Happy Friday loves! Valentine’s Day is just 2 days away and I’m sure some of you are celebrating tomorrow night with your guy or gals. This is skirt is so much fun that I decided to pair it with this crop top I saw last minute while shopping in Charlotte Russe. This top adds a little edge to the skirt and even makes it a little sexy. I picked up these items from the Charlotte Russe at the San Marcos Premium Outlets not too long ago, so you should be able to get these in store!  Below I have linked some of Dottie Couture’s new arrivals. They are seriously SO cute. Tomorrow’s post will be a really yummy dinner for 2 with a couple of dessert options, so be sure to check back!

Happy Monday Sunshiners! ❤ I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! I had a couple of other posts lined up for last week, but unfortunately I have been pretty sick this past week. Today I finally started feeling better and wanted to share this adorable outfit with y’all! You can get this entire outfit in store or online at Charlotte Russe. This was the first time I have ever worn a bodysuit and they are amazing (if you need a blouse to be tucked in). I love that you don’t have to worry about it coming untucked or shifting as you move.  The blush skirt is perfect for Valentine’s Day  and is really fun to twirl in lol! If you sign up with your email on Charlotte Russe’s website you can get 20% off of your entire purchase! 🙂

All of the jewelry I’m wearing, except for my watch, is from Rocksbox, which is the most amazing thing for new jewelry EVER. You pay $19 a month for 3 pieces of designer jewelry. You can wear the pieces as long, or as short as you want, and return for a brand new box with 3 new pieces in it. You also have a wish list to let your stylist know exactly which pieces you want in your box. Also, you have the option to buy any piece in your box at a discounted price.

The pictures below are what I received in my first two boxes and I absolutely loved every piece. I kept the bracelet because I just couldn’t help it haha. I have a little V-Day treat for y’all! You can try out Rocksbox for 1 month completely FREE (no contract) with the code ‘sunshinedaydreamblogxoxo’. You will be given the option to sign up after your free month. This concept is seriously so amazing and will save you tons of money!

The last and final part of our Colorado road trip is here! Putting together these final pictures has really made me start to miss Colorado. Pagosa Springs was a real winter wonderland treat and we will definitely be back to experience the summer. On our last day we ate at Two Chicks and a Hippie and it was flat out amazing! I got the Honey Bear Latte, which was amazing, and both of us ordered the Hippie Breakfast. The prices were reasonable and the food was fantastic.

After breakfast, we went back to the house, grabbed the pups and our snowboogie, and headed out to find the perfect hill! We did not have to look far at all, as there ended up being this completely untouched hill right by the house we were staying at. The snow was pretty deep, but we trucked our way up (little Nala doesn’t like the deep snow, so we had to carry her)! This hill was seriously SO much fun and we had the absolute best time. After Layla continually chased after us down the hill, the path became pretty bumpy and rough. We then trained her to chase us down in her own lane. After a couple of runs, we were gaining some serious speed! Later, we went to High Country Lodge to snow tube; one of the coolest things I’ve done! It’s only $12 for two hours (including the tube) and it is seriously worth every penny! They even have a smaller hill to the side for the little ones. I highly recommend this place!

We are still in the process of putting together a video of the entire trip, so stay tuned! 🙂 Below is a list of my top 5 things to bring for a snowy road trip! Thanks for reading and happy Sunday ❤

⇓⇓⇓

1 . Hot Chillys – I had never even heard of these until the Christmas before last. They are number 1 on my list for a reason! If you are not used to the cold or are just a huge baby like me, you need these thermal long underwear!

2 . Ice Scraper – This is a must! Last year we did not have one and it was brutal!

3 . Water resistance boots – I linked a pair above that I wore and they were absolutely perfect. Make sure you get knee high ones incase the snow is deep.

4 . Layers – Make sure you bring enough along with the right sized tops and sweaters to layer underneath your big coats. Layers are key!

