Happy Friday!!!

First and foremost, thank you all for your sweet comments on yesterday's post. We have had this decision made for a few months, but I couldn't tell anyone. It's so nice to just have it out there, have told everyone at work, and to let you all in on it! :) I'm absolutely thrilled about our new adventure and am so thankful, as I said yesterday, for this blessing and the ability to be able to do it. It's definitely not without some sacrifice, but it's what Brandon and I have decided is best for our family right now. And, I'll reiterate what I said yesterday: let's not judge others, make rude comments or be ugly to people because what they have chosen or have to do is different from what you have chosen or have to do. Being a mom is a tough job all around, and we, as women, need to support each other regardless of our circumstances.

Anyway, WOOSAH! 

Have y'all heard about SheInside? As I was cleaning out and reorganizing my Pinterest boards last week, I stumbled upon a shirt I had been wanting forever: the beige long sleeve contrast ruffles shirt. I couldn't turn down the $10.50 price tag, either! 

If you go through Ebates right now, you get 6% cash back, and SheInside has various promotions going on through their site that you'll see at the top of the website. I got this shirt in three days, too! {And I love it!} Just be sure to go up one size, as it's from China and sizes run smaller over there than they do in the United States. 

I'm on the hunt for a new entryway table in our house, since ours is currently black and honestly, I've never really loved it. I'm pretty obsessed with this one from World Market, and it's currently on sale. Thinking I might have to bite the bullet and get it! 

After finally watching "The Astronaut Wives Club," -- of which Brandon and I both really like -- I decided I wanted to read the book it was based on...because I'm nerdy like that! I ordered it on Amazon and it came in two days thanks to my Prime, and I'm really loving it so far! You can order it right here for yourself! {I ordered mine in paperback for $10.60, but they also have the hardcover, audio book and Kindle versions.} It's really cool to read the backstory, and frankly, I think ABC did a pretty bang-up job of keeping it pretty similar to the real life version.

I'm getting my hair trimmed this afternoon and I can't wait! This is pretty much how I feel about my hair in its current state right now {and yes, that's my child!}:

  1. OMG! That last picture! So funny!!! Happy Friday!

  2. I think it's so wonderful that you are going to stay at home with Walker! I'm glad to hear you tried SheInside. I've seen some of their cute stuff but wasn't sure about the quality so I'm glad to hear you had a good experience :) I'm adding the Astronaut Wives Club to my to watch & to read list! Have a great weekend :)

  3. I am loving Astronaut Wives so I might need to read the book!! Happy weekend! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  4. I love Astronaut Wives Club, I need to catch up though. I'll have to check the book out as well. I totally agree, we need to support each other rather than tear each other down. I think it's awesome that you're staying home with your son! We should be making choices that make us happy, not our neighbors or friends. Have a great weekend!

  5. I enjoyed The Astronaut Wives Club as well (both the book and the TV show.) And I love the clothes featured on the show!
