Hello my friend! happy Friday! Hope you had a great week so far. What happens this weekend? We look forward to *and hope* to have our first family party. The pool is full of water (ahhhhh!) and you just need to make sure it’s balanced and all is well. I’ll definitely be doing a full reveal post and recap in the next week or so. In addition to pool time, I’m adding the finishing touches to Team Fit’s programming for August, and I’m looking forward to a slower weekend without planning a ton. I’d love to hear what’s going on!
Big win of the week: We are closer to Maisie and Caro in Canine Harmony. Maisie wanted to jump around and play all over Caroline, but Caroline isn’t into that. She is an old girl who just wants to relax and sleep on the sofa. We have a great dog trainer who comes in twice a week (she literally speaks the language of dogs and is very good at what she does) and she helped us teach Maisie some limits with Karu. She can smell it, but don’t jump, bite, or try to ride on its back.
Look at them and they are so cute together!
Maisie makes huge strides and, in addition to being very cute, is also very smart. With the help of our trainer, she will have excellent dog manners. 🙂
More favorites of the week:
Fitness + Good Eating:
Try this ball and band combo If you haven’t already!
The Harney Cobb salad is always a hit. It’s grilled chicken, bacon (cooked in the air fryer), boiled eggs, black olives, tomatoes, cucumbers, romaine, and ranch dressing. It is one of the meals we know everyone in the family will eat and enjoy.
We also enjoyed this huge cheese board while MIL was in town. Best lunch!
(+ different types of crackers)
It was my first time making roses from meat and I’m still on the fence about it. It looks really pretty but I feel it looks unapproachable, like you don’t want to eat it to spoil it. What is your opinion??

Fashion + Beauty:
We have a new product launch for beauty counter Coming in early August! You will love this!!
my friends in sakara Send some summer gifts. The scent of the body oil is incredible. She pushed me so hard that we have a Skara delivery coming next week – ready for some freshness and more veggies in my life.
I tried Knowle After being targeted for advertising forever. It was fun poring over the pieces and picking some new things to try this month. I got this tee,
Plus a bunch of dresses, another shirt, and a skirt. I’ll report back once I’ve tried everything. At the moment I really like it but the only hassle is that the shipping took about 10 days for the items to arrive. We’ll see if it’s a little faster for round 2. (Otherwise, I don’t think it’s worth the cost if you wait 10 days out of the month for items to arrive.) I have a referral link here $10 off the first month if you want to try it with me. 🙂
The good stuff at Nordstrom Sale is coming! I love when merchandise is flowing slowly instead of it being a clear shopping mount on the balcony lol.
Runs the house so far:
I got these shoes from Ugg for girls. I love the bright little details.
I’m also taking this opportunity to get their North Face winter jackets. Here is the one I ordered for P.
(Public access starts on the 28th and you can check out my top picks here! I recommend adding items to your wishlist and adding them to your cart as soon as possible. Things sell out quickly and I’ve noticed a few are already sold out.)
Some of my favorites still in stock:
This is a comfy cardigan. I bought one last year and lived in it fall and winter. I would wear it with pajamas to wear around the house, or wear it with a V-neck T-shirt and jeans.
These bike shorts. I love these hot yoga and strength training exercises.
This shirt is hunter plaid. I have a few Rails shirts and although they are pricey, they are always worth it. The fabric and quality are amazing and will last for years.
I have This bralette Wear it with a sleeveless top to show off a few lace details.
these Chelsea boots It would look so cute with leggings and a jacket.
these Primary pendants For a holiday gift option.
for me fave leggings ever (For workouts and life).
the love These pajamas And it has multiple groups.
face i love This blanket.
Maybe you should see How does this compare To the beloved lululemon shorts from Pilot.
If you are looking for a new bra, This is my number 1 And I’m very weird and picky about bras. I hate underwire and also need a bit of shape without being bulky thick padding. This checks all the boxes.
This chain necklace. I have a similar one and wear it all the time.
*I know everyone is posting info about Nordstrom discounts so I just wanted to add a note and say a big thank you to those of you who chose to shop through my links. It does not affect the purchase price and helps me provide for our family. Your support means the world to me. <3
