Happy Friday!! I just want to take a minute and say how thrilled I am that we only have a couple of lacrosse games on the schedule this weekend. That’s IT!!!!!!!!!! Of course, we have 40 bales of pine straw to spread and I’m feeling pretty thankful to have three able bodied boys in the family. :-)
Speaking of the boys, does anyone else out there have kids obsessed with the Fidget Spinner? It’s all the rage in the elementary school sector right now. Like… we had to get on a wait list at a local store and finally just resorted to Amazon.
Bestie S gave me this fun Nora Fleming tray for Christmas and then gave me the birthday cake topper for my birthday! I LOVE that it holds a candle. I have already had a few occasions to use it as well. Now, I can’t possibly post this pic without a quick reminder about how yummy these Cheddar Jalapeno Crackers are. They always go over fabulously and I keep a few rolls in the freezer at all times.
My friend “Lori” hosted a birthday dinner for her son, husband and little old me last month. I LOVED that she put Pisces on the cake rather than all of our names. Cute idea! (I almost never spell out my friends names but the one time I did a while back I spelled it wrong. Hence why Lori is in quotes. That’s her new pseudonym.)
CeeCee asked for a tsum tsum autograph book for her Disney girls trip next week and Sister helped me create this darling thing… It’s so adorable that I’ve listed it in my etsy shop as well. Of course, I still have the regular version. My next ship date is May 10.
Elsa is mostly an angel these days but then she goes and does something like this… right after I cleaned out the fridge. For the record, she apparently doesn’t care for veggie straws.
Bestie M celebrated her birthday last week and hosted a group of girlfriends for a lovely pool side supper. Look how pretty… She’s such a great hostess, even when it’s HER birthday. She ordered takeout from Zoe’s Kitchen and it was a huge hit!
All the summer things have come out to play!!!!!!!!!!! This current Lilly print is one of my ALL.TIME.FAVES!!!!!!!!!! The clutch is by Spartina 449 and was a gift from my parents last year.
Honey has found an ingenious way to jump start the big green egg. He does have an electric starter, but sometimes you just can’t wait to sink your teeth into the BGE burger.
This pic looks gross… I’m sorry… but this dressing from Kroger is SO good. I don’t regularly shop at Kroger but have been making special trips to get it.
I’ve talked about Monopoly Deal before, but the boys recently dug it out of the game cabinet and we’ve been playing it nightly over dinner. It is more fun (and much quicker) than the board game version, in our opinion. One deck is enough for five players. We sometimes play with the extended family and then you need two decks.
Remember this fabric that I picked up when shopping for my foyer update? Mother said I could mail it to her and that she’d make me a few new pillows for my porch. Eek!! So excited!
Don’t forget to enter my giveaway for the Ex Voto Vintage bracelet! It will only take a minute and will ship out in time for Mother’s Day.
Daddy-O is still deep in the recovery process from his knee surgery. Mother said he’s in a lot of pain but is doing his PT and exercises. Unfortunately, they won’t make it for Whit’s first communion next week :-( Please send him some happy thoughts for really turning the corner on healing soon. <3
