It's Friday, Y'all!

Happy Friday!!! And HAPPY SUMMER (for us, anyway!)


I can't tell you how happy we are in this house. I don't have to set my alarm anymore, I have both of my babies under the same roof all day, my daughter doesn't have to go to school anymore, and my son has his best friend back.  HOORAY!


I feel sorta bad b/c I didn't get around to decorating for Memorial Day this year. If you recall from previous holiday posts, we usually go all out for every holiday. But May was just so busy, it literally slipped my mind. I did manage to put a few things up on my mantel, but that's it! :(


And speaking of Memorial Day, here were my 3 (my niece included) cuties last year.


I really want to try this recipe soon. I saw it first on Natalie's blog. In fact, her entire meal left me hungry for Mexican. And I think it will make the perfect summer side dish.

We always go to my family's lake house for Memorial Day Saturday. Then we typically stay around the house on Sunday and usually hit up the pool on Monday (opening day). This year we may go to our in-laws for a cookout on Monday. We shall see. The weather has really cooled off, so the water (lake and/or pool) will be pretty cold. Regardless of what we do, I'm excited to have the hubs off and the kids home.  Do you have any specific/annual Memorial Day (weekend) plans?

I hope you have a safe and fun weekend!!! See you back on Monday! (Or maybe Tuesday.. depending on how the weekend goes with free time to blog.)

As always, my fun link ups:


  1. So amazing school is already out! My sister is still in until mid-June! But we don't start till after Labor day, so there is that. Love the mantle picture and your last pin :)! Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. Yay for your kids being off for summer, but I'm sure you have lots of fun plans with them!! I can always eat mexican food LOL - it's like a food group for me!! Enjoy your weekend!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. Yay! So either I'm living under a rock or not, but we have never decorated for Memorial Day. I was at Kirlands last night and they had all the patriotic stuff out, I thought it was just 4th of July early. Nope! Who knew! Maybe I need to dig some stuff out and keep it up till July!

  4. Have a great weekend. And after the ridiculous 90 degree humid weather we have been having in so happy about cooler temps this weekend !!!!

  5. I hope you guys have a great weekend!!! I am so jealous we still have 2 weeks left until Summer break!!
    Happy Friday!!Chelsea @
