{weekend notes}

On cloud wine 🍷 buzzed + real happy. This portrays exactly how I feel about spontaneous day trip to Napa 😁

This is the “million dollar” picture spot at Rombauer Vineyards and out of 10 perfectly posed photos – this was by far the best.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Get hella steps (fitness steps, that is)
  • Meal Prep my heart out
  • Plant my new Rainbow Gold Bougainvillea to climb the brick fireplace
  • Bathe the stinky dogs
  • Focus on good sleep
  • Complete the Laundry Room makeover
  • Face mask night with Bay
  • Buy a shit-ton of mulch for the front yard
  • Take good care of myself
  • Put together our new Console Table (thanks Mom + Dad)

{weekend notes}

Home Sweet Home // our new happy place!

Good morning friends! In case you missed it on Instagram + Facebook…..we bought a house. I never shared here, as I was so busy with the move and all the paperwork that goes along with it. We finally got somewhat settled in and I’m ready to get back on here and share.

How was everyone’s weekend? I hope it was a GREAT Fourth of July celebration for you.

While it looked and felt different than usual, we tried to make it special anyway.

Intentions for the Week:

  • Prep for this weekends yard sale
  • Write Thank you’s
  • Work in the yard
  • Wallpaper Bay’s room
  • Take some outfit photos
  • Wash windows
  • Get some Mezger Zinnias
  • Be better at drinking water (dehydrated AF)
  • Go on long walks with Charlie to scope out the new hood
  • Celebrate my sisters birthday
  • Give my house plants some much needed TLC

{random things to do during quarantine}

SHOP: Stripe V-Neck Peplum Popover Top (40% off) | High-Rise Toothpick Jean (50% off) | Coin Necklace ($20)| Seaside Slide Sandals ($14)

I’m bored in the house and I’m in the house bored (now this song will be stuck in your head all day too)

While we’re all home, for how long (who the fuck knows). I thought we might as well make a list of that annoying shit we never want to do. You know, back when we had busy schedules. Social lives. Seems like a really long time ago. Ha! All those things we put off? On the weekends I get really anxious from too much scrolling + refreshing news stories about Coronavirus. So, I’ve decided that I am focusing on what I CAN control and doing things around my house to be productive (when I get sick of scrolling + sitting on the couch + drinking).

 I know it’s so tough to stay home but while we’re all here, we might as well make the most of it, right?

And get check some things off the list that you’v been putting off FOR-EVVVV-ERRRR!

{4 ways to wear a utility jacket}

SHOP: Utility Jacket | Cami (similar) | Levi’s (manic monday) | Heels | Sunglasses | Necklace

Hi friends. Doing something a little different today. Do we call it a styling session? I’m not really sure? Ha! I’ve been trying to get this post up since September and somehow just haven’t gotten around to to. Maybe because it’s a little out of my comfort level? Who knows, but I decided today was the day! So here we go…..

I’ve deemed the utility jacket to be a closet staple. It’s a piece that can be worn so many ways. I hope this post inspires you to shop your closet and find ways to style your favorite jacket. Since its cold AF and jackets are all of the sudden very necessary.

Leopard weather! Spotted this puffer vest and couldn’t say no.

You guys, it’s been a week! Do I say that every week? Ha! I’ve declared today to be a day of all the things I love. We booked a family vacay to Cabo. The countdown is ON! I went to Trader Joe’s for lunch. And made a pit stop at Starbucks for the free cup. Day made. Tonight we’re going to the Lee Middle School fundraiser at Maria’s Cantina. So, I get to drink a marg and not cook. Double WIN! Lastly, Cory dropped off his ladder…..so that only mean ONE THING!

I’m busting out all the Holiday decor from the rafters! Can I get a WHOOP WHOOP!

{leopard everything}

On Wednesday’s we wear leopard!

Surprise, Surprise! A whole post dedicated to leopard print. I feel like leopard print has always been a major trend for years. But, it’s real, real BIG at the moment. You can find a little leopard something at basically any retailer. From shoes to PJ’s. Scrunchies – yep, scrunchies are another major thang. Especially for the tween + teens! That headband though. You know I’m feeling the headbands! Belts are perfect if you’re easing your way into the print. You know I love that leopard skirt and it’s on SUPER sale. Bundling up an outfit with a scarf or topping with that amazing pullover! To the gym or to the beach. I found something in just about every category!

HAPPY FRIDAY! We made it! Thanks for letting me vent yesterday. Loved reading all your messages. Totally made my day so much better. Had a great evening. Bay made dinner. We went on a walk. I didn’t sleep for shit. But, I got up early AF ready to kick off the weekend. Hit Nugget for their bacon..lol. Bay’s fave and I want to make homemade breakfast pizzas in the morning. And Raley’s to use all my Something Extra coupons. Ha! Bay and I had a coffee date at Scribblers Coffeehouse, our new fave place! All before 7:30 am. It’s gonna be a good day!

Weekend plans: Chill the f out. Sit by the pool. Hopefully get my peeps to take a hike with me. Do a little yard work. Meal prep. Have happy hour with GG. Catch a movie? I have a feeling The Art Of Racing In The Rain will make me cry my damn eyes out. And fingers crossed….make it to the new plant shop, Propagate Sac. What’s on your agenda for the Weekend?
