Hi friends! Happy Memorial Day weekend! Both boys have officially wrapped up school and we are excited to have a staycation here in the ATL this weekend. Honestly, I was feeling slightly guilty that I didn’t have something grand planned for the boys this weekend. But then at carpool Sweet P got in the car and said “I just want to feel empty”. I immediately knew our decision to stay put was right and that we could all use a little downtime. So let the “emptiness” begin! 🙂
Today I am starting a new series called Front Porch Coffee Talk. Just pretend we are two friends sitting on the front porch having some coffee and chit-chatting about whatever is on our mind. I certainly wish I could brew you up a cup of coffee and hear all about your crazy May and your summer plans!
As I mentioned, yesterday was the last day of school. I impressed myself when I remember to snap this picture! PSA: If you still have school left or forgot to snap a picture- do it! Get out your letter board or you can download this version that I use for free. It’s so fun to see how much they have grown over the year. Or in our case- how many teeth we have lost. (that would be 4!)
I whipped up these last minute teacher gifts this week- thanks to my friend over at This is Our Bliss. All of the items came from CVS. Done and done!
My current favorite white jeans are still on sale 40%! These are a super cute fit and love that double fray! White jeans are a staple around here in the summer and these are a fun twist on the classic.
While we are on the subject of my favorite things and sales, the infamous buffalo check rug is an extra 15% making it under $12. It sold out last year so if you have been on the fence- snag it sister!
Our friends hosted a dinner party last weekend and I thought she made the prettiest flower centerpiece perfect for an outdoor soiree!
I am currently about half way through The Southern Side of Paradise. Definitely a cute read and will make a great summer beach read. What are you reading? Would love any fun summer recs!
Last but not least, there are tons of great sales this weekend. Here are a few I have my eye on:
NORDSTROM: It’s their half yearly sale! Lots of good finds are 50% off.
TARGET: I already blabbered on about the rug, but these sandals are also 20% off and they are comfy. I also have had these in the rotation lots already!
J CREW FACTORY: Everything is 50% off!
What are you up to this week? Let me know!
