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.

Do you have travel plans this summer? What do you plan to pack?


  • It’s Friday – hurrah! Re-entry into regular life after spring break is always tough, and it makes for a long week. Tammy is back from the Dominican Republic, and me? Well, I stayed here – but I did manage to have a little fun during our week off of school. And we’re both back with… [Continue Reading]

    Wild About What’s New
  • Whenever there’s a holiday, you can be sure we’re incorporating food into it in a big way. One of our morning favorites is a baked French toast casserole. It’s perfect for Easter brunch, or Christmas morning (or pretty much any day that you’re craving a delicious breakfast). Over the years, we’ve adapted and tweaked an… [Continue Reading]

  • I wish I could say I was different than the norm, but I’m not. While I realize most people try to fit in, I’ve spend a considerable amount of time trying to stand out. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not crazy. I don’t push the envelope too drastically. I mean I still buy random clothes from Target so… [Continue Reading]

    I’m Not Any Different
  • Every winter, I schedule a chemical peel at Dr. Prischmann’s office. I’ve mentioned before that I have melasma, and this helps to lighten some of the discoloration from that. Plus, I love having fresh and new skin once a year for so many reasons. Typically, I schedule my appointments for the winter months, because the… [Continue Reading]

  • It’s finally officially spring here in Minnesota, but we’ve all been  hanging out outside and celebrating as if it has been spring for weeks now. We go a little stir crazy in this chilly tundra of a state during the cold weather months, and we’re ready to embrace some warmth. My kids are even running around… [Continue Reading]
