All About the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017

It’s almost that time of year which means its game time! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is finally here. I know everyone has already heard enough about the sale, but get ready for you Instagram feed to be blowing up with it for the next month.

The good thing is that you won’t be annoyed by it. Why you ask… Because this is the biggest sale of the year – the one we’ve all been waiting for since last year sale ended! Remember these items that are on sale are BRAND NEW and discounted for a limited time only.

The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2017 Catalog
gives you a preview of everything included in the sale.  


The Nordstrom Sale is mostly fall items. Which means you should go through your fall wardrobe and see what items you want to invest in this year. Such as a good pair of jeans, booties, leather jacket, etc. This sale would be the time to buy those items. I remember last year stocking up on plain long sleeve shirts because you can never go wrong with accessorizing a plain T.

We all know we don’t like the word “budget” but they are necessary when shopping this great sale! It’s easy to keep adding and adding items to your cart that you think you need only to realize you have a couple of thousand dollars’ worth of sale items in your cart. I know some people can spend that kind of money which is completely fine, but if you want to play it smart and not overbuy, SET A BUDGET just to be safe!

I know the word “credit card” scares people, but with this card its link straight to your bank account meaning it comes right away instead of paying the bill off monthly. You also get great rewards when you shop with the Nordstrom Card (link). PLUS having one will grant you Early Access on Thursday July 13th for the sale!

Don’t let this sale stress you out since you keep hearing about it from everyone. It’s a great time to see what new items you can add to your fall collection plus the discount prices!

I recommend purchasing all of your items online, picking them up at the store, or having them shipped to you. Nordstrom offers FREE SHIPPING on all orders, but if you need any of your items for an event you can pay for one day shipping for only $15! Not only is the shipping a good deal but Nordstrom also offers FREE RETURNS. Order everything online and send everything you don’t want back in the same box for FREE! This is a great way to beat the heavy crowds and crazy people. You will also have more luck when trying to find your size online rather than in the store.

The items sell out quickly especially the sizes that everyone typically wears. So yes I will be on the computer/phone at midnight adding things to my shopping cart. Don’t overthink it (remember what I said above about FREE RETURNS) go ahead and buy it before it’s gone! Nordstrom will restock a few items but nothing is ever promised.   


July 13th Early Access begins for all Nordstrom cardholders
July 17th The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale opens to the public
August 6th Last day of the sale and the prices go back up on the 7th

Ekk, father’s day is on Sunday! I’m finally having some wind down time to put together a gift guide for you guys! Sorry about that, BUT it’s never too late. Here are some favorite last-minute father’s day gifts that you can get on time (yay) through AMAZON PRIME!

 I went through some idea with Ryan last night to pick different gifts, and with a couple of co-workers to put together these gift ideas. 





These ideas are great for all types of dad’s. Happy shopping!

Memorial Day Weekend

Sergio Garcia practicing his putting. 

Had to take a picture of this! Go Texan's :) 

Let’s start off with saying that the fact that we all get to have this life enjoying the freedom in our lives is unreal. We should all be forever thankful for those that have paved the way as well as those that are currently paving and protecting our freedoms today!

Traditions are something special to people’s hearts and this past weekend calls for traditions all around. Memorial Day is a time when family and friends get together to remember those who have served our country. Our family has a few sweet traditions that I have loved since they’ve been started. One being spending Friday at the Colonial in Fort Worth with my dad! We’ve done this for years now and it’s something sweet we both enjoy doing (p.s. my mom isn’t into walking around sweating and watching golf - haha)!

This year one of my dad’s best friends since elementary school and his wife joined us. We had a blast! We followed around different golfers, people watched (always looking for cute outfits), and just enjoyed one another’s company. After a full day of walking around not sweating too much we went to my house to meet my mom for dinner.

Since my dad’s friend and his wife don’t get to come up to Fort Worth much we wanted to make sure they had a good meal. We took them to the Original which is a staple in Fort Worth. A little background it’s been around since 1926 and it’s a place where generations have enjoyed bringing their kids. It’s a place where we belong, where we eat because we love it, and we enjoy sharing this tradition that has been handed down to us.

They fell in love! We all left happy and full of the best Mexican food (in my opinion) that you can get in Fort Worth.

Hope you enjoyed your Memorial Day weekend and traditions!
