FRIDAY FAVORITES...HELLO MAY

Happy Friday and Cinco de Mayo!! Are you having tacos tonight? May, how did it become May so quickly? I LOVE May..Mother's Day, seeing my Blended Blog sister's this month, boys home for the summer, our wedding anniversary..so much goodness leading to the ultimate: Sweet SUMMERTIME!! 

1. These Guys
My two college boys are officially home for the summer. This was last Saturday when we brought home half the dorm for one of them

Mr. Nine is going to get the other half of this one's dorm room tomorrow.

And this smart is from one to 3 once again.
From Last Night's 3 hour awards banquet

2. Treats and Mexican
I don't eat a lot of ice cream and only really love it from our popular ice cream stand but what a yummy little snack on a hot day. Really good...or in my case, on cold day...not really "Hot" yet in our neck of the Indiana woods, lol

and in honor of Cinco de Mayo, My favorite "dip the chip in recipe": 
Chunky Black Bean Salsa
Recipe HERE
Maybe tonight should be a Mexican and Ice Cream kind of night!!
or Cupcakes...

Rachel from A Blonde's Moment made the most yummy looking  Churro Cupcakes this 
week.
Recipe HERE
  
3. Week's Attire
Nordstrom Top, Kendra Scott necklace

Ross Dress, Fashion Bella necklace, Anne Klein pumps

Loft top, Loft Pants, Charming Charlie necklace

4. LuLaRoe 
My amazing and beautiful friend Emily from Martinis and Bikinis got me my first pair of LuLaRoe leggings and I am in love! Like butter I tell ya. So soft and comfy. You know they are a hit, when you walk in the room and within 2 minutes your Mr. says "I really like your new work-out pants." I'm thinking more lounge around, run errands pants but I'll take it!!! lol. Thanks sweet Emily!! You know me girl!

5. Misc. Fun
My mom had the sweetest friend, her name is Chris and she has such a giving heart. A couple decades ago, I sort of matched them as friends through my friend who I worked with and was Chris's Hair stylist. She moved away but has since come back and she and my mama are partners in crime. She thought of me when she saw this and surprised me with it. How cute is this sweet Pineapple!! #HelloSummer

Have you ever been to a Blaze Pizza..it's a Make your Own pizza place assembly line like  chipotle....so good

Amen
#summergoals  
Wishing you a Festive and Beautiful weekend!!

  6. So exciting that your boys are home for summer! And thank you so much for sharing the churro cupcake post! Looking at them now, I wish I still had some leftover but my office ate them in two days -- and there are only 6 people in my office haha! I might have to make more so I can have one today. Have a great weekend, Andrea, and Happy Cinco de Mayo!

  7. So much excitement this month! I am glad the boys are home. I'm not sure I'll be able to take little dude going away to college. It's acceptable for me to move with him, right? Or perhaps the teenage years will make me ready to kick him out the door?! Have a great weekend, Andrea!

  10. Welcome home to you boys! Love those colorful leggings! I just bought a really "colorful" pair and was not sure if I like them or not. After seeing the different styles on your post, I think I will know better how to style a top with them. Thanks sweet girl!

  15. I wonder if LuLaRose is a US thing? I've never seen them in Canada but I've seen them a lot online. They look great and you wear the bold print like a champ!

  26. Happy Friday and happy Cinco de Mayo! Our plan is tacos tonight. We were going to go out but it's pouring here and most of the restaurants were planning for things outside. That must be such a good feeling to have your boys back home. You are all going to have such a great summer! Enjoy your weekend! xo Beautifully Candid

  27. Blaze sounds like such a fun concept for a pizza store, and that pineapple keychain you got is seriously so cute! I can't believe that it's May already too, but I'm looking forward to celebrating Cinco De Mayo today! I hope that you have a great weekend!

    We have a pizza place called Your Pie down here in the south and it's just like Chipotle where you build your own pizza, too. We LOVE it. We go there once every week or two. I can't get enough!

  34. All of your outfits are great. :) I haven't heard of Blaze Pizza, but it sounds like the Pieology place that we have here. Mexican food sounds great right now. I don't always want ice cream, but lately I have been on a kick for Magnum ice cream bars; they are decadent.

  35. Just wait until you try LuLaRoe dresses! They are even better :)

    ReplyDelete
  36. I got my first pair of LuLaRoe leggings as a Christmas gift. I'm actually wearing them right now. They are my favorite pj pants.

    ReplyDelete
  37. So many fun things today sweet Andreaa!!! You look way too cute in those leggings and that top! Love it!!! I've never really tempted by the whole LuLaRoe thing until seeing you in those😍. Have a wonderful weekend!!!

  38. Love love love those LLR leggings on you and so glad you like them! I told you how soft and amazing they feel. Too funny about Mr Nine's comment. I guess they can be used for working out but may be too delicate. Hope you're having a fabulous weekend!! xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  39. I haven't jumped on the LLR legging bandwagon yet, but I love the floral pairs. I bet you are so excited to have your sons home for the weekend. May is indeed a fun month and bring on the summer!

  40. We have a Blaze pizza location not far from where we live. It is REALLY good!!! I love those leggings too!! So cute. All of your boys (including your hubby) are all so good looking! Can someone please send over some warmer weather too? So that I can enjoy some ice cream too? Haha. I hope that you had a good Cinco de Mayo and that you are having a lovely weekend so far too! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  41. So glad all your boys are home for the summer! The pizza looks amazing...the closest one to us is on Michigan Road...easier to get to than the IUPUI campus location. Leggings are adorable...cute, cute, cute... Love the pineapple key chain! Enjoy your weekend...xoxo

  42. I am sooo dreading packing up Stephanie's apartment next weekend and I'm kinda bummed because it's Mother's Day weekend and Girlie does not get in a hurry about anything. (Insert eye roll) But anyway! I know you are SO excited to have those handsome men home for the summer!! And I'm so jelly about your "workout pants" and meeting blog friends later this month! Hope you are enjoying your weekend!

  47. I know you are so happy your boys are home! I remember having to move all of my stuff out of my dorm freshman year....it was not fun at all! And a student gifted me with a pair of LulaRoe leggings this past week and they are my first ones. I put them on (yes, so comfy) and Dustin reacted the same as your husband haha!

  48. Glad your boys are home after a successful school year! Mmm those churro cupcakes looks so good! Love your leggings! Love the inspiration for Lularoe leggis! I don't like their tops so I never buy the bottoms because I don't know how to wear them!

    ReplyDelete
  49. I know you are just beside yourself to have your boys home for summer! I have not had pizza in probably over a month and that looks so good....I am almost positive Blaze pizza was on the list of places we are getting soon here.
