Happy Monday!  Welcome to a peek at my June Calendar with ballet and a road trip!

I hope seeing my favorite ballerina at the top of the post makes you smile like it does me!

She performed a precious ballet to “I enjoy being a girl” from Flower Drum Song…one of my favorites.

It is hard to see the way she is smiling, but both front teeth are missing right now…pretty precious!

Yesterday’s wine tasting ended the month of May and my June Calendar quickly filled up!!

I know you will get tired of me saying how hot this summer already is, but it really is!!

I have already worn my Chico’s Perfect Summer Dress often.  That tells me that I need more dresses this year than normal, so I have two on the way.

Summer dresses for a Vibrant Autumn lady are a bit of a challenge, but I found two more I believe will work and will show them to you soon.

For now, in air conditioning, I am still able to wear a third piece like the Talbot’s Montauk Twill Jacket in Ivory, which I have also worn often this spring.

I like this jacket so much, that I am considering adding the bright papaya color to my wardrobe….but I need to hit a sale!

For the ballet recital, I paired the jacket with my super light Zenergy navy pants, and a super light navy sleeveless top from Loft

The Zenergy pants are so nice, no one would ever know they are really athleisure wear. Super comfy and do not wrinkle.

I am so glad that my color palette allows me navy and creamy off whites for my neutrals.

Last week, Mr. B and I loaded the car for a little Texas road trip….he attended a Songwriter’s conference in Kerrville and I headed to West Texas for a week with grandsons!

I like a road trip best when it is unplanned and we can discover new surprise things…though the territory is one we have covered often.

Mr. B likes to ask where the locals eat…that is how we discovered LUM’S Barbecue in Junction, Texas.

Great food, but they do need to add shade to their patio for those of us who eat outside with our dogs….the sun is brutal right now.

I also would like to commend the best gas station in Winters, Texas which does have a shaded patio and a Canine Corral for walking!  Perfect place for a stop.

I went along with my grandsons to get hair cuts for summer camp, and this small town Texas barber shop includes a pool table which they loved.

We came upon a vintage car show in Fredericksburg…I even enjoyed looking over some of the older cars.

I also discovered two small Goodwill locations…some day I am going to do a road trip focused on THRIFT.

Movie nights with my daughter and grandsons were cozy…in their area of the state the weather is much cooler than south where we live.

It was a great week and also on my SUMMER LIST from Magnolia Journal…so check off another one!

I am excited to have Connie, one of our regular readers from Oregon, join Leigh Ann and I with tackling the Summer Flourish list! 

There will be more to show you from the list later in the week.

Yesterday, I pictured Leigh Ann in red leather slide sandals.  I could not link to that particular one since it is older, but I found these on the market:

Love a red shoe of any type!

I hope you will join me tomorrow for the second edition of Budget Saving Tuesday!  Does anyone have summer fun planned for June?  Please share if you do…..and…..
