{weekend notes}

Hi friends! Hope you had a great weekend. The weather was so good yesterday, I didn’t want Sunday to end. Then Monday had to happen. Woke up sick, I think? Lost my voice over the weekend. Was kinda thinking allergies, but today I’m just beat. So, I’m going to dedicate the week to wellness and self care. Hopefully I can get myself on the mend. Because, God knows, I don’t have time to get sick.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Take care of myself (I don’t have time to get sick)
  • Make a Spring Self Care list
  • Celebrate Cory’s Birthday
  • Share past Easter posts
  • Help Bay work on her Spring Show buyer letter
  • Take outfit photos for the blog
  • Write a post on Easter basket ideas
  • Plan out our day in the City
  • Drink a shit-ton of water
  • Hit my health goals for the week

This week on the blog: Spring Self Care. Share a new #ootd. Lots of Easter goodies.

Highlights from the weekend…..

You’re never going to guess what Cory + I did Friday evening…

Symposium in Davis is legit. Cory took me for the first time a few years ago and I fell in love with this little hidden gem. Amazing Greek food. And that pizza right there was divine! Bill Clinton and Arnold Schwarzenegger have dined at this place…..just a tid bit I thought you should know…lol.

{friday 5}

Friiiii-dayyyyy! I can’t even wipe the smile off my face today. Just happy AF it’s the weekend. Got up early, early this morning and cleaned the house from top to bottom. Even decorated for Spring a little too. I LOVE walking in Friday evening to a clean house. Makes starting the weekend extra sweet! You guys, we have hardly any plans….AGAIN! I’m sleeping in tomorrow, that’s #1 on my list. I’d love to work on the patio, if Mother Nature cooperates. Hope you have a good one!

{target finds}

There is no truer statement. Ha! What’s better than strolling the aisles of Target with a Starbucks in hand….all alone? Not much. Welllll, maybe a big ass glass of chardonnay. Bogle chardonnay to be exact.

I may be having chardonnay withdraws peeps. Embarrassing to admit, but I’ve actually had a dream about wine. I was pouring it and the sound made me smile so fucking hard it hurt. Think I even woke up smiling.

Since wine is off limits till April 18th, let’s chat about ALL THE THINGS Target. The next best thing!

Target is rolling out Spring. Spring clothing. Decor. Seasonal items. It kills me every time I walk in those double sliding doors. I have to repeat, I’m ONLY her for toilet paper and La Croix. Ha! It never works though…..

Okay so here are some items I’ve purchased. Some I have on my wish list. And some that I’ve got my eye one at the moment.

{friday 5}

Hello Friday! And Welcome March! Question…..

What’s your coffee order?

I’m a grande pike (black) in a venti cup. Sounds kinda boring, huh? It truly is what I ALWAYS order and enjoy. But, I want to try something fun. Something new to look forward to on Friday coffee dates. Not too sweet though. Any recommendations?

Hope you have a great weekend. We don’t have many plans, and I’d like to keep it that way. Craving a low-key weekend. Extra cups of coffee in my Pj’s kinda weekend, ya feel me?

It’s Friday and I’ve got 5 things on my mind……

ONE – March //

Little things I’m looking forward to this month…..

  • Daylight Savings
  • Starting a new project
  • Spring cleaning + Organizing
  • Sunshine
  • Making something new
  • Making time to rest
  • Making healthy choices
  • Hiking a new trail

Happy Tuesday peeps! Sorry for the multiple posts today. Yesterday’s {weekend notes} was all set and ready to publish and somehow about half of the post was gone. Deleted. Nowhere to be found. And I chose to drink wine instead of work on it more last night. Priorities…..You know how it goes.

So today you get a BOGO. Except you didn’t have to buy shit to get the second one free. lol.

I was flipping trough a Taste of Home magazine last week and stumbled on these adorable marble meringue hearts. I’m such a sucker for cheesy Holiday tchotchkes + treats. And since I had all 4 ingredients for the meringues and there was no school yesterday, I recruited Bay the Baker to whip some up. I have one on each place setting.

{shopping is my cardio}

Floral Top ($20)// Coffee Mug ($3)// Bracelet ($9)// Bracelet 

Shopping is my cardio.  Target 🎯 shopping, that is. It’s been a little quiet over here. Just needed some off time…literally. But I did hit up Target once or twice.

Okay fine, three times in the last week 🤷🏼‍♀️

My motto: When all else fails, just got to Target.  Buy a cute top. Get a new mug. It solves all the problems 😂

so let’s chat about all the new finds I scored at the one, the only, Target!!

IMG_9089.jpg

 

Let’s start with cute tops, because you know I’m a sucker for a cute $20 top!  I have to admit this was the ONE section that was a little disappointing.  I’m gonna give Target a pass this time though.  They are transitioning to Spring….and I cannot frickin wait.  I vowed today to not buy another long sleeve top!  Sooooo…Target best get that shit out STAT!  Ha!

ps…All the underlined + bold words are “clickable” links.  They will direct you to the actual item on Target.  I’m saving you all the searching time 🙂

{DIY $12 eucalyptus wreath}

img_0084

Annnnndd it’s FRIDAY!

Can I get a hell yeah?!?!  Hell Yeah!

Did you catch what Bay baked in my Instagram stories this morning?  She was asked to bring dessert to the Truitt’s house tonight and she straight up killed it.  It’s a little more formal than the occasion, but I love her creativity.

I’ve gotten lots of messages asking me to share more details.  And don’t trip chocolate chip….you know I will!

You guys, the SUN is trying so hard to come out today.  Which makes it kinda feel like beer drinking weather.  You know what I mean?  That spring weather that makes you wanna ditch work and get hammer-timed.

After all the rain lately, I think we’re all craving some vitamin D!

Anyway, switching things up today.  I just wasn’t feelin the normal {friday 5} thing.

Yes, it’s another DIY that involves eucalyptus.  You know my love for eucalyptus is REAL!  This aromatic greenery is typically referred to as a “filler” Which to me kinda means, the extra stuff.  Cheap.  Not the real thing.

img_0077

But, let’s keep it real….I would choose eucalyptus over any flower.  Wellll, maybe till Spring.  Then I may add tulips.  Only white ones though.  Ha.

You’ll find some kind of eucalyptus variety around my house year round.  And once it dries, it’s even better.

This simple DIY took me about 20 minutes.  Closer to 15ish…then an extra 5 to perfect it.

You really only need 3 things.  Unless you’re like me.  Then you’ll need all 4!

img_0125

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • grapevine wreath (I used an 18″) Joann’s // Michael’s // Amazon
  • fresh silver dollar eucalyptus ($2.99/ bunch at Trader Joe’s.  I used 3 bunches)
  • scissors
  • glass of wine
