life rearranged
linking up my weekly phone pics with jeannett again this week!

we celebrated sean’s birthday this week – 37 never looked so good!

in case i ever forget my kids’ names, lisa is so helpful!

i always take awhile to warm up to trends.  actually, i tend to miss them completely before i decide i like them.  a couple years ago i swore i’d never wear skinny jeans…  so yes, i’m pretty late on the high bun thing.

i was searching through old pics on my computer and i found this one.  its me and my friend nicole’s youngest baby from a couple years ago.  it made me happy/sad to see this.  happy for the memory, sad that we don’t get to see them enough…

we finished off school this week and the kids brought flowers fresh form our garden to give to their teachers.  my garden is at its best ever right now – so fun!

many of these will be consumed this summer.  many.  many.  many. (yes, thats a pb cup in there)

i finished our summer list!

nothing says summer like fish tacos and a strawberry margarita.  quick recipe:  frozen talapia from costco, sprinkled heavily with lemon pepper, cooked in olive oil.  add black beans, avocado, peach salsa, and pepperoncinis all wrapped in a flour tortilla- so yummy!

at this point, i think we’ll just leave the christmas lights up.  don’t judge.

lisa’s new summer line had me dreaming of one day having a big fancy product line myself – her new line is amazing!

some days are long and some days are hard.  and some days are long and hard.  i am so thankful for a husband who recognizes that and let’s me go out for a long date with myself.  coffee, a cookie, and a pile of magazines did the trick!

school’s out – let’s start summer!  a sweet friend has a very warm pool close by that we fully intend to over use this summer!

our school celebrated ending the year with a bubble bash – the kids were so happy!

although this new messenger bag sold already, i have more  in the works!  i’m hoping to list a couple more in the next few days, so keep an eye out if you’ve been waiting to get one!

kids in bed.  a moment of peace.

happy friday!

    Our Christmas lights are still up too. I told hubby this morning, we should take them down tomorrow. And he said “Why? It will be December before we know it.” Bother.

    If I saw Christmas lights still on your house, I would just assume you celebrate Christmas in July! ;)

    Love your summer service board….what a great idea! Love that your Chistmas lights are still up too. I think you should light them up for the 4th of July!

    I’m so excited that I was actually able to buy that messenger bag, I thought for sure I’d missed out on it by the time I saw it posted on facebook and instagram ~ love the color combo and I can’t wait to see it in person! :)

    This new messenger bag is amazing, Lindsey! Do you also ship abroad? (In my case it would be to Germany… :) )
    And I loooooove your pile of magazines! Being a magazine addict myself and buying horrendous amounts each month of national and international magazines I am so relived when seeing other people do the same :D :D :D

    Happy weekending!

    Looks like a fabulous date night with yourself. I love that Cottage Life is on the top of the pile…I’m from Ontario Cottage country! I got to meet Joseph Boyden (that’s what caught my attention first on that magazine) at a reading conference this winter.

    I have no doubt you will have a big fancy product line of your own someday! Till then, I am off to scope out that adorable bracelet — LOVE!
