5 for Friday

4:00 AM

So today’s 5 for Friday is going to have a little bit of picture overload from last weekend.

We obviously weren't ready, or at least I wasn't haha!

4th Recap

Ok, so here is a little recap from the 4th of July last weekend.  I know a lot of bloggers already did their recaps but I really had no time to write a full recap until now.  So above are a few pictures of my friends and some of the goodies that I made.  Also, us three ladies somehow fit on a quad and it was actually really comfortable!  Of course, lastly, that’s a picture of one of the fireworks that boyfriend set off.  Poor thing slid right under the mule too.  Regardless the firework show was awesome and I really love going to upstate NY.  It’s so relaxing and I don’t have a care in the world when I’m there.

Minion Movie

Most of you know that I’m OBSESSED with minions.  Well, the Minion movie is out!  I’m seeing it possibly today, maybe sometime this weekend.  I’m so super excited y’all have NO IDEA!  For those of you who have seen it don’t spoil it for me haha!

Little Man’s Birthday

Next week is my little fluff ball’s birthday.  A few months ago I celebrated Lilly’s birthday (here), and on Tuesday it will be Kuba’s 10th birthday.  Time really flies.  I bought him a mini piñata that will have dog treats inside instead of candy.  Adorable balloon birthday candles, an elephant toy, and I will be making him an apple peanut butter cake that is dog approved.  I can’t wait!

Advertising Sale

The last day for the advertising sale is tomorrow so make sure if you want to have a side banner or a guest post to contact me by tomorrow!  You can check out all the details in last week’s post here.

Countdown to Poland: 22 Days

You guys I only have 22 more days until I’m in the motherland.  I remember when I first started my countdown and it was in the 80’s.  Now we are less than a month away!  I can’t wait because rumor has it I might be taking a quick trip to Sweden as well for a few days, but that’s still up in the air.  Even if I don’t go to Sweden this vacation is jump up and down worthy!
