FRIDAY FAVORITES.....Red Shoes Edition

Happy Friday Loves! The sunshine and warmth finally returned yesterday! It been a busy week, we had Senior Awards on Monday for the two soon to be graduates, who both got scholarships and wrapped up a High School discus throwing career yesterday for one of them. This weekend officially kicks off our crazy busy graduation season with a nephew graduating from 8th grade and then let the open house festivities begin in spades. A basket at our house is just filled with invites galore. 
I hope your May weekend is filled with laughter and love!!

1. Red Shoe Slushies
I realized I hadn't done a cocktail in awhile. You know this mama's busy when no cocktails, lol. With Summer & the holiday weekend coming up, it has to be slushie time!! These are so simple and scrumptious.
1 16 oz container strawberries, hulled
1 bottle champagne or sparkling wine
2 Tablespoons Honey

Pour half champagne or wine the blender, then pour other half into a large glass or pitcher, cover and set aside in the refrigerator. Add strawberries and honey to blender and blend until chunks have disappeared. Pour mixture into ice cube trays and freeze until completely solid. Remove ice cubes from the trays and return to blender. Add remaining champagne and blend until a thick, slushie consistency has formed. Pour into champagne glasses & serve.

2. Red Shoes
OH How I love these Polka Dot WEDGE SANDALS!!

These Polka Dot Sandals Are darling as well

3. Pineapple Ring
Pineapple Love is popping up everywhere. After I got my Pineapple door mat, I literally began seeing Pineapples everywhere. Look at my new fun ring. It'll be fun with Summer outfits. I got my mom one too.

4. Week's Attire
Macy's INC cardigan, Target tank, Boutique gift necklace from mom

Target cardigan, TJ Maxx dress, Vince Camuto shoes

J.C.Penny Top and pants , Kohl's necklace, Jessica Simpson Flats

5. Preciousness
I showcased the Prom 2016 Recap on Monday and when I found a picture of our oldest as a ring bearer, these precious poses just fit perfect together.
Happy Weekend Sweet Friends!!

  10. Congrats to your son! He is so very handsome. I totally want red shoes! I have my eye on a pair of red chanel flats but they are so expensive. I don't know if I would wear them enough to justify the price. I have really weird feet and can only wear certain shoes. It's horrible. Hope you have a great weekend pretty lady!
