Well, this morning is starting off with one of my FAVORITES! It’s the first annual Manda Strong Foundation Golf Tournament!
I am just so proud of this organization! Sweet Manda asked her dad to do something like this for mamas’ fighting cancer and oh my word…it has turned into his mission in life. It’s incredibly beautiful to watch unfold. To learn more about MSF, click HERE. I just know this golf tournament will be a huge success!
First up, I have a question for you. One of my absolute favorite things is this…
…my Kindle Paperwhite. Question for you guys, do you know of a fabulous waterproof Paperwhite case??? I like to read out by the pool, but I’m always nervous that it will get wet. I tried putting it in a large baggie and that worked, but there was a glare off the bag (the Paperwhite is awesome because there is typically no glare). Any ideas???? I would love to know if you use something awesome!
So, I posted this pic on my Insta story this week…
…and had a lot of questions!
If I were stranded on a deserted island and could only bring one thing, I would bring coconut oil. (I mean, if a cell phone with great service wasn’t allowed…) I was showing it on Insta Stories this week to say it’s great to use as a hair mask after swimming…but, I also use it for all of these things: sunburns, chapped lips, to remove even the most stubborn eye makeup, and as a body moisturizer. It really does everything. It’s just basic coconut oil from the grocery store. Right there on the oil aisle. I use it two ways with swimming, sometimes, I apply it to my dry hair BEFORE I get in the water and then other times, I apply it after as a hair mask (and wash it out later…typically a few hours later). It’s a-mazing.
Something else that’s amazing for pool hair…apple cider vinegar.
I’m pretty sure a reader gave me this tip, but way back in 2012, my hair was green all summer long.
I mean…I could not for the life of me get rid of the green.
And then someone suggested washing my hair in a little ACV and bam. Hair was back to normal.
Okay, this is really cool! If you’re local then you’ve heard of Play Street Museums, well my friends just purchased a franchise PLUS they own a Play Street Museum on Wheels! They have taken the traditional Play Street Museum concept and put it into an vintage Airstream that travels to different locations. They share the same vision as Play Street Museum: to inspire imaginations through dramatic play and to encourage exploration through educational activities. They can host parties at homes plus at events and even schools. Look, they spent the day at Ashby and Madeley’s school just the other day…
Isn’t it so cute?! Those are their two oldest girls (really good friends of Ashby’s!). They set up the inside of the Airstream and the outside too!
Even Britty got to play 🙂 .
Ah! I just think this is too cool for words!
Ann Marie is extremely passionate about education. She taught kindergarten and now stays home with their three little girls. She cannot wait to pursue her love of education again as she travels around DFW bringing Play Street Museum to elementary schools, preschools, daycares, festivals, wedding receptions, birthdays, HOA parties… the list could go on! Just picture any place where children need entertaining and PSM On Wheels will be a fit perfect!
Contact them today to have Play Street Museum On Wheels travel to a school or community event near you! I just love, love, love this idea. My girls had the best time playing at their school!!
Look at this cute cup my friend Amanda made me! I mean…that’s adorable, right?!
She knows how much I love a cute cup, so when she saw that one of my goals was to drink more water, well dang, she nailed it, right?!! You can find her Etsy store HERE in case you need one too!
Hey, hey, hey…look what is back in stock…
…my America tee 🙂 . Don’t all of your red, white and blue holidays need it???
Speaking of red, white and blue…have you seen my Pinterest boards lately? I mean…I’m pretty mediocre at most things in life (and completely stink at even more), but I am a PROFESSIONAL PINNER. Ha! (I’m really not, I just love to Pin like nobody’s business!). You gotta check out this board…
And last but not least, I wasn’t even going to take a pic of this dress the other day, but when I stepped outside to leave, I just thought the color was BEAUTIFUL! So, I took an awkward selfie…
…because I wanted you to see the dress and my Stella & Dot earrings too. Isn’t it pretty??? Online, it looks more coral, but in person, it’s a little bolder. It also comes in blue and right now, it’s 40% off 🙂 .
Okay, if you missed any of my posts this week, you can take a look back. On Monday, I shared our SUMMER OF FUN list, I also showed you a Mother’s Day Menu for this weekend later in the week as well as asking advice about CHORES & ALLOWANCES (you guys gave me some FANTASTIC feedback!).
Happy Friday, friends! Don’t forget, if you have a great waterproof Kindle case, please comment!!!! xo
