Happy Shark Week!

Its been a while since I last posted, this summer has been filled with so much fun jammed packed into just a few short months. By short, i mean it felt like just a few days ago it was june and now somehow its already august?!

Six weeks of my summer was spent working as a camp counselor. I have worked at a camp before but I was a lifeguard/swim instructor and was never around the kids for 9 hours a day. This was probably one of the most eye-opening experiences of my life. I learned so much about being patient, organized, sensitive, and a better communicator. Having sixteen 4-5 year olds in my group I really had to be understanding that they were not always going to be on time to their activities, but thats okay because camp is about having fun not rushing around. So many challenges came up throughout the six weeks but I was patient and had to deal with them in an extremely sensitive matter. I'm not sure if I will go back next year but it was definitely a great experience.
how cute is this?

he looks so happy!

my little divas!

In between working at camp, I was also preparing for a move! I moved into the house I will be living in at school. I FINALLY feel like I have everything organized here and I am loving it. Only one of my roomates is living here now and so far we've had some adventures, to say the least!

As if my summer wasn't already busy enough I also work at a restaurant part time and do a lot of babysitting. Somehow though I still have time to enjoy my summer and hang out with my friends.
boating with the fam!
Even though I haven't had too much time to go to the mall (even though it is walking distance from my new house) I have found a new love for online shopping whether it's Lilly, Jcrew, Ralph Lauren, or Vineyard Vines!

Here's just a few of my new purchases!
Hunter Wellies (can't wait for some rain!!)

Vineyard Vines Tote in barefeet (perfect schoolbag!)

Lilly Callahan shorts (haven't worn them yet...still waiting for the perfect time)

As for today I will be attending my best friend MH baby sisters baby naming party! I am so excited, the theme is pink and green and it is on a boat! Hopefully the weather will hold for Lila's special event! I will be wearing a Lilly dress and a pair of espadrilles!

this is the dress I will be wearing tonight!

I hope everyone is having a great summer, and hope it isn't going as fast as mine is!
