A Great BIG Happy Friday to you all! Whew, it’s been a week hasn’t it? It seems like every week has been a week lately! My heart is with so many of you that are having kids heading back to school! We started out the week with a bad storm and in the basement for a tornado warning Monday night. Everything was ok, but a tornado did touchdown close by. LET’s hope for lots of sunny sweet skies ahead for this weekend!

1. Date Out/In
It was a beautiful weekend last weekend and I loved our pool day on Saturday but on Sunday, I really needed to get out of the house. I haven’t been out to eat since our vacation in northern Michigan in any restaurants in our area. We went over to another county and enjoyed a wonderful Spanish flared meal at Jesus Latin bar. We were going to sit outside but it was just too hot without umbrella’s but luckily they had all the doors wide open and the pomegranate margarita was to die for! after that, Mr. Nine took me over to Notre Dame to find Regis Philbin‘s grave! It was a lovely day out

Saturday's pool day...many of you thought Mr. Nine was naked on Instagram stories when I shared this...nope, he just didn't want in the picture. lol

2. Jewelry
Kendra Scott in the #NSale
I am not sure why I’m even talking about the Nsale, because it made me so mad when I shopped it on Monday, LOL! So many of my items are getting canceled left and right but I’m hearing all good things about these Kendra Scott Pieces at very good prices. Can you believe I never knew that Kendra Scott discounted her prices for the Nordstrom sale? I’ve got Kendra Scott pieces from Nordstrom before but wow, what a great time to get Kendra Scott gifts!

Stella and Dot
And speaking of gift ideas, maybe for yourself as well, I am loving all the pieces from Stella and Dot lately. I have not shopped there for a while but after I bought this clutch, I was sold again. Look at this cute necklace combo I got where you can put little charms on it. I’m wearing it as we speak!

3. Week's Attire
Mellow Yellow
Lots of sunshine yellow this week was needed!



4. Tie Dye Comfies/PJ's
I shared these on Instagram last Sunday and y’all went crazy for them! Good reason why, they are so comfy and absolutely adorable! I sized up one in these.

5. Misc. Fun
POST OF THE WEEK ~ Welcome to the Jungle

A few more of my beautiful flowers for your viewing pleasure. I love them but I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t thinking about how I’m going to decorate my porch for Fall
Silverberry Petinias...

A Carpet of Bubblegum Petunias....

Coleus and Sweet Potato Vines

The hummingbirds are back
And I’m happy to say my three sweet little hummingbirds have returned since it’s not quite as hot but they’re constantly fighting with each other. Lol. Here is a picture I stand at the ruby throated one at one of our two feeders!

And you know I love getting shots of this guy! He was as still as the water yesterday morning and I was able to capture this beautiful shot!
I love the cloud and tree reflection in the pond as well

Once again, the Memes always bring me smiles!

A BIG YES to this one...

And for your weekend...

Hope it's a Sweet and BEAUTIFUL weekend!!



  1. Your flowers are so gorgeous! All of mine look 1/2 dead despite watering them everyday.. everything is so brown and crunchy here. Our hummingbirds have been fighting with one another too even though the feeder clearly has multiple feeding spots.

  2. I'm so glad you got out last weekend - I could use a day out like that! Your flowers are so beautiful! I hope you have the very best weekend friend - love ya to pieces!

  3. Too funny that people thought Mr. Nine was naked! You always find the best memes to share too. Enjoy your weekend, Andrea xoxo

  4. That last meme about sums up my weekends! I treat myself to a Kendra Scott piece every year in the Nsale- the discount in so good. Have a great weekend.

  5. Happy Friday ! I love love the yellow cardigan, it looks beautiful on you. Gorgeous gorgeous flowers, my little patio off our living room is full of greenery and flowers in pots. It makes sitting outside more enjoyable for sure ! XOXO

  8. Hahahaha. I was totally wondering if Mr. Nine was naked under there, too. Hahahaha. That just cracks me up! I love all of those memes. All so true and all so funny. Bring on the PSL!! Happy weekend!

  9. Your flowers look absolutely beautiful! I love your initial necklace! There was a similar necklace I wanted on Etsy that has been sold out in my initial for ages that I was waiting to come back in stock. Just pulled the trigger on this one!

  10. It's so nice the pool days and that you and Mr. Nine went out for the day. I like your outfits too. Have a happy Friday and weekend.

  11. HI Andrea, Love the bubblegum petunias. I totally missed the pineapple coverage! Ha! We head to Ohio this weekend to move my baby into his dorm. Fingers crossed they make it to Thanksgiving. I have a Nordstrom box at front door and I am waiting until I get home to open it up! ahhhh.... laura in colorado

  12. I laughed at the pineapple over Mr. Nine and people thinking he was naked, LOL! Love the new necklace with the "a" and star! We have loved watching our hummingbirds this year, but they should be leaving us soon to go somewhere warmer. :( I will miss them! Have a happy weekend!

  13. Oh how I love these Friday posts! YOu look adorable in all your pics and I'm in love with that pearled "A" so feminine and perfect! I'm also in awe with your flower garden- so beautiful and colourful- perfectly reflects you! Have a great weekend xx

  14. I think this post is going to get me spending a lot! That initial necklace would be so cute with my kids' initials!

  15. I'm dying, I didn't even notice the pineapple over Mr. N in the pool...I guess I was just too focused on YOU!!!! Lots of sunny goodness this week my friend. Have an awesome weekend. XOXO

  16. I swear you find the best memes around Andrea. And that pearl "A". I may have to get one for sure (of course, I'd get a J...duh!!!, LOL)
    You always are so upbeat and positive. Thank you for making me smile.

  17. I don't really have a green thumb, but I absolutely love seeing gardens and flowers from people who do! Your petunias are stunning! I am definitely trying them next year! Your restaurant food looks delicious! I'm hungry now!

  18. Love all the yellow! I can't shop till the 19th so we shall see if anything is still in stock. My main goal is a pair of grey jeans and probably will end up getting full price eventually. Hoping my wishlist is not the most popular items.

  19. Happy weekend Andrea! Love all the jewels and your flowers are amazing! I think that is hilarious that people thought Mr. Nine was naked. These cardis are so cute!

  20. Did we share the same jammies this week? They are so cute!

  28. What happened with the Nsale? We don't really have a Nordstrom here so I don't shop the sale but was thinking about trying to get a few pieces online this year (I may have to rethink that). Look at your beautiful blooms Absolutely lovely.

  29. You look absolutely stunning Andrea- that restaurant looks fantastic too! XO

  30. Omg the memes! SO funny!

    That pomegranate marg looks amazing- nice to have a night out safely! We are actually going to try to hit up a patio for happy hour today to celebrate some really pretty weather!

  31. The entrance to your home is a landscaping dream and your healthy ferns are amazing!

  32. The NSale was a bit disappointing this year. I wanted one item and it was already sold out by the time I was able to shop. Oh well, there's next year but it feels like every year gets worse with the cancellations and sell outs. What a fun day out! That martini looks so good. I need one STAT! I really love how your front porch looks. The flowers are so beautiful and I can tell they are well loved. Great job Andrea. I hope your week is going well and happy Friday eve!
