It's Closing Time....

This past Tuesday we FINALLY closed on our home!

We are so very, very excited to start making this house truly our home.  With the help of family and friends it will definitely be coming along.

Below is a photo dump of the final product and us with our amazing, wonderful realtor, Carolyn Swann!

Magical Beach Bachelorettte Party!

As I mentioned in my previous post this past weekend I was in Orlando, FL & Naples, FL celebrating my friend Heather's bachelorette.  When she got engaged she said she'd like to go to Universal Studios and check out Happy Potter World...of course being the nerd that I am I was completely on board with this!  This idea blossomed into a weekend in Florida with Friday spent at the park and then driving 3 hours to Naples, FL where her Mom graciously let us stay at the family condo.

There were 6 of us at the park and then 5 more joined us at the condo in Naples.  We had so much fun and Heather swears up and down she had a great time so I think the final fling before the ring was successful!

Side note: I would totally be fine making this a girls trip every couple of years...hint, hint.

Fun on the beach

Drinks with the bachelorette and her sister

I think the drink matches your eyes Heather!

So mysterious.....

Group Shot!

Last but not least our farewell photo...I will definitely be back!

Stitch Fix #3

My third Stitch Fix arrived June 10th, and my husband arrived in Texas that same day so that we could close on the house yesterday (saving that for another post).

I don't have any photos for this fix because I left Thursday night for Orlando, FL to celebrate Heather's bachelorette weekend (saving that for another post as well) and I had to make my selection of items to keep by Saturday...doh.  I have the style cards for each of the items below.  I'll be sure to showcase the two items I ended up keeping in another post. 

Here is a break down of the items I received:

1. Market & Spruce - Bexley Smocked Henley Knit Top {returned}

I have a shirt almost identical to this one so I just couldn't justify keeping it although it was VERY comfortable.

2. Kensie - Rebekah Contract Detail Blazer {kept}

From the moment I put this blazer on I was in LOVE!  It is so lightweight that I can definitely were it in Texas at the office and not die of sweat between the car and the office. I think White/Cream many be my new neutral this year.

3. Kut From The Kloth - Corynne Distressed Boyfriend Short {returned}

I just do not like myself in shorts.  Working on losing some weight before I venture into this realm again.

4. Market & Spruce - Berg Pintuck Detail Top {kept}

My stylist knows the way to my heart....soft fabrics!  This shirt is incredibly soft and just so comfortable to wear AND it's work appropriate!

5. Margaret M - Christiana Skirt {returned}

I really liked this skirt.  It had the prettiest details, but there was no lining and for the price of approx. $80 I just couldn't justify that kind of money on a skirt with very little material.

For my feedback to my stylist this time I told her to continue with the colorful items and to include a scarf next time.
