Well, I am still trying to digest that Summer is in full swing. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely L.O.V.E. this time of the year, but it feels like time is just soaring by! I hope you had a special day celebrating our independence. Mine was a day I will always remember as joyful! It was day that was very relaxing and comforting. I spent it with my family and friends. Rather than taking the little ones out to the busy crowds, we celebrated in our own backyard with a good ‘ole American BBQ and fireworks in the street. They were all legal, I swear (wink, wink).
What better to end a spirited week than sharing some of my latest favorite goodies I’ve been enjoying with all of you! Happy July and T.G.I.F., Peers!!
Santa Barbara Mango and Peach Salsa
Seriously, this is my latest food obsession paired with the homemade chips from Whole Foods! It’s embarrassing how much I indulge in this salsa… I served this on the 4th at our BBQ and the combination of the mango, tomatoes and peaches makes you think this salsa was made for Summertime. I buy mine at Fresh and Easy though you can find it at most other grocery stores.

Backyard String Lights
Who wouldn’t want to enjoy a Summer night with good company and patio lights like these in your backyard? I just purchased some to dress up my back patio. My daughter is going to have a backyard campout birthday and I know these will look A-mazing for my little starlet. I found mine at Target for only $12.99. World Markets also has a great selection.

Destined for Greatness Gym Bag
I have had this gym bag in black for a few months now and still think it’s one of my best lululemon purchases…aside from their yoga pants of course. My previous bag was also from lululemon and though it was cute, it didn’t hold all of my amenities and therefore wasn’t quite up to par. However, this one meets all of my high gym standards and more, hence the “Destined For Greatness” name. It is waterproof, has interior and exterior pockets, and pockets inside of pockets! It has a separate compartment for a laptop or iPad, shoes, water bottle and yoga mat. It holds everything you need. A fun perk is that the interior is conveniently labeled for your dirty unmentionables, keys, shoes, etc. Just incase too many pockets overwhelm you, they map it out right on the bag. Seriously, they couldn’t have made it anymore convenient. In case you missed my goal setting post, here is another reason I heart Lululemon.
