Monthly Musings: Memorial Day Weekend Edition- May 2023





Hi Friends!  Patty and I are so glad you stopped by!  We hope you will join in on our fun.  We like to chat about different topics on the last Thursday of each month.  This month we are talking all things Memorial Day Weekend!  We are answering the questions below.  Please join us- grab our graphic and link back up with us below- c'mon it'll be fun!


 Here we go!



 1. How are you spending Memorial Day Weekend?

A lot of time will be spent on the softball field with our very fun team and families- really looking forward to this tournament!  In between, we are hosting a cookout for some friends and then going to a cookout on Monday.  

2. Favorite Ice Cream?

I guess anything that has something chocolate in it




3.  Memorial Day Travel or Hang Out At Home?

The last few years have been spent in and around town due to softball and dance and now that we have the pool we can just jump in anytime.  In years past, we made it a point to get to the beach at least one day.  I know we will do that again but we are in the "busy" years and I wouldn't trade it for the world!

4. Burger?  Hot Dog?  Both?

If I had to choose, a burger but I don't do either very often.  I prefer some chicken on the grill...I know very high maintenance ;)

5. Favorite Cookout Sides?

A fun or festive salad- Corn On The Cob- Watermelon

I feel like those are the cookout staples!

Example of one of my favorite summer salads to make HERE


6. White before or after Memorial Day?

When it comes to shoes I say after BUT when it comes to white jeans I say before.  Some friends were showing off their white jeans last week and they scream spring and summer to me and they were so appropriate on Nantucket!

7. Memorial Day Traditions?

We always went to the town parade.  Rob marched in the parade for 9 years when he was on the school board so the girls used to love to spot him.  I love that tradition and who knows we may still go but we are excited to have a cookout party to look forward to with Eva's friends and families


8. Share a Summer Recipe

 HERE are a few faves for Memorial Day Weekend



9. Parades?  Fireworks? or Cookouts?

ALL THREE- hope to see some fireworks but probably won't happen this weekend!



10. Show us your Red, White and Blue!


That was fun!  Hope you will join us!  Here are the topics and schedule for the rest of the year!

The peacock pool float makes me giggle! That peach caprese is a fun twist. I will need to try that out.

Have the Best Memorial Day weekend girl!

Love all the red, white and blue. I bet your pool comes in handy for use whenever you can squeeze the time in during this busy season of life. We'll spend Saturday at a track meet, so I know what you mean about plans changing through the years. Thanks for hosting this fun link up!

Holly, this was such a fun post to do. I hope you have a wonderful Memorial day weekend.

I prefer grilled chicken to either a burger or a hot dog as well (or even a grilled veggie burger) at least 95% of the time. Hope you have a wonderful weekend!
