This photo explains it all. Pure happiness. The week is almost over. We can relax, almost.
Did you hear about the rain in Houston? My hometown is literally under water. Houses, cars, business, parks and so many people homeless. Luckily my family is fine and unaffected. But my heart goes out to the many still struggling. To be honest, these constant weather emergencies, scare me. Global warming seems to be making the weather more erratic and I feel like all we can do is be cognizant of our waste and pollution. Every little bit counts.
This week was a combination of more house appointments, cleaning and lots of stressful “adulting”. So to offset the stress of buying a house and selling ours, we treated ourselves to a few fun things: an early morning Lake Harriet stroller run, work date Bahn Mi’s at Quangs, the most insane Mexican Brownie at Turtle Bread Co. and a romantic white wine mussel dinner with some shmancy wine.
This weekend is about friends and family time. I am so excited to catch up with a bunch of our friends and their gorgeous kiddos. Plus some fun girl time too! On the home front, we are starting sleep training for Miss Poppy tonight! Our little tater tot loves to keep the party going past 830pm most nights which leaves little down time for the parentals… so we are going to try a week long sleep training plan. Plus she is still waking up once in the middle of the night. Fingers crossed we can work through that too! Um, also she has 2 teeth! AHHH what’s next, she is going off to college?! SLOW DOWN!
Lastly living in Minnesota, the death of Prince has been devastating. But the way the community has paid their respect and celebrated this insanely talented proud Minnesotan has been pretty amazing. The city is lined with purple, his music is heard everywhere and he will truly be missed. I heard a quote from Alicia Keys this morning that I truly loved: “there have been many Kings but only one Prince.”
💜 Share the love this weekend 💜
Fatherhood painted by an artist. So touching and true.
Lawsuit against HGTV’s Love it or List it. Boo this crushes my dreams.
My lovely sis got me a pair of these light weight washable beauties in grey and I love them!
Victoria Beckham is saying no to heels. I’ve been a supporter of this forever so it’s nice to see it trending.
It’s been hard to give my hair some much needed love and cut. So my goal is to try this coconut treatment this weekend.
I’m obsessed with all of these dresses! Sad part is I’m too short to wear them!
On point apartment design. I want every piece of it.
Sleeping with sharks, why not? Craziest Airbnb yet!
Thinking of going dark for our new half bath. Thoughts?
