12 Happies du Jour


Happy Tuesday!  I love that this is a holiday week, any extra time I get with my family makes me very happy!!!  Can we start with amazing shot of Mary Kay Andrews fireplace all decked out for the 4th!  I love how she has added bunting to her mantle and her overuse of flags makes me very, very happy. 

I have a few things I added to my wish list this week, and each of them are so fabulous.  These slides, yes please!  I love these sunnies and this bag with the incredible tortoise strap is incredible. Oh and can we please discuss these gold bow sandals ... I love them!  Oh, and Shop Bop is fabulous for quick shipping when you pair it with your Amazon prime account.


Do you need a few last minute ideas for tomorrow's celebration?  I love this article for some great ideas ... we always buy a red velvet cake from a fabulous bakery near us and I will most definitely be adding some sprinkles to the top with some sparklers for some extra happy!


When I was perusing House Beautiful I spotted this amazing painted deck.  I love how classic it looks while looking so fresh and new.  Well done, don't you think?

I love corn hole and have been wanting to add a set to our backyard for a while.  I was hoping to get our oldest to make me a set in the architect shop he works in and then I spotted this set.  I love that you can easily transport it for vacations and for family outings.  I bought it immediately and since they arrive today I see a fabulous game or three of corn hole on the agenda for the 4th!

I have said it before and I will say it many times, this is my favorite coffee.  Not only is the flavor perfect but the price ($39 for 100 pods) can't be beat!

Speaking of coffee, my sweet friend Ashley got this mug for her birthday and she has been raving about it. ever since. I do like my coffee hot so I love the idea of having it at a constant temperature while I enjoy it. You control the temperature of the mug with an app on your phone so you can decide exactly how you like it, can you believe it? I love the reviews this mug is getting, I have added it to my wish list for our anniversary in August. 


My new favorite sip is this yummy drink above.  Start with a great grapefruit juice (or squeeze your own) and add in Elderflower liqueur + gin + a slice of fresh grapefruit juice and a sprig of fresh mint.  It is so good!  I read recently that all drinks should be shaken with ice before serving as it enhances the flavors.  I will be shaking my drinks from now on!

I see so many people reading this book and I have added it to my reading list along with a few others.  I really am excited to read the new books by Emily Giffin, Mary Kay Andrews and Elin Hilderbrand. 

I have been trying out some new Beauty Counter products these last two weeks and I can't wait to share with you all the new things I love.  I think I am actually becoming a product junkie, but since my skin, hair and face have never felt better I am totally good with it! 👍

There are so many sales this week ... and there are a few I have to share with you.  Lisi Lerch is having a sale, its the perfect time to stock up on amazing earrings and their newly acquired bag line.  My friend Leslie is having a sale on her darling bags.  Make sure you get a variety of bows, you will want them!  20% off is a fabulous time to get a bag, or two, and some amazing bows! Both Grandinroad and Frontgate are having great sales so if you are wanting to add some items to your outdoor space this is the time!


Can we please have a moment to take in the photo above?  I spotted this mattress in a magazine in Lance's car when he came for a few days last week.  First of all I die over the gingham mattress, and while I know it is super extra (using my new teenage word) I can not get over how fabulous it looks.  I have been told they are amazing and so comfortable so that is a plus, plus.  I will just sit and stare at the photo trying to take it all in.  I mean, a gingham mattress that is incredible?  YES PLEASE!!

Have the best day!
