summer faves. latest crushes.

Don’t worry, I am still alive. Yes, I have been a bit absent in the world of blogging. I’m trying, but not sure how successful I’ll be at it. Being a mom, keeping the house clean, trying to work, finding time to volunteer in classes, blah, blah, blah. You know it, so I’m pretty sure I don’t need to go through the whole list with you has put this to the bottom. Sorry, friends.

The good news? Summer is here! We are officially on our 7th day and I can’t believe it. Time for fun and not having to pack lunches every day. Can I get an AMEN? With that said, my summer crushes. Won’t you crush with me?


SUMMER CRUSH ONE … ICE CREAM TUB!

Sur La Table, my home away from home, is where you can find this reusable and dishwasher-safe ice cream tub.  We are all about making homemade ice cream in our Cuisinart Ice Cream Maker and I found this gem the other day that has {already} made my life easier! Easy route? Use one of the ice cream starters to get it done in a cinch. Our fave is Mint Chocolate chip!

SUMMER CRUSH TWO … MASON JAR + STRAW = HAPPINESS!

bucks straws

I love water. Like, I seriously love it. Just about as much as I love jars. My latest crush has been gulping down water in my 32 ounce mason jar with fabulous, colorful straws. Find the tropical reusable straws at your nearest Starbucks {I’m sure there are about 10 within a 2 mile radius!} and pop it in a large ole’ mason jar. Add water, or whatever you fancy. If anything, you can thank me for being hydrated.


SUMMER CRUSH THREE … NERF LAZER TAG GUNS

No joke. These are seriously fun. Me and Gray had a serious battle this morning and I was huffing and puffing by the end of it. Not to mention, I got some serious rug burns because I was committed. Do I dare say that the 8 year old beat me? These are so much fun! And, the best part is they don’t require nerf bullets. AWESOME! We found our guns here for Sawyer’s birthday and bought these rechargeable batteries to go with them. I think some more might be in our future.


SUMMER CRUSH FOUR … LULUEMON SPRING BREAK AWAY SHORTS

This isn’t just my summer crush this year, in fact I fell in love with these last year and I am still head over heels for them. I may {or may not} have a few pairs of the Spring Break Away Shorts because they are seriously that amazing. Check out all the colors this season!
Here’s why I love them:
| not too tight & longer length my thighs appreciate |
| can dress up or down |
| sweat-wicking fabric, thank you |


Do you have any crushes you just can’t help but smile at this summer? Share! I want to know. Maybe we can share our crushes and crush together.

try. enjoy. share.
