High Five For Friday


Hello everyone! Welcome to the weekly High Five For Friday linkup hosted by Tif @ Bright On A Budget, Katie @ Cup of TeaBecky @ BYBMG   and myself. We're glad you're here!

Let's recap my favorite highlights from this week...

1) We took Raylan to watch Disney Cars 3. He was so excited! It was such a cute little movie. We also stopped to get Pizza at our favorite pizza place. It was a great family day.




2) My best friend had her baby this week and I can't wait to meet the little guy. I wish they lived closer so I could get to spend more time with them.

3) I have been trying hard to lose weight. I have even been exercising. I know it isn't much, but I'm proud to say that I have lost 4 pounds. At least it's a start. I'm excited!

4) We've had some cooler weather this week and it has felt like fall. Raylan and I have enjoyed being outdoors. We have had picnics and flew kites.

5) One of my other best friends and I took a little day trip and explored to a lake that we had never been to. We went to Carr Creek Lake State Park. It was such a beautiful little place. It had little waterfalls and even had it's own beach. I can't wait to take Raylan back. I know he will love the sand and water.



This week's featured blogger is Laura from Fantastically Four. Laura is a wife and a stay at home mom of two. She shares encouraging words and parenting tips on her blog. I love her most recent post titled Embracing the Messiness of Mom Life.  It's such a great read. Please stop by and say hello to Laura. You will love her blog. 


Thanks for stopping by! Don't forget to linkup below. Have a blessed weekend!

Summer Brights


When I think of Summer, I think of Bright Beautiful Colors. I love the beauty that Summer brings! I also love the fun and fashionable colors that can be worn during summertime. Patterns can also be fun and bright. My main goal for summer is to keep cool because I am hot natured, so when I'm putting an outfit together for the day; cool and comfort is my main goal. This Summer Brights outfit is my favorite for coolness, comfort and style.








I love the pattern mixing and bright colors from this Lilly Pulitzer Luxletic Tank. Anything Lilly puts me in the mood for the beach or summer fun. The mint from this tank is a perfect match with the shorts. All of these colors scream summer fun! Of course, I had to add in some bright accessories as well.  It's such a comfortable outfit that can be worn anywhere. It's great for date night, a day at the park or at the race track.  

What Summer Brights are your favorite this year?

To achieve this look:

Lilly Pulitzer Luxletic Tank//Gift
Shorts//Old Navy
Dexter Lilac Sandals//Thrifted
Bangle//The Navy Knot
Necklace//Thrifted

Homemade Snow Cone Syrup

My whole family loves Snow Cones. In fact, there is nothing better on a hot summer day than a nice cold snow cone to cool you down. We used to get several over the summer but that ran into money. We are saving money by making our own and now we get to enjoy delicious snow cones all summer long.

7 Bible Verses for when you're Overwhelmed


We have all been overwhelmed before and it is a terrible feeling. We may be overwhelmed from sickness, finances, school, marriage, jobs or anything. The truth is there will always be something that can overwhelm a person. Sometimes we feel like just giving up and throwing in the towel but God doesn't want us to do that. There is hope in Christ alone. He gives us his Holy Word to reassure us and calm our fears. Here are 7 Bible Verses to read when you're overwhelmed.

Summer Bucket List

While Fall is my favorite Season, Summer is my second favorite. I don't like the hot weather because I am hot natured, but I do love all of the fun activities that you can do during the Summer months. There is just so many more things that a person can do during Summertime that you can't do during other seasons. Now that Raylan is 3, he is old enough to participate in many fun activities and make wonderful memories. So, I have compiled a Bucket List of things that I would like for us to do with him this Summer.

No Bake Strawberry Pie



 I love Strawberry Pie, especially during the Summer. There is nothing better on a hot day, than a delicious piece of Pie. If you are looking for something easy and festive to make for your fourth of July celebration, this is the perfect recipe for you. It's a no bake treat that will save you from having to fire up the oven, but most of all it is delicious and is sure to be a crowd pleaser.

Renovation on a Budget: Reclaimed Floors


I was so tired of looking at our carpet and wanted a change. I had been wanting hardwood floors for a long time, but our funds wouldn't allow it. However, one day when Justin and I were out on a date we came across the perfect idea for our floors.
