Fun Finds on Friday

We travel a lot during the summer months, and the first of our trips (down to Chicago for a bit) is coming up soon. So this week’s edition of Fun Finds is all about being on the go.

I love my camera. So very, very much. But it’s a bit of a monster, and definitely not suitable for stashing in a handbag. The camera on my iPhone has become my replacement point and shoot, and it works beautifully – especially via Instagram. But how much cooler would those vacation photos be with this sweet 3-in-1 lens set, with fisheye, macro, and wide angle lenses included?!

Whenever I travel, I’m always sure to pack a ton of sunglasses because I always know I’m going to lose or break at least one pair before my return. This adorable pair is only $9, and at that price I can justify throwing a few more in the suitcase.

A pair of shorts I can dress up or down saves me space in my bag – which means I have more room to pack another pair of shoes. You know I like that. Plus, this pair is a mere $16.99, which means I can afford to buy another pair of shoes. And you know I LOVE that.

This dress has an easy breezy vacation feel to it, no matter what your destination is. Bonus: it’ll hide the food baby I’m sure to acquire after a few rounds of deep dish pizza and other Chicago specialties.

  • I recently went to a soup cook off, and knew I needed a killer recipe to make. I’m a wee bit competitive, so you know I’m going to bring my A game if there’s a prize on the line. Since I had just made my souper tasty (see what I did there? tee hee) white… [Continue Reading]

  • Our new neighbor, Bob, has the best photography backdrop. It’s old. It’s real. It’s alive with business. It’s down right cool. Now Bob and his sons might think we are complete nutso but we don’t care.

  • Right now it’s the season for making merry, and that includes all the fun treats to be had, right? Macy’s was so kind, and sent over a box full of fun. My kids got right to work, baking up some goodies in cute little shapes. A Mason jar packed with all you need to jump… [Continue Reading]

    ‘Tis The Season For Yummy Treats
  • I love Christmas music. Our whole family does. In fact, we start playing it the day after Halloween, and we really don’t play much of anything else until the day after Christmas. I asked my kids the other day which song was their favorite. Sadie’s was “Santa Baby” – the Madonna version. Davis loves “Rockin’… [Continue Reading]
