Where to begin…. I feel like so much has happened this week, and yet it flew by. Since we chatted last Sunday, I had my 50th birthday party on Monday, which was a blast. Paul did an amazing job with decorations. A good friend catered the food, which was delicious and beautifully presented, and we even had live music. A friend of mine and her music partner play all over the area, and they came and performed for us. It was such a good time!
Then I tried to fit in a bunch of appointments on Tuesday because I knew I’d be consumed with the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale from Wednesday on, which I was.
I still have no resolution on my dental issues, and I appreciate all who have commented and emailed with suggestions. Although the pain isn’t as severe as it was initially, something isn’t right, so I’m definitely going to get a second opinion. I just need to figure out where to go for that… maybe to an oral surgeon to make sure there is no crack in the tooth. I wear a retainer that serves as a night guard, but I know I clench and grind my teeth.
I’ve actually been sleeping without the retainer this week, at the suggestion of my endodontist, to see if maybe it’s too tight and that was causing issues. It was made for me right after the first root canal back in January, so it’s fairly new, but my mouth has never felt right since that root canal. The retainer was made weeks after that, once I had the permanent crown put on. All that to say, I don’t think that’s the cause, although it may be exacerbating the problem.
Meanwhile, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is in full swing, and it is SO much better this year! I’m finding some great pieces, and the inventory is holding up better than it has in years. HINT: The Nordstrom made brands have the most inventory. I assume that’s because they have more control the production, and other premium brands probably place strict limits on the quantities they’re willing to provide at such a deep discount before the fall season even begins.
A lot of the more special, unique pieces have sold out by now, but there are still a lot of good wardrobe staples that are fully stocked. Plus, returns will be trickling in over the next few weeks, so keep an eye on your favorites. I already took a big load back to the store this week. I put together a page with a bunch of my #NSale Looks, if you’re interested.
In other news, Paul took me to our favorite French restaurant last night for my birthday dinner, and that was amazing as always. I wore that Vince dress from the #NSale.
And this afternoon, we’re meeting up with friends for yet another birthday celebration. I promise, after that, you will no longer have to hear about my 50th birthday!
Looking ahead to this next week, we have Amazon Prime Day coming up on Tuesday and Wednesday! They have some really good Beauty deals, among other things. I don’t get into Amazon Prime Day the way I do the #NSale, but I do plan to cover that with my personal favorites.
I also have some non-Nordstrom Anniversary Sale Try-Ons that I want to share with you before they sell out. I feel like it’s been all mirror selfies all the time lately, but that is the quickest and most efficient way I know to get the most information out to you. I’m meeting with Alison on Wednesday to shoot the looks I need for the rest of the month, so there will be a little more variety after that!
I’m also started to look forward to our Maine vacation the following week. I’m going to need it! It will be a short one this year because we’re fitting it in between my kids’ camp schedules, but at least all five of will be able to go this year.
I haven’t even taken time to exercise or go outside for a walk this week, so I’m going to do that this morning before church. We had some rain and clouds yesterday, but it’s a beautiful morning here today. I hope you all have a lovely and relaxing Sunday!
