Five on Friday

Happy Friday, friends!

1. Ella just finished another fun week of YMCA camp...this time was swim camp! She had an absolute BLAST!

Lucas and I went up to the Y to swim with some friends yesterday. I kind of thought maybe we wouldn't see Ella since the pool is so big and they aren't even in the pool the whole time?! But, of course her little group walked right into the splash pad where we were! She looked like she had seen a ghost when she saw me! It was a fun surprise! 

This boy just loves the water...maybe next summer he can do swim camp, too!

2. You all know I am not a big reader...I just don't have time! But since I had a lot of time to myself on the cross-country plane rides I took last week (and some time to do more reading by myself at the pool, since I wasn't chasing 2 kids around!), I thought I'd share the 2 books I read!

First, Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World. I had been wanting to read this book for a while, and the author had several good points. A lot of it was a little too conservative/religious-based for me personally, but overall I found myself nodding and saying "YES!" in my head quite a bit. It was a little more geared towards raising middle/high schoolers though, so I may need to re-read in a few years when my kids are asking for iPhones! :) 

Big Little Lies...I couldn't get into this book at all at first, but by the end I couldn't put it down. I definitely need to watch the show now!

3. Amazon Prime Day...did you score anything?! I was on an airplane for a good half of the day, so the only thing I managed to get were these sandals for Ella next summer! 

I never have good luck with Prime Day...what is the secret (besides, not being on an airplane of course)?!

4. What I did have good luck with (kind of) this week was the Nordstrom sale. I just can't be a blogger without mentioning the Nordstrom sale, right?! I am like you and am sick of hearing about this dang sale, but I do enjoy seeing what other people bought/want to buy, so I thought I'd share what I picked up yesterday!

Since the Nordstrom website kept messing up, I accidentally ordered that striped shirt and the Natives I'm already not really liking the maxi dress or red sweater, so those may get returned when I see how they actually look on me. I kept trying to delete them from my shopping bag but they wouldn't go away! So I felt like it was a sign I needed to get them I guess. We will see what all I end up keeping. 

5. Ugh, another shopping post! I'm sorry guys!!!! 
But, the new line of Shrimp and Grits Kids just launched this week, and how stinking cute are these models?!

I want everything!!!!

Have a great weekend!

  1. Ahhh I should have given you my wifi information for on the plane. Makes flights go by much faster. But, then you wouldn't have gotten to read those two books sooo!
