Happy Friday! I hope you had a good week! We are so excited it is May! The countdown to summer break is on!  As usual, I am recapping the week with my Friday Favorites. Sharing a little bit of mom life and my latest favorite finds and products!

Family Fun in Rosemary Beach

It was hard getting back to reality after a fun spring break! We had a really fun trip at Rosemary Beach! It was one of longest road trips (14+ hours each way) but we survived!

I’m hoping to do a trip report soon, because it was such a fun area and I have a lot to share!

Rosemary Beach was an ADORABLE town!

We spent most of our time at the beach. We brought this beach game with us and it was perfect for the day the water felt too chilly! If you are looking for a fun Father’s Day gift, this set is a lot of fun!! It comes with a carrying case and a ball pump. Super easy to transport to the beach or to play in your backyard!

We also spent time at the pool or biking along the 30A. We even spotted dolphins, a sea turtle and sting rays!

The week went too fast and we were sad for it to end. But it was so nice to get away and enjoy some family time!

Yogi Bear’s Jellystone at Kozy Rest

Do you think about your next vacation as soon as you come home from you last one?

The best way to deal with post-vacation blues is to think about your next trip! Later this month, we will be headed to Yogi Bear’s Jellystone at Kozy Rest in PA! We have never been here but we are so excited because there is so much to do! Located just under two hours from Cleveland, Kozy Rest is an affordable vacation option to consider!

We will be staying in one of their pet friendly cabins! We missed our dog while him back home all week while we were in Florida, so we are happy we can take him on this vacation!

Another lodging option (not pet friendly) is a Yurt! How fun would it be to stay in a Yurt?!

Summer Target Decor Finds

I made a quick trip to Target the other day and I had a hard time getting past the dollar bins! The bins were filled with the cutest Hawaiian/Luau themed accessories and decor!

This mini wooden pineapple came home with me. I’ll show you where I put it in just a minute!

What I love about the Target dollar bins is that, the next time I’m back at Target, there will probably be a whole new theme! You never know what you will find.

So what did I do with the mini pineapple? Well, just like the book, If You Give a Dog a Donut….except it is If You Give a Mom a few minutes at Target….

I used the mini pineapple to make a new Coffee Station set up. Everything I already had on hand except for the pineapple and framed art.
