Happy Friday all! And a very happy birthday to my dad!! We have a busy, but good weekend ahead!

ONE. The girls are in a wedding that we are attending during Labor Day weekend. And I have been on the hunt for a flower girl dress for them. I had to chose between, blush, gold and a cranberry dress for them. And since Labor Day is still (usually) hot here, I wanted something short sleeve.

I think I found the perfect dresses for them.

Now to find shoes to match these that are not crazy expensive.

TWO. A local girl that I follow on Instagram recently posted herself in this dress and I really wanted it. She says it is easy to throw on and make yourself look put together. Sign me up. It comes in 7 colors and it is truly so cute. I am ordering one for myself.

THREE. I love when others share good wine or beer recommendations and I am here to share one with you all I don't drink a lot of beer, but when I do have one, I prefer sour and gose, but still grab a brown or blonde sometimes. 

Last weekend when we got back from Elko, we went to a new-to-us Chinese place and I ordered this sour. It was soooo good. I wasn't sure if the marshmallow flavor would ruin it, but it does not. I am now on the search for this beer. If you find it, do yourself a favor and grab some.

FOUR. The girls start school on Monday and we needed to get them new lunch boxes and bento boxes. I searched for some online, but after comparing prices, we found that the stainless steel bento boxes were the same price whether we ordered them on Amazon or Pottery Barn Kids. Now the actual lunch boxes were cheaper everywhere else, but the girls just really wanted these ones, so we grabbed them as well. 

And we got them the stainless steel bento boxes versus the plastic ones for longevity and easier cleaning.

We did get them the lunchbox with the built in cold pack. And no we did not get them personalized. Their backpacks are personalized though.

FIVE. Weekly funnies.







Have a great weekend. I am linking up with A Little Bit of Everything.

  2. I love the dress you chose for the girls, so pretty!!! I shared a pair of ballet flats today that may work? They are BOGO 50% off! Perfect, since you need 2 pairs. That black dress looks effortlessly chic, love. I ordered Zoe a pottery barn water bottle for 4K. I hope it gets here today or tomorrow, she starts Monday!

    1. I did see those. The glitter ones are only in toddler size. I am looking into the blush ones as long as they match enough. I am picking up the dresses today. Pottery Barn is expensive but they have the cutest things that really do last.

  4. That dress is precious - perfect for the wedding!!!
    School time already! ... its funny because back in the day LONG LONG AGO - it was a big thing to NOT have anything wiht your name on it because a stranger could call it & as a kid, you'd go to them because they knew your name. That made sense really - but it may be why I love everything monogrammed & personalized now - HAHA GIVE IT TO ME NOW!

    1. I really hope it looks cute on them. I pick it up today. I totally feel the same way about things being personalized. I never had that as a kid, but now all things have to have their names on it to not share and know which one is yours. It is weird. I love things that are personalized now, but I do worry on my kids.

  5. OMG that last meme - so true!! Back when I was working for corporate, I had to use most of my vacay days to take the kids to the doctor, do stuff at their school, and get stuff done around the house that I didn't have time to do because I was working so much. That one really hit home. Haha.

    I love that dress for the girls!! That will be absolutely perfect for a wedding!

    1. I have been there and was shaking my head. That is why I posted that. I knew a lot could relate to that meme.
