Happy Friday sweethearts! As you all know, this girl loves her some Fall! It is my jam through and through. But I also adore summer, the warm temps, the pool time, the fun excursions etc. And now here we are halfway through August, and I want it to slow down just a bit for more summertime shenanigans! I don’t know about you, but I feel like August is still summer and then September is Fall no matter what the temperature is, LOL!


1. Aunt Linda

My Aunt Linda is one of my favorites! She is my dad‘s baby sister by 13 months and I adore her. My middle name was even inspired by her. Even though my dad lives several hours away, I am blessed that she is just 40 minutes from us in Michigan. Last Friday my mom and I took her to an early birthday lunch and enjoyed some time with her.

2. Guilt Free Treats
"Peanut" Butter and Chocolate Fat Bombs
I know many of you do all kinds of programs to get healthy and feel better about yourself! These yummy little fat bombs, kind of look like a Reese peanut butter cup and are so full of flavor that they will absolutely satisfy your sweet tooth. They are low-carb, Keto, WW and FASTer way friendly!

Oh, how I love this Jumpsuit! It is from Old Navy and can take you right into Fall with a jean jacket or cardigan. It’s super comfy, a lovely neutral type of print, very comfortable and easy to get up and down.

Wednesday ~ Cabana Life CUTE!

Flower picture of the week is my beautiful Verbena and creeping Jenny.

Aww… a baby elephant ear popping up.

We had terrible storms this week, came home to one of those beloved elephant ears fallen over. 

Had to wait for Mr. Nine to get home to pick it’s sooo heavy.

But this lil guy appeared within the minute to cheer me up.


Even with all the auto ice makers...have lived this..

 Good Luck to all the teachers & kids headed back. 

I can honestly say I have never done this....Have you???

  4. Our icemaker has been broken and I'm back to making ice the old fashioned way so I can relate to that meme! What a sweet picture of you and your aunt. I want summer to slow down too!! My eyes must be blurry because I added an "R" to fat!! They look and sound delicious now that I'm reading more clearly! 😂😂 Happy Weekend lovely lady!

  5. So is EVERYONE is your family just blessed with beauty? Aunt Linda - what a great smile!
    I'm with you - September 1st - official day of fall LOL
    I am DYING at that teacher meme - that's why I wanted to be an elementary school teacher.

  6. I totally agree that September is fall no matter what the weather!! Lol. September 1 my fall stuff is going up! Although, who am I kidding... I might just put it up at the end of August. Lol. Now that the kids are back in school it feels like fall to me! Happy weekend, lady!

  7. I agree that summer is fading because it gets darker soon. Kinda sad. Love that you got to hang with your aunt and loving all these chic summer looks! That hummingbird shot is amazing!

  8. Happy Weekend to you! I like that romper with the jean jacket! I'd like to see how it looks with a rust colored cardigan for fall. Do you have one? -Meranda

  18. I love your flower and hummingbird photos! That pink drink dupe sounds amazing! I need to try it!

  19. Oh we hardly had a summer so i don't want it to end. How lovely that you met your aunt. I'm glad we can finally visit family again. Have a great weekend.

  20. I love Fall where you live. My daughter lived in Bloomington and Indy for several years. I loved visiting them in the Fall. The trees are so beautiful. Fall is the season I miss the most living in Florida. No beautiful colors for us but finally a reprieve from the heat hopefully by October.😉 I love following you.

  21. I screen shot your peanut butter chocolate treats. I don't do any of the diets but those sound amazing!!! I love the peanut butter/chocolate combo so I will be trying these ASAP. You are always adorable and it's not different in all of these great little gems that you showcased. Have a great weekend.

  22. I can't believe we are almost to fall already! Where did the summer go. Your mom is so cute - and so glad you got to spend time with your aunt. And what is up with this weather - we had terrible storms, too. No more rain, please for a few weeks - that is my wish. Hope you have a great Monday!

  23. Loving these sweet pics of you with your aunt, and oooooh I could use one of those peanut butter fat bombs - yum! And yessss August is for sure still summer. I never even thought about fall until mid-late September growing up in Connecticut. Here's to soaking up some extra pool time, and all the summer fun this month <3
