TOP TEN SUMMER FUN LIST

There's lots of things that I'm wanting to do this summer, so I thought it'd be fun to make a list...you know, so I don't forget what I'm supposed to do for fun :)

1. To kick off our summer, we're headed to DISNEY WORLD for a few days!  I can't wait to experience the magic again!
2. Hopefully there will be lots of swimming days at the pool with friends.  All of you friends with pools, can we come swim???
3. Visits to the library.  I've missed our reading times at the library since I went back to work...we plan to get lots of visits in this summer!
4. The living room wall is still bare...Hopefully I will gather my wits about what to do with this massive blank wall.
5. Catch up on blog reading...I'm so behind on my favorite blogs. I miss these people that I barely know.
6. Organize.  I'm constantly trying to simplify my life.  I want to get our house organized!
7. Do daily art projects with Anne.  I want to spend more time creating things and have less screen time.
8. Blog.  I'm tired of telling myself I'm gonna be a more consistant blogger...I'm just gonna do it! 
9. Discover new places.  There are so many cool little towns in MS.  I want to go exploring!
10.  Camping.  We'll be doing a few weekends of this hopefully.  We love to camp!


What are you doing fun this summer???
I'd love to know :)

OUT TO SCHOOL...ONE LAST TIME

There's one hundred and four days of summer vacation....oh wait...I think it's more like seventy and we've been watching too much Phineas and Ferb.  I'm exhausted from a busy week of school and being sick, but so thrilled to think of what this summer holds.
Here's what Anne wore on her last day of school. 
dress, target//shoes, saltwaters
I can't wait to see what we can get into :)
Happy summer to you all!

FAMILY TIME

bike riding at sunset
  The weather has been absolutely gorgeous the past couple of evenings.  We decided to take a family walk yesterday to enjoy it, and I must say it was one of the nicest times I've had in a while.  Anne rode her bike which meant we were walking quickly to keep up with her, but it was so nice to have casual conversation with Michael, visit with neighbors we passed, and just take in the beautiful area we live in.  

I love when we choose to spend time together.

SUN DRESSES AND SIDE BRAIDS

That will probably be a staple for me this summer.  Since it's already hitting 90 degrees here I'm getting a little jump start.  If it's already this hot, I can't imagine how it will feel in August!

outfit details: dress/click boutique, shoes/saltwater sandals, belt/thrifted, watch/fossil, earrings/handmade, sunnies/bella bella
Although it's hot as all get out already, I am looking forward to summer.  I'm itching to start sewing some new things and spending lots of time with my sweet Anne.
What are some things you're looking forward to about summer?

DOG SITTING

Anne longs for the day that we let her have a dog.  In lots of ways I feel bad that we haven't caved, and in other ways I'm glad we haven't.  Having a dog is a huge commitment that I'm just not ready to tackle yet.  So, it's great that we get to borrow Ollie sometimes from Papa.  Anne's favorite thing is going on walks... I swear she would hook anything to a leash and walk it if it'd let her.

LIFE LATELY...I HOPE YOU LIKE INSTAGRAMS

She discovered that she can finally make it across the monkey bars without help.  She swears it's because she's five now. 
This week has been sort of a blur...I spent most of it preparing for May Day by sewing and stitching names on the 6th grade banner.  Adam finally got keys to his house, so of course we've been relishing in his excitement.  Then it was May Day and Day in the Park this weekend.  Add a sick husband on top of all that and you've got an "exciting" life!

Now I've got big plans of cleaning and getting my house organized.  
Wish me luck :)
xoxo, Dawn
