This & That

Happy Monday, friends, and welcome back to a new week! We had a great time in sleepy Todos Santos this weekend, and I can’t wait to share it with y’all!

Girlfriend time is good for the soul, don’t you think? I missed my family, but there’s just something about being with women that reminds me of who I am outside my roles of wife and mom.

While I play catch-up on life and laundry, here’s a hodgepodge of new finds and life lately with this month’s This & That…

Holidays with the Fam //

It wouldn’t be holiday season at the Sugarplum house without our annual trip to the Dallas Symphony! Does this photo look familiar? We’ve been taking this pic in this exact spot for the last 8 or 9 years… except now there’s no more little people! So grateful the kids still humor me with all our traditions!

Sugarplum Travels //

After many months of being house-bound (thanks to a certain broken ankle), travel feels that much sweeter! My friend Suzie sent her only child off to college in the fall, so we celebrated her on a little getaway to two of the dreamy Chablé properties… you can read all about it (plus lots of vacation inspo) HERE.

Mr. SP and I took our annual solo-getaway last month, except this time we got to meet up with friends vacationing in the same spot! I shared all the scoop on where we stayed, what I packed, and more HERE and HERE.

Some friends of Mr. SP got married in California in December, which meant I got to see some of my favorite people while we were there! I found a super-cool Airbnb right on the Malibu Coast, and my sister, her boyfriend, and Suzie came up for an afternoon.

And then Val and her fiancé came for brunch the next morning… I can’t believe we’ll be celebrating their marriage in Kenya in two weeks!!

Crazy for Cargo //

For all my Vuori fans… if you love the Performance Joggers, you MUST try the new Boyfriend Cargo!! They launched a few months ago, and have eclipsed all others as my most-worn Vuori style! They have a slightly looser (more forgiving) fit, with the cutest pockets. Now I just need them to come out with more colors!

Colleen Faves //

Colleen is no stranger around here… y’all know it’s been my go-to skincare for years (and years!). The new Illuminating Eye Serum has been getting all the praise (with good reason), but the Hair Towel and Daily Conditioner remain quiet faves for me.

The Daily Conditioner leaves my hair so smooth and hydrated, without weighing it down, and the Hair Towel cuts my drying time in half, while helping fight frizz!

3 Totes, 3 Ways //

These designer-inspired totes are one of my favorite Amazon finds, and I reach for them more than any other bag lately. (I even love them as a beach/pool tote!) I have it in three styles… each a little different based on the straps. I love adding these scarves for a little pop of chic, too.

Giddy For Greens //

I’m almost a year in with my daily AG1, and I honestly don’t know how I ever went without! I love starting my day with it, and knowing I’m getting a full dose of 75 vitamins and minerals, plus probiotics and prebiotics! It’s done wonders for my gut health, and I crave the overall feeling of wellness when I drink it. It’s also chock full of good stuff to aid in my recovery!
