Happy, yes HAPPY Friday my beautiful babes! So glad we made it through this week, but I have to say hey hey June, slow down, let’s not let summer go too fast. Indiana is set for a beautiful stretch of weather, not overly hot and I’m going to soak up every last second of it! Hope it’s going to be a good weekend for you all! Let’s get to Friday favorites and to enjoying this summer weekend ahead!

1. Outside Time
This past weekend was absolutely gorgeous but strangely, I was in a really weird depressed funk! Mr. Nine to the rescue with his suggestion that we finally, after two years of living in our new house, kayak the river that runs behind us! It was the perfect day to kayak, the river was flowing swiftly, and we saw so much gorgeous scenery. Now, we did ditch early because we got out at the wrong park and I did run into a set of logs while trying to turn around, but my man pulled me out and our son came to pick us up to load up the kayaks! We Will be kayaking all Summer long.

Then it was a little pool time and some evening fishing! None of us caught anything except for Mr. Nine and his catches kept getting bigger, LOL!

2. The YETI Bartender 
With that posting last Friday, I have two YETI Bartender videos to share and they are my best yet! I hope you will check both of them out. This first one is a Pineapple Upside Down Martini that I first had on a family vacation. I knew I would want to replicate it but it’s been several years now and I finally did it and oh am I happy with the results! It is definitely my prettiest cocktail!

The second one is my favorite martini of all time! The Key Lime Martini! I made this extra special by making it in a giant martini glass. This is the same glass that my mom handed me a Key Lime Martini in at my 40th birthday party many moons ago! I have been waiting to make this one for so many years and it turned out divine!

4. Tassels & Stripes from Mint Julep
What do Fridays and tassels make me feel? TOTALLY FESTIVE! Mint Julep Boutique does it again! I just took these pictures yesterday and wore this top to 2 stores and I got three compliments including the mail bagger at the grocery store! It feels so good on, fits great and it’s going on beach vacation with me!

5. Misc. Fun

My love for Society Socks just got even bigger! I received these gorgeous socks in the mail this week I was overjoyed that it included the striped pair for women! Even has my favorite pink. And you know I may need these Pineapple Socks! What I love about this Society Socks is their commitment to community and giving back! For every pair of socks your purchase, they donate a pair to those in need! Their Monthly Subscription, where you receive two pairs of socks each month, is so much fun! And then, just like that, 2 additional pairs are donated! Their custom designs are absolutely darling and my boys and Mr. Nine love the quality and comfort of their socks and the no slip cuffs are a huge winner! Just look how cute the men’s pair is with the little astronauts on them! Perfect timing for our launch of American astronauts back into space! Check them out HERE

As you may have seen in my Instagram stories, I made the trip up to Trader Joe’s for the first time this year and I have to say I was so impressed! I was probably only one of about a dozen people in there! They didn’t have everything I was looking for, but I certainly was happy with what I came home with! Here are a few things that are new to me and I can already tell you that the little coconut wafers and coconut cashews are out of this world delicious and will be on my repeat list!

so good!


As I mentioned Monday, the patriotic and fun red white and blue and you link-up is back on Monday, June 29 with my five best girls! You do not want to miss this link-up and sharing all your Americana and Festive Fun!

Be Kind, Do the Right Thing and
