While most of us are undoubtedly filling our 4 day weekend with hot dogs, celebration and fun in the sun, don’t forget to take a moment to remember what Memorial Day is truly about. Today we must remember the courageous men and women who have payed the ultimate price for our freedoms. Memorial day is for those who have died during combat while serving this great nation. Today while you are drinking beer and floating in a pool, take notice at the flags that are flying at half staff… don’t forget to pause for a National Moment of Remembrance at 3pm local time… for this holiday is more than what we give it.
“I am oppressed with a sense of the impropriety of uttering words on this occasion […] If silence is ever golden, it must be beside the graves of fifteen-thousand men, whose lives were more significant than speech, and whose death was a poem the music of which can never be sung.”
James A. Garfield – Civil War General, Republican Congressman and 20th U.S. President
I love nothing more than a big ole, in your face, out of nowhere, pop of color! We wear a LOT of camo at our house. We consider it our family color. I know that may sound silly to some, but we work hard to be a great team in our house and a great team needs a great color. We are a house full of adventure seekers, adrenaline junkies, fighters, warriors, athletes, hard workers, and rough and tumblin’ boys… What other color could we choose? So, when we as a family sport our “family color”, I throw in some hot pink. What else is this “Boy Mom” to do?! Shop the look below:
Camo Tennis shoes here, here, here & here // Hot pink laces // Exact distressed denim here – Similar distressed denim here & here // Similar Hot pink Sunnies here, here – Exact pink sunnies here & here // Essie polish in “Coconut Cove” (clearly I am wearing this color a LOT lately)
Happy Friday and hello to a long weekend!
THIS. DRESS. I love this sweet little pink, lace dress and the poms on it make it even more adorable. The best part about this little number is that it is only $24!!! The dress is really a great deal and can be styled a million different ways. I paired it with white heels and this cute flower bag I found. Shop the look below:

Happy Hump day beauties. Don’t forget to lift someone up today.
Just a casual day of errand running with my 2 boys in tow! Tennis shoes are ESSENTIAL when I have my two little dudes with me. Do you feel me? I am currently obsessing over this faux leather cap. Shop the look below! Linking my favorite lip color below too.

Several years ago, I walked into a salon for an appointment and one of the stylists came up to me and commented on the pair of red heels I was wearing. “Girl, everyone needs a pair of red heels. It screams confidence.” I will NEVER forget this comment. Partially because it made me giggle, but also because it is SO TRUE! Every gal needs a great pair of red heels!! I’ve linked a few awesome pairs including the ones in the picture. They are my favorite and only $29.99!
Happy Friday beauties,
