Friday's Five

Happy Fourth of July weekend!  I'm looking forward to a mix of time between the lake and being home for this long weekend and especially the fact of not getting back into the real world until mid week next week.

Home, Again
We just got back late last night from our annual trip out west to California.  Like usual we tried somewhere new plus our old favorites - this time we tried a few days at Terranea Resort before finishing up in Beverly Hills.  It's crazy to believe our next trip out there we'll have the baby with us!

Last year in Newport Beach

Holiday Plans
I love Fourth of July - hoping for a dry and not super hot day.  Like usual I think we'll celebrate with a night or two at the lake then come back for the actual holiday - I'm thinking pool then our usual BBQ on the actual Fourth.

Fourth of July spread from 2016

Patriotic Picks
If you're still looking for something holiday appropriate, I shared these picks last week.

If you're a mama and missed my post on Wednesday, please take a peek back and share with me your favorites! Favorite Instagram/Etsy boutiques, favorite registry items, favorite maternity items and for boy mamas - favorite clothing brands.

Blog Post Wants
Anything you want to see around here?  Please let me know! It's been a little less usual posts and more house/baby but I try to throw in some this & that a lot or a weekend scenes each month.  Some of my usual posts might have gotten put in the back burner with what's consuming our life right now so if there's anything old or something new you'd like to see.. please share!

Have a happy and safe holiday weekend! xx
