Hopping right into this super late edition of Five on Friday!
Hoe cute is this simple floral arrangement for a summer tablescape?
I found it via Southern Lady Magazine's facebook page and here are the instructions on how to make your very own, along with other options to use as your base like a pineapple or lemon. I'm going to attempt a variation of the watermelon at our next cookout.
The pretty kitchen from The Cottage Journal caught my attention as I was scrolling Facebook as well. I love how bright everything is, but also how the bold colors in the runner and the wood in the pendant lights above the island balance all the white. It's basically the kitchen of my dreams.
I ordered this adorable dress from www.scsugar,com earlier this week and can't wait to get it in the mail! I'm thinking it may end up being what I wear for our family beach photos here in a few weeks. They've got lots of other super cute new arrivals on their website right now as well. Sugar is one of my go-to online shops for cute clothes for myself.
I just finished up a book that I've been ready for the better part of the last month and a half. I usually try to finish a book every two weeks or so, but I just don't know where the time gets away to every day. It's like I wake up, I blink, then it's bedtime. Anyway, I've got this book on my nightstand ready to start tomorrow.
Has anyone read this book? Thoughts? I'll be sure and share my opinion on it when I finish it, but I remember they adapted this book into a television show a few years back and I loved the show. It only lasted one season, but I'd never read the book, so I figured why not?
We are trying a new spot for family vacation this year, North Topsail Island in North Carolina. If anyone has any recommendations, I'd really appreciate them. I'm beyond excited to get back to the coast. I feel like I belong at the beach. Every time we go, I can't find a good reason why we don't live at the beach, or at the very least, live much closer to it.
