FRIDAY FAVORITES: SUMMER EDITION


Ahh Friday! 
Summer!! It's here it's really here I cannot Believe it! We've waited a long time for this! What are you looking forward to the summer? I'm looking forward to our yearly family vacation to Lake Michigan, our County Fair, which is the second largest County Fair in the country, lighter meals, extra exercising because it doesn't feel like exercising because it's fun outside, fresh strawberries and vegetables, homemade ice cream and my first favorite just name a few, sunsets!!

1. SUNSETS


 These pictures are from Lake Michigan.
I've seen a lot of sunsets and let me tell ya, Lake Michigan sunsets are more beautiful than the Caribbean. Maybe it's just us because we're "Smitten with the Mitten" but they will take your breath away sometimes. 





Carrie from Curly Crafty Mom said her and her husbands favorite summertime activity is a sunset paddle-boat picnic. Doesn't that sound wonderful!!


2. BAJA STYLE FISH TACOS 
 Can you believe I had never had fish tacos until last Summer!! Now I'm in love and pray they'll be on the menu. Here are some scrumptious ones to make at home!!

3. PLEASING PANTRY
 Some serious ingredients and gadgets stored in here! The doors have it that's for sure!!


 
 4. WORK ATTIRE

You'll notice with two of the tops, I am into the see through sweater trend. Nice way to wear a lightweight sweater and not really get hot with the simple cami underneath.

5. Ice Cream Cone for Dinner 

Yep, I knew no one was going to be home last night for dinner so I had my indulgence for the week. One dip of Lemon on a sugar cone and ate it on the drive home from work. 
Heaven!!






 Let me tell ya, there is a reason this ice cream institution is tops in the state and in the top 33 in the country. It is the BEST!
(My husbands favorite is peanut butter and the butter pecan is delish too, well every flavor is amazing here!!)


 Happy, Happy Summertime Weekend friends. Enjoy!

  9. I love that necklace that you are wearing with your mint cardigan! I went for a walk along the lakefront yesterday and I was thinking the same thing about the sunsets. And the lake itself. It's incredible how big it is and how much it looks like the ocean. :-) That ice cream looks delicious too. I hope that you have a fabulous weekend lady! :-)

  18. I love when you get to eat alone and you eat whatever the heck you want without guilt. Every Wednesday night my husband takes our daughter to trumpet lessons and I fend for myself. Sometimes I eat normal things like sushi and other nights I have popcorn and wine or an Italian ice. Yummo.

  19. I haven't had fish tacos in ages and need to rotate them back into our meal planning! Lemon ice cream sounds delicious and having it for dinner makes it even better! Have a great weekend!
