Friday Five




One. Cool Drinks. Y'all the heat is not joke in NC this week. I am thankful that Joe and I both have jobs indoors and can keep cool. I stumped upon these cute watermelon ice cubes on Pinterest which are perfect for keeping cool.
Two. Favorite Flowers. Love, love fresh peonies. One goal for our new house is to build a flower garden filled with peonies and hydrangeas. BHG has a great tutorial on how to grow peonies.
Three. Peach Season. This is my favorite time of the year for many reasons. One being the variety of fruit that you can find at the farmers market. Peaches, watermelon, strawberries and blueberries! I shared on snapchat () my delicious Peach Milkshake from Chick-fil-a. It is by far my favorite flavor they make. Holy yum! Love the idea that you can make one at home using this copycat recipe


Four. Beat the Heat. Notice a trend here? This article is filled with simple tips using things you already have on hand to keep cool. It's a must read. 



Five. Weekend Plans. Headed home this weekend for Fathers Day and to enjoy my hometown's biggest event of the year the North Carolina Blueberry Festival. Our small town brings out all the stops by selling tons of food and blueberries in just about everything (think blueberry lemonade and blueberry wine). Of course you can purchase flats of fresh blueberries that were grown right now the road! My favorite is the live country bands and beach music being played on the street. 


What are your plans this weekend?
Does your hometown have a unique festival?

  7. Our plans are very low key- just hanging around the house. I also dream of one day having a flower garden full of lush peonies. I'll have to take a look at that article. Thanks for sharing!

  8. I read the first words of #3 "peach season" and I just about leapt off the couch to run and get a milkshake from Chick-Fil-A. Those things are delicious, and healthy right? I mean they have fruit in them ;)

    This weekend our Fresh Market is having a huge sale on Peaches and I can't wait!

  9. I would LOVE for a garden full of peonies. They are by far the most beautiful flower : ) My hometown has a dogwood festival, but my family has a vacation house in Nantucket and they have the Daffodil festival every April and it is absolutely over the top, so much fun to go to. Hope you have a fabulous weekend!!

  11. A blueberry festival?! We may have to check this out! My dad just gave us blueberry plants and has a few too. Love the watermelon ice cube idea - we eat frozen watermelon nightly here! It's the perfect treat. I am loving hydrangeas - and haven't attempted peonies. I was so excited this year because I started a new hydrangea plant off a shoot from an orginal my grandmother gave us when we first moved in ten years ago!

  16. Peonies are my favorite flower too! I even named my blog after them! I love peaches as well... At my parents house where my dad is peach obsessed he planted several peach trees that ripen at different times all Summer... Which means extra peaches for me, I'll have to try the recipe. Linkin through five on Friday
