Five on Friday - Red, White, and Blue Edition

Happy happy Friday and happy three day weekend eve to most of you!  We are heading to Atlanta this weekend and my parents are staying at our house with the babies… I am so excited for some adult time and some good music in the great out-of-doors!

Memorial Day is this weekend so I’ll be busting out all things red, white, and blue.  I love it!  Here are some of my favorites...

O N E – Food

Last year for 4th of July we went to a cookout with my extended family and I was asked to bring a dessert.  These white chocolate strawberries were so easy to make and they were a hit at the party.  Everyone loved them!  The only thing I would do different next time is to double the amount… they were almost gone before the food even came out!  Perfect for Memorial Day and the 4th!

These red, white, and blue confetti waffles are the perfect way to kick off the long weekend.  Our kids would eat waffles every single day if we would let them, so I can never go wrong with those!




T W O – Festive Outfit for Me

I love red, white, and blue, and the older I get the more excited I get about wearing it!  This is my kind of summer style right here!



T H R E E – Festive Outfits for the Kiddos

I love dressing our entire family in coordinating outfits for the holiday because it’s always a good excuse to get a family picture… some of my favorite pictures have been from 4th of July these last two years since Olivia was born.


F O U R – Décor

Hobby Lobby is my go to store for all things holiday décor.  This will be the first year that I will decorate our house for the summer holidays, and I have already picked out some good stuff from Hobby Lobby.  You can check out their red, white, and blue selection here.  I also like to wait until they put the entire department on sale, because everything is 50% off!  Since it’s not on sale this week, I would assume that it will be next week since they seem to rotate sales every other week.



F I V E – Giveaway

This has nothing to do with red, white, and blue, but it is a good way to support business here in the good ol' US of A!  In case you missed it, I have a giveaway going on until 6/6.  If you want to get your hands on one of these beautiful watches, head on over and enter here!  I’m so smitten with mine and I haven't stopped wearing it!



And finally, just for fun, here is a picture of our little family all red, white, and blued up last year for July 4th... look how tiny my babies were!



Happy long weekend, everybody!  I hope you enjoy your time off with the people you love!
