Thoughts for Thursday: Sweet Summertime

Happy Thursday!! I hope you will join us again for another Thoughts for Thursday Link up! Just grab the button below and link up at the bottom.

Thoughts for Thursday

Only two more days until the official start of summer! Of course it's already in the 90s here this week so I would say summer has already made it's entrance here in Maryland. (that's not a complaint, I'm happy for the warm weather after our long winter ;)

I picked up this pom pom cover up from Old Navy a few weeks ago and it's been perfect for our pool trips.


I got a medium because I want it to cover the bump all summer but I probably could have gotten away with a small normally.   It makes the belly look extra fluffy.

Miller needed a new beach towel so I turned to my favorite place.  Pottery Barn Kids.  This cute guy this be arriving any day now... and yes it will be monogrammed.



If you have a Party City near you and are looking for cheap beach or pool toys this is the place to go! Everything in their beach/pool toy section is between $0.59-$3.00 which means if they lose it you won't be upset!

Both of these below are only $0.99 for  set


We purchased new deck furniture and I'm obsessed.   We went with the Strathwood Griffen Collection from Amazon after I spent many hours pouring over the reviews. (I'm a review junkie) We got the sofa, 2 chairs and the coffee table in the natural.  We spent last Friday night out there just hanging out and listening to music and it seriously felt like we were on vacation.   If you're in the market for new deck/patio furniture I highly suggest this set.   The prices were great and you can't beat the neutral colors.  We did purchase the covers for all the furniture which we keep on it when we're not using at the suggestion of other reviewers. 


  








I have this thing for fun wine glasses in the summer.   My sister gifted me this wine glass below for my wedding shower 5 years ago- can't believe it's been that long- and I try to use it every chance I get. 

I am not going to lie I am sad to be missing another summer enjoying summer drinks!  Even though I had Miller at the end of June you don't really get to enjoy alcohol with a newborn and no sleep.  I am dying for a Summer Shandy or a Blue Moon...


I've already asked Kyle to buy a case and store it until November so I can enjoy some post baby! 


Now it's your turn!

  8. I missed alcohol in the summer too with my pregnancies! Have you tried non alcoholic beer--- It takes the edge off, I think. Becks is good... or I just had lots of club soda with spritzes of juice.

  9. That outdoor set is fantastic! I've never thought to browse furniture on Amazon, but clearly that was a mistake!! And you got a killer deal, outdoor furniture is like bonkers expensive!

  10. I love that cute cover-up!

    The new furniture is exciting...my grandmother passed us a really nice wicker couch. It is in need of a fresh coat of paint and updated (aka non 1960s) cushions, but otherwise is in great shape!

  11. Love your new outdoor furniture! I agree - summer really does call for cocktails. I picked up some Becks NA a couple weeks ago because I wanted a beer so badly. It was really tasty and almost satisfied the beer craving.

  12. haha, I bought the SAME coverup...I should have ordered the medium, I think I'll be sending it back! I ordered my regular size b/c a friend said it had plenty of space....not for this big belly! And I'm doing a name post too! I haven't even read yours but just scrolled to see what you were thinking...I LOVE picking out names!

  17. Okay so I'm obsessing over your deck furniture. I love it!! I just can't bring myself to spend the money. I'm such a diy type person when it comes time to invest in furniture. It could still be the college kid in me;) haha

  18. Love that cover up! Can't believe it's Old navy! Do you have any Lolita wine glasses? If not look them up. They're hand painted and all have a theme. You're looking too cute!
