First off, I have a GIVEAWAY WINNER to announce!  Thank you to all who helped celebrate the two year blogiversary of Lola’s Girl!  As you know, she was giving an awesome Polaroid camera and a winner has been picked.  If you are the owner of City Life To Ranching Wife blog, then CONGRATS!  Please email me your mailing address to sandyalamode(at)gmail(dot)com and we’ll get the camera sent right out to ya! Can’t wait to see the pictures you take with it!  🙂

This week I’ve had my mind on nothing but summer.  Did ya know it will be here in just a few days?  And even cooler, it will be the longest DAY of the year.  Oh how I heart daylight (crossing my fingers that next Tuesday is sunny)!  And it didn’t help that I finally renewed my interest for using Pinterest again.  Well to be honest, I signed up last August in order to do my Pin It Forward post but haven’t touched it since.  Not because I don’t like using it, but quite the opposite, I know that every time I go there I could be sucked away for hours… and that is just what happened this week haha.  It’s a place to be inspired and inspire others!  I like the fact that you can create categories or “boards” as they call it.  And here are a few of my favorites this week from my different boards, and they all pretty much scream summer to me!

{fashion} | {for the home} | {favorite places and spaces}

{food and drink} | {beauty and makeup} | {party and decorations}

Aren’t these all so fun? The shoes… amazing!  The kitchen… so colorful!  The over water bungalow… can I just be there right now?  The fruit kabobs… mmm tasty!  The waterfall braid… so elegant!  The bouquet… perfect summer palette!  🙂

OK, well I’m off to Michigan for my college roommate’s purple and green wedding this weekend!  So excited, especially for the cupcake dessert!  😉  Have a great weekend all!
