"Me and You!" That Kenny Chesney song is our wedding song and tomorrow is our Anniversary! We’ve had a lot of heavy stuff going on lately, but my man is a rock and a sweetheart....Mr. Nine...My definite Favorite! And let’s get to all the other goodies too! I've got it packed full of goodness today Kicking off this fabulous Memorial Day weekend!

Bonus: Our Anni Fun
We’re going to celebrate our Anniversary in style in a beloved Lake Michigan town at a fabulous little boutique bed-and-breakfast! Here is a picture of it. It was voted best of the best on TripAdvisor, in other words, in the top 1% of the worlds accommodations and voted one of the most romantic! If you follow me on Instagram, I’ll be sure to share some goodness and Instagram stories.
We will be in the Guest Manor on the Left.

1. Day with Mom

My mom and I had the best day on Tuesday! It was a hot but beautiful and breezy day. We started off having brunch in a nearby town at a place called the Chicory Café! It’s New Orleans inspired and oh so yummy! We even had warm beignets with our cappuccinos and Mimosa’s! Look how cute mom looked in her little striped top! Afterwards, we changed clothes and walked the town’s Riverwalk! It was more than we ever imagined, and we saw so many cool things, lots of pretty perennial flowers, sculptures, little gnome villages around trees and even a mini-Cooper mounted sideways on the side of a building! Plus, we got in about 4 miles! Then, we came back and had a pool afternoon! Love these days!

2. Promos of Goodness
The Hotel Collection 

These Candles are heavenly. The new Gatsby Line is especially divine, very aromatic for both women and men alike, it will make you want to sip champagne in a dimly lit lounge listening to swanky music. Not just candles, but reed dossiers, oil diffusers and room spray too! Very reminiscent of the Roaring twenties and GREAT gift idea. I’ll be lighting one for our Anniversary!

I have a 20% off code for you!! 


Magic indeed! I was skeptical. I have been seeing this Magic Spoon cereal everywhere and it absolutely lives up to the hype! I adore cereal but I don’t buy it or eat it very often because of all the artificial flavors and sugars and bad stuff for you! But this Magic Spoon has made me love eating cereal again! Zero sugars in all of their cereals. Grain free, gluten-free, soy free, GMO, let’s just say it has none of the bad stuff but is chocked full of protein! Like 14 grams a serving! The frosted and the peanut butter are my favorites and I love you that you can get a variety pack to try it. AND that you can build your own bundle which I am doing next.
I have a $5 off code for you!! 

These Frosted O's are my Favorite! 2nd is the Peanut Butter!
I love it so much, I'm using my own code for MORE, lol!

4. Me and You In Liverpool

You know I love it when Mr. Nine joins me in collaborations! We were both over the moon to get some cuteness from Liverpool Jeans! Not only are our jeans from Liverpool, but my beautiful coral and soft Jean jacket and white blouse is as well! Mr. Nine put on his first pair of jeans and said I am in love! He is very picky about his jeans, but these checked off every box for him and I’m telling you, your husband would love them! My frayed him hugger jeans fit me perfectly as well! I love everything they have to offer!

5. Misc. Fun


Of course, more nature round our house to be had. 


These Hibiscus..pretty evident that their name of “Fiesta” lives up. Don’t these colors just look like a Mexican party!

There are 3 families of Geese around the pond right now and this Geese parent was telling her Goslings to "hurry up!" Probably because the Nine lady was approaching, lol!


Have a great Memorial Day 
weekend my Loves!!
