Summer Fridays, Vol 9.

summer fridays

This is one heck of a refreshing summer friday!

EATING

This weekend I’m going into reset mode after being on carbcation. I’m thinking of prepping my summer chickpea salad, making my blueberry summer salad and this heirloom and grilled peach pasta. I also may make these steak and potato skewers for sunday night dinner.

DRINKING

Since we’ve been on the topic of frozen drinks this week, I have my layered watermelon coconut shakes on my mind!

MAKING

This poppy seed fruit salad for the weekend. This is such a refreshing treat and just so good. The kids love it too! I’m also going to do a batch of my copycat chipotle corn salsa.

BAKING

Bursting blueberry coffee cake muffins for the weekend. Okay we can still have a little treat.

CRAVING

These marinated grilled veggies with avocado whipped feta. They are the best.

LISTENING

To this mellow moves playlist. Perfect for the weekend!

READING

Well, I’m still reading The Last Flight. I had my first reading lull of the entire year on this vacation – guys, I couldn’t read ONE PAGE! While the kids are at a great age for the beach in that they can play nonstop, they are also nonstop the rest of the time and I just didn’t get a second and was too tired at night. Eeep! Hoping to finish it this weekend.

LOVING

The zen habits website. Seriously this is the best self care there is. I get lost in the site!

WEARING

The presidio dress from athleta. I actually ordered this back in May and it took forever to get to me – I just got it two weeks ago. But it was perfect for the beach and is just overall really cute and comfy. It’s definitely on the more casual side… you know I take my black summer dresses seriously. Ha.

SHOPPING

The Nordstrom sale! I shared all of my favorites earlier this week and will update them as the week goes on. There are so many things I LOVE in this sale. I mean, things I’ve used forever. I also keep seeing new things appear (especially in the kids section) so that’s exciting.

LEARNING

How to do reels on Instagram. What do you guys think? Most of me is like “UGH it’s another thing” but I’m also happy it’s in the IG app. Here are some details on it!
