yesterday was “catch up on email” day and while I worked all day on emails, I’m still not caught up – I’m sure you all can relate.

If you follow us on InstaStories, you already know that I was at the beach last week with my family.  We started going several years ago and now it’s a tradition, which I love.  Typically the guys play golf 2-3 times during the week while the girls and kiddos play in the pool or on the beach.  This year I decided to play golf with the guys two of the days and I must say that I really enjoyed myself.  It was my 2nd time ever playing a round of golf and while I was not good, I didn’t play awful.  I hope to continue to play to only better my game, but I have no idea when I’m going to fit that into my life in the near future. We’ll see what happens!

When I returned from the beach, my first shipment from the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale had arrived and this adorable off the shoulder button down shirt was inside.  When I went to order this top, it was available in both blue and white, but the blue was already sold out of my size, so I opted for the white.  I was a little hesitant that the top would be too sheer in white, but thankfully it’s not – I wore a nude bra and it worked perfectly.

The off the shoulder twist to an otherwise classic shirt is genius.  I wish I could get away with this in corporate America, because the fit is so flattering and the material is super soft.  I’ve linked my exact top below along with other off the shoulder tops under $50!

Have a great day!

Nordstrom Sale- Shoe Picks

It’s Friday!  It’s Friday!

Today is the day when the Nordstrom sale opens up to the public. Prior to today, only cardholders were able to shop the sale items but as of today, anyone can shop until they drop!

We have tried to keep our Nordstrom sale content on here and on social media to a minimum. As avid readers of several blogs, we understand that ONLY hearing about the sale can become irritating. We decided to do a few posts on the sale but not post obsessively about the event.

Because there are some amazing opportunities to grab some great fall items, we did want to share some sale content with you all…and we hope you don’t mind.  One of the key items that we wanted to talk about was shoes. If you have followed us for awhile, you may have picked up o the fact that the two of us each have a slight shoe obsession.  Because of this love of shoes, we just want to share our absolute favorite picks from the Nordics sale with you all!

As always, simply click on the individual images below to view details on each pair and please let us know which ones are your favorites!
