summer fridays

Happy happy summer fridays! XO


Um hi, I’m still knee deep in a strawberry obsession over here! I’m very sad we didn’t get to go strawberry picking yet this year. But we’ve been enjoying local ones and all I can think about is my strawberry focaccia. And this strawberry grilled chicken poppyseed salad!


My strawberry cobbler bars. RUN don’t walk and bake them. They are so good! The original is a peach blueberry combo from The Pretty Dish.


My loaded hummus havarti sandwiches for lunch! I adore these in the summer. They are so crisp and fresh and wonderful. I also can’t stop with the tomato confit from Everyday Dinners, which is what is pictured about. It’s INCREDIBLE.


Please tell me you’ve made my sweet cream cold brew fudgesicles before! It’s been SO HOT here and I can’t stop dreaming about them. I even bought some old-school fudgesicles for the kids this week.


We are allllll about the grilled pizza right now! I am craving my grilled steakhouse pizza – it’s so darn good. I also love these grilled watermelon and halloumi skewers with minted basil oil!


Majorly into my whipped coconut cream cold brew right now, even though I haven’t loved drinking coffee this pregnancy. Also can’t wait to make my spicy watermelon sangria later this summer.


Malibu Rising is on the list for me this weekend. I can’t wait, because the Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is my all-time favorite book and I love everything TJR writes! If you need suggestions, head to my huge summer reading list!


My 2021 summer country playlist! Last year the 2020 version got me THROUGH the spring and summer – gave me all the warm summer feels when things were so scary. This year’s playlist is just as good and I am loving so much of it!


Definitely want to start Hacks on HBO. Have you seen it yet?!


I finally packed my hospital bag… and I got the crazy cloud-like pillow slides that are so ugly but ridiculously comfortable. I’m also obsessed with this mason grey robe and want to find it in all black. They are ridiculously soft! Other than that, I feel like I’m not taking much at all.


We were swimming over the weekend and since I’ve never been THIS pregnant in summer, I had to figure out a suit just for a few weeks! I thought ordering up a size would work but found in many try ons that wasn’t successful because the suit wouldn’t stretch over the bump, haha. What I DID find and that I am absolutely obsessed with this is swimsuit from aerie. OMG. It’s so soft and stretchy and wonderful – it did work in a size up and I think it will work a few weeks after birth too. I’m also just losing it over how pretty some of these tie dye maxi cover ups are!



You know, I really didn’t think I needed any baby stuff, but then as time went on, I realized that so many of my things are seven years old (from Max!) and that there are a few new things out. Since we don’t know if it’s a boy or girl, I’ve grabbed a few nuetral outfits from lou lou & company, favorites to match the kids from little sleepies, a new dockatot cover (we used it constantly with Emilia!) and I’m considering a Doona too, after seeing Lacy use it for the last seven months (it’s incredible!). We’re still going with our bassinest for sleep (something I impulse purchased at 39 weeks when pregnant with Max), which has been my favorite thing for both kids!
