Hey friends, long time no see! Here's what's been going on lately:

Last weekend eating lunch on Shem Creek with the family. It was a beautiful day but SO hot. Summer is here! 

I've been listening to a lot of podcasts lately, mostly when I'm laying in bed getting ready to go to sleep. My favorites are: The Skinny Confidential, Goop, and Mind Body Green. The SC is great because Lauren and her husband Michael always interview the most interesting people and are really good about finding topics that are current and trendy. They recently interviewed Patricia from Southern Charm and I really enjoyed hearing how she came to be.

Elsie turned 1 year old on June 5th! It was truly the fastest year ever! Months leading up to her birthday I was so sad about her turning 1. Then I remembered how much I loved the 1-2 age and quickly got over it, haha! I'm planning on doing a blog post about her birthday party one day! Until then, here's Oliver's 1st birthday party for you to look at!

I recently bought Kristin Cavallari's cookbook, True Roots, and it has some really good recipes. You know how sometimes you get a cookbook and the recipes are just so off the wall and impossible to make it just ends up collecting dust rather than being used? (I'm looking at you Gwyneth Paltrow) Well, this one isn't like that at all. I couldn't wait to start making something out of it and chose the Buffalo Chicken Salad. It was delicious and fairly easy to make. Next up, I'm going to make her Oatmeal Zucchini Muffins.

I love how denim skirts are back in style right now. Thinking about snatching up this Madewell one. It's on sale for 20% code JUNE21

A few other things I'm loving that are included in the 20%:

I've been dying for a pair of cropped white jeans. I feel like you can never go wrong with Madewell denim.

Great time to buy a Cult Gaia Arc Clutch if you've been wanting one (i.e. me)

A great pair of high rise denim shorts. In white too!

A classic button-down shirt that goes with everything.

We're heading to Kiawah Island tonight for some outdoor music. It's one of our favorite things to do in the summer! Toy Story 4 comes out today! Theo is taking Oliver and he is SO excited! (Actually, pretty sure Theo is just as excited!)  Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
