I'm a Mess

Just a normal day around here. Still dragging from the weekend, but I found a handful of things to be grateful for...and at the top of that list is OXICLEAN. Seriously. Nerding out over how this product never seems to fail me. 

Beach Day

Maybe I should say "lake day," but it felt more like a beach day to me. After we woke up and cleaned the patio, kitchen, and living room of all dinner party remnants, we loaded up the car and headed to Pathfinder Reservoir to soak up some sun and just...relax. 

Garden Party

We have made zero dollars worth of investments to the inside of our home. Zip. Zilch. Nada. BUT we have put time, money, and energy to the yard, and since it's summer, I am a-okay with those priorities. Considering this tilt in the favor of outdoor upkeep, when it was time to invite some of our new (and old) friends from Casper over for dinner, I decided it needed to be out back. 

Basic B*$%h Pallet Decor

Trends kind of bother me. Not a whole lot, but enough to make me cringe a little when I see the same 10 girls wearing the same thing, or 20 Instagram videos of people doing the same dance move. Maybe it harkens back to my intolerance for mob mentalities...either way, I'm not usually one to jump on many bandwagons. 

Pineapple Mango Smoothie

Pop some bubbly, mama just started a new blog!

I loved ACE, and it will always hold a special place in my heart, but as far as blogging goes...it felt too personal. I know everyone says to be "authentic" and "real," but I don't know, I think I can be authentic without oversharing - and I think I was oversharing. Plus, since I was so open, it left a lot of room for interpretation, and I don't like putting things out there that I can't explain further through conversation.
