Friday Favorites

Happy Friday, friends!

I am currently writing this post from the airport! Chris, my brother, and sister in law are off for a weekend adventure. Follow along on instagram (@SarahTuckerUp) to see where we are going!! All I can hint at is that the weekend involves lots of food and baseball!

Let's get started on my favorites, shall we?

1. I talked about this outfit on Wednesday and so many of you felt the same way about mules. TRUST ME! #uglyoff #cuteon

Also, I can't wear this cactus tank without getting multiple comments about it. Plus, it is super soft and stretchy. 

And, a cardigan with tassels? Yes, please! I stupidly washed and dried a batch of my cardigans and now they can fit a doll. So, I've been in search of replacements that are good transition pieces. This cardigan is really lightweight and would be great for layering.

2. Graham. This child is SO full of life. Anyone who meets him knows how much joy he brings to a room. He will be the class clown because he loves to make others laugh. If you merely giggle at something he is doing, he will continue doing it until you "sign" to him "all done." All done is taught to kids while their eating, but G takes it to a whole other level. I'll be singing in the car and he signs "all done." Chris will be tickling him and he signs "all done." We will be at the park swinging and when he is over it he signs "all done." It is so useful because we always know when he has had enough!

3. Working out has been something that, as a family (including my bro and sis in law), we are committing to do together. I get more motivated when there are other people pushing me to workout. We've been doing Kayla Itsines BBG program. Graham loves to get in on the action and tends to take the place of my weights. 

4. Random pictures of my child. That's an everyday favorite, but I couldn't help add a few of my recent favorite pictures.

5. Y'all have been LOVING this magnetic phone holder and I don't blame you. It is amazing and would make a perfect stocking stuffer!

6. Speaking of Christmas...My sign shop is exploding! Tucker Up & Co. has really been depending on the "Co." (i.e. my family!) lately and I'm so blessed by it all! Be sure to get in your holiday orders early as I will be closing the shop before Thanksgiving to ensure I can fulfill all my orders and spend time with my family. These growth charts are, by far, the hottest item lately and would make a great gift for any family!

Have a great weekend and be sure to follow along on my weekend adventure!

New Favorite Shoes + Link Up

Wednesday, August 16, 2017

Right before school started my dad took me on a little back to school shopping trip. I think it is true that I'll always be his little girl, because he sure treats me like it. And, I don't mind one bit!

After I had Graham I got rid of most of my flats because they just. weren't. comfortable. Starting back up for the school year, I knew I needed some and, honestly, I thought these looked terrible just sitting there on the shoe rack. Then, I saw a sales girl wearing them and they looked SO CUTE! And, now that I have them, I have to agree. So ugly off your foot, SO cute on!!

Happy Wednesday!

My New Job + Life Lately

Monday, August 14, 2017


I sort of left you guys hanging on whether or not I got a job and I am super happy to announce that I accepted a position as an instructional support teacher and an elementary school not far from my pervious one. I am really excited to be in a new place, doing something new!! We started back (just teachers) last Thursday and, if I'm being honest, it felt really good to get up and have a purpose for the day!

Graham is going to a 'summer camp' at the church he goes to preschool at. Real preschool will start in a few weeks, but they so graciously put together this little camp for all the teachers who send their kiddos there. I thought he would cry a little when I dropped him off, but I was so wrong! He totally knew his teachers looked familiar and went right to them. I asked for a kiss and he half-heartedly leaned his forehead towards me and then he took off for the toys. It made me feel good about leaving him!

This past weekend we had some family in town and decided to take all the kids to the Dallas World Aquarium. I highly recommend going early if you are wanting to go! We got there right at 9:00am and it was perfect. It never felt crowded and when we were leaving around 11:00am, the line to get in was super long! The aquarium is close to Shake Shack, which was a perfect place to let the older kids burn off some energy. They played corn-hole and ping pong. It was a cloudy day, so we sat outside.

After we ate, G fell asleep in the car almost immediately. When we got home, everyone took a nap! It was pouring rain and the perfect lazy afternoon.

Saturday night we went to my cousin's house to swim and hangout. I love when family is around because someone always wants to hold/play with G which gives me a little break!

Sunday I worked on signs all day long! Chris inherited an 1100 lb smoker from his uncle that him and three friends managed to move from the trailer into our backyard! I can see lots of BBQs in our future!

Sunday night we gave Graham his first big haircut!! I'm not at all sentimental, so, although his curls were adorable, his hair needed to be cleaned up! He looks like such a little boy now!! (I failed to get a good picture of him from the front!)

Now it is Sunday night and I'm asking myself where the weekend went!! This week is my last week before students start school! There is no better energy than the first day of school!

Happy Monday!
