Look at Baby Briggs Grow!

Thursday, July 20, 2017
I am super late writing this post (what else is new and at least I'm staying true to myself)!  My little baby Briggs is now 7 months old and I have yet to take his milestone pic for this month.  So, while I'm figuring out when to do that, I at least wanted to share his previous milestone photos.

He's such a big guy now.  He's wearing 12 month clothes and to be honest they are a bit snug.  He's not as chunky as my Daxie was but he's still pretty solid.  Mainly my little dude is tall.  And cute.  Oh so cute!!  It's pretty striking how much he's changed.

How to Host a Viewing Party for Two on the Fly

Wednesday, July 12, 2017
One of my besties (Joy from Basically Joy) had a brilliant idea to have an impromptu viewing party for the season premiere of The Real Housewives of Orange County.  I agreed and said I'll host at my place.  So we developed a game plan that I wanted to share with you along with a special recipe.

We knew we needed a signature cocktail.  This was our first priority.  So we decided to have some Pina Colada Margaritas (it was #NationalPinaColadaDay).  Next up was deciding on the food.  Since it was just us two, small bites was the way to go.  Joy made some yummy Nutella Raspberry Dip and the most amazing Cheddar Bacon Ranch Pull Apart Bread.  An lucky for you, she shared the Bread recipe here.  It was like crack.  I'm guessing.  I've never tried crack but I've heard it's pretty addictive. 

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 Insights & Giveaway

For the past couple of years, I've blogged about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale mainly because I'm a loyal customer (I also used to work at Nordstrom back in the day) and I love a good bargain.  However, and I'm ashamed to admit, I never actually knew what it was really about until this year.  Now, I'm here to share with you my new found knowledge in the hopes your potential NSale shopping experience is that much better.  I know mine will be this year. 

So the gist of this awesome once a year sale is that Nordstrom releases new Fall merchandise at unreal sale prices.  It's new arrivals on sale.  That never happens!  Well, I guess it does with the NSale but who knew!  This makes so much sense to me now because I've purchased boots from the last two sales.  Duh Camille.  I mean, duh.  I will use the Sale this year to freshen my wardrobe with trendier Fall pieces and pick up some things for all three of my boys (you know, the hubs, the kid and the baby) and possibly get some Christmas shopping in!  Cardholders get Early Access for about a week before the sale goes public.  I'm stoked that I'm a cardholder and will be shopping on day 1 of Early Access, which is July 13th.  I have marked my calendar in pen and saved an appointment in my Google calendar.  It's that serious guys.
