12 January 2018


Hello sweet peeps! I love this day! It may have gone from a record of 59 yesterday to a high of 19 degrees today and freezing sleet turning to snow but I'm happy. I'm doing a little decor shopping today, some organizing and enjoying a precious day!! I've mentioned to some how I want not one, but 2 bar carts. My first one came from World Market but was nicked! The store is an hour away but I called and they have 3 in stock so Mr. Nine and I are headed up there tomorrow to get it. 
Cannot wait to show it to you!
1.Birthday Celebration Night Out
We do this the last Friday night of break every year but decided to celebrate all 3 since we never took the other two out for their birthdays. 
A very fun night! 

This precious boy of ours has a birthday today!! Lucky to have another Friday night of fun, this time at college. Hate that we cannot be with them on their birthdays but sending so much LOVE!

2 . Even More Family Fun
I showed you this fun red dress on Wednesday but thought you might enjoy a couple other pics. Just look at Daisy looking up at us!

Mom found the cutest pineapple paper for my gifts. 

My favorite pic of boys while all home. Sure missing the two college boys on the right already! Here's to a GREAT 2nd semester and last semester of 11th grade for the baby on the left!

This is how you do Prosecco..double fisted, lol!

3. Work Attire
Kohl's sweater, Macy's necklace, Michael Kors flats

TJ Maxx top, scarf from Italy, DSW shoes

Target Cardi, Scarf, gift from Tami

4. Pardon My French
I got this cute tee and cardigan way back at the anniversary sale this summer but just now styled them and whoa, what I was missing. Comfy and fun! I know you may not think I am a curser but YES, the words do escape my mouth form time to time....occasionally, lol.

Aren’t these the coolest little planters my sister-in law got me for Christmas. Going to put them in my office. You can get very cute fake succulents and greenery at Hobby Lobby!

Still time to sign up for the gift exchange HERE

I served up these pretties at the Holidays because they are too time consuming to make. How cool to get all these flavors in a multi pack at Sams! BUT, it was just announced our Sam's Club is closing..Bummer!

CUTE Book on Macarons!

I hope your weekend is precious and light like a Macaron!!

  8. Such sweetness with your family. My how your oldest resembles your hubby. Macaroons at Sam's...well, I never! How wonderful! Have a weekend that is as beautiful as you!

  9. Your sons are so handsome! When both of ours our home, I stare at them and marvel at what they've become.

    Are you having so much fun in your new house? I know you are!! We just got curtains hung in our dining room this past week. Only set that will be in the whole house but I love them.

    Have a great weekend. :)

  10. So I've never had a macaron! There is a place kind of near me that I've been meaning to try for months but still haven't gone to. My friend is coming into town tonight so maybe we'll go this weekend. What a fun birthday celebration for all of the boys! Double fisting is the way to go! Happy Friday!

  11. We made it to Friday! Hip hip hooray! My littlest sister is still home from school for a few days, but she'll be headed back soon. Just when you get used to seeing them again, they leave! I am sure you'll have fun on your bar cart exchange adventure and I can't wait to see it all styled! Have a wonderful weekend!

  12. Seriously it was like a heat wave here yesterday and now it's back to freezing!! All our snow is gone now too, boo!! Love the pics of the boys and I can't imagine not being with them on their birthdays! Ahh why do my kids have to grow up!? Love that cute tee!! Hope you have a great weekend!

  13. Good Lord sure do surround yourself with beautiful people!! :) I love the pineapple paper. Everytime I see a pineapple anything I think of you and smile. And YES!!!...That is definitely how you Prosecco girl!! LOL

  14. Oh man. Sorry to hear that your Sam's Club is one of the ones that is closing. I just heard that on the news yesterday. Such a bummer! Glad you got to celebrate all three boys birthdays while they were home from school. Have a great weekend, Andrea!

  15. I love your tee, your family is beautiful, I also love prosecco and I'm so glad I found your blog! If you have a Costco near by, they have the same macaroons!

  16. Macarons are so pretty! But are they made out of coconut? I don't like coconut! We had the same thing with the major temperature drop, which was why they expected freezing yesterday and we had a snow day!

