5 On Friday

TGIF friends!!! Man I am happy that Friday is finally here! I was hoping to make it on here more this week, but little miss Reese is cutting two more teeth and she has been connected to my hip! 

 ONE // 
Last weekend we finally had our first pool day, and it was SO nice! Reese LOVED the pool and didn't want to leave, so I am thinking were going to try and make it back out there again today or tomorrow! Also, I had a few questions about her swimsuit, you can get it here, and it's only $11! 




TWO // 

Speaking of summer first, I also started and finished my first book last weekend! You guys know I am a huge fan of Colleen Hoover, and this book was no exception! It was so good and such an easy read!! 



THREE // 

Even with her cutting teeth and not feeling the best, Reese is seriously the happiest and smiliest baby EVER!! I had so many questions about this watermelon bubble when I posted this picture on instastories. It's the cutest thing ever, and you can grab it here for $12!!


FOUR //

I meant to share these earlier in the week, but here are a few of my recent looks. All of these easy toss on dresses, and perfect for summer!! 

Mini Swing Dress 

Runs tts and for reference I am wearing it in the size small. 



This is probably my favorite Lilly dress to date, and the price is SO good on this one! This one also runs tts, and I am wearing it in the size small. 




This dress is such and oldie, but such a goodie!!


FIVE // 

Possibly the best and most real quote ever!

Life Lately

 Spring/summer weather seems like it's here to stay, and that makes me so happy!! This past weekend I fixed up our out outdoor planters, and I am loving seeing all the bright pinks and reds every morning! Speaking of planters, a lot of you have asked me about ours, and we have these oversized Devon square planters that are currently on sale! But, I also found a almost identical dupe here on amazon for a lot cheaper! 


I realize that I don't mention this guy very much on here, and let me tell between him and Reese they keep me on my toes every single minute of every single day :) But they are so cute togther, and he is so sweet with her! 






// When summer weather rolls around I always like to get a few new pair of lightweight pajamas, and I am absolutely smitten with both of these! They are both super soft and I love a tank paired with full length pants! And the second pair the straps are completely adjustable! Also, they run tts and I am wearing a size small in both. I could have sized up to a medium in the first ones honestly, but I am planning on finally dropping these last 15 pounds of baby weight asap! 





// If you are looking for a super super easy dinner recipe then I can not recommend this ranch crockpot taco chicken enough!  The only thing I changed up for this original recipe is I added in one cup of fresh salsa! 


And this recipes makes so much chicken that on night two we made ranch chicken nachos with it, and they were SO good! 


// Last weekend we went over to one of our new neighbors for dinner and I made this strawberry cream cheese pie with all our fresh strawberries we picked, and it was so delicious!

Grey and White Lamp Set 

How stunning are these grey lamps! I am on the hunt for some new ones for our bedroom, because Bandit broke one of my pink ones last month :( So I am thinking of ordering these, but I can't decided between this color or the black or white ones. 

 


Short Sleeve V-Neck Swing Dress 

I love this brand of clothing for everyday basics, and you can't beat $20 for a cute toss on swing dress!

Kid Summer Fun With Free Same Day Shipping

 I knew going into spring break that we would not be traveling this year.  Todd had a lot of work to do, and with Reese being so little, we just knew it wasn't in the cards for us this year! 

I still use my Walmart+ delivery all the time, mostly for groceries and household items, but I knew with spring break and summer coming up that Walmart+ would also have some fun summer stuff for the kids!  That being said, early last week after day one of spring break and hearing my kids complain no less than 20 times that they were bored, I decided to do a little late night shopping on Walmart.com.  I made sure to go through my Walmart+ account to ensure free delivery from our store that all of my items would arrive the next day.  Walmart+ free shipping, no order minimum on items from Walmart.com (excludes oversized/freight & Marketplace items), and with next-day and two-day shipping options.

Insert below...the best Walmart+ morning delivery and instant fun for all three of our kiddos!!  The bunch of balloon wipeout water slide was their favorite with this bubble machine (I sadly forgot to snap a picture of coming in at a close second)! 










You can shop all of the items I purchased on Walmart+ below for some quick summer fun, including both of the girls adorable swimsuits!!

