Thoughts For Friday

Jun 22, 2018

This has been such a busy Summer so far but in a good way!!  Lots of activities to keep us from being bored!  Swim team has been a full on time commitment but I am so proud of Sterling,  he is loving it.  This was from our meet Tuesday night and he got 1st place for backstroke!

I tried the cutest new restaurant this week with a few girlfriends.  It is called Parcel 32 and just opened on King street.

The inside was just as beautiful as the outside.

We ordered lots of items to share and everything was wonderful.  I really liked the menu,  lots of fresh local veggies. The hushpuppies were a favorite we went back and ordered a second order!

my girls: Ashley, Krystine, and Caycee

My good friend Ashley aka sweetsoutherprep:)

It has been hot as heck here so we have done lots of indoor activities and pool time.  Rock climbing is always a favorite!

I have raved about this swimsuit before and just love it.  I recently got this new color.  The fit is amazing- the bust is padded and the rouching in the stomach area helps suck you in and make your tummy look flat.  I am almost finished with the book When Life Gives you Lululemons and love it!!  I am wearing a size 6 in the suit.

A few recent purchases from Amazon I am loving.

Blouse under $20 – I am wearing a small

This is the beach tote from my post Tuesday.  It is made of neoprene which I love.  It makes it super easy to clean if it gets wet or sandy.

Beach Tote– under $40 and comes in several colors

I also ordered the kids this float for the pool and it has been a huge hit!  It is under $20 and you can fit two people in it.

I also ordered this PJ Set.  It is the same brand that makes my favorite ruffled pair and you can’t beat the price under $30 for the set.

Dinner out last night with my dad and little lady.  Both our dresses are on major sale!

We ate at Mondos which is one of my favorite restaurants on James Island.  We shared risotto balls and I had the arugula mushroom salad with fried artichokes.

Have a great weekend!
