Happy Friday sweet peeps! August should get a speeding ticket because it’s going by way too fast! However, it’s also with a heavy heart this week due to all the strife and sadness in our world which seemed to be extra this week! On a lighter note, I have a lot of FUN Finds this week and while I’m still enjoying summer and will be in the pool this weekend, I’m getting all the Fall feels. I will probably pull out some pumpkins next weekend! Confession, I’ve already done one tiered tray and have a white pumpkin out, LOL!


1. Photowall Sweden..

It’s no secret that I love the wallpaper, posters and canvas pieces from Photowall! Do you remember when I shared beautiful one that we put in our master bathroom last year? Make sure you check out that post for lots more information on Photowall. I just want to stress again how wonderful they are to work with and how easy this canvas was to put together! Little backstory. Mr. Nine was wanting to hang up some pictures in his office after it got repainted. He had had in his mind that he wanted a giant 60-inch-wide canvas on the wall of an American Flag! Enter Photowall Sweden to make his dreams come true!

Before and After

Literally look how easy these canvases are to assemble on the pre-cut frame pieces. It only took us 10 minutes! Plus, their shipping is so quick, no waiting around for your beautiful new art!

We went in this past Sunday to hang it on the wall and just look how happy Mr. Nine is! Photowall makes top quality wall decor that gives rooms a fresh, updated feel and brand-new look. All their motifs are and picked and made to order.

I call him my long-haired hippie professional; he was on a roll not getting his haircut since Covid. Being a big dog, nobody cares if he has long hair, ha ha. And to be over 50 with gorgeous black hair, he’s a lucky guy and so am I!

2. RSVP Skinnies
Outfit and Props
Ok, the poolside shots might be some of my favorite that Mr. Nine has ever taken! And you know what else is my favorite, these RSVP Skinnies cocktail mixers! They are no calories, no sugar and no net carbs and completely guilt free! Super yummy and what a way to take out these last few weeks of summer and pool time! I’ve also linked up this super cute polka dot bathing suit, cover-up, glamorous pink sunnies and props!

4. Trader Joe’s Latest and

At Home

On Tuesday this week, my mom and I went up to Trader Joe’s. It is over an hour drive but the good news is a local Trader Joe’s opens for us on Friday but knowing the first two weeks will be crowded, we would head up to stock our pantries. Right beside of it is an at home clock store which we love and is the closest to us. Here are some of my fun finds.

At HOME stuff first


At Trader Joe’s I was concentrating on foods that are conducive to my FASTer Way to fat loss and my journey to eat healthier and get stronger. I found so many great and yummy options! Grab some more of my favorite things like olive oil (such a GREAT PRICE) and the almond butter almonds!

5. Misc. Fun

Verbena (3 varieties) at its BEST this week. You’ll also see some crimson geraniums in the pool shed window box and a glimpse of my dragon wing on the right that is huge!

This sweet lil guy. We scared them and mom and dad jumped in the river, but he held steady.

My hubby used to have long hair back in the 80's--mullet style of course. :) Now he gets too impatient if it gets a little long. That pool photo of you is stunning. You should be their spokesmodel!
