Happy Friday, friends! Remember how I said I was going to start giving you guys random updates on Friday and then totally dropped the ball last week? I am just going to go ahead and blame it on the 4th of July. But really though, how are we into July right now? Crazy talk.
The It Cosmetics Motherload // It Cosmetics sent me an amazing collection of products and tools. I practically hyperventilated when I opened this package. I felt really legit. Like, they wanted to send this to lil ol’ me?!?!?! I filmed a video of me using all of these products and hope to get it up soon. It kind of is a hot mess because Kennedy comes into the frame and wants to make her own video, and then Greg comes in at one point. Haha!
Dashboard Confessional aka College Nostalgia // Katie invited me to be her date at the Dashboard Confessional and Third Eye Blind concert. Whitney met us there and we sat in some awesome seats with a great view. The concert was so much fun! Everyone there was totally our age and there for the nostalgia. Fun fact: Katie and I have been to countless concerts together when we were in high school and college. We loved us some punk, ska, emo, etc. We have probably seen Less Than Jake perform 15 times and been out at Numbers way too late than high school girls should be. It was only fitting we saw Dashboard together. I literally sang along to every song (well, the ones that were released during my college years) and my goodness, I felt old. Especially yelling the lyrics, “We’re not 21 – but the sooner we are, the sooner the fun will begin – so get out your fake eyelashes and fake IDs – and real disasters ensue….” Any other diehard old school Dashboard fans around?
Home Decor Refresh // Since I’m home so much during the summer, I get the itch to work on stuff around the house. I refreshed our entryway, and here’s a little peak at it. It somehow took this shabby chic turn and I am digging it. We are getting recessed lighting in our kitchen next week and I am pumped for it. I am also refreshing our master. We’re hitting up Ikea tomorrow and I have my shopping list all ready to go!
Beachin’ It // Yesterday, we headed out to Galveston for a beach playdate! We met Lauren and Michelle and their kiddos. It was tons of fun. We went to a pocket park, which let us park our cars on the beach and it was not crowded at all. Kennedy (my scaredy cat) ended up warming up to the water and put her feet in it, and even sat down at the shoreline. She is becoming more brave and I am very proud of her! Caroline, on the other hand, is my daredevil. Girlfriend would have swam away if I let her. I spent a lot of time making sure she wouldn’t eat sand or swim away into oblivion. She thought it was so awesome and every time I scooped her up, she got this mischievous look on her face. Thank you, Lauren for taking these pictures (also, go check out her blog – she is super sweet)! I have a feeling we’ll be heading there more often, as it’s only about a 30 minute drive and everyone had so much fun.
Happy Friday! Hope y’all have a fantastic weekend!
