Fourth and Faves

Hi friends! Happy Friday! Hope you’re having a lovely morning so far and have some fun plans for this weekend. Happy early 4th to my American friends, and late Canada day to my Canadian friends. :) It’s been a whirlwind of a week, and I’m so glad the it’s winding down and we get to spend some time together as a family. I’m feeling much better -thank you again so much for all of the get well wishes!- and after my roundup of doc appointments, things have settled down for now.

This is where I usually share my faves from the week (eats, reads, fashion and beauty fun, and viewing entertainment) and my top fave is completely out of the ordinary: we got an AC unit for our room. Like many places in San Diego (since it’s so temperate here most of the year), our house doesn’t have AC. I’ve been uncomfortable and hot sleeping, so we ordered a window unit from Amazon and transformed our room into a nighttime arctic tundra. I slept the best I’ve slept in 3 weeks!!! We got one for Liv’s room, too, and wow, it feels so good to sleep with blankets again haha. And you know you’re getting up there on the age ladder when things like AC units make you insanely happy. 

Some more faves from the week and around the web:
