Red, White & Blue - a few of my favorite things!

While I'm Waiting...Friday Favorites - Memorial Day edition
Today is my most FAVORITE day of the school year - it's the last day of school!!!  To say we're excited is just a bit of an understatement!  And since Monday is Memorial Day, it also means that the hubby gets a three day weekend.  A little something for everyone! ;)
I started thinking about Memorial Day a few days ago and then got hooked finding all things red, white and blue!  Today I'm sharing a few things that I'm loving!

First things first - outfit choices for Memorial Day!  Since my big closet reveal, I've determined one thing - I hardly have any summer outfits!  I guess when you purge 60% of your clothes, you're bound to realize you have some gaps in seasonal attire.  Here are a couple of things that caught my eye that I would love to add to my closet!
This red and white checked shirt definitely needs to get in my closet!  Last time I checked, it was only $12.99 and also comes in navy, black, and green!
Be still my heart!  I'm showing major restraint by not ordering this gingham dress...yet!  
These shorts come in two different shades of red and three different shades of blue (in addition to other colors).  Definitely need to add a few pair of these to my shorts selection!
Apparently off the shoulder is a must this summer.  This chambray top would be cute paired with the red shorts above for a little patriotic flare.
This halter top is perfect for those hot Texas summers.  I would pair it with the shorts below!
Here's a cute option if you want a little something more than a solid pair of shorts.  I'm loving this blue and ivory zig zag pattern!
As you can tell from my choices, my style could be defined as basic. :)  This tee definitely fits my style and I love that it's red AND blue!!!
Bags are my weakness and this royal blue crossbody had me seeing hearts!!!
And, if it doesn't stop raining soon, I might need to get a new pair of rain boots!

Pinterest also gave me a few ideas for crafts that the girls and I could work on.  Bonus that we can pull them out again for the 4th of July!

I'm terrible at cooking actual food but fun desserts are something that I'm always willing to try!  ;)  Here are a few patriotic treats that I know my family would love!

And, it wouldn't be a holiday round-up without a SCAVENGER HUNT!!!

We don't have any plans yet for Memorial Day but I know we are all just looking forward to being together and having fun.  Do you have any plans for the weekend?  Whatever it might be, I hope you have a weekend filled with all your FAVORITE things!  And, let's not forget the real reason for Memorial Day!

Gig 'em and God bless!
