Ya’ll, the weekend is near. Do you ever have one of those weeks where you just feel like it’s never ending?! This has been the busiest week in quite a while. You can catch me this afternoon running out the door and heading straight for a glass of wine. 

It’s all about balance my friends, balance. 

Book Recommendations: We are heading on a trip soon and I am desperately searching for a new read. Tell me ya’ll… what are some quick and easy books you recommend?! We have a few trips coming up so I need a few!

Floral Prints: In case you missed it, this floral print dress is gorgeous. You can read all about why I love it, here.

Summer Entertaining: One thing you may not know about me is that I have an obsession with kitchen plates. Yes, plates. Isn’t it normal to collect dishes for every season? Please tell me I’m not the only one! I added these navy and white ones to my spring collection and I might have ordered this melamine serving platter for summer too! Ya’ll…and these napkins! Okay, I need to stop now.

Inflatable Drink Holders: I’ve been dreaming of laying by the pool hopefully here in a few short weeks and this inflatable pool float is much needed. There’s just too many to choose from – flamingos, pineapples, and even donuts! I’m already planning on bringing one with us on our summer vacation.

Fitness: Philip and I joined Orange Theory Fitness and have been going the past few weeks. We love the group atmosphere and have definitely been pushing ourselves with each workout. I think it’s time to reward myself – have you seen this collection? I could buy everything.

Tonight we’re off to our weekly Friday date! Funny story – The past few weeks we’ve been visiting this local restaurant that my husband enjoys, especially during lent. Anyways, we’ve been there the past few Fridays and last week when we walked into the restaurant our dinner was already waiting for us… in the same booth we’ve been sitting in. Apparently the waiter noticed we had been there a few times and have been ordering the same meal. I’ve had a few baristas at Starbucks remember my drink before, but never an entire meal. I’m not sure whether to be embarrassed or lucky that I know my meal will be ready when I head to dinner tonight. Anyways, happy Friday friends!

    That navy and white serve wear is gorgeous! I don’t blame you for adding those to your collection. If I had the space I would definitely collect more plates. Have a great date night and a fabulous weekend!

    I can give you lots of book recommendations! Last year I read 39 books and this year so far I’m on book 11. What types of books are you looking for?
