Oh my goodness friends, the weather this week was absolutely grand! I was on Cloud "9" for Sure!! Had some fun daytime shenanigans, some pool time with friends and today, my mom and I are heading to Michigan to take my dear Aunt Linda to lunch for her birthday! Looking forward to a relaxed weekend as well!


1. Last Vacay Snaps

Thought I’d share some last snaps of our summer Lake Michigan vacation!This vacay always has me on cloud nine.

Can’t beat the best lemon custard, a red, white and blue slushie, The beautiful bay on morning walks, sunset views from the couch and tradition Friday night fish dinner from the coolest old school Fish Market.


2. Bedding

Cozy Earth

As you know, I am a huge fan of CozyCozy Earth and just love getting the high-quality items from them that makes sleep and cozy so much better! Not only am I wearing their pajama set in this picture which I also happen to own in blush, but I’ve put on our new summer bedding that includes a beautiful bamboo comforter from COZY EARTH! It is so luxurious and so well-made! It has the loops so you can attach it to the button of a duvet.

Target Pillows

Here is a closer look at the beautiful pillows I bought from Target to compliment the summer bedding. I especially love the oblong one as it has little tassels. Pretty Blue Hues too. PS...I'm so ready for a new bedroom suit; a mattress company turned me down for a collaboration because we had sleigh bed, ugh!

4. Cabana Life

It’s no secret I love CABANA LIFE! Having had five skin cancers removed, I know the importance of protecting our skin. And when Cabana Life can aid in that by offering beautiful high-quality clothing with built in 50 SPF, well I’m completely sold! We took impromptu date day to new Buffalo Michigan on Saturday and I wore this little Terry Tunic Dress! It would also make a great cover-up! I just love the colors!



5.Misc. Fun


Monday ~ Amazon Hello August

Wednesday ~ You're an Angel

50 and SASSY

This dear friend of mine also happens to be the mother of one of her sons girlfriends and she is just precious! Lauren, her daughter, had made us these precious T-shirts this year as we both turned 50 within two weeks of each other and we finally got a chance to wear them together!

Pink Toes

We all had on pink toenail polish, so a pool feet shot was warranted.



I sat patiently out on the back porch one night waiting to get pictures of the little hummingbirds and I was super happy with this shot! 

Porch Petunias

So this year I decided to alternate the proven winners bubblegum petunias and fuchsia petunias and I love how they blend it in together and flow down the front porch steps!


Blue Heron

I shown you the sweet blue heron that comes to our pond every year many many times and gotten some great pictures of. Imagine my surprise when I spotted a baby! Didn’t see mama but that baby was flying around but was quick but I was able to catch this in flight, reflection on the water picture.


If you saw my Instagram stories this week…you know…they were rearranging my favorite grocery store…NO..Just NO!!

  10. GIRL - your petunias are incredible!!!! You have to have the greenest thumb I've ever seen! Seriously everything you plant turns out amazing. And that grocery store meme - YES. OMG I hate it when my Publix rearranges everything. It messes me up for weeks!

  11. The cookies in the pantry one is so me. Ha. I love those pjs. They look so cozy. I almost thought that was dole whip, but lemon custard sounds really good too!

  12. So much goodness in this post! I love it all!! Have fun with your mom today and have a glorious weekend, friend! XO, Caroline

  13. I just love how some of the clothing has UPF in it now. I only wish that it all at least covered our shoulders because that's one area that tends to burn for me.

  14. Your petunias are amazing! I love how full they are and the way they create almost a waterfall effect! The cabana life products sound amazing!

  15. That porch is amazing! Do you work on the garden yourself? Those tees are fun! Enjoy your weekend.

  16. Your porch just amazes me!! Love all the outfits!

  17. Your flowers are just amazing spilling down the stairs like that! I realized in seeing your photo that I have never seen a baby heron on our lake. I will definitely be keeping my eyes open for one now.

  18. Your porch looks amazing, and the petunias are gorgeous! Love your tunic dress!

  19. Look at you, cutie! Your porch petunias are ROCKING this year (of course). Love 'em. And I love it when the summer weather cooperates and is the perfect temp + low humidity!
