Saturday Coffee with Sara

Hi friends and happy Saturday ! How was everyone’s week?! Mine was pretty crazy with a jam-packed work schedule.  We had our Safe Haven Golf Tournament yesterday to raise support and awareness for our Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault programs, which includes our Safe Haven concealed shelter for women and children.  Though a lot goes into logistically planning for a fundraising event and something always happens in the 11th hour that throws you off your plan, it is SO worth it to see a great group of community members come out and show their heart and love for Heartland Family Service and the life-saving programs and services we offer each year! <—- PEAK 

PIT —-> We received some very sad news on Tuesday that our Board of Directors Chairmen suffered a fatal heart attack and suddenly passed away.  Tom was such a passionate, driven, friendly, funny, and humble community leader and we were truly blessed to have him serve on our Board for seven years before his Presidential term.  Tom was an Ambassador and loved to talk to anyone and everyone about our agency and did not miss an opportunity to share why he loves Heartland Family Service.  Our hearts and prayers go out to his wife and daughter, and though we are terribly sad, we are beyond thankful of the opportunity to know and work with him and for the countless hours spent devoted to our mission, our clients, and our staff.

Thank you so, so much for stopping by and reading these posts.  I am constantly trying to find more ways to put aside the highlight reel and to be real and raw with you.  I am just a midwest gal who loves her family, dogs, and career more than anything, with my passion for fashion integrated into all things Sara and Sabby Style!  Have an awesome day, GF’s!

Saturday Coffee + New Hair!

Hi friends and happy Saturday! How was everyone’s week? I hope you all had a lovely Easter holiday and that you were able to spend lots of time with your loved ones!

PIT //  I was home sick from work all day Monday with a horrible migraine which resulted in me getting sick all day 😦 It was awful.  I literally slept all day.  I rarely get these kind of crippling migraines, but when I do, I am down for the count.  Thankfully I was feeling better by Tuesday!  Though now I have an ear ache and I’m praying I don’t have to go to the Dr.!  Fingers crossed it doesn’t get any worse!

PEAK // Ya’ll, this girl is getting her hair did next week! Why is that my peak of the week? Well because I finally came to the realization that I need a style once and for all! I’ve been rocking the long dark locks for many a years now, but I’ve never really had a signature style.  Sure, I can “style” my hair a few different ways and it cooperates pretty easily, but I am at the point now where I don’t have any new tricks up my sleeve and I need a change!  I plan to go with a LOB and do some fun color!  Thanks to my girlfriend Nat, over at Noted Boutique, who always has the most gorgeous hair and she has shared her genius hair guru with me and I can’t wait!  Here are some ideas of what I’m thinking… Stay tuned!

Good morning, sistas!  Whew, we made it through another week, cheers to that! So Spring has definitely sprung here in NE and I am welcoming it with open arms! Very white, pasty arms, but open nonetheless.  I sure hope these warm temps stick around and we don’t encounter any more bouts of bitter cold & snow!

So….I miiiiight have been doing some spring shopping, inspired by these warmer days and Instagram, of course.  What I can’t get enough of right now… Marble print, Snakeskin, Neon pastels, Distressed Jeans, + some major arm charm!  I would love to know what you have been swooning over and what your favorite Spring trends are!  Here are a few items that recently found their way into my closet!

PIT // Goodbye for now Creighton basketball!  As I’m sure many of you know, Tony and I are die-hard Creighton basketball fans (his alma mater and I essentially “married” into it) and our season ended on Thursday night.  It was a tough season indeed (loosing Doug McDermott was no bueno) with more losses than wins, but man, I sure do love this program and am so fond of the young men that play each year; they are resilient and so fun to watch all year! But, as much as I hate to see the season end, I won’t be too upset trading in indoor winter activities for summer staples that involve outdoor patios, umbrellas, pools, golf course, & cold beverages!

PEAK // THE BASEMENT IS FINISHED.  Part One of our remodel will be completely done as of today! My dad is coming over to install our new light fixtures and I am so excited.  It is definitely a man-cave, but is much improved from dark wood paneled walls and now has clean & crisp white walls & trim!  We hung up a bunch of Tony’s golf pictures and framed posters of when he played baseball at Creighton.  And even though I had other ideas for wall decor, I love that we can display Tony’s accomplishments and have it be a space that he truly loves.  And you know I gussied it up wish some cute decor that doesn’t over-rule the manly vibe 🙂  My dad will be painting our master bedroom this weekend, too, so once that is done, we will be moving back into that space and I cannot wait!  Pics coming soon!

Thanks so much for stopping by and reading today; it means the world to me.  Have a blessed weekend, friends!

Coffee + Flowers

Hi friends and a Happy Saturday to you all!  How was everyone’s week? From the looks of IG, a lot of my insta-GF’s got a ton of snow these past few days and I must admit, I’m glad it wasn’t us!  I am soooooo ready for sunshine, longer days, outside runs, walking my boys, and spending many a days at my parents pool! Plus we’re going to Hawaii in June so that can’t get here soon enough!

