Five on Friday

Happy Friday! Finally, right? What a strange week it has been since the 4th of July fell on a Wednesday. Is it just me or is this year just flying by? How is it July already? We are halfway through the year. Crazy.

This summer has already been filled with SO many activities and weekend trips that I haven't really gotten a chance to unpack and the laundry keeps piling up. We have a 2 week trip to Nebraska in a few weeks to see my husbands family and they finally get to meet Mackenzie, so I know I have a lot to do beforehand and I'm trying to find the time to get anything done around here! I know I only have one child, but how does one get all the things done?! Tips are always appreciated, mamas!

We had some big news in the family on the 4th-- my brother-in-law got traded from the Reds to the Dodgers, which means we will be able to go to a lot more home games! My husband and I are pretty excited about it.  Turns out, this weekend they play the Angels which is pretty close to our house! I need to just start buying generic baseball gear, because now I have Tampa Bay, Cubs, and Reds gear that I most likely will never wear again. I keep telling myself, "generic baseball stuff from here on out."
Now, let's jump into my Five On Friday: Friday Favorites...

[1] Currently obsessing over rompers. Anytime I browse shops online or when I go to the mall, I have been looking for the perfect romper. I've never owned one before but I feel like now is a good time to hop on that trend... I know, I'm a little late to the party.

[2] Our Bedtime routine. Kenzie usually goes down between 8:30-9 and she plays until she gets sleepy.  Once she goes down, I catch up on my TV shows. I am currently loving The Bold Type.

[3] Since it has been so hot lately, my husband and I have been craving Acai bowls as a snack/light meal. We have been frequenting Nektar which is a yummy juice bar near our home. They can get pretty pricey so I plan to start making my own soon. We have been going out of town so often that I haven't wanted to go to the store and have everything spoil. So once we get back from our Nebraska trip, it's game on!

[4] We have been spending as much time in the pool with Kenzie, since she of course loves the water! And it really tires her out and I noticed she sleeps so much better through the night when she goes for a swim. That's a win for me! She loves this pool float because she can kick and splash and play and it beats holding her the entire time, which could get tiring. I also love that it shades her so she's not directly in the sun the entire time.

[5] Since we will be heading to baseball games the next few weekends, I knew I had to keep my baby girl as cool as possible. I purchased these cooling towels before our river trip so that I could keep her cool while on the boat.  I also used it while she took a nap in the boat. (I snuck in a nap too!-- Don't mind my super white skin!)

What are your summer plans?
