My Summer Swoon List

Is it me, or did Monday roll around reeeeealllly fast (not to mention August!)? As much as Babygirl loved being an only child last week, we were all thrilled our Son was home from camp. And since temps were in the triple-digits, beyond thrilled that our newly replastered pool was open for business! I spent an afternoon styling our new bookshelves too, so I’m excited to share those with you tomorrow. Here’s a peek:

We also took the kids on a surprise adventure yesterday!

We rode the train to the city (yay for air conditioning!)

And ended up at the American Airlines Center for the Circus!!

The elephants were all our favorites.

Babygirl is now plotting how to run away with the circus.

I’m slightly obsessed with my new InstaGram App!

But, today I’m hanging with the girls at Swoon Style & Home! Jamie and Shanna asked me to share what’s making me Swoon this Summer, and I was happy to oblige. After all, it’s my favorite season. At least until mid-August, when I start thinking that Fall is my favorite. Can you guess what my picks are?

Here’s a clue to one of them!


Hop over to Swoon Style & Home and find out the others!
