Happy 4th of July weekend! The 4th is one of my favorite holidays and I’m seriously ready for some swimming and backyard BBQing with friends. In the meantime, I’m taking some time to take stock this week and sharing these thoughts with you!

FeelingLike my babies are growing up too fast. P.S. grab a tissue.

Wondering: If I’m allergic to peonies. I keep buying them and then sneezing profusely.

Eating: Summer salads. Light, flavorful…the perfect summer meal.

Coveting: the perfect block heeled, lace up sandals and a pair of vacation-ready wedge espadrilles. Its always shoes.

Waiting: For some downtime with my hubby.

Excited: to hang with The Budget Babe IRL this weekend!

Watching: Binge watching Bloodline on Netflix. Highly recommend.

Enjoying: Getting back to my blogging routine this week.

Noticing: That I’ve accumulated far too much crap and that it’s time to do some serious purging in my home.

Wishing: For more quality time with friends.

Learning: How the hell to Snapchat. You can follow me at wishes_reality:)

Wearing: A throw on and go midi dress that basically feels like a sweatshirt for my body. And its under $15.

Drinking: Coffee, water, wine, repeat.

Hoping: For good news after too much not so stellar news as of late.

Dreaming: Of a tropical getaway.

Packing: For our trip to the Oregon coast later this month.

Wanting: To find the perfect striped shirt dress. Eyeing this and this.

Reading: Ashley’s post on 15 Summer Wardrobe Essentials. Totally helped me fill in the holes in my closet for these steamy months.

Loving: Having my kids home for the summer. Sure, scheduling is harder and its not all laughs and cuddles, but they are turning into people that I truly love to be around.

Playing: With the idea of cutting bangs. Totally obsessed with Talissa Sutton’s {of Badlands Blog} hair. Thoughts? Opinions?

Missing: My family. I was spoiled with 2 weeks with them and now am feeling the void.

Observing: That this gym business is paying off. Weights are a game changer ladies.

Waiting: For fireworks. Oh how I love Fireworks.
