FRIDAY FAVORITES....HELLO JUNE

I love June, usually not yet too hot, the fun days of summer have begun and I get the month to look forward to the 4th fun around the corner!! Hello sweet June and HELLO FRIDAY!!! Love these short weeks! Mr. Nine called me yesterday and said, we're headed to Chicago again to see U2 Saturday Night at Solider Field! Just a day trip but Super excited seeing as they were majorly a part of my 1980's!! Come on Bono and Friday Favs....


1. Family Day
Yep, I was one happy Mama last Saturday when we found a time that the whole crew could do a Family day!! Pizza at an old school joint we love, The Lounger Theater to see "Baywatch" (Super Funny) and the Apple store so one boy could replace a phone that went uh, swimming, lol.
And Have you tried the Caramel M&M's? I squealed with delight when I saw the theater had them. Sooo good!
2. DIFFERIN GEL
YES!!!! So, I am not one to have botox or stuff injected, so when I was at the dermatologist for my skin check a couple weeks ago, I sad "Doc, I wold like something for wrinkles." He smiled and said I was in luck because now, over the counter, right there on the shelves of Target is this amazing gel!!! Just came out a few weeks ago. It says it is for Acne but it is the latest advancement in fighting wrinkles and it is only $29.99. So far, so good, gives a little tight feeling to the skin, I have had no redness or breakouts and a small diminish in crows feet. Hope it continues to work magic!!
3. Week's Attire
Kohl's (gift from my son for Mother's day) top. Michael Kors pants.

The Loft sweater and necklace, Target top

Chelsea 28 top from Nordstrom, The Loft Pants

4. Poppy Red/Orange
I adore this color and even got a dress in this color in Toronto for a brunch wedding later this summer.
Adore this ensemble.

Loved this look yesterday from my friend  Rachel from A Blonde's Moment

5. Impromptu Trip to Chicago
Monday was mine and Mr. Nine's wedding anniversary. The past couple years we haven't done anything major and didn't look like we would this year as weather looked kind of crappy. We kept watching the forecast and Sunday morning, just said "Let's Go!" We packed a bag quick and drove to Chicago and had the best time. 
The weather ended up being picture perfect.
Our Favorite Chicago Hotel is The Loews!
More on this Last Minute get away on Monday!!

Now go get going on your summer fun, bucket list or no bucket list, just enjoy this sweet June weekend!!

  7. How fun to go to Chicago twice in a week! Happy Anniversary. I love that you were able to squeeze in a family day. I have not tried those M&M's but I am sure they would be my newest favorite candy. I love that leopard clutch. Have the best weekend at U2. Say hello to Bono for me. Happy Friday Mama!

  14. Oh my...I have so much to say. Shocking! LOL First, you guys are so cool taking a quick trip to Chicago to go to a U2 concert! Love it! Differen...I just bought it a few weeks ago for my daughters acne at Target. (we actually ended up at the doctor for it this week and are adding a topical antibiotic along with the Differen) I've used it in the past for occasional break outs and fine lines and my son had it prescribed for acne years ago. (Now, on a side note. I wouldn't be a good blogger friend if I didn't say I'd love for you to try Rodan + Fields.😉😉 I absolutely love the products!!!!) So you liked Baywatch? I told the hubs I bet it would be super funny, but super stupid. Now I'm thinking we should grab Katie and head to our lounger theater and see it. Because let's face it, once you've watched a movie in a lounger theater you just don't want to see one if a regular theater. Last but definitely not least CARAMEL M&M's!!!! As soon as I complete this clean eating bootcamp I'm doing, I'll be on the hunt for those. I am an M&M girl through and through!!! Have a weekend as gorgeous as you are my friend!!! XOXO

  15. What a great way to spend your family day last Saturday! Good to hear you liked Baywatch -- we going to see it while we were on vacation but never got around to it. Thanks for sharing my post! I'm seriously obsessed with that top. I'm going to order a few more colors I think! Have a great weekend, Andrea!

  19. I can't wait to hear about your anniversary trip! Love the turquoise/coral/red combo on you- super cute! Baywatch may be a fun date night for me and Robert. We always tease Ari that her boyfriend is John Cena, but she said she loves the Rock now, so she may be jealous if we go! Going to have to try those M&Ms! Have fun at the concert- they were just in Houston and made the news for stopping at Whataburger (a Texas burger chain) on their way to the airport.

  23. Umm? U2 and not one but TWO trips to Chicago? Mr. Nine is on a roll!! U2 was actually in Dallas last weekend - or maybe the weekend before? - and some friends of ours went. Wayne said if he had known, we probably would have gone too. NOW he tells me! Enjoy your weekend!

  24. Chicago AND U2?? How awesome! I haven't been to Chicago yet but it is on my short list! It's a quick flight and I think it would be a perfect girl's weekend trip!

  26. So funny - I was going to text you and ask what that gel was - and here it is! George and Thomas saw U2 a few weeks ago in Seattle and it was amazing - have so much fun!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Glad you got some much needed time with the offspring! I remember Differin gel but I swear it was Rx back in the day? Right? You looked gorgeous in your reds and oranges. I hope you and Mr. Nine have a fabulous U2 weekend and you find what you're looking for (get what I did there??? Yes, I'm a dork!) XOXOXOX

  33. An impromptu trip to Chicago to see US?! How fun!! Happy wedding anniversary to you and the Mr. So happy to hear you got the whole family together on Memorial weekend and got to enjoy a day together. I just tried the caramel M&M's this because and OMG yummy! I was immediately sold because I love caramel.

  34. Awe! Your boys are super cute! I am glad you were able to spend some time with them. And I am obsessed with that red/orange top! I love your OOTD photos. I need to do that but I it's really hard. It might be easier now that it's light longer but I work 7:30am to 6pm so finding good light is hard! I hate taking phone photos but I just might have to! xoxo -Bri
