Hello July!! 2017 is halfway over and is flying by, June was the fastest month yet! I've mentioned the daycare has been closed for the last week and a half and it looks like it will continue to be closed for another week or two. This has thrown most routines right out of the window which usually helps the days to fly by. Here are a few things we've enjoyed this month.
This pictures from our Disney trip this past weekend is by far my favorite, I just love the matching outfits, the bright colors, and of course the girls! We stayed at the Art of Animation Resort in an Ariel room which the girls were in love with. When I walked into the lobby there was the most amazing smell, I couldn't get over it, it was sweet and a little tropical. I have followed Spireside Candles on Instagram for a while and my immediate thought was to find their site and order this candle. They create candles for lots of different Disney scents such as Pineapple Whip, Haunted Mansion, or Belle's Library. I ordered it on Sunday and it's already en route. I'll let you know how it is once it arrives.
The sunshine!! We have been sun bunnies this month between the beach, the pool, and the local water park. We got to Sanibel around ten this day and there wasn't a soul in this shot. Henley loves the water and Macie is starting to get more brave with the breaking waves, and by waves I mean those tiny, little whitecaps there.
I have been obsessed with the sailor bows that have been all over Etsy and my Instagram feed. Being the crafty person that I am, I couldn't justify spending $10 per bow when I know I wanted a ton of them. I went to Pinterest to see if I could find a pattern and sure enough I did. I found this great tutorial from Natalie Malan and have made the girls four bows each in a few different patterns. If you can sew a straight line, this is a tutorial for you. They did take a little time, about twenty minutes each, but the end result is worth it. I've made a unicorn print, a flamingo print, and I have a colorful Mickey pattern coming up next.
I took at trip to Board and Brush with my mom for her Mother's Day gift and it was great! We made these signs (the similarity of these two signs was not planned at all!). The staff was really great, helping with every detail to ensure the end result was just as we wanted. It was a fun night out and a really great way to spend the evening with my mom. It was a little pricey at $65 per person but it was fun and you leave with a really great piece for your wall. I definitely recommend for a night out.
I have a lot I want to do in July and nothing all at the same time, we will see which wins. It's hard to actually be productive on the weekends when it's so hot out and the pool is so nice. We are entering the worst part of the Florida summer so my gut feeling is that the pool will win. Happy July and it's already Wednesday! Yay for short weeks!
