Thursday Thoughts...What's Going on Now and Things I'm Loving

Thursday, July 3, 2014

Just a little about what's going on and things I'm loving now!
mmm..Carter's first ever popsicle- he wasn't too sure at first but grew to love it!

Mortgages and inspections and contracts, oh my!

We're in the midst of buying a new house!  It's been a whirlwind of a few weeks.  On my first few days of summer vacay I was organizing and cleaning out closets and just feeling like how are we going to make our townhouse work (aka where are all of my off season clothes going to go?!) when our guest bedroom turns into a nursery?! So a few days later we started casually looking at houses and 4 days later we were putting in an offer!  It wasn't a house where we thought we wanted to be, but we walked in and it was just meant to be!

Luckily it's totally move-in ready since we'll be settling on it in mid August right when school is starting.   So cue the yard sale and moving trucks- I'll be busy packing this summer!

St. Tropez Tanning Mousse and Applicator Mitt




My friend Jessica recommended this and said the applicator mitt was a must and was she ever right!  I love this product and the mitt is awesome- no more splotchy hands.  My advice- buy 2 mitts.  That way while one is drying you can use the other one for a day 2 application.  Unfortunately my Sephora has been out of the mitts for the last 3 times I went in to buy another :(

Nars Tinted Moisturizer

My favorite Laura Mercier tinted moisturizer which I have loved for years and years somehow started making me break out this year (that or pregnancy hormones- who knows!)  So I switched to Nars and I love it!  It's smooth, light, yet gives a good amount of coverage and SPF 30 and has a nice light citrus-y smell!

baking baking & more baking
Brownie Bottom Ice Cream Cake (brownie mix, chocolate frosting, ice cream, heavy whipping cream, and sugar)

Carter is my #1 baking assistant and he is always ready to whip up a yummy dessert (even though a few ingredients hit the counter or floor instead of the mixing bowl!)  This week we made another batch of monster cookies, chocolate peanut butter chip cookies, Neiman Marcus chocolate chip cookie dough bars (which didn't turn out so well) and a yummy brownie ice cream dessert for my dinner club.  

We are getting our red, white, and blue ready for the 4th of July weekend!  Looking forward to the long weekend at the beach and picnics with family and friends!

  1. Your little boy is adorable! It looks like he is enjoying that popsicle! Congratulations on the new house. I hope that everything works out for you as well. We also recently bought a new house. While the paperwork is lengthy, you will enjoy being in a new home that you can call yours.
