Happy weekend! I hope you’re all having a good one so far! Ours has been nice. Really relaxed. Spending lots of time outside on hikes and swimming. We’ve had some pool floats in a closet that my kids got for birthday presents over the years and Kole begged me to get them all out. I had been putting off blowing any of them up because I didn’t have a good air pump so I ordered this electric air pump (good reviews!) and it worked so well! I had to share it with you in case you could use one too. So random I know.. but if you need a good air pump this one is great and has 3 different nozzle sizes. MUCH better than attempting to blow them up myself!
Living his best life.. ha! We’re getting very creative keeping everyone entertained at home. I’m pretty much in the “anything goes and whatever works” stage at this point.
Even if that means 10 pool floats in the water at once.
Speaking of pool and fun in the sun I found the cutest cover-up romper! Love the stripes and fun neckline and sleeves. I put this over my suit and took this pic right after I got it in the mail and have pretty much been living in it since! I bought these cute slide sandals last year and love them in the summer. They are flat so not great shoes for lots of walking, but for the kind of walking I’m mostly doing right now – pool to the house to the grocery store to the house to the pool – they are perfect. :) I want them in rose gold too!
Also remember my new Loving Tan self tanning spray and application mitt I mentioned in my last post? I tried it and will NEVER USE ANYTHING ELSE AGAIN. Seriously.. so good! The mitt makes it easy to spread on and you can see exactly where it’s going so it’s almost hard to mess up. No smell, it dries fast (I bought the 2 hour express) and it looks so much more realistic than others I’ve used. I don’t use tanners regularly but during the summer months when we’re in the pool a lot I love a little color – especially on my legs. I bought the dark (comes in medium, dark and ultra dark) and I feel like it’s perfect for me. I have really fair skin but I’ve found that the lightest tanners are usually too light and don’t make much of a difference. (So if you already tan easily I would go with ultra dark.) I wanted to try it out before I gave you my honest thoughts. So honest thoughts! Everyone was right.. worth paying a little more for this! I’m so excited about it.
Ok.. I had this fun idea of starting a new series called Friday 5 where I share 5 similar items I’ve been looking at during the week. I’m usually hunting for something specific to wear or for my house and I always come across lots of cute options along the way! This week I’ve been looking at cute pool cover-ups for summer and lamp options for my bedroom. Of course the idea is that I post my Friday 5 ON Friday which obviously didn’t happen. I’ll try to be more punctual next week! But I’m making no promises because like I said.. “anything goes and whatever works” stage around here. :)
Aren’t they all so cute!? I have had #1 for years. Such a staple. The rest are sitting in my on-line cart waiting for me to make a decision. They’re all too cute to decide! You can see lots of other fun options for summer here.
This picture is truly horrible (I snapped it from an IG story video because I forgot to get a pic of these lamps earlier today!) but these are the cute new lamps I bought for El’s room. Unfortunately I don’t have a lot of progress to share in her room. We got started on it, then we got busy, then all things Covid hit and it just hasn’t been a priority. But her lamps finally came (we ordered them months ago – they were backordered!) and they are motivating me to prioritize her room again. They also kick started a search for white and gold lamps because I’m so in love with hers! Thinking I might go for the same lamp look in my bedroom.
These are my favorites I’ve found so far!
When I make an effort to get out of my swim suit and cover-up these days I’m still just reaching for joggers! Found this cute pair on Amazon and they are so soft! They do run a little big. I’m wearing a small because they don’t come in xs and I had to roll the top elastic part down. Still keeping them because they are so soft and comfortable and really cute!
Another fun pain of joggers! Nordstrom has so many cute pairs that keep coming in.. making this stay at home situation comfy at least! :)
Lots of fun Memorial Day Sales this weekend. Here are some favorites I already have and things I’m debating!
Playroom Sources & Favorites on Sale:
Also always cute stuff at Nordstrom on sale! My favorite bras are marked down (LOVE Natori) and so are my favorite flip flops!
We took the kids on a drive the other day and stopped at a gas station and I snapped this pic. I was cracking up at it when I got back in the car! I didn’t tell them to all look horrified! Ha ha. Honestly it looks like we’re attempting to rob the place. These are crazy times aren’t they!?
Feeling especially grateful for my family and those who have died for our freedoms this year. Enjoy the rest of your weekend! I’m praying for everyone’s safety, health and peace of mind.
Anything goes and whatever works right?
We’ve got this. :)
