Our first week of summer vacation got off to a great start, despite the rain. How is yours going?? We took advantage of an hour break in the rain for a swim at the pool, and hopefully next week we'll get in more pool time! #myfave I've been sharing video snippets on Snapchat (@honeywerehome), have you seen?! I'm still getting used to it, but so far it's not nearly as intimidating as I thought it would be. Makes me feel like I could've gotten on the bandwagon sooner! Are you on snapchat? The only thing I don't like is that you can't comment so there's not the same interaction like on Instagram. Is there a way to connect more that I haven't figured out yet?
For the rest of our summer, I found two things that James wants to do (yay!!)- a 3-hour basketball camp and a 45-minute tennis camp that he can go to to burn off some of that energy that only a six-year old has! It takes mom a couple cups of coffee to keep up!
I mentioned before how helpful your suggestions for summer with two kids was and I mean it! Several of you mentioned getting an older 'buddy' to play with James and I think that's a great idea. And Lauren mentioned some tips for 'at home camp' that I've been looking into. As for the weekends, I LOVE what Abbie M. recommended on this parent appreciation post - taking turns with Dad each weekend day where one person is fully in charge from wakeup until noon! That's so good because sometimes an hour or two just doesn't cut it! Thank you so much!!
This is the last weekend of the big Nordstrom Half-Yearly Sale (up to 40% off!), so I went back online to see what good stuff they had left and picked my Top 10 favorites for you below. But then I think I ended up with 13. ;) You can see ALL my picks here. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
$49, $29.40 (3 colors)
I have this top in light blue and the faux layer gives that extra interest without any bulk underneath.
tee (also in grey)
Everyone needs a simple white casual tee and the burnout style, scoop neck, and pocket are great on this one. Here's the tank version
embroidered trim tank
You gotta see the cute back on this one!
You gotta see the cute back on this one!
laser cut tank $34.50 price matched
Ooh, these scallops are so cute!
long cardi (also in black)
This lightweight cardi is perfect for keeping at the office or carrying to restaurants/movie theaters for when it gets chilly. The contrasting collar is super cute.
Zella Z6 tee
$32, $15.90 (6 colors)
Gotta scoop this awesome workout top while it's at such a great price. I gave 3 of my best girlfriends this top for Christmas and they all loved it.
Vince Camuto ankle strap (14 colors)
, $97.95, $79.90
These strappy sandals are like the goldilocks of high heels, not too high and not too low. They are a classic style that goes with all your skirts and dresses and you can wear them with pants easily because the back is closed (no stepping on your pants!).
Jessica Simpson Mekos sandal
$79.95, $47.96 (also in nude and gold)
The cutouts on this heel make it super sexy!
Halogen studded pumps
Adore these! The flat ones are on sale too, 20% and come in 8 colors.
Tory Burch wedge flip flops
Sam Edelman flip flops
I call these my "pedicure flips flips" because they are what I usually wear when I go get my nails done. No one wants to mess up their pedicure! I have the gold, but they come in 10 colors. 'Soft nude' looks pretty!
Ray-Ban High Street 54mm sunglasses
Tory Burch Ella Tote
Yes, please! The pattern on this tote is the coolest.
I got an email saying the swimsuits I ordered from Victoria's Secret have shipped! #happydance The one-piece wasn't supposed to ship until July, so I'm excited to get it and see how it fits- I'll let you know.
Come back on Monday because I'm breaking it all down and showing you how I prep our meals for the week. It doesn't take that long and makes the week so much better having food on hand ready to go!
Below are some sales worth checking out this weekend!
