Happy Friday friends. Oh what a busy time in the D House.  I plan on doing more of a life update next week, but just know that (1) the Las Vegas Aces WNBA team's first home game is this Sunday and Wayne is the "Fan Correspondent" for them so he will be doing all the home games just like he does the VGK games (2) the Vegas Golden Knights are going to the Stanley Cup which starts on Monday and runs for the next 3 weeks, and (3) our not so little girl, Hailey finished her last day of 1st grade yesterday, which officially makes her a 2nd grader! Wah!! Where does the time go?!

Anyways, I just wanted to share a few things I am loving lately. I got these Tory Burch sandals a few weeks ago. They were on major sale, so that is the only reason why I got them. They are a major splurge, but I love them so much! #boujee

I am loving these cookies...Nutter Butter Peanut Pattie. #addicting
I got this letter board from Target a few months back (It's black and gold, what can I say). I'm trying to figure out what I should put on it for this next and final round against the Washington Capitals. #nocapsno

Anyways, Happy Friday. I hope y'all have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend. I am very much looking forward to my 3 day weekend. It will be spent by the pool, getting some organization done around the house, watching sports of course and eating some great food!!!!

Dear Vacation,

While I loved every minute of you (minus the humidity), I am happy to be home. There is something wonderful about being home and getting back to the norm of life. Mostly I missed my bed.


Dear Starbucks,

I am sorry I broke up with you. I just need a break. It's me, not you.


Dear Fatty Foods,

Why do you have to taste so good? I love you and hate you all at the same time.


Dear Griffin,

You were so good on the plane ride. I really have no complaints. Next time though you will have your own seat.


Dear Hailey,

You will be 6 on Monday. 6! You will have to use both hands now when someone asks you how old you are. Wahhh!


Dear Husband,

You are my everything and a rockstar!


Dear Weekend,

Please don't go by too fast. I desperately need you to stick around a little while longer. You will be busy, but fun.


Dear Sleep,

I miss you. Griffin is still not sleeping through the night. Hopefully one day? One can still hope, right?


Dear Job,

I am sorry I broke up with you. It's me, not you. I promise.

Loving my new Apple watch band. I found it on Amazon HERE. They have other colors, so I might get more in the future. #cuteaccesory

This has become a regular occurrence in our house. He doesn't actually go potty or anything, but he likes sitting on there. So that's what we do. We sit. And wait. One of these days he will go and I rather have him sit and do nothing than be scared of it and want nothing to do with it. So this is a win in my book. #pottytalk
We're going to Claim Jumper for their Mother's Day brunch buffet. I'm so excited!! #brunchislife
We're going to Helldorado Days tonight for a bit. Wayne has to host something, so we're gonna make it a family night! #helldoradodays
We have lots of fun stuff to look forward to coming up:
1. 14 days until we move
2. 26 days until Hailey is a 1st grader
3. 27 days until we take our summer trip to Minnesota
Hope everyone has a great weekend!!

So it's been awhile!! Happy Friday friends!!! Here are just a few things that I am loving this week and looking forward to!!

Loving this new music from Lady Gaga!!

I also love Ariana Grande's new single.

This right here. She loves her Daddy so much and it just warms my heart.

We went to Adventuredome in Circus Circus this past weekend for the first time. It's comparable to Nickelodeon Universe in Mall of America where they have adult/kid rides and of course food and snacks. Hailey has become a little more brave with rides and she had so much fun. I can't wait until Griffin is a little older to see all the fun they have together.

I'm so excited for fall TV to return. While there are a few shows over the summer that I LOVE, there is nothing quite like FALL TV!!! AND...Nashville is coming back! #Nashies

I know she is a Disney star, but I LOVE Ariana Grande. I also love Jimmy Fallon., so this is a perfect video. I am not going to admit how many times I watched this. LOL.

I want this bomber jacket oh so bad in PLUM! I don't really have a fall/winter jacket for here in Vegas, so maybe that will be my excuse!! Haha. My WANT list is growing though...does anyone know where a money tree is?

We were supposed to go to San Diego for my summer work party, but decided at the last minute not to go. So instead, we will be at home this weekend and watching UFC 203. So excited!!!

Oh yea, football is back baby!!! We bleed purple in our house.

August was a rough month for us in many ways, so I am welcoming September with open arms. Also, it's the start of cooler temps here in Vegas, which is also a plus!