5 . Thermal Socks – You would be surprised how fast your feet can get cold through a thick rubber boot and 3 regular layers of socks (I definitely was). Freezing toes are no fun, especially the burning sensation that follows when you’ve found some warmth. These will most certainly save you a lot of pain! 🙂

Happy Friday everyone! I hope your week has been amazing. Part 2 is going to be a combination of the 2 days that we went snowboarding. On our second day in Pagosa Springs we went snowboarding at Wolf Creek Ski Area. It is most known for having the most snowfall in Colorado! Luckily for us, my brother and sister-in-law let us borrow their snowboards, which saved us a good bit of money. The first day it was snowing pretty good the entire time we were there and unfortunately we forgot one of our pairs of googles, so Tyler’s eyelashes were pretty frozen the entire time. Our car was crazy covered in snow when we got back to it! I had only snowboarded one other time than this exactly one year ago, so I was pretty nervous. Getting off the lift is always the scariest part for me, but by the second half of the second day I was doing it like a pro (which for me is if I don’t fall lol).

This was our first time at Wolf Creek and we absolutely loved it! All of the staff was so friendly and the slopes were a blast. I definitely should have hit the gym before we left because snowboarding is such a work out! Especially when you fall as much as I do, haha. The second day was seriously stunning! The sun was out, it wasn’t snowing, and we had both pairs of goggles. It was perfect! The sky on the way home was so beautiful. I really love how amazing the Colorado Sky looks at night. So different from at home in Texas! We are in the process of putting together a video from the trip that I can’t wait to share with y’all. 🙂

Part 3 will include a list of essentials and tips for the snow, so be sure to check back! Have a wonderful weekend! 🙂

Happy Tuesday! Christmas is just 3 days away and I’m seriously so excited and overwhelmed at the same time. We are leaving in a week for Pagosa Springs, Colorado (another reason why I’m so overwhelmed) and we could not be more excited for some actual Winter weather. This jacket is definitely getting packed for our trip. The quality is seriously amazing, as it is perfect for layering, and Dottie Couture still has some small sizes left! I’m loving anything that’s olive green this season, especially jackets, so linked below are a few of my favorite.

Christmas Decor Inspiration

There are so many different ways to show your holiday spirit this season. I love having our home looking like a winter wonderland. I want to share a few simple cost friendly decorating ideas to help you gear up for the big day! (9 days away)

JOY CANDLE STICKS

WHAT YOU NEED:

Burlap

3 Wood blocks

White paint

Black paint

Hot glue gun

Candle sticks (got mine from the dollar store)

Wooden candle stick toppers

↓↓↓

STEP 1: Paint all candle stick parts black (I did 2 coats). As that dries sand down the 3 wooden blocks and cut burlap to fit each block.

STEP 2: Paint each block on the burlap letters to spell out the word ‘JOY’ (I did 3 coats). Once dried, glue each block to the glass candle sticks.

STEP 3: Glue on the candle stick tops to the wooden blocks.


LET IT SNOW SIGN

WHAT YOU NEED:

Large wood plank (or plank you used for ‘give thanks’ project)

White paint

Blue paint

Silver paint pen

Stencil

↓↓↓

STEP 1: Sand board to liking and paint blue. I used the other side of my ‘Give Thanks’ board I made for Thanksgiving. I mixed the blue and white paint to get the exact color I wanted it. (2 coats)

STEP 2: Use stencils to paint ‘let is snow’. Once dried, use small brush to touch up and add 2nd coat.

STEP 3: Paint on snow flakes. I used a small brush and silver paint pen to do this.


XMAS CENTER PIECE

This is seriously SO easy and will cost you less than $5! I bought everything I used at the dollar store. All you need is a glass container of your choice, ornaments of your choice, and individual fake plants. The dollar store has plenty of options for all three of these things! Just fill the glass container with ornaments and then stick in 2-3 plants of your liking.


ALL FLAKES WELCOME SIGN

flakes

This is another really easy craft to add to your home this season! I used a piece of scrap wood and painted it green first, then added the white ‘humps’ at the bottom (3 coats). Once they dried I added the eyes, noses, and flakes. Lastly, I painted out ‘ALL FLAKES WELCOME’ with a fine brush. This was my first time not using stencils and I’m actually happy with the outcome. You can hang this on your front door, in your home, or place it on a shelf.


WINE GLASS CANDLE STICKS

wine

Who would have thought I could find another use for wine glasses besides filling them to the rim with wine lol. I got these from the Dollar Store and they are actually pretty great quality. The candles and ornaments are from the Dollar Store as well, so this project cost me less than $5! Just fill the glasses with ornaments, flip them upside down and put a candle on top. TA-DA! 🙂


Feel free to email me if you have any questions at all and thank you for reading! Happy Holidays 🙂
