How sweet was April of A. Liz Adventures to kindly host a link party!?!  It was as if she knew I was totally stressed this week and need a simple post.  One of the many reasons why I love the blog world -someone is always there to help-out even if they have no idea they are!!!
{1} Big Hats and Big Sunglasses

I came to terms with the fact that I would never tan years and years ago!  But last year I decided that I needed to use more than just sunscreen to protect my skin.  Big hat and big sunglasses will be my go to this summer at the pool and the Cape!!!

{2} English Muffins, Turkeyburgers and Old Bay

Turkey burgers on toasted english muffins is just the best dinner for summer if you ask me.  And to make it even better, Hubby sprinkled Old Bay on our burgers.  Awesome!

{3} Pen and Paper

I know that this makes me old fashioned but I still use a paper planner and I would never have it any other way.  If I take pencil to paper and write-out our week I remember more.  Maybe it is crazy "mom-brain"!  No matter what it works and I am going to order my next planner this week.

{4} Magazine Reads

I just adore Southern Living and Cooking Light but I have no any free time to really read them let alone figure out what new recipes I wanted to try.  I cannot tell you how happy I am that things have slowed down.  Now I might be able to read and try a new recipe or two!

{5} Give-A-Way

My first ever blogger give-a-way was so near and dear to my heart.  Last week I had a give-a-way for my friend and author, Mary Litton.  Beth S is the winner but I have not been able to get in touch with her due to Google+.  I really hope she sees! Anyone have any suggestions for getting in touch with a "non-reply?"

I hope y'all have a great Friday and a perfect weekend!!!


  1. You are so glam in your sunhat! And you are not the only "old school" calendar lover. I'm the exact same way! Ian keeps his calendar on his phone only and can't believe I prefer my stone-age ways. Thanks for linking up with us, friend!

  2. Love your hat and shades... very Jackie O!! Have a great weekend!

  3. You look so great in your big hat! I'm a big hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen girl too!

  4. I'm all about the big hat and the big sunglasses!! I got a sunburn the other day at 8 am wearing SPF 70. Really!? Need my huge hat with me at all times.

  5. Big hats and sunglasses all the way :)


  6. I love big hats for summer! They are worth it for sure and make you look so stylish! :) Mine has a monogram on it...being from GA and all!

    I also have never, ever thought about eating my turkey burger on an english muffin! PERFECT idea for next week's meal plan. THANKS!

  7. I am such a paper and pen planner person as well! I never go anywhere without my Erin Condren planner!! And, chilling out with my Southern Living is one of the best things ever! Found you through the link up!

  8. HEY!!!! I am finally sitting behind my desk! AT my computer! I came to visit you first! I LOVE the hat! AND I am a paper and pen planner girl too! Although the alarm on my phone has saved me several times!

  9. I have been using a pen and paper planner again for the last few years (my Erin Condren Life Planner) and I just love it. Never going back to using the cell phone calendar. And I love me a big hat at the beach / pool! Keeps me from getting a headache!

  10. I have the same hat. That turkey burger looks so yummy! I don't know how to get in touch with a 'no reply' person. But, she said she liked Mary Litton on FB....that means she has a FB account. Maybe this is her?

    1. Thanks Linda! I did "find" Beth on Friday afternoon and will be shipping out her books as soon as ML can sign them:)

  11. Girl, I love my paper planner! And that turkey burger dinner looks amazing... I will be picking up turkey burgers at the grocery store today!
