Friday Favorites

Happy Friday! This week I've been playing catch up on my blog #itsbeenawhile and I'm back linking up with ErikaNarci, and Andrea with some of my favorites lately. 

We got a pool pass for the summer and pool days are everyone's favorite! This guy took an hour on the first day to warm up to the idea of getting in the water but now he loves it :) 

I read this book in May, and it was one of my favorites this year! Have you read it?!?! I read 5 books in May and really liked them all. My book review is here

Coconut oil is a favorite of mine especially this summer. I use it every night to take my make up off-it's great at removing it and adding extra hydration to my face. And I've recently started using it as a hair mask a few times a week (I put it in my hair about 15-20 minutes before I shower) and my hair feels so soft after it is dry. What are some ways you use coconut oil?!!? I'm always looking for more ways to use it!

 Living near one of our favorite cities is definitely a favorite of ours because we love  getting in and exploring Chicago! We've had fun exploring with our kids and spent a night downtown for our anniversary and had a blast just the two of us. So much to see and do. It's beautiful!!!

This app has become my BFF and one of my favorites this summer. It is called Strides and is an app where you can set and track goals/habits. I love to be organized, check things off a list, etc and this has been perfect for me. I set some big goals for myself this summer and love seeing my progress or what I need to be working on. 

That's a wrap! Have a great weekend!
