FRIDAY FAVORITES...ICE CREAM EDITION

Happy Happy Friday loves! It’s been a great sun shiny week with lots of pool chillin’! Maybe an ice cream scoop or two. And Yes, yes, I did participate a bit in the #NSale but I won't bore you with that just yet. Except for this reply form the gotta be giddy Nordstrom Marketing Crew:

How about you? Hope it’s been a great Summer week and here’s to the weekend! I'm headed to a Farmer's stand today for the first sweet corn of the season so tonight it's BLT's and buttery Corn on the Cob for dinner! 

1. Blogger Spotlight: 
Amy Ann from Straight A Style
Amy Ann Happens to be one of my favorite fashion bloggers in the entire world!! She is a tall (she is 5’10”) glass of pure sunshine!! I think I have pretty much adored everything she has ever worn and her color palettes inspire! Amy Ann and her husband have been blessed with little Ivy Jean who is always styling just as sweetly as her mama. Was so tickled the week to see her in such a lovely Pineapple Print Dress. Amy Ann always sports the CUTEST statement shoes so you will LOVE this post on How to Style Them! We share a major love for kimonos snd This Kimono she styled is one of my all-time favorites! Something else I adore about this Princess is her modesty and love of midi dresses. Just look how angelic she looks in This one! She also has a knack for Styling a piece in several ways!! I thought she was perfect of this summer ice cream edition of Friday Favorites because her colors often remind me of sweet ice cream shop hues!! Adore this Jesus loving mama and style sensation!
 
Amy Ann is drop dead GORGEOUS inside & out!
Isn't this BLUE DRESS Dreamy!!
Race to check out her BLOG!

2. ICE CREAM of Course
Here’s where the whole ice cream theme came in play some more. I do not generally buy store ice cream unless it’s for pie or Cobbler and I’m spoiled because we have one if the top ten ice cream joints in the country. My second favorite ice cream spot is the Dairy Maid we go to on our vacation. I indulged right and it gave Mr. Nine and I an idea. History Channel are you listening? We should travel the country and commentate on all the ice cream shops. Here’s the damper on our reality show, I’m ready for the camera, Mr. Nine, not so much. Good thought honey, we’ll just stick to our occasional scoops of goodness, lol.

Playing around with the AMAZON ECHO CAMERA  for these next two.



4. SUNDAY FUNDAY
I cannot even tell you how much I love this Minty Tank. It is actually from the pajamas section of Target but I threw it on for last Sunday’s Funday festivities. It is sooooo soft!! And I love the bright lemon yellow in it and it’s only 12.99! Look at the scalloped hem!

5. Misc. Fun
Speaking of Sunday Funday
Scenes from Sunday Fun Day! We had come back from vacation on Saturday but not wanting to end our family fun time, we headed to a friend’s Lake Home get together. Had a blast. Lots of boating, water volleyball, grub, cocktails, badminton, relaxing and chatting. 


I made my Blueberry Crunch Parfait to take and it was a huge hit. Recipe calls for strawberries but this is how I made it for the Bursting with Blueberries contest. 
Recipe HERE

My Favorite Purchase from #NSale Yesterday
Caslon Varsity Striped Tee
5 weeks from tonight and It’s Friday Night Light’s Baby! Our boy will be a Senior, uninjured and starting with the Team. These are their colors, it was under $25 and I’ve heard, even cuter in person. I won’t shove anymore #NSale down your throat this week so I’ll leave it here for now. LOL 
BUY HERE

Tiki Toss 
Such a cool story about the Tiki Toss game! When we were on vacation as I told you on Monday, The kids played this game at the distillery. They both made ringers and the waitress said she hadn’t seen anybody do that yet. Well, when we got home a birthday package was waiting for Mr. Nine from his little sweet sister. Guess what was inside? TIKI TOSS!! And she didn’t even know we’d been playing it. Perfect addition to the pool area! 
BUY HERE

Here are the boys playing it on vacay.

Get your TIKI on and Have a fabulous weekend darlings! 
Make sure to link up all your favorite post(s) of the week too!

