Sounds of Summer

“The shining, warm sun… Check!

“Boots and Dukes… Check!

“Windows down, music blasting… Check!


This summer I have had my country playlist on REPEAT! I can’t help it, there is too many good songs out that  put me in the best mood to kick up my boots, relax with friends, and fully enjoy SUMMERTIME.


Here are a few of my MUST haves on the playlist this summer:

Who I am with you by Chris Young 

This is the hopeless romantic in me. My personal pick for date night!

This is How we Roll by Florida Georgia Line by Luke Bryan

Because these three country artists have had my heart since day one!

Home Sweet Home remade by Justin Moore

The country version of one of my 80’s rock favorites, Mötley Crue! 80’s Rock + Country = Pure Genius!

Beachin’ by Jake Owen

What’s summer without a little beach love. The first song played for all my summer road trips!

Somethin’ Bad duet with Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert

My favorite women of country and their new tune is FAB!

DIY : HoneyFund

How to Get Some Easy Honeymoon Help

how to 1
This easy craft is perfect for all brides and the perfect money dance replacement!
Ok it’s the time of the reception when the DJ announces the ever so awkward and uncomfortable money dance. As a bride you get the chance to dance with every single guest from your dorky uncle to your bridesmaid’s random date in hopes of getting a dollar or two to put towards your honeymoon.

Well, with this cute and easy DIY craft, you can tell the DJ to skip the money dance and continue to shake it on the dance floor- and hey you might even make it rain at the same time!

First, you get a top loading shadow box! It is crucial that it is a top loading box. You can find them at Michaels! how to 2

Once you have your frame the rest is super easy! Just pick a picture for the back drop and choose a color sharpie (silver or gold looks best) and write “honeymoon fund” or “tips for travel” right on the glass of the frame to complete the craft!

What is there not love about an adorable how to project that will do the exact opposite of breaking the bank?!
Goodbye money dance and hello honeymoon!
