{Travel} Memorial Day Weekend-Music, Boating and Furniture

Memorial Day weekend this year was one of our better ones. The weather was perfect and we had lots of fun things on the agenda.
Our weekend started with a concert at a local casino on Friday night.
 This was my concert going outfit. Comfy!
It was our first time seeing a show there and we loved it.
We saw Sammy Hagar and  The Circle. He always puts on an amazing show!!  The man is 71 years old and can still sing his heart out!
On Saturday we weren't planning on it but went to check out some new furniture  for the deck.  We bought a dining set and I couldn't wait to get it home.
Here's a sneak peek. I immediately put our other set of deck furniture up for sale on Facebook Marketplace and had multiple buyers wanting it.
On Sunday we were invited to the shore to go on our cousin's new boat.
 It was such a relaxing day and so much fun to boat around the bay.
 I could get used to this!

Isn't this gorgeous? We even saw some dolphins!
We docked at a restaurant for lunch, now that's the L•I•F•E!
 I enjoyed a lovely frosé cocktail with my veggie tacos.
Our wonderful hosts! 
We stopped at the Ocean City boardwalk for dinner on our way home and went to my favorite place, The Bashful Banana. 
We had to get back to sell our furniture on Monday.  We grilled out and enjoyed the new deck furniture. I also lit my American Flag Jar Luminaries.  
They are still looking pretty good. How was your Memorial Day Weekend?  It feels like it was so long ago already!

{Photography} Prom Time

Prom season has come and gone around here but the (photo) memories will last forever.
 I can't pass up a boutonniére shot.
 I was lucky enough to take my niece's pre-prom photos.
 Gorgeous girl and location.
 I always have to get those flower shots!
 Who doesn't love a casual gazebo shot?
It was fun (and not as stressful) to take someone else's kid's prom photos.  Do you remember your prom?

{DIY} Tiny Table Makeover

This was such a quick and easy makeover! #spraypaintlove
The little side table started out like this.  I got it at Target about five years ago and its lived on our front porch ever since.   You can see it in the photo below from a previous post.
It no longer worked out there but I didn't want to get rid of it without at least trying to give it a makeover.  I used one can of Rustoleum Metallic Paint and Primer in Oil Rubbed Bronze.
 I love the result! 
 Now I'm using it out on the deck where it matches our new deck furniture (more on that in an upcoming post).   Don't you love my fluffy asparagus fern? (Thank you Cindy for  inspiring me to get one!) ❤️
 It's a great spot to hold a book and a drink too.
For reference I spray painted the top and bottom of the table top.
Just a reminder of what it used to look like...
..and now in its oil rubbed bronze glory!

June's Daily Goodie Box

First I need to announce the winner of my Maple Holistics Silk18 Shampoo giveaway. It goes to lucky commenter #4. Diva K.  Congratulations Diva and check your email for details!

Now on to this month's Daily Goodie Box!

{Disclaimer: I was given a Daily Goodie Box to review but all opinions are my own}
Let's see what's inside!

The Grandpa Soap Co - Apple Cider Vinegar Body Wash
This new cleanser with ACV (apple cider vinegar) to purify and cleanse your skin.  What can't ACV do?

Auromere - Ayurvedic Toothpaste
This is a gentle toothpaste that lasts longer because less product is needed to brush. It doesn't have any artificial sweeteners and it's vegan, cruelty free, non GMO, fluoride free and alcohol free.

7th Heaven - Black Seaweed Peel Off Mask
I love peel off masks, they are so satisfying to peel off!  This one contains sea salt, lava seaweed and sea buckthorn to detoxify your skin.

CURAD - Soothe & Cool Bandages
These new bandages cool on contact. They have a hydrogel pad to promote healing in an optimal way.
Treeline Coffee Roasters - The GEO
These are cute little pour over coffees on the go.  I think their design is so cool  (check it out below!).
Smart Pressed Juice - Vegan Vanilla Proteini
I can't wait to try this proteini (a blend of 10 organic superfoods--all plant based too!)

Prince & Spring - Fruitmojis
These are so adorable. You can feel better about giving them to your family because they don't have any artificial flavors, synthetic colors or  high fructose corn syrup.
Snack Less - Fruit Bars
This was the first thing I tried and it was yummy!  They are vegan, non GMO, low sodium, no sugar added and a good source of fiber.
You can sign up for a Daily Goodie Box here and no credit card is ever needed.

{Entertaining} Eagle Scout Ceremony

My nephew recently became an Eagle Scout and my sister threw an amazing party for his amazing achievement.
The ceremony and celebration were both held in a VFW Post.
I would say the theme was vintage Eagle/Boy Scout.
She decorated the tables with burlap runners, red lanterns, pinecones...
 ...and flower arrangements in these cute metal cans.  She added a Boy Scout quality to each arrangement.
 The buffet was decorated with more flowers and a pitcher of arrows.
 Bandanas served as napkins and we got to take them home too (of course I know she must have ironed each one!).
 The highlight of the food was this fun trail mix bar.
 It was a hit with the other Scouts for sure.
 The very proud parents and sister.
He's on to (more)  great things, I tell ya!

Today's the last day to enter my giveaway!
