Five Loves on Friday

Happy Friday, friends! Excited to share five things that made my heart skip a beat!

(1.)  Saturday afternoon we celebrated a family friend's upcoming wedding with a Bridal Shower.
Celebration + Girl time = Lovely Afternoon!

1.  The gift I made the Bride-to-be (TUTORIAL COMING SOON!)  2.   My niece, Princess, & Little One striking a pose in mirror above the ice cream sundae bar  3.   My mom enjoying her perfectly layered frozen goodness  4.  Gorgeous celebratory sugar  5.  Cute cousins  6.  My lit'l sis & I.


Do you have a Sonic Drive-In in your area?  If so, you'll wanna hit it up after 8pm! They've started their 1/2 price shakes after 8 Summer promotion.  Although it feels nothing like Summer here, at the moment! However, the day we enjoyed this chilly treat it had been hot, sunny, without a cloud in the sky...

Then suddenly, we went from sunshine, shakes, and open sunroofs, to SNOW yesterday morning...

I double checked my calendar, and yep, it actually was MAY 2nd.  Which just happens to be my sweet sister's Birthday! (LOVE YA, SIS!)

I don't think snow was on her bday wish list! She was dreaming of a shopping spree though, and extra chilly temps do make shopping more fun! ...Maybe I just feel that way because I normally do my best shopping on Black Friday, checking everyone's Christmas gifts off my list as I run from store to store in the freezing cold at 4am. . . . Hoping it'll feel more like "Christmas in JULY" soon. I'd like to exchange hot cocoa for iced mocha frappes pronto! 

ALSO, after being spotted on I'm an Organizing Junkie's Menu Plan Monday last week, I was tickled pink to read Laura's take on the recipe as she featured it in a Recipe Highlight this week! ... IF you haven't yet pinned my Saucilicious Slow Cooker Pork Chops, you SHOULD!  The meal takes only minutes to throw together and is complete with two sides!  

(4.)  I took the leap and MOVED from blogspot to .COM!

If you follow me via Bloglovin it'd be oh so kind of you to click on this snazzy little button 
Follow on Bloglovin

You know what would make the 
house blog warming gift?...

(5.)  ..."LIKING" Chatting Over Chocolate on my brand spankin' new FACEBOOK PAGE!
