Ten Things I loved in July

Monday, July 29, 2019

1. Beau's Room Refresh: One random night I had enough with the problems in Beau's room and just started purging and ordering to solve the problem. Good thing I had some fun money saved, haha! His previous bed was metal and the bars were so wide that several times he would wiggle between them and get stuck and one day I was just like, NO MORE! I ordered him a new bed that has been a much better fit in several ways (it's a bit lower to the ground, giving me a little bit more peace of mind if he were to fall out, haha!) and ordering the bed just inspired me to get rid of a lot of lingering "nursery" details and give him a full big boy room. I need to style the top of his dresser but everything else is done and it's so much happier of a space. I've loved it being redone for him! I know he probably doesn't care too much but it makes me happy. More photos coming soon!

2. My New favorite Dress: Y'all may have noticed that I have a thing for dresses. This one is one of my favorite ones ever. Can't wait to take it on our upcoming trip!


3. Pina Coladas (lol): This is actually from the end of June, but we went out to dinner with some friends for a birthday and everyone ordered margaritas. I don't drink and on a whim I ordered a virgin pina colada and it was SO good. Like a yummy pineapple smoothie milkshake. I had another one last week for a girls night. It even had toasted coconut on top! Yum!!

4. Amazon White T-Shirts: I talked about these before but a white t shirt that you can wear without an undershirt, and has great length... AMAZING!!! I want 100 of these!

5. Elisabeth and Butter Banana Muffins: I'm always loving healthier baked goods for my kids since they wolf them down. This recipe was easy and delicious. Beau and Sophie approved! :)

6. Megan Molten on Instagram: I love finding new designers to follow on instagram, and her stories are particularly entertaining. She explains her installs and I've gotten a ton of inspiration from her spaces!

7. My kindle: CONTROVERSIAL TOPIC, haha! I gave up "real" books several years ago. Although I agree the experience of reading one is lovely, I don't like clutter, but I love reading. I also love rereading books. So the whole not wanting to hold onto books yet wanting to still have them thing only had one solution, e-books. I've exclusively read the kindle app on my phone or iPad for years but it had been hurting my eyes and I didn't love that I would still get texts which would distract my experience. I guess I could have put my phone on airplane mode but instead I got a kindle on Amazon Prime day and I'm so happy with it!! I ordered the one that Shay Shull recommended!

8. The Beaufort Bonnet Company's new fall arrivals: Shopping for my children is my #1 hobby, haha! Fall arrivals are so sweet and since I know it will be a bit cooler when we're in England this month, I quickly ordered a few things. Below I'll put a quick little slider of my favorite pieces from this first fall launch! :) I also jumped to order Soph a Christmas dress that is just DARLING!



9. Family Staycation + House stalking: Last week we had a sweet little staycation of family time and we ended up going to an estate sale on a gorgeous street. This beautiful home stopped me in my tracks and I loved looking at it, haha!


10. My Patriotic Babies! July 4th will always have a different meaning for our little family. In 2014 on July 4th we lost our first little angel in a miscarriage. It may seem silly to some, but putting my two in a special July 4th outfit and taking their photo brings me comfort and hope to a loss that will always sting. The photo this year was crazy to me because with Beau & Sophie sitting side by side I could almost imagine another baby or two seated beside them. It makes me excited for the ways the Lord will grow our family in the years ahead!
