FRIDAY FAVORITES...4TH OF JULY EDITION

Happy Friday Loves! My Mr. is off today and celebrates a BIG Birthday tomorrow. He’ll be spending it in his favorite place on the planet with our family and I couldn’t be more excited!! Goodbye June, Hello July..may it be full of Summer Sweetness! Let's get to it!

1. BLOGGER SPOTLIGHT:
Tanya from The Other Side of the Road
Sweet Tanya blogs over at The Other Side of the Road and after getting to know her, I wished she lived across the road. What a fun neighbor she’d be! What a gem and an incredible mom and wife. Her kids, both teens named Grace and Jack, are smart, talented and beautiful inside and out just like their mama. Tanya lives in Texas and kept such an upbeat attitude when Hurricane Harvey damaged their home and they had to move out for months during the renovations. Did you now they lived in England for a time? You'll love her posts on her time there HERE and HERE. You will absolutely LOVE the story how she met her adoring husband Michael. Some of Tanya's favorite posts this year and mine included Their Spring Break trip to California and an awesome time seeing HAMILTON! Tanya is a fellow Amazon Prime lover like me as you know from my Monday Post. Her most recent Prime Purchases Post is just full of goodness! Can you believe this doll has been blogging for 14 years!! She's an incredible cook too, just check out her Recipe's Page. Tanya's table is filled with love and her blog will make you smile! Just love her!

2. Parade Of Homes and Our Barn Door
Mr. Nine and I had a day date last Saturday to our Parade of Homes. Local builders showcase one of their construction completions and have a week-long parade of all the homes for folks to tour. We’ve been going for years and last year, we got a lot of ideas for home. This year, we basically just went to talk with our builders and get decoration and landscape inspiration. Of all the homes one of our builders had our favorite one.
Look how excited I was to go and Mr. Nine's Chuck Taylor shoes matched my dress!

Pretty Home by our favorite Builder! 

Our Finished Door!
Absolutely love our new barn door! It’s actually a door just like our other craftman interior doors but put on the track with a nice chunky handle. It divides our master bedroom and the bathroom and closets.

3. WEEK'S ATTIRE
Leading up to the 4th, all very Americana themed of course!

  27. That could be dangerous to tour homes each year; my poor husband would never get a break from home improvement projects. As it is I had to stop watching HGTV... I was overloaded with ideas.

  28. You and your hubby are THE CUTEST!!! And love the blogger spotlight you feature because I love getting to check out other bloggers! Such a great idea!

  29. Its been a long time since I looked at new homes other than online. Our town does a Christmas homes tour in December and I love getting ideas from beautiful homes.
    Im loving the light grays and whites the new homes are showcasing now.

    I like all those outfits your modeling today. My favorite is the red and white with the red shoes.
    Ill joining in on the “TBB Ask” next week!
    Have a wonderful weekend
