Friday Favorites

Love this quote! Sail away with me...
 Happy Friday!
I was in NYC for work this week so I'm ready to be home and get the weekend started!
This weekend will be spent with family (Mother's Day) and Sunday will be 10 years since J + I started dating...crazy it's been so long (and how much we've gone through since being twenty-somethings in college)! 

I can't tell you how excited I am for this new "Little Prince" trailer! It's one of my favorite books so I love that this movie will help the story reach a new, younger audience!

These newly discovered items from Frida Kahlo's wardrobe are amazing - especially the red boots!

This bathtub is amazing! 

 This ATL bucket list is a winner. I really want to do #19 (no surprise there)!

I am so excited about this new show, because I love Jenny Slate (if you haven't seen "Obvious Child" you must go watch it now)!

Hope you have a fabulous weekend and let love rule!

Fashion: Day + Night Pieces

Day + Night
Since I am trying to make my wardrobe more about quality over quantity, items that are easily translatable (from work, travel, relaxing, and a night out) are my favorites. I love this outfit because the elements are super simple, but when combined, they look polished and playful. Obviously you could substitute the ripped, boyfriend jeans for some dark skinny jeans or flares too!

What are some of your favorite items that work during the day and for a night out?

Weekly Tiny Home: Swedish Seaside Cottage

I love this little yellow cottage situated on a beautiful lake in Kalvsvik, Sweden. This lakeside cottage was built in 1934 and renovated in 2008. Within the 538 square feet space, there is an open kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, bed loft, and a large patio (where I imagine most of the Summer is spent). I love open floor plans where the kitchen is connected directly with the living room so that you can cook, but still be present with friends + family. The interior white walls makes the space feel larger and fresh The door in the living room opens up to a large outside patio with amazing views of the lake - I would love to enjoy wine and nighttime fire pit time with my favorites here!
The decor is simple and the paneled walls give the cottage so much character!
I could get used to that view - how about you?
If you want to read more about the cottage, go here.

Happy hump day!

Clean Streets

Here's the latest Storycorps animated short!
As always, it doesn't disappoint. 
It amazes me how much the human voice and our relationships can impact the world. Whether someone is a teacher, employee, parent, or garbage worker, there is the opportunity for greatness and friendship. There is also a great deal to be said about a strong work ethic and a good attitude!

Weekend Recap

Hey y'all!
I hope you had a lovely weekend!
Friday night was a peaceful one. I took Townes on a walk and he kept wanting to stop and roll around in the grass. It's so cute so naturally I indulge him. Since I'm still not feeling well, I spent time in the hammock and just tried to take in the perfect weather and chirping birds.
 The knockout roses are in full bloom. I wish I had some honeysuckles since they smell so amazing when I walk the neighborhood.
On Saturday morning, I took Townes on a walk in the woods. It's the best way to start the day!

Afterwards, I made myself a smoothie and mowed the lawn. I actually love mowing the yard - especially when the weather is so perfect outside.

Afterwards, I enjoyed some more hammock time (I have to embrace it as much as possible before the mosquitoes are in full effect). 

On Saturday night, we went to Fellini's for pizza to hang out with our closest friends + baby Jake! I can't get enough of his sweet face and big cheeks!

 Despite annoying everyone by wanting a photo, I was able to get them to agree to a selfie. Worth it!
 J + I ended the night with a fire on the back porch. The sky + stars were lovely and it was nice since the night was slightly chilly.

 On Sunday, I woke up early and enjoyed some coffee, a new book, and some cuddle time with Townes. I look awful in the below picture, but Townes was being so sweet! We took a nice walk before heading to my folks' house.

We had a belated birthday celebration for my mom. Sadly we missed celebrating last weekend since I was sick and schedules weren't aligning. My mom wanted to take it easy so we decided to spend the day at my folks' house by the pool and grill out. The neighbors' cat had some kittens and Natalie brought them over. I definitely wanted to take the little calico girl kitten home!
 My lovely sister and me!

Townes's smile and my mom with her sister. So cute!
 The food was amazing. We had burgers (veggie burgers too) with corn, mac n cheese, baked beans with peppers and onions, and potato salad. For dessert, mixed cheesecake!
I think my mom had a great day which is all that mattered! She's the best!

 How was your weekend?
I'd love to hear about it!
