Week & End

10:17:14 - Houndstooth Coffee

Happy Friday, friends! Today has been a good day, one that started out with an early morning yoga class and an impromptu pit-stop at Houndstooth Coffee (pictured above – I think a calligraphy-ed version of their tagline about coffee & people would look great as a framed print), continuing on with lots of items checked off of my to-do list and burrito bowls with one of our sweet volunteers in our office. The weather is perfect and I’m listening to the Bittersweet audiobook for the thousandth time and I’m so thrilled that it’s the weekend. There is hardly anything on the agenda, except lots of rest, pedicures with girlfriends, reading good books, taking Callie on lots of walks, and whipping up several batches of tortilla soup.

Enjoy your weekend as well as some fun posts from around the interwebs!

Our wedding is going to be featured on Style Me Pretty on Wednesday! I am so, so, so excited! I’ll be sure to share the link here when the post goes live.

Speaking of weddings, my sweet friend Blair got engaged a few weeks ago and her proposal was captured by a local news photographer, who then sought out Blair’s fiancé so the whole world could read their story. It is so, so sweet, and the pictures are fantastic!

After I finish the tortilla soup I plan to make this weekend, I want to try this crock pot pumpkin chili recipe that Becca passed along. Doesn’t it look so seasonally delicious?

My most recent post went live on Darling Magazine’s blog last week and it’s about three books that can help propel you to greatness. Check out this list and let me know what you think – do you have any titles to add?

I though this was a fun article: “The Perfect Wine for Runners’ Favorite Foods.” I want to try a Sangiovese with my next steak and some Sancerre the next time we go out for sushi!

Dang, y’all, it’s Friday already? No complaints here, of course, but I apologize for my lack of posts the past couple of days! The short workweek threw me off a bit and time just seemed to fly by.

What are you up to this weekend? I’m hosting a small group retreat at our house tonight and I’m so excited for quality time with some of my favorite ladies. We’re going to make our own pizzas (experimenting with combinations like fig, prosciutto & arugula), drink wine, and have a slumber party – so fun! The rest of the weekend will be fairly low-key, which is just lovely.

Have a fabulous Friday & enjoy some fun links from around the web!

James & I are so beyond excited that the second season of Derek is now available on Netflix! We plan to hunker down with a bottle of wine and blow through all of the new episodes in one sitting (yep, we love the show that much).

After the aforementioned shared bottle of wine, James & I are starting our quarterly 10-day AdvoCare cleanse. I used to dread having to give up dairy, alcohol, sugar, and caffeine (amongst other treats, like pizza and chips with queso) for an extended period of time but now that I’ve got a few cleanses under my belt, I’m actually looking forward to it – I feel so energized afterwards.

Speaking of the cleanse, this looks like a delicious (and healthy!) smoothie that I need to make in the very near future.

I love all of Sugar & Cloth’s IKEA hacks – I definitely want to recreate her headboard and nightstands. Add this pretty bar cart to the list, too.

I have enjoyed The Atelier’s stationery for awhile now but I’ve never taken the plunge and ordered any paper products. These striped shirt notecards as well as these palm leaf cards have pushed me over the edge – I must have both!
