The weeks are just rolling along here for May with so many events and occasions to celebrate. We started the month with my nephew’s college graduation, then we took off to the beach for Mother’s Day and now we’re gearing up for more celebrations! Next week we have a years of service award celebration for my brother (he’s a deputy) and high school graduation for another nephew!
Last weekend we went to New Smyrna Beach Friday through Monday. We rented a condo along with my mother, sister and her family. The condo was lovely with plenty of space for all of us. We spent our days in the sun and our nights eating and playing cards and dice games! It was the perfect way to spend Mother’s Day!
Since there were nine of us and going to a restaurant seemed a hug chore we cooked. I know that might sound anything but relaxing but with a little prep work it was easy. We had leftover ham from Easter and I chopped it up, measured it out, and froze it. I made two breakfast casseroles with it hat were delicious! I also made a scrumptious french toast casserole two days in a row because it was that good! I used recipes from this post from Amy’s Coffee and Cocktails at the Casa. Definite winners!
Although you might be tired of hearing me go on and on about my swimsuit but I thought I’d share how much I loved wearing it at the beach and pool. In fact my mother and sister both loved it and I ordered one for my mom! Not only that but I am ordering another for myself in a different color. Here’s why. For years I have been wearing tankini swimsuit tops with swim skirts. While comfortable the tops never really seemed to hold me in and give me the support I wanted. I wore this swimsuit all day on Saturday and it never stretched out, never needed adjusting! On Sunday I wore one of my other suits and the top kept sliding around, drove me crazy!
Something else that didn’t let me down is this Hydroxatone BB Cream. It goes on so well and provides some coverage but the best part is the sun protection. I never had to reapply! I came home with 0 sunburn – that is always my goal! I wear it when I walk or run outside. It is fantastic! It comes in a 2 pack and is under $30!
Even though I am pretty casual at the beach I still like my accessories! I pack them in this and then hang it in the closet. It keeps everything organized and easy to grab and wear! An organizer like this keeps things from getting tangled.
Well that wraps up this week’s Friday Favorites! I hope you have a wonderful weekend filled with lots of happiness and good memory making!
