My Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

I know, I know, this has been done to death, but hey there is still 6 days of the sale and you never know if you find something that you haven't seen yet. So I'm linking up with some other The Blended Blog ladies and we're all showing you what we got at the #nsale.

Lounge Wear

1 // 2 // 3  // 4  // 5

Not part of the sale, but I also have it in another style in blue/grey that's how comfy these things are. I wear #2 to on every flight, so much so that I got it in another color. I wear it all the time, but dark blue doesn't always go with everything, so i got a dark grey color.

I have to apologize for all of the pictures, I did this about 30 minutes before we left for our trip, I opened the boxes, threw on the clothes and took quick pictures.

I haven't gotten everything yet, and I didn't think you wanted to see me in #3 and #5, so here is #4 they could be one of the softest PJ's ever! I highly recommend them, I'm showing some self restraint and not buying them in any and all colors.

I really wanted to get these and these but thought I should start with these first and see how it goes. But both of them, look like great choices as well.


1 / 2 / 3  / 4 / 5  / 6  / 7

I haven't received all of them as of yet, but I have received two of them #1 and #5

#1 is SUPER comfortable, I highly recommend!

#5 is super soft, but was just too long on me and I knew I wouldn't wear something this long and tight. But a very good basic tee if that's your thing.

  1  / 2  /  3 / 4  /  5 /  6 /  7 

Here's the low down on the dresses.  This one is SUPER cute in the picture, but it was so tight on my arms I felt like I was in a straight jacket. Had to return.

This is in a size small, I wasn't sure what size I was going to be in this, sometimes I size up to get the length. I'm not sure how I feel about this dress. I don't think it does much for the figure, ya know?

Here it is in medium. Again I think it doesn't so much for the figure, so I think I'll return it. I saw it on a friend and it look fantastic on her, goes to show not everything looks good on everyone.

This one I REALLY like, something I don't have, and it eases me into the off the shoulder thing, but wondering if it's too young for me? Does this make me look like I am old trying to be young? Give me your thoughts, it is sitting in my think about it pile.

I have always wanted a jumper. I love this one, but Mr. saw it and said, hell back it goes. I think it's the length, maybe if it was above the knee, way above the knee it would look better.

It's a pants suite! I know, crazy right? I think it's super cute.

This is another one, where I'm not sure if it's me trying to be too young? I think it's super cute, something I don't already own, but maybe it's just a little too big? But that's the style right?


1 / 2 / 3 / 4

I ended up getting #3

And #4. I find that if I buy regular size cropped jeans, they are perfect length for me, yep my legs are that short!

I really wanted  #1 and these but they were out of my size before the sale was public to everyone, so I missed out, but I am watching them to see if they every do go on sale! I love this brand, so if you're in the market for some great black jeans, these are your best bet.


1 / 2 / 3 / 4 / 5

Oh shoes, how I love thee, I can't even stand it. I finally made the decision to get the Frye boots, they have the wide calf, yay! But what I didn't expect, that they would be too tall, what should be at riding boot, was more like over the knee boot, waaahhh!! After 3 years, I finally make the decision and they don't fit, darn! So I went with the Tory Burch sandal. I haven't received them yet, so I'm really hoping that they work out. If they don't, then I'm going to get the flats. So there's that. 5 isn't in the Anniversary sale, but defninitely deserves a mention. They were in the sale last year, and my friend got them and loves them. She gets compliemnts on them every time she wears them. And they are so comfy that she bought all three colors. Another friend of ours has two colors based off of her raving review. So I HAD to get a pair too, they're only $59.99! What a deal right? And I have to admit, they are really comfortable as far as heels go. They are in this picture with a dress.

And this picture with pants.

Random things, I really want, but can't afford everything

1 /  2 / 3 / 4 / 56 / 7 / 8

As I am typing this, I think I might go get the clutch for some friends for Christmas, and then maybe I will get the Living Proof shampoo, I just got their dry shampoo recently to try and it's pretty dang awesome, I'm assuming their shampoo is just as awesome. Now that I'm returning some stuff, I think it's totally justifiable to buy some more right?

So what did you get? Anything I need to get that I missed? Hop on over to Allison to see what she got!

Last Thursday was Mini Fox's last day of Preschool and on Friday her school had a little performance. It was so cute, this is the 4th year that we've gone to it, and I'm just smiling ear to ear with how cute the kids are. Every kid is able to perform something and this year Mini Fox wanted to do two things. She dance to Single Ladies and she also sang Let it Go, which funny enough, Baby Fox also did for his performance for his first year of preschool there.
Waiting for the performance to start.
The kids doing the pledge and singing America the Beautiful.

