Friday Favorites-Memorial Day Weekend


Today kicks off one of my FAVORITE weekends of the year….MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND!
I love living in my town all year long but McKinney really shines this weekend.  We’ve got lots of fun plans and are READY for you, Friday!

I’m teaming up with Narci and Andrea to bring you FRIDAY FAVORITES!  Every Friday we host a link-up inviting you to join us!

Today, I have FIVE FAVORITES in honor of FRIDAY!

#1 Bachelorette Hannah
Okay, who is watching The Bachelorette??  I messed up and forgot to record the first episode but managed to catch up on Hulu.  And while I was a major skeptic when Alabama Hannah was announced as the new Bachelorette, I’m not hating it one bit.  I think she’s being real, 100% genuine, and truly herself.  I think it’s safe to say-I’m a FAN!  

If you’re watching, what guy are you rooting for?  After the first episode, I was TEAM LUKE but was that whole, “I’m STARTING to fall in love with you” stint a little too much? 

If you’re watching, what team are you on?!
And I need to give a shout out to my girl, Sheaffer!!  My oh my, how I’m missing those Bachelorette recaps on Wednesdays!

#2 Summer READY!
I’ve been doing everything to get myself POOL and SUMMER ready!  {And by that I mean buying the things we use at the pool-not eating only vegetables. :)}  I love a fun pair of earrings for days spent pool side but I do not like to spend a lot of money on anything I know will probably get wet and only last me a couple months.  My favorite solution?  The Bauble Bar section at Target!  I ordered several fun statement earrings {like this pair} and bracelets to get me ready for summer!  And you know my favorite sunglasses are these.

Don’t mind the crazy picture, but did you see my AMAZON post earlier this week?  It was a favorite among you guys.  If you missed it, check it out.  {My palm print pajamas are here!}

#4 Before We Were Yours
Okay, friends.  I’m giving you a little preview of my first Summer Reads 2019 book.  😉  I just finished Before We Were Yours this week and it was a definite FAVORITE!  I had a reader comment that she was having the hardest time getting into it.  I have to tell you-THAT WAS ME!  I actually started reading back in the winter, had a tough time getting into it, and stopped reading!  I cleaned my closet out this weekend and happened to find the book.  I’m gonna say 1/4 of the way in-I was hooked.   If this is you, KEEP READING!  This book is heartbreaking, touching, and inspirational.  Trust me when I say-there’s a reason it landed as a FAVORITE!

My crew and I have some FUN planned and we’ll be kicking off the festivities this evening.  Hope you and your people have the BEST weekend!

    I read "Before We Were Yours" for my neighborhood book club. Wasn't it good. Can't believe that place existed for so long before anybody did something about it.

    I was team Luke as well and then this past week made me cringe! I still feel like something may turn for him. Happy Memorial Day weekend!

    I didn't realize that you live in McKinney! We lived there for 12 years and loved every minute of it. Thanks for hosting the party and have a fabulous weekend.

    I read Before we were Yours for my book club and we had a great discussion. It’s hard to read what went on back then.

    Not a Luke fan from the start. I like Mike, Garret, and Tyler C. I’m warming up to Hannah but not a fan of the beast and her wanting them to be bold.

    I knew Luke was bad news when he was one of the guys who met her early. I’m a very good judge of character and I can tell you right now that he’s a bad egg.

    The dress in the last picture looks fantastic on you. Like you, I was skeptic of Hannah. But I'm really liking her now. Honestly, I don't have any guy favorite right now.
