Lemon Herb Pasta Salad June and July Amazon Purchases

Good afternoon and happy hump day, y'all!  

As promised here's the recipe for the easiest and most delicious lemon herb pasta salad! This is such a great salad for summer as it will go well with any meat and it's so light and refreshing!

It's been a while since I've done a monthly round up of my Amazon purchases, so I thought I would share last month's purchases along with what all I've purchased this month as well. 

Such a great maxi!  It's perfect for summer date nights, weddings, or any summer vacation!  It runs tts, and for sizing reference, I have it in a small. 

These are some of the best looking and most comfortable wedges ever!  They are under $40 and they run tts. 

I am actually wearing this adorable little romper today!  The inside is made of the softest cotton ever.  It is so soft that I'm seriously debating on leaving it on tonight as my pajamas.

These $10 earrings are a summer must have.  They are super lightweight and go with almost every single thing in my closet. 

I have another love affair with rompers and jumpsuits this season and this one is a total winner!  It's so comfy and so easy to take on and off for restroom use ;) 

This is the most adorable little flamingo dress and the quality for the $10 price tag can't be beat! 

I am slowly converting to this brand.  This shampoo and body wash smells and lathers up just like Johnson and Johnson, plus, it comes in a six pack for $10!!!  I mean, that's the price you would pay for two bottles of any other brand! 

Okay, I am obsessed with all of the Look by Crew Cut.  The quality is just as good as the regular Crew Cuts and the prices are really good. 

The BEST overalls have now been found.  I have seriously worn these at least five times since I purchased them last month.  The fit is so good and they look cute rolled up or down like on the model.  For sizing reference, they run tts and I have them in a small. 

Umm, this adorable little smocked shortall needs no description!!  And I can't even get over the fact that it's only $14!  They also have several other styles and designs here.  I mean, is this smocked dress not the cutest thing ever for July 4th!?!? 

This thing is a life saver for all the extra grocery bags, plus, it's quite stylish so it isn't a huge eye sore on your wall. 

You guys know I swear by these white wooden bins.  I have six of them in my laundry room and they are so nice looking.  They are great for keeping everything organized. 

These charts have been so GREAT this summer to help our kiddos keep up with their chores, and much to my surprise, they have actually been doing them daily since this lovely chart arrived! 

Perfect bag for a quick trip to the pool of the beach.  The cooler at the bottom is the perfect size to throw a few drinks and sandwiches in as well.

Bathroom Organization + 2 Must Have Summer Tops Under $22

Hello friends and happy Tuesday!  I hope you are all having a great week so far!  I decided to continue my organizing yesterday and tackle our master bathroom.  If you watch my stories on Instagram and saw the before, then you'll appreciate the afters even more. 

And while my organization isn't near as fancy as the home editor or anything, it makes this mama super happy and brought a big smile to my face while getting ready this morning. 

Almost everything I used to organize this space was ordered off of Amazon and I did it on a budget. So, I am going to make sure I share the links to everything below...and happy summer organizing!!  

Hair Dryer Holder Hair Styling Product Care Tool Organizer

This is one of my favorite organization pieces to date.  It's stylish enough that if you don't have room under your sink, you can leave it on your bathroom countertop.  It also has a compartment at the bottom that you can use to store styling products, hair clips, etc.  

These mesh sliding organizers are genius for under the cabinet storage and they also work great to store medicine / medical supplies in as well! 

These clear drawers are actually made for shoes, but I also love to use them for under the sink storage. 

Round Basket  Similar here and here

These drawer dividers are perfect to use in so many different drawers throughout your home.  We use them in every single bedroom dresser to help organize and divide shirts and pants. 

I couldn't find the exact size that I have here, but this is the brand I use for almost all of my acrylic organizers.  The prices are good and the quality of these trays are amazing. 

I actually just ordered two more of these because they are on major sale for only $13!  I am hoping two more of these will help get this drawer a little more organized.

Okay, so clearly this is made to be used in the kitchen, but if any of you have a corner garden tube these shelves are genius for soap and body wash storage. 

These organizers have held up so well without sliding or coming loose.  These are great for those of you with minimal space or are just makeup obsessed like myself :) 

*** And last, here are two must have summer tops that I recently ordered off Amazon! 

Tank runs tts, and for reference, I'm wearing a small. 

Top runs small, and for reference, this is the small, but I sent this one back and reordered the medium.

10 Everday Summer Dresses Under $30

Good morning sweet friends and happy FRIDAY!!! 

When summer rolls around there is nothing I would rather wear than an easy toss on dress.  So, today I've rounded up my favorite everyday summer dresses that would look good on any and everybody. The best part, all of the dresses I found have great reviews and they are UNDER $30!!! 

This print is so fun and I love that it wraps so you can decide how fitted you want it to look. 

I am so excited that the off the shoulder trend is still in!  I ordered this dress last week and it's even better in person, plus, it's fully lined so you can't see through it!  This off the shoulder dress is another one I may have to snag! 

This is another cover-up/dress that I recently ordered and you will not believe the quality of this $21 cover-up!!  

Obsessed with this print, the style, and the $24 price tag! 

Sold on this one with pockets and polka dots!! 

Seriously, the perfect toss on cotton summer dress!

This print also comes in this adorable short swing shift dress as well for only $20! 

Another adorable stripe option, and loving the fact that this one also has pockets.  

I can never get enough of the leaf print and this lightweight terry cloth is perfect for summer. 

This one may just be my favorite!  It would look so cute dressed up with heels or dressed down with strappy sandals!

This and That

Hello friends and happy Tuesday afternoon! 

I hope you are all having a great week so far!  It's been a while since I've done a good hodge podge post, so I figured I would kick off this week with a little This and That post! 

This past weekend, Todd and I took the kiddos and our two pups to the KOA campgrounds and we seriously had the best time ever.  It was so nice to get away and truly enjoy time together out in the woods :) 

We did lots of fishing and we must have hit a a huge bed because Carson ended up catching 25 fish, while Taylor and I caught at least 15 combined!  Todd stayed busy baiting the hooks and taking fish off the hook. 

// Last night, I made this new homemade spaghetti recipe and everyone in the house LOVED it!  Personally, I prefer a good ol' jar of Preggo, but Todd and the kids all said they liked this new recipe the best.  

Also, this cast iron skillet was one of my favorite purchases from last year and it's currently on sale for $46!  I would easily compare this to the $300 Le Creuset, and I bet ya it cooks just as good ;) 

// I mentioned that I am planning on starting up my home organization again on Instastories yesterday.  This time I've decided to take it a little slower and tackle one to two rooms a week.  And since this is just a little organization revamp, I am hoping it won't be as much work this time.  I have a feeling it's probably going to be just as bad, especially with two kids and the stuff we've accumulated over the last year and a half since I organized everything.  But anyway, all of that was just to say that since you all seemed to like it so much last year, I'll plan to share my tips, tricks, and supplies I'm using to get organized again this year! 

First room accomplished this year was our mudroom // laundry room. 

Similar Large Magnetic Chalkboard (this covers our eye sore switchboard) // Moms Family Calendar // Gold Hardware (look for less here) //
