Sam’s first fourth. Say that 10 times fast. ;)
It was a fun one! We headed over to Zack’s parent’s house for a BBQ and some corn hole (love that game!), and I made it as TIU-approved as possible. I had an “open faced” hamburger and lots of yummy watermelon for dessert! Lately, I have noticed I was depriving myself of the calories I need to feed Sam, so I’m also making extra sure that I’m eating enough for not only myself, but for little Sam to thrive, too. More on that this Thursday at Healthy Habits!
There were actually no fireworks this year, and I was more than okay with that! When we got home, our neighbors were doing their “grand finale” so we watched that. It was so pretty! I like fireworks, I do. Just, from afar. It’s safer there. ;)

I hope you all had a great holiday weekend and are feeling refreshed and ready to kick butt this week! I actually wrote out a meal plan for the first time since, ever, so I’m excited to follow that! Happy Monday, friends! :)
What did you do for the 4th?
What brand are your favorite jean shorts? I know everyone has a pair!
Best food you ate this weekend? Me? Watermelon. I just really love watermelon.

You look great, btws!
For the 4th, I ran a short race, went to brunch with friends, watched HOURS of American Ninja Warrior with Austin, and then hung out with friends. My SIL just told me that they are expecting their first baby, so that was a little bit of exciting news to get that day!
Haha that sounds like an awesome 4th! Love that you watched hours of american ninja warrior- that show’s pretty awesome. And YAY for your SIL! So exciting!!!

I’m really loving my J Crew and Old Navy shorts this year, I snagged both in CRAZY sales!
Our 4th was spent in Shreveport, LA, and then the rest of the weekend was spent relaxing. I love these 3 day weekends!
I love j crew chino shorts!! And yay for finding them on super sale!! :) Sounds like you had a fun weekend :)
You are seriously inspiring! I love your fashion/style and how super adorable you are. I don’t have a baby yet but hope to start trying in the next year or so. You have given me the motivation I need to get my body strong & healthy before I start making a little human. Keep being awesome! So glad I found your blog!!
Oh my gosh, you are the sweetest!!! :) Thank you so much! I’m glad you found my blog too!! Welcome!

I absolutely love your hair! I have been secretly admiring it the whole time I’ve been reading your blog ;) I would love to know how you do it or your go to products. I feel like if I had the right technique I’d be able to get mine to look like that :)
I don’t have a favorite pair of jean shorts!! Tragic, I know. I’ll be reading everyone’s suggestions. I spent the 4th with my boyfriend and my sister and her boyfriend! Fireworks and pools were involved! My favorite summer food is watermelon too! I like to sprinkle a little salt on mine.. :)
Aww thanks girly! :) I just wash it at night and then I let it air dry and usually just throw it up in a low bun and sleep with it like that. In the morning it’s wavy because of the bun and I have lately just been either letting it go like that, or spraying it with a little bumble & bumble surf spray and scrunching it with my fingers. Super low maintenance and easy peasy! :) I might do a video tutorial on it? But I feel like it’s just too simple haha oh and I only wash it 2-3 times a week! I like it best when it’s a few days unwashed! As for your 4th, it sounds so fun!! I have been dreaming of a pool! I need to get in one ASAP!
Leslie @ With Love, Leslie
I would definitely read/watch that tutorial!! lol! I can’t wait to try your method, I hope it works :)
