Hi friends! How is your week going? The boys and I are on day I-don’t-know here at the beach with my parents. It always feels like two weeks is a long time, but then it goes so fast when we are here. We got news from our school this week that we WILL be heading back in August in person, with lots of regulations and the kids are required to wear masks. We are going to an independent school which makes the logistics possible. However many of my mama friends received news that they would be virtual. Any news from your schools? I know this is all weighing so heavy on parents, teachers and students…
I’d love to “chat” so grab your coffee and meet me on the porch, it’s time for this week’s Front Porch Coffee Talk.

BACK TO SCHOOL ????!!!!????!!!
As I mentioned, I know going back to school is weighing on all of us right now as August is around the corner and summer wraps up. There is no ideal scenario and my heart breaks for everyone. This “When There Is No Good Choice” article on parenting during a pandemic perfectly describes the way I feel.
All we can do is keep a positive attitude and roll with the punches. It had been awhile since the weight of the pandemic had hit me and I am not going to lie- I had a good cry this week about it all.
I posted this quote on Instagram this week, and I think everyone agrees this is one rule we can get behind in 2020!
BEACH DAYS BEST DAYS
All the boys need at the beach is a shovel for digging and some characters for playing. Oh, and snacks. ALLLLLLLL the snacks. Loved capturing this sweet moment.
Look how cute my parents are with the boys playing in the water. I am so thankful for this time with them!
I shared this cute t-shirt dress in the Weekly Faves & Finds post this week, and so many of you ordered it! It’s only $15 and will be so cute for summer and also for transitioning to fall with sneakers and a cardigan or jean jacket. So when I went to order some masks for the boys for school, and it just hopped right in my cart. 🙂
BEACH STYLE- AMAZON FINDS
This Good Vibes tank that I bought that summer is back in the beach bag rotation this summer and I think I appreciate it now more than ever! There are different color options and I think it is just so cute with a skirt or shorts. Shop the tank here.
The scallops on this suit are super cute and I love the cut! I ordered a few options and this one was a keeper. Shop the swimsuit here.
I snapped this shot at the beach this week and it captures a few of my recent faves. I am loving the Kindle Reader my friends gave me for my birthday! I also read one of the beach read recommendations from my Reader Faves Beach Read Post – American Royals. And these cute gold jelly bangles are waterproof and only $10 bucks.
PROGRESS || SWEET P’s BEDROOM MAKEOVER
Before leaving town, we were able to make a few more updates to Sweet P’s room. In case you missed the last Front Porch Coffee Talk, we are giving his room a good ol’ fashioned makeover. The goals are to make it more functional and represent his personality better. Using what we have and adding what we need- I hope to have this room whipped into shape by the time school starts.
We tackled a few! So far we have crossed 4 of the 12 to-do items off. Not too bad for one week of working on it. The main thing are the desk area that we created by re-imagining some of the furniture we already had, getting a pair of matching comforters and getting the Nerf guns organized. I’m excited about getting this room finished when we get back from the beach.
To Do List:
- Workspace- DONE
- Office Chair
- Desk Lamp- DONE
- Matching Bedding- DONE
- Comfy Sheets and Pillows
- New Rug
- Smaller Dresser Between Beds
