latest & greatest vol. 27

Friends! Friday! Finally!

Let me tell you what… I am oh so happy to see this day roll around. This week was a long one! Not necessarily bad, just looonnnggg. You know how those go, right?

To add on top of that, I had some major computer issues. (Hence no post from yesterday, I am so sorry about that!) Luckily, I was able to get everything squared away today. While the fun news is that I have a new, fast, shiny laptop to get back to work on, the sad news is that means retiring the original laptop I started Lonestar Southern on four years ago!

(I tend to get overly-sentimental with inanimate objects. It’s a problem. Moving on.)

Needless to say, I was looking for a few day-brighteners for today’s roundup of the cutest “new arrivals” to hit the web this past week. I found that and then some with this pom pom hat, the sweetest gingham dress and bright pink tassels!

In the vein of brightening things up, I have a song recommendation for you! Give Senza Pagare a listen when you can roll all the car windows down and blast it full-force. (I linked the video so you could hear it, but I’d ignore it and just listen!) Yes… it’s in Italian… but I’m obsessed. I think you will be too!

At noon, the family and I are packing up and hitting the road for our first lake house trip of the summer. One of the things I’m most looking forward to? Getting fast food on the drive over! That just feels so quintessentially “summer” to me, road trips and fast food. Will it be Whataburger, Chicken Express or Chick Fil A? Decisions, decisions!

Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend!

Love from Texas,

    Hey girl!! I totally empathize with your feelings of sentiment with little things. I always have to give a personal value to everything! Also, that blue dress is stunning. I am curious to listen to that Italian song, it sounds mighty sassy and I think I am ready for that!
    Have an amazing time on your trip!

    Much love,
