Looking Forward - Caribbean Cruise

So for the past year and a half we have been planning (and saving) for a cruise. We've NEVER been! Y'all I'm so excited! But with the move last year, sending my boy off to college, well we had to do some rearranging. So it's set for next Spring! Hurray!

It's going to be a little hard shopping for swimsuits and summer wear during these cold months but I did find this really awesome site for boardshorts!
I was contacted to see if I wanted to review their product, and being that we are going on a cruise next Spring, I said yes.

My 14 y.o. son will be wearing these on the cruise. 
He has worn them around the house just as shorts. He loves them! They are so comfy and can be worn as regular shorts and used to get in the water. 
Here's the pair he received:

Just Bones Boardwear shorts have a unique adjustable waistband that creates the perfect fit for your child, whether on land or in the water. The shorts feature an adjustable waist that discretely hides underneath a Velcro® flap at the waistband in the back.
Y'all that sealed the deal! My kid loves that they are adjustable. They are super soft and fast drying so you can hit the waves and then wear them around town. 
You can find them here:

They are for both boys and girls.

You can check out all the styles and colors at 

And you can see the video of how easy it is to adjust them here:

We will definitely be ordering some for my older son to wear on our cruise!

I highly recommend these board shorts. 

Until next time!

Anniversary and Looking Good

Hey, hey!! I haven't been blogging about my projects as often as I'd want to. 
Times sure are hectic with a full time job, home schooling my boy, my photography business and  We did take some time last weekend to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary! 
The husband and I went and spent one night at the Doubletree hotel in downtown Dallas. 
What a treat that was! 
No kids, no dog, and super comfy bed and pillows (I need to buy those for the house! Seriously)
I've been on Instagram a bit more, so you can catch updates there. I have been thinking about how as we get older we don't really pay attention to how we look. Well, at least that's where I was headed. I decided that looking good makes me feel good and you don't have to spend a ton of moolah to do that. I will be posting my daily outfits on IG once I figure out a good place that gives me good light to put a full length mirror. The fashions I wear are, of course, for women over 40.

Really digging those metallic arrows right now.
I will also be sharing some  beauty tips ;)
Right now I'm loving this super easy to carry compact from
I currently use this one:

And I also have the brush:

These are all items I have bought and paid for myself, so totally unbiased. 
I love that I can carry the foundation compact and brush in my purse for a touch up during the day. Except, even with my very oily complexion, I find I rarely have to touch it up! I was so pleasantly surprised.

Anywho, here are some pics of my anniversary weekend

That's it for now. I will definitely be back with a vengeance (well maybe not exactly a vengeance per say) tomorrow!
