Thoughts For Friday

Jul 7, 2017

Happy Friday!  I feel like this week flew by because of July 4th.  This weekend we are off to dinner with our neighbors tonight and then we are gonna hit up the Farmers Market tomorrow.  I have not been in weeks and have been missing my fresh produce!

My swimsuit is old and out of stock but you can find several similar options HERE | Popsicle float

We grilled out with some friends for the 4th and walked to the end of our street to watch the fireworks.  The dress I am wearing has been a favorite this Summer!

These 2 were pretty excited.

Several of you wanted the recipe for the strawberry muffins I posted on my instastories.  This was my first time using this recipe and I will definitely use it again.  It was super easy and the kids loved helping me smash the strawberries.  You can see the recipe HERE.

These earrings have been on repeat.  They are lightweight and go with everything.

A few of you wanted to know what lipgloss I was wearing in the pic above.  It is the Beautycounter lip gloss in Peony– I also love the Dahlia shade as well.  They both are great pinks.

I took Sterling rock climbing this week and he loved it.  We bought a pass at Half Moon Outfitters and he has been begging me to go everyday.  I was honestly really impressed with his skills!

I made the most delicious chopped Greek Salad last night for dinner.  I served it with salmon and it was so good.

I just finished up Game of Thrones Season 1 and 2.  I have to say when I started it I was less than thrilled.  It is not typically the type of show I like to watch but so many people recommended it so I figured I would give it a shot.  Now I actually really look forward to watching it.  Sometimes it is too much violence  and I can’t keep all the character straight but overall I am really really liking it!

If you love white blouses like me these are 2 great ones I recently bought.

Slouchy Blouse- this one is currently 40% off.  Runs on the large side so size down, I am wearing size XS.

This blouse is under $80, runs TTS, I am wearing a small.

Have a great Friday!

    Love the quote at the end and the 1st picture is AMAZING!

  2. Fun! SS and Fletch were not into the fireworks this year. I feel like our whole side of the island is still fireworks happy! That Greek Salad looks awesome!
