Guys! It is FINALLY starting to warm up. Like apparently this weekend is supposed to be 76 degrees… WHAT?!?! The winter was lovely, but I am so ready for summer to start so we can get outdoors. So what do summer lovers like me do when they live in a place that has more cold days in a year than warm ones? We get out and bask in the sun the moment it starts sun-shining.
If you ask Zoey what she wants to do 99.9999% of the time you will get the same answer. Playground. I am pretty sure she would choose the playground over going back to Disney World… She always wants the playground. So last night just before the sun went down we ran out the door and spent the evening running around Zoey’s favorite place in the whole world. The playground is walking distance from our house and so we couldn’t say no in this gorgeous weather.
My favorite moments at the playground were when Zoey insisted on going down the slide by herself with Zander. We didn’t let her haha, he is still too small and wobbly. But it always melts my heart to see how much she loves playing with him. I also loved looking over and seeing both kids cuddling up against Kris on the ground – and the moment Zander tried to eat a dandelion and Zoey freaked out because, “THOSE ARE NOT TO EAT BUDDY!!!!!!!!!!”.
When you are trying to take advantage of every moment of summer, having comfortable shoes is vital. Running around all the time with two kids and all their stuff can be tiring and I have learned the hard way that being able to move quickly and comfortably in your shoes is super important when you are out and about with babes. But I never sacrifice beauty for comfort. Call it vanity, but I think when you look your best, you feel your best. That is why I just LOVE Rockport shoes. They give you comfort and style. I told you all about my favorite pair of heels from Rockport a few months ago here (they are still my fav high heels… SO comfy). So when Rockport reached out and asked if I wanted to try some of their new summer styles, I was more than happy to partner with them again!
Now I have a new pair that I grabbed just in time for summer weather. These cute wedges are going to be taking me everywhere this May, June & July (and hopefully August and September too…. we will see). I got them on Zappos, it is just impossible to beat free returns and a 365 day return policy – not to mention fast and free shipping! The base feels like memory foam, and the way they shape to my feet… mmmmmm. I could wear them all day every day. I grabbed Kris a pair too because it is fun to be matchy-matchy. But mostly because he is on his feet more than I am with his long hours at the hospital and could use a new pair of shoes that keep his feet comfy during the long days.
I think the next place we will head with these shoes is back to Florida… The sun is saying hello to Pennsylvania here and there – but it is still being a little too shy for my taste. What are you looking forward to most about summer?
