Back In Time

Last night we made it to the second leg of our trip
Mackinac Island

This tiny and extremely charming island is chalk full of great restaurants, beaches, fudge shops, and grand hotels

Of course the one thing you wont find are cars.  So we will spend the next week exploring the island with all the other means of transportation

I feel like I have stepped back in time!!

Target Scores

Last week when I was in Michigan I ran to Target to pick up 1 thing my son needed for camp.  As usual I ended up with a cart full of things for myself.  When I am at home I try to stick to my budget, but when I am out of town all bets are off!!
These pants are so cute and so comfortable.  I paired these with a white tank, perfect for running errands and they were so comfy for my 7 hour car ride home.

Not only do I love the fact that by just buying this tank starving children in Africa will eat for a week, it is great with my workout capris pants that I wear when I do Bar Method.

These shorts look just like the JCrew critter shorts.

and I found this top to go with my shorts, I love how the different patterns compliment each other.

There is nothing better than slipping into a brand new pairs of pj's except maybe slipping into a really cute pair.

And finally, is anyone paying attention to the "activewear" section of Target??  Apparently they are taking some clues from Lululemon

I sure when I go back today I will find a cart load of other great finds!!

Girl Friday

Happy Friday and Happy 5th!!  I assume everyone had a great holiday...  We spent the day at the pool then headed downtown for the firework display.
I love seeing the arch lit up from the glow of the fireworks!!

This weekend is all about seeing friends and eating.  Tonight I have a friend taking me out for a belated birthday dinner.  

The restaurant has this insanely delicious tasting menu that is 9 courses all paired with wines...
I am not eating a thing today until dinner time!!

Saturday, I am starting off the day with a tennis tournament...

and the hubs and I are ending the day with dinner with friends...

Sunday our plan is the spend the day  at the pool...

Have a beautiful weekend!!

Home Sweet Home

I am back from Michigan but only for a week.
I have spent the last 2 weeks toddling all over Michigan and I loved every minute of it.

When we leave on a trip, we always start off with our obligatory shot of the arch, saying goodbye to the city...

then we headed up to my in-law's place in Michigan for 2 days
the sun typically sets between 9:30 and 10 pm around here!!

Then we were off again, I took my daughter to camp in Michigan...
she was at prime real estate on the lake.

Then I just zipped on down to South Bend to drop my son at golf camp for the week...

Then it was just me and Scarlett so off we went to my sister's house in Detroit...

After a week, it was time for the camp pick ups and then a few more days at my in-law's beach....

Then back home again!!

I cannot believe tomorrow is the 4th, that always marks summer as being half over for me.  My holiday will include unpacking, laundry, then repacking.  We are off again next Wednesday.
