Lavender Love

I wore this dress last night on a little date with Chad.
I love that we can decide last minute to take a little stroll from our house down to the square. Since we are there during the day, we know what the hustle and bustle is like at that time. But, it’s nice to change it up and see it at night, too. There is definitely a different vibe and it’s just so magical down there. We strolled hand and hand trying to decide what we wanted to eat for dinner. Talking and dreaming and scheming. Just a few of my favorite things to do with my gingersnap.  And this dress was just perfect for a summery Texas evening.
The color, the flutter sleeve, the fit. Everything about it.

I’ve collaborated with one of my favorites, Maude Boutique, for a little giveaway!
So, hop on over to my Instagram to win this dress!

Wednesdays seem to always come out of nowhere and totally take me by surprise. In a good way and a bad way, I suppose.  I’m always thinking of all the things I still have left to do in the week, but also thinking of the fact that it’s almost the weekend.

On Sunday of last week, Chad and I decided to do a little kitchen renovation. It’s hard to believe we’ve already been living in our new home for 10 months! We’ve done so much in that amount of time, and it feels as though we are almost finished.  When we started our renovations last October, everything happened so quickly!  We took down walls, we sanded, we ripped down wallpaper. The whole nine yards.  I think we were just so eager to get all that ugly wallpaper down and a fresh coat of white paint up, that we didn’t really think about what we truly “wanted” each room to look like. So over the past several months, we’ve been able to transform each room into something we both desire.  And on that note, for some reason, our kitchen had been bothering me for the past few months. Something just didn’t feel right.  (It could have been the fact that we hadn’t even really finished painting it, so all of the edges and corners were still a hideous yellow color!)  We mulled it over, and decided to do pine tongue and groove plank paneling (which is actually original to several of the houses here on the historical square).  We have been working from after 5pm until almost 10pm every night since Sunday, and I’m getting so excited!  I love the way it has turned out, and can’t wait to share it with y’all!  I am so, so ready to be done with all of these house projects!

We did, however, get the chance to enjoy a little weekend break and go on a double date with some friends.  Who, by the way,  just closed on a house and are moving to historical Mckinney.  They will be just a hop, skip and jump away.  We couldn’t be more excited.  You know when you meet those friends you just wouldn’t mind sharing life with?  Yep, they fit the mold.  We are seriously beyond thrilled.  I’ve been doing little happy dances all week.

For casual date nights, especially on these hot summer days, I have loved pulling out these shorts. They are seriously some of the most comfortable shorts I have ever purchased. Also, if you don’t have one yet? You must go purchase a piko shirt from Riffraff. They have a million different styles, and they are quite literally the coziest tee you will own.  They are stretchy, soft and could easily moonlight as pajamas.  Also!  Don’t forget, if you use the code “signeroo” at checkout, you get 10% off your order!

Cotton Candy Sunrise

When I received this gorgeous dress in the mail from Shabby Apple, so many different photo opportunities came to mind. I loved the simple beauty of it. The fit, the length, the details. Chad and I had been talking about waking up early to enjoy a Texas sunrise one morning, so I thought, why not take a few photos while we are at it?

Sometimes, on the weekends, Chad and I will hop in the car and cruise around with the windows down.  Sipping a cold drink, summer just blowing through our hair. And all of a sudden, i’ll get the urge to drive down this long, winding country road just around the corner from our house. I’ll call out “wait, wait! turn!” and our car slowly makes it’s way down the road that turns old rundown buildings into corn fields.

There is something about a country road that just soothes my soul.  I love the beauty of the wide open spaces.  I love watching the tall grass blow in the wind like waves in the ocean. Reaching out across the horizon, as if begging the sun to bend down and kiss the tops of each grain of wheat.  I close my eyes and breathe it in.  Fresh air.  There is nothing in this world that beats the smell of wildflowers and freshly cut grass.  A historic prairie home sits at the top of the hill. Overlooking miles of corn fields and crops.  We dream about living there some day. A farm of our own with chickens, a few toddlers running around barefoot and causing trouble. Maybe even a horse. It’s a completely different world three minutes down that road.
Leaving reality and diving headfirst into the untouched beauty of nature just gives my heart the jolt it needs.  There is something so peaceful about it. It makes me feel whole.

So that morning, we drove down that road, past the oceans of grass, past the prairie house as it was waking up to greet the day, and we found the perfect spot.  A field of wheat that had recently been harvested.  There was something so raw and natural about it as the sun came up over the trees.  The light was a soft pink and everything felt a little bit like cotton candy. A cotton candy sunrise.  A magical, quiet moment in a loud and busy world.

Endless Summer

I can’t help but be sad that summer is winding down around here.  Granted, Texas summers last a lot longer than most. While others start experiencing the crisp fall temperatures, we are still sweating in our bikinis on the weekends. Not that I’m complaining. Time seems to be flying by this year.  People always say as you get older, time goes faster. They weren’t lying!

That being said, since summer is still here, I will still be wearing rompers. I just absolutely love this one from Riffraff. It’s one of those outfits you can throw on and know that it will end up looking cute.  It’s perfect for summery weekends. Morning trip to the farmers market, strolling around our historic little square…you get the picture.
