Fall Transitional Pieces from Walmart

Even though it’s still 98 degrees here in Georgia, when I saw all the new fall clothes at WalMart I just couldn’t resist! All the fall colors and flowy fabrics just got me so excited!

I grabbed a few pieces that can be worn both now and later, which I think is great when you live in a place with crazy weather like we have… So, if you’re craving fall fashion, check out my favorite pieces below!

This dress is so perfect for fall. The colors are beautiful and I love the detail of the embroidery! I paired it with my favorite espadrilles, but it would be so cute with sandals or booties. As it gets cooler, you could pair it with leggings & boots for a cozier style.

The dress is available in 3 other prints, including leopard!

I think this top is so darling! I love the tiered design and the mustard color is SO fall. You could wear this with jeans & wedges like I did here, but I think it would work with shorts & sandals too! Such a cute top and it comes in 3 other colors, including denim.

This is my absolute favorite top from my little haul. I LOVE the pattern and the asymmetrical cut. It’s just so stylish and simple. All the right colors for fall! It pairs perfectly with these jeans & booties, but I think it would be great with denim shorts on the warmer days! It comes in 3 other designs, so lots of variety to choose from!

This entire outfit is from WalMart and I don’t think it could be more perfect. The lavender color of the top is just so different than anything I have in my closet currently, and I was really drawn to it! It comes in 3 other colors, including a stunning shade of teal! I’ll definitely be going back for that one.

These jeans have been a staple all summer. I can’t recommend them enough!

And these booties… I die. They are so comfortable and come in 2 other colors! And at less than $15, you could just get all 3 :)

Feeling Myself Fall: Give Away!

Hello Everyone!

This weekend I was looking at our calendar over the next few months and I realized Halloween is only 10 weeks away! That is absolutely crazy to me. Time really is flying by and before we know it, it will be 2020.

I am so excited for the upcoming holiday season, but I know that with the holidays comes parties, festivals, and all sorts of fun things! I really want to look and feel my best going into the holidays, and Halloween is kind of the “kick off” to the season. I thought it would be fun to do a motivational/accountability challenge with any of my friends or followers who wanted to join! This isn’t about weight loss, but just feeling good and if we lose weight along the way… That’s win-win!

And at the end, I’m going to do a give away for people who interact and participate! Why wouldn’t you want to join me?!

Fall Cleaning, Surviving Irma & a Hurricane Slumber Party!

In my last blog, I mentioned that we were doing Fall Cleaning this weekend, and I wasn't kidding! We spent almost the entire day cleaning and getting things ready for the change of seasons.

I washed and ironed (whut) all the curtains in our house, cleaned the oven, dusted all the fans and light fixtures, cleaned all the baseboards and crown molding and flipped our mattress.

B literally cleaned every window in our entire house (22 in all), as well as the window sills and the screens. He was my hero! It was a lot of work, but the windows are so clean and clear now! They look so good.

We were worn slap out after all that work. I slept like a baby until Sunday morning.

Sunday after church, we had lunch with my parents. B grilled steaks and my mom pan roasted asparagus, mushrooms and onions. It was all so good! I made this salad platter, too. This is my favorite way to set up salads when serving them at parties/get togethers. I had romaine, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, red onion and green bell pepper from my garden! I made a creamy Italian dressing to go on the side. Easy and delicious!

We knew Irma was scheduled to hit Sunday night, so B went to Walmart to get some snacks, water bottles and some other things we needed around the house.

Josh, Erika & Trey came over to wait out the storm. We watched Irma coverage and grilled hot dogs and hamburgers before we decided to watch some movies.

First we watched Signs. I don't know why, but we discussed this movie when we hung out a few weeks ago and we've been saying we were going to watch it ever since. I remember being really scared of this movie when I was a kid, but it really wasn't that scary this go around. After Signs, we watched an 80's "horror" movie called "The Wraith". It was really bad. LOL But it was funny to watch it with our pals. I do not recommend.

Monday we woke up and nothing was going on yet. It was rainy, but not much else was happening. B made me a latte and we watched more Weather Channel. I'm telling you, I was glued.

Once everyone else was awake, I decided to make breakfast. Pumpkin and regular buttermilk pancakes with bacon. Easy and delish. After we ate, we settled in for a Harry Potter movie marathon.

We took a break for a brief intermission in between the movies to check out what was going on outside. The wind was really picking up around 1PM. We had a few branches and a couple of limbs fall, but nothing too crazy. We were very lucky. Our neighbor had a tree fall on her house. I can't even imagine.

And then... The lights went out. We moved out from the den to the dining room and started playing games. We played Uno... Katie was the dark horse and dominated us.

And then, Taboo -- My personal fave! The girls won!

Maxx really doesn't freak out during bad weather, but he was seemingly nervous yesterday. I think he just knew something was going on, but he didn't understand. I pulled a chair up to the table and put his bed on it, so he could be close to us. He was very happy! : )

To finish our game marathon, we played Monopoly for 4 1/2 hours... I have so many memories of playing this game with my family, but it's not my fave. Josh dominated the game, and I had terrible luck and kept rolling to the corners and drawing crap cards. Ha!

It was really fun having everyone over for basically 24-hours. I have a dream that one day we will all live on a commune together and that's what this felt like. LOL Thankfully, we got power back, right around 10:30PM. I was so happy to have it back, but I know a lot of people in town are still without. Props to GA Power! They even texted us to let us know power had been restored to our area. So nice!
