Do you know what happens when I go to bed at 8 pm?

I’m wide awake at 3:30 am.  Fun, huh?  Wanna know what was on my mind?  I’m gonna tell you anyway…lol!!!

Do you pronounce the letter “r” in February?

Feb-you-ary

OR

Feb-roo-ary?

Swear.to.god.  This was one of the manyyyy things that I was thinking about in the wee hours of the morning.

Oh and a Valentine’s day charcuterie board.  Random, right?  So, now I have to hit up TJ’s at lunch and bring my vision to life.

And lastly….an egg roll in a bowl.  Ha!  I’m thinking ground turkey or maybe sausage?  Over a coleslaw mix.  With all kinds of seasonings.  Doesn’t that sound good?  Bringing that to life too.

Bay Bakes, again!  A few weeks back I shared Bailey’s beautiful Chocolate Mini Layer Cakes.  I was such a tease.  Ha!  I have planned to shared them the whole time.  Promise!  Just waiting till it got a little closer to Valentine’s Day.  As I think this would make the perfect festive treat.

Since it is the month of all things chocolate + flowers.

Made from a simple sheet cake.  Boxed…that’s our jam.  Or homemade cake batter.  Whatever you prefer.  These mini cakes are crazy simple to put together.

The best part.

The Buttercream frosting recipe.  Be careful…..it’s dangerous.  And you will have leftovers.  Which can be refrigerated for up to a month in an airtight container.  If you can keep your hands out of it for 30 damn days!

Sherpa Sweatshirt: Abercrombie

Hey Monday!  Anyone else think the Monday after Super Bowl should be a holiday?  Because, hot damn, I’m tired.  And I was in bed by 8pm.  Technically I didn’t really even watch the Super Bowl.  Really, I was just there for the food + booze + commercials.  I bought a shit-ton of pool squares and didn’t win a dime.  Typical.  Our weekend was everything I’d hoped it would be.  Chill AF.  But, I still accomplished all the things too.

 

Intentions for the Week:

  • sign making class with Emily Murphy Designs
  • work on photo editing the night before
  • go through Bay’s closet #growthspurt AGAIN!
  • donate + sale all everything before the weekend
  • wash my car inside + out
  • style a festive coffee table
  • deep clean bathrooms
  • make a cute Galentine for my main gals
  • watch Bay horse ride
  • insta story parmesan chips
  • hit the gym

 

This week on the blog: Greek Salad over hummus.  Abercrombie try-on.  Bay Bakes.  And we’ll see what else I can come up with!

Highlights from the weekend……

We started the weekend off with face mask night.  Minus Kissey (she was sick) so we’ll have to do it again soon.  My Mom had never done a face mask before so we treated her.  I tried to get her to let me shave her lips too, but it was a no go.  Maybe next time.

Floral Shirt $26// J.Crew Jeans $25// Mule Booties // Earrings // Bracelet 

Three things are making this cold rainy Wednesday better ✨

1. My new favorite jeans 👖 and would you believe me if I told you they are only $25? I’m gonna tell you all about em.

2. Wearing bright cheery yellow tops 💛and pretending it’s not freezing cold.  Bay and I both are sharing our #ootd’s today!

3. Bay’s ring light that made these early morning photos possible. I kinda want my own 💁🏼‍♀️

(I lied 🤥, I really have 4)

4. That Bogle chardonnay 🍷 I stuck in the fridge, because today is one of them days. It’s a minimum day.  Pig pens to clean 💩. Parent conferences. And Bays receiving an award at school tonight ❤️ So I’ll be drinking my dinner. Cheers 🥂

Before we get started with #ootd’s – let’s chat about the Ring Light, since I got so many questions about it.  Bay got this for Christmas.  And it’s legit!  Our house is a serious dungeon.  We have 2 windows, throughout the entire house.  And 2 sliders.  They are the length of our bottom floor, but still.  Our shack it dark!  AKA zero natural lighting.  Which makes taking photos really tricky.  This thing is a dream come true…lol.

A thick layer of caramel sandwiched between layers of white chocolate + crumbly oatmeal + cinnamon and sugar.

If you’re trying to fit into your skinny jeans.  Or on that new year, new me diet.  DON’T makes these.  I repeat….DO NOT MAKE these.  Just close this page right now and move on with your life…ha!

Bay made these right before Christmas.  And they are so bad.  In the VERY best way possible.

Crazy sweet.  Crazy good.  You can’t just have one.  You’ll go back and pick at it.  One of these kind of desserts.  Ya know what I mean?

Every time you walk past the dish, you’ll cut off a tiny little sliver.  Then next thing you know…..

They’re fucking GONE!

And no one know what happened or who ate them all.

Forreals though.

Monday!  The first Monday of 2019 that I hit the ground running.  Literally, well, more like walking…Ha!  Me and my morning walking/workout partner have been under the weather, so it was nice to get back at it today.  Our weekend was chill AF, and it was much-needed.  I heard the word “hygge” (pronounced hue-guh) for the first time and decided to embrace it.  Meaning: The Danish word for the sensation of extreme coziness and deep contentment.  Lit some candles.  Pulled out all our cozy blankets.  And straight up kicked it Sunday morning – afternoon.  I found this new eucalyptus variety at Trader Joe’s and it added the finishing touch to my coffee table vibe.

Hope you had a great weekend and are ready to kill it this week.  And if not, that’s perfectly okay too!

 

Intentions for the Week…..

  • Keep it simple
  • Be kind
  • Get more sleep
  • Know my limits
  • Recycle + reduce household waste
  • Worry less
  • Drink more water
  • Let shit go
  • Meditate
  • Say no without any guilt
  • Keep making ALL THE THINGS around me pretty AF

 

This week on the blog…..

FRIIIIDAYYYYY!  You guys, there is only one more Friday left in 2018!  So NUTS!  What’s on the agenda today?  Shopping? Wrapping?  I have finally completed my Christmas shopping.  Miracles do happen…HA!  Just patiently waiting for the final packages to arrive….with my fingers crossed.  I got up super early this morning.  Turned on the Christmas tree lights.  Made a cup of coffee.  And had a serious wrapping sesh.  The UPS delivery guy dropped of more packages at 6am…and they are officially wrapped and under the tree.  4 more sleeps till Christmas!

How great is it having a full weekend before the Holiday madness hits?  We have a couple more {christmas traditions} to mark off the list.  Then I foresee, lots of lounging and hanging out at home.  Which I’m so looking forward too.

ONE – Target Top // I walked into Target the other day….how many sentences have I started like that…lol!  So, I walked in.  Spotted this Who What Wear top out of the corner of my eye.  Straight up got out of the long ass customer service line (I was like 2 peeps from being next).  And grabbed the top!  In the meantime about 38 people got in line in front of me.  But, I got the top!  And that’s all that really matters.  It’s super cute guys.  Get one!

TWO – Mary Poppins Returns // Last night my Mom, Bay and I went to see the new Mary Poppins movie.  You guys, it’s so good.  Stick it on your list of things to do while your kids are on Winter break.  I was a little bummed they didn’t sing a Spoonful of Sugar though.  Now I need to get my hands on the original.  Bay doesn’t think she’s ever seen it.

Watch the trailer here: Mary Poppins Returns Trailer
