My First Cooking Class

Last night I took my first cooking class a The Girl Can Cook and I had a blast! I have never took a cooking class before so I was so excited when my childhood bestie invited me to be her cooking partner. I wasn't sure what to expect but I was thrilled to learn some new recipes and to change up my cooking patterns with using new to me ingredients. Our theme for the evening was Best Fish Tacos and more and all the dishes were so good!

Must Have Fall Basics

I am SO excited that next week will be August 1st which means that fall is (hopefully!) just around the corner and I can enjoy my favorite season of the year! I been slowly transitioning my wardrobe for the upcoming season and every year around this time before school starts, I like to clean out the closet for the boys and myself and really get an idea of what will work for the season and to get rid of items we no longer wear or fit. It also helps with back to school shopping and making sure we get pieces that the boys can really some good use from. With the recent Nordstrom anniversary sale and fall releases happening at some of my favorite retail stores, I have purchased some key pieces for fall that I feel could work with anyone. One Fall basic that I will for sure be wearing a lot this fall will be this black and white gingham dress from J. Crew Factory. It's a great fit and will be so cute with booties and then as it gets colder, you could easily layer on a cardigan or a military jacket.

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Early Access 2017

TODAY, people TODAY is one of my most favorite days of the year! It's finally the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale and I can't wait to share with you all of my absolute favorite picks from the sale this year! If you are unfamiliar with this sale, let me give you the lowdown friend. It's a sale that only happens ONE time a year where they mark down their NEW fall favorites at awesome prices. It's a great way to get a jumpstart on your fall wardrobe for a fraction of the cost. Unfortunately, in the great state of Oklahoma where I live, there isn't a Nordstrom close by so I will be shopping strictly online however, the plus side to that is Nordstrom offers easy returns and FREE SHIPPING always and if you have a Nordstrom Rack close by, you can return your items there with no problem at all.
