Today was so beautiful!!! 78 degrees! I was so excited to be able to finally wear shorts! I have heard a lot of people lately say they are afraid to wear white pants or shorts. That is not the case for me! I’ve never been afraid to wear white. Yes I spill stuff on it, yes it stains, but bleach is my best friend and that almost always does the trick.

Like I’ve said before I love sheer tops! I was a little weary of this one because it is crop-toppy, but I’m just gonna go for it this season. I’m gonna be brave and try new things that I normally wouldn’t. I’m glad I did because I ended up loving the way it fit me! I will definitely be looking for more sheer crop tops!

It’s going to be a busy rest of the week! I have my best friend Callie’s bridal shower this weekend. With work, Porter, and prepping for the shower my week is packed. I am so excited for her!  It’s going to be so beautiful! My other best friend Cieara and I are in charge of the food. She is an AMAZING cook! I am not. I’m just hoping I don’t screw anything up! I can’t wait to eat till I’m sick and then work it all off at Crossfit next week.

What are your plans this weekend?

Can you guys tell I love Nike workout gear?!? First of all Phil Knight (the co-founder of Nike) is a native of Oregon and a University of Oregon graduate (Go Ducks!), so Eugene is full of Nike everything! There are a ton of other companies that are great for workout clothes, but the quality of Nike clothes is always something that sucks me in!

I just recently started doing CrossFit and I am absolutely addicted!  I have pushed myself at the gym, done all the videos, followed YouTube workouts, but I have never pushed my body like I have with CrossFit. I feel like I have found something that finally makes perfect sense! I want to tell everyone I know all about it. Every time I leave class I feel accomplished.   I leave feeling like I just proved to myself I could do what I didn’t think my body was capable of. Every “W.O.D” (workout of the day, I hate saying W.O.D) is different so your body is always surprised.

I want to be healthy and strong.  Being naturally thin doesn’t mean I don’t work hard to be healthy and fit. Yes, it might be easier for me to maintain my weight, but I still make the choice everyday to work hard at staying healthy and in shape. I was super nervous at first and worried I wouldn’t belong, but the people at CrossFit 448 were very welcoming.  You get a week free at Crossfit 448 to see if you like it.  They answer all of your questions and walk you through all the workouts you do not know how to do.  Everyone is very friendly!

If you are thinking of trying and live near Junction City, Oregon please give them a try.  You will not be disappointed!  I hope everyone is having a great Holiday Weekend!  Let me know if you have any questions in the comments section!

I need more graphic tees in my life! There are so many that I have pinned on Pinterest and screenshot on my phone. I love them and they are so easy to dress up or down. I can workout in them or accessorize them to not look too casual. I love the movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off so much that if Porter was going to be a girl I begged John to let me name her Sloan! Haha. 80’s movies are my absolute favorite! When I was in high school I had so many pairs of Converse! Navy, black, black high tops, american flag print, red, I was obsessed! I have been wanting white ones for forever, I’m so glad I finally have a pair!

Today was a day full of grocery shopping and running errands. When I have to take Porter to run around all day, I try to not go to more that 3 stores because he gets sick of it real fast. I always have to pack different snacks, promise him a cake pop if he’s really good, and always get the cart that looks like a car to try and keep him happy!

What are some of your favorite graphic tees?

This just might be my new favorite outfit! I’ve always loved gingham. Growing up I had multiple sets of Ralph Lauren gingham sheets and they were wonderful! I love navy gingham with white pants, especially paired with cognac accessories.

I feel like I accomplished so much this weekend! Saturday I went to several yard sales and got some great stuff! That evening John took me on a date night to sushi! We tried a different place this time and it was so good. Then we went to frozen yogurt which has been my weakness lately! I want it all the time! Sunday we spent all day cleaning and painting. I painted a couple of lamps that I bought on Saturday and John worked on getting our bedroom painting done. We have been trying to get it finished for a couple of months now, we have just been so busy!

What did you guys do this weekend?!
