Happy Friday sweet friends. Hard to believe May is here and going fast. Graduations and my big garage sale are quickly approaching so I think the weeks are zooming by even faster than normal and life is nuts right now. 
Counting the days til relaxation can occur in the warm sunshine.
 Happy Mother's Day on Sunday to all you moms, daughters, sisters, friends and fur baby moms. I hit the mom jackpot and you all know that as I have mentioned her many times before. She is as sweet as she is beautiful, strong as she is soft and as fashionable and hip as they come. I'm grateful for her each and every day! I'm grateful for all of you too. 
Go have the BEST weekend peeps! Speaking of mom...

1. Mom and Her Favorite Wine...
I know I usually showcase a cocktail but in honor of Mother's Day this weekend, I wanted to show you my mom's favorite red. Serena Sweet Red...delicious! I prefer a white and in the pic below we had a Moscato and a Prosecco, two of my favs.

2. Chambray Love and Inspiration 
I find myself going to my chambray shirts all the time, so comfortable, so versatile and so chic. I found lots of inspiration this week. My friend Vanessa from 
What Would V Wear had the cutest 20 Chambray tops for Summer on her blog this week.

3. Week's Attire
Below normal temps have decided to make an appearance once again...Boo
 Loft Cardigan, Express Cami, American Eagle necklace, Eddie Bauer scarf

JC Penny Cardigan, Aeropostale scarf, Necklace a gift from mom, tee from Target

Target cardigan, Old Navy skirt and tank, Anne Klein flats

Dress Lily Cardigan, Michael Kors flats, Kohl's scarf

4. Patio and the Posies
We have a large deck, this is one of my favorite areas on it. All I need is a bevy and a good 
book. I planted all kinds of flowers last weekend that will go on the deck an showcased a couple pics below from out trip to all the green houses last week.

It was a cold, rainy day picking them posies out but not busy so that was a plus!!
My mom is the queen of growing flowers, the BEST green thumb!
One of my favs...I go two of these double impatiens to go in black urns for the front porch

5. Smart Kid
So proud of this Freshman Honors Student. We had his Honors Banquet this past week. We are so blessed that not only are our boys sweet, talented and handsome, but they are super smart too!!

Happy Weekend, Happy Mother's Day, Happy YOU!!

  13. Happy Mother's Day Love! You and your Mom are too stinking cute together with your matching blonde hair! I love it! I am having MAJOR patio envy right now! I am dying to deck out my balcony but I had birds that laid eggs a nest out there in early April. They freaked me out so I stayed out of their way. Now they have finally vacated and it is raining non-stop this week and will be the same next week. I just got the cutest pink rug to put out there too. Question, do you what pink flowers (or any flowers) I could put out there that bees wont like? Is there a such thing? I am scared of them, lol. Congrats to your son! You make fabulous kids! xo