I am looking forward to a few festivals at the end of the month. I'm hoping my friend Katie can come out for the 3 day fest that is Route 91. We were supposed to go last year, but that didn't happen. I'm so excited!!! I think a pair of cowboy boots are in my future!!!

Hope everyone is well and I hope to update soon! Have a great weekend!

These are some of my favorites this week:


My favorite dish this week is THIS one!! Seriously, you won't be able to resist these brussel sprouts!!


I also posted about my fave song at the moment! If you want to see the official music video...go HERE! P.S. The FULL album is now out and I can't wait to listen to the whole thing!!!

I love everything and WANT everything on THIS website! Especially this:

Cause it just AIN'T!

We're about half way done with this series and LOVE it!!! I am a huge Sam Elliott fan and was excited when I found out he plays the Father role on this show. Also, can Ashton Kutcher do no wrong?

Anything else new and exciting on Netflix? Or Hulu that you would recommend?

This so fits my month year.

I love THIS article so so so much!

And THIS one brings tears to my eyes just thinking about it!!

My favorite purchase this week is actually a secret. I purchased our Father's Day gift from me and the kids to my Husband. Yes, people I know it's only mid-May, and I'm way ahead of the game. It's the first time EVER that I'm ahead of the game and I hope he LOVES it!!! I haven't said anything to him and the only other person I've told is Hailey. She's REALLY good at keeping secrets about presents. Like REAL good. The only way he will know that I bought something for him is if he reads this blog post. Haha. Or when it shows up to the house in the mail in a couple weeks. I'll post about it after he opens it. Woohoo!!

And no, Wayne, if you are reading this, you cannot open it early. You have to wait for your special day!!

I am so excited to go to the Billboard Music Awards this weekend!!! I've never been to an awards show, so this is a first! Woohoo! Brit Brit is opening the show!!

We watched this movie last weekend. It was WAY better than what I thought it was going to be. We watched it as a family and even though there is some risk-ay scenes that we had Hailey close her eyes for, she was glued to it and absolutely loved it.

I was so excited to see this yesterday:

Anybody else excited for this revival?

We took Griffin swimming for the first time last weekend. It was warm outside, so we decided to try. He LOVES bath time, but obviously the pool is different. But he LOVED pool time, too!

That's pretty much all for this week! I hope everyone has a great weekend!

Happy Friday Friends! This is my week in pictures:

We ran some errands and because it was in the mid 70's here in Vegas, we got shakes from McDonalds. I always forget how delicious strawberry shakes can be. They really hit the spot.

[Do not worry. We were parked in our garage when this was taken. I do not just let my child roam around the car unbuckled.]

We celebrated a birthday at work and enjoyed this chocolate cake. It's called the Chocolate Motherlode Cake and it was DELICIOUS! That's my small piece on the bottom.

I am loving how snuggly Griffin is. Nothing more peacful than naps and snuggle time. This picture and his face melt my heart.

With that said, this is currently how I am feeling:

I finally got the paperwork for the kids to go to the Kids Club at the gym. Hopefully now I can get it filled out and get my booty moving. I want to go a couple nights during the week, too, but I just don't know if it's feasible at this time.


Our passports came! It only took 2 1/2 weeks. Yay! Now I have my certified birth certificate back, which I will need in order to get my Nevada drivers license. Now I am just waiting on the certified copy of our marriage certificate. So many hoops to jump through just to get a new license.

We went to see Pitbull again. His residency started here again on the 12th. We got to meet him again, too. He kissed me twice on the cheek. He puts on SUCH a great show and is one class act.

Before the show we met up with my cousin, Nate and his wife, Kayla. They were in town vacationing in Las Vegas for a few days. We ate at PBR Rock Bar, which is in the Miracle Mile Shops attached to Planet Hollywood. It was so good to see them and catch up.

I wore this for St. Patrick's Day.
It is significant for the following:

1) Green shirt for the holiday;
2) Capris (because the high was 81); and
3) they are a size 12; which is exciting for because I have been in 14's since after Griffin was born and have been struggling with the whole baby weight loss thing since he was born. Hence all the gym talk. 

Yay for the small things in life, right?!

And today. Can't go fast enough. I am very much looking forward to the weekend!

Have a great weekend y'all!
