Month in Review: June

Last Saturday of the month means it's time for another month review.  I cannot believe that I'm reviewing June.  Honestly, it feels like we were just bundled up and complaining about the cold - well, that's probably because it didn't warm up for SO long but how are we already down one month of summer?  

We summarized the house and have been enjoying anything and everything summer like.  In our very neutral house it makes my hear happy to have these pops of bright for the season.

I made the two pups in the family some homemade puppy popsicles which have been enjoyed all month.  I think at this point we have just one left in our freezer - time to make some more.

Stella rocked her cone (how fitting that it was bright?!) for about a week and did so like a champ - I kind of miss watching her run around with her cone flapping along.  She bounced right back.

We got in a handful of family dinners and more than a handful of al fresco meals.  Derek and I basically decided if there wasn't outdoor dining, we weren't interested this month including many times out on our deck.

On the dinners note, we also started back up Dining Under the Stars for the summer season in Media.  Family dinners mid week do make the weeks go by faster.

We checked out a new brunch spot - on a golf course, of course but it was delicious - I sure do love me some bellinis & eggs benedict. 

In efforts to check some things off the summer bucket list we had a great little afternoon doing some strawberry picking

We only used our tickets for one game this month which was an unusual cool night in June which made for pleasant watching even though the Phillies continue to somehow get worse and worse.

My girlfriend and I hit the Lilly Pulitzer Warehouse sale which proved to be a very interesting experience.  It was fun to try once but I'm not sure I'll be back.

On that note, Mom and I accidentally twinning in our Lilly - which actually happened a few times this month.

We had our best friends visit for a nice weekend including a fiesta, lots of cocktails, lots of catching up and lots of laughs.

We had a nice visit to New Jersey to visit Derek's family and friends.  While visiting we also enjoyed a nice day in the sun.

We met up with my parents and brother to go to a fundraiser for the local arboretum.  We love ourself some charity events and this one was a great time.

I started sharing some of my summer looks.  Dressing for the sun is so much better than dressing for the snow in my book.

To round out the month we celebrated father's day which included a few BBQ's and a day on the golf course.  My first time on the golf course - let's just say I probably won't be playing a full 18 holes again, 9 is more my style.

  6. I prefer dressing for spring and summer. Yeah, you have to think about shaving more often, but I hate shopping for pants and jeans. You often have to try on five or six pairs before finding one that fits, no matter what you think your size is.

  7. What a great month you had! I can't believe June is practically over. All your outfits are so cute and SO summery!! Hope you're having a great weekend:)

  8. I am dying to go to the Lilly warehouse sale!! I bet it is insane. I really want to make my boys some puppy popsicles. I bet they would love them!
