// Life Lately

Happy Tuesday! Thanks for the kindness surrounding my most recent post from last week. Maybe I just avoid the places that trigger anxiety, but I've been pleasantly surprised by the support and sincerity I've received since sharing the last part of our news. All of the love surrounding Toby's adoption just has my heart overflowing though. Any fear or sadness I may have had about ending one chapter and starting a new one is quickly drowned out by the kindness and support we've received. 

Now that school is out for Toby, we've been spending so much time outside! I have a pretty hard and fast rule about tv/video games during the Summer: If it's a pretty day, you have to be outside by 9am. Whether he's helping me in the garden, playing with the neighbor kids, or drawing on the road with chalk - he has to be outside. I operate under a similar rule for myself. If I'm not doing work or cleaning the house, I have to be outside. Sometimes it looks like that above: laying in a hammock. It's kind of nice, I won't lie! The rest of the time I'm usually chasing Linden around the backyard. 

We're hoping my parents' pool will be ready to go by this weekend. It's open and crystal clear, but oof it's COLD! My Summer tan is coming along though. I'm seriously covered in freckles from head to toe. I'll need to change my makeup for the season - otherwise my face might be glowing ha!

Okay - So I know y'alls help with two things! 1) Help me find an awesome bathing suit! I still have my black crochet top that I wore last year (I think...) - I need a new set of bottoms though! These hot pink ones were from GabiFresh's Swimsuits For All line years ago. It's my all time favorite fit, but I can't find one quite like it. I'm game for all types though - high waisted two pieces or one pieces. Gimme your best links!

2) I need some new tunes for my Summer playlist! Whitney and I have fallen into the habit of playing the same things over and over and over. We need some new tunes that make us want to dance and whatever. If you have an awesome playlist, share the link!

Until next time!

    Oof...that link. Well it's the "Suddenly Slim by Catalina Plus-Size Slimming High-Waisted Bikini 2 Piece Set." It comes in non-plus sizes too.

    1. I was going to reply with this suggestion too! I've purchased several colors and varying sizes of the Catalina slimming suit and it is so cute. Very similar to the one I spent $80+ a few years prior.

    2. Very excited about that, thanks ladies! I might order a couple just to try because at that price how can you not? Haha!

  4. If "Daylight" by Matt & Kim is not on your playlist, it should be! That song ALWAYS makes me want to get up and dance. :)

  5. I just wore this suit for the first time yesterday and I looooove the way the bottoms fit http://www.amazon.com/Womens-Holographic-Mermaid-Pieces-Scales/dp/B01A6B7Z9Q/ definitely recommend plus you'd make a perfect mermaid!
