Friday whoohoo! Another fast week. My mama came and stayed with me as Mr. Nine was out of town for a bit. We ran around to everything from a Coffee house, stores, fruit stands and and dodged lil pop up rain showers, but the weekend looks grand and let’s get to some Favs!

1. Berry Sweet Stuff

Berry Basket
Wednesday, I had my yearly GYN appointment. I’ve told you the story many times how I had an NP that I adored for 30 years and when she retired I cried, so worried about who would take over my care. This is my third visit with the precious NP, Shelby, and she has made me feel at ease and like a friend from day one! I adore her so I always like to take her a little something. This year I put together a sweet little strawberry basket for her, I included a book and Fourth of July sunglasses for her daughter and of course fresh strawberries! Lots of the goodies are linked below, so fun to make.

Meet our new grand boy, Oliver! The kids rescued this sweet boy for a better life, he’s just a little over a year old, full of energy and so precious! I think he likes me!

Sun Spinner

How sweet is this little hummingbird sun spinner? My mom fell in love with it and went to a little Amish town and got us both one. I went and got a shepherds hook yesterday to hang it from. On the metal, you take turtle wax and wax it like you would a car to protect it. It’s spins so beautifully in the sun and it’s a great addition to our flower gardens. I can even see it from one of the windows in the kitchen. HERE is a Rainbow Onefrom Amazon.

2. Affordable Summer Tops
American Girl
I was over the moon to order this adorable American Girl Tee on Etsy just in time for Fourth of July! It is so cute, and I can’t wait to get it.

Cute Ones under $12
I’ve showed you some things from a couple of the lines I like at Walmart, the Scoop Line and The Get line but the Time and Tru is really coming through, LOL! All these tops are under $12 and the perfect summer basics with some jazz it up a little bit with cute details like stripes and peplum and front ties.

4. Sundress

I adore this little summer Sundress! It has the cute smocking at the top, you can wear a regular bra with it, and it has pockets! I also love the length and the material is so nice and cool for Summer. Of course, I had to get a picture in front of my beautiful roses!

5. Misc. Fun


Isn’t this hydrangea absolutely gorgeous! They are compact Proven Winners Cityline Paris Compact hydrangeas and my mom got me three of them this year. I adore the color and they just pop off of our black mulch.

Here's the tag I'm case you 
want some..THEY ROCK!!

My roses before the rain knock off all the pretty petals.

The Number "9:

This first one is not really a meme but just reaffirming how cool it is that our last name is Nine, LOL! It's from a fav former Notre Dame football Player, Jaylon Smith who wore Number "9".

I guess I never realized this was true with the number nine for all multiplications despite being a huge math lover!

Eew I know!!

Have a great 
 weekend my Loves!!

  14. I'm wondering if the sun spinner is what they just put up in our park on a giant scale. I really think it's wind powered, but the sun idea is fun. Lots of cute looks this week, and I know you love that sweet puppy. Maybe you can be its nanny. LOL (had to delete my other comment...I saw a grammar mistake. HA!)

  15. How nice to spend time with your mom and Oliver is just adorable! I love all of the cute outfits on you. Have a nice weekend Andrea.

  27. My mom has a spiner like that with a jewel inside. We got it for her for Mother's Day a few years ago. The memes are just too funny. I love your outfits! The strawberry basket is sooo cute!

  28. I've just bought a new Hydrangea and also one for my best friend for her birthday. Potted mine earlier and I do hope it stays the pretty blue shade it is - I've heard they respond in colour as to what type of soil is used!! Have a super week Andrea. Jacqui x

  29. Know you enjoyed that Mother/Daughter time. Love your rose garden. Ours has been absolutely gorgeous this year. I think they actually loved the snow and ice and we were afraid that they would never be the same since the snow was in March. Have a joy filled week Andrea!

  30. That strawberry basket was the sweetest gesture!
    The Hydrangeas, wow! I love that they are smaller. Mine are gigantic bushes. I will look for those.
    Have a great week, Andrea!
    P.S. Those crocheted!

  31. Andrea, you are the absolute sweetest bringing gifts to your GYN! I bet that just made her day!

  32. Those knitted shorts are lololol so bad! Can you imagine?

    I'm loving all your cute summer looks- gotta love florals and brights for summer.

    And Oliver is SO CUTE!
