FRIDAY FAVORITES....FLORAL FUN EDITION

This month is going so fast and two boys are already down at college. After Tuesday, we will be empty-nesters, for the college year anyway, and I don’t quite know how to feel about it. Definitely keeping busy is on the agenda and not quite sure yet how are going to fill our Friday nights without football under the lights? Lol. Tomorrow will be a baby shower for my cousin and hopefully Sunday will be a pool day. What are you up to this weekend?

1. CHICAGO WITH MR. NINE
You know we love to get to Chicago when we can and after hearing it was going to be a nice weekend there, Mr. Nine just knew we had to get away after all they have been going on at home. Plus, I think he kind of wanted to cheer me up. It was one of those no agenda weekends and it was perfect. We did lots of walking, eating, and drinking and visiting rooftop bars! Sunday was full of people watching on the Riverwalk and more good food including Stan’s Donuts! I actually ate two entire donuts on the way home as I had not had anything sweet to eat in two weeks and they were absolutely delicious!


Love staying at the Trump Hotel..the view and customer service are Ahhmazing 


A Favorite Restaurant is Nico Osteria. The Brussels Sprouts Bruschetta is one of my favorite dishes ever. Mr.Nine got the BEST Corn Beef Hash.


2. MEMORY JAR
Before Daisy passed, I cut some locks of her hair and wanted something special to put them in. How precious is this little Memory Jar. The boys think I should put it on the Christmas tree this year. The owner of the Etsy shop was so sweet and was even able to put her middle name on the tag as well.

4. FLORAL PANTS, TANK & FEDORA
You know I love to wear dresses but when I find pants that are as cute as this and fit this well, I’m sold! They are a dream to wear. I got these cuties at Kohl’s and it looks so cute with the tank top and fedora. This was what I wore all day on Saturday in Chicago and it was super comfortable and fun!

  12. Every time I see you post about Chicago, it makes me want to visit there again. Your memory jar for sweet Daisy Mae is just precious. (My moms middle name is Mae spelled that way too💜) I think you are going to love your empty nest!!! It takes a few days to adjust, and then you're like, "hmmm, this isn't so bad." LOL Happy weekend sweet friend!!!

  16. Your trip to Chicago sounds like a lot of fun and the perfect getaway. I love the idea of putting the memory jar on your Christmas tree! I have two ornaments on my tree the represent Gracie, and I cherish them so much every year when I go to hang them. I still have her stocking too, and while I don’t hang it anymore, I can’t bare to part with it either.

  20. I would love to stay in one of Trump's Hotels. I'm glad you had a great time. Love the memory jar idea. When my sister in law passed away, one of the nurses made some of family members one with a lock of her hair and her cancer ribbon attached. Her 3 boys later added some of her ashes to theirs.

  27. I too can't believe that college starts in one week for my daughter. I know you will miss your boys. I am so sorry for your loss of Daisy and I love the idea of a memory jar! I love your pretty outfits and so glad you had a fun time away with your husband. Take care and hugs.

  28. Thank you for the shout out, Friend! I wish our little soiree next Sunday wasn't so "simple," or I might splurge on the earrings! I am so glad that you and Mr. Nine had a wonderful trip to Chicago. I think Alise's basketball wardrobe we are about to hafta order has put a dent in the upcoming plans we had to have a quick weekend get away! ugh! I am so disappointed. Never the less, it's FRIDAY!! Hope you have a fabulous weekend! Have fun at your shower, too!
