School’s out! Woo Hoo! Bring on Summer! And OK fine, we’ll even take the well-chosen summer reading with joy. I hope these weeks are treating you well, and that all the joys of the season are coming in plenty! As for home shopping joys? Crate & Barrel is having a flash sale through Sunday, June 9th on outdoor. Now’s a great time to stock up on piles of favorite pillows, and to order the set you’ve been dreaming of (this is also my favorite indoor sofa style from C&B, just in outdoor material magic, and plenty of fabric options!) And AllModern just went live with a weekend planter sale (use code: gowild for an extra 15%) if you haven’t yet gotten your garden on. The big one of the weekend?  Pottery Barn’s Summer 75% off Sale!  Plenty of great finds there, this fair trade hammered table my favorite among them! Plenty of fun favorite finds below, and plenty more on sale, many of which double well as Father’s Day gifts (just sayin’.)

It's patio time — outdoor furnishings are in order. Plus, a travel bag refresh is a must. We've got the sales, too — CB2, One Kings Lane, DWR & more.1/ 2/ 3/ 4/ 5/ 6/ 7/ 8/ 9/ 10/ 11/ 12/ 13

1/  Adidas Adilette Slides: I’m not sure what happened, but I now own these. And a cute pair of red ones too. OK, I do know: Rina, Sam and Kian flew in from Doha with gifts a plenty for the kids, including these over the top slides for AJ, which didn’t quite fit me yet (he’s gaining on me though) and next thing you know, the girls and I had slide envy. Now here we are competing for fanciest slides. Summer footwear family fun!

2/  Off-White c/o Virgil Abloh Women’s Suede & Leather Sneakers: While fully appreciating that my definition of comfort shoe isn’t mainstream (at least not in many rivers), it’s still mine. And these have my full heart, will share nothing but support with my 3 leg injuries, and are my definition of summer love. Do they cost a fortune, yes. Will I walk a million miles in them. Yes. #justified and OK, fine #sneakerbroke.  

3/  Patagonia Black Hole Pack: We flew the other day. And we will officially be re-luggaging. We’ve just transitioned in what works best. These are part of the new plan. Possibly even by the return trip.

4/  Patagonia Black Hole Wheeled Duffel: Part Deux of the re-luggaging program. We’ve had so many successful solo adult flies often with 3-children strategies. At this point though, they are so freaking travel- and even packing- independent that the new strategy, to save check-in, bag grab, and to encourage greater efficiency is going to be carry-ons only. That said for the things we do, waterproof is important, flexible even better, and duffles just work well. And now we’ll start the negotiation on who is getting which color. That will be the only tricky part of this. Wish me luck with that. Traveling with 3 kids? No problem. Selecting goods with 3 kids? AJ will be easy, “whatever you think mom is great.” The girls? That’ll be a whole other story.

5/  Centennial Rolling Cooler Green: Not sure what to get Dad? How about the Big Daddy of rolling coolers?  Seriously? How cool is he? And that color!!!

6/  Velostirrups wall-mounted bike rack and shelf: It’s just a city dweller habit: the search for the perfect wall-mounted bike rack that makes your main wheels look like a work of art on your wall!

7/  Hapao Black and White Basket Wall Art: I have just the spot for these! You too? A set of three over a long mantel that needs a little love! It’s a large space to cover well, and affordably. These are going to do the trick!

8/  Scarlett 40″x48″ Wall Mirror, Concrete: Large, BEAUTIFUL, white mirror. He obviously needs a home in all our homes. So many great places this works!

9/  Grasshopper Floor Lamp: We’ve seen so many grasshoppers in the garden already! They are amazing! Can’t help but to have this lamp on my mind!

10/  Agave Stripe Club Chair, Berry: If our love for agave and berries wasn’t strong enough, combine them in a club chair with great legs? Nothing Minnie about our giant love for this piece!

11/  Color Burst Melamine Plate: The whole site is 25% off this weekend, but this might be my very favorite pick for a little punch of subtle summer outdoor dining fun!

12/  Optics Rug, Purple and Pink: Tell me this color and graphic scheme doesn’t whisper Happy Calm? Can’t we all use a little more of that?

13/  White Steel Caddy: Anything that is this cute and helps us organize kitchen, and/or art and office supplies has my heart.
