one. On our way home from breakfast last weekend Caroline made a very serious request to stop at Home Depot. I thought Matt was going to abruptly pull the truck over to give her a hug. Without hesitation he said “YES, baby girl, we will absolutely go to Home Depot!” And so we went to wander the exciting aisles of sprinkler timers, mosquito sprays, plants and more. While Matt loaded up on 18 bags of mulch the peanut gallery supervised from the cart over a box of raisins.
two. If you live in the South you know how evil mosquitoes can be during the summer months. I swear I used to spend half of our outside time chasing my kiddos with a bottle of bug spray. So when my friend Lisa introduced me to the Thermacell, a magical mosquito repellent device, our outdoor world changed! While stocking up on Thermacell refills during our aforementioned Home Depot run I came across a new Thermacell product – the Patio Lantern! Oh, happy day! We now use the lantern for outside play and use our smaller thermacell for wagon rides, picnics, park dates, etc.
three. A few weeks ago Matt took my watch to the jewelry store to get the battery replaced and when he returned home he had the best and sweetest surprise – a beautiful cross necklace that I haven’t taken off since he gave it to me!
Matt has been known to surprise me with jewelry “just because!” from time to time. How did I get so lucky?
Also, the fam caught me mid-selfie and wanted in on the action.
four. Recently we restocked Caroline’s hair bow collection. And since baby girl has outgrown her bows we went up an inch in bow size. So Caroline’s new summer outfit is a diaper and 5″ solid bow. And because her hair is slooooooooowly coming in we clip her bows to elastic headbands. You can find a full hair bow post here.
five. I received 4 more promo codes to give my friends a FREE box of HelloFresh meals! I’d be happy to send the first FOUR people to leave their email address in the comments a free week of HelloFresh to try!
Also, my favorite recent HelloFresh recipe – Summertime Pork Schnitzel! I’ve always loved shake & bake but this recipe takes it to a whole new delicious level but still keeps the prep under 10 minutes! So good. You can find the print recipe here.
Not one of the first 4 to comment but still want to try HelloFresh? Use promo code MG8GKD for $40 off your first box! That means you can try out HelloFresh for $29 and then cancel after your box arrives or keep on going.
Wishing you a weekend that looks this happy!
