Happy Friday + Happy St. Patrick’s Day!  I hope you’ve got your green on today!  And you’re getting festive tonight… beer and all!  Do you ever go into Friday just knowing it’s going to be an outstanding weekend?  That’s me today!  I’m so ready to say peace out to Dixon, CA for the weekend!

You know what comes next!  I’ve got 5 things on my mind this beautiful Friday……

ONE – The leprechaun made a stop at our house this morning.  Bay told me I can stop pretending that an actual leprechaun comes to our house.  That she knows its me that does this every year.  Dagger to the heart!  My response: As long as you’re living under my roof, the leprechaun will pay a visit every single St. Patrick’s Day….PROMISE!  She laughed and told me it’s OK, she totally loves it ♥  Green milk with a sprinkle rim + Nugget’s croissant donuts (OMG, I made her give me a bite….so good) with a side of multi vitamins + the traditional green treat basket.   So Lucky You’re Mine!!!


TWO – Olive + Black for St. Patrick’s Day //  I realized last week that I basically have NO green clothes….at all!  Clearly I had to make a trip to J.Crew to fix the situation.  I don’t want people touching me, let alone pinching me today…ha!  Since I can’t be traditional AF, I’m going with olive + black for my St. Patty’s Day look!

How killer is this scalloped tank?  Not going to lie, I’ve already worn it twice already.  It’s gorgeous under a blazer or tucked into a pair of denim.  It’s currently on sale for $38 too!  And comes in 3 other color options (fiery sunset + marine salt + barcelona blue) creative names J.Crew, I like it!  I need a couple more of these in my life, that’s for sure!

** Nikki – I finally got my links fixed, just for you!!! 



I swear this jacket doesn’t look so nun-ish in person.  It’s really cute.  Awful picture J.Crew.  I actually wouldn’t have even looked at this twice, but I saw it in store and had to have it.  It’s lightweight and just what I needed for my closet.



I rarely shop in-store, because who’s got time for that shit?  But, this rare occasion made me re-think my in-store shopping phobia.  I got the really ditzy checker.  Don’t you love it when that happens?  I complimented her on her sweater, and she gave me every promo under the sun.  I grabbed both of these items for $50.  I may be shopping in-store more often!

THREE – Student Led Conference //  This year the Plainfield’s 5th graders did student led conferences.  At first I though, weird!  Then I sat down in Bailey’s classroom chair Monday afternoon and she led me through her conference.  I was blown away.  My 5th grader has written essay’s (good ones) + is acing math + makes power point presentations, which I personally have never done before.  I’m so proud of her progress this year and love both of her teachers to pieces!!!  Just had to brag a little #proudmommoment

FOUR – Cheesy Potatoes //  AKA potatoes deluxe, funeral potatoes, hash brown casserole.  Whatever you call them, I think we’ve all got a version that we whip up for an easy side dish.  I posted these on my snapchat + Instagram stories this week and was asked to share.  So here ya go….

  • 2 lbs. frozen hash browns (let thaw for about 30 minutes)
  • 8 oz. sour cream
  • 8 oz. sharp cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 cup red onion, diced
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 stick butter, melted
  • salt + pepper

Mix together and place in a 9×13 pan.  Sprinkle more cheese over the top if you’d like!  Bake for 1 hour at 375 degrees.

There you have it…the easiest, cheesiest, most delicious potatoes ever!
