You know where I am right now? In the garage taking in some dough. Yep, it's the first of two Garage sales this Summer before we move. Can you believe I am selling 30 pairs of my shoes? Wish you could all come. So, I apologize now if I am not commenting as much as normal today. It gets little nuts round here on sale day. People in these parts love em'!
In fact I did a whole post called last year called Garage Sale 101 as it is always quite successful but a lot of work. It'll be a fun, busy day. Wishing you the BEST Friday and fun and SWEET weekend ahead!

1. A Day at the Round Barn
We try to make it a point to get to the Round Barn Winery every year and had not been this year. My mom reminded me it as country music weekend so we said, Why not!!
 That is a vodka lemonade slushy with a sangria refreshing!

Before we filled up on bevy's, we opted for an outdoor meal at The Clean Plate club 10 minutes from the winery. That's a veggie scramble on top of friend green tomatoes with chipotle GOOD!!

Great band named "Gussied Up" from Chicago came in and played pop hits with a country spin and old school country  

Look at the Giant Jenga..and of course how my nail polish matches my drink, lol.

And earlier this week, I showed you my pretty Shades of Blue top. This blue was almost identical and the dress so comfy from Old Navy.

2. Gifts from sweet Bloggy Friends!
I've said it a million times, but blogging friends are truly something special. We really couldn't do our thing on the bog ole net without each other. My life has been blessed with the most amazing woman all over the world. I was super lucky to get packages this week from two of them who I adore with all my heart!
Shelly from The Queen In Between thought of me when she saw this darling watermelon lunch bag...perfect of this lunch to work toting gal!! Her words of sweetness made my week and we are so honored she is the newest sister at The Blended Blog!!

The ever sweet and Talented Nicole of Nick and Nicole + 4 sent me this goodness. I cannot wait to show you what is inside and tell you more about Nicole! The contents of this precious package will be revealed on July 27th when The Blended Blog ladies and I do our Christmas in July Post showing off our gift exchange. 
You don't want to miss it! 

3. Week's Attire
Ross Dress, Vigotti Pumps, The Loft necklace

TJ Maxx top, The Loft pants, Michael Kors flats

Kohl's top, The Loft pants, Black pearl necklace from my husband

4. When your ice cream matches your outfit
Monday I brought you a recap from our Family Vacation. Well, in that town is the most wonderful little ice cream stand. The lemon custard ice cream is outta this world. And well, I just happened to match it.
JC Penny side zipper sweatshirt, GAP Girlfriend capris and Tory Burch Miller Sandals

More Inspo
 I'm thinking that's mocha?

Maybe top scoop is strawberry?

5. Misc. Fun
Pom Pom Blanket 
I have had my eye on this blanket from Meijer and thought they were sold out but they re-stocked and it was on sale. Plan on throwing it over a plush couch in my new office/craft space at the new house. LOVE the pom poms but I'll probably call it my "Ball Blanket" lol 

Shower Tile
Well, we are over budget on tile and flooring but Mr. Nine is thinking I can keep the waterfall tile in the Master Shower. This is exactly what it will look like.

Let's do this sale thing and wish me luck!!
I hope your weekend is Fabulous sweet friends!!
