Fabulous Find Friday!

I'm sorry my blogging has been scarce this week. Maybe it's because I've been completely exhausted from weeks of traveling and baby showering. Maybe it's because of this rainy weather that makes me want to waste my life away watching the Bachelorette, So You Think You Can Dance and that unfortunate incident of Toddlers and Tiaras. I've already repented. Or maybe it's just that my arms are tired from holding this little muffin....
The model got a little fussy towards the end of her photo shoot. It was hard to accommodate all of her demands but we did what we could. She kept saying things like, "polka dots aren't for everyone!" But we assured her she pulled them off nicely.... Diva.

Totally joking! I love that kid to pieces. It is amazing though how your arm gets sore after like 1 hour of holding them. I'm going to need to start with the arm weights...Speaking of holding babies, my friend L-Merc had her baby yesterday too! She and Bradley took pictures in the hospital together, how hilarious is that! (I told you all of my friends were prego!) She had a precious baby boy last night that I cannot wait to go meet! Maybe Luke and Avery are MFEO? I think so...

I digress...let's talk about shopping...I was looking through the Anthropologie website a few weeks ago and I was haphazardly putting things in my shopping cart if I liked them so I could revisit it later. When I got to the end of my online browsing journey I visited my shopping cart and found a few things that I really do like! They kind of run the gamut since we have a swimsuit, a trench coat and a bath robe in the same lot. It's a reflection of my life...all over the map. One minute I'm crying because Alex Wong was sent home from SYTYCD with an injury and the next I'm yelling at the Rangers for their 8th inning meltdown against the bottom dwellers of the AL East. I'm fragile...

Here are a few things to close out the Summer and move right into the fall. Although I'm not wishing away lazy days by the pool, sno cones and flip flops I'm always awaiting fall fun (and football season).

I love this swimsuit . I'm crazy about the polka dots and the ruffles!

This skirt is perfect for work, church, date night, girl's night, showers, maybe even a wedding...whatever floats your boat! It's hard to see on the black skirt but there is a cute tie around the waist.

I have a complete obsession with coats. Pea coats, trench coats, rain coats...I love them! Too bad I live in Texas where it is 90-107 degrees 75 percent of the year. But I love it here, I'm staying here, and I'll wear my coats with pride the other 25 percent of the year. :) I think this trench coat is darling and will be perfect for fall patio dinners and football games.


Finally, my mother in law got this robe for mother's day and it is as cute as can be! I love the stripes, I love the ruffled cuffs I love the super soft material...It basically had me at hello!

Happy Friday friends! You wouldn't think I would be this excited for a Friday after a 4 day weekend, but the closing bell can't get here fast enough! Hope you have a great weekend...

What are you doing to me?!?!? The sweet, tiny baby in polka dots with a giant bow on her head - my uterus hurts. Aches. Must have baby. I'm oh so jealous you have such a sweet little one to love on.

And the robe? Seriously, I don't know that we can be friends. I LOVE that robe. NEED that robe. I just don't know if I can spend $118 on a robe. Is it worth it???? It's so stinking cute!

I love summer but I also get excited about football season!!! Fall and spring are my favorites :-) Plus, this fall my hubby will be back from Iraq so I am REALLY looking forward to this fall!!! I could really use that bathing suit though to finish out summer...I am getting tired of the ones that I have been wearing all season!
