11 Summer Loves

1.) Schmidt's deodorant. I started using this a few weeks ago and I couldn't love this more! As someone who is go, go, go 12-16 hours a day, I was finding myself needed a strong deodorant, but I always found myself not smelling the best after a long day. I started my all natural search very skeptically, but I instantly noticed a huge difference. No smelling and even less sweating! Amazing!

2.) Gardetto's. The ultimate road trip snack. I ate enough in June to last me until our next road trip.

3.) Iced Mocha with almond milk. It's like eating a candy bar.

4.) Meatless Monday's. So, after an upsetting trip to Yellowstone and viewing firsthand how horrible people actually are to animals, I've taken a pledge to eat less meat. I'm now eating completely vegetarian anywhere from 3-7 days a week. This past weekend we spent a lot of time out with family and I ate a lot of rich food that contained meat. My tummy was really happy for meatless Monday (and Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday).

5.) These are my fave tanks to wear all summer long. I have one in every color! They're great for going out or for just around the house.

6.) Scott Tubeless Toilet paper. I cannot stop talking about how much I love this toilet paper. During the summer's, I was used to going through at least a roll of toilet paper per day (maybe a day and a half). We had to buy so. much. tp (and it was not the cheap stuff). In April, during my going green initiative around our house, I purchased this tp simply because it was tubeless and better for the environment. I was shocked how big of a difference it has made in our toiletry budget. This summer, those rolls of tp are lasting a lot longer (days instead of hours), saving us quite a bit of money, plus it's actually good toilet paper. I am sold!

7.) Melissa and Doug play Keurig. I saw this at Target and couldn't pass it up! The kiddos love it and we had an impromptu Coffee Shop Day at daycare.

8.) We upgraded from the little plastic pools to this inflatable one.

9.) G2 has become our best friend this past week. With temps well into the 90's and kids that are prone to heat exhaustion, the minis needed something extra to help with hydration. While I don't like my kids to drink their sugar, G2 has slightly less sugar and helps in the summer heat.

10.) Amazon Prime Day. We rocked Prime Day. Now to sit back and wait for the way too many packages to arrive.

11.) I've taken the time to introduce the minis to some of my musts in TV, movies, and music: Meet Me In St. Louis, Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken, White Fang, The Cutting Edge, Angels In The Outfield, The Eighties (on Netflix), Bob Seger Greatest Hits, AC/DC, and Michael Jackson. It's been a good summer.
