June's Favorite Things

Here are a few of my favorite things from June.




1.  This sweet picture of my Charlie man.  It doesn't get more adorable than a little guy pushing a miniature shopping cart.  (And at the end of the video he's running towards a package of frozen chicken nuggets).  I've been loving Charlie's afternoon ritual this past month.  When he wakes up from his nap, he peaks his head out the door, sees me, and comes running out saying "Momma!!!".  So sweet.



2.  The Dressmaker.  I wish it could've been a chapter longer, but this was a great book.  I'm a sucker for stories about the Titanic. 



3.  The Double Braid:  If I leave my hair down in this humidity, I have a good 3 minutes before my hair turns into a fro.  This double braid is so simple, and I do this hairstyle pretty much every day.



4.  Yes, this was included in my Favorite Things list last month, but I couldn't resist.  Noel and I are officially caught up on all 5 seasons of Parks and Rec. It's THE best show ever and I'm actually feeling a little sad that we're all caught up now (in my best Pitch Perfect imitation.."getttt aaaa lifffeee").  But seriously, I can't wait until the fall for Season 6, and if you haven't seen an episode, start tonight!!!



6.  Noel being home!!  He doesn't travel as much in the summer, so we've taken full advantage of him being home.  We had a great time in DC and at the beach this month.

June's been a great month!  I hope you've a good one.

And now it's your turn to link up.

1.  Link to your actual Favorite Things post.

2.  If you have an old post you want to use, that's totally fine!!  Just make sure you link back to my blog in some way.  (You can grab a Favorite Things button on the sidebar if you'd like)

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Well looks like I better pack Floyd's bags! He eats twice a day, loves long walks and ice cubes. And peanut butter. And sleeping.

Kristen said...

Oh my goodness! I am in love with Charlie's immediate reaction yo spotting frozen chicken nuggets!!! So precious and hilarious. Ok that book has been on my list for months! It seriously needs to stop being on hold for the e-book...or I just need to request the hard copy ;)

We started Parks and rec today...we laughed out loud the whole time!!

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

I wore the wrong sized clothes for a long time simply because I was shopping in the wrong stores. I was shopping in places where tops were made out of skin-tight material that would make me super self conscious. Also, I made the mistake of thinking that if I was size xyz at one place then that was my size elsewhere as well. Once I started shopping for clothes a little more often (a couple of years ago), I started to learn more of what I liked and how I wanted my clothes to fit. :)

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

I need to try that double braid! And Charlie with the shopping cart - too cute!

B said...

Glad to see you got to spend some family time all together. That pic of Charlie pushing the shopping cart is too cute!

Care said...

Mini things and mini kids just make me giggle! That video is so cute- and the little flowers.. haha!
I'm with you on parks and rec. great show!
