My Top Ten Pool And Beach Essentials 2021

Collapsable Beach Wagon With Folding Table and Cup Holders 

This is the beach wagon that we ordered last year, and I can not sing it praises enough!!! It rolls so well through the sand, holds everything you could possibly need, and has a table so you can set up your lunches and snacks while on the beach! 

 Lightweight Insulated Backpack Cooler 

This looks awesome especially if you have your hands full like we do with three kiddos! And this would also be awesome to have just for picnics or camping as well. Not to mention it has over 7,000 five star reviews and it's currently on sale for $36!!  

4 Pack Stripe Towel 

These are the beach towels that I purchased about two months ago, and we are obsessed! They wash and dry so well, are super soft and big, and the kids love them way better than the microfiber ones we bough last year! 

Solimo Baby Sunscreen 

This brand has quickly become one of my favorites for a lot of our household and personal care needs! It works just a well if not better than most of the name brand items but for a fraction of the cost! 

Waterproof Washable Reusable Wet Bags 

I just ordered these to hold our wet swimsuits after we leave the beach. We usually always pack the kids an extra changing of clothes because we always go out to lunch or dinner close to the beach, and these will be perfect to toss all the wet swimsuits in! 

Instant Baby Tent With Pool 

We are planning our first beach day of the season this Saturday with all three kids. I haven't ordered this yet, because I want to see how it goes with Reese being super mobile. But I would have loved to have this last year for her, and I may even order it this year if she ends up napping on the beach. I love that it's portable, has a mosquito net, and travel bed all in one! 

Ultralight Backpack Low Beach Chair 

There are SO many things that I love about these chairs!!! They are lightweight and you can toss them on your back, They lean back and sit low to the ground which I love for the beach, they have a cup holder, and the price is great! These would also be perfect for camping, sports games, and any other outdoor event! 

Kan Jam Original Toss Game Beach and Outdoors 

This game looks SO fun, and I know Carson and Todd would have a blast playing it on the beach. And it also looks super easy to pack with just a few pieces! Added bonus it's on special right now for $29! 

Weekender Beach Bag With Zipper and Inner Pocket 

You guys know I love my blue stripe beach bag SO much, but this is another fun option if you're looking for something just a little bigger! Plus I do really love all the fun prints and designs they have available in this one too! 

Collapsable Sand Bucket With Beach Toys 

You can never have too many sand toys right?! I feel like we end up getting a new set every year because we always end up loosing pieces. I just ordered this one and it will be here on Friday, I am hoping it will keep Reese entertained! Also, the price is so good at $15 and it comes with a mesh bag to wash the toys off before you leave the beach.

Weekly Recipes

I am back with my meal planning, so I thought I would share what we have planned for dinner this week! Also, if you all follow me on Instagram sorry I have been MIA on there! My phone messed up this weekend and I am currently waiting on my replacement one to arrive. It's suppose to here today, and I can not wait! Two days without my phone has been strange to say the least, it's crazy how much we depend on phones these days to do so much! 

Oven Baked Parmesan Chicken 

I am planning on making this with zucchini noodles for Todd myself, and then I'll regular noodles for the kiddos. And I'll probably just do green beans and garlic bread with it. 

Butter Baked Haddock 

Its been a while since I've cooked fish, and this recipe looks easy and delicious! I am thinking about serving it with rice for the kids and roasted squash for Todd and I.  

Crazy Good Beef and Broccoli 

I am not sure that the kids will eat this, but I am going to give it a try anyways! I will report back and let you guys know if it was kid approved or not! 

Honey Garlic Pork Chops 

I am planning on making these with roasted potatoes and glazed carrots! Todd loves pork chops and I love that this dish only has a few ingredients and looks super easy to make!

7 On Monday

Hello friends and happy happy Monday!! I sure hope you all had a great weekend! I am currently sitting at a new cafe on Daniel Island working on this post. And while it was hard to leave my little bean this morning, she was so happy playing with her new sitter, and I can already tell these few hours are going to be just what I need. 

So here we go kicking off Monday with with some good things I am currently loving! 

Cat Eye Polarized Sunglasses 

This brand has quickly become one of my favorites for sunglasses! The prices are so affordable and the fit and quality have been amazing on every pair I've ordered! These are only $20 and they come in so many different color combos. 

Eliza J Twist Front Maxi Dress 

I absolutely LOVE all of Eliza J maxi dresses, and this one looks like the perfect toss on summer dress that can be dressed up or down! Also, the price point on this one is SO good! 

 Madewell Broken In Baseball Cap 

I always get asked about my baseball caps on Instagram, and Madewell makes two of my favorite ones! I have a smaller head, and these fit like a glove. And I am really loving this simple light tan one for summer, and I think it will go well with almost every look. 

These garden boxes are almost identical to the ones we have in our backyard, and I can't tell you how much we LOVE ours! And these have amazing reviews and they are priced SO well! 

