Five on Friday

One of our friend's was visiting last week so we went with everyone's favorite for dinner - make your own soft tacos, but not before a leisurely cocktail hour on the deck with the best Mexican dips.  We heated the tortillas and the chicken on the grill and it worked great.


Fresh blooms are ever present on our countertop - Wegman's floral section is hard to pass up.


This romper is a new favorite - comfortable and blue/white.


Yesterday I shared about our new lower deck area and I've been loving rocking in the new chairs and enjoying the cooler air but also letting Stella play on her own outside a bit.


And lastly, here's what I'm loving this week...




Have a great weekend.  Cheers! xx
