Back again. This time it's warm chocolate chip cookies.

My kids like to be outside. I like to be inside. Do you think we can compromise by watching Naked and Afraid? Plus they will finally understand that they won't die if I don't let them have a snack before dinner.
It's totally ok to take a "sick" day because you got a cosmetic face treatment, right? Asking for a friend. @cosmeticare_ #cosmeticareambassador AD #microneedling
My mind's telling me no. But my body's telling me yes. I'm pretty sure R. Kelly wasn't talking about getting a cold, though. I'm so glad it waited until today to show up and didn't ruin my weekend! 🤧
When you are glad you wore a big flowy dress because dinner was THAT good...
#AD Getting to spend quality time with my bestie last weekend was soul restoring. While I often try to find ways to sneak in "me time" during a busy week, sometimes the only way to truly make a difference to my stress level is by getting out of town! A bunch of us gathered on a lake in Texas to celebrate a milestone birthday for my bff. Without all the stresses of daily mom life, we were able to chill, chat and laugh together. The focus was on enjoying each other's company and living an easy life for a minute. For me, #cocktailtime is an opportunity to connect with friends and family, over drinks. We decided to skip the work of making cocktails and used these delicious, ready to pour craft cocktails from @austincocktails instead. Drinking isn't an escape but a chance to re-focus on the people you are with. Even more now, putting your whole heart in to your relationships is so important. Austin Cocktails makes it easy to say cheers to the people you love.

There's a lot of ugliness happening right now. And sometimes you've just got to go to turn to the things that make you happy and take a break. Fashion, beauty and friendship have always been a passion so I headed to the @shopsmv with my pal @besosalina to shop, enjoy time with a great pal and learn about fall trends. I'm taking over the mall's Instagram stories today. If you are looking for an escape, head over and follow along on our shopping date. Plus the mall has tons of great events for Breast Cancer Awareness month! AD (brought along another friend @bleudogfotography to capture our day!)
Love is when your bff attaches your inner tube to her paddle board and pulls you around the lake while you drink a margarita. On her birthday weekend. I try and do nice things for her too. I swear.
Yesterday I learned that I'm doing a terrible job teaching my kids about good music. They didn't know Kris Kross's 'Jump', or House of Pain's 'Jump Around.' But I did win mom points for taking them to "THE BEST BOUNCE PLACE EVER!" (Their words).
.
They had an amazing time checking out @circustrixoc ! It's run by a mom who totally gets it. She focuses on safety, cleanliness and, of course, fun. And there's a great area upstairs for moms to hang out in and see the whole space. You and your kids are going to love it too! AD
When fall rolls around, I generally just want to wear sweatpants and a robe. But these @cabiclothing pieces are a little more presentable. Swipe to see the three looks I put together with items from their Penny Lane Lovely collection. And read my post to see why I was drawn to these pieces and find out why I had to wander around Laguna in my bra...ok, well I had a shirt on too, but it was, like, REAL sheer... #cabiclothing AD (images by @bleudogfotography hair by @carlieevanshair ) http://bit.ly/cabiforfall
[AD] Do you know what's better than happy hour? Having a machine cook your dinner! Which means happy hour is even more enjoyable because you can sit back and relax! Do you know what a crock pot can't do? Make you a delicious cocktail. But @greenhopevodka can!
.
It's hand-bottled in CA in small batches and 1% of sales are given back to the Organic Farming Research Foundation. This yummy drink recipe is from their site and has cranberry juice, OJ, Green Hope Vodka and a squeeze of lime. AND IT'S SO GOOD! Check out their website to find out where it's sold in your area!
AD If a cookbook doesn’t have a nacho recipe, it’s of no use to me. Good thing @trimhealthymama has one in their new book #TrimHealthyTable! Theirs is a WAY healthier version, which, as a nacho lover, my diet really needs. I made their Chicken Fajita Soup recipe this week for dinner. The prep time was literally 2 minutes! The slow cooker did all the work and then we got a delicious dinner to share as a family. If you’re looking for easy whole foods recipes, plus tips on how to make eating well in to a lifestyle, this book is for you! Find the recipe and more details on the book in my blog post: http://bit.ly/trimfajitasoup
You know how some people are drawn to "bad boys"? Well I'm drawn to kick ass ladies who are experts at what they do, who are giving and supportive and never competitive. They say raising tides raise all ships (and probably causes a little sea sickness, but I digress). And it's my goal to always return that favor. (If you don't know @hostesstori you need to do yourself a favor and meet this gal. She's my Pinterest guru, makes killer cocktails and is the best conference roomie ever). #mom2summit
I have two goals that I try to live my life by. 1) be the best mom I can be. 2) only wear clothes that feel like pajamas. I'm KILLING IT on one of these. And I'm pretty good at the other. 📸@jesspirrophoto
When I became a mom something happened that I never expected. There are nights when I'm just too tired for wine. Tonight might be one of those nights. But I'm not a quitter. Maybe I should run around the block? 📸 by @jesspirrophoto
Do you ever have one of those nights where you dream of other food while eating your current dinner? My zoodles just didn't cut it tonight. And now I'm probably going to have to eat candy to make up for it. Especially because this meat plate is three hours away from me. But almost worth the drive...
The countdown is on to #BadMomsXmas and I'm going to celebrate by drinking White Russians like they did in the grocery store scene in @badmoms . If you haven't seen the new trailer, I shared it on my Facebook page. IT'S SO GOOD. Who wants to watch it with me in November when it's in theaters? I'll bring the cocktails. Or you can make them yourself. I have the recipe for this large batch White Russinan on the blog. Search 'Bad Moms White Russian.'
This jumpsuit is 1 part "please Hammer, don't hurt 'em" and 1 part pajama like comfort. And I 💯% love them. 📸 @jesspirrophoto
I'm starting to think that Annalease Keating is my own law professor given the amount of time I've spent with her this weekend. I've been knocked on my ass by a headache that won't quit. A 2 day headache that I'm blaming on the weather. I want to murder it. And get away with it. See what I did there. (I'm talking about one of my fave shows @howtogetawaywithmurder ).
