Here are some of my favorites this week!
1. Patriotic Cookies
Who doesn't love a good red, white, and blue cookie! These cookie bars are the perfect thing to take to any weekend BBQ or party that you are attending for Memorial Day or the 4th of July or really any summer event! The best part is they are a cake mix recipe. Go find the summer edition of the Funfetti Cake Mix and whip these up in 30 minutes! Click here for the recipe!
So after reading so many positive reviews online - both on blogs and on Nordstroms website - I decided to get the girls Natives over Crocs. I still love crocs but thought I would give these a try! Lacie says they are more comfortable than her crocs and loves putting them on. I love that my girls can put them on by themselves!!! I got pink, obviously, but Blakely's are a bit big so I may order a size down in the purple while I wait for her to grow into the pink!
Sunscreen application may not be my favorite part of summer, but it's a must for everyone - especially my kids who are so pale that you can see right through their skin! I have blogged about my love of the Honest Company before, and their sunscreen does not disappoint. It's a physical sunscreen, not a chemical sunscreen, which is so much better for your skin! It's super thick so it takes some time to rub in but it never comes off!
4. Bathing Suits
I totally dropped the ball on buying the girls bathing suits this year! Probably because they are so tiny that things tend to fit them for at least two years. But they've officially outgrown the bathing suit stashes that I have for them - which means it is time for me to get them new bathing suits (like NOW since it's already Memorial Day Weekend)!!! Girls bathing suits come is such variety! I always want to buy my girls the sweet, whimsical bathing suits that you can find at Nordstroms or Janie and Jack, but I almost always end up picking bathing suits that have a rash guard shirt. I know they're not always the cutest - but it means less sunscreen and more protection from the sun! Here are a few that I'm loving this year:
