Wow, sorry it's been a few days since I've blogged. I am still so new to this whole thing and I would have NEVER realized how much time it takes to do this! I am LOVING the whole blogging thing and need to work on a more daily post for you guys :)

Well since it's "favorite fashion find friday" I wanted to do something a little different today. I love watching like the Today Show when they have the "Deals and Steals" fashions. So I thought I would do my own deals and steals on flats today. I love shoes, and you can never go wrong with a great pair of flats. Especially with having 2 kids and running around, flats are super comfy, but still oh so stylish! So here we go - I hope you guys enjoy...

So I LOVE these shiny gold flats

The 1st pair are the AE Croc Flat and retail at $29.50

The 2nd pair are the Old Navy Faux Patent Ballet Flat for only $8.99 right now!

This 1st pair is from J.Crew and they are adorable! I love this bright plum color. They are the Kelcey Suede Ballet Flats and retail for $98.00

Then we have a pair similar..definitely not as cute, but you could totally pull them off and they are from Target. They are the Mossimo Odell Ballet Flat for only $12.99!

I love sequins and I really LOVE these flats. The 1st pair are from and are the Wanted Shoes Women's Dizzy Flat for $49.95.

The 2nd pair are the Jenny Sequin Ballet Flat from for $18.80!!!

So you see, if you just shop "around" you can find shoes that are very similar to the "expensive" ones for a lot less! Plus then you can get 2 pairs instead of that's my kind of thinking! More for your money!

It is so nice out today. It's a lot cooler and not as humid. The sun is shining and I turned the A/C off and opened the windows. We don't have big plans this weekend, so it will be nice to just hang out. They are having hydroplane boat races this weekend at our lake. We might take the boys to check that out. I think the boats go as fast as 100 mph, so they would probably think that was pretty cool this year.

Yesterday we had our house appraised. We have had it for sale for several years with no luck and we finally have a contract on it. We are super excited and hoping that we sell it soon. It is sounding good so far, it's just a waiting game from here on out. Please keep your fingers crossed for us :) If we do sell it, we will be moving in with my parents and then hope to build on some land that Craig's parents are giving us. So I will keep you all posted on that!

Happy weekend everyone!
