Dedicating this week to sweet friends including my husband and one very special one has a birthday today!


1. Kellyann...Birthday Girl

My dear Kellyann‘s birthday is today! Head over to her Blog or Instagram and wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Kellyann is what I refer to as the OG, one of the original gang that I consider one of my besties! She truly is one of the good ones, an absolute heart of gold, amazing compassion, talent and a beautiful soul inside and out! We will have each other's backs always!!

2. Seeing Friends:

CABI and The BIG Applause 

So grateful to see my girls Jill from Doused in Pink and Laura from I do deClaire this week. Jill and I were honored to be guests at an event called the Big Applause for Cabi Clothing which I will talk more about next week. Very inspirational. We enjoyed an overnight at a great hotel with pre-dinner cocktails too. 

The next morning got to see Laura’s beautiful home, have breakfast and visit with her sweet girls! And if you haven’t already tried it, head to Laura’s Blog for her Rhubarb Coffee Cake, it was out of this world delicious!

3. Hubs and The Anni Fun

 Mr. Nine and I had the best anniversary weekend. We had a day date in lower Michigan on Saturday.

Oh that Strawberry Slushie...YUM!!

Dinner was at a darling Italian tucked away Restaurant called Tosi's

This beautiful Azalea was in the shape of a heart!

A view of lake Michigan before heading home is always a good idea!

 4. Talk to Me Goose

Then on Sunday, our actual anniversary, went to see Top Gun Maverick which was phenomenal, I mean phenomenal. Even if you are not familiar with original or haven’t seen it, you’ll be blown away by this movie! Have you seen it yet?? It was a perfect movie to go to after such a hiatus from the movie theaters. Of course I wore my CUTE TEE!

5. Misc. Fun

Just funny memes and a lil Stella to wrap up the week.


Spotting her adorable red track suit, Stella and I worked on a great video for you all coming soon. Milkshake Toy HERE

    I used to live in northern Indiana and always try to guess where you may be wandering. When I saw Tosi's I got so excited. That was one of my favorite restaurants! The entrance looks the same although I can't remember the patio -it's been 11 years since I moved away. I do remember the lake though.
    Happy to see it's still there and that you and Mr. Nine has an enjoyable anniversary.

  25. What a fun filled week! I need to plan a night when the hubby, the teen and I can go see Top Gun 2!
