Life Lately + Huge Nordstrom Giveaway!!!

This post may contain affiliate links. Purchasing through them help support this website.
Today feels like a new fresh start.  Last week was still a cookie laden haze and all day Friday at work it felt like Monday.  This weekend I got a lot of work done.  The majority of boxes are put away, my new class at the college starts today after I built the course over the weekend and lots of great new moves in Barre start this week.  Also my Wedding is next month.  I mean how crazy is that???  It felt so real as I was standing up on that platform getting my dress hemmed and the french bustle measured on Saturday.
Let’s catch up with life lately and then we can chat about a fabulous new giveaway. 
Said goodbye to my princess pad for the past 4 1/2 years.  Not going to lie it was a little emotional.  Lots of great memories there.
As I drove over the bridge I was greeted with this gorgeous sunset.  It was a good sign I believe.  
Trying to find a new spot for my full length.  Please ignore all the shoe boxes they are trying to find new homes.  Obsessed with this rose gold hardware RM.
Not sticking to my Wedding diet.
Dreaming of this view again.
Missing these little ones
Lusting over.  I mean I have no place to wear a pink fur bolero but around my house while vacuuming (now that I’m back to carpet floors the horror lol…..) could totally work right?  Gorgeous heels here.
Catching up on all kinds of work
Now let’s talk about this giveaway.  Damage could be done with $225 to Nordstrom!  Definitely in some great company!  Hint my two entries are follow me on Bloglovin and Instagram.

    Let’s talk about how that princess pad was AMAZING! Ugh, I have house envy.

  3. P!nky says:

    HOOOORAY for the move out, that’s so exciting. I know you’ll find an amazing mirror place, it will just take a bit. [love that top btw].

    That bolero is divine…wish we both had reasons to wear it :)! Happy first Monday of 2015!!!!

  4. Jenn says:

    So glad the move out has gone well and the settling in isn’t going badly (that full length will find a home!) Still so so bummed about missing you in NYC the other weekend (was that only a week ago??) We will have to rectify that at some point! :)
    Have a great Monday girl!!

  5. That sunset was definitely a sign of good things to come! That gold RM bag is AMAZING! And so is that fur bolero. Darn FL and it’s 80 degree winters.. wait…. just kidding. I kinda love that! Happy Monday love!

  7. Joey says:

    Oh girl so much going on for you right now! I hate moving and having to find a new “routine” for things (says the girl who has moved more times in the last 4.5 years than I care to count). And yes, that sunset was definitely a sign!! <3

  8. It’s always hard to say goodbye to somewhere you have been for awhile, but for an exciting reason why :) :)

    I hear you on the cookie haze, I was horrible this weekend knowing good and well that I was going to work really hard starting today!! I hope you have a fabulous week!

  9. Yayyyy for being officially moved in and the wedding being just a month away! It’ll be here before you know it :-D

    Good luck this week with the new courses and Barre moves!

  10. ohh that pink fur, so pretty. i don’t need it, but i want it. I’m kinda glad it’s monday so i can get on the right foot!! i’m ready to start being healthy again. and yes, that sunset is def a good sign!!

  11. Jillian says:

    your wedding is next month?!?! ahh so exciting!! i am loving that rebecca minkoff crossbody bag! xo jillian – cornflake dreams

  12. French bustle FTW! That’s the style I went with too :) Also, winter wedding twinsie, I got a rabbit fur to wear… For the 20 mins of outdoor photos we had. I mean, you only get married once, so if you think you need that fur then I say go for it! I haven’t worn mine since. But when I get around to preserving my dress, that little furry beauty will go with it! Memories and pics, right?! Right.

  13. Tracy says:

    Change is always hard, but you have so many great things coming up! The sunset was definitely a sign of good things to come :)

  14. Ah your big day is so close!! So excited for you… dress fittings are so surreal! Sounds like you’re going to be SO busy, I don’t know how you do it all!!

  18. Maybe I’ll move back to Tampa and rent out your princess pad!

  19. Can’t believe it’s NEXT month for you!! So excited!

  20. Sounds like you had a busy and productive weekend! I had all these plans to get everything in order this weekend, but failed miserably as I was in denial about the holidays being over. lol. Yay for your wedding being one month away!! It’s so close! Great giveaway girl!

  22. Tori says:

    Omgsh I cannot wait for your wedding–it is going to be spectacular!!! So glad you are getting settled and moved in–we moved on the 27th into a new house and I forgot how long it takes to get everything in its place (we are no where close to being done ha!)


  23. Stacy G says:

    Happy New Year!!! Your sister’s kids are sooo cute! I am still lusting over those lululemon sparkle leggings and my size is sold out! :( Even on ebay all they have posted are 8s and I need a 6. lol Can’t wait to see your wedding pics! This is going to be your year! XO

  24. I’m sure it was tough to leave your own house! Change is always hard for me, but your wedding is coming up!!!

  25. I can’t believe your wedding is so soon! I was just swooning over your engagement photos yesterday!

  26. To a new chapter! It will be an exciting one to start, and no better time then the start of a new year! That pink bolero is gorgeous!

  27. :) Happy Monday!

    OH, carpet floors – THE HORROR!!!!! Our downstairs has the only carpeted room in the house, I LOATHE vacuuming it. I usually make the hubby do it! HA!

    And fur bolero – – – well, you could – – – – IDK – – -wear it, well – – – – yeah, I see your point, but ITS SO NICE!

  28. it’s always sad to say goodbye to your place but now you have a brand new chapter in your life to write!! can’t believe your wedding is just around the corner!!

  29. When we moved from our apartment to our house this summer, I was wayyy more emotional than I anticpated! I lived in that pad for a year before Jason moved in, and then we got married, he started law school, we adopted pups…just so many memories in that place. But now we are creating new ones in our house so that’s nice too!

  30. Brianne says:

    Moving out of a place, especially when it was your own & you lived there so long, is always a little hard/weird. When I moved into a new place this summer I remember just sitting in the floor of my old living room after everything was packed up & looking around.

  31. Emily says:

    Love your outfit and congrats on the move!! Hopefully you’ll be all settled soon!

  32. Congratulations on moving into your new home, and so exciting about your big day only being a month away!!! :-) I’m glad that you had a nice weekend. Your nieces are adorable and that sunset is stunning. Shall I send you a sunset picture complete with the snow here? Haha. Hope that you’re having a good day so far, and Happy New Year to you!!!

  33. Tami says:

    Double commenting because I never checked the ‘notify via email’ for follow up comments button. Damn I struggle with blog commenting lately!

  34. I seriously wish I could take your barre classes! It would be so fun and I miss barre so much.
    Next month, that is so crazy! Time has just flown by, but that’s what usually happens when you’re the bride!

  35. Congrats on finalizing your move and on the approaching wedding -you have so many big changes in 2015 :) Love those shoes!

  36. Now that’s my kind of giveaway ;) Glad you are settling and getting all organized! What a fun year this will be for you, I can’t believe you’re 1 MONTH AWAY! EEKK!!

  37. Shauna C says:

    I love the sunset pic, so gorgeous!! Great giveaway, too! :)


  38. Love the sunset – we saw a rainbow when driving from Chicago to Michigan during our move and it seriously made me feel like everything was going to be okay! A bit dramatic but I needed it with all the tears that were happening, ha! And $225 to Nordstrom? Yes please!! Happy Monday!

  39. Congrats on the move! That makes starting 2015 even more fresh and exciting! Can we discuss how necessary a pink faux fur bolero is? I’m not sure why it is, but it definitely is! That is an awesome giveaway!!!! Happy Monday lovely!
