{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

It’s International Chardonnay Day and IF I were going someplace fun for happy hour to celebrate, this is 100% what I’d wear. Clearly even Charlie is over my backyard happy hours too 🐶 🙄

I rounded up a shit-ton of affordable dresses.

This floral mini dress I’m wearing here is under $40 🤜🏻💥🤛🏻

And before we get started. My Big ass wine glasses are on sale! I get asked about them all the time. It’s 24 oz and hold almost an entire bottle of wine. Not that I’ve tried or anything 🙂 Wine Glasses

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!

Your quarantine nickname is your current mood + the last thing you ate.

So please call me hungover cinnamon rolls 😆🤷🏼‍♀️ 

What’s yours?

Speaking of cinnamon rolls – You guys were VERY into the cinnamon roll recipe that I shared on stories yesterday morning. And since we don’t do anything very exciting on the weekends anymore, this seemed a little more fitting than the typical weekend notes.

Weekend Plans?

Pizza tonight, always pizza on Friday nights. We’re trying Upper Crust Baking. You have to order in advance. Select a time. Then pick it up. I’ve heard it’s the BOMB, so stay tuned – I’ll report back. My photographer (aka Bailey) is going to help me shoot all my content for next week. Taking photos on weekdays gets tricky. I pay her in the form of cute tops. Getting crafty and making a succulent wreath for the 4-H Green & White Social. Going to watch my nephews play ball, if the rain holds out. Planning on taking a class at the gym too. Other than that, we are chillin.

Just a girl + her Trader Joe’s tulips🌷

Bay said this photo was so lame, but I’m clearly feelin it 💁🏼‍♀️

In other news….Bailey has challenged me to give up “online” shopping for lent. Not to be confused with shopping. Ha! I’d say 90% of my shopping is online, soooo. There’s that!

I have not accepted the challenge just yet. 40 days is a long ass time.

That’s over a month. Close to 6 weeks. 960 hours. FML!

Bailey will, in exchange, give up Tik Tok. Which is equivalent to my shopping addiction.

So, come next Wednesday, we have to make our final decision.

Basically I’ve been scouring the internet for all the things Spring. And ALL THE THINGS I really want to pull the trigger on before this 40 day spending freeze may possibly take place.