We are thinking about taking the kids camping soon before it get too hot, and both myself and Taylor need sleeping bags. So after researching lots of different ones, these are the ones I think I am going to order! The price is so good and they are not only waterproof but also breathable too. 

I miss our jute rug in our living room, and I am thinking about ordering this one to replace our current one. It's on special today, and you can't beat the price for 9 x 12 rug. 

So we usually end up buying one of these every few years for the kids, and they LOVE them. I feel like you really only get about two years out of these before they need replacing, but they are still worth it. And this one is actually very reasonably priced, and you can get it with or without the blower, and since we already have a blower, that takes another $100 off!

The Best Lululemon Dupes Part 1

 Muscle Tank 

This tank is really really close to the all yours tank ! The only difference besides the $52 price tag verses the $12 price tag is the dupe isn't as wide and boxy on the sides. 

Active Running Shorts 

These $24 shorts are almost identical to the $58 tracker shorts. The only difference is these have a drop pocket instead of a zip pocket on the side. 

Nearly Naked Full Length Yoga Leggings 

These $44 leggings are an EXACT dupe for the $128 Align leggings. I know this for a fact because I own both, and these dupes have actually held up better in the washing machine and dryer! 

Longline Yoga Bra Tank 

Okay, so I actually found two tanks that are almost identical to the $58 Align Tank. There is this one below that has slightly wider straps and there's also this one with more a v-neck like the Align tank. 

Cropped Muscle Tank 

This $16 cropped muscle tank (which is on major sale right now it's normally $39) is another exact dupe of the $44 all yours crop tank. The only difference that I can see is that the dupe may be just a touch longer and not as wide under the armpits. 

High Waist Workout Shorts With Zip Pocket 

Okay so these are most like the high-rise speed short 2.5, but they are a bit longer at 4" like the mid rise speed up short.  So in my opinion you get the best of both worlds with these dupes... a little bit higher waist and a little longer length.

April Amazon Purchases

 I feel like I am always late with these post, but finding the time to write a post with a teething baby is proving to much harder than I thought :) I am hoping when summer gets here that I can talk Carson and Taylor into "helping mommy" with Reese some so that I am able to get on here a bit more consistently...but that may also just be wishful thinking as well ha! 

Off The Shoulder Swing Ruffle Dress 

So many good things to say about this dress! The fit is perfect and it doesn't slide off of your shoulders, it's double lined so you can't see through it at all, and fabric is so lightweight and perfect for summer! Added bonus it's only $26! 

Suave Kids 3-1 Shampoo/Conditioner/Body Wash 

This stuff smells amazing, and my kids love it too! Carson has sensitive skin and this stuff doesn't bother his skin or scalp at all. 

This is the little set that we got Reese last month, and she plays with it pretty much daily. Plus the little watering can is super and works great with no leaking. 

This is hand down the nest razor I have ever used, and the price is phenomenal! 

Ultra Lightweight Polarized Sunglasses  

I ordered these sunglasses for Todd earlier last month, and I LOVE them on him. They look and feel like designer sunglasses but they are only $14!!!

Todd swears by these no-show socks, and he tried quite a few different ones! I personally don't like these for me because they come up too high, but then again I wear a size 6.5 in shoes. These are my favorite no-show socks for myself! 

Amazon Brand Core 10 2-1 Run Shorts With Built In Compression 

These shorts are AMAZING and so so comfy you guys!! I just ordered another pair in full black color! Also, they run pretty tts, and I have them in the medium!

The Fisherman Portable Folded Fisherman Net 

We have been using this net to take down to the pier and we have caught so many baby shrimp in it, and a few smaller crabs. It's such a great net and it's easy to fold up and put away too. 

Pokemon Party Supplies 

We are having Taylor a little party this weekend, and she's currently obsessed with Pokemon, so I ordered her this set, and it's actually really nicely made and super cute.

Seven On Tuesday

Good morning friends and happy Tuesday! Yesterday was a busy one and I never got around to getting my seven on Monday up! So here's my current top seven favorites!

Tropic Strappy Midi Dress 

I am obsessed with these colors and this print, and y'all know always love a good maxi! Also this print also comes in this stunning maxi skirt, and it's currently 40% off! 

Monogram Mini Tote 

Does this bag not totally look like a designer bag, it's seriously the perfect dupe! It's also available here as well, because I am pretty sure Nordstrom will sell out fast! 

Caslon Eyelet Blouse 

I love that underneath this gorgeous blouse it's a comfy tee material. White eyelet is one of my favorites and this would look so cute paired with these cuff jeans shorts!   

 Striped Short Sleeve T-Shirt Dress 

Stripes, pockets, and only $36... yes please!

Beach Leaf Halter Maxi Dress 

This maxi is from the new Loft beach collection, and while you could definitely wear it as coverup, it seems sturdy enough to wear out and I loving the print. 

White Embroidered Ruffle Dress 

I know, I know another maxi! But this one is just way too pretty not share! And can y'all believe that it's under $50!!

Last but not least, my most beloved pajamas EVER just came out with three new prints, and I am in love with floral one!
