5 on Friday

Cheers to Friday, y'all! 

ONE // 

I finally caved this week and bought a new kitchen runner.  I LOVED our old one, but while potty training our two pups it took quite a few accidents and no matter how many times I cleaned it, it still looked dirty and smelled bad.  That being said, when I spotted this beauty (it's made by the same brand nuLOOM rugs) on sale for $45 I knew I had to snag it! 



I am loving how the bright colors really liven up the space! 


TWO // 

This isn't the prettiest picture ever, but hey, it's real life cooking dinner, especially with kids running all around your house ;)  And not only was it a huge hit with the kids, but Todd and I loved it as well. I've made stuffed shells many times in the past, but it had been so long that I almost forgot how to make them.  I turned to trusty ol' Pinterest and I followed this recipe (found here) and it did not disappoint! 



THREE // 

I still can't get over the fact that I snagged all four of these outdoor pillow covers for $18!  You guys, the quality of these cases are amazing and the prints are so gorgeous and vibrant. 



FOUR // 

Here's an Amazon fashion find that's an oldie but a goodie!  This dress is probably one of my most worn Amazon purchases to date.  I love everything about it, plus, it's fully lined so you can't see through it at all!  And best part...it's on sale right now for $31! 


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


Speaking of Amazon, the beauties below are all arriving today just in time for our beach trip we leave for tomorrow!  I'll be sure a do a quick try-on session this afternoon.

July 4th Party Food, Games, and Attire

Happy Hump Day, friends!! 

I can't believe that the 4th of July is just a little over a week away!  On Saturday, we are heading out for our beach vacation with my side of the family and we are all so excited! 

Todd and I are in charge of dinner one night and I think were going to do Mexican, but I thought a few of these desserts would be fun and festive to make with the kids. 








How fun are these cups, plates, and napkins!?  I just ordered them for our beach trip and you seriously can't beat the $17 price tag for all of this. 

// I called my brother yesterday and told him that Todd and I would bring the games.  The deal is that everyone plays and the losers have to do the dishes and pack up all the beach stuff at the end of the day.  So far, these are the games I've ordered, but if you guys know of any other fun games please send them my way!  Oh yeah, and this charade game isn't 4th of July themed, but it looks like so much fun for the entire family! 









And last, but not least, here are my outfit favorites that are perfect for the 4th and any other time of the year!! 


This dress is the cutest and it comes in over 18 different colors, plus, you can't beat the $23 price tag! 


I love this polka dot midi dress, and I also love this polka dot mini dress as well.

This dress is such a great summer staple and it is perfect for a more laid back July 4th look. 



This swimsuit has amazing reviews and it is such a flattering style for every body type.  And with it being under $30, it may be one that I need to snag in more than one color.

This and That

Hello friends and happy Monday afternoon...I hope you all had a wonderful weekend! 

We had a really laid back weekend around here.  On Friday afternoon, we went to see Toy Story 4 and I highly recommend you go see it!  It seriously may have been the best Toy Story yet, and that's saying a lot because they have all been great in my opinion. 



// On Saturday, we hit up the neighborhood pool and I was finally able to finish my book, Verity. Omg it was crazy, but so so good...it is a definite summer read! 



// On Sunday, we went to church and then headed to lunch at Cracker Barrel.  And yes, I must admit I LOVE me some Cracker Barrel and I sometimes dream about their biscuits and white gravy...ha! 



// We watched a Sunday afternoon movie with our growing pups!!  These guys are so much fun, but man they give us a run for the money!  My house has never been so messy, and I've never cleaned up so much tee tee in my life...haha!  Either way, they are so stinking sweet that I can't ever stay mad at them. 




I just ordered these pajamas for Taylor last week and omg they are the cutest ever.  And y'all, the quality of this brand is so so good!  Warning though, they run really big.  I ordered Taylor the size 8 thinking she would have a little room to grow, but they are huge!  My plan is to put these up for next summer and order her this moon and star print in the size 6-7. 




I added a lot of new basic summer pieces to my summer favorites in my Amazon shop (you can check that out here).  This $14 white tank was one of my favorite finds! 


I have been such a lazy cook so far this summer so when I ran across this on Pinterest I knew I had to share!  These fish tacos and chickpea salad look so good and they look super easy to make!  So, if you are feeling unmotivated like myself, I would definitely check out these 30 lazy summer dinner ideas! 



// And last, but not least, I wanted to share this quote with you guys.  It popped up on my Pinterest account this morning and it really spoke to me, so I am hoping that it will do the same for some of you as well!

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.
