What I LOVE About Summer...
Tervis Tumblers. They keep your drinks cool or hot, depending on what you're drinking, and they have a lifetime guarantee! If your tumbler should ever break, just send it back, and they'll replace it! I found the best deal on monogrammed ones, HERE. I ordered some great pink ones, with pink lids that I love! And if you're trying to decide on which size to get, go for the 24oz. I have some of the smaller ones, but enjoy the fact that if I drink two of the 24oz size, I've had my water intake for the day...except mine is usually filled with iced coffee or lemonade.
Tomboy Style posted about these friendship bracelets yesterday, and I must say I still love them. And they're perfect for summer, especially if you're going with the neon trend. A pack of three I think is only $1. I got a couple of packs for the girls to enjoy. W saw her older cousin wearing an ankle bracelet yesterday, and asked me if she could have one. I think this may do the trick!
Speaking of jewelry, bright necklaces are also so much fun to wear in the summer. The perfect pop of color to any outfit. I'm not sure if y'all have heard of Noble House Designs. They're currently featured on Baublebar, and their necklaces are discounted here, until mid-July, just go to Shop Designers and find Noble House. I've got my eyes set on a few of them. And remember, if it's your first order, you get $10 off, and shipping is FREE!
Noble House Designs on Baublebar (Talk about spicing up your 4th of July ensemble!)Bobbi Brown Bronzing Powder in Golden Light has always been my go-to bronzer year round. There's a subtle hint of shimmer, but it's not overkill.
No Schedules! While most moms, myself included sometimes, wish their children were still in school in the summer, I actually love having them at home. I may change my mind one day when they stop their afternoon naps. But right now, I love the fact that they're too young for camps, and they'll do whatever I have planned. And we can wake up and decide what we want to do THAT day, rather than racing off somewhere, trying to get there on time. Honestly, I just love the fact that they want to be with ME. I know they'll age out of this stage one day, so I cherish this time, as much as I can.
As for the boys, I sure was right about Doug. He's sweet, but so awkward, poor thing. And the way they built up the end, I still knew John was going home. They just didn't click at all. How loco is Chris?! If the other guys are supposed to stand up for Emily, like she is always talking about them NOT doing...they better speak up and tell her how crazy he is?! I mean, I get his frustration and all, but dude, chill out.
Alright, in my opinion...Jef is too young, Arie is off (not catching his vibe, but she sure loves kissing that man), Team Sean all the way! Can't wait until she meets their families next week!!!
Speaking of, I need to make a Target run, to grab a "few" things...we all know that's impossible!
