I’m sorry, what? How have I never heard of this collaboration. I LOVE Papyrus cards. The combo of T-Swift’s feminine, advernturous style and the beautiful craftsmanship of Papyrus stationers is a true match made in heaven. I bought these two just to keep for myself because I find them so inspiring. Gah! I want to be that girl on the Vespa!!!!!!

The Taylor Swift line for Papyrus is exclusive to Target until the end of October. After that they can be purchased at Papyrus stores.

It has been such a big month for The Style Wheel Big Deal. Honestly, so many of you have reached out to me and shared photos. I love seeing these! A couple of my favorite people texted me throughout the month with photos and with their permission I just wanted to show them to you…because they are so cute.

All the local Stella girls on my team came over for lunch on Wednesday, and it was one of the favorite parts of my week. I love these girls.

I made my favorite No-Fuss Chicken Spaghetti and current favorite Kale Salad.

this house full of crazy boys

Monday was a holiday from school so each of the boys had playdates. Caleb went to a friend’s house around lunch, so James and I went to pick up his BFF, Cooper. We went to Mesa’s for lunch and then they played and played and played and played and played.

Then Cooper’s family took them to Speed Zone/Putt Putt where they played and played and played and played some more.

Caleb came home and it was just the 2 of us because Brian was out of town, so we made brownies. And a huge mess. #thaifoodinthebackground

Sharla’s is an incredible bath apothecary and gift store on the square in downtown McKinney. Sharla also happens to be a dear friend, and I love celebrating her every halloween for the anniversary of the store. 12 years in business!!! The store is full to the brim of exquisite, interesting, unexpected gifts, jewelry, skincare and everything else in between. Here are a few of my favorites:
