Nordstrom Anniversary Sale PREP 101


      Well hello, friends!  The time has come. Today, lets chat about my favorite sale that has ever existed. The Nordstrom Anniversary sale. I have shopped this sale for a few years now. Although this will be my 1st year shopping it as a blogger. AKA- Staying up all night, scrolling through hundreds of pages of amazing items, narrowing down and picking out the best deals and sharing all of the goodies with you ladies. After all, that is my job. I am so excited and can't wait to start shopping!
     Some of you may have never shopped this sale, or have never even heard of it and are wondering what the heck is all of the hype about? Well, let's jump right into the basics.
WHAT IS THE NORDSTROM SALE?!
  • Every year Nordstrom has a HUGEEE sale. (Many people know this as the NSALE). 
  • This sale consists of big BRAND NEW items/arrivals.
  • The sale involves amazing pieces for the upcoming Fall season (sweaters, jackets, booties), athleisure, beauty, kids, and mens items as well at an up to 70% discounted price.

I highly recommend getting a Nordstrom Card. The best items tend to sell out during early access.
You can apply here.

WHAT AM I SHOPPING FOR?!
     First things first, make a list! What do you need?! I know right where I am looking at- FALL ITEMS! I am loading up. Fall is my personal favorite. I am going to be searching high and low for you guys (and myself, hehe) for the cutest sweaters, cardigans, hats, booties, and boots! I am also going to keep my eye out for some athleisure gear, and items for my husband and two babies!

     I am so excited to do this Sale with you guys, it is going to be amazing. I just know it. I have gone through the 80 paged Catalog and I am impressed. Ready to get my hands on these goodies! I will be shopping the sale July 12th at midnight online as well as in store. I will keep you guys updated on my blog and on Instagram as well! Always check back here for updates!

Pop Of Floral

     Hello, Hump Day! Let's get straight to this outfit. I am so excited to share this pop of color ROMPER with you ladies. How FUN is it!?!? I think it is just darling. I am not a huge fan of rompers personally only because my legs never fill them out completely and they look super baggy on me (If I am being completely honest). Although, this romper fit me very well. Which was super exciting because I think rompers are so dang cute! I love that it is black with a pop of floral/color. Not something I see everyday for the Summer. You can easily dress it up for a summer night out on the town or dress is down with some sandals for a summer brunch with the family. The choice is yours!
  Thanks for stopping by! I hope you all have a great rest of your week.

Love, Your Babygirl.

     My father, my first love.  Where do I begin? My dad is such a great person and he has taught me so many valuable life lessons that no one else would have ever been able to. A father is so important in a daughter's life. He is the one that leads his family and sets the example for the man you chose to spend the rest of your life with one day, and so much more. A father has so many responsibilities, and my dad succeed at them and still to this day does.
     I am blessed with two amazing angels of my own now and fortunately I get to see my babies grow with their Pops, and there's nothing that warms my heart more. My dad provides my two children with so much love, just as he did and continues to do for me.
     I have come a long way from where I began, along the way I have grown up and changed. Everyone does. That's life! Right? Yet, I will never forget who I am and where I came from. Yes,  I am a total city girl now. But, that is NOT where I grew up! I grew up going hunting with my daddy every weekend, skinning deer, riding four wheelers, jet ski rides, washing cars outside on the driveway, and just having the time of my life being a total tomboy. All of these memories have shaped me into the woman I am today and I will cherish these memories for my entire life.
     My dad has ingrained so many helpful, and impacting life lessons that I respect him so much for. I will pass them down to my own children.
   
1. Live on your means, not your extremes.
     If I had a penny for every single time my dad has said this, I promise you guys- I would be a freaking billionaire! LOL! Growing up, I was blessed with a very comfortable lifestyle. Although, my dad is no dummy and still to this day counts every penny he has. He has taught me to live within my means. If you simply can't afford something with cash up front- DO NOT GET IT.  He will bring you right down to Earth real quick, and sometimes- I truly do need that.

2. Do not expect anything from anyone. Be a hard worker.
     My dad is such a hard worker. One of the hardest working men I have ever known. Growing up, I never knew of another person who worked as hard as him. Still to this day, I don't. Other than my husband, funny how that works-right? Even on the weekends, my dad was always productive. He was never given hand outs in life, from when he was just thirteen years old-he was out working on his own, saving all of his money for anything he wanted. From baseball bats, to cars...he did it all himself. From a young age, he grew up with that work mentality. With everything I do, I do my very best at it. I am a hard worker and I couldn't thank him enough for ingraining that in me.

3. Honesty is the best policy.
You will not meet a more honest person than my dad. He will tell you how it is, straight up to your face, good or bad. This is what sets my father apart from the other millions of people in this world. Now a days, it is tough to come by a honest and loyal person. My father has simply taught me by his actions. I have never once heard my dad tell a fib. That set a huge example in my life, and has made me the person I am today. I believe being honest is the best trait any person can have.

     Thank you, Dad. Thank you for loving me unconditionally from the beginning to now. Thanks for being right by side through all of my ups and downs. I love you more than you will ever know and you deserve the world. Exactly what you have given me. Happy Father's Day.

Love,
Your Baby Girl
Rebecca
