Friday: First One for June

It's Friday, and you know what that means: time to link up with April, Amanda, Andrea and Katie for all of the Friday goodness. 

It's swimsuit season and let's just say that all that Mexican food {and wine, cough cough} I've been enjoying lately has caught up with me. But let's be honest: I've birthed two babies and things just aren't what they used to be, and I need to cover up just a bit more these days. But even though I want/need to cover up, I still want to look cute while still being in a swimsuit that is functional for chasing after two wild little boys. 

After searching high and low, I finally found this swimsuit on Amazon of all places. It's the Cupshe brand, which I hadn't heard of before my intense searching, and now I'm in love! Even Brandon likes this suit on me, so I'm officially sold on this brand. {And I may or may not have taken advantage of Memorial Day sales and purchased this one from Cupshe's website and this one from Target in both the floral and black and white. Whoops!} 

Since I'm trying to eat a little better, I made these grilled chicken, zucchini and red onion kebabs on Wednesday night and they were so good! {Thank you, Pinterest!} I served them with a side of steamed broccoli and we decided it's definitely going to be added to the rotation. 

I meant to share this after Knox's birthday, but I completely forgot. One of my favorite traditions I do with my boys is read them "On the Night You Were Born" the night of their birthday every year. I bawl every single time I read it, and seriously I can't read it more often than once a year or I'd be an emotional wreck. It's such a sweet story and something I hope they'll still let me read to them when they're big, burly teenagers. ;)

I'm thinking about doing the BurgaBox for Brandon for Father's Day since he's so hard to shop for and loves gifts that are a bit "outside the box." Has anyone reading here tried BurgaBox? If so, what did you think? Which burger would you recommend? 

I haven't bitten the bullet yet and purchased it, but I have been eyeing this dress so much lately! It's just adorable and I think would be perfect for our family beach trip later this summer. All the heart eyes for the one-shoulder and eyelet lace! 

I hope y'all have wonderful weekends! 


  1. that suit is so cute! I love that book and actually just read it to Graham last night. It's so sweet and one that I love to give to new mamas! You def need that white dress, its darling and will look so good on you, and a great beach trip staple!

  2. I'm loving your new bathing suit - looks so cute and I love the scalloped detailing!! Hope you have a great weekend girl! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. I have that same Cupshe bathing suit and I couldn't love it any more!! I love that you read "On the Night You were Born" on your boys' birthdays! That is such a special book! Have a great weekend!

  4. Okay I teared up just seeing that darn book. All of her books are tear jerkers. I love that swimsuit-I have my first 'mom suit' coming in the mail any day!

  5. I love that bathing suit and who doesn't love scallops. I love the BurgaBox idea for a gift. Also, go for that dress. It's perfect for the summer. Jess at Just Jess

  6. Very cute bathing suit! I'm covering up more this year and I just have myself to blame it on ;) If I look like you after two kids, I think I'll live in bikinis! Those chicken kebabs look delicious! We're trying to add more grilling and low carb recipes to our rotation this summer to get healthier too so send me any recipes you love!

  7. I love that suit! I'm so thankful that one-pieces are becoming so trendy - makes me more likely to go for that second margarita if I know my belly pooch will be hidden - haha! Also there are just so many different styles out now! Also I am loving that white dress. It would be beautiful for summer.

  8. LOVE all your new swimsuits!!! I might need to look into Cupshe but buying swim suits online always makes me so nervous... I believe Christina at Carolina Charm has done a few posts on the burger box (could've been a different one though). Have a great weekend!

  9. Love the suit, did you find it fit true to size? I'm torn between two sizes because some reviews I read about the one pieces were that they creeped up in the bottoms...eek! I bought a pair of the high waisted bottoms and love them but was afraid of the one piece. Love the dress!

  10. I have 2 swimsuits from Cupshe and I'm obsessed now!! You cannot beat the price! Those Target one pieces are adorable. Do they cover your butt enough? Because let's be honest I've got a lot that needs to be covered haha

  11. That swimsuit is so cute! I need a few new ones for the summer so I will have to check out that brand! I've never tried Burga Box but it sounds like a great idea!

  12. Those Kabobs look delicious!!!! I definitely need to make some soon!
