Today I am linking up here to join the Five On Friday party! This event is perfect for me. I love a good list and I love random.
So I'm excited about an event that comes around every year in my hometown-the Catfish Festival. It is our county fair and I always have a blast seeing folks I haven't seen in a while (or since the last CFF ha!). Bet you didn't know this but my town is known as the "Catfish Capital of the World"-such a high honor ;-). The festival includes a fishing tournament (of course), terrapin race, live bands, road race, beauty pageants, golf scramble and more. You can find the schedule of events here. If you are local, get out and support our community. It's as redneck and country as it gets but that's what makes it fun. :)
I have been feeding Georgia Grace sweet potatoes a lot here lately because the orange foods seem to be her favorite. I will sing "Song of the South" to her while I am feeding her and she will just laugh and laugh! And only when I sing that song. She is southern through and through!
I have been on Pinterest for a long time but just recently started using it again. I love pinning ideas on my new board-Forever Home. We are in the VERY early planning stages and really we are just gathering ideas right now. But this new revamped Pinterest addiction is not helping me be patient!
We are trying to plan a trip to St. Louis to see this guy pitch for the St. Louis Cardinals!!! We went to high school with Keith and he was called up in May and we are dying to go see him play. It's just so surreal to know someone that is in the MLB! Our town is super small (like 3 traffic lights small) so to have someone born and raised here succeed like this is so inspiring! Our town is so proud of him. We are officially St. Louis Cardinal fans now.
Meet the newest additions to our kitchen! They are mason jar canisters-genius. And they are HUGE. Like 10 pound bag of sugar huge. I have been on the search for canisters for a while and nothing I found suited me until my Instagram friend Holly posted a picture of hers and I had to have them. I just love them. These are definitely pieces that will go with us to our forever home. I'm in hopes they will unleash my inner Martha Stewart-I'm sure Marcus is hoping for that too!
Happy weekend, y'all! We plan on taking advantage of the summer solstice by being outside as much as we can. I'm off today and I think the pool is calling our name!
