Cool Kids: I Heart My...

I am so excited to have Betsy from CoolKids sharing what she hearts!!!  If you have a kid or know a kid, you need to read her blog DAILY!  She keeps updated to what is New and Cool for the little ones and has some of the best giveaways, too bad I never win : (

Hi! I am Betsy from CoolKids! I was super excited that Trina asked me to come over to her blog and share what I heart! I live in the Chicago suburbs with my husband and two crazy kids! We are all excited that it is FINALLY feeling like summer!

I heart the classic LL Bean tote with zip top! During the summer we try to get out & enjoy the warm weather as much as possible. That means hitting the beach, spray parks and taking a few boat rides! The classic LL Bean tote has been a favorite of mine for YEARS!
I heart wine! I have spent the summers going up to Northern Michigan every year. One of our favorite things to do is to hit the wineries! I love bringing home a case or two of wine to enjoy throughout the year. I heart Trillium wine not just because it has a pretty label but it is also a perfect white wine for the summertime!

I heart Pottery Barn Kids Beach Towels! I have two young kids and I realized quickly that the best way to make sure they won't fight over which towel they get to use, is to get them their own super cool monogrammed towel!
I heart a good summer salad! We love to grill as much as we can in once the weather is decent in Chicago! I love a mozzerella, tomato and avacado salad! It is like a taste of summer in a bowl & it is super easy to make after a long day at work!
I heart Reef Sandals! Everyone has their favorite go to sandal brand and mine has been Reef for about 10 years! Every summer I have to get a new pair!
Thank you for having me! Stay Cool.-B

Thanks again B!  Summers is the Chi are the best, I miss them!  Great list!  I feel like heading to the pool or beach right now!  The towels are a great idea!

Make sure you check out Cool Kids and enter her giveaways!

Mama's Girls Night Out!

Saturday Night it went DOWN!  First let me start off by saying, I had the honor of hanging out with this Chanel cross body bag!  It's not mine but my BF Kia's : (.  I was just happy to be in her presence, the bag that is!

We were going to the R Kelly concert!  I am from Chicago and R and I go way back : ) Get your mind out the gutter, not that way back but with music.  I have been a big fan for years! 

We started off by checking into the Hyatt downtown Atlanta near the arena.

So we got ready.

Here is my beautiful friend Kia with her beautiful bag outside the hotel.

I didn't end up wearing a button down, but this crop Tee from Nordstoms.  I am sporting my Marc by Marc Jacobs cross body bag.  Perfect for a concert! 

Kia shoes were HOT!  She said she got them at Bakers???  Never would have thunk it!  Bakers shoes and a Chanel bag!  Love it! 

I ended up with a more laid back look then I planned with the Tee but my fit was based around the shoes!
You have to see these in person.  SICK!  They are so futuristic! They are Jeffrey Campbell's Kelsey.

Yeah, got them from my "Shoe Guy".  But these were not cheap like my usual ones and they keep selling out every where.

We headed to Thrive to get dinner before the show.

Now this is where things get crazy!  For starters we had tickets for the 1st row on the side, Perfect!  We sit down and Keisha Cole performs.  Cool.  Then this guy looking all concert official comes up and gives us VIP bands...  Really, umm ok.  He tells us to head to the front ....on the floor.

We get to the front of the stage but we have to stand up... ok, that's cool b/c once R Kelly hits the stage I will not be sitting anyway.  Plus we still have our good seats if I wanted to go back. 

So he comes out and since we are dead in the front of the stage he was singing to us and grabbing our hands all night!  Kia even got his towel!  LOL, came in handy cuz someone spilled a drink on her leg and shoe.  She used that to wipe it up... LOL!  The Chanel didn't get harmed!

Then it gets even crazier! So after R Kelly shuts it down for 2hrs! Yes, my feet still hurt! The guy that gave us the VIP bands comes over to us and some other young Ladies and said he (R) wants yall on STAGE!!!

WTH! I am a WIFE, MOTHER and in my thirties.... What do I look like going on stage?  See below...

Yeah, I took a picture while on stage of the 20,000 plus crowd!   Lucky for me the song was "Step in the Name of Love"  So I didn't have to drop it like its HOT! 

My other BFF Tahnee was in the luxury suite with her Husband and saw all this go down.  She is one of R Kelly's biggest fans... she was not happy she wasn't with us. I told her to kick her husband to the curb!

The rest the night got a bit blurry... we ate again, I fell, I kept wanting to go home to see Peyton...  I am still recovering!

Guess what!  I am going to be doing this or something like it all over again this weekend.  I am heading out of town for a girls weekend!  1st time away from Peyton : ( . Not sure how I am going to make it!  I think I am getting too old for this.  One night, 3 days to recover!  Wish me luck!

Peyton's Weekend Style and a Sick Chandelier

Hope everyone had a great weekend!  Well mama had a girls night out to a concert on Saturday and I am still recovering!

Sunday we were invited to a afternoon Summer Sassy Soiree at a friends house. 

Peyton rocked this yellow drop waist dress from Old Navy that was $8 with jean rhinestone wedges from Payless that were $15.  Don't you want her shoes! 

Little Lexi was there as well in her all white.

After my girls night out I tried to stay low key in this Aqua fedora that I got from Bloomingdale's two summers ago.  Sporting one of my $2 tanks I got at the Old Navy tank sale on Saturday.

I thought my interior bloggy girlfriends would appreciate a few beautiful items from their home. 

This Chandelier is SICK! 

Check out the toilet paper!  I wasn't sure if I should use it or not!  This home really needs to be in a magazine.

Post from Girls Night coming soon!  I am still hurtin!  How was your weekend?
