Thoughts For Thursday

Jul 19, 2018

Happy Thursday!  Sorry for the lack of posts the last two days but life has just been busy with the kids!  I love Summer but can’t wait to get back on a good schedule once school starts.  It’s funny we live at the beach yet we rarely go to the beach.  Sometimes it is just easier to hit up the pool but yesterday we had a beach day and loved every minute of it!!  Sterling was too busy swimming to get in any pictures.  Frances still loves to be in photos but he usually doesn’t so I don’t pressure him too!

I also wanted to say thank you for all the questions you guys sent me on instastories I still have not had time to answer them all but I think I am going to do a blog post with all the answers in one spot, so stay tuned.

Swimsuit (also HERE) | Sunglasses

The people at Beachmate’s were sweet enough to send me this beach tote and it is beyond awesome. It comes with a cooler, shovels, and 5 buckets for building a sand castle or really anything all in this tote.  It is so easy to carry with everything in one large tote. There is a coupon right now for $5.00 off!

Here is a better look at everything it comes with.

We had our final swim team party this week.  It was a fun season and Sterling did awesome,  but man I am glad it’s over!

We had a sleepover this week with a few friends and it was so fun!
