Life With the Lees: Weekend Recap 8.21.17

Good morning! We're officially down to the LAST week of summer! This time next week, I'll have a kindergartner and a third grader! The kids went down south last week to stay with their grandma while Robert and I spent the week in our professional developments. Texts from an 8 year old are quite interesting...


Robert went to hang out at the ranch with the kids for the weekend, so after work on Friday, I hit up Old Navy. I had to return the dresses that I ordered last week since they were potato sacks, and I found a great swing dress in store, but it wasn't on sale, so I passed. I did however take a snap of my casual Friday look. I love my new earrings from Target, and my Mossimo sneakers are still so comfy! 


I also hit up Target to do some more returns, and these may have ended up in my cart.


I got some good girl time in with friends at a new nail salon and stopped by Chuy's for lunch. After stuffing myself at lunch, I hit the couch for some school work and tackled my DVR. After sharing my guilty pleasures last week, I tracked down a new Housewives series thanks to a reader! I'm all caught up on the Auckland ladies now! 


I did one last round of returns at Marshalls (remember those sneakers I thought were a steal for Ari and then realized she doesn't know how to tie her shoes!?), and I loved perusing the pumpkins. Although I love Christmas, Halloween is probably my favorite holiday. I've been on the hunt for a black cat statue for 3 years and have yet to find one! 


Robert and the kids came home yesterday, and I'm sad that I didn't get enough time with them before it was off to work and camp this morning! I hope that you had a great weekend, and I'll see you back here tomorrow for a new workout challenge. See you soon!

  4. I love that outfit. I am so glad you had such a great weekend. It sounds like a great one to me! Alone time can be a wonderful thing! I ordered a shift dress from Old Navy for the first day of school and I am a little worried it is going to be a potato sack...ahhhh! Fingers crossed. I love their swing dresses but like you, will only buy if they are on sale. I loved your whole outfit that day! Happy Monday!

    1. Yep, I'm such a cheapskate- like $30 for a dress that I know will go on sale for $15 one day!?! No thank you!

  5. Great that you got some girl time and ME time. Yesterday I was at a bridal shower for my friends daughter and her mom gave her the cutest white pumpkin that has Mr. & Mrs. 2017 on it. Adorable. It was so perfect. Hope your week goes smoothly. Happy Eclipse Day!

  10. I seriously don't know what I would do if my kids weren't home for a week. I don't know if I'd try to tackle all the projects or just live in bliss on the couch.
