Friday Favorites...Summertime

It has been a busy week, what with all the end-of-school-year festivities, ceremonies and shenanigans I had to attend. And then Devin's baseball practices started up while Dracen's season was finishing up so it was baseball overload there for a few days. 

The fact that I don't have to get up at that ridiculous dark thirty hour for over three.whole.months thrills me more than it probably should. I swear I think I get more excited about that than the kids do. But somehow I  forgot to turn my weekday alarm off last night when I went to bed and was all kinds of confused and disoriented when that thing went off at its normal just-before-the-butt-crack-of-dawn hour this morning but the satisfaction I got from laughing in that iPhone's face when I turned it off and rolled back over was just about worth it. (I have issues. Clearly.)

I'm still sitting here in my pajamas in the sunroom (after 10:00 a.m.) sipping coffee out of my Wonder Woman mug with the gorilla-glued handle and feeling no shame in my game whatsoever about it.

Devin had two friends over last night who all promptly disappeared into the bonus room and aside from the time they came down scavenging for food before we went to bed last night, I haven't heard hide nor hair from any of them and Dracen is still hard at sleep as well. I think I see a summer chore list in their near future but today I'm giving them a free first-day-of-summer-vacation pass...

Fun in the Sun
I've always loved this summer pic of Dracen taken at 
the beach in 2007. He still does that curling of the lip thing.

Fancy Firepit
I've been wanting to build a firepit in the
backyard for awhile now and hope to bring that plan
to fruition this summer. I am practically drooling over this one...

I have no idea where this is, but I'd love to
spend about a week in that hammock doing nothing
but reading and napping. 

I'm seriously crushing on these.

How cute is this?
Perfect for Memorial Day or the 4th.

Great advice
This cracked me up.

Swimming Hole
This just made me smile.

Love this for summer.

  My little friend
I don't know what is up with the chipmunks this year
but they are everywhere around here.
This one was kind enough to pose for me the other morning.


Happy Memorial Day Weekend!

  1. I can't believe that his school is almost out! We have one more to go.
    I hate when you wake up like that! EEks. And there is no shame wearing pj's and drinking out of a wonder woman mug. I think that's pretty awesome

  2. I havent seen a Chipmunk in ages and this morning I saw one as I pulled up at work.
    They must come with the rain.

    A few 6 ft long hotdog/marshmallow skewers and and that fire pit would be complete.

  3. Don't skimp on your dream fire pit, I beg you. I have gotten one that wasn't exactly what I wanted 3 times and sadly just wasn't happy with any of them. I'm holding out now for a stone one. :) And that trifle is fabulous!

  4. We have graduation in the morning, party in the afternoon, and leave for beach in the evening!
    Yeah buddy!

    Happy, happy, happy:). And, a little tired!

  5. Wouldn't a firepit like that be insane? Love, love, love! What a perfect start to summer for the boys with the sleepover!

  6. Oh, I love love love that firepit! I want to start building a brick platform for mine and then keep adding and maybe one day I'll have one like that. lol
    Love the doggies jumping in the water! And your chipmunk pic is beautiful.

  7. A fried is making Patriotic Trifle for a cookout today. Wonder if it's the same one.

    I don't say mean things on fb, but I am guilty of venting on my blog.

  8. Just checking on ya... hope you had a fantastic memorial day. We spent outs in Hershey Park... gawd love ya for bringing home the monster candy bar for your boys. I saw that baby in the gift store... no way that was going home with us as carry on luggage. :)
