Monday Musings

Happy Monday friends! We had the most gorgeous weekend here. The weather finally felt like bona-fide summer and was nice and warm. We tried to spend as much time as possible outside soaking it all up. We walked 7 miles on Saturday morning and then a little less on Sunday morning before getting ready for church. We were in a habit of doing what we called our “bagel walk” on Saturday’s and would walk to a nearby bagel shop, get brunch and then walk home. Well we decided we didn’t need to do that every Saturday and have now adopted a stop at Starbucks instead. We share an iced coffee and get 2 big waters.

Of course we then undid all of our walking by meeting friends for Mexican last night and eating way too many chips. Oh well, you only live once. Right?!?!

I’m taking a deep breath and getting ready to tackle the Nordstrom sale that starts later this week. I’ve intentionally not mentioned it yet because if you’re anything like me, you’re probably already slightly sick of hearing about it. How can a retail sale be so exhausting? HA!

There’s a part of me that says, don’t bother but the other part of me just can’t let it go. What say you? Do y’all want to see try-ons and purchases from the sale? It’s almost like a blogger right of passage. LOL

The key to early access to the Nordstrom sale is to be a card member. Honestly, 2 years ago at the beginning of the sale is when I got my Nordstrom card. There really are benefits to it and no down side. There’s no fee and plenty of perks. Win-win!

This is taken right from the application page:

  • Earn 2 points per dollar spent in stores and online at Nordstrom, Nordstrom Rack, HauteLook and Trunk Club.
  • Get a $40 bonus Note when you make any purchase with us on your new card the day you’re approved.

So to sum it up, you earn Nordstrom notes, free alterations, early sale access and at least one triple points day. Really, there’s nothing to lose. If you want to go ahead and get early access, click here or on the picture above to apply for your own card and start earning.

I love fresh flowers and some of my favorites are tulips. We went by Trader Joe’s yesterday and among some of the things we picked up were two bunches of yellow tulips.

A friend at bible study brought flowers for a brunch one day in the cutest container and I loved it. I’d been on the hunt ever since and finally happened upon it at Hobby Lobby.

Isn’t it adorable? It’s the perfect accompaniment on my coffee table.

I couldn’t find the exact one online but here’s a similar one. (not an affiliate link)

Well that about wraps it up for today. Hope you have a wonderful Monday and your week starts off on the right foot.
