Holly, Katy and I are so glad you are here! We hope you will share some of what’s been going on in your world by linking up with Royally Waiting. I’m also choosing to join Shay and Mel for What’s Up Wednesday because it is seriously one of my favorite linkups every single month!
What We’re Eating
Still working on clean eating with this Fed and Fit Barbacoa. I seriously could eat tacos every day and be perfectly happy. If you haven’t tried jicama tortillas definitely check the fresh food section of your grocery store. I love them especially for 8 calories and less than 2 carbs each! The Fed & Fit: A 28 Day Food & Fitness Plan with tons of recipes is a favorite for me. More realistic with lots of grace for those of us who really want to live a (mostly) clean lifestyle but still want to actually live!
Breakfasts like this make me so happy (minus the busted yolk). Some people feel kale is over rated but I genuinely love it cooked with olive oil and sea salt. I made a huge batch of the barbacoa so having with breakfast was an added bonus!
I shared a few more of my fave clean eating recipes last week for Tasty Tuesday at The Blended Blog!
What I’m Reminiscing About
Two years ago this week was huge for our family and we were so grateful for dreams that come true! So much has happened on Riley’s journey since then and it’s really hard to believe it was only two years. Seeing all the pictures of this special day pop up on my timehop just brought a smile to my face. There is nothing better than a family that supports one another!
What I’m Loving
The Ann Taylor sale is definitely getting my attention right now! How fun are these earrings? Well, they are only $9.99 with the current discount and I will let you know when they arrive if they are as fun as they look! I also snagged this top and these pants.
What We’ve Been Up To
It’s been quite the hodge podge and I’ve been busy driving kids to and from dance, football, baseball and mixing in some volunteering here and there. We are working on Dillon’s learning permit, taking x-rays and prepping for Carly to get braces and staying up way too late every night. A few individual date nights with my kids one on one and one trip to visit my Mamaw. It’s been a busy month, way busier than I really expected it to be!
What I’m Dreading
Nothing again this month…woohoo!
What I’m Working On
Drinking 64 ounces of water every day. I do not really like drinking water and nothing seems to help. Every once in awhile it just tastes amazing and I can down a lot but in general it is not my favorite. This time of year when I’m super busy at work it is worse because I just get distracted and fail to get up to refill. This week I ordered this stainless swig bottle as well as a cheaper thermos bottle which both hold 64 ounces. I filled up at the beginning of the day and filled my glass all day long without having to get up. The water stayed cold and I survived drinking it all. We will see if I can continue! What are your secrets for getting in enough water every day?
What I’m Excited About
Rodan + Fields brought back the Lash Boost + Regimen special! I’ve shown you before my love for lash boost and the increase in lash length but using the reverse regimen to lighten uneven skin tone is also a favorite. Right now bundling one of the regimens with lash boost will score you 20% off. Sign up for perks connect and get an even better deal. Not sure what regimen you would need? Visit the solution tool to see which is right for you or contact me at email@example.com
What I’m Watching/Reading
Y’all, you need to read Year of Yes! It is so positive and uplifting and thought provoking. Did I mention Shonda is funny?! I have gotten so much out of this book and it’s an easy read. Hoping to complete and finish my review asap.
We went to see the new Cars movie last week and I was unimpressed. Maybe I was just tired from the week or maybe it really sucked but I’ll let you judge for yourself.
What I’m Wearing
Loving this off the shoulder top! It seriously is so much cuter in person than it looks online and it comes several great summer colors. I knew I should have grabbed it in black too before it was gone. Of course my leopard wedges never disappoint and while they are several years old I’ve linked a similar pair. You can never go wrong with a fun bag in the summer to add a little extra fun to your outfit!
You can never go wrong with a lightweight sundress in the Texas heat! Give me some great lighting and I just can’t help a selfie!
Swing dress + cold shoulder? Yes, I think I will. I love mixing patterns and floral+stripes+leopard is an easy win if the patterns are right!
What’s better than a pineapple clutch and a super cute maxi skirt? A skirt with pockets!! This skirt is super cute in person and the fabric will be great for summer. I love, love, love these tanks because they are cut a little more forgiving around the midsection. I wore it once and was so incredibly sad to find a hole in it the next day and it is sold out in yellow but still available in red.
What I’m Doing This Weekend
As if you guys even need to wonder anymore…..we will be in Georgetown, TX for more baseball.
What I’m Looking Forward to Next Month
July the kids go to camp which is the highlight of their summer but also a nice break for the adults! Hoping while the kids are away the adults will find a couple of days to play!
Bonus: What’s Your Favorite July 4th Tradition
Fireworks and fun food! I have to work on Monday the 3rd so we will not be going out of town but we typically watch some fireworks and spend some time at Keith’s uncles doing a little fishing with our cousins and eating some BBQ. The kids love festive waffles…or maybe they just really love whipped cream and they may have now outgrown these fun drinks but I LOVE making them. Hmm…maybe I need to make these into adult beverages! The key to the drink is finding 3 drinks with varying levels of sugar. I believe what worked best for me was grabbing the Sobee pina colada, cranberry juice and blue gatorade zero.
