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.

    House Tour – Kids’ Bath
  • Sometimes feeling fancy just means wearing a tulle dress on an ordinary day. Wake up feeling ordinary; feed the dogs and the kids, still feeling ordinary; race into Zumba at the last possible second, totally ordinary occurrence for me; shower and get ready for an ordinary day of errands with the kiddos.  Ordinary. Ordinary. Ordinary.… [Continue Reading]

    What’s Under Your Skirt?
  • After nearly 7 years in our house, we are getting neighbors. This past fall, two new houses went up on our street. I was happy about it. After all, the lot next to me, and the one behind me were still empty. I still had my unobstructed view of the trees, and tons of privacy… [Continue Reading]
