Anyway, I hope y'all had wonderful weeks and are looking forward to a fun-filled Father's Day weekend! Here are a few things I'm loving this Friday:
I have a major sweet tooth and always crave something sweet after lunch and dinner, but also don't want something that's a million calories, either. So when I found these "Gone Bananas!" dark chocolate covered banana slices at Trader Joe's, I scooped them up! At only 25 calories per piece, they're the perfect thing to satiate my sweet craving. (And yes, I know we could totally make these, but there are just some things I'll use the "Easy Button" on and this is one of them!)
When Brandon was gone last weekend, I sat in the tub and scoured the Internet for a cute, ruffled, one-shoulder one-piece bathing suit. Tall order, right?! But I knew what I wanted and of course who to the rescue but Amazon. I ordered this $19 suit thinking it might not be as cute on me as it was on the model, but it came in and I actually really like it! I would advise you to size up one size. I'm normally a small (2/4) and ordered the medium (6/8) and it was perfect. I just wish I had it for our beach trip!
We stumbled upon the "90's Summer Hits" station on Spotify this week and we are hooked! All of my 80's-born babies, these are the songs from our middle school/early high school years and we found ourselves singing along to every song!
Walker did a little STEM-based LEGO camp this week through Bricks 4 Kidz, and he really enjoyed it -- so much so that he asked to go back next year! (Which I'm totally onboard with.) He built so many cool things, did little crafts, and it was the perfect two-hour length for him to get out of the house and have some fun, and for me to run a few errands with just one child. I'd totally recommend this camp!
And meanwhile, Knox and I had some fun of our own, in addition to running errands. ;)
Our sweet realtor (who just so happens to also be our sister-in-law's mom) came by earlier this week and brought us lunch, a gift for the boys, and a housewarming gift. Our gift was this adorable sign she had made to hang outside by the pool. I thought it was so cute and so thoughtful, and it looks precious on our patio!
I've been on such an organizing kick this week after I saw my high school friend, Megan, post her Instagram stories about organizing her own house. I started with my pantry and did a little bit outside in the garage and whew, it feels so much better to have things organized! It's therapy, that's for sure.
I stupidly didn't take a "before" picture of my pantry, but here are the afters:
First picture: The bin on the top row is this one from Target; the bins on the second and fourth rows (and the one to the far right on the fifth row) are these from Target; the bins on the third row are from the Dollar Tree; and the bins on the fifth row are old from Target that I already had (similar here). I found my tiered organizers from Tuesday Morning, but these are similar.
Second picture: The Lazy Susans are these from Target; the basket with soap in it is from the Dollar Tree; and the two baskets on the bottom two shelves are old from Target that I already had (similar here).
Did anyone see how gorgeous the Duchess of Sussex looked on Thursday when she visited Cheshire with the Queen? I loved her Givenchy dress and thought she looked so at ease -- and the Queen clearly looked like she enjoyed Meghan's company. (And I love that she got to ride on the royal train before even her husband!)
