Hat Wall Inspiration
My hat wall is probably my favorite wall in our house, right up there with the gallery wall in the living room. It is the easiest way to display my hats, that really takes up no space because I don't think anything spectacular would be on that wall otherwise. I am sure there is some super precise way of hanging and measuring them, but I just grab a handful of push pins and start hanging. And of course a couple pictures of my horses just adds to my fondness for the wall. 

Okay, I know that every style blogger and their mother is getting ready to flood your feed with Nordstrom Anniversary Sale posts, and I pinky promise I will do my best to refrain. But really, you have to get on board with this sale. I got the catalog of sale items in the mail this week and was like YASSS FALL YOU ARE GOING TO BE GOOD! If you aren't up on the logistics of it all, the sale is for brand new items that you will see in the fall, and you get to shop them for a limited time at some shockingly good prices. When the sale ends....the prices go back up. Simple. BUT this year if you sign up for a Nordstrom card they will send you a Nordstrom Note to use during the sale. You can sign up for the store card and get a $20 note, or the debit card (like a Target Red card, that's what I have) and get a $10 note. Best thing is you get to shop the sale early. Sign up!

I ordered a couple books a few weeks ago and have yet to crack them open. I love sneaking in some time to read, but while Chris was gone all I wanted to do when the kids went to bed was sit on the couch with the lights off and a blanket on (have I mentioned that I don't sleep much when Chris is gone? I am on high alert. Ha!). I watched the new season of Orange Is the New Black. Then I decided to really f*** with my sanity and watch The Keepers. I have no words. Then I moved onto The Handmaid's Tale, which my goodness! That show makes me borderline rage, but it is so addictive. I have two episodes left! Have you seen it? What other shows are you watching? I think I need some feel good screen time after all this! I am getting all too excited for Games of Thrones to return though.....can you say Jon Snow? 

We finally made it to the full hour of swimming last night, since Tuesday the kids got cut short because of thunder. Needless to say the boys were very excited. They were practicing dives towards the end, and all the kids lined up and went one right after the other. As they were going down the line to Pierce I could just see him starting to smile, and I sat there thinking....what is he going to do? Please don't make us call 911. Then they said "alright Pierce streamline arms let's go!". Next think you hear is CANNONBALL!!! All the dads got a pretty good laugh in there, and I was like, yep he's mine. I am pretty sure I saw Ace roll his eyes. But he ended his lesson with a pretty solid dive though. 

I think that is it for this Friday! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, be safe with the fireworks if you are celebrating early. Don't make me tell you the story of my brother and his friends accidentally shooting me in the boob with a bottle rocket! Safety first! 


  1. We haven't watched OITNB in a few seasons - but heard this last one was pretty good!! Loving your hat wall so much and hope you have a great weekend! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  4. Bottle rocket boob story. Yes please! I wish I had some good suggestions for binge watching... I'm always in the market for a good show myself...
