Friday Favorites


F R I D A Y   F A V O R I T E S

Is it really Friday already? This week has been a lot of fun, and somehow it flew by! I'm sad to see June go, but we still have plenty of summer left, and we have our vacations to look forward to :) 

We had our first s'mores of the season, and they were delicious and so nostalgic! We are hoping to get ourselves invited to many more campfires this summer so that we can indulge in our favorite summer dessert :)

Yesterday, I shared the Fourth of July touches around our house. Decorating for holidays is something I really enjoy, and I'm loving the simple red, white, and blue flair we have on our mantel this week!

On Wednesday, I talked about my favorite new shorts--this soft and comfortable pair from Target. The mint pattern is adorable, the elastic waist screams comfort, and there are even pockets!

We have had days and days of rain, and though some of the garden isn't doing so well (i.e. tomatoes), other veggies are growing like crazy! This is my first time growing corn, and I am proud to say it's definitely "Knee-high by the Fourth of July" like they say in my former home-state of Nebraska. :)

The pumpkin vines are out-of-control, and I found this tiny little pumpkin to show you. (It's the little bulb under the closed flower.) I am so excited to watch them grow again this year.

The first zucchini will be ready to pick this weekend!


And the green beans are visible now as well! 

I'm clustering the rest of the favorites together. We've had a lot of good times this week with friends and family. Tuesday night, I went to my friend Nicole's baby "sprinkle", and she was a no-show because she was at the hospital having the baby two weeks early! She had her fourth baby, a little girl, early the next morning. And the rest of us had fun eating out and chatting sans kids :)

My boys love playdates with friends! It's so fun for them to hang out with other kids and check out their friends' toys :)

Last night, we ate pizza burgers and strawberries with my mom and Don on their patio. My mom brought out the bubbles, and have you ever seen such excited faces waiting for them?? ;)


Happy Fourth of July this weekend! Hope you enjoy time with your family tomorrow--grilling out, watching a parade, and oohing and ahhing over the fireworks :)
