FRIDAY FAVORITES MEMORIAL EDITION

It's here....the long Holiday weekend we've been waiting for.
 Let's cut right to the chase with my FIVE
 Friday Favorites so y'all can get onto partying!!

1. HOLIDAY WEEKEND FESTIVAL
 This is an annual Memorial weekend tradition. Craft beers from all over Michigan, all different kinds of homemade brats, fresh asparagus and homemade chips mixed with a summer ski resort atmosphere and
 two rocking bands. Can't wait!!


Last years fest was a glorious, sunny day. Fingers crossed for the same this year!!


2. MINI STARBUCKS FRAPPE
 (GREEN TEA FOR ME)
 I was so excited when they came out with the new Starbucks frappe mini. The first pic is of my beloved Green Tea Frappe but it is only a sample size but I LOVE miniature things.


Grande, Tall and the new 10oz Mini!

Let's talk calories

A Mini (10 oz) Coffee Light Frappuccino made with nonfat milk, which is the standard, is 60 calories and has 13 grams of sugar. A Mini (10 oz) Coffee Frappuccino made with whole milk, which is the standard, is 120 calories and has 24 grams of sugar. As with other sizes, there are various ways to customize the Frappuccino® including choosing the ‘light’ option, selecting nonfat or non-dairy (soy or coconut) milk, using sugar-free syrup, or asking for light or less whipped cream.
Sixty calories for the “light” option? Not too shabby. You’ll have to act fast, though, because mini Fraps will only be available until July 6 at participating stores throughout the U.S. and Canada which is the part that is NOT my favorite. Why not a mini forever!!


3. CUTE BACHELORETTE GIFT BAG
I know a lot of you are going to having girls nights and weekends full of bachelorette fun coming up this wedding season, so how about some cute packaging to go with?
 


4. WORK ATTIRE
I love to wear dresses to work but for some reason, this week just felt like pants and so I wanted to pull out some really cute tops 
for the week in work attire.
 
Loft Outlet sweater

J. Crew Factory Blouse

 Calvin Klein Blouse from Macy's

Which one do you like the best?
 


5.CUTE SUMMER CUPCAKES
Whether you have kids, grand kids or no kids, these are absolutely adorable and so easy & sure to be the hit at any of your summer parties coming up. 

Here is what you do: vanilla or white cupcakes and frost with buttercream frosting. Next, sprinkle crushed up graham crackers or the some of the teddy grahams for the sand. Cut fruit rolls up into pieces for the "beach towel" and adhere a teddy graham. Next, use lifesaver gummies for the inner tubes and finish off with a cocktail umbrella. 
You could even frost half in blue if you want to add a little "water"

Have fun, be safe, eat well and laugh til your side aches!!

  14. The beer festival sounds awesome!!! I love a good beer festival :) Love all your outfits this week, those are some fun shirts. I thought about getting a mini starbucks today but by the time I got to the board to order...it turned in to a venti nonfat iced caramel mochhiato. I needed all of the caffeine.
