I have totally been absent this week. We’ve had a lot going on and I just haven’t felt like posting. Do you ever have those days?

I’m so glad it’s the weekend! The Kid came home from church camp this afternoon and now we’re preparing for a pontoon adventure with our neighbors/best friends tomorrow! I hope I don’t get sunburned!

Here are my favorites from this week…

Favorite Fashion: My 20 year high school reunion is coming up next month and I’m searching for the perfect outfit!  I really like the idea of a faux leather top, like this one from Last Call (click the picture to go to the website)…
Leather Top
or maybe something a little more tailored…like this from Romeo & Juliet Couture (click picture for details)…
Leather Peplum
I think it would look really fashionable with some red pants, which would also be our school colors!  Go Lions!

Favorite Book: This one by Damien Echols…
Life After Death
If you’ve never heard of the West Memphis 3 or the Murders at Robin Hood Hills or the Paradise Lost documentaries, I highly encourage you to check any of those out or just go to wm3.org I’ve followed this case from the very beginning back in the mid-90s. I have started a blog post and rewritten it several times, but I’m hesitant to post it…the reason, I have lots of friends in law enforcement in Arkansas that remain convinced that Damien, Jason and Jesse killed the 3 little boys. I, however, have always maintained the opinion that they are innocent. I don’t know if my law enforcement friends read this blog (it’s doubtful), but I don’t necessarily want to start a ruckus. I’ll think about it some more and maybe post it next week. In the meantime… I want to read this one next…
Yours for Eternity
It’s sounds so fascinating!

Favorite Instagram: 4th of July is coming up next Friday and if this photo doesn’t get you in the mood to decorate, I don’t know what will!
If I knew my nails wouldn’t chip within 10 minutes, I’d get this done in a heartbeat! So cute!

Favorite Pin: Ok…so, a while back, The Hubs and I created these…
Fast forward to today and the pretty succulents are nearly dead.  I know I don’t have the best green thumb, but COME ON!!!  I pinned this site to Pinterest the other day and can’t wait to put some of the tips into practice…

Favorite Recipe:
This one I made on Monday night…On Tonight's Plate: Tetrazzini Casserole
I can rant and rave about this one for days! Next time, I’ll add some chicken and maybe some broccoli. There are so many ways you can make Tetrazzini Casserole! Click HERE to see my full recipe.

That’s it for this week! Hopefully I’ll be back in the blogging swing of things next week. But, until then…I’m linking up with these amazing girls. Click their buttons to check out their blogs!
