Cupcakes With The Girls

It is no secret that I'm a huge fan of Walmart+ around here, as are my kids (mainly because of their awesome snack and toy section...haha).  Now that summer is in full swing, I know without a doubt that I am going to be using it non-stop! 

I am not sure how long most of you have been reading here, but if it's been a while then you probably know I LOVE to bake in the kitchen, especially with the kids.  To kick off summer and also keep the kids off their phones and video games, I decided that is just what we would do.  And seriously, if y'all haven't checked out the bakery section at Walmart+ then you're truly missing out!  And of course they have one of the best selections of cake mixes and icing, but the real treat at Walmart+ is all their fun baking / decorating accessories like these adorable cupcakes liners and these neon and metallic sprinkles! 

And just in case you guys haven't heard me talk about Walmart+ before then let me fill you in.  I know a lot of people think Walmart+ is just a service where you can get groceries delivered to your door the same day or next day delivery, but you can actually get almost anything they sell in Walmart delivered for free ($35 minimum, restrictions apply) straight to your doorstep within days or hours depending on what you need and how fast you need it.  For example, besides all of the baking supplies I ordered yesterday, I also ordered Taylor this dress, Reese this adorable bubble, and a last minute birthday gift!  So, unlike a lot of other grocery delivery services you are able to do all your shopping in one place, and I must mention that they have really stepped up their game when it comes to fashion and home decor! 

*Thank you Walmart for partnering on this post.

Summer Living Room Refresh

It's crazy how changing up your throw pillows, decluttering with new organizational storage, and adding a fresh candle can totally transform a room and make it feel so different.  I know I've mentioned that Walmart has stepped up their fashion game, but you guys, Walmart's home section is truly KILLING it!  And I'm not just talking the furniture, because you guys know I've been a fan of that for many years (Carson and Reese's dressers are from there), but their decor section has truly blown me away and I promise you the quality has as well. 

I wish you all could reach through the screen and touch these pillows to truly feel what I'm talking about when I mention the quality because it really is that good.  Later today, I am going to make sure I show you all on Instastories so you can get a better look at the amazing details! 

These storage baskets are only $34 for both...yeah, you read that right!  These may be my new favorite! Not only are they pleasing to look at, but they are also super sturdy and hold so much stuff! 

This new candle smells exactly like the name...warm spring summer.  I let it burn all day yesterday and it made our entire house smell amazing.  It wasn't too strong, but just a light summer smell, which is exactly what I'd been searching for. 

You all probably know by now that I'm a neutral girl when it comes to most home decor in my house, but if you love color, all of these pillows come in several different colors / patterns.  Just another thing I am loving about Walmart and their fabulous home section

You can shop all of my items below! 
(Just click on the photo of the item you woud like to shop)

Speaking of color and home refresh updates, I did tell Todd one place I do want to add some color is in the girls bathroom.  I am thinking this fun shower curtain would be PERFECT for their shared space, along with this fresh squeezed lemon bath mat

The Best Early Prime Day Deals

Okay you guys, one of the best days of the year is almost here... Amazon Prime Day officially starts on Monday morning!! 

But this year they have released some of the best deals a few day early!! And they will be adding a lot more over the weekend, and I'll be updating this post with all the good ones as soon as they're added. 

nuLoom Paisley Rug 

I love this brand of rugs, and I can not get over the prime day deals on so many of these!! 

Fire TV Stick 4K 

Kindle Paperwhite Waterproof 

 Large Air Fryer and Dehydrator 

This is such a great deal, especially on this particular air fryer. Not only is it an air fryer and dehydrator, it can also be used as a rotisserie oven and and oiless pressure cooker. 

If you're in the market for a new tv, now is the time to snag one!! I have never seen a Toshiba this size for this cheap! Also, the reviews are great and it the setup is super easy because all the apps are already built into the tv. 

iRobot Roomba i3+

I know you guys have heard me talk about my love for my Roomba 1,000 times!! But I would be lying if I said I didn't want to upgrade to this one. I've had mine now for about five years, and while it still works good, I would love to have one that is quieter, self empties, that had the wifi for mapping the locations I wanted it to go. 

600 Thread Count Egyptian Cotton Sheets 

I have a feeling that these sheets are going to sell out pretty quickly with being almost 40% off their original price! And I love this soft and silky feeling sateen for the summer months! 

Mae Women's Contour Underwire Bra 

Whoop whoop, I am officially done breastfeeding!! I did this a lot longer than I had originally planned, and without going into too much detail, I'll just say they look a lot different than they once did. So I decided to snag this bra while it's on major sale. This brand has never let me down, and according to the reviews it gives you a great lift and hides and covers any back or side fat!! 

