Sponsored: I have new favorite leggings!

Recently, I had the pleasure of getting a personal stylist to pick out an outfit for me. This was really an interesting concept to me considering that I rarely even style myself. But, Kat Smith of Agnes & Dora  reached out and said she could hook me up with a crazy great new outfit. I explained that I was a fluffy, chunky girl, and she assured me that she could make me look great nonetheless.

Y'all? She was right.

She sent me a pair of phases of the moon leggings and a cute new coral top to go with it. I excitedly pulled out the outfit and immediately gasped for two reasons: First, it was a cute, cute outfit. Second, I wasn't sure it would fit.

I sucked it up and slipped on the top. It worked and it was my color (at least that's what all the cool kids say). But, the exciting part of the new outfit was this--I loved, as in L O V E D, the leggings. Seriously. You know when you shave your legs and then climb into a bed with fresh, clean sheets on and you feel like your whole body is silk-i-fied? Yeah, that. With these leggings. WOW! They are so comfy! Also, I am a tall girl with a 33 1/2 inch inseam. Most leggings don't stay around my ankles. These? They did! WOOT!

I slayed the look in front of my Valentine's Tree.


I immediately loved them and quickly put them at the top of my list of greatest clothes ever invented. Then ... I washed them. I hung them to dry as instructed and I wore them again the very next week--same! The next week--same! They maintain their awesomeness!

If you have a chance to check out Kat with Agnes & Dora, I hope you do. You will NOT be disappointed. I am certainly going to be checking out more leggings, for sure. Cute and comfy? Yes, please!

Just Between Friends Sale Tulsa - ad

The good people at Just Between Friends-Tulsa (  http://www.tulsa.jbfsale.com/homeView.jsp)      Gave my sister and I passed to their presale on Saturday. My sister goes religiously to their sales. I hadn't been to one in quite a while because my kids are the size of grown people. I know!!

So, with my $50 gift certificate in hand and our presale passes, Rachel and I set about going to shop.

I really only had one thing that my niece requested: high heel shoes.

Should be easy enough ... Except ... There were a LOT to choose from. You know, a six year old considers pretty much anything that's not a flat to be a high heel, right? My sister, playing the part of momma and not aunt, had a much more practical list.




A few hours later, with my high heels and tap shoes in tow (what? Every kid who doesn't live with me needs tap shoes!), we walked out with the cutest clothes and accessories and books and games for my niece. Okay, fine, the games were for me.



So, how far does your dollar go? Well, we paid an average of $4.95 per tag. Pretty good deal, right? Wait ... It's better ... Probably half of our tags were multiple items: shirt and jeans, three pair of leggings, four tops! Amazing, right?



The Just Between Friends event runs this week at the Tulsa Expo Square. Grab your list and get your kiddos some awesome clothes at super prices!

Sponsored: Wrapy


My friends at Wrapy asked if I were interested in trying out one of their awesome baby wraps. Since my baby is twelve years old and almost as tall as I am, I really didn't have a use for a baby wrap. But, my great friend, Emily, had just had her sweet baby. So, I told Wrapy to send one my way--Emily and her sweetness and I would give it a whirl.

Now, when my kids were little, I'm sure people were wrapping babies, but my kids were always so squirmy and didn't like being held a whole lot (unless they were going to sleep or just waking up), so I had no idea how this thing would work or even if the baby would like it.

Before we get to the nuts and bolts of it, let me just cut to the chase: Emily and her sweet baby loved it!

Prior to the Wrapy, Emily had a baby carrier that was cumbersome and had some use issues in that it wasn't user friendly at all. The idea of wearing her baby was appealing to Emily, especially with two little helpers who are on the go. (Aren't they cuties?!)

So, I met with Emily and we studied the Wrapy and after understanding the logistics, Emily put the Wrapy on and was wearing her baby in under a minute.

So easy! Everyone is happy with the wrappy and Emily feels like she can keep up with all three of her sweeties without anything slowing her down.



Plus, who wouldn't want to have a cute baby as the coolest accessory, no matter what season!

This product is ASTM F2907 certified.  It's an international safety standard used in the US for wraps, slings, pouches, carrier shirts and many hybrid carriers.

You can order it through Amazon, where the reviews confirm what Emily and I find to be true--it's a great product!
