Catching Up and Confessions

Hey, hey! Does this thing still work? 😉 We had a great extended vacation last week! Nothing better than a little time to relax and recharge in the midst of the summer craziness. I’m still getting back into the swing of things, so today I’m bringing you a little installment of catching up and confessions.

Catching Up and Confessions

Shop this whole look HERE

| Did you catch the news that Target is retiring Merona and Mossimo brands? I have mixed feelings about this. I’m a big fan of the Merona clothing, so I hope the new brand lives up to the hype.

| Our in-home family photo session was nearly a month ago, and I still haven’t ordered prints to update frames. I’d like to say it’s because I’m having trouble picking favorites, but mostly it’s because I’m lazy.

| I think that I need to go to a support group for sunglasses addicts. I have four pairs on rotation, and then last week I added this pair and this pair to the mix. Damn you, American Eagle for your BOGO 50% sale.

| Anybody else feeling the struggle with blogging this summer? Unless I’m ahead on posts, I just can’t find the motivation to sit down and be creative. The sunshine and warm weather is calling my name.

| It’s possible that I live under a rock, but I recently discovered that The Wet Brush brand also has a wide-tooth comb. This thing is incredible for wet hair that tangles into something resembling a bird’s nest.

| I never thought the day would come when I would have to ban myself from the library. Seriously – isn’t that a parent’s dream to have their kid go to the library all the time?! I have so many e-books and hard copies that I own that I need to get through first, though before I add more to the mix. Let’s see how long I make it. (Psst – I have a new recent reads post coming tomorrow! You can see past book reviews here.)

| Not that I want summer to be over anytime soon, but I also would like the next few months to hurry up so we can be on the beach in Florida. A change of scenery is much-needed right about now.

| Who else has been on a temporary shopping ban in preparation for the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale next week?! Minus a few indulgences here and there – ahem, the sunnies – I’ve been saving my pennies to update a few pieces in my wardrobe for fall. I got the credit card halfway through the sale last year, so I’m looking forward to being able to shop everything early!

That’s all from my side of catching up and confessions! How’s your summer going? Did you have a good holiday break? Leave me all the things in the comments!