  17. Your family simply couldn't be more beautiful! Love that you enjoyed such a sweet celebration together! I'm sure your mama heart is overflowing just thinking on all that cherished family time and the new memories created! Your dress is super cute and your mom's wrapping paper was pineapple perfection! Happy shopping - can't wait to see your bar carts! xo - Brenda // Chatting Over Chocolate

  18. Love your pardon my french outfit. And those macarons.... YUM.

    Your momma finding that wrapping for you... She's just the cutest,

  32. I love World Market. I bought a bread box there a few weeks ago that I just love!

  33. First, I can't believe you have 3 boys and two are already in collage! You look so great and I just adore your style! Second, the cute planter is just what I am looking for, thank you so much for sharing!

    Please stop by at every Monday, Wednesday and Friday for linkup parties! Hope to see you there!

  34. Love your opening shot. Love all your pics, in fact. Love your casual outfit. Love all your outfits, in fact. Most of all, I Love YOU!

  35. Happy Birthday to your baby! Love that picture of the three of them, so sweet. That pineapple wrapping paper is super fun! Love the big bow on it too. I have three pairs of MK flats (sort of similar to your first picture) and love love love them! MK and Cole Haan are really the only flats I will wear. I hope you have a fabulous weekend, cant wait to see the bar cart!

  36. The weather has been crazy this week! That Pardon My French tee is so cute :)

  37. Such a fun birthday celebration with everyone!

  38. Happy birthday to your boys! It looked like such a fun celebration! Those macaroons look delicious and I am looking forward to seeing your bar cart. That's terrible that the one sent to you was nicked.

  39. Your guys are all so handsome. I think there are about 3 Sam's clubs in our area that are closing. I heard a rumor that they are making the closed stores into warehouse distribution centers for Have a wonderful weekend!

  40. Your boys are SO handsome! I wish I had bought that tshirt during the sale - so adorable. Have a great weekend friend!

  41. Your boys are so good looking-I can see how two resemble you, and the birthday boy seems to take after dad, who is also easy on the eyes! I'm glad you had so much fun before the college boys left.

    I love macarons, too, and yes, I've looked at recipes and they are insane to make. I was never much of a fan of Sam's Club--more so Costco. Cool stuff. We do have a Sam's Club a few blocks away--I wonder what they will do with that huge building.

    I so love your outfits, makes me more eager to lose some weight to go shopping again!

    Chicago is frigid, and I'm at the lake in Michigan for a long stretch. 16 degrees here and sledding is on the agenda tomorrow!

    Stay warm, my friend!

  42. I feel your love for your boys coming right through your post - thanks for sharing your gifts too. Your outfits are lovely, but you always look fab Andrea. x Jacqui

  43. Your boys are all so handsome...I stared at that picture of your entryway for awhile...I am loving your siding and colour scheme!

  44. Your boys are so handsome. It's so crazy how different they all look though. I don't think I'd ever pick them out as brothers. Love your Pardon my French shirt and cardi. I've been known to let a "french" word or two slip from time to time too😉. Of course your mom found that darling pineapple paper for your gifts. She's so good. Ugh about the bar cart, but yay that they have some in stock and you can swap's fun to go to World Mkt anyway. Kent just told me this week he read Sams closed a bunch of stores with no warning. YIKES. We don't have one near us, but I'd sure be a sad camper if they closed my Costco. Have the best weekend my beautiful blonde friend! XO

  45. Happy Birthday to your first born! Love to see them all together and I'm sure you are super happy when they are home. Love the tee shirt...I immediately had to check out what Amazon had. Still looking for an ooh-la-la shirt. Cute planters! The Urban Farmer keeps up on all that is going on in the world and he said that Sam's is closing a ton of stores. The Costco we use is a new one in Greenwood. Doesn't look like they will be closing any stores. Cute work outfits! A scarf is a wonderful thing... Stay warm...brrr...sick of this weather already. xoxo

  46. Could you be any prettier?!? I think not! I love your holiday dress! And what a fun birthday celebration with your whole family. Those boys are lucky to have you as their mama!

  47. LOVE your softer hairstyle!! And your darling boys!

  48. Those boys are so handsome!! I am also loving that t-shirt and think I might need to snag one. Hope your weekend was great (and you got that bar cart). Here's to a great week!

  49. Oh, those precious times with our kids! LOVE the French shirt and how you styled it. LauriePOP Ideas That POP
