To All My Home People,

My Mac quit working a few days before we left Texas. And just today our other computer decided to freeze up. Needless to say, I will unfortunately have to cancel WAYWW once again. My sincerest apologies. I'm in the middle of organizing and rearranging my house right now anyway so I'm not in any place to be looking cute. But hey, maybe once I'm done and at least one of my computers is up and running I'll post some pics of the place. And cross your fingers for me that I will be on top of my WAYWW game from here on out!

I'm having a garage sale this Friday from 7-12 ish at my house.

Lots of cute stuff...and my stash keeps growing. I'll have everything from clothes to decorations to furniture.

Email me at alovelylifestyle(at)gmail(dot)com for directions.

And get this!..Boyd will be making his cinnamon rolls and selling them...oh and here's the kicker...he'll be baking them in our wood fire oven. Can you say yuuuummmm???

And if you're interested, I'm selling this chair. It probably won't be going out at the sale so email me asap if you want it.

$200 (pillow sold seperately). Has two tiny stains that are hardly noticeable on the seat. Otherwise, in great condition.

See ya Friday!

We decided to head home early. We're on the road as I type with about 11 hours left. I'm sure you're all so jealous of me right now. Big Boy breathing down the back of my neck is awesome! Needless to say, this week's WAYWW is taking a back seat(with Neck Breather). So save those dapper duds for next week.

Wish me Big Boy luck. And if you wanna keep up with me, look me up on Face Book. I'm starting to get real cozy over there. It's just way too convenient from my Iphone.

I was uploading some pictures of miss Evelyn to facebook when suddenly an image of her daddy as a baby flashed into my head...

Yep. She is her father's daughter.

It's Wednesday again homies! 

Here's what we're wearing:

You're gonna think I'm a spokesperson for Gap today because my jeans, shirt and blazer are all from there. All sale items, mind you. Shoes are thrifted and necklace is F21. It was only $6.50!! Doesn't it look like a $100 necklace from Anthropologie?


You've already seen Evie's dress and shoes before...but not paired together. Dress is Old Navy. Shoes are Janie & Jack and rose bud clip is Clippy Chicks. (Found out Contagious in Mesa.)

Here's my Saturday Steal: A pair of wooden folding chairs for $5 from an estate sale. One of them is a rocker. (One of them meaning, mine! The hubs gets the other;)

To see more steals...well, you know what to do.

I'm so behind on posting the fun activities we've done this summer.

I finally uploaded a chunk of pictures and I couldn't help but post this one picture for now. I just love this photo. Something about it sums up my feelings about our stay here in Texas.

Three more weeks until we're home again. I'm so looking forward to being home and reunited with family.

Although, there will be a few things I will miss about this Summer.

I'm grateful for all that I have learned out here and for the friendships made... and the relationships that were strengthened.

Isn't it interesting...the way change is so vital to human growth?

And on a totally unrelated note, check this out. ☞click


Welcome again friends, to What Are You Wearing Wednesday. 

I haven't quite gotten on top of my game, so no picture of me today, but you don't come here to see me anyway. We all know you come here to see this pretty thing:

Romper: Gap
Cardi: Gap
Sandals: Janie & Jack
Flower Clip: Clippy Chicks (found at Contagious in Mesa)
Bracelet: Bead Diva (also found at Contagious in Mesa)
*please take note that the clothes and shoes were sale purchases. I never buy anything full price from the above stores.*

Gosh she just melts me. 

Ok, now it's your turn.
