5 Things That Will Probably Change Your Life

OH Monday...never a fan but even more so when the summertime starts rolling around. The sunshine...the pooltime...grilling in the backyard...I could handle that every single day, not just Saturdays and Sundays. Can I get an amen?!

SO because its the most dreaded day of the week, I figured I'd try to lift your spirits with a few things I 1,000% believe you need to know about. Will they change your life? Probably not...so I apologize for the false advertisement...

First things first, this dress.  Let it be known this is not a maternity dress, but as you can see, it can easily be worn with or without a little baby bump. I styled it with a teal statement necklace and gold flips flops and got so many compliments when I wore it out for our anniversary dinner! And best of all, one of you lucky people reading this has the opportunity to win a $25 gift certificate to Ruby Cross Boutique where you can purchase your very own! All you have to do is follow Ruby Cross on Instagram and a comment letting me know that you do!

TWO. Cinnamon roll waffles. WHERE HAVE THESE BEEN ALL MY LIFE AND WHY DIDN'T I TRY THIS SOONER??!! Here's how its done: turn on your waffle iron, spray it with cooking spray, smash a regular cinnamon roll between your hands, flattening it out and place it in your waffle iron. Allow it to cook for as long as you would usually cook a waffle. Drizzle the icing on top and, well...you get this plate of fantasicalness. I'm pretty sure Beau wanted to marry me all over again when he took his first bite and after this, I don't blame him. ;)

THREE. Sofia Maxim dog collars worn by the beautiful Oakley Howard. ;) As if the design alone isn't enough, the fact that the name tag slides on the collar, rather than something dangling and jingling every second of every day had me at "hello." Perhaps I'm bias but I think she could really start a career in the collar modeling industry...no?

FOUR. I have but two words for any of you expecting mommas out there...Destination Maternity. I came across this gem for the first time this weekend and hit what felt like the mother-load of maternity clothes that are not only adorable and can (hopefully) be worn after pregnancy, too, but their prices are fairly reasonable and they had, by far, the largest selection of maternity clothes I've yet to find...in a retail setting, anyways. Per usual, whatever I found, I bought it in every color they offered because that's what I do. For those of you in Houston, they have a location in the Galleria but for anyone not residing in the greater Houston area, you can visit them online.

And FIVE. Today is the LAST day to be entered to win a $50 gift certificate to Oakleigh Rose...where you can find your very own Peaches & Cream Bow Maxi Dress! (Seen below) Details here. Winner will be contacted tomorrow!

That's all I gots. Until next time, friends...

  1. I love that dog collar. I even got my dog a plastic dog tag hoping it would cut down on the "jingle". It helped some over the metal ones but not a lot. I'll have to look at that collar.

  15. Following Ruby Cross on Insta (@larharedmo). Loving that dress! At just over 10 weeks pregnant, I've been surprised at how quickly I've started to show since it took FOREVER to start showing with my first pregnancy, therefore maxi dresses have become even more of a staple in my wardrobe!

I have the hardest time buying maternity clothes online! Those shorts are perfect, though, and I need them! Do you feel like they fit true to size?
