Loving Lately

Jun 26, 2014

A few things I am loving lately below.  What I am not loving is the fact that I have a Summer cold, hoping it goes away soon!!

Tie Dye.  Just got this Joie Sweater (on sale) and love it.

The new Lacroix flavors only out at Target.  I  bought them all to try and I will report back with my favorites.

Summer Salads.  Now that it is Summer I have been all about fresh salads.  Two of my favorites:  Caprese + Kale Caesar with Chickpea Croutons (under recipes tab)

The fact that Sterling saw the small grocery carts and said ” oh, so that is what those small carts are for, my baby”  and yes he calls Frances his baby:)  I let him push her for a few minutes and it was too funny.  Frances actually loved it.

The Tory Burch Calita Dress, it is even cuter in person and onsale- but beware it is on the short at least for me and I am almost 5’10. I am wearing a size small.  Love the neckline, its the perfect Summer tunic!

Vibrant Food Cookbook.  I am a cookbook hoarder love them all, this is my new favorite cookbook filled with gorgeous pictures and recipes.

This Airhead Candy from Target, it is enough to give me cavities but so worth it.

 I bought it for Sterling but ate half the pack go figure.

\ Equipment Kyle Top

\ Target Palm Bikini

Target does it again.  This suit shocked me, cute fit, great price.  Bottoms run small or at least they did on me, I got a medium in the top and a large in the bottoms- I like coverage on my bum.

Grace Atwood’s Collection with Baublebar, its real good. One of my favorites, it’s the kind of necklace that would go with anything!

\ The Crystal Pheasant Bib

I also love this ring and its only $28!!  Such a steal !


The fact that Frances Moon turned 7 months yesterday.  I can’t get enough of her.  She truly has the sweetest demeanor and is such a scrumptious baby.


Good reminder sometimes.

    Caprese salad in the summer is the best!! Can't believe Frances is already 7 months old!! She and Sterling are starting to look alike- love her in the little cart.

    I bought all 3 La Croix last weekend, love them all! The TB dress is awesome, just can't justify $195 on a summer dress though šŸ™ Can't wait for the kale salad recipe. Happy Thursday!

  4. I love Frances sitting in that chair! She is the happiest baby, and her smile says it all! Cute suit too — I would never guess it's from Target!

  5. Where do you shop for Frances Moon's clothes, she always looks so cute, and I would love other options than Carter's!

  6. Frances Moon is one of the CUTEST babies I have ever seen. Such a sweet little baby!! xo

  7. Always looking for salad recipes and I am obsessed with tomatoes so that looks delish! Can't leave without mentioning that Frances is the cutestttt baby <3

  8. Frances looks so adorable in her little peacock chair, I can't believe she's already 7 months!! And I'm loving all of your recent purchases, especially the Target bikini and TB dress!

  9. We are still waiting on our tomatoes to harvest! But when it is time, that is all we eat. Caprese at every meal! Best time of the year. I have that swimsuit too! I actually posted about it today with its lookalike much more expensive counterpart. Always love reading your blog. It is my morning routine! Your food pictures I swear are food porn! They always look so delicious!


  10. I love La Croix water. I've tried the mango and apricot so far; my Target was out of passion fruit the other day.
