Weekly Round Up

Friday, July 6, 2018

Happy Friday!

How was everyone's 4th of July?! Chandler and I had a nice relaxing day. We had planned on going to the beach but it rained until almost noon. Since the beach would've been too crowded to get a spot by that point, we decided to hang out by the pool, enjoy some delicious Publix subs, and enjoy some time with friends. All in all a good day!

Below are this week's featured articles. I hope you all love them!


Food:

I love popsicles! I don't think I know anyone who didn't grow up with popsicles in the summer. What Moms Love recently shared a blog post with the best healthy popsicle recipes for kids. Of course I'll be making some for myself. 😊

Who knew cheese dip could be healthy? I know I sure didn't! Almost every time Chandler and I go out to eat Mexican food we order queso. It would be nice though to be able to make it at home. I can't wait to try this recipe from The Cookie Rookie for our next taco night at home.

My birthday is on Monday which means I need a birthday cake right?! #earnedit 😂 This cake recipe from Averie Cooks has everything I want in a cake: vanilla, funfetti, and buttercream icing!

I really like Greek food. I haven't had too much but what I have had I've enjoyed. If you've ever eaten at Zoe's Kitchen, then you know how good their Greek salad is. Once I found this greek chicken pasta salad recipe from Budget Bytes, I got super excited. I can't wait to make this one of these nights.

Entertainment/Life

I shop at IKEA occasionally, but for those that shop there more frequently, this article from The Kitchn is pretty cool. It has a handful of family shopping perks that not everyone knows about.

I love watching The Bachelor/Bachelorette plus all of the off season versions of the show such as Paradise. A handful of the cast from the upcoming season of Bachelor in Paradise has officially been confirmed and a few favorites of mine are on the list! I will say, there are also a few people I can't stand that are on the list too... You'll know who.

I loved seeing all of the Fourth of July looks this week, but the one below from Suzy Shattuck is by far one of my faves! I seriously want her jeans.

Another one of my favorite fourth of July looks (on the dressier side) was from Ali Smith. This red jumpsuit is so flattering and the color is beautiful.

Looking for a suit that you can slay the summer in? Ashley Schuberg shared this cute pink suit on her Instagram this week that I would love to wear to the office on these hot summer days!

I have so many favorite swimsuits right now. If only I could afford myself. 😂 The struggle am I right?! Sumana shared this super cute red one-piece swimsuit and watermelon bag on her Instagram this week for the fourth of July and I just loved it.

I have seen so many gorgeous styles from Vicidolls lately. Another instance of not being able to afford myself haha! Jessica Lo shared this gorgeous blue polka dot maxi dress on her Instagram that I am really considering buying. It's such a flattering style and would look good all summer long!

Last but not least is this fun ruffle skirt that Gabrielle Morlet shared. I love ruffle details on different clothing styles because put in the right place, can be really flattering. This ruffle skirt is the perfect example!

That's all for today's weekly round up blog post! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and if you're still celebrating the 4th of July, please be safe and have a great time.
