Apparently, I have a lot of summer lovin’ friends. I keep seeing #SummerDontGo and #SummerDontEnd every time I get on social media. Meanwhile, I’m sitting over here staring at my blanket scarves and boots, dreaming about decorating our front porch with pumpkins and mums. I’m itching to take the kids apple picking, bake some pumpkin bread and see the leaves change in the mountains. I’m really dying to play outside with Atlas and Andi Rose and not sweat to death.
While we did get some temperatures in the 60’s this morning (yay!!), the forecast in Georgia is still calling for highs of 90 degrees so I decided to quit daydreaming about all things fall and embrace these final days of summer. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em right?!
So I ordered this adorable summery top (solid white version here, similar version here), which I think will be cute into fall paired with a blazer. I’m a sucker for anything with ruffles and the ruffles going around the collar of this shirt totally sold me. (I also snagged this shirt and it is an adorable piece for now and again in the fall too.)
In my effort to savor the last of summer, I also bought the stuff to make a s’mores pie. I’ve made this pie a few times already this summer & it has been a hit every time I’ve made it! I’ve made several recipes from Two Peas & Their Pod and every single thing has been so so good. I recommend that blog if you’re looking for food inspiration. 🙂
The only thing better than that s’mores pie is getting a surprise kiss from your toddler and having your husband actually catch it on camera.
Atlas has been such a mama’s boy lately and I love how much he loves me (although he does ask me multiple times a day, “When is daddy coming home?” so he definitely has a huge spot in his heart for Dave too). He has been so kind to Andi Rose lately too.
Oh, Andi Rose – my sweet girl – my wild child…
Andi Rose was up last night from 1:30-3:30am. That isn’t like her – she’s actually become a really terrific sleeper. When I went in to check on her, she saw me and immediately started giggling. I wanted to be upset, but she’s just so darn cute. I couldn’t help but smile and she actually let me rock her back to sleep which was so amazing! But then she woke back up 20 minutes later and I was like, “Oh, no. I’m done now, sweetie. We can play tomorrow after 8am.” I ended up giving her Tylenol and she finally fell asleep – I think she is teething…who knows. This motherhood business is tricky.
Anyways, Atlas and Andi Rose are becoming the best of friends and I adore their little relationship. Atlas loves kissing Andi Rose before she goes to bed at night and she thinks he is the funniest person on the planet.
Those 2 little humans bring me indescribable joy (even if I am a sleep deprived zombie because of them).
So, if you need us, my crew will be at the pool or playing in the sprinkler until fall decides to arrive in the south. Just know that while I may be dressed for summer, I’m dreaming about pumpkin spice latte’s and holiday decorations and Christmas music is totally playing in my head. And oh my gosh – these booties! I’m dreaming about these booties because they are LEOPARD! Leopard freaking booties, people! It doesn’t get any better. #HurryUpFall #ByeSummer
What’s your favorite season? Summer was definitely my favorite when I was in school & it equated to time off & vacation. But as an adult, I prefer the mood that seems to come naturally with fall & the holidays. ☺️
