Friday Favorites (June 5th 2015) SUMMER!!

You know the drill! Erika, AndreaNarci, & I are linking up and giving you our Friday Favorites!

Today is all about SUMMER!  

Technically it’s still Spring, but it sure feels like Summer here in Texas!

I’m pregnant but that doesn’t mean I’m going to be sitting still.

I have kids who are ALWAYS ready to do something….No really!

They literally wake up asking, “What are we doing today?”

So here are a few of our SUMMER plans and items that we will be using:

#1 Noah’s Ark Pool at Quillian Center

Swimming at Quillian

Summer is not really Summer if water isn’t involved.  My kids are in love with being in the pool, so next week we will be visiting Noah’s Ark pool.  It’s so cute and fun for kids.  There is also a bigger pool for adults and youth to enjoy if the Noah’s Ark Pool is not right for you.  Check out the post I did about Noah’s Ark Pool HERE! Also see this place live in action HERE! I guess I better go shopping for a maternity swimsuit….Mama wants to get in on the action too! 😉

#2 Sandals, Sandals & More Sandals

I love wearing cute sandals, especially after my daughter and I have gotten pedicures.  Kendall’s 7 and loves her toes to look pretty.  Summer just wouldn’t be complete without a few lovely pair of sandals.

Here are 2 pair that Kendall will be wearing:

Girl's Cherokee® Fate Gladiator Sandals - Black 1

I found these Girl’s Cherokee® Fate Gladiator Sandals at Target.  They are on sale for 20% off…Get them HERE.

Girl's Cherokee® Frances Beaded Thong Sandals - Gold 6

I also found these Girl’s Cherokee® Frances Beaded Thong Sandals at Target.  They are also 20% off…Get them HERE.

Here are 2 pair that I will be wearing:

Women‘s Esma Braided Sandals - Cognac 6

Also from Target…these Esma Braided Sandals are so comfy!  I actually have them in white and in pink as well.

Yes, they are on sale too!!  You can get them HERE.

Michael Kors Sandals

I fell in love with these Michael Kors ‘Aubrey’ sandals from Nordstrom.  I splurged a bit on these. 🙂

You can get them HERE.

#3 Popsicles

Who doesn’t love a nice cold Popsicle when it’s extra hot out??  In my house popsicles are a staple must buy item.

The kids share them with their friends and my husband does a lot of the eating them too!

#4 Sidewalk Chalk

Let me be honest….My kids go through sidewalk chalk as if it were nothing.  Whenever we bring it out all the kids on out street make their way to our house.  Before you know it…We have a sidewalk chalk party going on.  The kids end up personalizing our entire driveway with their works of art.  It’s all fun and the kids get a kick out of it, so no harm there.

#4 Birthday Parties

Our June is FULL of birthday parties, some weekends have multiple parties.  I’m going to be one tired Mama!

That’s all I have for now!  See ya next time!

Yard work is calling!

Oh yes, it’s about that time!  Time to get the weed & feed, fertilizer, mulch, flowers or whatever else you need to make your lawn look really pretty.

I know at my house we will be doing a little yard work this weekend.  Some more than others. 😉  My husband and I are extra busy during the week and the weekend is the best time for us to get outside and make things happen.

The winter was more wicked than normal here in Texas this year.  Not to mention that the weather can’t seem to make up its mind. :/  I would be highly upset if we planted flowers and this indecisive weather killed them.  I’m praying for the best turnout.

I am always looking for yard inspiration….

I wanted to share with you a website that I found that has nicely manicured yards.  CLICK HERE to take a look.


What plans do you have for your yard??

Reply below…I would love to hear about them. 🙂
