Friday Favorites – Hey June!

Hey June, nice to see you! Today just happens to be my last Friday as a 54 year old – tomorrow is my birthday. Fridays are always a favorite but especially this one because I am off today! My husband and I are headed to a local resort for a little staycation and our sons will join us tomorrow. When I think of turning 55 I cannot get the Sammy Hagar song out of my head – remember “I Can’t Drive 55?”

Funny little story, my first car was a 1977 Camaro. The air did not work – so my brother in law’s father used to tease me and tell everyone my car had 260 air conditioning. What was that? It was what he called 2 windows down and driving 60 MPH – basically the only way to get cool!

Friday Favorites – Hey June!

Birthdays are a favorite – I don’t mind one bit getting older. I really don’t. But it does make me realize that I MUST make things happen – time is of the essence! I am still trying to figure out what I want to do when I grow up, you know, what is it that I really would like to be doing? The even better question, will I have the courage to do it and make it happen? These are the things I ponder as I close the book on 54 and usher in 55. Another point to ponder? If I join AARP will I get great discounts on things I like???

How I’m Ushering in 55

I’ll be headed to the nail salon for a pedicure (and maybe a mani) this morning. My next stop will be a spray tan. Then my husband and I will head to the resort. He booked a 90 minute facial for me – will I have a new face or what? Tonight we have a reservation at the bougie steak house at the resort! I can hardly wait!

We will get to sleep in – no dog waking us up!!! My husband reserved a cabana at the pool and the boys will meet us to spend the day poolside. We’ll have a casual dinner, play some cards and call it a night! The boys have rooms at the resort for Saturday night and we’ll all head home on Sunday.

That’s how I’ll celebrate this year. I am looking forward to a fun weekend with the people I love!

Favorites from Last Weekend

Last weekend my best friend brought me a very special birthday cake! We celebrated a week early – why not, right? This cake came from Gideon’s Bakehouse and it was not only HUGE but delicious. The flavor? Cookie butter. I felt so very special!

We celebrated my niece and nephew last weekend with a combined graduation party. I wore this cute dress and got so many compliments! I wore a hate because I was having a bad hair day!

Lately I feel like I have not had much time to read, which is a shame because I love reading. I did finish reading “I’ll Stop the World” by Lauren Thoman. It was a freebie on Kindle and it was so good! I highly recommend!

We managed to watch the movie “Air” on Prime last weekend as well. To be honest, I never wanted to see it but boy am I glad I did! The movie was excellent and stars Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Jason Bateman and my favorite: Viola Davis! It’s the story of how Nike created the Air Jordan. Watch it!!

What I’ve Been Wearing

I had some fun this week shopping my closet. By scrolling my Pinterest, I was inspired to re-create a few looks and I think they turned out pretty good.

Thrilled to wear my new vest – this inspiration photo caught my eye because I had all the pieces needed to re-create it!

I wore this outfit on Thursday – my linen joggers replaced the white denim from the inspo photo and I swapped my sandals for the sneakers.

Final Thoughts

Thanks so much for being here today. I really am honored to have you stop by! If you haven’t already, please sign up to receive my posts by email and be sure to follow me on Instagram and Pinterest!
