Friday Favorites!

Happy Friday!! We have a fun, little birthday party to head to tomorrow afternoon, and we’re planning on doing a few fun things around the house this weekend. What are your plans for the weekend?

My Mom is a “Master Gardner,” no really, she took a test to become one, and her knowledge is amazing! She can even recite the latin names of every plant. I want her to write a blog! She loves gardening, and helps us with all of our plant choices.  And, I think I’m starting to become a gardener like her, but I’ve got a long way to go. She gave us these “Wedding Gown Hydrangeas” a few years ago, and I have kept them alive, and finally planted them a month ago. They make me so happy. I love going in the backyard and looking at them daily, and the best part is, she told me yesterday that they’ll bloom until September!


It’s time to dust off the old tennis shoes, and get back to walking. I’ve changed what I eat drastically; however, I still want to tone up. I’ve been eyeing these new tennis shoes at J.Crew as a potential motivator!;)

These shorts are perfect for the Summer time. I used to never wear shorts, but with two kiddos in the heat, jeans get pretty hot while playing. I really like the fact that they’re 4-inches in length, as I’m 5’10, and almost 35 years old, so no short shorts allowed here. Who’s with me?

I fell in love with these topiaries at Kirkland’s this past weekend! If you add a coupon (and you earn rewards every time you shop there) it’s not that bad of a price. I have one on my kitchen counter, and one in our dining room. It adds just enough “green” to our rooms, and it makes me happy when I’m doing the dreaded dishes! Ha!  Kirkland’s is one of my favorite go-to places for decorating. I also love shopping consignments, and of course HomeGoods!

This is our favorite Summer wine! It’s the best Chardonnay in our opinion, and it’s an incredibly reasonable price. It’s a very light and buttery Chardonnay. You should definitely try it! Cheers!

 Have a happy weekend!
