Five on Friday | Memorial Weekend

Linking up with the Five on Friday ladies today...

{One & Two}

Two dresses that I would love to be packing into my suitcase for Memorial Weekend, but won't be because I don't own them.  But I really like them and want them! 


I'm needing some good dips to make for the holiday weekend and this one looks right up my alley.  Anyone made it before??

White Pizza Dip via How Sweet Eats

White Pizza Dip
serves about 6-8
1 pint grape tomatoes, tomatoes cut in half
1 teaspoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 (12 ounces) blocks cream cheese, softened
8 ounces mozzarella cheese, freshly grated
8 ounces provolone cheese, freshly grated
1/4 cup finely grated parmesan cheese + more for garnish
4 garlic cloves, minced or pressed
1/4 cup freshly chopped basil leaves
2 tablespoons freshly chopped thyme leaves
1/2 tablespoon freshly chopped oregano leaves
crackers, bread or chips for serving
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil then place tomatoes on top. Sprinkle with olive oil and salt, then roast for 20-25 minutes, until bursting. Set aside.
While tomatoes are roasting, mix softened cream cheese with about 7 ounces each of provolone and mozzarella, then and parmesan. Stir in fresh herbs, garlic and roasted tomatoes, mixing well to combine. Transfer mixture to an oven-safe baking dish (mine was 6 x 4 round). Sprinkle with remaining provolone and mozzarella. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until top is golden and bubbly. Serve immediately with crackers, chip or toasted bread.


All of you MUST need to read this article from a fellow blog momma about Secondary Drowning.  This is the first I have ever heard of this and it was so important to read and be reminded how quickly an accident can happen.  With this weekend being Memorial Weekend and lots of families going to the beach and pool, it is so so important for us to be on these babies like glue.  I am so happy that she chose to share her story and educate other families.  


Speaking of the water, we are headed to Destin for the holiday weekend.  I am looking forward to spending time with family, relaxing and playing with Brody at the beach.  Hopefully he will like the sand a little better than last time...

Have an absolutely FABULOUS 3 day weekend and hopefully some of you snuck off today and made it a 4 day weekend!!
