Fave Friday

It’s Friday.  I survived the last week of school, lovelies (with a little baby jail going on today).  But I suppose the real question is . . . will I survive the first day of summer (I’m sure I’ll let you know later today over on twitter).  Sometimes I feel really great and excited about summer break and sometimes I feel nothing short of panicky (just keeping it real).  This feeling usually changes from moment to moment (lets talk more about this next week, shall we?).  For now, I’m going to go with excited, as it is Friday, after all, and long weekend with that!

And speaking of the long weekend do you have any great plans?  I think we are just going to get a few things done around the yard.  I need to spray paint some outdoor furniture and honestly, I can’t get my mind off of this blue.  I’m thinking of spray painting our wrought iron table white and the chairs blue?

And another thing about blue, L graduated from Kindergarten last night.  Seriously, this boy could not be any cuter, he is going to be a lady killer, I’m afraid.  But besides being cute, he is, of course, one really special kid.  He is as sweet as all of the candy he tries to sneak when he thinks I’m not looking.  And speaking of candy… I think you should eat a little extra this weekend or whatever sweet it is that you like to sneak.  It is a holiday after all.  And I think with that, you just ought to pretend you are on holiday.  Yep, I wish that for you.  Happy Weekend, lovelies.  xo . t

< a F E W of my  F A V E S  this week >

01 / I just bought a chambray shirt (which I love) + am loving all of the styling ideas found here.

02 / You know I love the desert.  You too?  Totally loving the desert look in the new issue of La Petite.

03 / Trying to get better with your camera?  Same here.  A great little lesson for me + you.

04 / Remember the boots I said I wanted (not going to happen) well, check out the DIY version that I would totally try to make if I was as crafty in real life as I am in my head.

05 / Want to cook this weekend?  You could start with this and end with that.

06 / I’m loving all of the words over here.

    Hey Trina, Good luck wrangling all the littles this summer. I’m sure you’ll have plenty of fun. You always do. And let us see your patio set if you paint it. That blue is pretty awesome.
    Question. I noticed your cow skin rug in the pic above. What do you think of it as far as cleaning and wear? The hubs is wanting one in our new house instead of a traditional rug.

    Happy Weekend!

    Thank you, Jo! So far so good with the rug. It was in our living room, so it really didn’t get much traffic. Ask me in a couple of weeks and I might have another story. I’m not really sure how to clean it. I don’t even think I’ve tried to vacuum it? But now that it is in a main room that we are always in, I need to figure that out. My only complaint is that the ends kind of curl up a bit. But I’m pretty happy with it! xo .t

    Hee enjoy the summer hols Trina, I know you will make it through just think PJ days & relaxed evenings as no rushing to get the kids to bed, (well not to late) but you know what I mean.

    Enjoy the start of summer :)
