July Favorites

Thanks to Hot Spot I am on the internet and typing this as we are driving down the road. I’m still amazed by this.

We left on Friday and stopped in Omaha, NE for a day and shopped at our favorite places then on to Colorado to visit my family. My Dad is fighting congestive heart failure so it was really nice to spend time with him. Tried to spoil him a bit…bought him some yummy food and goodies (he has a huge sweet tooth), some clothes and a new recliner. Got to see my Mom and brothers. It was a nice stop and I’m glad we did it.

We spent the night last night somewhere in the middle of Kansas. We are now on our way to the Biltmore Mansion in Ashville, North Carolina. This is something that we have wanted to do for years.

Also…today is Mr. D’s birthday!!! He is 51 and we will have to find some chocolate cake and ice cream somewhere for sure.

Here are my July favorites. Enjoy and I hope you are having the best summer yet! What have you been up to?


This is definitely my favorite not just for July, but for always. I had to sneak this one in here since today is his birthday. Looking like a hot 51 year old to me!


I have an obsession with the flowers at Trader Joes! They always have the freshest and most gorgeous flowers. In my humble opinion. Ha. The other day someone else was standing there taking pictures…we just looked at each other and laughed.


I went into Ulta a few weeks ago needing something to add some moisture to my face, I felt like I was getting really dry. The sales lady there suggested this. I was a bit skeptical, but decided to give it a go. I must say that this has been the best moisturizer. I know it says a mask and you can use it for that also, but you can use it for a daily moisturizer…just put it on thin. Great under your makeup. I put it on a little thicker at night and it has helped lines get a little better. If you would like to try it you can find it here. Also, at Ulta if you don’t like it you can return it. Two thumbs up!


These have been the most comfortable shoes! I usually wear a little bit more heel so these were different for me. I am so glad that I ordered them. Got them from Zappos. They are the best company. Free shipping both ways (and it’s super fast!). I have been wearing these almost everyday so far on our trip. Comfortable from the first time I put them on and no having to break them in. You can find these here.

my fitbit

The fitbit Alta. This is the latest for fitbit and it is a wonderful size. I think they made these for ladies with a smaller wrist. I like the colors that it comes in…as you can see in the picture above I chose the teal color. Someday I plan on getting some other colors. You can change the bands out easily and there are a ton of options…you can find a lot on Amazon. The fun thing about it if you have an iPhone or Android it will buzz your wrist when you have a message and it will scroll it to you. It’s great if you are driving or if you need to put your phone on silent…you will still see your messages. I could go on and on about the things you can do with it, but I will let you check it out here.

Hope you are having a wonderful day and I will share some of our vacation stops soon!
