It's been a little over a week since I shared our Summer Bucket List on the blog... and we're already making some good progress. Last weekend, we drove to the shoreline for lobster rolls

Connecticut-style, of course.

On Sunday, we celebrated my husband's birthday... and then we spent part of the afternoon at the playground. It filled my heart with joy to see the kids so happy... especially on the slide.

Life's little things, right?

As if that wasn't enough, my parents took the kids for a few days this week and they had the time of their lives. Since we didn't have to worry about sticking to our normal kid-centric routines, my husband and I went out to dinner twice this week. I took the above photo of the rainbow on the way home from dinner on Tuesday night.

We have another busy weekend with a birthday party to attend and Father's Day on Sunday... so lots more fun ahead!

Before we jump into it, here's a new batch of Tidbits for you to read when you find the time.


  1. My husband and I watched this movie not too long ago and found it absurdly hilarious. If you liked Best in Show, then you should definitely check it out.

  2. I shared photos of my spice jar reorganization project on Instagram. These are the glass jars I used.

  3. It's been a long time since we've been to Philadelphia... so ordering authentic cheesesteaks from Goldbelly makes it so easy to pull off an epic birthday surprise.

    By the way... You don't have to order cheesesteaks. Just order whatever food will help you relive your favorite food memories!

  4. So, sometime around June 1st, I realized that I don't have very many pieces appropriate for summer in my wardrobe right now. To remedy that, I figured I'd start small... with socks. So I ordered these and these.

  5. Then I thought I deserved some new tops from my new favorite brand. I ordered this striped top and this fleece. (I wore this fleece when we went to get lobster rolls.)

  6. And then I realized I needed a new bathing suit. I'm self-conscious about my stomach area and the backs of my thighs, so I ordered this bathing suit top (in Deep Sea Mixed Diagonal Stripe) and this bathing suit bottom (in Deep Sea Navy). I finally feel comfortable in a swimsuit again!

  7. I finally finished this book and am currently reading this one.
