High Five Last Day of School Friday!

Today is the last day of third- and sixth-grades for my kids. I am so thrilled for summer but where does the time go???  

Here are a few of my start-of-summer favorites, otherwise known as the High Five Friday.

1. Donuts!

Dunkin' Donuts

Not only is today the last day of school, but it is also national donut day! I'm going to buy a few for my kids at Dunkin' Donuts and they are also giving away a free donut to anyone who buys a drink. The history of the holiday: it has been celebrated on the first Friday in June every year since 1938 to honor the men and women who served donuts to the soldiers during World War I.

2. Summer Uniform
I found a whole slew of cute summer dresses at Old Navy for as little as $15. Throw on any one of them with a pair of Soludos and you have my uniform from here on out.


3. Summer Concert

One of my favorite ever bands is touring this summer and will be in Michigan next week. I decided to buy tickets for everyone in my family to go see them after realizing most new music I listen to is from Radio Disney... The band is the Pixies and they're opening for Robert Plant (formerly of Led Zeppelin). There's even a Groupon!

4. Summer Travel

I wouldn't mind winning $7,500 for a family vacation and I love Sherwin Williams colorful take on it. Enter here.

5. Summer Decorating
House Beautiful
I just love this summery breakfast nook! Consider swapping out your regular dining chairs with some more comfy casual director's chairs like this pair. No rug under the table, lots of natural woven textures from the baskets, and styling the tabletop with fresh greens and citrus also help make the space feel more seasonal.

What are you looking forward to this summer?
