Five on Friday - Summertime

Friday, July 24, 2015

I'm happy to be joining Amy from Love Made My Home for her Five on Friday Series.

I am taking five minutes of my day to share five things.


1)  I love getting mani/pedi's in the summertime and last week I decide to pick out the color white for my nails.  My daughter had this color on her nails and I loved the way it looked on her.  This is a very popular nail polish color to wear right now.  What I like about the color white is that it goes with everything and I think it looks nice for summer.



2)  This is the lovely view I had last week while I was walking my dog Bosco.  I love taking early morning walks with him when everything is so quiet.



3)  My family and I decided one evening to go to caffe' bene for coffee and cupcakes.  We picked out this red velvet cupcake which was just so yummy.



4)  I love the color of my peach rose that bloomed recently.


5)  I went on a trip with friends from my church to Cape May, New Jersey and part of the trip was a boat ride to see the whales and dolphins.  I was able to get this beautiful shot of the sun setting.  We did not see any whales but we saw a lot of dolphins jumping out of the water.


So that is my update on what has be happening lately.  Thanks for so much for stopping by and have a lovely weekend.



I will be sharing this with Amy from Love Made My Home for her Five on Friday link party that she is hosting.

  2. Julie, one of my favorite prints by Ray Ellis is Suppertime at Cape May! In fact it is hanging in my living room. My hubs gave it to me for my 40th birthday and it is the print I would grab if the house was on fire!!

  10. Oh such great things!!! I never would have thought of white nails though, I can see why you like them though. The best thing of all though has to be the dolphin spotting, how wonderful that must have been!!! Very exciting I am sure. Although, that cupcake must have been a very close second to the dolphins! Thank you so much as always for joining in. I hope that you have a great weekend! xx

  12. I like the look of your white nails so much, that tempted by a 30% off sale, I bought two white nail colours, a matte and a pearl! I'm off to mani-pedi now! Lovely pics Julie....Mimi xxx

  13. When I lived in NY mani/pedis were $23 on Monday-Wednesday or $30 other days. Here in Mass. there are no 'specials' and the average price is $45. Not only that, but I have to drive a LOT further and I'm always working with my hands so instead of getting a mani every week I'm lucky if it's once a month. Pedis? I save those for when I get to NY. Guess I just got spoiled.

    Enjoy the weekend Julie. Looks like we will have lovely weather.

  16. Such pretty hands you have. I've never had a white manicure - the closest I have had is silver. I just had them painted bright red, but maybe next time I'll give white a try! I love a good red velvet cupcake. Did yours have cream cheese icing?

  28. I've been loving white nail polish as well. It took a little getting used to but now I'm a fan! I have it on my toes right now but had it on both recently. I love Cape May but have never done the whale watch. I will have to one of these days. Your peach rose is beautiful and what a gorgeous morning walk you have!
