First of all, I just want to say that I'm pretty sure I'm living on the surface of the sun. IT'S. SO. HOT. Secondly, I bought this beautiful floral dress on sale from ModCloth last week. Swoon! It's light, flowy, and so perfect for this insanely hot summer we're having here in the 'Sip. The lining of the dress only hits mid-thigh and the outer layer is sheer and airy. If I could get away with it, I would probably wear it every day.

It's been almost a full year since I've had vibrant hair. I got sick of the maintenance last year and decided to color it back to a natural hue. In general, the maintenance wasn't that bad. I was just too tired and pregnant to keep it up. However, I started reeeally missing it a few months ago and finally talked myself into bringing it back. Oh, loveliest unicorn hair, how I have missed you so!
Last time I joined the bright side, I posted about some ways to increase the longevity of vibrant locks. So if you're trying to get a taste of the rainbow, check out that post here for tips and tricks.

After putting my sweet Brooks to bed tonight, I finally had some time to do a little blog surfing. It's one of my favorite down-time hobbies. Unfortunately, it's something I don't get to do as often as I used to. So when I do, I just have to share some of my favorite findings. Enjoy!
1. How cool are these DIY neon triangle photo frames?! Get the project instructions here.
2. I'm loving this week's Sister Style by A Beautiful Mess! Elsie's skirt is too cute.
3. Have you heard about the new makeup trend, "strobing"? Read about it here.
4. Keiko Lynn shares Urban Decay's Matte Revolution lip colors, and I think I love all of them!
5. I started salivating when I stumbled upon this cheesy chicken stuffed peppers recipe. I'll definitely be making this soon!

Length approximately 26 inches
Weight 16 pounds
Eats pureed fruits & veggies, breast milk, and formula.
Loves rolling over onto his stomach.
Hates not knowing how to roll back onto his back.
Learning to sit up, laugh, and make new sounds.
Brooks turned 5 months on the 2nd, but I decided to combine his monthly update with Independence Day since we did a little celebrating. Even though most of our 4th of July was completely rained out, we did manage to find a break in the weather to have a little fun.
I dressed B up in the most patriotic gear I could find... because why not go all out, right? I just couldn't pass up that adorable "Mommy's Little Fire Cracker" shirt! Too cute. Anyway, we took him to the park where our town has an annual music and fireworks festival type thing. We strolled around, got snow cones (my flavor of choice is always piña colada - yumm ), and let Brooks swing for a little bit. Also, if you follow me on Instagram, you can see me trying to chase baby ducklings. Those suckers are fast!
After leaving the park, we went to hang out with friends and grilled dinner. Since Brooks has an early bedtime, we missed out on fireworks this year. Maybe next year he'll be old enough to stay up just a little bit later.
