Since being in Arizona, David and I found ourselves saying “the heat isn’t that bad!” We would look and see that it was 102 or so and think, this doesn’t feel as bad as I thought. I grew up in Arizona so I am used to it but haven’t lived here in 9 years. Anyways, today we were totally eating our words haha! I think the temps were around 116 and it definitely felt 116. It was rough even walking from the car to the ice cream shop! Am I dramatic? It really was! Ice cream was for sure necessary today. The kids were pretty cute eating their ice cream and I love that it takes them like 30 minutes to barely make a dent in it haha. *also side note: did anyone notice that the otter pops at Costco are now made with no artificial flavors OR colors/dyes? I thought that was pretty cool and I think they are so much tastier now!
So you know how people say, “it was one of those days where I didn’t get ready” … well for me the last few months have been quite the opposite and it was “it was one of those days where I actually got ready”. Partly because we were in Hawaii and that is just the routine you fall into – why get ready? No need. (anytime I did betta believe I documented it. And then went home and got in sweat pants haha). And trust me, I LOVE that lifestyle — it totally works when you are by the beach (especially when no one else gets ready, everyone just agrees that its acceptable to be barefoot with no make up and hair in mattes from swimming, anywhere you go). But when I am not by the beach I end up feeling a little lazy when I don’t get ready! I really feel so much better in an outfit with my hair combed etc. and I get so much more accomplished and I also feel like I do more with the kiddos. So I have kind of made a goal for myself to get up and put on an outfit that makes me happy. And if I am feeling up to it, a hairstyle that makes me happy too. Because I love doing my hair and I sometimes forget to take the time — when I do I am always so happy I did. Its the little things ya know?!
Oh and this jumper – I am in love with shirts under jumpsuits this summer! Jumpsuits are so practical as a mom – it has the comfort of a dress but you get a bit extra coverage when movin around 😉 but even not as a mom I just love cute jumpsuits. I linked to some more I love in the widget above. So many fun colors for summer! And these sandals – I lovvve them! Love that they have the height but still comfy.
