Friday Updates // Summer in Full Swing!

Hey, friends! Hope you guys have had a great week so far. I decided as long as the spirit moved me to, it would be fun to start giving you guys some life updates. I’m thinking I can share some favorite things, not-so-favorite things, what we’ve been up to, etc. Sometimes I feel like this space gets concentrated with beauty posts and baby posts, and I’m hoping to break it up a bit! So let’s just go ahead and jump right in!

splash pad with girls

Hello, Summer! Summer, summer, summer! I have just loved being home with the girls. It can sometimes be a little overwhelming with two kids, especially with a 3.5 year old who loves to keep busy, but we have definitely kept busy. Kennedy’s in a dance class once a week, we’ve gone on some playdates, and she’s finishing up her first VBS week this week (she is going to another one in late July). This girl gets cabin fever easily, so I am trying to get them out of the house at least once a day. They are also napping at the same time, so that is a nice break in the afternoon!

mac pro longwear nourishing waterproof foundation and snob lipstic

I picked up some new MAC goodies a few weeks ago. I got the new Pro Longwear Nourishing Waterproof Foundation and Snob lipstick. Both are quickly becoming new favorites! The foundation is really staying put in this hot weather, and the lipstick is a cool-toned soft pink with a satin finish. Loving them!


Girls’ nights have been a regular occurrence around here, and I am loving every minute of it! We went out for my birthday, Michelle had a spray tan night, and then I got to catch up with some of my favorite ladies at Katy Wellness Centre, and it was a great night of friends and pampering! Thanks to Nicki Evans Photography for this cute picture of Amy, Katie, and me! And if you’re in the Katy area, you definitely need to check out the Wellness Centre and Well Polished!

rain rain go away

Goodness, will this rain ever end? It seems as if when we finally get a break, more will come. As I am sitting here typing this post, a storm randomly blew through and now it’s sunny again in a matter of 30 minutes. Houston weather – go home, you’re drunk. Anyway, about two weeks ago, we made a Target run and as we were walking out into the parking lot, the sky opened up and we experienced a complete downpour on us! I ran as fast as I could while pushing a cart with a toddler and a baby and got them in the car in record speeds! Kennedy ended up thinking it was a fun adventure, and I suppose it was fun. But I just got my hair cut that day and the rain totally ruined my awesome blowout. Womp womp.

Meg & Caroline

We are nearing closer to this one’s first birthday! I seriously can’t believe it. I am trying to figure out a theme for her party. So far I’ve come up with “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, 1 Year Old is What You Are” (pink, stars, and gold glitter sort of theme) or “You Are My Sunshine” (yellows and golds) or “Somebunny is One”  (garden party sort of feel). Right now I’m leaning towards the twinkle twinkle one. I’m kind of getting emotional here thinking about my sweet Caroline turning one!!

And that’s about everything! How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?
