It’s been a FUN couple of weeks around here. We’ve been settling into a nice summer routine. Happy to see our friends again, celebrate and prepare for baby, and just trying to savor these long sunny days!
Our good family friend couldn’t make it to my Tampa baby shower so she offered to do our hair the morning of! It was so thoughtful and it felt even more special to get one-on-one time with her! Also, is there no better feeling than having someone else wash and blow dry your hair?! I felt so spoiled!
This scoopneck bikini is such a good bathing suit choice.
It has a great amount of coverage and strikes a great balance between sexy and sporty! I already miss my parents’ pool…. it was so nice to just float around.
This dog! Whenever I pick them up from the boarding place, they sleep for DAYS. They love getting to play all day every day with all the other dogs– I never feel guilty dropping them off. Nothing says “happy dog” like a tired dog. Teddy spent two full days on the couch catching up on sleep; this position he was in had me giggling.
I know I’m such a first time mom, but getting the stroller (a baby shower gift from my parents!) was such a highlight. I was walking it around the house like a crazy lady to “break it in.” It’s stored in our basement now, but I’m tempted to bring it out and do practice walks with the dogs so they can get used to walking with it, too. (But just how crazy do I want my neighbors to think I am…. haha.)
I’m exposing myself as a true grandma here…. but I’m here to tell you this neck lamp is worth every penny.
I originally got it so I could better see while needlepointing. It has three different levels of brightness and is perfect for reading in bed at night too. If I stay up late to read, I always felt bad having my lamp on, but this one doesn’t bother Mike at all.
Our farmers’ market is open again! I swung by last week to pick up some produce (and this broccoli rabe lasagna we are obsessed with). It was very warm and I had sweat dripping down my back. Used it as an excuse to get a little popsicle!
Just when I was starting to think I wouldn’t be hit with the “nesting” urge, it really hit.
It was like a light switch flipping on. One day, I was like, “Eh, we’re fine” and the next I was tearing through every drawer and closet on a purging spree. The place I had been neglecting the most?! MY OFFICE. It was such a disaster…. I went through every file, every box, every drawer. It felt AMAZING!!!!
I have been making the same salad for lunch nearly every day for the past few months. (Once I could stomach anything besides English muffins, I wanted ALL the crunchy vegetables!) Summer produce hits a little different though!!
Sara Fitz’s latest collection of Chappy Wrap blankets are available now! They sent me the darling striped shirt one and I love it so much. It’s one of my favorite prints that Sara Fitz has done and it looks so summery and fun on the blanket.
After a year of not really being able to see each other (and months in different states), Elsa and I are making up for lost time. We just got together for coffee and some needlepointing. (My outfit is linked here.)
This closet was a hot mess a couple of weeks ago. We’re converting the guest room into the nursery and the guest room closet was a hodge podge of storage. Still has a way to go (super excited to hang some wallpaper!), but it’s already showing great signs of improvement. (Baskets are from the Container Store!)
