Back to reality after being gone for a week and half. I always return with mixed emotions. Ready to get home and sad to leave at the same time.
I hope your Easter was filled with family, friends, food, egg hunts and you paused to take time to remember the reason we celebrate Easter.
This was our first Easter with no kids at home so it was really different and strange. The weather was overcast and rainy so it didn’t make for a very “Eastery” day. Kent and I came home and just had a little lunch and then curled up on the sofa and watched TV and took a nap. You do know Sunday afternoons are made for napping, right? While we don’t routinely do that, it’s nice every once in a while to just relax.
Before I left Nashville, Friday night I cooked dinner for the kids and we had an early birthday celebration for Benny and Isabel. They will both have birthdays at the end of the month. Isabel is the daughter of Paul and Elizabeth (the friends I stay with).
Paul loves a good photobomb.
Katie went home Saturday morning with her friend Ross and had a big time doing lots of fun things. She said she had a lot of firsts. Riding a four wheeler, learning to canoe and shoot a gun.
Loft is having a great sale through today.
50% off EVERYTHING and FREE shipping with no minimum.
I took advantage of this sale yesterday and ordered a few things to try.
One of my favorite shirts is a popover I bought earlier this season from Loft by Lou & Grey. This one is very similar so I ordered it. Lou & Grey tends to run big so I size down in their clothing.
I ordered these pants in white. I love the Julie fit pants from Loft. If you are curvier they fit really well. I have quite a few pairs of them and would definitely say they are my go to when I want a dressier pair of pants.
Still on the hunt for the right pair of white jeans I ordered two pairs. Both are the curvy cut. I’m hopeful they will be a little more forgiving than the standard modern cut.
I’m also on the hunt for a new dress to wear to Benny’s graduation in a few weeks and thought this little lace number might do the trick. I’ve ordered some hot pink heels that will look great with it so let’s all cross our fingers that this is the one.
Be sure you check out this sale. It’s very rare that Loft offers free shipping with no minimum and 50% off with no exclusions.
Now it’s time for me to get to work and get caught up on all the things I missed while I was gone.
Have a great week friends!!

I love Popover tops too, can't wait to see your haul! Wow, I'll bet it was a different kind of Easter. We had all five of ours together on Saturday but unfortunately one of them had to leave that evening to go back to school so it was a rather odd Easter with just four of us but a sad as it is with them growing and leaving the nest I know that it is part of life and it makes our times together even more special! I know you feel the same way sweet lady! I hope this is a great week for you!
This is truly a weird limbo times in our lives. It's not bad, just different. I would have loved to have just stayed in Nashville for Easter, but didn't want Kent to be here alone. The holidays are all still wonderful, but the next time they'll be really exciting is once the grandbabies come on the scene? Have a great week Andrea!!!

Ugh! I don't NEED new clothes, but this deal is pretty sweet! Glad you had such a fun time with your kids, but it is always nice to get back into the routine swing of things. Have a fabulous Monday!
I love 50% off…now to see if any of the things are really keepers. 😉 The best news is 2 weeks from tomorrow we are going back for graduation and vacation. YIPPEE!!!
Ugh! I missed the sale! We had a very low key Easter weekend, too, and yes! Sunday afternoons are most assuredly known for naps!
Well, just think of the money you saved 😉 Welcome back friend!!!!
