{friday 5}

Happy Friday, Friends!  It was a long busy week, but it felt so good to tackle the ol’ to-do list.  On a scale from starting to have an fing panic attack to gurrrllll, I got this…..where are you with your Christmas shopping?  Or is that just a loaded question 10 days away from Christmas?  Hope you get that shit done so you can enjoy the remainder of the Holiday season.

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

 

ONE – Wine // My most beloved chardonnay vessel of all time.  The glass you can find in my hand 90% of the time you’re in my home.  The other 10% is before 10am when I’m still holding my cherished coffee mug.  Both cups I love equally.  One just spends a little more time in-hand than the other.  Both from one of my favorite places to purchase beverage holders.  Anthropologie!  And guess what?  Anthropologie is having a sale.  It’s unheard of for Anthro to have 25% off ANYTHING + free shipping.  You’re welcome 🙂  You too can have this wine cup-glass-thingy in your hand 90% of the day.  $18 for a set of 4 glasses!

Unfortunately I will not be partaking in my normal weekend pastime, aka chardonnay drinking.  This cold finally got the best of me and I’m currently being medicated for a sinus infection.  Pray for me, K!

TWO – Cow Print //  I stumbled on this cow print last week.  I’m totally in love with it and currently trying to figure out a spot I can place it in my home.  You can also get it in color too.  Honestly, I think I prefer the black + white image better.  What do you think?

Oh yeah, and it’s a free printable.  Even better!!

Clink on the link below and print!

THREE – Twinning //  When you find matching tops at Target, you make your kiddo wear it the same day.  And you document that shit.  Thank god she’s still totally into matching me! It’s hard to see in the photos, but we were bumping arm ruffles in the picture.  Love that girl ♥

Both tops combined…under $20!

We both said, spontaneously – my shirt is so cozy.  And cute!

The first day of Fall!

And oh my gosh, THE WEATHER!  It feels like Fall and I’m loving it.  Who else is with me in welcoming this change of season?

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

ONE – Shady AF //  This one’s for you Lina!  I’ve been asked over and over by so many peeps to share my shade details.  I just got these a few weeks ago and I’m totally diggin them.  Matte black.  Polarized.  Great price tag.  I scored mine during the Shop Bop sale for $50.

And let’s take a sec to talk about Bay’s shades.  Until last month, I had NO idea Ray Bans came in Jr sizes.  Bay really really wanted a pair for her birthday.  She keeps them in the car and pops them on as soon as she buckles up.  It kills me.  She looks so teenager with them on.

TWO – Wi-Fi Printable // This was on my Intentions for the week.  Check!  I want peeps to feel at home when they walk though the door at our house.  And what feels more at home than your Wi-Fi connecting?  I just recently figured out how to change the name on our Wi-Fi.  Ha!  It was some weird combo of numbers and letters and I had a hard time figuring out which one was ours.  Picking a name was kind of a big deal.  Especially when you recruit the help of an 11-year-old.  Here’s what we came up with:

HeyBayBay1

HeyBayBay2

Since when do you need two?  They explained all the technical shit to me and it went right over my head.  But we have Wi-Fi, so it’s all good.

Anyway, I printed out this cute FREE printable and put our password on it for all our guests.

Come over and get cozy AF!  Use our Wi-Fi!

It’s not every day this mother daughter duo find a denim top they LOVE!  But when we do, you best believe we are going to tell you all about it.

You guys, she’s still totally into taking selfie with me.  I really gotta enjoy this while it lasts.  I know one day, sooner than later, she’s going to look at me like I’m crazy when I tell her “let’s take a selfie!”  That day is going to be devastating.  I’ll have to recruit Link, the rabbit, I guess?!?!

Bay is bringing the scrunchie back!

The highly contested 90’s hair accessory is again seeing the light of day.

Let’s be real, when Bella Hadid + Selena Gomez start posting instagram pics with their hair tied up in the throwback trend, you know it’s back!

Scrunchie

A 90’s hairpiece.  Formally worn by EVERYONE, and is now and embarrassment to society.

