Five Favorites Right Now:


I bought this bag and have gotten so many compliments on it.  I originally wanted the white one, but I know myself and my six grubby handed kids ;)  
It's the perfect size and great for summer, and there's tons of patterns available!  Plus it's only $17.70 and you know you can get a coupon to bring that price down even more!


I needed some summer friendly (read: wet/dry) easy on and easy off shoes for our resident toddler who is picky about what goes on his chubby little feet.  Finally found these Natives and I'm sold.  

They are pricey, but I have the benefit of being able to pass them down to Declan in a few years.  Plus, they were a little roomier than I expected so they should fit Xander for 2 summers.  


I'm a Jamberry lover, but sometimes I give my jams a break and paint my nails with my favorite nail polish I've found.  It applies so easy and with two coats, it actually holds up for longer than anything else I've tried.  Highly recommended.


How about an easy summer recipe that requires no thawing, no cooking over heat, and no prep?  We'll do this one like an equation (math nerd alert)

Frozen chicken breasts + Jar of salsa x 8 hours on low in crockpot = Shredded Mexican Chicken

Great for tacos, enchiladas, salads, nachos, sandwiches, whatever your hungry little tummy desires :)


Walmart has never failed to disappoint with their Catalina Suddenly Slim swimsuits

 I have two, and trust my postpartum^6 belly - they work! So cute, so retro, so modest.  Plus $25 is a great price.  I'm not a Walmart lover (the stores here give me the heebie jeebies) but you can order online and avoid the heebies and the jeebies.

And that's all I've got for today, go see Jenna for more :)


  1. I just bought a swimsuit on Sunday! This one is much cuter though, so I'll have to splurge and go check them out.

  2. Love the swimsuit! Definitely going to order one. And the Wal mart's here give me the heebie jeebies so I'll take your tip and order mine online :)

  3. 1, 2, 3, 4, AND 5! I love them all! I always mean to get that swim suit and never do. I just bought a tankini/shorts combo that I like, but having 2 suits would be helpful.

  4. We found Natives last summer and I bought another pair this year because I love them so much. They're cute, they're easy to clean and to put on--winner!! We do taco Tuesday (which really means fake Mexican Tuesday aka fajitas, enchildadas, tacos etc.) I'm thinking that I will have to add that chicken to the mix soon!

  5. I bought some SUPER cheap nail polish for a business trip I just went on... TERRIBlE idea. Best to drop an extra dollar or two for a better brand for sure.

  6. I love your faves, I am going to order a swimsuit and I can't wait to use your crockpot recipe!

  7. That bag and swimsuit! Thanks for sharing. Those are such great finds :)

  8. Ha-love that suit but love the heebie jeebies comment more-that is the best way to describe what I feel about shopping at our Walmart too.

  9. The primes (cousins) wear those shoes and jessie swears by them! And I would be upset if you carried a bag without anchors! ;)
