I’m Hump Day, and today is my day after Hump Day!  I took off Friday to get a lot of things accomplished before I head to Vegas on Saturday.  Now before you say, “Didn’t you just go to Vegas in March?”  Yes, I did, but this time it’s for work.  I get there Saturday afternoon, but class doesn’t start until Sunday morning, so I should have one afternoon to relax by the pool…hopefully.  = )  I’ll be in classes for 8 hours each day as if I was at work on Sunday through Wednesday, but it will still be nice getting out of the office for a few days.  I’m looking forward to it.  I’m a credit analyst, so this is one of the big credit conventions I attend each year.  I will still be posting all next week, some fashion and some fitness posts, but I plan on also doing a post or two with pictures from Vegas next week.  And I’ll be back Friday with my recap of my last 5k.  Don’t forget to enter the giveaway for clothing here, for a camera here, for a handbag here and for Stella & Dot jewelry here!
Yall will notice I’m wearing these boyfriend shorts again.  The ones I was so hesitant to buy!  I can honestly say they’re my favorite shorts now, and I have always been about the short shorts, so that is strange for me to say.  Does this mean I’m getting older?  (my 30th bday is in about 6 weeks!)  I don’t mind, I’m embracing it and trying new things and new styles.  I also tried this style of headband for the first time.  I love the nautical blue striped print, and the cotton is so soft.  I will definitely be wearing this a lot when I go to the pool this summer.  If yall follow me on Instagram, you probably saw last week that my mother-in-law just bought a new house a street over from us…and it has a pool!  I am so, so excited!!!  And it gets good sun all day long, so I plan on being there by 5:10pm straight after work Monday through Friday and pretty much all weekend long after a 5K here and there.  = )  Can you tell I’m excited?  We never had a pool growing up, so this is my chance to make up for it.  What are you looking forward to most about summer?

Have y’all met Meredith from Is This Thing On? She blogs about a good variety of things – fitness, being a mommy and everyday life. I met Meredith through Instagram first, and then shortly after started following her blog. Stop by and say hello to her if you get a chance.

1.  Follow Meredith on GFC.
2. Leave me a comment letting me know what your biggest temptation is at Target.
Today I’m linking up with Alison, Lindsey and Shanna.Photography by Pea Pie Photography.

  1. I need to try Loft boyfriend jeans/shorts…I've heard good things! I cannot wait to read your post about fitness!! And I'm following Meredith on GFC, and Target's accessories and clothes are such a huge temptation!


  2. Oh duh, forgot my biggest Target temptation….a clearance sticker. Does't matter what area. Anything at Target with a clearance sticker could come home with me, lol. I mean, if it's on sale, why not right?

  3. I follow Meredith via GFC – Andrea Darst, Everything at Target is a temptation! I love the clothes, shoes, make-up, hair products, and on and on…I can't help myself from checking the clearance racks every time I go!

  4. Okay, I loooove that top! Such a pretty colour and beautiful fit! You're so cute! And even though it is for work, I'm still pretty jeal that you're going to vegas! Hopefully you get that glorious saturday to relax by the pool all. day. long. 🙂


  5. I just found you from Kitchen Meets Girl. Memphis is my home and I miss it so much! We moved away 10 years ago and I keep telling my husband that one day we will return! It is fun looking through your blog and seeing all the familiar sights!

  6. Love the outfit–especially the shirt! And I'm jealous you'll get to spend the summer next to a private pool. Lucky! 🙂

    When I'm at Target, I always end up looking at their activewear. I think Pete's figured this out, though, because we never go there! LOL!

  7. You look adorable! Come to AR & dress me!! I just can't put stuff like this together! Blahhhh. Biggest temptation at target is pretty much the whole dang store, however that clearance section in the home decor area is always the devil! I always find something adorable that I don't need, but HAVE to have! 🙂

  8. OK, Target is my happy place. Seriously, if I get time by myself, that's where I go. I get tempted most often by their home décor. They are always getting new stuff and I totally impulse buy!

    I follow Meredith now too!! 🙂

  9. I follow Meredith and my biggest temptation is um everything!! But probably mostly their clothes!! I hink they have the cutest stuff!

    And I love your pics!! I love that you're totally changing up your backgrounds for your pics.
    And I love your high bun with this outfit!
    And lastly, I want the entire outfit!
    Ok, that is all! 🙂

  10. You are killing it with all your new photos…is that photographer gonna start doing your pictures from now on? I mean, they have always been great, but lately they have been STELLAR!! Proud of you!! You look like a model in these photos and love the simplicity! xoxo

  11. Thanks for introducing Meredith! I can't walk out of Target without some sort of clothing or shoe purchase, it's terrible… so I try to stay away from that lovely company like it's the plague, lol!