PIT // Yesterday, Tony and I received some terrible news that a friend of ours had chosen to take his own life.  I won’t speak to the details and such, because really all that matters is that life is precious and there was a life lost.  We have so many whys and wonder how it ever came to this point, but I just pray that he has found peace and that his family finds comfort in their memories and love shared.

PEAK // It was sixty-freaking-three degrees yesterday!  I’m not mad about it.  It’s going to be beautiful this weekend and I can’t wait to get out there and enjoy it!  We’ll be spending the majority of our weekend painting the master bedroom, putting the basement back together, and binge watching House of Cards, but I will make a point to get out there and soak up the fresh air and Vitamin D!

Do you guys have any big plans? I would love to know what you gals do on those precious two days off and especially when warmer weather comes out to play!

Saturday Coffee // Me + YOU!

HOW PERFECT IS THIS MUG?!? It is so me, ask Tony! He knows not to talk to me until I’ve had my morning coffee!

Good morning and happy Saturday, friends! So today we (my work/Team) are hosting our annual Gala and I am so, so excited to finally see it all come together!  The copious amounts of coffee and donuts that are consumed during the weeks leading up to this day, along with the very long hours, are completely worth it when the end of the night comes and we realize we have raised SO much money that goes directly to the 50 programs offered through our agency!  So while you lovers are wining and dining with your men, I’ll be running my tail off and spending the evening with my closest 500 friends!

PIT // Is it bad that I truly cannot come up with something to put here?  It was a very busy week preparing for tonight’s event, but I have an amazing Team and work for an incredible organization, so I really can’t complain over working hard!  But I sure do miss my boys while I’m gone during the day.  As much as I love working and my job, I wouldn’t mind being a stay-at-home blogger/puppy mom/house girlfriend!

PEAK // On Thursday I was inducted into Optimist Club!  My nerd/love-to-be-involved side comes out every Thursday morning when I get up at the crack of dawn to drive 35 minutes to attend the 7am morning Optimist Club with a group of people who are about 50+ years older!  I love meeting new people, forming relationships, and being involved with the community, so while I complain about getting up early, I am honored and so happy to be an official member of this neat club! Raising money for scholarships, supporting local nonprofits, and volunteering is most definitely something I am blessed to be a part of!

BRAGGING MOMENT // So my sweet manfriend (his name is Tony, if you’re a new reader!) is so good about making Valentine’s Day special. I’m not talking cheesy stuff, but like true-blue, we’re best friends and we’re in this together, forever, kind of special.  P.S., And if you haven’t ever bought flowers from Whole Foods, you must! They have the best blooms, and I know I can count on coming home to a bountiful bouquet of my favorite pink roses!  Some years we do gifts, some years we don’t; it all just depends on our budget, recent expenses, etc. but we always take a moment, get each other a card and share how much we appreciate one another.  Since I have my work event tonight, we will exchange cards and gifts on Sunday and then maybe indulge in a little HH!  I don’t need an expensive dinner, in fact, I would rather cook at home together, make some drinks, and get tipsy!

Well ladies, I hope you all have a loved and blessed Valentine’s Day and I am sending hugs and love to you all!  Happy Galentine’s Day, sista-friends!

Saturday Coffee // Me + You!

Hi friends and happy freakin’ weekend to you all! How was everyone’s week? We got a crazy amount of snow (okay, not crazy like Boston dumped on, but still) throughout the week which made for a hectic and not normal work schedule.  Now don’t get me wrong, I LOVE an adult snow day, but man, when my routine is thrown off, I’m thrown off!  Needless to say I am thrilled that the weekend is upon us and looking forward to a normal work week!

ROGER UPDATE //  I first want to thank you all so very much for the well wishes and prayers for our sweet little Roger.  We received the best of the worst news and Rog indeed does have diabetes.  But, I must say how thankful I am that it is manageable and we have the means to do just that!  He is only five and will have plenty of life and years ahead of him, and that makes this puppy mama very, very happy!

PIT // Spending a truckload at the Vet’s office! My word. Literally, they suck the life out of us! And then you add two dogs into the mix, and I swear we are shelling out half our paychecks to them a 3-4 times a year! But, again, I am so thankful that we have the means to provide such happy lives to our two little boys and they are worth every cent… even though mama would rather buy shoes!

PEAK //  It was my Grandpa Sab’s 85th Birthday last week and unfortunately I was in the ER with that awful kidney stone when we were supposed to go out to dinner with our family.  But on Tuesday after work I went over to his house for a visit and let me just say, those visits fill my heart with joy.  Being in that house gives me so much comfort and joy and I can still see my Grandma there.  She has long since passed due to ALS, but thankfully my Grandpa met Regina, his lady friend, many years ago, and though it took a while for us to adjust, he is happy and not alone.  And that is really all that matters! Plus, she made Tony and I (and my mom, dad, & sister) some awesome slippers so I guess she’s a keeper 🙂

It’s also my mom’s 54th Birthday today! I can’t wait to head out with the fam tonight for some food and delicious drinks!  PS, my mom is the best ever.  Like really though.  Many people say I am just like her and I love that.  Because if I become half the woman that she is, then that is a fine life lived!

Thanks so much for stopping by today and have yourselves a wonderful weekend!
