Hi guys! I’m so glad you liked my Meal Prep post
! Especially with summer around, I find that it’s best to have things on hand to throw meals together quickly and if they help our waistline, even better! I did a snapchat video on it yesterday so you could see how quick it is to cook the chicken and TexMex ground beef. The video isn’t particularly pretty, but I cared more about just sharing the info with you! We are going to do more Blue Apron meals to mix it up, so I’ll share our next one with you when I get it.
I feel like I just barely starting to get into a summer groove, and for me, when I take some time in the morning to put myself together, I feel better all day. Especially a little bit of makeup. It literally takes just a few minutes, but it makes me look so much more awake and ready to face the day. I usually do this when Jordan goes down for her morning nap, but if she’s awake, I just put her in a little portable chair and have her with me while I get ready.
It’s easiest for me to just throw on jean shorts
(which I probably wear too often and is why I wanted more shorts like this), but if we’re going out, I try to put on something cuter. It just makes me feel better! And this might sound silly, but I want to look nice for my kids too! I’m always embarrassed (for me and my son) when I pull up in the school drop off line in my pjs and bed head, but that does happen too! Sometimes he’ll ask, “why don’t you walk me in today?” “Because I’m in my pajamas!”
But, let’s focus on the times I actually did manage to put on real clothes! This top below is a fave because it looks dressy, but is so lightweight. It looks great with white jeans and shorts.

I’m obviously a fan of horizontal stripes! I really liked this outfit, was cute for running around in a couple weekends ago. I always have flat shoes in the car just in case I want to change out of my wedges.

I wore this outfit below to go get my hair done- it came out so blonde – I kinda feel like too blonde. She normally adds lowlights and this time did all highlights, so I’ll definitely be adding in some darker color next time. Oh well, it is summer! These jeans are a new fave distressed pair. I had about 4 inches cut off so I could wear them ankle length. #shorty! I’m crazy for the v-neck and long length of this top.

Pineapples just say summer, right?! The jeans I’m wearing are the SUPER soft ones I’ve been raving about. And they are on $41 now. Seriously, if you get them, let me know how you like them! I bet you’ll love them too.
I’ve been seeing this asymmetrical cardigan wrap
at Nordstrom for years with about a million positive reviews, but I only just now got one for myself. It’s awesome! This one is lightweight and so, so cozy. I like it for home just as well as out of the house. It comes in 6 colors too, so lots to choose from.
This “peace” tank
is cute! Perfect for upcoming 4th of July! Have you made plans yet?! Nothing here so far.
We got Mother/Daughter festive for Memorial Day this year. She’s the cutest! But this maxi skirt made me feel 6 feet tall. Now I want all the colors!

This striped tee was one of my Loft finds
. Was cute with these tie-front shorts and will go with a million other things.
Got to spend some time with my Mom last Sunday, love that woman so much! #keeper She snapped this pic with my iPhone.
Yesterday, we had a picnic at the park and I put Jordan in this swimsuit and hat. I was afraid she’d outgrow it before she even had a chance to wear it! It barely fit that adorable squishy body! I know I’m biased, but she is the cutest.thing.ever!!
James’ last week of kindergarten celebrations called for dresses. It was an effort to dress up for these events, but I’m glad I did. He’ll only graduate kindergarten once!
So that’s all I’ve got for today! In the meantime, you can see what we’re up to on Snapchat and Instagram
(@honeywerehome). I hope your summer is off to a great start!
keep in touch!
