{weekend notes}


….and the last month of the year comes rolling in.  All nonchalant.  2018 is about to come to an end!  Which makes me sit back and think about the last 11 months that just happened in the blink of an eye.  Craving a slow down + reset.  I’ve got my fingers crossed January will deliver just that.  Looking forward to a trip to SF.  All the cozy layers!  Christmas movies.  Holiday gatherings.  Wrapping gifts.  Maybe a spontaneous trip to Tahoe?

Intentions for the Week:

  • Bring the Table in a Box alive….it’s happening and I’m beyond excited!
  • Mani night with my girl
  • Order Christmas Cards….can you believe I haven’t done it yet?
  • Plan caroling night at GG’s
  • Find Bay shoes for the winter formal
  • Plan 3 Holiday outfits so I don’t have to think about it later
  • Share my top recipes
  • Mug gift ideas

Last week’s Intentions: {weekend notes}

Highlights from the weekend……

Kicked off the weekend having dinner + drinks with some of my favorite chicks.  Celebrating Robin’s Birthday!  I swear we could sit around the table and chat all night long.


Bay had her besties over for a sleepover ♥


Decided on this years gift wrap.  Hardly bought any gifts yet though.

Cream with Black Santa Lettering // Cream with Black Large Polka Dot


The tree is still naked AF, but we did get the outdoor lights up and I LOVE them.

I used 3 of the same $2.38 garlands that I used in {bay’s christmas bedroom} and wrapped them in a $5 box of white lights from Walmart.  Keeping it clean + simple this year!!

9′ Non-Lit Branch Garland($2.38)


Made a trip into A Well Stocked Home to pick up these bells.  BIG shout out to Jamie for finding them and remembering I was on the hunt.  The best $16 I spent all weekend!  The bells are currently hanging out on Bay’s advent calendar for the time being.

Back in November 2015 {weekend notes} , Sarah + I decided to make these Tree Advent Calendars.  Thank god Alex was home and stepped in..ha.  It was more work than we had anticipated.


I’ll go ahead and take 1 of everything!  Ha!  If you’ve been searching for Paper white lillies…your search is over.  A Well Stocked Home has more than you’ll know what to do with.  Hint: I’m using these in tomorrow’s post {mug gifts}.

Pit stop for bubbles before the Dickens in the Valley Holiday Home Tour.  This is our 4th year going and it’s a fun tradition.  Bay was going to join and bailed last-minute.  #tween


My tank is on MAJOR sale…..

$16 with code: 11750 and it’s in stock in all sizes.  I went with a medium and it fits perfect!



We toured the homes and got crazy inspired.  Karen of Serendipity Boutique styled 3 of the 7 homes on the tour and absolutely killed it.  Well done Karen!!!


After the tour we decorated my parent’s dining room table + made a trip to Home Goods and styled her shelves.

I’m obsessed with how this $7 TJ’s garland + $2.50 bunch of eucalyptus turned out.  It doesn’t have to cost a fortune to make shit pretty!


Saturday evening we headed to Winters to check out their Tractor Parade.


Such a cute parade.  Stick in on your calendar for next year.  Especially if you have little ones.  Cory, Bay + I enjoyed it so I can only imagine how this would light up young kids!




Bay found Buckhorn loaded tri-tip fries.  I for sure stole some!


Then Paesano’s for dinner.  Oh My God.  I haven’t had carbonara in years.  I almost licked the plate…ha!


Sunday’s #ootd

I live for PJ’s and I live in them.  When I leave for the day, I set them on the foot of my bed so they’re ready for me when I get home.  Swear!  Bay does it too…ha!  What can I say, we’re pj’s girls over here.

My absolute favorite, most comfy, wear almost every night, own 2 pairs Pajamas are on sale!  $54…but just trust me on this one.  Everyone deserves a bomb pair of pajamas.  And the slippers Bay + I also live in, are currently marked down to $19!  Order a size up…they run a little small.

According to my stats, quit a few of you ordered the combo.  THANK YOU!  Means the world to see you guys actually buying shit I recommend.


Dreamy cotton pajama set in stripe // Suede shearling slippers

Bay baked…again.  We ate half the dough…again!  She’s perfected the chocolate chip cookie.  I’m gonna tell you all about it this week too.  It’s too damn good to keep to ourselves!


I took garland care to a whole new level…..

We’ll chat about it more later this week.


Attempted wreaths.  It’s harder than it looks.


I made a warm German potato salad.  First timer and I’d say I killed it.


We went with a German theme for Cory’s Sunday night dinner.  I fell in love with sauerkraut.  Never had it before.


That’s all I got today friends.  Hope all had a great weekend.  Come back tomorrow for mug gift ideas!
