I certainly am loving this beautiful month of May! All my flowers are coming to life. The weather has been glorious. The pool is finally in balance after a couple of mishaps, and life is good! AND Big day tomorrow, see below.


1. Mother's Day
We had a lovely Mother’s Day brunch with mom and our sweet boy and celebrated the mom to be. Guess what? Tomorrow, we find out the gender of those sweet babies. Our son from Baltimore could not come home but the other one, who resides in Cincinnati surprised me. And didn’t mama look cute in her polka dot pink top! It was a good day.
Our Grands are in the above belly, lol

2. The Farm Rio Dress
I was so excited to wear my new Farm Rio Dress! This one was a no-brainer, and I absolutely loved it. The bodice is tight enough that as a 34B, I did not need to wear a bra which I loved! It’s called sweet jungle red, and I’m crazy about it! IT's SOOOO GOOD! Sandals HERE.

3. The Knox Rose Dress
This DRESS was only about a 10th of the cost from the Farm Rio one, and I loved it so much I grabbed it in two colors. But I ultimately took it to an Instagram poll and along with you all, decided to keep the magenta one. BUT I love the blush one as well, with the Pockets and flowy comfort. This is going to be a summer staple! Pretty Gold Sandals HERE.

oh AND the Bangles

I wore these with this dress. These Bangle Bracelets from Walmart are not only incredible, but they are only 6 bucks! That’s right they look like the designer ones that are going for well over $100. Even if they tarnish at the end of the summer, I think I will have gotten my six bucks worth, they are perfect, they have a little bit of stretch and would make a great gift as well!

4. The Loft
Holy moly I’ve been finding lots at The LOFT, which doesn’t always happen. Lots of cute tops, especially I went in the other day without anticipation of train anything on and only took two pairs of shorts in the dressing room, but I sure did find some cute tops!

5. Misc. Fun
And I had a sponsored post on Tuesday about 

Our kids had told us about an ice cream place close to their house called Dari Fair where they have 100+ flavors of soft serve and the BEST pup cups with PB on top so of course we had to take Stella. She LOVED it! We did too. I had Cinnamon and yes, a Pumpkin in May, lol. The kiddie cups make it the perfect size to try more than one flavor!

    One of my favourite things is using China Aluminum Foil manufacturers foil paper in the kitchen. It's a handy tool that can be put to many uses. It transfers heat exceptionally well, so my food doesn't burn and keeps its original taste. I've found that using foil paper yields excellent results every time, whether grilling veggies or baking a delicate fish. It also facilitates easy cleaning. You won't have to scour pots and pans or worry about unsightly stains anymore. Using foil paper helps me save time and is quickly discarded after it has served its purpose. It's a green choice since it can be reused or recycled. I can only imagine having a kitchen with foil paper.

  16. The US passport truly offers an array of benefits that make it a valuable asset for travelers. Its visa-free and visa-on-arrival access to numerous countries is a real game-changer, simplifying the travel process and eliminating the hassle of obtaining visas beforehand. Whether you're exploring the historic streets of Europe or relaxing on the pristine beaches of the Caribbean, the US Fast passport opens doors and facilitates unforgettable experiences. It's a testament to the freedom and global connectivity that comes with being a US citizen.
