Monday Morning Musings | 258

It was an all weekend long celebration…

This past weekend was so. much. fun! It honestly felt like one big non-stop party, but on Sunday night I totally crashed! I feel like I may need one more day to recover from going-going-going, but I wouldn’t want it any other way.

On Friday night we threw a little impromptu birthday party for our sweet nanny, who has become family! We popped the Prosecco, made Aperol spritzes, pulled out the snacks, and ordered a pizza. We had the BEST night celebrating her! We even found my old CD collection from high school and went through some of the more *special* mixes I made… let’s just say it was very Usher and Nelly heavy, and truly hysterical!

Then on Saturday we met my in-laws for breakfast at our favorite little place to celebrate Ryan’s dad, and our G-dad! We sat outside, watched the ducks swim by, and had the best time being together. I love when we get to spend time one-on-one with them. In such a large family it is rare, but so always sweet. After breakfast we headed to our best friend’s house for a pool party to celebrate the dads! Laurens was in heaven swimming right through his afternoon nap with his buddies, just so happy to be a part of the crew. There were cannonball competitions, fancy takeout sandwiches, and far too much fun!

And then on Sunday after church we headed out to brunch with my family! The cousins were just so cute in their little highchairs wearing their Sunday best. We brought a bag full of tricks and snacks to keep the little ones entertained and I think it worked, for the most part! But I loved getting to celebrate my dad as a little family of eight.

These days are so full in the very best way! Although I may need an eight-o-clock bedtime tonight!

Okay, now that I’ve told you all things and totally caught you up on the weekend events, let’s get into my five favorite things shall we?!

5 Things I’m Loving

I had a hard time narrowing it down to five!


Under $200 Summer Cart

I just got this cart in and I am SO into it! I’m going to use it as our “summer hub” and keep it stocked full of all the snacks, juice boxes, sunscreen, and toys! It will be so easy to roll onto the porch for our backyard playdates.

Striped Overalls

These red stripe overalls are burning a hole in my Boden cart! HOW cute would they be for the 4th?! Plus they are on mega sale. Laurens definitely needs them!

Fun Summer Accessory

I love a good arm party and this is so cute at such a fun price. The colors are happy and summery! Wear alone or stack it up! LOVE.



Classic Stripe T-Shirt

I have these tops in the long-sleeve version but they just launched the short-sleeve and it’s a 100% yes for me. I LOVE the drop shoulder and relaxed fit. It’s so good and easy to thrown on for summer.



$17 Shorts

Um, well these are adorable! They come in a really fun red too. Under $20 and would be so fun for the Forth celebrations!
