I'm not going to lie, a long weekend is just what the doctor ordered after the hectic month of June we have had. It's been all good things, but ultimately, I'm looking forward to a weekend of rest, hanging with friends, and sparklers. To kick off the weekend, I've rounded up some of my favorite links from around the interwebs to share with you:
+ You had me at Amy Poehler
+ Could NOT have been more excited about this news
+ Though I don't actually believe a balance is an achievable thing, I do think that these tips are worth implementing
+ Looking for a fun kid activity? We made these pops over this past week and Peanut loved them
+ It's real-life shark week for the NC and SC coasts; here are some legitimate reasons for why we are seeing an influx of shark & human interactions #scienceforthewin
and last, but certainly not least....
I hope you & yours have a fun & safe independence weekend!

I'm back in this dress again to show you the day time look. Seriously, don't be intimidated by dressing a look up or down, it's amazingly easy - throw on a jacket, shorter heels and call it a day. Also, I feel like the shoes are worth a discussion. If you follow me on instagram, you probably saw my angst over birkenstocks. Basically, after saying never, I caved. And in a big way. In addition to the comfort level, I needed to take a break from heels. Just don't get too used to it.

So go on, give 'em the cold shoulder!

The thing about this dress is that it is comfortable and amazingly versatile. I wore the night time look for a night out while we were in Chicago and when I got the dress home was pleasantly surprised with how easy it was to dress it down as well (You'll see that look later this week). But for night time, I feel like you can't go wrong with a leather jacket and some bling.

Oh hi there! Remember me? I guess in all of the craziness that was travel and Father's Day weekend, I took an unplanned break from ye olde blog. Sorry about that, but honestly, I was feeling a little maxed out in every aspect of my life. And it was nice to take a step back from everything (literally, we got out of town) and really reboot. I can't say that I'm totally there yet but I'm working on it. So without further ado, I thought I'd let my iPhone do the talking for me as to what we've been up to recently and if you are ever searching for a bit of a fix, you can always catch up with me on instagram.
