What I’m Loving Lately #8

Happy (almost) 4th of July Weekend!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Another fun filled holiday weekend and I am so looking forward to it.. Family, friends, food and of course lots of fun! I recently posted some yummy food/drink recipes for July 4th here.

It has been awhile since I have done one of my weekly “What Im Loving Lately” posts so why not kick off July with one of my favorite series!

Summer time brings me so much happiness (except for constantly sweating) with all of the fun events and exciting things going on. I am such a color person so being able to dress in bright colors is one of my favorite things. Obviously having fruity drinks and yummy foods is a must for summer time too. Here are a few things that I am loving:

My fellow blogging friends

I recently got to meet one of my fellow blogger friends Hannah from Loubs & Lips. She is from North Carolina and we met through the blogging world. She is the cutest person and has the kindest soul. She loves makeup and fashion and of course her dog, Windsor! She was in Dallas a couple weeks ago for a business trip and we had to do dinner! So glad we could make it work and hopfully we can do it again soon!!! ๐Ÿ™‚



Peanut Butter/Banana/Cinnamon Sandwiches


My mom used to make the best peanut butter & banana sandwiches when I was younger. I continued the tradition in college and lived off of these. Now, my husband begs for these when I am making his lunches for the week. The secret to making it even better… toast the bread first!

Just bought this one from SheInside and I am so obsessed… Everything flamingo is my motto this summer ๐Ÿ™‚

Mexican Inspired Decor

If you have ever been to a Rosa’s Cafe (mexican food), you will immediately notice all of the colorful decor they have. I have always wanted to do my kitchen exactly like that! The bright colors, serape blankets and beautiful pottery have always been intriguing. I will be doing my kitchen like this one day… ๐Ÿ™‚

Kettlebell Workouts.



I never like to stick to the same workout routine especially during the summer time. It is already in the upper 90’s by the afternoon so a lot of my workouts are spent inside at the gym. The kettlebell is a great resource that can be used for any part ย of the body. So many great workout on Pinterest here that I absolutely love. My favorite exercise is the kettlebell through the legs pictured above. You can feel the burn halfway through ๐Ÿ™‚

And this is how you can find me dressed all weekend!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

What are your plans for the 4th?

Hope you all have a safe and fun weekend!
