Friday Favorites {Summertime Edition}

Happy Friday!
Today I'm linking up with Friday Favorites!
Hosted by: Andrea, Erika & Narci

I'm not going to lie...during the summertime, Friday is NOT my favorite.
In the summer, Friday means the week is over & we are one week closer to school starting back up again.  Booooo :(
 This meme is perfect...Monday through Thursday in the summer this is how I feel:
 Summer....there are so many things I love about you including this:

And this is so true....I feel human in the summer because I can sleep in & I have time during the day to get stuff done :)
I have 10 favorites to share with you today!

4th of July is one of my favorite days of the year.
Our friends have their annual French Toast Breakfast that we go to in the morning.
There is a face painter & balloon guy & bounce house. Such a fun morning!
Then we walk down to the parade.
 I love our little hometown parade :)
 After the parade, we headed home. Usually we have a big 4th of July party at our house, last year we didn't have it because our kitchen was under construction & this year we didn't have it because our backyard is under construction.  Our other friends who also have a 4th of July party had their party on the 3rd this year, so we had a free afternoon, so we swam! I made the kid 4th of July ice cream sandwiches:
And chocolate dipped strawberries:
 We BBQ'd for dinner & Kate wanted a pie for dessert so I made a berry pie with a star crust :)
It was a fun & mellow 4th of July!
I am slightly obsessed with Rompers this summer.
Here are some of my favorite rompers...and they are on sale!

Love THIS one...so comfortable!
 You can't go wrong with a solid black romper like THIS one...it can be dressed up or down:

I also like THIS one because it has sleeves (it also comes in olive or rust)

Rompers are so comfy! All of the ones I posted aren't too short for me...I am 5'9 and the small & medium sizes fit!

Napa is my favorite!
 I had the privellege of heading to Napa Valley last weekend to have a business launch party for one of the girls on my team!

Such a fun day!

This long wear Lip Gloss is my all time Favorite

Get it HERE

I heard from a girl at the MAC counter that they are discontinuing it...I am bummed about that, so I am STOCKING up!
I have 3 of the colors. They stay on for hours! Best lip gloss EVER! Get it while you can!

This might be my new favorite quote ;)
Of course I need Jesus & my family also....and coffee....and wine ;)
But, speaking of Gardens & Library's....if you missed my Garden update yesterday, you can check it out HERE

One of my favorite things to have for breakfast lately is this egg scramble. It's 2 eggs, some grated zuchinni from my garden, tomatoes from my garden & a sprinkle of cheddar cheese. Of course I add Chalula on top because it's my favorite! YUM!

Eating food from my garden is my favorite!

Speaking of books...I am currently reading this series and it might be my new favorite:
I saw book 3 in the Free Little Library down the street. 
As I read the description on back of the book, I saw it was book 3 of a series called the "Women's Murder Club" Because I am OCD & can't read books out of order, I went to the library & got the first 2 books in the series! 
I've already finished the first two....they are really good & like the characters. I also love that it is based in San Fransisco & other parts of the Bay Area! Can't wait to read the rest...there are 15 books in the series!!! Perfect summer reading! Anyone else read them?

You can read about the series HERE

Going to the Fair is one of our favorite summer activities.
This was the first year that we went to the big area of the Fair with the "Big" rides and not the kiddie rides.
They were so excited to check out this part of the Fair....some of the rides are SKETCHY!
 Like these swings...I won't let my kids go on them...I do like taking pics of the swings, so pretty!
 We went to a magic show & Claire was picked to be the magician's assistant :)
My favorite part of the fair is the Pig Races...so fun!

We had so much fun at the fair....we stayed until after 5...we've never stayed that long!
Do you love the Fair?

It gets rid of sun damage, age spots & pregnancy melamsa.
I use Reverse in the morning & Redefine at night, just like her!

The Warriors are my favorite basketball team..
It was rough losing in the Finals to the Cavs after we had a 3-1 lead.
But, the news of Kevin Durant signing with us this week made me cheer up!
Welcome to Dub Nation, KD!

Have a great weekend!


  1. Those salads look delish and the Women's Murder Club series by JP is my favorite, too! Enjoy!

  2. Your BLT salad is a staple in our home! We fight over who gets to eat the bottom remains of the bowl! :)

  3. I've been waiting for you to talk about KD ever since I saw he signed. This upcoming season will be magical!!

  4. Liking those rompers -- I think I am going to get the short-sleeved one. I am glad that I have your tall girl seal of approval because they did look a smidge short. *5'9" high-five*

  5. I can't wait to try out a few more of the salads. I tried the Cowboy Salad when you posted it and thought it was so good! We are from OK and my son, in particular, it not very happy about KD's move. =)