  13. We always looked forward to the local ice cream shop opening for summer when we spent them in MI. And, Amy Ann is just the cutest! Just proof that being fashionable doesn't mean you have to give up modesty.

  15. I'm so glad you had a great week weather wise and relaxing in the poo! That's the best way to enjoy those summer days. Tummy, I'm coming over for dinner ;) How awesome Nordstrom tweeted you back! Yess to all the ice cream! We're planning on grabbing some this weekend. I hope you have a great one!

  16. I haven't seen Tiki Toss! Looks like a lot of fun! Love the top for Nordstrom!And a tweet from them! Exciting!!! That icecream sounds delish. Love the blue dress on Amy Ann. She looks stunning! Your weekly outfits are always so cute! Enjoy that pool!

  17. I love ice cream when it settles with me. I wish I were 5'10. I need a lake house and that blueberry parfait. But I'm just going to be mediocre me and be 5'4, sipping water (and maybe a Diet Coke) dreaming of a lake house, questioning yogurt. LOL! Love ya. Happy weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Amy is just absolutely precious! I will have to shop her site more often...did not realize she is 5'10". Soft serve chocolate is like my fave ice cream and it's a rare find in Texas. Lake time looks like the very best time...give me the water every day. Tan on point! Happy Friday!

  19. I love that Tiki Toss game- gotta get it for our set up! Have a great weekend.

  20. That is too funny Mr Nine received that game after you had been playing it on vacation! That shirt from Nordstrom is cute!!! What else did you get?? I have seen a lot of cute tops in the jammies section that I feel are more casual lazy day tops than sleepwear. Hope you have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  21. That shirt will look great on you. Apparently Sunday is national ice cream day! I have a shirt meant to be a pj shirt too from Old Navy and I love it!

    ReplyDelete
  22. It is really hot here today so some ice cream may be on today's agenda! Or tonight's. :-) Love your Sunday Funday shirt too!! Have a fantastic weekend! :-)

  23. Your traveling ice cream review job is pure genius. If Mr. Nine won't go, I'll be your partner and we can turn it into the best ice cream joints and how to wear a moo-moo to cover your ever growing self...LOL!!!! That blueberry creation! YUM! So fun about the Tiki Toss game. I guess it was meant to be. This was a great Friday Favs sweet friend. Have the best weekend! XOXO

  24. I'm so so glad you had such a wonderful vacation, and I'm with you on ALL the ice cream! I prefer to have it served rather than store-bought, and I don't care if that makes me difficult haha how cool is it that Nordstrom tweeted you back?! I can't wait to see what you got. Also, I just love your blogger spotlights! They always help me find someone new ;) happy weekend!

  25. You'd be perfect on any kind of reality show! Have a great weekend friend!

  26. I actually have seen so many tees in the pj section at Target recently where I'm like, "Can I wear that out?" - you just made that OK for me :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Well you have made my day! THANK YOU SO MUCH for the feature but more than that for your sweet, sweet words about me. I couldn't appreciate it more. You are such a light and a joy! Your ice cream place looks so good, and I will have to check out that toss game. So fun!

  29. If Mr. Nine won't join you on that ice cream trip, I will gladly volunteer! LOL. You know our family always seeks out ice cream and donuts on vacations! Haha.

  30. We often try new ice cream places and stands; especially while on vacation. I just love seeing (and trying!) all the different flavors

    ReplyDelete
  31. Ha! Yep! Mr. Nine and I will just watch you prance all around America from the couch! He sounds like an introvert like me and is more than happy not to participate! We would cheer you on!! But it’s an awesome idea! I’ve got to look into that Tiki game! I’ve never heard of it! Have a great weekend, Blondie!!!

  32. Well we have a lot in common because Amy Ann is one of my favorite bloggers as well and I LOVE ice cream. I don't know if you have Aldi grocery stores by you, but they have a natural, 4 ingredient ice cream that I love. And your mint tank is so cute! I love mint for summer!