The girl wore a scrunchie to school, then got chased out by everyone, due to lake of stylish hairpiece.

Thank you so much Urban Dictionary for breaking it down, once again!  Ha!

 

I couldn’t have said it better.  I’m pretty sure I burned all my scrunchies.  Man, if only I would have kept them.  I’d have enough to keep Bay in supply for months!!

 

Take a look as some of these Pinterest images below!!!

Free People has so many cute options too.  Free People Scrunchies!

Can I get an Amen for Friday!!!  I don’t know about you, but I AM SPENT!  This first week of school, Bay’s 11th birthday + the eclipes (Ha) + packing has killed me a little  Just a little, but today is Friday!  We’re hitting the road for a final-final summer adventure.  And then it’s a wrap folks.

But first I’ve got 5 things on my mind…..

ONE – Back to school // This coloring page is everything.  Bay literally finished it in 2.5 minutes.  For the first time, since she started elementary school, she told me she was too old to do her back to school coloring page.  FML!  She did it anyway.  She must have seen the look on my face.  I almost cried.  Anyway, I have saved these year after year.

She said the worst thing in her lunch was a pickle.  I find that funny, considering she LOVES pickles…lol!  What a brat.

Click below and have your kiddo fill on of these out!  It’s a keeper

TWO – I Fought The Law // Total pre-ordered this book.  It caught my eye and I’m so intrigued.  Beautiful photographs of the strangest laws from each of the 50 states.

Strange, outdated laws from each of the 50 U.S. states—some overturned, some still on the books, and some merely the stuff of legends—are depicted with sly wit by Olivia Locher. Incisive, ironic, and gorgeous, these images will appeal to art buffs and trivia fans alike. A foreword from American poet Kenneth Goldsmith and an interview with the artist by Eric Shiner, former director of the Andy Warhol Museum, contextualize rising-star Locher’s photography. From serving wine in teacups in Kansas to licking a toad in Kentucky or perming a child’s hair in Nebraska, breaking the law has never looked so good.

For instance: In California, it is illegal to ride a bike in a swimming pool.

Oh, hello!  And Happy Friday!  It’s the weekend again.  You cant wipe the smile off this girls face today:)  Heading back to Tahoe for a girls weekend.  I foresee lots of laughing.  Empty wine bottles.  Front porch sitting.  Celebrity golf.  Dancing with Arty the Party!  Hey, maybe I’ll hit the Harrah’s jackpot too?  And hopefully, a couple of shades darker (thanks to Tahoe’s dreamy forecast).

Whatever you have planned, enjoy!!

 

Here’s what I’ve got on my mind today…….

ONE – Mezger Zinnias // “It seems to bring out the best in people” – quoted from the The Davis Enterprise.   I think we can all vouch that this beautiful zinnia farm has brought out the best.  How can you not smile when you pull up to the 2-acre field of colorful zinnias?  Or how about the people you deliver a vase full of these beauties too?  Bay and I spent about 20 minutes last night gathering zinnias for bouquets to deliver to Grammy (a welcome home) + GG (my 92-year-old Grandmother).   We made a big vase for our living room + even saved a few for our night stands.  There’s just something about fresh flowers in the house that make me happy.  Try it, stick a little vase on your nightstand.

BIG thank you to the Mezger family for another Zinnia year ♥

TWO – Sakura // Monday night we celebrated Alex (my ride or die homegirl) birthday!  If you follow along on Instagram Stories, then you saw it all.  Ha.  We had a good time.  As we always do.  I laughed till my stomach hurt.  Isn’t that the best?  When you wake up in the morning and still laugh out loud about the shit you talked about?  Anyway, we left happy + sake drenched.  The food was so good, once again.  Scroll down and take a peek at my tofu dinner.  I cleaned my plate…lol.  I woke up with the hangover of the century though.    Between the bottles of Bogle chard + the sake.  Thanks to our cook.  Or do they call them chefs?  I’m not really sure.  Anyway….he was fucking sake happy.  We all left (minus Melika + Robin) with sake all over our clothes, hair and faces.  “Who wants sake?” will forever be embedded!  ♥
