in an attempt to stop spending $20 on this season's "hottest sweater" every year only to find out it will last just one season because it was cheaply made, i've tried being more intentional on where i put my money in my wardrobe. for me this means spending a little more money on good quality pieces that will last for many seasons! especially when it comes to sweaters or things that i like to cozy up in year after year, nothing is worse then pulling out a sweater for season two of wearing it only to find out it's pilling or has a hole in it because it wasn't done right or shouldn't have been washed because now it can fit my three year old (anyone else remember that full house episode?).

at the beginning of summer, i shared out summer bucket list and all the fun things i wanted to make sure we did this summer. throughout the last few months, i've been ticking off the activities one by one but now that we're getting closer to the end of summer and school starting soon, i went back to check on what we all did and have to do yet.

we've had such a fun and intentional time getting all the fun in this summer but sometimes one thing gets sacrificed for another. i know there will be at least one thing on our list that won't be completed (we opted out of attending the fourth of july parade in order to spend the day on the boat) but i'm okay with it because we've had the best time so far!

what are you up to this weekend? we are taking the girls to the wisconsin state fair one last time before it's over on sunday to see the animals, eat one more deep fried snickers bar, and go down the big yellow slide one more time before it's over for the year. there's so many interesting things to eat at the fair but one of my craziest i tried (and really enjoyed) this year was the deep fried bacon wrapped stuffed green olives. on a stick of course! so strange but so delicious! hope you have a lovely weekend and here's some links i thought you'd like to check out...
