Happy Friday y'all! Welcome to the almost weekend and a holiday weekend to boot! Ready for a couple days off of work and to get out of town. This weekend we are headed to the cabin for a weekend with family. It looks like it might actually be kind of chilly so maybe not a weekend for shorts and tanks, but it's Minnesota so who knows?

Beauty Must Haves for Moms

Counting down the days until school starts up yet? I know I am and Reese isn't even in school yet. I do work at a school so I am excited for the building to come alive again with staff and students. Looking forward to a new year. 

It also means for parents like us, a different and more rushed morning. It's important to me to maintain a sense of feeling put together even if my routine has changed. I have found a few great items that are critical in being able to do this and wanted to share with the other mamas out there!

Back to School: Kids Clothes

Happy last Monday of summer break! Working in a school I still follow the ol' school schedule. I do work all summer, but it's a different speed. So this feels like the last week of summer to me. For those of you with kids it means that too. I am sure this week is full of a swing of emotions from excited, anxious, maybe a bit frustrated the summer has almost come to an end. This week I have a few 'back to school' type posts planned.

TGIF I am ready for this weekend. It's the second the last weekend of summer and I am looking forward to a weekend where I can take some advantage of our last days of warmth. I don't have any solid plans this weekend but maybe getting on the boat? Or hanging out with friends? What are your plans?

Happy Monday! Hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was pretty good and I cannot complain. Definitely a chill summer weekend. We only have a couple more of these so we got to take advantage. I got in some chill movie time, hit up a baseball game (we lost, boo!) and ran some Sunday errands with my mini-me. Not bad if I say so myself!

Cheers to the freakin' weekend! I am ready for this weekend. Only a couple weeks left of summer before school starts back up and it starts to feel like Fall. I have a weekend plan for both some fun activities but also some much-needed downtime. The best kind of weekend. Do you have anything fun planned?

I took a little Instagram poll (those are so cool, right?) and some people wanting to see some of my current favorites. So, I scoured some of my favorite places to collect both styles I already have and love and some styles I have been meaning to add to my wardrobe! Here it is :)

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend! I turned off from social media for a little bit to enjoy a long weekend away. The weather was gorgeous and hot so perfect for a little getaway. It was also a great opportunity to rock some of my casual pieces (details below!)

Happy Friday! I am so ready for this week. I think I say that every week, but I extra mean that this week. We are headed out of town for a fun weekend with friends at my husband's family cabin. We did this last summer but we were down a few folks, so we grabbed a few more and are headed up this afternoon. I took a half day of work, because why the heck not, and we're dropping the miss off at my parents then we're off! That said I have limited wifi access because we are literally almost in Canada (the lake we will be boating on is both in America and Canada) so I will try to post when I can but it will be limited. Also, I just plan to enjoy myself. This is actually my first time up there this summer so I am plain pumped for that too! What are you up to this weekend? Hope you get to enjoy a few days off of work!

I am always on the lookout for new beauty products. It is kind of an obsession. I don't know what it is, but I always feel like I am on the hunt for a new color or product to try. It's one of the reasons I love Influenster. I get to try out new products and give my opinion. I have definitely discovered some great products and I always get excited when it shows up. This time I got to try three new products from The Honest Company, Jessica Alba's clean conscious company has branched into beauty.

Happy Tuesday! Hope you all had a great weekend. I had a fairly relaxing/albeit a little slow weekend. D was out of town, up at his family cabin doing some work so Reese and I stayed home. The weather was kind of so-so, so we didn't have much to do.

Summer Family Outings + Button Tanks

Welcome to Friday! Who is ready for the freakin' weekend? This gal! It is officially the last month of what most would consider summer time and I want to make the most of it. Who's with me? Hoping to have some sunny afternoons again to play with my little miss and spend some time with the family. What are you up to?

On my Monday post this week I mentioned that I had a very busy weekend. We literally had plans every day. It was really fun, but kind of tiring. Instead of making Monday's post unbearably long I thought I would break it up. The first part of my weekend, the brewery tour, deserved it's own posting. The rest of my weekend was very family, kid-centric. Kind of a different vibe, haha.


Summer Sweater

As I have said before this summer overall has been a really hot one. We have barely gotten to open our windows and going outside has basically been like a sauna. I hate to complain about the heat because in January we will be freezing our tails off, but the heat and humidity gets really old after a while.

About a week ago we finally got a break. The humidity, for now, is all but gone. It still gets pretty warm in the day but the nights cool down to the high 60s and the mornings have a refreshing coolness. It has been glorious.
