Celebrating: Weekend Review

Hello everyone! So glad y'all got a laugh out of the post from yesterday. It's probably one of my favorite posts ever! It's definitely going under the 'best of BeB!' But what was going on with blogger comments yesterday? It said I had only 10 when there were actually like 35! What's the deal, blogger?

Anyway, I just couldn't wait to share the 90s extravaganza with you so I'm doing a weekend recap today! 

I went over to my parents' house this weekend to spend the holiday. We went to some family friends' house on Saturday and had a cookout and pool time. On Sunday my mom and I went back to their house after church for some more sunning :) Then Sunday night I saw Eclipse! Coolest.fight.scene.EVER! If you haven't seen it and you're a Twilight fan like me, run don't walk! 

Now that I've gotten my blood pressure pumping from the Twilight talk, here are some photos from the weekend....


Mama and dad with their favorite (and only) grand dog, Millie monster!

Millie and me before heading to the July 4th cookout.

Getting tan by the pool.

Toes in the water, felt so good in 90+ degrees.

I love shadow photos....

Wanna know where I got my shades? Claire's. Yes. The little girls' accessory store :)

If you missed the link on a previous post, here is my favorite swimwear brand!


There you have it! It was such a great weekend! Some of the best food I've had in a while!

Oh, before I forget, look what I won from Miss Megan at The Discerning Fashionista! A Coach wristlet from the brand new 'poppy collection!' So excited!!! Thank you, Megan!


So what's on tap for this week around here? Well, more blog crushes, a little tag from Pink Champagne, possibly the debut of a new blog award, and the giveaway to celebrate 500 followers!

Y'all rock my world!

You and your family are so gosh darn cute! And you have such a great hair cut - it looks so perfectly done, even in that 90something heat!

Glad you had a great Fourth!

I love all the pictures! You are so stylish by the pool...I can't even put on makeup or do my hair because I get so hot! But you look amazing!!

I hope you are having a good week!

Congrats on the wristlet...super cute!

I had the same problems with comments yesterday.
I haven't seen Eclipse yet and I AM a fan but none of my friends want to see it because they think they're too mature for Twilight... come on, Edward's an old guy, right? He's technically much older than me...

meredith said...

Hey Julie,

I am going to oder one of these bathing suits...yours is so cute:) There is an orange one I want but I am wondering how true to size they run. In clothes I wear a two but in bathing suits...I am usually a 6 (big chested). How do you find their sizing to be? Hope you are having a great weekend.
