3. Lake visit: since it’s been so hot here and we weren’t planning on heading to the shore, we met up with a few friends to visit a local lake. The boys had so much fun splashing around, trying to catch a fish with their little net and luring them in with Swedish fish. Fish catch fish, right? They didn’t actually catch one but a Dad next to us caught one with a cheese doodle and brought it over to let them hold it. I didn’t have my camera down by the water so I missed that one.
4. Community outreach: our church had a community outreach that was basically like a huge church picnic but they opened it up to for anyone to attend and a chance to reach out to others in the area. It was a great turnout and really nice to see some familiar and new faces. They had a classic car show, food for everyone, huge bounce houses, even a mobile petting zoo, and pony rides. To say the boys had a great time would be an understatement.
5. LIKEtoKNOW.it: I’ve thought about applying to LiketoKnow.it for awhile for now but always chickened out. I knew my following wasn’t that big on instagram and I always assumed that played a major role in their decision. Tif over at Bright on a Budget who was one of my first blogging friends has always been a great support to me and encouraged me to just apply for it. She heard they were accepting applications again so I decided to submit mine. Much to surprise I got an email back about a week or so later with a welcome letter. I was a little shocked and of course excited. I might have even done a little happy dance in my office. I’m still learning how to work the app and not really sure what will come of it, but I look forward to linking a lot more of not just what I wear but what the nuggets wear too.
Speaking of linking, can we just talk about the Nordstrom sale?!? I know, who hasn’t talked about it, but I may or may not have gotten up extra early this morning to try and snag a few things. Here are a few things that I had on my wish list. How cute is this cold shoulder pullover and this tie knot sweatshirt. I loved this tiered bell sleeve top but it’s sold out in my size and in the color I want. I really like this ruffle sleeve tunic dress which will be great for the office or a casual look. I also love this lace top and lace romper. I’ve been on the fence with this cardigan and keep going back and forth about it. I really like it but I’m worried that it’s such a specific looking cardigan that it will look like I’m wearing the same thing all fall. When I get a cardigan I wear them a lot. I’ve always gone with a general black or gray color so it’s not as obvious when I’ve worn it three times in one week. Ah, I’m so not sure about this one but I do really like it. What were some of your favorite picks from the sale?
I hope everyone has a great weekend! Here’s were you can find me linking up with some of favorites throughout the week.
