Happy Friday friends!

I have a quick Friday Favorites today because I have friends in town and we’re getting ready to enjoy the fabulous weather ๐Ÿ™‚

My Tomatoes

After losing my first four tomatoes that were ready for picking to some hungry chipmunks, I got smart and put netting over the plant so I could save the rest of the tomatoes that are growing. It worked and now I have a few juicy tomatoes to enjoy.

New England Patriots

I may lose some of you here but I am a huge football fan. My family have been Patriots fans since the early 90s and it’s been amazing to grow up with an NFL team like the Pats. We drive out from New York for all of the home games every season. I took two of my cousins to their training camp at Gillette Stadium this past Tuesday and it was awesome! I haven’t been to their training camp since I was 9 years old. I’ve been meaning to get there in the past few years and I was finally able too. Watching them practice got me excited for the upcoming season!

New Harry Potter Book

Anyone else start the Harry Potter and the Cursed Child? It’s so different, in a good way, to read about Harry’s kids and the issues they are going through at Hogwarts. It’s also crazy to read about Hermione as the Minster of Magic and Harry and Ron working there. I don’t really mind the play format that the book is written in either. I take JK Rowling’s words any way I can get them. I didn’t realize how much I’ve missed these characters from a book standpoint.

The Olympics

I know this is a repeat from last week and everyone else has had this on their lists but I’m sad it’s coming to an end. I love rooting for Team USA in all different sports. I love the stories and the effort these athletes put into their olympic careers to reach their goals. I love the shots of families cheering, hugging and crying for their loved ones. It’s such a joy to watchย inย summer, if I’m home, I’ve been turning the TV on right at 8pm and tuning in to the events of the night. I hate waiting 4 years for the next one :-/

This Week’s Nails

Because I love to pick my nail color based on it’s name I had to go with this fun pink called “Kiss Me I’m Brazilian“. It’s my way of highlighting the fact I’ve been glued to my TV at night watching the Olympics haha. It is a fun and eye catching pink though that I would wear again ๐Ÿ™‚

Today I am linking up with Erika and Karli.

    I JUST posted a review of the new HP yesterday!! I said it was like the tiny dessert that comes with the bill at the end of a fancy meal – unexpected, not as good as a real dessert course, but I’m not just gonna leave it there on the table ๐Ÿ˜‰ Also – we totally have chipmunks in the garden, too. They may look cute but they pretty much ruined all our home grown produce, eeek!

      I’ll have to check out your post when I finish reading! I think I have combated the chipmunks with my netting over the tomato plants now, but ugh those pesky things! Thanks for stopping by ๐Ÿ™‚

    Love your nails! I’ve heard mixed reviews about the new JK Rowling book and I’ve debated whether or not it’s worth it. Maybe I’ll try it out!

    I miss having a garden SO much! The tomatoes look delicious! I’ve missed Harry Potter/ the characters so much, that I was so happy when the play script came out. I didn’t mind the format, but didn’t love the story. I actually have a whole post devoted to it being published tomorrow. It may actually be considered kind of a rant, lol! – Dorrie @ Rt 1 US 1
