FRIDAY FAVORITES...BYE AUGUST

So much to be thankful for this Fri-YAY!! The cool down with low humidity has arrived, it’s a long weekend, The Notre Dame Fighting Irish play tomorrow night and Baby Boy gets to play in his first Senior Year football game under the lights tonight!!!! While I am sad to see Summer leaving, I am SUPER Excited for the next 4 months of this sweet year!! Friday Favorites here we go!! 

1. Blogger Spotlight:
 Wrapping up the Summer Blogger Spotlight Series with a sweetie! Gina from On the Daily Express is a doll! I first started following Gina a few years ago and adored her style. It was when my pal Lisa told me how sweet and nice she was that I began corresponding more with her and she is the real deal!! She is so good at styling her clothes to show all the various ways they can be worn. I mean just look how cute she is in this outfit and she shows you even more ways to wear this awesome plaid top HERE. Obviously, Gina is great at what she does because she recently re-entered the work force as a Personal Stylist!! What a great job for someone with as great of tastes as Gina! Wish she lived down the road from me! She is a fellow Prime girl and showcases some fun Amazon finds HERE. She loves to read and I adore her choices. She had some great recommendations in her August Reviews. You'll love her sweet style, warm heart, and peaks into her Daily life! 
 
Just look how precious Gina is!

2. Beach Day with Mom
Every summer mom and I like to get at least one day up at our favorite Lake Michigan Beach town, St. Joe. It is about an hour drive and this latest visit was the perfect day. Beautiful, low humidity. We started out as we always do by walking around the little town and buzzing in the cute, various boutiques. They had added one called Friends by Design and it was decorated so cute with pinks and blacks and glam. Then, we head to our favorite restaurant there and have their loaded Baked potato soup, a cocktail and split a salad or sandwich. This day we split a chicken sandwich with provolone, pesto & aioli on a tomato infused focaccia bread, so good! Then we people watch on the beach and then change into workout clothes for a long walk before heading home. Fun Day!

3. Week's Attire
 This first look was actually inspired by Gina and you can see her cuteness HEREAs soon as I saw her shorts, I clicked over and got them. So comfy! They are on clearance for under $5!! Buy HERE! When Mr. Nine saw this outfit, he said "man early retirement is agreeing with you!" LOL
Hat HERE // Shorts HERE

  6. Good morning! I'm about to go to work but I wanted to slide by and at least read this post before I come home, curl up and read all the posts I have missed due to...life. Yes, sis, early retirement does look good on you! I'm so glad you and your mama had such a wonderful time together. That's a precious tradition! My mom has to have a hip replacement so we're trying to figure out the best time on the calendar - newsflash no time is good. UGH! I will be watching your Fighting Irish I got my dates incorrect and put it down for Friday night! I hope your baby has a great football game tonight! I will cheer him on from down here! XO
