Well friends, we made it to the end of the week. I hope you all have a very safe and happy Memorial Day weekend. While you are enjoying the unofficial start to the summer I also hope you will all take a moment to remember those who sacrificed their lives to protect each and every one of us.

Here's one of my favorite Toby Keith videos for the occasion.

As we head into the holiday weekend, below is a round up of this week's Friday Favorites. Enjoy! See you all next week.

Check out these Memorial Day treats.

Patriotic Cherry  and Blueberry Pie from Pinterest:

Memorial Day Cupcakes from 3rd Generation Cake Lady blog

These pretzel sparklers from Le Top Blog

And this parfait from Better Homes and Gardens

 While we are on the topic of food, how fun are these ways to play with food?

Veggie Boats from Oh Happy Day blog

And these Mason Jar Salads from the Daily Muse

As someone who is geographically challenged, this wallpaper from apartment therapy would be perfect for me.

For those of you who work in an office, enjoy The Office: According to Stock Photos from the Daily Muse, including the following photo which conveys that "it's not that we're all extremely uncomfortable with one another and feel the need to appear important by making pretend phone calls to the office the instant the meeting was over - we really are that important.
 And for all of us whose worlds revolve around the Internet, this graphic on what to do when the Internet is down also from the Daily Muse.

From Cheetah is the New Black blog, check out these picks for a day at the beach

The perfect quote

And finally a funny video that will make you laugh as we head into the weekend. Enjoy!

  1. I have heard about these mason jar salads and I think I'm going to try it. Thanks for posting instructions!

    1. Any updates on the mason jar salads? Can't wait to hear from you whether they are a good idea or not. If nothing else, at least they are cute. Hope you had a great weekend!

  2. Haha, that diagram about the internet going out made me laugh! I go nuts if it happens when I'm at work. Have a great weekend, Jess!

    1. That diagram must be bad lucky because our internet at work has been cutting in and out for the last two days. Wonder what would happen if I posted something about finding a million dollars :-) Hope your week is off to a great start Sharon!
