Ahhhhhhhhhh Memorial Day Weekend…the official kickoff to summer and don’t forget, the most important…to remember those that we have lost.
This holiday weekend means cookouts, pool time (please hold off rain, please hold off rain, please hold off rain), lake time, gathering with friends, family and some non friends and family (Boo), decorating our lost one’s graves, remembering those that served for our freedom at the cost of their lives, great food, great drinks (cheers), then lots of calories and bad hangovers (uggggg) and SALE SALE SALE’s everywhere!
***Note, be sure to conduct yourself as a lady around those non friends when you’re drinking and not cause any controversy….just say’n***
So, this holiday weekend snuck up on me since we’ve been traveling and I was frantically ordering stuff (swim suits, pool floats, party loot) and paying express shipping (Don’t tell Kip….Oh, Hi Honey if you’re reading this!)
If you remember my swimsuit hunt fail in Dallas? Well, my ole reliable Vickie Sec’s (Victoria Secret) saved the days…as always! I ordered this suit in a panic and thank the good LORD above, it fits perfect! PLUS, it was 40% off (Vic Sec’s is having a big sale on swimwear)
So these are few fun finds that I gathered for the holiday weekend, my staples for summer by the pool, as well as some good sales listed that you might find useful for building your summer wardrobe!
