~ Have you seen the new American Girl doll?  I don’t think she’s available to buy yet, but her name is Maryellen and she’s from the 1950s.  And did I mention she’s adorable?

~ We’ve started preparing for back to school even though I am not ready for summer to end.  The girls got new shoes earlier in the week and dresses for the first day.  Other than that, they don’t need too much because it will still be warm enough to wear a lot of their nicer summer clothes.

~ Even though Bachelor in Paradise is a total train wreck, I’ve still been watching.

~ Has anyone heard when the new Erin Condren rose gold Life Planners are going to be available again?  I’ve emailed them, but haven’t heard back yet.  I don’t need a new planner until 2016, but I really want to get mine now before they sell out (again).

And I really love this cover:

~ It’s been so hot here lately (which I love) but it isn’t great for sleeping.  Everyone’s getting a little tired and cranky.

~ I’m hoping to get a lot of cleaning/organizing done this weekend, but with it being one of the last weekends before summer vacation it will probably be spent swimming and outside.

What’s on your mind this week?

FL2 – Fabletics Men Review

I was so excited when Fabletics announced their men’s line!  I love everything I’ve bought from Fabletics and was hoping the quality would be just as good on the men’s line.  I had some outfit credits, so we decided to try out the Pacific Outfit (which is currently available).

My husband has had this outfit for about a month now and still loves it.  The quality is still great after being put through the washer and dryer multiple times a week.  And, the fit was really true to size.  I was afraid the fabric might get messed up around the zipper by putting these in the dryer, but it still looks as good as new and absolutely no fading of colors.

You can get 50% off your first outfit when you sign up.  If you want to see how all of my Fabletics outfits look on, check out this review here.  Have you tried FL2?

I really thought this was a subscription that I’d order once to get my 50% off outfit and then I’d cancel.  But the quality of the clothes for the value is so great that I keep ordering.

~ Another crazy busy week around here.  I can’t believe it’s time to start thinking back to school :(

~ Friday night we took the girls to a local bike path to check out the blue moon.  They loved running the length of the path and definitely didn’t want to go home even though it was 9:00!

Off they go!

Check out the blue moon!

~ Saturday I took the girls to a local state park for a picnic and some hide and seek.  They don’t know but we are headed back there this weekend for a teddy bear picnic.

~ It’s been HOT (we’ve also had some crazy storms because of it).  So we’ve spent lots of time at my parents pool.  IMG_7407

~ I mentioned last week that a review was going to be posted and totally forgot to publish it.  Look for it around noon today (this time I scheduled it!)

~ Taking the girls to the bike path and the park made me realize I need a really good backpack for going out with them.  I really want a Ju-Ju-Be Be Right Back but that’s out of the budget.  I’ve been checking on ebay but haven’t found any used ones (in decent condition at a price I’d pay).  I need something with lots of organization…any suggestions?

~ Life is still CRAZY, but it’s finally starting to slow down.  (Thank goodness!!!)  I will have my first review in FOREVER later today.

~ It’s been hot and humid here.  The girls have been swimming in the pool and at the beach and spending a lot of time coloring and playing with play-doh.  Anything else just uses too much energy right now.

~ I started back at the gym last night (it was about 95) and my gym isn’t air conditioned.  I was exhausted for the rest of the night but it felt good to get back lifting weights.

~ Anyone else use hulafrog? I have been checking it out all summer and we’ve done a few things on the list.  My only problem is that we are really in between two regions for our state and there’s no way to look at all the events in both regions.  I really wish you could multi-select areas.

But, it’s a great way to find free/low cost events in your area.

~ I made my Dad get a state parks pass for him and my Mom yesterday.  We have one (but it’s $60/year) and use it for the beach all summer.  If you are over 62, you can get one in Massachusetts for $10 that’s valid for your lifetime.  Since parking at one beach is $10/day, it’s well worth it.

~ I’ve been cleaning (out) and doing laundry like crazy lately, but somehow the house still doesn’t look like we’ve worked that hard.  I’m hoping for the humidity to break so that we can wrap up some of the projects we have going this weekend.

~ We celebrated my parent’s 45th anniversary over the weekend and it was so much fun.  I think we are still recovering from all of the activity!  We had a cookout on Thursday night, Friday we did a family photo and then Saturday and Sunday were spent in Boston.

~ Now that the “big” cousins have gone back to Wisconsin, I have a very sad 5 year old.  They only get to see each other once a year and it’s always sad when they have to say good bye.

~ My husband is on vacation from work this week, so Ava was told no more diapers (she was totally ready to potty train, she just didn’t want to).  But, she is doing great!  Once  she realized the diapers were gone, she’s been heading to the bathroom herself and we’ve barely had to remind her.

~ We are still planning on a yard sale Saturday, but I’ve barely done anything to get ready for it.  I’m hoping that we’ll get through a lot of the kid’s clothes tonight and if I get enough done at work today I plan to take tomorrow off.  I don’t expect to get everything cleaned out, but I’d like to get a lot done.

Jamberry #Throwback Thursday

I was so excited when Jamberry announced that they would be bringing back retired designs every other Thursday for the summer.  We have no idea what they will be bringing back, but each design is only available for five days.  I didn’t love the last choice, but this week includes one design I REALLY wanted to see – STRAWBERRY GINGHAM and Siesta!

I love the Strawberry Gingham – perfect for summer and Siesta is just a fun, colorful wrap.

~ Another week has gone by with barely any posts!  Work has been crazy and life has been crazy.

~ We are planning a yard sale for next weekend and are trying to get stuff together for that without making a huge mess of the house (and without the girls seeing some of the stuff we are getting rid of).  We have so many baby toys, books and clothes!  It’s time to let another family get some use out of the stuff our girls aren’t using.

~ My brother and his family are coming in today from Wisconsin!  We haven’t seen them in a year and the girls are off the walls excited about it.  It’s my parent’s 45th anniversary, so we will be celebrating together all weekend.

~ Anyone watching Big Brother?  I loved last season, but I’m not really into this season (yet).  Maybe there are just too many people left.

~ I am loving American Ninja Warrior!  I watched a little last year and am trying to watch it all this year.  We watched it last weekend with the girls and they absolutely loved it.

What’s on your mind this week?
