Friday Highlights 6.5.15

Hello Friday!

Or should I say hello summer! Summer finally arrived with all of its warm sun shiney glory and we couldn't be more excited! This week we hit up the $1 Summer Movie Express to watch Annie, visited the library and went swimming.... all in one day. I just love summers with my girls and the season of life that we are in. 

{ONE}  On The Blog This Week

This week I recapped my May goals and set goals for the month of June.

Played catch up on our Sunday photo project.

Joined in with a new favorite monthly link-up featuring the man behind the blog

{THREE} National Donut Day

I gave you advance notice last Friday but just in case you missed it today is a very special food holiday.

How will you be celebrating?

{FOUR} Garden Progress
It has been about a month since I planted my garden and I thought it would be fun to share how things are going.

Sugar Babies and Cantaloupe
We added a long row of sunflowers on Mothers Day.


Jalapenos, Butternut Squash & Zucchini

Mild Jalapenos, Carrots, Romaine & Cucumbers


Tomatoes, Bell Peppers, Anaheim Peppers, Banana Peppers, Moracino Peppers

My 2015 Summer Garden!

Maybe in another month we will almost have some crops to harvest.

{FIVE} Girl Mom

This week I had Danielle from Sundaes & Spaghetti share her story about being a girl mom.

She wrote such a sweet post about her little girl Annabelle. Danielle is also expecting another bundle of pink in a few months too. I just grin ear to ear when I think of sisters.

Make sure you read Danielle's post to find out a few things that she wants her girls to know. 

If you're interested in sharing your story about being a girl mom fill out this survey and I will be in touch.

  1. So glad I'm reading this before Wyatt wakes up; we'll definitely have to make a run in our Jammies!

    And your garden looks amazing! Come do mine??

    Hope y'all have a great weekend!

  2. National Donut Day! How did I not know that? girls and I are without a car today. I may need to figure out if we have donuts within walking distance from our home.

    Your garden looks great!

  3. I was so hoping to get a free donut today... but most places require you to buy a drink as well. Boo! I love how your garden is looking. We just planted our garden a few weekends ago. I'm looking forward to tomatoes and fresh basil to use on our pizza! Plus thanks for the shot out, you are just too sweet! I had fun guest posting! :)

  4. Love the garden, lady! SO jealous! We live in an apartment and can't wait to have enough land to plant a garden!

    Love your garden!

  6. Your gardens look so great! I just sent Russ and the big boys off to get donuts. Yum!

  7. Thanks Becky!

    Wahoo! Such a fun day to celebrate. My girls were giddy this morning.

  8. Do you have a patio that gets any sun? Container gardening might work well if you have enough space! It's not quite the same but it can work really really well and is better than nothing!

    Have a great weekend!

  9. Yeah that does kind of stink. Unfortunately any place that does the free donut thing isn't a chain that Joplin has :(. Fresh tomatoes are simply the best, I can't wait. You are so welcome. Thanks for being a part of my series!

  10. I have been there before. I hope you find some place close by

    Thank you so much. Have a great weekend!

  11. YES!!!! That sounds absolutely perfect!

    Sure thing I'll be there in about 4 hours or so ;).

    You too!!!

    Movie, library, pool, all in one day? Best. Day. Ever!
    Oh my goodness, the week 16 photo of the girls is priceless. It should be in a frame, for sure.
    Please come be my gardener. I beg.
    National Donut Day has been celebrated in this house - 1/2 dozen to get the day started! #breakfastofchampions

  13. Your garden looks great! Luke & I are so bummed that we weren't able to have one this year due to our move!

  14. Wow, your garden is just growing right along!

  15. Your garden looks great!!! I love gardening :) Happy Friday!

  16. Your garden is looking awesome! I haven't even looked at our in 2 weeks, oops. :/ We have a summer movie series here too I need to check out...

  17. Isn't it crazy how much it can grow in a month?!?!

    Have a great weekend!

  18. I grin when I hear about two girls as well… Wonder why?
    Your garden looks amazing!!!

  19. Your garden looks great!! It's going to be a delicious summer at your house. I love the idea of a dollar movies! Hope they have some more fun ones for you this summer :)

  20. Your little girls' Sunday picture is so SWEET. Their faces look so similar, you can totally tell they are sisters. Adorable. Thanks for sharing!

  21. Yay for gardens! I'm just now harvesting our radishes and soon we will have spinach!!!

  22. Thank you so much! It really is a sort of therapy, I love it too!

    Hope you had a great weekend!

  23. Bahaha! Yeah mine is looking a bit neglected weed wise. I really need to take care of that soon! Definitely check it out. It is one of our summer highlights.

  24. :). I can always count on you to understand.

    Thank you!

  25. I can hardly wait for the harvest to start coming it!

    They have dollar movies for 9 weeks during the summer we will DEFINITELY be going back!

  26. Thank you! They do look so much alike and definitely could never deny each other. I love it :).

    Thanks for reading!

  27. Wahoo! What do you do with your radishes? Salad? I've never been a radish eater. Spinach, that I can definitely handle.

  28. I would love to grow some veggies but we have no room in our yard and what space we have, James is wanting to put in a fire pit.

  29. Great post! And I am in love with your garden. We have a huge garden here but we usually let my in-laws use it. I am wanting to dip into gardening to see what I can accomplish!

  30. Could you do some container gardening? It is amazing the things you can grow that way!

  31. That is so sweet of y'all. You should totally go for it. It is therapy for me and so very rewarding to harvest and eat from your yard.

  32. Looks like you and your girls had a fantastic week. I love your garden. I planted some Tomatoes and peppers too. I hope they do well. This is my first attempt at a garden lol. Thanks for linking up to H54F!

  33. Oh that is so exciting! I just love being able to harvest veggies I have grown! Good luck with your gardening adventures!

  34. You know I never really liked radishes before either. But there are so any different kinds just like apples. There are some I don't like but they are growing on me! They are so easy to grow and you can eat the leaves too (I have yet to try them). I mostly put them in salads or in veggie trays to dip in ranch or hummus!
