I’m sure many moms (or dads) can agree that being a parent is a hard job. Our time is dedicated to our children whether it’s feeding, bathing, playing with them, or making sure they’re attended all the time. But all of that energy you spend on your kids can be overwhelming at times, especially if you don’t take time for yourself. I’m a huge believer of parents making time for themselves because we need our sanity. Am I right? Here are some ideas of “How I Do Me Time as a Mom“.
Warm weather, birds chirping and beautiful sunsets are things we love about summer. But mostly because we’re able to go on picnics and enjoy time together. Last year Brian and I went on our first picnic and we really enjoyed doing that because we were spending time alone without the kids, it was romantic and we were able to bring our own food and of course bottle(s) of wine. Who else loves drinking bottles of wine at the park with your partner? It’s the perfect Summer Day Date Picnic.

How many of you have honestly forgotten something when you’re on the road to the water park? I have! As a mom, I’m always having to double and triple check our water park bag to make sure we have everything we need. Especially for the boys because being in the car for a while can be something kids don’t handle very well. Which is why today I’m sharing with you my Water Park Essentials.

Growing up my mom was always on us about making sure we took our shoes off as soon as we walked into the house. Reasons for this was because she didn’t like her carpets dirty or seeing dirt in the house. When I got my own place with my boys – that rule became a rule in our home. Funny how that works. I realized that by doing this it really does keep our place clean.
During this time of the year, Target is the best place to shop for American Flag Shorts or anything that has the American Flag. I swear Target takes my money every time I go in there because they have the cutest clothes. When it comes to shorts I’m extremely picky because I am short, I have a butt and curves. I saw these at Target and I had to pick them up because they are perfect for 4th of July. Plus they are high waisted shorts and although I always have the hardest time with high waisted shorts because some of them show your cheeks. I was lucky enough to find a pair that didn’t.
Last week I shared with you an affordable Fourth of July look but I promise this isn’t another holiday outfit. If you guys read my post last week I purchased a few items from SheIn. If you’re unfamiliar with SheIn – it’s basically an international online shop that sells affordable clothes. I was told about this shop through my friend Steffanie from Brighter Darling and I was immediately impressed by the price of the clothes. But there’s a difference when you look at the price and the quality of the clothes.
Now that we’re full blown summer weather, I’m collaborating with my blog bestie Alexis from A Blissful Haven to share with you, our Summer Beauty and Fashion Must-Haves. We rounded up our favorite beauty and fashion items. With it being warm out I’m sure you want to know what are great beauty products to use this summer and what fashion trends are in or are our favorite trends. When it comes to beauty in the summer I like to keep it very minimal. The fewer products I have to put on, the better because I have oily skin and I hate when I feel sweaty with a bunch of beauty products on.
This weekend we had the pleasure of going to the Kalahari Resorts. Now if you read my Summer Bucket List, you saw me talk about how going to the Kalahari Resorts in Wisconsin Dells was on our bucket list because it’s such a great fun place to go as a family. Well, thanks to Kalahari Resorts we were able to go for the day. Let me just say that we had the BEST TIME there. The boys and Brian have never been there but I have a few years ago but a lot has changed since I’ve been there. First off they have this new water ride called “The Smoke that Thunders”.
