Bless it all~Friday is here. Thank goodness. This week has been like a streak of a bazillion crummy weather days and it is so depressing! Today looks decent but guess what: extended forecast calling for  rain again Oh well, I shall still rejoice because I am off work today, everyone is healthy and happy and I am wishing you all the same. Here are my favorites of the week.

1. BEACH PLEASE, duh right!
Pray, please pray, Mr. Weatherman is right and today is sun shining! Finally! Today is Beach Day, the best of days, if you ask me. I will be on this very beach below soaking it up!

Since it has been such a gloomy week here. Rain every day. I want  need more summery days! I felt the need to brighten things up at work so I wouldn't fell so gloomy.

 3.Pony Tail Obsession
I love a good Pony Tail. Especially one with some poof. This is my ideal pony!!

My attempt

My parents had an awesome Shish Kabob recipe growing up and I cannot, nor can they, find the recipe. Besides loving to say "Shish Kabob", I love to eat them, especially in the Summer. We always called them Kabobs but I know people that call them Kebabs. All I know is; it is goodness on a stick!! Here are 10 great recipes from A Farm Girls Dabbles

Oh yeah! Gotta have a yummy cupcake after feasting on Shish Kabobs. So I freaked at first thinking this "tasted" like watermelon. No, no, it is a chocolate chip cake mix and food coloring. Whew!!! I love the taste of watermelon in fruit form only. Isn't this just the cutest for summer parties!

Have a Fantastic Weekend Sweet Friends!
