lol at my face^^^ she was seriously about to squeeze the life out of a strawberry!

I have always loved Summer, but Summertime with a baby has been more fun than I could have imagined! Marloe is now almost 7 months, and I absolutely love the age she is right now! She is sitting up, playing with toys, eating solids, and is so talkative! But with all her energy, I have to find activities that are fun for both her and I! Each day I try to plan a little something for us to do outdoors, and picnics have been a favorite!


I teamed up with Marks & Spencer to showcase some of my favorites from their large picnic-ware selection! They have so many options for picnic rugs, baskets, drink glasses, and so much more. I loved the print of this rug, and it matched perfectly with the basket I chose!!! The rug is such thick material, and easily folds up, and makes it easy to transport! It even fits inside the basket! I love packing simple things for my picnics, like fruit, bread, cheese, and meat! Finger foods are the easiest, and Marloe loved grabbing a hold of her own strawberry to munch on! (With my supervision of course!) 

I am planning to use my Marks & Spencer picnic-ware all Summer long!!! Marloe and I usually take picnics during the day while Colten works, but I definitely want to plan some for dinner time to watch the sunset. Family time is so important to me, and so is getting outside in the fresh air! 

Not only is our picnic-ware from Marks & Spencer, but our outfits are too! I am sooo in love with this red floral dress. It is flowy, yet modest and has awesome coverage (which helps when you're sitting on a picnic rug!!) Marloe is wearing a M&S dress as well, and I can't even take the cuteness of it!!!! It is seriously one of the cutest baby dresses ever! I am definitely saving it for my next baby when Marloe grows out of it. 

So if you're anything like me, and being outdoors is your jam, I totally recommend checking out Marks & Spencer! They have a lot more than just picnic-ware, and their selection is unlike anything else! Everything is definitely of the highest quality, and design!!
