Hi friends! Happy Friday! What do you have going on this weekend? It’s Rodeo Break – it’s an AZ thing – but we’re staying in town. Maisey got spayed yesterday (wahhhhhhhh) so we’re letting her rest and recover. If you have any tips, please send them my way! I ordered her this little recovery suit that she can wear instead of the cone. 


When I carried her inside after picking her up, we snuggled on the couch for about an hour like this. Poor baby. 

Some exciting news: my brother GOT MARRIED this week!

Trevor went to Las Vegas with his girlfriend on 2/22/22 and they eloped! We celebrated at my mom’s house with lots of champagne and cake, and they’ll have a wedding reception/celebration next year. I’m so happy for them and absolutely love that they just went for it. 🙂 Especially after everything that’s happened the past two years, I’m all about doing the thing that brings you joy and happiness. 

– Before I head into this week’s faves post, I wanted to share the girls’ updated rooms with you! We re-did their rooms because so much of the stuff in there was from when they were toddlers. They both wanted an update and I love how they came out! I also love that they still look like *kids rooms.* It’s so common to see rooms on Instagram and Pinterest that are completely neutral colors and look like a 20-year old professional could like there (which if it works for you, live your best life), but ours definitely still have a strong kid vibe. 🙂 

I got them each new cooling bamboo sheets for their beds, and they picked out the themes. 

Liv picked a fox theme (which she’ll likely outgrow in the next couple of years, but she was really into it)


(bedding is here, rest of the decor was from Target and Bed, Bath and Beyond)

(I ordered some very cute pics of her and her friends, her and P, and a baby fox to hang over her bed. I’m also going to spray paint the frames to match the new color scheme)

and P went for a horse theme. 

(Bedding here, pouf here, all art is from Etsy and Hobby Lobby)

This corner in P’s room turned out so well!

After lurking it forever, we finally tried Butcher Box and LOVE it. I’m very particular about where we buy meat, and love that their meat is humanely raised with grass-fed, wild, and organic options. We recently got an extra deep freezer for the garage, so we’ve packed it with Butcher Box meats, veggies, grains, and all of the fun frozen stuff from Costco that we didn’t have room to store in our regular freezer. You can use this link to check it out and get $30 off + ground beef for liiiiife.

Fashion + beauty:

Got this Parker dress in my latest RTR Unlimited shipment. I could wear it to dinner with the family on Sunday while it was still in the 80s… it’s been super cold the rest of the week, but I was grateful for a little glimpse of spring!

*The events in Ukraine and around the word weigh heavily on my heart. I am praying for the families, the military, our world leaders, and for peace.*
