Happy Friday and crazy to say the last one in July. This week has been uneventful. Gearing up for Back to school and college while still soaking up Summer. Hope you’re enjoying the season and like many of us, looking forward to Fall and cooler temps after Mother Nature went Crazy again! Should be cool enough here to sit out on the Lanai that I shared with you on Monday. Now, Let’s Talk Favorites!

Sarah from Foxy's Domestic Side
On Wednesday, I showed you my adorable On Cloud Wine sweatshirt. Well, I’m excited to tell you more about the sweet bloggy friend who gave it to me. It's Sarah from Foxy's Domestic Side! LOVE this girl! This amazing southern California beauty is not only sweet, funny and gorgeous but she is super smart and let's just say VERY important but "It's Classified!" She is also a Blended Blog Sister, crafty, can cook and oh so domestic! She is a Go Go Go girl like me and the light of the lives of her family and friends! 
This girl is one of the BEST organizers I know. LOVED her post on Organizing your home. Sarah’s family is the absolute cutest. See her awesome post on Picking Family Photoshoot Outfits because their family photos are precious. Another fun post of Sarah's is How to Make Mom Friends. It's such a goodie because Sarah is one of the most genuine, happy friends I know. Sarah and her hubby are a pure joy and I love that their anniversary is on my birthday! They are the epitome of a strong and sweet marriage and she wrote a great post about Love Being a Choice HEREShe has the most beautiful hair, can style and braid it a million different ways and is a beauty product expert in my opinion. Trust me when I say you come away happy from reading Sarah’s BLOG and even luckier if you get to meet her. 
Just look at this gorgeousness!

2. Favorite Summer Foods
I always love seeing what other people eat so here is some of my summer goodness this week. Each one with some fresh fruit or veggie.
Peaches and Greek vanilla yogurt with a little of my homemade Crunch 

My Homemade Pasta Salad

Ice Cold Watermelon and Feta Cheese 

Guess it’s Graphic Tee week, lol. Especially Love the saying “LOVE WINS!”….because it truly does!! This reminded me of Sarah too because she had a similar Love tee on her BLOG this week. This Rock and Roll All Night one has my heart And My Mom is totally in Love with this Beatles Graphic Tee.

4. Another Cute Sweatshirt 
  Sweatshirts are just so easy to throw on. Before vacation, I got this Striped One from Old Navy. Only wore it for this picture because never got cool enough but these evenings here are cooling down so I'll be wearing it a lot. It’s on major sale right now and the colors in the little pineapple are so cute! 

5. Misc. Fun
Sunflowers from a Friend
A friend came over for lunch this week and brought me these gorgeous sunflowers.

Future Lake House? 
It’s no secret that Mr. Nine and I hope to live in Northern Michigan part time on the Lake someday. He found a GREAT house plan we are filing away for when that time comes. With closet modifications of course, lol. Isn’t it cool! 

 Happy Birthday J-LO
And a BIG Birthday Cheers to my homegirl, Jenny from the Block. Here she is celebrating her 49th birthday this week. Look how happy A-Rod looks...and I mean come on-49!!! Major Life Body goals as I am not far behind her!
