This is a very Happy Friday indeed! I’m finishing up the packing and I am in vacation mode before it even starts! I hope your week has been wonderful and you’re excited for some summer fun!

My beloved has a birthday Sunday. One year away from the big 5-0! The most fabulous news for him is that he gets to be on vacation in our favorite lake town to celebrate. Woohoo. I’m already thinking what we will do next year for the big one. It may fall on our vacay again, but it will be hard to top the fun party I threw him for his fortieth. True story, I hired DJ’s and one of them was a guy who stood me up for a semi-formal my jr. year of high school. While 20+ years later, He actually apologized. Lol. Anyway, I am beyond blessed to do Life with this birthday boy.
He is my partner, my best friend and I’m his biggest fan!

His favorite pie is rhubarb so every year my sweet mom makes him a pie with his initial on top. Her rhubarb its delicious and with a scoop of ice cream on top, well, Mr. Nine is a happy camper! I'll have her share her recipe sometime.


Cheers to my babe!

I may sound like a broken record, but I had to mention our link up on Monday again. We’re just so darn excited and really want you to join us! Festive Red, White, Blue and YOU! Bring it Friends! And we’ll be having a BIG announcement as well!

Favorite Beauty Products 
On Sunday, I shared my favorite beauty products on my Instagram stories and since several of you were interested, I decided to link them up here as well.

*The Kopari Coconut Melt is the best softener, for your skin, for your hair, I even had a fellow Blogger friend tell me she used it on her daughter’s softball mitt!

*I have finally found the perfect face serum for me; I just love the Estee Lauder advanced night repair Serum. I use it right before bed and first thing in the morning.

*The Bumble and Bumble thickening Spray gives my roots the boost they need since my hair tends to be flat.

*This is absolutely the best, stay long CND Topcoat! While I do my own nails, if I paint them a different color, I use this, and I definitely use it on my toenails to keep the polish lasting lots longer especially in the summer water and sand!

Star Sandals Pineapple Tee
I have these sandals in the rose gold from target I absolutely love them. How excited was I to see if they have a Star Version, super cute!

Sweet Daisy 
Sweet Daisy is finally feeling better. She had been kind of sluggish, so we started her on the vet recommended CBD oil and after three weeks of antibiotic’s to heal up a mouth infection and having her teeth scaled, she seems to be feeling much better, she just loves rolling around in the grass in the sunshine!

Pineapple Tee 
Did you know that yesterday was national pineapple day? I did not even know until my friend Lisa told me about it. Ironically right before I got her message, I had just purchased this adorable Lauren Conrad burn out T-shirt at Kohl’s. The little pineapples with the sequins are just perfect!

I hope you have a wonderful weekend!
