A little summer fun...

Summer is finally here and I have been enjoying the extra time.  I thought I would  pop in and give you a peek into my summer.

I am doing a feature on my blog EVERY FRIDAY this summer called "Friday Friends".  I have had so many opportunities to meet some wonderful women and educators through my blog journey and I wanted to take some time to let y'all meet them too! Truly, theses are a passionate and talented bunch of teachers and I'm so excited to share them with you.

One of my favorite things to do when the weather gets warm is stock up on fruits and vegetables from the local roadside stands.  Here in NC they are all over the place...mmmmm!

After my latest trip, I went on Pinterest in search of a recipe to spice up my cucumber and tomato salad.  I found this recipe and it is delectable (as my students would say)!

After my adventures in the kitchen, I went shopping and did some decorating.  My poor house gets seriously neglected during the school year.  I managed to squeeze it all in before the first day of summer so we'll say it was SPRING cleaning.
I lightened up the bathroom for summer with this fun yellow print. There is a matching rug which is bright and screams summer. 
I spiced up one of the girls bedrooms.  Nothing too crazy but she wanted some zebra print and you know how I love a theme!

I know that the radio is so old school but she loves it and wanted it so bad.  It connects to the IPOD so I guess it's not so outdated.

I also printed some life quotes for her bedroom to remind her of how wonderful she is.  

That's my summer so far.  I hope you are enjoying yours.  If you find yourself with a little free time, I would love for you to follow me!
