Friday faves

It was another quick week for us! With celebrating my birthday mid-week, it’s been hard to be motivated the past few days.

Took my new Pottery Barn coupes that I snagged at HomeGoods for a test run!

Speaking of celebrating my birthday, Marcus and I had the most amazing lunch on Wednesday at one of our local favorites, Table 128. The service was spot on and the plexiglass dividers and ample distance between tables made us feel quite safe. I cannot recommend this place enough!

Marcus and I don’t really exchange birthday gifts, but I did manage to buy myself something that I truly needed this year: new running shoes. I know, not exciting at all!

We took our family photos a few weeks ago, so now I am on the hunt for the perfect Christmas card design and layout. Really loving the creative ideas from Artifact Uprising this year.

Friday faves

[my furry coworker]

Guys, I’m going to try my darnedest to bring Friday faves back to life here after taking a bit of a break. In case you are new around these parts, I try to round up things that are bringing me joy in this space each week. Sharing means caring, right?!

On a recent trip to Marshall’s, I stumbled upon the brand Vintage Havana, which are a great lower priced option for Golden Goose sneakers. I snagged these shoes for $24.99!

Christmas decor is hitting the shelves of our local Target and I’m so incredibly excited to decorate this year! I picked up this countdown and Everett was amped. He is my holiday lovin’ mini me.

And lest you forget how much I love the holidays, my favorite time of year is here starting today – non-stop Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channels. The new ones kick off tomorrow night and I am so flippin’ ready.

Download: Labor Day Weekend 2020

We spent the long weekend soaking up some of the last lake days of the season. And it’s a good thing too, because are temps are now in the 50s today! From magnums of Veuve to my first PepperHarrow CSA pick-up, I’d say it was a pretty darn good one.

Back to school breakfast 2020

Going back to school looks very different for many of us this year. My boys will be doing in-person learning at their school, and in the midst of all the craziness, I wanted to make sure I still kept up my tradition of creating a fun back to school breakfast for both of them.

Their official start dates were a week apart, so they got to enjoy two breakfasts from, as we like to call it, the first day fairy.

Hope your kiddos are off on their own school year adventure, however that may look!

Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020: faves for boys

While everyone’s situation is different for schooling this year, I always use the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale to snag staples for the boys. I have a feeling we will be spending a lot of time outdoors, so boots and coats are a perfect pick! And while we aren’t traveling right now, I was surprised to see the JetKids Bedbox in the sale. We have taken these for the boys on all of our long plane rides and they have been a lifesaver!
