Random Recent Favorites!

Long time no blog. That's just how it goes these days.
Jumping back into the swing of things with a few recent favorite purchases I've made. 
Warning...these are all over the place! This is a crazy mix of things!

1. This Pottery Barn Kids style pool towel from Amazon for $7 cheaper and free shipping with prime!


Here it is on Amazon for $16, and here's the exact same towel at PBK for $29! We have several PBK towels and the quality is the same. There's a mermaid version of the Amazon one too!

2. This jersey swing dress from Old Navy. I have it in 3 colors and I love it. It's so light and airy on a hot day, is the perfect length, can be dressed up with a cute necklace or can be worn with flip flops around town for errands with my kids. I love it. And it's cheap!!




Up until a few months ago, M could hold the tablet in her lap for road trips and watch movies happily for hours and hours, but within the last 6 months she has started to feel a little sick on road trips when looking down at her lap (just like her mama!). We bought this mount for the car and it's actually working really great on road trips for BOTH kids. We put up T's rear facing mirror so it's angled at the tablet, and they can both watch a movie or a show together. We tested it out this past weekend on a trip to Tennessee and it worked like a charm!



I am LOVING the ease of this sunscreen stick for my kids faces and necks and ears before the pool or a playdate outside. It does go on pretty white, but rubs in very easily. The price has gone back up on Amazon, but two weeks ago I got a 2 pack for $15. I keep one in my diaper bag and one in the pool bag. It smells so good, and as a bonus it gets a 1 rating from the EWG. 


I know. This is a weird one. But if you have dogs who are prone to getting filthy outside, get one of these! We put it in our utility room off the patio where the dogs come in and out and it has been a game changer. It absorbs any water they carry in, it cleans their feet a little, and it's so durable. I wish we splurged on this sooner.