Daily Ritual Jersey Maxi Dress 

Favorite brand for easy toss on pieces that don't break the bank, wash and dry well, and that are comfy while still being super cute! 

Core 10 Women's Build Your Own Leggings 

I own about 6 pair of leggings from this brand, so I can tell you guys without a doubt they are amazing! And I am so happy that the build you own leggings are the ones on sale, this way you can pick out what fits you best and gives you exactly what you want in a legging.

I am heading to HHI with a bunch of my high school girlfriends, and I can not wait!!! The weather looks like it's going to be amazing, so I am hoping to spend lots of time on the beach and by the pool! 

And speaking of time by the beach and the pool, I've had a few request to share with you guys some figuring flattering aka slimming swimsuits, so I've rounded up a few that I am loving along with a few of my current favorite cover-ups! 

La Blanca Mio High Neck One Piece 

You guys know I feel about this brand, they make the most amazing swimsuits ever! And I am loving this neckline on this one, and the gorgeous bright pink color! Also, everyones favorite La Blanca bandeau swimsuit is on sale in lots of different colors here!! 

This coverup will be arriving at my doorstep at some point today, and I am hoping it's as cute on as it looks on this model! Stay tuned as I'll be sharing try-on details later today on stories! 

This is another we suit that will also be arriving today!! It has great reviews, the price is amazing, and I am loving the fun print!! 

Loft Beach Floral Twist Plunge One Piece 

Have you check the beach arrivals at Loft, I mean they are SO SO good!! I love that you can wear this suit with the straps or a bandeau, and the ruching in the middle is perfect for hiding any tummy problems you may have. And this cover-up would look so adorable with this suit and many other ones too! Added bonus is right now Loft is offering 50% off your order with the code SURPRISE!! 

Bikini Coverup Casual Dress 

The quality of this picture isn't the best but I am loving the style of this one, and the under $20 price tag!! 

Malai Spotted Bikini Top  // Malai Spotted Bikini Bottoms 

Love every single about this suit, especially the colors and the print! And these high waist bottoms are super flattering.  

Ruffle Beach Tunic Coverup 

This adorable coverup comes in so many fun colors, and I love that it covers enough that you could also wear it as a dress, or over your swimsuit to go enjoy lunch after a day at the beach! 

 Front Cross One Piece Tummy Control Swimsuit 

This suit is perfection, and the stripe top draws the attention up there and away from your stomach, and for me that's a total win!!!

Weekly Recipes

 Coming at you guys late on a Tuesday with this weeks meal plans! And I actually made the greek chicken meatballs last night for dinner, and oh my goodness they were amazing you guys!! It was my first time ever making chicken meatballs, but it definitely won't be my last! 

I am planning on making these tonight for Todd and I, and I'll just do regular soft shell tacos for the kiddos! 

Feta Jalapeno Turkey Burgers 

I am really trying to eat cleaner right now for many reasons, with weight loss being a big one! So I'll plan to eat my burger wrapped in lettuce instead of a bun, and I am going to roast sweet potatoes as the side. For the kids I'll leave the jalapeno out of their burgers, and toss some frozen fries in our air fryer for them! 

Greek Chicken Meatballs In Lemon Cream Sauce

Again these were amazing!!! And for a side dish I served them over rice pilaf, and cut up apples for the kiddos!

5 On Friday

 ONE // 

Carson played in his last baseball game on Wednesday night, and they finished up the season undefeated!!! This year was by far the best year ever watching him play, all the boys on his team were amazing ball players! 

TWO // 

Last night I attended a soft opening event for a new restaurant that just opened up here on Daniel Island called New Realm. They took over what used to be Dockerys, which we really liked, but I am excited for something new! From what I hear they have the BEST mac and cheese ever, so that will be the first thing I order when we take the family there for dinner or lunch next week! 

These fruity pebble shots were delicious!! 

Here's a peek at this weeks outfits... 

This dress is SO soft and comfy!! For sizing reference it does run big, so size down. I am wearing it the xs and still have lots of room in it. 

Dress runs tts and for sizing reference I am wearing it in the small. 

FOUR // 

I seriously can not get over how wonderful our garden is doing this year! The strawberries and blueberries have been the kids favorite, and I come out here with Reese every morning to see what's ready to pick! Also, our garden boxes are from Grandinroad but they are sadly sold out. But I did find almost identical ones here for much cheaper!! 

FIVE // 

And last,  I leave this message to all of my sensitive soul sister out there!
