Reading: Wish You Were Here by Renee Carlino. I couldn’t wait to dive in to this book. I loved Swear on this Life and Before We Were Strangers so much. I read half of this in one day and I cant wait to devour the other half as soon as possible!
Watching: Chris and I just finished Mad Dogs from Amazon Prime. There were 10 episodes in the first season and it was really weird, but we were hooked and couldn’t quit. This show is about four forty year old friends that go to Belize to visit their friend from college and things take an unexpected turn quite quickly. There were drugs, lies, deception and murder it was quite interesting!!! Also, Chris mentioned that this show had the best color and picture quality and I really have to agree.
Now we are watching the last season of Bloodline.
Lusting:I have gone through and gotten rid of all my cheap costume jewelry that I never wear anymore. You know the stuff. The things I thought were cute at places like New York and Company over the years and purchased in masses and then it quickly faded from my mind and style.I am much more in to a few basic, good quality pieces that can be worn over and over throughout the years. Basically what I am doing with my wardrobe lately too.
This adjustable lariat necklace has been on my wish list for a long time. I have a cheaper silver one that I wear several times a week and am obsessed with, but it is not adjustable and I really want to pull the trigger on this one but the price tag is a little steep. Though, I know I would get my wear out of it based on how many times I said I wish I had that necklace when I get dressed in the morning. Let me know if you know of a less expensive option!
And while I am lusting over necklaces, I love this one to layer with the one above and a few other pieces that I wear regularly!
Cooking:Now that it is warming up outside, I am all about the cooler foods. Salads, pasta salads and lots of fruit. How amazing does this Greek tortellini pasta salad look?
Pinning: Since we have purchased sand colored furniture for our living room, I find myself obsessing over neutral tones all over the room. I am loving this pinspiration!
Planning: We have our annual beach trip coming up soon. I am so excited! I think Chris and I are both very deserving of a few days away. While I know that going to the beach with an infant isn’t really going to be all that relaxing…the beach is my favorite place on the planet and a few days of not having to work on top of everything else I have going on is going to be so wonderful!
With all that said, we are going to be needing some items to make the trip easier with a kiddo in tow. I know we need to get a beach tent for shade. I like the idea of something with some ventilation because it gets hot as fuck!!! I am looking at something like this…
I know that we are going to need a wagon to tote all this stuff back and forth from our condo. And obviously beach towels, rash guard suits for the kiddo, sunscreen, a baby pool float and all that jazz. What other beach essentials do you recommend with a baby? We got every year so things like the tent and wagon are going to be great investments that we will use for years to come.
