Friday Favorites: Hello May!

Hello May!
I love May for so many reasons.
There are so many special people's birthdays, and it's the end of the school year!
As always, I'm linking up with ErikaNarci and Andrea
We're sharing our favorites from the week.
Grab their graphic and linkup with your favorites from the week, too.

Weekend Finds

On Monday I shared my Weekend Finds. 

They included these awesome shoes below.

Last weekend I went shopping with my mom for a swimsuit for her cruise coming up. 
I didn't plan on buying anything, but then I found some great deals. 
Click here to check out my finds. 

They didn't have my size in all of the shoes that I liked, so I ordered three more pairs this week. 
Yesterday I arrived home to a big Macy's box. 
Unfortunately, the top was ripped open, but fortunately everything was inside. 

You should head to Macy's
Promo code FRIEND for 30% off for the Friends and Family sale runs through Sunday!

Athleta Suits

On Wednesday I shared my roundup of Athleta swim bottoms.

I'd been looking for a little more coverage yet still functional suit bottoms.
I really liked most of the bottoms that I tried, but I narrowed it down to one.
If I love that one at the end of the season, maybe I will get more.
To see everything I tried click here.


There's something about turning the calendar that I love so much!

May is super busy.
I have meetings, meetings, meetings.
Then, there's end of the year school activities, doctors appointments, birthdays and weddings!

I think this month is going to fly by, but I love all of the excitement each new month brings.
At first it's the beginning of the month, and before you even know it, it's the end!

This month I'm working on savoring days and not wishing them away, but looking for the good in each one!


The nice weather in February really spoiled me.
I thought I was going to be able to plant my plants so soon, but then Ohio weather came back. 
Last week it was 70-80 a day or two. 
Then, it started raining and going back to in the 50's. 
The nights are supposed to drop back down in the 30's, so I haven't been able to plant any plants yet. 
The ones I grew from seed really are growing. 
My first impatient opened up yesterday. 
I love new blossoms!


Last weekend we hung out and had dinner with friends and their new baby girl. 
I love all of the new baby snuggles, but man I hate when she fusses. 
We planned to grill out, so I thought I'd bring a dessert. 
We have a local bakery in town that I don't typically go to, so I thought I'd treat us to some cupcakes. 

When I went it was buy 6, get 6 free. 

So we tried one of each!


This weekend we don't have many plans. 
There's some things I'd like to get accomplished around the house, and I need to read up and get ahead on our 40 Book Challenge at school. 
Only a couple more weeks until the students' charts are due. 
I can't stop now!

Have the best weekend!
I hope it's warm and sunny where you are!

  2. A BOGO on cupcakes!?! Awesome! I'm throwing my calorie count out the window today- our principals brought an entire room full of sweets for us to devour! Have a great weekend!
