My Favorite Pinterest Pins of June 2013

So, did you have a good 4th of July?  I hope you did!  We had a really great day with friends that we don’t get to see very often.  Mr. 5 Year Old played games, swam in the lake, and went off some big water slides.  We had some really good food, played tennis, got to see some sweet little babies, and watched fireworks.  We both agree on our way home, yesterday was everything that a July 4th should be!  So, it was a great day!  Today, I bring you my favorite pinterest pins for June.  I have pinned the original source under the picture if at all possible.  Enjoy!

This entire outfit screams summer tome.  Love the outfit, love the hair!  Unfortunately, when I go to the original source for this, I can’t find the top!

Loving the Off The Shoulder Peasant Top

I just ordered this bathing suit.  It is my first venture into a high waisted, retro two piece.  Miss 17 Year Old told me I should!  LC probably isn’t going to like it much, but I think I will feel really comfy in it.

Beach Blanket Bingo Two Piece in White, #ModCloth- Just ordered this suit!

Love these wedges!

Love all the colors in this cozy little living room!  It looks lived in, and I wish it were mine!  I don’t think LC would love the colors though.

And this home office is just fabulous!

I made this sangria for a girl’s night I hosted recently, and it was a huge hit!  Delicious!

Miss 17 Year Old also made this guacamole recipe.  Everyone really liked it too!
