Happy weekend friends! Sharing a few random things today because I’m in a random sort of mood. I’m watching Fred Claus while I type this. A Christmas movie in July. And it’s seriously making me crave chocolate milk. Which has nothing to do with Christmas. Or July. Or Fred Claus. I just had some yesterday at my mom’s house and it was really good.

Random #1 – It’s so good to be home. We just got back from Utah today. Had a great trip with the family! It was my third week of travel and to be honest, that was a bit long for me. I can’t even tell you how good it felt to be back in my own house puttering around today. We’ve had so much fun but I’m excited to get in a nice little summer routine with the kids and just be HOME. (I hear Dorthy’s shoes clickin’..)
Random #2 – Had a fun 4th of July in SLC at my sister’s house. Spending the holiday with her and her family has become such a fun tradition! We were missing my sister-in-law this year. She is due with baby #3 in a few weeks so we are all counting down!
Thank you Car for supplying us with appropriate head gear. The hats for the guys took the cake. Merica!
Kids love the annual Piñata.
And the guys started their own tradition of watching Rocky 4. Because what’s more patriotic than Rocky 4? “If Is can change.. and yous can change.. everybody can change!”
Random #3 – I need some new hair tools. Help! I feel like the straight iron I use (Nano Titanium pictured above) is pulling my hair apart! My hair keeps snagging on it and it just isn’t working well lately. I need a new straight iron and don’t know what to buy. Do you any of you use one you love? Something strong (and safe!) for really thick hair? My blow dryer is also years old and on its last dying breath. I started researching the best hair dryers and this one kept popping up..
Have you all heard of this Supersonic Hair Dryer!? Looks so strange doesn’t it!? I’m so curious how it works! It’s crazy expensive for a hair dryer but wow.. amazing reviews. Seems to be worth the hype. Wondering if any of you have tried it before?
This Drybar blow dryer also has great reviews but I’m still on the hunt! I don’t want to spend a ton, but I do keep my hair dryers for years and they have to work hard with my thick hair. Would love to hear what you all use if you have one you love!
And on another totally random side note I’m getting so excited for the beloved Nordstrom Anniversary sale! Have you all seen the catalog!? CUTE stuff this year. I’m going in on Wednesday this week to scope it all out for you! Pre-sale starts Thursday the 13th and then it opens to everyone July 21st so make sure to check back for a full post of my favorites! The good stuff always sells out SO fast. I’m going to have to watch Rocky 4 with the boys the day before to get pumped. And drink LOTS of chocolate milk. This sale is serious business and I need to be on my A game. ;)
Random #4 – My hydrangeas are blooming! They are small but mighty. Move over Palm Trees.. a few East Coast plants never hurt anyone. ;)
Random #5 – So much fun hearing from all of you who are signing up and excited about Grove! If you missed my last post I shared my favorite cleaning supplies and how you can snag this fun set (that includes the white tray) for free!
To celebrate this summer of entertaining I’ve partnered with Grove to give away a beautiful bunch of farmgirl flowers to one lucky follower AND a friend! They are GORGEOUS. Head to my Instagram page and check the post with these flowers in it for details on how to enter!
The fun giveaway and free products when you sign up for Grove only last a few more days so don’t put it off! And let me know if you have any questions at all about joining! I’ve been using Grove for years and am happy to explain anything about how it works to you. Their customer service is also amazing and if you shoot them an e-mail they can help too. :)
Random #6 – (You didn’t really think I’d end at #5 did you?) Because we are talking all things cleaning lately I’m sharing a favorite past post if you missed it! Or need the reminders again. I know I do!
I hope it helps! K – coming back soon with a fun organizing post! Fred Claus just ended and there is no chocolate milk in sight (major bummer) so I better sign off.
Talk soon friends! :)
