Welcome to the Sunday Skim. Your weekly recap of all things style, home, entertaining, family, community, midlife and shopping.
What’s Been Happening. I finally got three posts out in one week this summer. Woo Hoo. I admit I have been enjoying the summer a little too much with lots of sun, sleeping late, staying up late and just overall not living on a schedule. It has been amazing but as I started looking at my July calendar I realized that I only have 6 weeks left of summer and then it’s back to school for the kids. What… Is… Happening??? Half way through and still so much fun to have.
Style. Golden Lily brought over some headbands for me to try this week. I fell in love with three of them that will work b=perfectly for the summer months and also will transition into fall.
Home. Someone was commenting on Facebook the other day how it is almost impossible to use your oven this time of the year. If I use my oven my house does not cool down for hours so we do everything in a crock pot or on the stove top. This recipe looks amazing and my kids love shrimp!
Entertaining. Want to impress people at your next get together? Make this.
Family. We have been out of the house so much this summer. It is fun but also exhausting and expensive at times. I was trying to think of some fun things we could do at home just so we can rest a little and also take a break from always being on the go. I love these water play ideas because they are easy to set up!
Midlife. Eating egg salad makes me feel fancy. I make it for myself at least weekly because sometimes when I am lost in this sea of testosterone I need something dainty and feminine. This is my favorite recipe. Not really “midlife” related but you know what summer can be a lot, raising kids can be a lot, being a wife can be a lot, working can be a lot so you deserve to find something that makes you feel a little fancy in the midst of all of the chaos.
Shopping. Gibson look dropped their new collection this week. Check it out here.
