Heat Wave


The weather here has been crazy hot lately! Temps in the 90's and high humidity. And we are freaking loving it. It helps that one of my best friends -- that so conveniently happens to live in my neighborhood -- has THE most amazing pool. We've been spending all our time there or on our back porch with the water table. We've only been going inside for naps or grocery store runs, mostly to stock up on fresh fruit. Pretty sure Hadley could eat a watermelon a day, that must explain why I loved it SO MUCH while pregnant. Watermelon was literally like my crack this time last year.

Last Friday night we had a BBQ over at our friends house. We did steak tacos (this marinade is so so good) on the grill along with fresh guac and salsa. And margs. Always margs. After we stuffed ourselves silly, we made our way out of the heat and into the pool. Well, the heated pool. They keep the temp up around 80 degrees! This was Hadley girl's first time in ANY pool, so the fancy camera had to come out.



Nick had her put her feet in during dinner and she was already so excited. We couldn't get in the water fast enough. I'm just going to apologize now for the overload of pictures coming your way...







Don't mind that last picture with the gray hair, I spent the afternoon getting that fixed up, ha!

We headed back to the pool on Monday for a girls afternoon with more guac and more margs. We are on a Skinnygirl kick right now - we just add a bit more tequila, a splash of soda water and a squeeze of lime and it is SO good. I bought this float on Amazon so Hadley could have her own space in the pool, she loved that so more than me with my death grip on her. Sunscreen makes her slippery! The float is pretty good quality for the price. I threw some extra bath toys in there that we had and that gave her something to hold on to and play with.

Her little smiles just say it all. She is most definitely a water baby! And thank goodness, because that will make our swim lessons that start next Friday much more enjoyable ;) With all of the time I'll be spending in the water this summer, I've started a new swimsuit collection. Bring on the one pieces! Partly because my body isn't quite where I thought it would be one year post baby (oh well, life and I love ice cream) and mostly because they are so in style right now, there are SO many cute options out there! I've rounded up a few of my faves below (just ordered this and this, each under $35).

Tomorrow is my birthday (!!!) and we're headed to Chicago for the next couple of days. And then we get to celebrate Nick's first Fathers Day on Sunday! Going to be a pretty dang good weekend. Hope yours is, too!

  3. These pictures! So sweet. I love that Hadley is a water baby. I've determined that I'm not destined for a one piece, lol. All the ones that I try on for weird, so I'll be the tankini mom some day, lol. :) Hope you have a great weekend of celebrations, happy birthday!

  4. How precious are these pictures of Miss Hads first time in the pool?! Yes to all the watermelon and a Skinny Girl kick is always a great idea! We got Serena one of those floaties that has a little canopy on top to shield her from the sun as well, and girlfriend has a ball splashing around in it. Target for the win of course! Happy Friday and HAPPY BIRTHDAY sweet friend <3
