Weekly Walmart Find!

Wednesday, May 25, 2016

Hi!! Happy Wednesday!!

How has your week been going so far??
The weather here in our neck of the woods has been GORGEOUS and with some yucky rain in the forecast for later this week...we have been soaking it up and taking advantage of every sunshiney minute!!

So first- before I share my Weekly Walmart Find for the week- I wanted to give you all a friendly reminder that next Wednesday (June 1), Leigh, Erica and I will be hosting our monthly Pinspiration Wednesday Link Up!! The topic for June is to share what's on your Summer Bucket List!! This is going to be so fun!! I am going to get some input from my girls and husband and then put our bucket list together! I really hope you will join us for our FUN link up next Wednesday!!
And now time for my Weekly Walmart Find!
So I have just one "find" for you this week- but it's a good one :)
Summer is almost officially here and that means picnics, days at the baseball park, tons of time at the pool, beach, and lake...basically- life is spent outdoors! Which is why you need one or maybe a couple of these outdoor blankets!! The blanket is by the brand Mainstays, which is exclusive to Walmart.  It is 60' X 70' in size, it's water repellent and comes with an attached carrying bag! And guess what- this blanket is only $12.92!! 
I just got this blanket in the pattern pictured below...isn't it so cheerful and FUN??
I am also LOVING this patriotic pattern!! This would be perfect for 4th of July and everything in between!  Besides the two fun patterns I have pictured, the blanket comes in 4 other really fun patterns- you can check them all out here!
And last but not least :) I wanted to give you a quick little update on my search for a swimsuit! Last week, I "featured" several swimsuits that I was going to give a try- well...I gave them a try and here's the low down :)

I absolutely LOVED this tankini! The straps are adjustable, the tankini is long enough to cover my stomach and has a little ruching which helps camouflage my postpartum tummy and even though there is no underwire in the swimsuit- I felt very supported- if you know what I mean ;) So- major YES to this tankini! I am keeping it in this fun medallion pattern as well as in a really pretty solid coral color!
Both were a NO GO for me :(  

The swim skirt is SUPER cute, very well made and actually has a 5 star rating...it just did not look good on me. The small was too small and the medium just looked weird. 

The full coverage bottoms with the side ties were just "MEH." They totally fit fine...I just wasn't a huge fan of the ties. Again- these bottoms are really cute- they just weren't for me. I really am just more of a plain, simple girl when it comes to swimsuit bottoms :)

haven't received the OP Strappy Racerback Swim Cover Up yet- but I really hope it works- because I think it's SO cute, it's an AWESOME price and I know I will wear it a TON this summer!

I didn't end up ordering this one-piece swimsuit- so if any of you decide to try it out or already own it- I would love to know what you think of it!!! And P.S.- if you are on the fence about ordering it- it just went on sale AGAIN- it is now $20 down from $34.64!!

Happy Shopping :) and Hope you have the BEST day!!

  3. LOVE the blankets - so good!! We always need blankets for parks and ballparks - great find!! And I keep thinking I need to try a swim skirt - because in general I think they look really cute on people, but never have. Maybe this is the year!

  4. I love these type of blankets! I had one a few years ago, but it got left at camp and I think someone helped themselves to it. I may have to order one...or like you said maybe 2 of these! Super fun patterns!!
    Have a great Wednesday, Justine!

    1. Seriously- with all the time you spend at Emma's softball games- this blanket will be perfect for Miss Alyx to play on and have lots of picnics! I am going to get one for the pool and one to keep in the back of my car! :)

  8. I was just looking at those blankets on-line and couldn't find them for less than $20. THANK YOU for pointing me to Wal-Mart. I've got to go and see what the selection is like at my store or look on-line because I wanted one for myself and one for a gift. They seem like they would be perfect park/picnic blankets to keep in the car.
