I visited my dream store and it’s within walking distance of my home.

You all know I love eco-friendly and clean products so I was ECSTATIC when a new store called Refillism opened in our city which also happens to ship nationally! Refillism is a home and self-care store dedicated to zero waste and the aesthetics are just everything my dreams are made of so it should come as no surprise I’ve already been four times. 😂

Hip Tip: Check out my eco-friendly swap for your home that could potentially save you THOUSANDS!

Our Hip sidekicks, Nicole and Melinda, got to meet in person.

It’s not every day our Hip family gets to come together in person so when Nicole and Melinda got to meet this past month we couldn’t have been more ecstatic for them! As a bonus, Melinda even got to meet our newest Hip baby, Caleb, too! 😍 Needless to say, we all lived vicariously through them and felt like we could nearly soak up those sweet baby snuggles ourselves. 🥰

We broke out the paddleboard for summer.

I was born on the water so I’m constantly looking for a way back the second the weather warms up. Since our favorite nearby shop on the river started doing food trucks and live music on Fridays, it was the perfect opportunity to break out the paddleboard for summer.

It was also the first time I ate tacos while paddle boarding. Needless to say, I have zero regrets about my June decisions so far. 🤣

Alli’s parents came to visit her and her husband in Virginia. Since she and her Dad are big history buffs, they loved getting to explore Mt. Vernon (George Washington’s home) and Monticello (Thomas Jefferson’s home). They also did a National Treasure tour at Mt. Vernon which she said was really cool! 😍

Shane reminisced about meeting the Stranger Things cast as he binged on season 4.

If you’re a mega Stranger Things fan like most of us, then chances are you’ve already watched the newest season. It’s no surprise Shane shared this gem from a Comicon a few years back. Who hasn’t this guy met?!

 Ranger made a grand appearance to the team.

Looks like someone is giving Gary a run for their money! 😂 Recently we welcomed a new Hip sidekick, Jessica, and she shared a little mess her pup, Ranger, got himself into. Turns out Gary isn’t the only one making messes. 😆 Despite getting pink ink everywhere, we still think he’s absolutely adorable!

And meanwhile, Gary’s just been minding his business.

According to Angela, Gary seems to be on his best behavior. She says it’s too hot to act up so who knows what fall will bring. 😅 In all seriousness, he’s been an amazing companion for Angela as she recovers from recent surgery and says he has been so good and hasn’t even left her side! So sweet! 

Angela celebrated her daughter’s graduation.

Speaking of Angela, it’s been a bittersweet month as her daughter, Morgan, graduated high school. Come fall, she’ll be starting at her new college where she earned a spot on the Colorguard team, and we couldn’t be more excited to witness her new journey in life.

If you have a high schooler leaving the nest this fall we’re sending you all the love and hugs!

Hip Tip: Did you know college students can get an Amazon Prime membership FREE + tons of other perks too?!

Chelsey’s daughter had so much fun with her grandpa during their fishing derby. She took 3rd place in the casting competition and caught a total of three fish! If that’s not sweet enough, he held an umbrella over her head the entire time since it was raining. 😍 We’re all basically in a puddle over the cuteness of the picture above.
