Five on Friday: Summer Edition

Happy Friday, friends! We survived another week, and I'm just keeping my fingers crossed the rain will go away for the weekend. I'm so ready to blow up our new inflatable kiddie pool {keepin' it classy folks!} and kick back with a cold one and my boys and just relax. I am so excited for Summer and all that entails. Sharing my Five on Friday love with some Summer loving!

I am obsessed with this.
Totally filling this out with the boys this weekend.

I am all about some refreshing libations come summertime.
Love me some cucumber and mint in prosecco, so this sangria has me intrigued.

And speaking of cocktails I am totally digging these plastic bottles from Shop Sweet Lulu.
How perfect are these for a picnic or Movies in the Park?

Was drooling when I saw this on Natalie's Instagram so I whipped up a similar version when our family was in town.
Roasted four ears of corn in the oven at 425 for thirty minutes.
Shaved off the cob and mixed with arugula, sliced cherry tomatoes and goat cheese. 
Drizzled with olive oil and balsamic and topped with cracked pepper and sea salt.
I am officially addicted!

5. Anthro Summer Tank
This tank just might be my new uniform.
Snagged this bad boy in black and white when it was on sale a few weeks ago.
Way cuter in person and will totally be living in these with shorts, pants and jeans.
Just kicking myself I didn't snag more colors!

So what has you excited for Summer??


  1. There isn't one thing in this post that isn't so lovely! The teacher in me LOVES that summer to do...because it's what I would call a "Thinking Map" in the classroom! HA! :) And I always swoon over any sort of minty cocktail...yes, please! xx

    1. Loving your "Thinking Map!" I need to use that with my oldest! :) Here's hoping you enjoyed a minty cocktail recently!

  2. Cucumber mint sangria looks and sounds delicious. I used to get this cucumber mint mojito and it had a chili lime salt rub around the rim. So delicious! Have a great weekend!

    1. Loving the idea of adding a little spice to that cocktail! Yum yum!

  3. I am a list junkie and just pinned that summer to do list! It is so stinkin' cute I need to get started filling it out!

    1. Me too!!! :) Especially when it comes to fun lists like this one.