Thank you Walmart for partnering on this post.

This and That

//  This past weekend Todd and I took the kids strawberry picking and we all had the BEST time!! I have never seen so many huge ripe strawberries in my life! If you guys live in the Charleston area that I can not recommend Boone Hall farms enough for strawberry picking!! 


But now I've just got to decide what to make with all of the strawberries that we have, two years ago after we visited the strawberry patch I made this delicious homemade strawberry cake! But this mama does not have time for that this year, especially with my busy toddler running around ha! 



// I am thinking I may make these strawberry coffee cake muffins tonight, and do a breakfast supper for the kids! 


// A lot of you guys asked me where we ended up eating yesterday while we were in Savannah, and because my appointment took much longer than expected we had to go somewhere close to the doctors office and somewhere kind of quick! So we went to the The 5 Spot that a few of you recommended! It was mediocre at best, but this girl loved it! She had the mac and cheese, and her first sweet tea! 




I may end up having to go back in about a month, and if I do my plan is to go to The Collins Quarter!! So so many of you guys recommended this place, and the menu looks AMAZING!!!

//  The Shopbop Style Event just started, and it's truly is a great sale and one that allows to grab some of your favorite designer pieces at a discount that never go on sale!! These are my favorites below, and I kept things on the low end even before the discount, because I just can't ever seem to justify at $400 dress or $700 pair of shoes.
 


Along with the Shopbop sale Sephora also just started their beauty insider sale where you can save up to 20% off!! Sephora has all the best makeup, hair products, and tools so I know this sale can be a bit overwhelming! So I decided just to share with you guys my top 5 tried and true favorites from the sale!! 

Soft Matte Complete Concealer 

 I have tried TONS of concealers over the years and this one is still my favorite, and has been for about five years now! It gives great coverage without being to thick and without giving you creases under your eyes!


This is another product that I have used forever I would honestly say about ten years now, and I have never found any other powder that compares! I always wear medium beige in the summer, and it gives the perfect coverage without being too thick! And towards the middle to end of the summer I love to add a little of this bronzer (also on sale) with it for an added tan and glow! 



Olaplex Bond Smoother 

I swear by every product that Olaplex makes!! I use their shampoo and conditioner every time I was my hair, and then I add this after I towel dry it and right before I blow dry!! This stuff is a miracle worker if you have highlighted or damaged hair! 


Full On Plumping Lip Gloss 

Hands down my favorite lipgloss and has been for years now! It giving you a little tinkle and the perfect plumped lips! I also love that it's not sticky at all and the color is always the perfect light shade! My favorites are the April, Jessica, and Dani! 


Clinique Cheek Pop Blush 

This and my Bobbi Brown blush are my two favorites for the perfect cheek color! They both go on super smooth and give you just the right amount of color without making you look like a clown :)

Top 5 Flattering One Piece Swimsuits under $40

It was hot enough for the beach and the pool yesterday so I quickly realized I needed to grab a few new swimsuits for this year.  Baby number three and Corona did not do this mama's body good, so I've got a ways to go before I step back into any of my bikinis...ha! 

That being said, I wanted to round out my top 5 favorite one-piece swimsuits for y'all in case any of you are in the same boat as me :)  

Tummy Control Crossover Swimsuit

I have seen this swimsuit on Instagram a few times and it looks amazing on.  It also looks much more expensive than the $29 price tag!! 



Striped Ruffle One Piece Swimsuit

This may just be my favorite!  I love the blue and white stripes along with the cute ruffly details!! 



Strappy Wrap Cross Front Tummy Control Swimsuit

This reminds me of one of the La Blanca swimsuits that cost a lot more than $29!  It also has tummy control and push up padding in the top as well! 



High Waist One Piece Swimsuit with Cutout

I am in love with this one!  It comes in several different colors, but I think this pink would be so pretty with a tan!  I also love that the material has a thicker texture to it so it's not see through, along with the fact that it has removable padding depending on your needs up top! 



Ruched Tummy Control Halter Swimsuit

This style swimsuit looks great on almost every body type and I love how it's ruched in the middle to hide any extra tummy fluff :)  This one also comes in a slew of colors, and also a lot of fun prints as well!!!
