Ready for the Long Weekend

I love Memorial Day Weekend because it officially kicks off my absolute favorite season: SUMMER! Plus, who doesn't love the 3 day weekend?!

1.) We're having a BBQ/Pool Party/H's b-day at the house. Looking forward to grilling, day drinking, and dunking people in the pool. I doubt I'll be topping last year's celebrations *actually I know I won't considering I haven't been in planning mode for months like last year* but I know it'll be a good time.

2.) Making my favorite blue drink for the weekend you know... to be festive...

~ Malibu rum
~ Vanilla vodka
~ Blue Curacao
~ Club Soda
~ Light margarita mix

3.) Stocking up on chino shorts at the J Crew Factory Sale. 50% off grab em' while they're still there!

4.) Loving this beautiful orchid my mom left with us before flying back to CT. Hopefully my green thumb shines through and I don't kill it :-P

5.) I've been eyeing this patio bar set at Target *where else* and think it may finally be time to just get it already. Perfect for pool parties and bbq's at the house.

Linking up today with April for 5 on Friday and Lauren for High Five on Friday. Hop on over and join us! Happy Friday!

**Announcement: The Recipe Swap Tuesday link-up will not be live this coming week due to the holiday weekend, but will resume again on Tuesday, June 3rd**