Dancing to Single Ladies

She wanted to sing with her doll (it sings the song), and we couldn't hear her, so Baby Fox stepped up and held the mic for her, it was so sweet.

Doing the twist. Her teachers make all of the clothes for the kids.

Family picture! I have no idea what the kids are looking at.


Some random things happening.

Went on a super fun MNO last week. It was much needed, and I ended up staying out till after Midnight! Luckily I worked from home so only had to be up at 6am, phew.

It was a smaller group this time, but we had a blast, I could talk to these ladies forever.

One of the girls had it right and got this for dinner, Nutella pizza, out of this world good.

Birthday girl!

So glad these ladies are in my life. See the shoes on the girl with the shorts those shoes from Nordstrom, recently. They were on sale for last years anniversary sale, and the girl on the far left, has them in ALL of the colors they are so comfortable. As a matter of fact, she is wearing them in taupe. I bought the black ones. I'll keep you posted on comfy-ness. They are currently 33% off which makes them only $59! The girl with the ripped jeans, has on a #NSALE purchase, and says hers are comfy too.

The only picture I took this weekend was when we went to my aunt and uncles house for dinner. We got to sit outside, it was so nice, and the kids rode their scooters around. You can see the blurry kids in the background.

Showing of their skills.

We ended up staying until 11pm! The kids did great, knocked out on the way home and slept until 9am, it was awesome.

As usual, I'm linking up with The Blended Blog for some Friday Love, where we share things around the blogging world, hoping to spread the love a bit. First up is Carrie from Curly Crafty Mom, she and some other bloggers are doing 12 months of wreaths. You know my love for wreaths runs deep, love her Magnolia wreath this month. Look how awesome it looks on her white front door.

Here are the other wreaths from the other ladies this month as well. 
Mom Home Guide - Colorful Bandana Summer Wreath
The Southern Couture - Back to School Themed Wreath Using School Supplies
Dazzled While Frazzled - DIY Denim Nautical Ocean Wreath

Heather came up with a dupe recipe to Levain Bakery Chocolate Chip cookies, how amazing do these things look?! Seriously, I'm making these soon!

Amber a contributor to Chirping Moms writes about her 5 hidden Gems of San Diego, some I haven't heard of and it's just a hop, skip and a jump away. I'm definitely checking some of these things out!


 And then some videos that I've been loving lately.

If you have ever wonder about hair extensions, Kaley Melisaa does a great job of answering every question you have ever wondered about extensions.

Man, apparently I need to step up my photo taking game, lol! This is pretty awesome, watch at the end how she seamlessly kicks up her purse from the ground, #goals

Haha, this is SOO me, when Mr. and I first met he really had to slow it down for me, I mean he's 9 inches taller than me.

What are your plans this weekend?! Wish us luck, we're driving 500+ miles this weekend! The first one of 3 long car rides, this one is the shortest...what were we thinking?!

Christmas In July

Happy Thursday Foxy Friends! Today I have a special. Last year The Blended Blog ladies did a Christmas in July and we decided to repeat it again this year! So funny, we use this program called Elfster, have you used it before? It's a free program, you enter in everyone's email address, then they accept the invite and then Elfster partners everyone up, and it stores everyones mailing address and a wish list if they put stuff in it. It's super fun because then everyone gets someone different and no one knows, who got who.

So guess who Elfster drew for who got me? Yep, that's right Lana again! I think we're meant to be Besties, even Elfster knows it. I wear the necklace she got me last year weekly, if not a few times a week. This year she got me the best gifts, and things I wouldn't have bought for myself!

First thing's first, the card. Super cute right? Andrea bought these for everyone on our Toronto trip. I ALMOST sent my Blended Blogger this same card, hehe.

Such sweet sentiments.

First thing I opened were these super cute earrings. I have been wanting to get a pair of tassle earrings but haven't because...I'm not sure why. Glad that Lana did it for me.

How perfect is this shirt? Expect to see it on the blog soon!

And this, super fun, but I don't know if I have the stomach to particpate in doing it. The kids on the other hand? Are all over this and can't wait to try it!

Now head on over to Whitney's blog to see how I spoiled her this "Christmas" or hop on over to The Blended Blog to see who got who and what everyone got each other!
