If you know you know, right Vicki Gunvalson? But I’m not talking about that kind of WHOOP party today. I’m talking about the WHOOP bracelet, which monitors my sleep, measures my recover, and assists in building strain.
After watching my husband with his WHOOP band for seven months, I decided to get it a try. The first month, and bracelet (if you get the standard black strap) is free, and you can choose your membership from there.
Feel free to go on this WHOOP journey with me! Let’s see how much our overall health improves!
PS – if you are part of my current gym, we even have a group in WHOOP – so let me know if you join and I will add you to our group!
Today’s Feature Friday is a great shop here in town, Gruene with Envy. They have SO many items that are just different enough to stand out – in the best way. They also have a ton of closet staples as well.
I grew up playing tennis, and I wore tennis skirts A LOT. So wearing them is a go-to when I am running errands, or when I want to be one step up from just shorts and a t-shirt. It was a busy day, so I only had time for a quick bathroom selfie. I also was very lucky that two little boys weren’t a blur in the background.
I love this combo because I look “put together,” while being able to chase boys, or even hit up the gym (or tennis courts). I will definitely be wearing this all day.
This red dress is quickly rising to be one of my favorite dresses in my closet. This dress is very flattering, lined, and has details to make it unique. For those that aren’t a fan of tank-style dresses, I provided a more modest option as well.
In 2012, my husband gifted me with these custom-designed Chaco sandals. Little did he know, these sandals would become part of my everyday life.
Living in a town with a famous waterpark and two floatable rivers, owning a pair of good water shoes is a must. Having two boys that are all over the place and can get dirty at any second also requires reliable footwear – where you can play in the water one minute, but then chase them down the sidewalk the next. Chacos are fun, comfortable, and did I mention you get some great tan lines from them too?
Chacos do have solid colors and great prints. My chacos were very bright, but of course, faded over the years. For a sizing reference, I am a solid 7 1/2, and I have a 7 in these sandals – as they only come in whole sizes.
If you are looking to try on in person, I highly recommend REI. If you are local, The Pomegrante has some great options as well.
T-shirt dresses are so versatile and mom-friendly. I believe you can never have too many! This little number I found at Wal-Mart for $9.96! I really like the thickness of the material, along with the details – like the ribbed neckline and front pocket. I paired this dress with my comfortable, and affordable, snake-print sandals. I hope this dress finds it’s way to your closet too!
I love to shop local – and River Road Clothing Company makes it easy to do. My husband first began our River Road collection with the NBTX sweatshirt, which then continued with an NBTX hat, stickers, and the newest addition – the flag. We love supporting this great community, and this mighty town sure has some pride!
One of my newer items is the Texas thunderbird tank. It’s a great piece to dress up or down. The tank is great to wear when you want to look put together, but want to be comfortable too. Check all their items out at The Local in downtown New Braunfels, or online at https://www.riverroadclothing.com/.
Working from home, with the entire family home too, definitely calls for caffeine in the morning. I didn’t want to get drive-thru coffee for a fancy espresso drink so frequently, so I began researching for my perfect at-home brew.
The Nespresso Vertuo is my new go-to every morning. I have a blast trying new pods, frothing milk, and adding flavor to each drink. Honestly, I started preferring my nespresso than local coffee shops – which my wallet thanks me for that.
If you are interested in trying this machine yourself, I have the Vertuo Titan Bundle (which includes the machine and frother). The Nespresso machines frequently go on sale, so I recommend waiting if possible for the machine until there is a discount code – I will keep an eye out for you too! But if you are interested in the machine now, here are all the details on my morning coffee routine.
Also, if the 24oz mug is too big for you, I included the smaller Yeti mug (14oz) as well. I highly recommend a Yeti mug for those times you can’t sit and enjoy your coffee in one setting. My coffee stays warm for a solid three hours. I can’t say if it keeps warmer longer, as that is my max I have had coffee in my mug so far.
Do you ever struggle with the challenge of wanting to dress cute for a social event, but not wanting to be uncomfortable? I have this challenge all of the time! Especially with two little boys, being cute and comfortable are two words that don’t commonly connect for me. But Target really helped with a resolution – their tshirt dress.
Recently, Target had their tshirt dresses on sale, so I purchased a few colors to give them a try. These dresses did NOT disappoint. So comfortable, machine-washable, and they are a great length! Enjoy the links under my photo for the entire outfit.
