Insta-Friday Summer Edition

What a fun, happy week!

The rest of my girls weekend was so perfect.

More movies, games, good food, girl talk and a hike.

Good for the soul.

These ladies are some of the strongest mothers/wives/women I know.

Good people to the core, and I am so blessed to have them as friends.

When I got home, we headed to Nana and Papa's to plant flowers and have dinner.

I love that the kids light up and squeal with excitement at the thought of spending time with their Nana and Papa.

We love Chick-Fil-A.
We go there a lot.
It's kinda ridiculous, but so fabulous at the same time.
They have good Dr. Pepper.
Not everywhere has the right syrup/carbonated water ratio.
But Chick-Fil-A doesn't disappoint.
I love looking at my flowers every time we come and go...
and watering/dead heading them everyday.
It's one of my favorite parts of the summer.

Fresh mint and basil.


Big plans for Caprese appetizers and dinners...

and fresh fruit salad and mojitos with mint.

Love water days in the back yard...

Reading on my old lady glider with the sound of the kids splashing and giggling in the background...icy drink in the cup holder.

So perfect.

I love ridiculous sun glasses.

And I love red and white gingham.

I think I need to own these.

Don't you?

There are so many happy things about this picture.

Fresh cut grass.

Bare feet.

Pink nail polish.

The seasonal flip flop tan.

I love summer.

This week I met up with a friend I haven't seen in awhile.

We caught up on life, good books, movies, and TV series for 4 hours over dinner and chocolate coconut cheesecake.

It was divine.

Every part of the evening was simply delightful.

Ab, Brody and I snuck in a trip to the library the other day while AJ was at school.
It's much more enjoyable to split the kids up to go to the library.
Otherwise it's like Bop The Mole.
Abby got the coolest Princess Primer book with lots of little envelopes that hold letters and cards to pull out and read.
It is written by a Fairy Godmother on how to be a princess.
Abby was in awe as we read the first letter.
She gasped and said, "So Fairy Godmothers DO exist!"
If I could just bottle up the wonder and excitement in her little voice.
This little guy is loving the warm weather and cool treats that come with it.
AJ had his Field Day on Friday.
He smiled the entire time.
It was a good day.
And now we are headed up to the mountains to spend the weekend with friends.
One is turning 40 while we are up there.
I was in charge of 40 of her fave drink.
That is one heavy Diet Coke cake.

Have a great holiday weekend.

What are you up to?
