Happy Friday, friends! It's been a while, and I am back, linking up with some fabulous ladies, Andrea, Narci and Erika to share my Friday Favorites!
I cannot believe that summer is pretty much here!! The kids that I tutor are done this week and the water parks open next week, so I am saying that it is officially summer starting now! Hopefully some of my favorites from this week will get you as excited for summer as I am!
I am loving this new tv show...well, new to me! I have seen commercials for hit here and there, but never thought to watch it until now. You see, the tv at our house does not get turned on until after Henley's bed time unless it is playing Disney Jr., but some days I am doing lots of laundry or work at my desk and just need a little noise in the background. This is when I "watch" tv. I prefer shows that I don't really have to pay super close attention to and this one is fabulous! The episodes are only 30 minutes, so I am already starting season 2, but season 4 starts in June, so I still have lots of episodes to look forward to! If you need a fun, new show to watch, I highly recommend this one! I love the characters and the plot line is really good. Plus, who doesn't love watching Lizzy McGuire all grown up?!
I am OBSESSED with OPI's Strawberry Margarita nail polish for summer! For Mother's Day, Ben told me to go get myself a mani/pedi while Henley was napping, and I jumped at the chance. This favorite is a little bit of a two-in-one, because I got my first gel manicure too! OMG, I'm in love! I don't get manicures, like ever, and when I do, I am always disappointed that I need another one about 4 days later. This time, I went for the gel, and here we are, almost two weeks later and although I am not showing you a picture of my nails because they are slightly grown out and could currently use some moisturizer, my mani is going strong! I still doubt that I will be getting manis on a regular basis, but when I do, they will be gel, and I will also be ordering some Strawberry Margarita off amazon for my at-home mani/pedis. It is the perfect color for the summer, and until August, it is the closest I'm getting to any real strawberry margarita!
Old Navy activewear shorts are my absolute favorite right now!! I recently bought three new pair, including the pattern above and am in love. They are not maternity, but I just purchased a size small and they work perfectly. The patterns they have are so darn cute, they fit perfectly and they are so affordable...win, win, win! We are going to Colorado in June, and I have a feeling a few more of these will end up on my door step before then. I am constantly washing them so I can wear them again!
I am loving me some Nancy Thayer right now! I just read two of her books, and when I finished, I went back to the library and checked out two more. They are the perfect summer reading material!
Swim Lessons!! We are loving swim lessons at Miss (she's really Mrs.) Amy's! The first day was a little rough, but Henley is absolutely loving it right now! After her lesson yesterday, she did not want to leave and as we were getting in the car she was saying "mommy, I so happy in the pool!" I love it!! She told me that she blew bubbles, kicked her feet and even went under the water yesterday. Since she had so much fun, Ben and I took her to his parent's house to splash around for a while in their pool afterwards. We ended up heating the hot tub a little so we could all be a little more comfortable and had a blast! Henley wouldn't go under for us, but later last night, Amy posted the below picture on Facebook for proof!!
How cute is this?!?! I am so glad she is loving the pool! One of the first things she told me when she woke up this morning was, "Mommy, I go to Miss Amy's pool today and be happy!" After today we have one more week of lessons, and I can't wait to see how much she loves the pool by then!
For those who would like to know, we are going to Amy's Aquatics. You can look up the website and she also has a Facebook page. I am not getting paid to write this blog, so all opinions are my own, and my opinion of Miss Amy is that we love her!
