I am not sure what is more fun, decorating for fall or wearing all the fall clothes. I guess it depends on who you are!
I was sitting in my local coffee shop a few weeks ago when this lady, who reminded me of myself, leaned over my shoulder and said, "who are you? I haven't seen you in here before." I told her my name and with in minutes we were sitting at a table discussing and planning!
The Pinto-Batesville, AR
Come to find out, Jacklyn Byers is amazing at interior decorating and design She is the boss behind the Instagram account @ohbygolly, and she used to work for the clothing company, Anthropologie, as their window display genius.
We brainstormed and came up with a fun way to show you how to decorate with fall patterns and textures and also how to wear them!
Meet Talia Ann
What were you thinking at 15 years old? I bet it wasn't what this girl was thinking. I met Talia Ann at a festival where she had her boutique set up as a mobile vendor. She had the most unique denim jacket hanging up on a rack and I had to stop.
At 15 years old, Talia decided she needed to take a stand against all the suffering in the world. She spent six months planning and fundraising. With consistent prayer and help from her father, Talia created a clothing company from the ground up.
There are countless active wear brands out there and each one is different. They vary in price, design, purpose, and function. Certain brands do well for all women, while others seem to fit only specific body types.
I have compiled four brands that I have tried and love! These brands get a lot of points when it comes to what women need in active wear!
The four brands that get my sweat are Zyia, Old Navy, North Face and Senita Athletics.
Zyia Coral Sprinter short and Trucker Mesh Hat
Zyia Active wear is among the top brands for sure. The quality of the line is amazing. Every item that I own feels like butter. The shorts pictured here are the Coral Sprinter Shorts. These beauties have a thick waste band and boy shorts underneath that make you feel secure. The Sprinter shorts are about 2.5 inches in the inseam and run a bit small. These feel great on any run or for any workout!
For two years Ryan and I talked about how neat it would be to own a camper/travel trailer. We would always refer to when "the girls are gone" or when "the girls are older". Every time we would see one we would say, "man, how fun would it be to have a camper". About 4 months ago, Ryan became really serious about looking at them. He did a ton of research and we watched an untold amount of YouTube videos on Campers/Rvs/ Travel trailer. We wanted to make sure that we were not just romanticizing this idea. We knew that these involved work. We finally found one and bought it, and I will say, this has been one of the best decisions we have made! We absolutely love it! We have tent camped for roughly 10 years, so we have paid our dues.
Meet Neopolitan the Glamper
Miss Neopolitan is six years old. She is roughly 35 feet long and can sleep about eight comfortably. She has three bunk beds that work perfectly for our three girls, she has an outdoor kitchen, two slide outs for the bunkhouse and the living room, and she has a very nice, long awning. We named her Neopolitan because of our daughters different hair colors. At the end of this blog, I will link some of the things we purchased to help organize this gem!
What is more fun that watching 16 of your grandkids run??? Today was my parents first annual Stan Pa and TamTam fun run. Held in Conway, MO where my prints live and where we all grow up, my sister organized all of it and did such a great job!!
Each child received an “invitation or registration letter” telling them how to enter and all the details they needed to know. The race fee was so expensive, a hug😁!
Race entry fee of hugs!
All the kids had so much fun!! Before they picked up their race packet, they had a group warm up led by my sister Casi! It was so fun to watch them stretch!
In each of their race packets, was their own race bibs that were pinned on just like a real race. After they received their bib, they had their pre race picture taken.
Pre race stretching and warm up!

After they got their picture taken they headed toward the start line! Their race goal was half a mile! They did an out and back route. We also an official race vehicle lol! My brother has an old Jeep looking thing that he uses on the farm.

They all did so good running! You could tell they were trying so hard! You want to learn to love running? Watch kids run! They smile the whole time and you can see pure joy on their faces! I could feel the inner running coach coming out lol! My oldest, Lyla, started way to fast and could barely catch her breath. I had to help her calm down and help her finish. My June bug pushed it! She came in fourth and was so proud.
The coach coming out lol
June and Adeline
Every man runs with a chain-saw
You always need a race buddy
The “I got this” race face
She said, “ I am winning!”
Race course volunteers!
Strollers and babies, they all ran!
After the race they all got goodie bags with Gatorade, juice box, trail mix, and a few other things! They absolutely loved these!
Days like today are huge reminders of what a blessing family is! My family is so precious to me! When we get together you never know what is going to happen, but one things is for sure, we will have fun! Our family runs together, drinks coffee together, laughs, and prays together!
The two that started this whole mess! Stan Pa & TamTam!
They play hard!
What a blessing family is!!
Every runner is different in the way they run, how they eat, how they sleep, what they wear, and the accessories they can't live without. I am no exception! I have five essentials that go with me on almost every run.
Mothers day is fast approaching. If you are anything like me, then you always wait till the last minute to find something.
