FRIDAY FAVORITES....BYE APRIL

I know most of us say this about every month but April really is flying by and I am glad to see it go. It has been the worst Spring weather wise that I can remember but the weekend is finally looking up with 70-degree temps by Monday. What a week it has been…the Royal Baby has arrived, Joanna Gaines Cookbook came out and I finally shared My Walk-In Closet Tour.

1. Wining!!
Well, I was already wining when I got to watch baby boy play baseball in decent weather and Mr. Nine took me to an early dinner at a new restaurant with a raspberry martini. BUT then after dinner we each took $20 to spend in a new casino in our area and in 1 minute on a 25 cent machine, I won $140. Now, we are not gamblers but this sure was fun!!

2. Nature Where I Live..We have SWANS!!
Well, I feel like we have hit the SWAN jackpot! I love swans and a couple of beauties have descended upon our pond and let me get this close. They are beautiful and I am not only lucky with the nice home we built, but the land surrounding it is perfect for nature loving and walking! We actually have had a couple nice days for me to take it all in!

5. Misc. Fun
Target Mug Love
So, I randomly posted the Opal House Mug on Twitter Last Friday as I had showed it to you all in my Friday Favorites. Imagine my surprise when Target liked it and it went on to receive thousands and thousands of views. Crazy what one little cute mug can do and notice, I was enjoying coffee with the Pinks and Whites Cookies!

  9. That red dress looks fabulous on you! I really like the way you take an inspiration photo and recreate it. I need to try to remember that...I do have hundreds of photos pinned. :)

    So cool that your cup received notice by Target. I haven't been to the store yet to check out all of the Opal House goodies. Just might need to get out today. :)

    Have a great weekend!

  20. That is awesome that you won $140 in a minute; I'm usually just happy if my $20 will last for a few hours of fun because I don't gamble often or more than that. We had swans on our lake this week too! Two big beauties so I'm hopeful we'll have little cygnets soon.

  21. I have never been to a casino but would play in a heartbeat! Great win!
    I have a photo shoot this weekend in Florida, I always like to see what wardrobe they pick me to wear. I wish they would shop out of your closet!!! Haha.

  22. Yay! Congrats on winning! That is some luck right there. You actually just reminded me that I got scratch offs that I forgot to scratch. I love that you have swan friends to visit. That area looks so pretty and will make for some great walks. I hope you have a great weekend! Sierra~Beautifully Candid

  28. If any dictionary is looking for a short snappy definition of cute then look no further, guys: cute = Andrea. Job done.
    So cute in that red dress, my pretty!

    Adore your swans and your choice of location for Chateau Nine.

  29. Love those pineapple treats - what a fun surprise! Your neighborhood pond looks beautiful, and I bet you'll love walking there all summer. I can't wait to get the Magnolia cookbook, and I spy some trader joe's cookies with your coffee mug. Have a wonderful weekend!

  30. More pineapple goodies! So cute! Do you have your winnings earmarked for more pineapple pretties? You look adorable in the red dress with your denim jacket. Enjoy your weekend. I'm off to work in the flowerbeds. xoxo

  31. Go you on hitting the jackpot at the casino in 1 minute! I'm not a gambler either but love to throw $20 on a machine and see what comes out of it. I won quite a bit in Vegas. How gorgeous are those swans and the pretty nature walk you can take around your new home. I'm in love with all the KS pineapple things like that watch. So pretty!! Such a cute and thoughtful gift from Nadine. Enjoy your weekend gorgeous lady!

  32. I'm finally catching up on my blog reading from yesterday. It was a blur with prom #2 and getting over a bad cold (almost over)!! Love that red sundress! I love it with a jean jacket too. Yummy raspberry martini. Lady luck! How fun about the Target mug. The swans are beautiful. I hope you're enjoying some nice weather. We are finally getting some too!

  33. That red halter dress is so pretty!

  34. I've been struggling to get all my blogs read this week but hopefully I'll get caught up soon. We stopped by a casino to eat their buffet about 20 years ago and Tommy gave our kids $20 each to play the slots and our daughter won $500 in about 5 minutes. She had no idea what she was even doing. It was so funny and especially for non gambling folks.

    I need for you to come and help me pick out my clothes for NYC. :o))

    I do love pineapples and love your red dress and denim jacket. Happy weekend dearie!

  35. Congrats on your big win, Andrea. I love the red sundress. Have a wonderful week.

  36. WOW! So did you continue to play or take the money and run? That's awesome. Lady in red. Cute dress!!! I love the neckline and you look gorgeous in red. I love swans, they can just be mean though, so be careful. Great favorites friend! XO

  37. I'm not a gambler either, but that sure was a fun minute!! ;D Hooray for unexpected money, sunshine for the ball game, swans, and sweet gifts extending your birthday celebrations! So much fun!! Hope your weekend was so lovely and that that this week is off to a great start too! xoxo!

  38. Yay for winning $140, hopefully you walked away and didn't lose it! hehe. Hope you are having a great week!

  39. Congratulations on your lucky streak (or are you really a pro poker play,er I don't know, haha!). So nice you have Swans but I am wary of them. If fed too much protecting their nest then can be SASSY! It is as if in this country they know they are 'The Queen's Birds.' Love your green flowery top! You can really carry any colour! I have a dress the same but need a tan first! Hope you had a lovely week-end - Joanne x
