Happy Friday, friends!

I mentioned yesterday that I've been a little quiet over here lately. Truth is, my stomach has been getting the best of me lately. The day after Lilli's birthday party, I had a full-blown attack and it wasn't until Wednesday that it calmed down enough for me to eat. I've been in and out of doctor's offices and going for testing at least once a week. I'm totally exhausted, so I took a quick break from blogging to rest up.

I still don't feel 100%, but I'm better than I was, and that's worthy of praise! 🙌

This Five on Friday is covering a couple weeks worth since my health is super boring. 😉

I obviously have to start with the biggest thing - Lilli turned two this week!!!

I held it together for her birthday party (post to come) and throughout the whole day before her birthday...until I was rocking her before bed (it's our special time together that we've done since she was itty bitty) and reading On the Night You Were Born. I totally lost it and I was crying so hard that I couldn't even finish the book. It hit me that I was rocking her for the last time as a one-year-old and it tore my heart up.

Isn't it crazy how motherhood affects your emotions??

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen my new hair color!

It totally shocked me because I haven't seen my natural hair color since middle school, and even then it was way lighter than this. But after a couple days, I totally fell in love with it and now I can't get enough of it! 😍
It also helps that I won't be in the salon near as often. 😉

Lindsay from Lindsay's Sweet World introduced me to the Salted Caramel Mocha after I admitted that I'm not a huge fan of PSL's. I don't know where it's been all my life but it's definitely my new favorite drink at Starbucks!

My new go-to order is a tall decaf (caffeine makes my stomach hurt) SCM with nonfat milk and no whip. Thanks, Lindsay!!

I. Am. So. Over. This. Heat!!! It seems like it stays hotter longer as each year passes and I loathe it. I'm not a huge summer fan to begin with and I'm craving cooler temps. Thankfully it's in the low 70's for the next couple days (a 25 degree cool off from earlier this week), but it's supposed to get hot again next week.

Only slightly crying.

But obvs going to live in fall clothes until the heat comes back.

Ps... this was taken before my new hair color. It's totally 20 shades darker now.

I also started decorating for Halloween this week! I seriously debated doing Halloween versus just doing fall (I usually do Halloween through October and then fall through Thanksgiving) because I've been so dang tired, but I've never not decorated for Halloween (or any holiday for that matter), and I couldn't let this year be the first. It totally helped that Lilli has been having a total ball in the house because it's so festive. Worth it. :)

→ Ps... Even though it's hotter than an active volcano outside, I'm still rocking fall clothes (colors, at the very least). The 40% off sale at the Lucky Duck Boutique just expired, however, you can still score 25% off your purchase with code STYLEME25!

  1. Ugh, I'm so sorry that you had another flare up. Thank goodness it didn't happen during Lilli's party. I hope things get better for you soon.

    And I'm so glad that you love the latte. I always get decaf, too, because decaf makes me crazy jittery. I'm sure all of the Starbucks people think it's weird when somebody orders decaf. haha.

    Have a great weekend, girl!
