Friday Favorites

Yeah for Friday!!!  Woohoo!!  So happy to see the weekend AND to linkup with Erika, Andrea and Narci HERE to share some faves from my week.....

 More Swim for Miss Pidge

Softball Lessons for Miss Diana

Little Sissy patiently watching and waiting :)

 Straight Hair for Theater Head Shots!

 Fave MEMEs

 Aladdin at The Boston Opera House

Little Miss Diana got to experience a wonderful Broadway show right in Boston- we were grateful that one of her besties' moms took the kiddos in- this was a field trip that is part of her theater camp and she had a ball!

and these two cuties got cast in The Greatest Showman and will be singing the child's song- we can't wait to see them!

Here are the four shows they will be performing this year....

Golf or Coyote Hunting?

The joke and also the scariest thing right now in town is that there are coyotes every where!  EEK!  We have seen one in our yard at least once/ when the ladies took to the golf course on Wednesday night, we kept a lookout because I may just be the biggest wimp ever!!  Anyway we are working/prepping for the big Lobstah Trap tournament this Sunday and praying we don't get rained out!

Summer Must Haves at their PEAK


and blueberries...yes....even in beer...I LOVE New England!!

and a school board that does The Escape Room?  Priceless!

Hope you all have a beautiful weekend!

Tuesday Talk: Summer Sales Edition

It's Tuesday Talk time!  Linking up HERE

This is the fun linkup where we can talk about anything and everything we want to- woohoo!

I decided today that I was going to talk about SALES!
 There are plenty of them right now...have you noticed?


 If you are in the blogging world, then you know that every blogger out there and their sister is talking about the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.
Am I wrong?  If you are a card holder, then you have already had access to all of the goodies.

If you are not, like me, then Friday is the big day for you!

Is there anything you have been eyeing?

I will show you a few things I have been watching.....

Workout Leggings


 Puffer Vest


Today is.....

I actually went on last night...after the site crashed and came back up...I snagged a couple of kitchen essentials including one kinda luxury item...

An Air Fryer

I am excited to try chicken, fish and veggies in it....stay tuned!

I also snagged a meat thermometer and an electric hand mixer

I will probably go on once tonight too to see if there are any other deals for us!  I am really thinking we may need to get a Roomba...have you tried one?  Any thoughts?



After shopping over the years, I have learned that Wednesdays and Saturdays are the best days to shop at Macy's.  Often times, Wednesdays, are the days for their "One Day Sale"....I have also noticed that often times, the big Men's Sales happen on Saturdays.  I have been doing very well with tops at Macy's lately and I always wait for a Wednesday or Saturday to make my purchases....

Recent Tops

Are you shopping any of these sales?

Our Weekend at Laurel and Tom's Lake House

This past weekend was our annual weekend up at Laurel and Tom's Lake House in Laconia NH right on Lake Winnipesaukee!  It did not disappoint.  We all had a great time.  It was the perfect combo of relaxation AND craziness (when you put 6 kids together is there any other option?) ha ha!!!

Here is what it looked like....


The moms headed up ALONE...yep ALONE.  I took two vacation days so I could decompress for awhile (even though I still did work, it was a nice little break)  The Fab Four as we have dubbed ourselves enjoyed relaxing on the boat, listening to tunes  and chatting.  Pure Bliss! 

Beth Ann recreated our favorite salad from Fort Lauderdale....

That night we got dressed up and hit the town...well the next town over...Meredith...and more specifically The Lake Side Grill which is owned by the Common Man family.  It was wonderful....cocktails at the bar overlooking the lake first...

and then delicious dinners....

Such a fun night!


We had a leisurely start to our morning and had coffee out on the deck....and....started our research for February vacation.  I felt like I was on the stock/trading floor with Laurel and Cass...they are traders....and had us looking at the pros and cons of all of the resorts we could find in Punta Cana.  I had to snap a pic of them in action...

We then actually booked our resort!  All of the research paid off and we found such a great deal-  an all-inclusive resort and the kids get to stay free- FTW!  We had to wait until Sunday to book our flights, when Jet Blue released their new prices but we were on our way!

After this success, we hit the boat again and it was even a better day weather wise and "chill wise"

Then it was time to get ready for our hubbies and kiddos to arrive...our relaxing time was OVER ;)

It was worth it though..look at these faces (Eva and her idol Alana)

Laurel showing me my favorite- incredible blueberries...

Once everyone was settled, Tom grilled and we enjoyed dinner and catching up!  I was wiped!  Time on the lake knocks you out!


This was our full day on the lake...on the boat...with the kiddos...the water carpet and so much fun!!

We stopped at the cutest shop for ice cream....delish!

 and then enjoyed more boat time!

When we got back to the house, we did takeout and games and all kinds of craziness ensued......


We packed up to head home and get organized for our upcoming week.  After unpacking and organizing for the week, I enjoyed binge watching my new favorite show, "Outdaughtered" on TLC!

and we crashed...some more hard than others ;)

 Gotta love Lake Life....we sure do!  Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
