Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Preview

I am sure by now you have heard the buzz that the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is about to kickoff! 
Some of you might not have a clue what I am talking about or why the anniversary sale is so major!  So let's start with the basics before I give you a major sneak peek inside the sale before it even goes live!!  

Why is this Sale so Special
This is the stores BIGGEST sale of the year.  I am talking up to 70% OFF select items. What's even more amazing about this sale...the sale features new pieces from the upcoming FALL collections.  That's get to shop all the newest items at a SALE price right when they hit the store!  After the sale all items will return to their original price.  

When Can You Shop

Early Access For Nordstrom Card Holders: Thursday, July 12 – Thursday, July 19

Public Event: Friday, July 20 – Sunday, August 5

How To Shop
 I will be the first to say I love walking into Nordstrom and taking a deep breath and breathing all the greatness in...BUT for this sale...Yall it is NUTS in the store! So, I personally recommend shopping this sale one of two ways. 1) Online - no crowds and you can shop in your pjs, no makeup, and coffee in hand! 2) Shop online and do an in-store pickup! If you live close to a store shop online and pick up in store.  Then you miss the crowds and you still get to walk in and take that deep breath of "Nordy" air! 


Review the items BEFORE the sale starts.  Make your list...yall this is serious...get your game plan in place.  If you are wanting to snag new fall boots or booties GRAB THEM FIRST! They sell out SUPER fast! I also feel like cardigans sell out quickly too!

Now that we got our head in the game...

Let's turn our eyes to all the prettiness that is The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale!!

The Topshop Open Front Cardi
Anniversary Price $49 - After Sale $75
I am 99% sure this will sellout almost immediately!
To be completely honest I'm already stressing getting this into my cart before it's gone!
Braided Booties
Anniversary Price $79 - After Sale $119
I am loving the blush color- these come in 4 different colors

Thread & Supply Wubby Fleece Pullover

Yall know I love the mountains - in fact we are already planning our first trip!
This is a must for to pick from the 4 color options!

I literally JUST told Scott last week I am in desperate need of new luggage! 
This set will be available in 4 color options
Diptyque Set 
Anniversary Price $55 - After Sale $75
OK...if you have followed my blog or IG account for any length of time you will know that these are one of my ALL TIME fave candles! Diptyque candles you can seriously just sit in a room and smell the greatness.  I typically only burn mine for 20-30 minutes at a time because that's really all you need before you can smell the fragrance throughout. If you are a candle lover... YOU NEED THESE!
There will be two different sets available during the sale!

B.P. Mock-Neck Color Block Sweater
Anniversary Price $31 - After Sale $49
Color Blocking is alive and well!  I so hope to get my hands on this one! PS this also comes in a maroon version.

Anniversary Price $22 - After Sale $35
Now y'all know, I cannot even think about shopping unless I am also picking up something for my little mini me - Miss Fi.  How adorable are these overalls?

My June Wish List

How is June almost over?!
Before another day slips by -  I'm halting everything to finally share this months wish list!

We are just in the very beginning stages of FINALLY renovating our master bedroom.  You would think I would have moved it up on the priority list much sooner, but in all honesty, I feel the only people who really see it are myself, Scott, and Fiona...and we aren't THAT hard to impress! haha
All jokes aside- I have a vision for this room and the gorgeous Whitlock Pillow and Carlotta Armchair would be an absolutely perfect fit!

The A&F Shorts are on the list simply because I have heard so many fellow bloggers RAVE about these shorts! Y'all know I am NOT a fan of shorts.  So, when people start saying things like, they fit my mom-bod and my cheekies are covered...I'm giving them a go! Plus, they are on major sale!

I've linked everything up below!
What are your faves from the list this month?!
Make sure to comment below!

Ruffle Hem Pants $35
Whitlock and Co Pillow  $42
Kendra Scott Turquoise Pinch  Bracelet $55
Free People Scrunchie 3 for $12
A&F Shorts on Sale for $29
Carlotta Accent Chair $209
Camo Shoes $22

The Copley Plantation

This post is a few weeks overdue, but it's one I wanted to share with all of you as this home is very special to our family, especially my Sweet Mama.  On Mother's Day this year my brother, Scott, Fiona, and myself, went with Mama back to her roots and took a trip down memory lane at her Grandparents farmhouse.  This is probably Mama's most favorite place on earth.  She always says she feels like she can just breathe when she's "back home".

Caleb & Viola Copley
 Built in 1885

Isn't she beautiful? The double chimneys, the sun room with overhead balcony, and of course the white wood with black shutters (my idea of perfection). 

Look at these cuties on the front porch swing! 
Pretty special for Fiona to be swinging on her Great Great Grandparents front porch! 

The home is no longer owned by our family, however, we are so fortunate that the new owner is absolutely amazing and allows us to visit.  My mom and her have formed quite the friendship.  

Here are few inside pics I snapped. 

I would love to pack our bags and move on in! 
This home just speaks to me! 

All of the original barns have been restored however, recently they moved all the animals to new homes.

And for fun...

Fiona obviously felt right at home too...she was a mad woman running all over the place! 

Mama and her "babies"...

 And lastly...a look back

We are so thankful to the Latta family for loving this house the way our family did and still does.
Thank you for bringing her back to life!

The Gaither Kitchen: Vanilla and Cherry Muffins

I am seriously starting to surprise myself with all of the time I am spending in the kitchen these days!
We were fortunate enough to buy a home that had mature landscaping which includes a gorgeous cherry tree!  This year the tree has been incredible!  We've had neighbors pick cherries who then treated us with the most AMAZING cherry pie.  Our family members have stopped by to pick as well.  Here are a few picture from my precious Daddy (aka Pappy) and Fiona picking this past Monday.


Are they not the cutest?!

Ok- Now for these Yummy Muffins!


3/4 cup finely chopped cherries
2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 ounces unsalted butter, melted
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup buttermilk

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees

In a large mixing bowl, mix together your dry ingredients -  flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt 

In a separate mixing bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs and vanilla extract

Next, pour wet ingredients into the dry – then add your butter and cherries.
Using a spatula to stir the ingredients together until just combined – try not to over mix as this will help to keep your muffins fluffy

Evenly scoop the muffin batter into the prepared pans, filling 3/4  of the way up
I used baking cups, but if you do no have any just make sure to grease the pan before pouring the mix in. 

Bake for 20-22 minutes, or until cooked through
Set aside to cool for about 5 minutes  

Time to enjoy your Vanilla & Cherry Muffins
