Vegas Day 2

Surprisingly, I woke up feeling pretty good Thursday morning so my sisters and I walked outside our hotel to get breakfast. One of my sister's left that morning and then the other one and I did some morning yoga while the other girls were still sleeping. After that we got our crap together and headed out to the pool. We actually had a really fun day at the pool. The Hard Rock may be off the strip but they know what to do when it comes to pool parties. Later in the afternoon we had to start getting ready so we headed back to our room to shower before going to Sephora to get our makeup done again. Once we were all ready we headed to get some sushi before going out on our club tour. The night started at Planet Hollywood and then we went to Hakkasan in the MGM, Drais in the Cromwell and Omnia in Caesars. It was such a fun night. Vegas never disappoints! I think I went to bed at almost 5 AM and I always get tired so you know we were having fun. The funny thing is that I don't even gamble. I just really love getting dressed up and going out with my girlfriends. I am already having Vegas withdrawls and wish we could go back.

Vegas Day 1

Last week I went to Vegas for a girls trip thanks to a gift from my husband for Mother's Day. I remember him saying when he gave it to me that he wasn't sure if I would like it and I was like this is the best present ever and I still feel that way. I love my girls more than anything but I am a huge proponent of having alone time. I really feel that for me, I am a better mom because I take time to do things for myself. I know that it doesn't work for everybody, but it works for me and luckily my sisters, sister-in-law and friend were also down for some fun. I got in a 4-mile run before leaving for the airport Wednesday morning. We got to our hotel but our room wasn't ready so we checked our bags in and headed to Hofbrauhaus which was conveniently right outside our hotel. We had some big German beers and pretzels and it was a great start to the weekend. We also decided we need to go back there one year for Octoberfest. After that we picked up some alcohol and then were able to check into our room. We only headed out to the pool for like a half hour before it started raining but we really needed to start getting ready so it wasn't too bad. By the time we all got ready to go we didn't have a ton of time for dinner so we just grabbed some sandwiches before heading to see Britney Spears. I actually had a really good time at the concert despite the fact that it is heavily choreographed and she doesn't even actually sing. I know that sounds horrible, but the songs are still sooo much fun that you can't help but have a good time. By the time the show was over, I had been up for like 21 hours so I knew I had to call it a night if I had any change of going out the next night. I am so glad I did because the next night was a ton of fun too and I will share more tomorrow!

Sephora Play!: August 2017

My play box came yesterday and it is probably my favorite box yet. It came in the cutest little makeup geek bag which is perfect for this back to school time of year. This month's box came with one hair product, a volume mist by Alterna Hair Care. I will definitely be bringing this to Vegas with me next week. I was most excited to open the box and see a micro mini beauty blender. I have wanted one for a while and already used it this morning. I almost bought Clinique lash primer the other day so I am glad that came in this box. I am really excited to try the foundation stick from hourglass and have never tried the burberry perfume before. I have also recently been obsessed with Korres products so I was very excited to get the elixir from them. I have never heard of it before but they have never done me wrong. Can't wait to use the rest of these products!

Weekend in Review

After our first full week back to school we were definitely ready for the weekend. I had soccer on Friday night and so I enjoyed sleeping in on Saturday morning. It was raining when we woke up so the girls played in the rain for a little bit. It was so humid, I was sweaty while just watching them there. After it dried up we went for a quick walk in which Roi got too tired and quit walking. After our hot walk we met my mom and sister at the mall so the kids could play in the A/C. Grandma spoiled them at the Disney Store a.k.a. the princess store. Saturday night everyone came over for dinner to watch the Cardinals spring training game. On Sunday morning I ran 5 miles in the rain with my sister. We saw some frogs and survived the humidity. Aspen got invited to a birthday party so we headed over there Sunday afternoon. The girls had a blast. Everly could have spent hours jumping in off of the diving board if we would have let her. By the time it was Sunday night we were all exhausted and ready for bed at like 7:30 p.m!

First Day of School

This week Everly went back to school and started 1st grade. She was very excited, especially after attending Meet the Teacher last week. One of her best friends who was in her class last year as well as the before care and summer camp she attends was also in her class so that definitely made her more excited. She kept asking me how many more days until school started. She picked out a new dress that my mom bought her to wear to school and packed her lunch with Justin Sunday night. Justin and I both planned to go into work late on Monday morning so we could walk her in. She was not nervous at all. I just really hope she has a great year and is always this happy about going back to school.
