FRIDAY FAVORITES....Spring Finally Arrived in Indiana

That's right sweet friends, this girl finally had the sun on her face and some temps in the 70's...after waiting and waiting, we were bestowed with like a whole week of beautiful sunshine and warmth. This was a busy week after being gone the week before and I'm extra happy Friday is here. I hope the weekend treats you well with lots of love and fun!!

How refreshing!! Now that warmer weather has arrived, I've got me a slushy in the sun craving. These are so easy and the cool thing is that you make up a big batch ahead of time, pop into ice cue trays, put the slushy cubes in freezer bags, then all you have to do is blend when ready!!! 
1 Bottle Moscato
2 cups frozen unsweetened peaches
1/3 cup powdered sugar

In a blender or food processor, blend the peaches, sugar and a few splashes of moscato until smooth, blend in rest of moscato, pour into ice cube trays and freeze. When frozen, pop out cubes and put several into freezer bags. When ready to have a slushy, pour contents of bag into blender and add more splashes of wine to make blending smoother. Serve immediately with fresh fruit if desired. Then, go back in and make another batch!!

First Prom of the season and these kids were absolutely blessed with the perfect day. 76 and sun, sun, sun!! Prom was held at a beautiful Inn on a Lake and we got gorgeous pictures.  Monday I mentioned the day I took these two for the Tux Fitting in my Day In The Life post. Just love them to pieces! More to come as another Prom in May with our two oldest.

I cannot remember the last time I owned a pair of flat espadrilles. Usually mine are lace up wedges. I had been eyeing all the Soludos espadrilles on Shopbop and decided just to get a basic leopard print from the Soludos website. I wore them around one day for errands and they were so comfy.
