Memorial Day Fun

Dress: Black Poppy, Flats: Target, Necklace: Forever 21

I hope everyone had a fun, celebratory weekend! Yesterday I had no plans for Memorial Day, but it ended up being one of the bests ones yet. I saw "The Lorax" in the morning with Derek and his family (which was adorable) and then went to his house and played with chalk with his little niece. Afterwards, Derek and I went back to my house and baked brownies, then went and played tennis and then once again, stopped at his house for his mom's homemade ice cream. It's hard to believe that I didn't play tennis for over a year. It felt so incredibly good to be out on the court once again, I want to try and make tennis a weekly thing now. We had dinner and snacks with my family and then just relaxed the rest of the evening. Sometimes the days that you have no plans, turn into the best days. And of course, I had to throw some red, white and blue into my outfit.
