I don’t know who made this, but I would definitely read it:

J and I are headed to go see Christopher Robin this weekend, and I’m pretty sure we’re bringing Eeyore:

And that’s it for the weekend! I’ve got two school supply bags ready to take to meet the teacher, lunchboxes ready to go, and first day of school outfits! Now if someone could please tell me how I have a fourth grader and a first grader that’d be great.

We are T-minus two weeks to school starting, how?! We are soaking up the last of summer vacation by sleeping in, watching Chopped past bedtime, and enjoying lots of outside play time when the temperature is decent. And when it’s boiling hot outside, we’re pulling out all the Legos, GI Joe’s, and Imaginext. And playing! Before school, schedules, sports, and scouts all start up again.

Summer and fall looks. I love the pop of red in the jacket and the crisscross back of the dress.

A new chapter book series for J.

Simple tips for creating next level eyeliner.

The case for eating well before bedtime. And that means eating a long time before bedtime, not eating good things, but eating good things is fine, as well. You can still have snacks, though….so, winning!

Perfect summer chopped salad, recommended by my sister!

The dress in my Gap shopping cart.

Because I love Leslie and Ron.

We’ve been doggy sitting all week! I think that A would be perfectly content with a dog sleeping at the end of his bed always. This third week of summer has included VBS in the morning and swim lessons in the afternoon. My boys are still waking up at 6:30 a.m. so I just don’t think any amount of activity will convince them to sleep in, ha! The boys passed their swim test, so they now get to move up to the next level swim class! This was their goal for swimming, so they were all pumped! It includes swimming the length of an Olympic size pool without stopping, so it’s quite a feat! This weekend we are planning to get in some free play pool time, test out J’s new bike, and celebrate Father’s Day!

Bees are totally genius, another reason to fear them.

The perfect exhibit to take J. And then maybe a Braves game. 🙂

I’m starting a must eat dessert list for our Disney trip. The mermaid cupcake is high on that list.

I added a whole bunch of books to my reading list after talking to my Mom this week.

Perfect sunset. ?

Proxemics in action. Also known as why people get offended that I have a bigger personal space bubble than they do.

Key lime pie was created by a ghost?? The key lime pie from Marlin Grill has been my favorite so far in Destin, but no worries I will try more!

We are officially on summer break! That means for two whole months there are no lunches to be prepped, no morning rush, no car line, staying up late, sleeping in, and lots of cousin time. The boys are pumped and I’m just glad that I get to join in on the fun! Right now we are catching up on Battle Bots and Pokemon episodes and I’m still binge watching Chef’s Table episodes after the boys go to bed. And now on to some of our favorites from the week!

I honestly need to stop collecting lip balms…it’s a problem!
