These Are a Few of My Favorite Things ~ Summer's Winding Down

Our summers here in Georgia start early which means our summers end early. Gone are the good old days of summer break being from Memorial Day to Labor Day. The schools let out in mid-May and the first week of August school is back in session. My day job is at my kids school so my summer is quickly coming to an end. Sad. I always have such big plans for the summer break, lists of things to accomplish, people to see, places to go, but many of those things don't get done in the short amount of time I have off. So much to do so little time. I really have a lot to get accomplished in these next two weeks! Yikes! But at least I get a summer break, right?

I've really enjoyed doing these "favorite things" posts the past few Friday's. It makes me look at the week a little differently ~ pulling out little things in each day that make me smile. Here are a few of my favorite things from my "summer is winding down week".

~ None Quite Like You necklace in turquoise. I have been searching for a necklace like this for a long time (really, a very long time, years). I wanted a necklace that was just turquoise, no gold, no silver, just layers and layers of turquoise beads and I found it at Red Dress Boutique. Red Dress is a shop here in Athens but they have a wonderful, well run website so if you don't live here you can still order from a wide selection of very current and on trend clothes, jewelry, shoes and accessories. I run (literally) by the boutique a few mornings a week and always stop to window shop. There are the cutest neon ballet flats in the window right now and they are at the top of my wish list! I'm looking forward to wearing my new turquoise necklace and I'm sure you'll see it in many future posts!

~ My kids and I made a late night run to our favorite frozen yogurt place, Menchie's, and this is their newest flavor. Maple Bacon Donut is not appealing to me, I don't eat bacon or donuts and the combo sounds kind of gross, but it gave us a good laugh. Different strokes for different folks, right?

~ I met a good friend for lunch this week at one of my favorite pasta places. It's nice to just step away from the busyness of the week and visit with a friend! I don't do it enough.

~ Remember my post earlier in the week about my obsession with polka dots? Well, the obsession continues! I found this blouse while out shopping with my youngest. It was on clearance plus an additional 20% off so I got it for about $15! I think it will work well with jeans, pants and skirts and I'm looking forward to styling it many different ways for play and work!

~ This little orange cup and what's in it is one of my favorite things ever, of all time. Jittery Joes is a local coffee shop and they make the best vanilla chi tea. It's like "Christmas in a cup". I TRY to limit myself to two (or three) a week, sometimes I'm not very successful! :) It's my comfort food, my happy food, my I'd-rather-have-this-than-anything-else food. And doesn't the bright orange cup make you smile?!

Well, that's it! A look at just a few of my favorite things from the past week. What were a few of YOUR favorite things? I hope you all have had a savvy and stylish week and have a fabulous weekend!
