Summer Loving

Boots No. 7 Wipes
When I stayed at Mary's house for the Royal Wedding Party, I forgot to pack my face-wash stuff. She had these, so I used them and it was love at first wipe. Since then, I've gone through about three packets. Recently, I threw them in my really junky beach bag down in Charleston, and LOVED having them handy for wiping my face after being in the ocean, or before re-applying sunscreen. If, like me, you're a lazy nighttime face washer, these are also fantastic.

Trader Joe's Cilantro Salad Dressing

Down at Folly Beach, near Charleston, there's a great little place called Taco Boy.
My family ate there every day we were at the beach, and I fell in love with the Mahi tacos, or more specifically, the cilanto lime sauce that came on the tacos. In an effort to recreate that now that I'm home, I bought this. It's not exactly the same, but it's super close, and super delish! I've used it twice for cooking since buying it on Monday, and it's in tonight's supper plans, too!

Reading by the Water

I LOVE to read in the summer.

Here's the view from the hotel where we stayed in Charleston. I'd curl up on a sofa on the porch and turn a few pages every day...after doing the same on the beach. While I was gone, DC Ladies posted a blog I wrote on great Southern books for summer.  Now that I'm back home, I have vowed to spend more time at the pool, with a book...instead of with a book on my couch! This weekend, I'll be reading the new Jen Lancaster, If You Were Here. What are you reading this summer?


My love for Kyle Chandler, the actor who plays Coach on Friday Night Lights runs deep. Like, so deep, I bought the final season of FNL months ago when it came out on DVR (before it aired on NBC) and watched it all in about 2 weeks. FNL fans - you'll love how it ends. LOVE. Anyway...Coach is in a movie this weekend, Super 8. It's Sci-Fi. I hate Sci-Fi. I love Kyle Chandler. Thus, I will go watch Super 8. What can I say, I'm brand loyal.

The Dress, The Hair, The Princess

Not that she wasn't a sight as a bride, but I think last night Catherine looked even more stunning than she did on her wedding day. LOVE her dress.

Meeting Dee!

I love that today, I'm meeting one of my blog besties, Dee, of Dee's Adventures! She's in D.C. for a wedding, so I get to give her a little VIP tour of the Capitol before lunch somewhere on the Hill. I feel like I already know Dee because we're like the blond/brunette/Vol fan/Tiger fan version of each other!

What are you loving this summer?

Your friend Dee looks like brunette Vikki from Housewives of Orange County! Ha! I had to do a double take!

I need me some face wipes, I'm so lazy after having the baby I don't think I've washed my face at night in the last ...well, I don't remember. Now I look old.

Where did you stay on Folly? We are going there in two weeks and I have never been. I think we are staying at the Tides? Is that a place? I can hardly wait!!!

That salad dressing sounds really good. The perfect thing to top off a summer salad :)

I agree with you on Catherine last night. Got your comment. I thought she looked beautiful.

Where did you all stay in Charleston.

Great summer finds!

We stayed at a Marriott by the marina, just on the outskirts of the city.

Dee Stephens said...

SOOOOO GREAT meeting you! Just what I expected! I feel like I've known you for years! Thanks for the tour, lunch and listening!(yes, I know I've already texted this).

I never fly without the Boots wipes in my big purse
