Embroidered dress + 40 random things about us

A fabulous embroidered dress and a chic handbag are the perfect combination.  This hobo bag comes in 5 colors and has the prettiest gold accent detail.  

I know this post is dating us, but one thing we pride ourselves on is being completely honest with you all.  We only share products and clothing pieces we truly love.  So being honest with how old we are is a no-brainer.
Today is our 40th birthday!  Yikes, that was hard to type.  Do we feel 40? No.  

Isn't 40 the new 30?  Seriously.  Growing up, 40 seemed so crazy old.  

In honor of our Birthday, we thought it would be fun to share 40 random things about ourselves!


1- I am afraid of flying.  As a mom, I act brave.  But inside I'm not!
2 - I prefer writing with a pencil over a pen.
3 - I dislike lunch foods and tend to just eat a couple small snacks.
4 - I drink 3 cups of coffee every morning.  #dontjudge
5 - I hated coffee until our first was born and I was exhausted.
6 - I don't like swimming under water.
7 - I'm addicted to gum.
8 - My major in college was Dietetics.
9 - I was an elementary school teacher before having kids.  
10 - After staying home with the kids for 8 years, I now work part-time as a Preschool Assistant Director.
11 - As newlyweds we played paper-rock-scissors at a bar to see if we should start trying to get pregnant.  Pretty much the one and only time I won!  13 months after getting married, our first was born.
12 - I enjoy a glass or two of wine every night.  Specifically Pinot Noir.
13 - I'm extremely claustrophobic.

1 - I am a huge dog lover.  I have to say hi and pet any dog I see!!

  1. Loved reading about you both! We should totally be friends, I've got things in common with both of you! I prefer a pencil over a pen, drink coffee and wine (Pinot Noir during the Fall/Winter, Sauvignon Blanc when it's hot), I get motion sick easily as well. Even watching a movie can make me feel 🤢. I'm a dog lover too, will talk to more dogs than people if given the chance. Thank you so much for sharing and Happiest of Birthdays! Welcome to the 40's club!
