Hellooooo. Happy Friday! Thank you so much for your awesome comments on my yoga teacher confession post. Let it be known there were no sanskrit fails this week, and the only person doing kombuchakasana was me after class. 😉
It’s still been raining like crazy over here, so we’ve been enjoying lots of indoor adventures.
[Eating pickles at Jumpin’ Jacks, where they can run free and jump on all of the inflatable structures…instead of the couch]
If we can catch some sun, I’m excited to take the girls berry picking this afternoon! We tried to go yesterday, but it rained, so we picked froyo toppings instead.
We’ve already done a number on the teeny blueberry bush in our backyard,
so it’s time to outsource.
It’s the weekend! YES. All week I look forward to Friday because I finally get to hang out with the Pilot. During the week, we constantly high-five and switch off (he gets home from work and I jet off to teach at night, then we grab a glass of wine, clean the kitchen and crash), and the weekend is like a big exhale from the hustle and bustle. We don’t have a lot planned: just a date night, a baby shower, and I’m headed to coffee with a friend. Other than that, I’m looking forward to getting more things for the house put together and enjoying time as a family.
[Hoping to have our house tour up soon. My 50mm lens is stuck on the camera, so it’s been fine for food photos, but terrible for anything else. Hoping I can get it fixed and use it like a real camera again.]
It’s also Father’s Day this weekend! You know I’ll be giving the Pilot the same gift he gave me: some morning hours of extra solitude and sleep before we chill as a fam.
In standard Friday fashion, here are some faves from the week and around the web. I always love to hear about your faves, too, if you’d like to shout them out in the comments section.
-These cookies (<— I get them at Thrive Market). YOU GUYSSSSSSSSS. I’m a huge fan of the Simple Mills brand for baking mixes, and it hadn’t even occurred to me to try their boxed cookies. They are like the little Chips Ahoy cookies from my childhood, but made with awesome ingredients. The girls LOVE them but to be honest, I didn’t tell them we had cookies until both boxes were 1/2 gone. Oops. haha
-New ghillie sandals (I may or may not do a little Irish step dancing to make sure they’re just right). I got a little overzealous tying my last pair from Nordstrom Rack, and broke one of the straps. I’d already worn them out, so I decided to roll with different brand. These are super soft and comfy, and I like that they match everything. They’re super cute with a sundress or my favorite destroyed jean shorts and a tank.
[A super simple dinner one night the Pilot worked late: brown rice, mixed veggies and chicken, with coconut aminos, garlic, ginger, and a drizzle of honey)
These weepy trees that seem to be everywhere. I’m not sure what they’re called, and I could probably Google it, but I think they’re so beautiful.
That pic was taken in front of the Crescent, which is my favorite building in Valdosta. This picture doesn’t do it justice; it’s absolutely breathtaking. It makes me wish the Pilot would marry me again so we could celebrate there. The white columns are massive, and it’s the architecture is definitely unlike anything I saw growing up in AZ.
If you’re looking for a workout today, try this barre burner.
Hope you have a wonderful Friday!
