Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Picks

nordstrom sale

My love for Nordstrom and a good sale runs deep like any woman. So when the anniversary or half-yearly sale rolls around you better believe I'm jumping up and down and ordering a few items. I wish I could walk into a Nordstrom, but unfortunately I would have to drive 2+ hours. Shopping from the couch isn't that bad. I probably end up spending less ;)

I could picture all these items in my closest, but I'm sticking to three. Can you guess which ones? Although I haven't pulled the trigger the jacket, boots and watch will soon be mine!

What are you loving at Nordstrom?

Weekend Happenings: Tahoe Celebrity Golf

Well that was a crazy week. I literally wrapped up an 80 hour work week yesterday and am currently on day 8. Yeah poor me, but seriously it's one of my most fun work weeks during the year. So even though I was working all weekend I was having a blast at the Celebrity Golf tournament. My week/ weekend looked a little something like this.

Storm brewing over hole 17. This was right before the rain delay on Sunday.

Sunday night I was lucky enough to score tickets to the Zac Brown Band concert! Such a fun show.

Well, that sums up my life lately. Now I'm on to the next event.

Poppin Bottles Like it's my Job

One of the biggest events I work every year is the American Century Championship and today is day three. Each year Korbel hosts a Celebrity Spray-off on Thursday and the evening before media can give it a try. After yesterday I now have four years of poppin bottles under my belt. The goal of the event is to see how far you can pop the cork. The cork that goes the furthest wins.

And now for some awesome photos!

Robbie Gould kicked off the media event yesterday with about 80 ft.

Over the past four years I've managed to pop the cork anywhere from 65 to 75 feet. It's all luck!

Insta Lately

Dear Summer, Please never end! 

I've been enjoying everything summer has to offer in Tahoe. Beach, biking, hiking and dining outside. I just can't get enough. Here's a little snapshot of what life has looked like.

Craving: Cherry Goodness

{Disclaimer: This is a sponsored post brought to you by Northern California's Whole Foods Market}

I love summer for a handful of reasons, but the plethora of fruit is on the top of the list. Lately I've been obsessed with cherries. Shopping isn't complete without a bag in the cart. Although I love eating them just the way they are I searched pinterest for a few ideas. I can't wait to try a few of these out, especially the Cherry Chocolate Banana Bread!

Cherry Pie Cookie Cups & Cherry Oatmeal Crumble Bars

Fresh Cherry Margaritas, Cherry Lime Ice Pops, and Chocolate Cherry Banana Bread 

Lucky you Whole Foods Market is having a flash sale on cherries today only. Guess what, they're only $1.99 per lb! Enter here for a chance to win 5lbs of Cherries.

What would you make with your cherries?

Our 4th of July Weekend

First off, I love three day weekends and wish I had every Friday off. This past weekend was perfection -- beach, bbqs, and good friends and family.

Friday morning my brother and his childhood friend joined us. We packed up the cooler and headed to the beach via bikes. The '48 Super Cruiser even made the trek.

Ah, the beach. we spent half the day hanging out on the beach, floating in the water and laughing with friends.

 All the babes at the beach. Side Note: I think it's time for me to get a new hat.

After an awesome day at the beach we bbqed back at our place before heading to the firework show.

Saturday we hiked to Round Lake via Big Meadow. It's a fairly easy hike. The pup dog had a blast running through the open meadow.

Quick pic with the hubby and Roxy. She's not one to sit too long.

Once we arrived at Round Lake we enjoyed lunch and went for a swim. The water was perfect!

Sunday we relaxed at the house and ran a few errands. All in all I would say it was a successful weekend. Nick's folks fly in Thursday so the next few weeks are going to be full of adventures. How did you spend 4th of July weekend?
