Friday Love List

November 9, 2012


I hate to be a downer but the time change bugs me!  Does it bug you?  In this photo, which I took from the window of my office building, the sun is setting around 4:30ish.  I mean, really?  And if you are wondering about that traffic, YES it’s completely normal.  Anyway, enough complaining!

It’s finally Friday and I’m particularly excited about this weekend.  One of my best friends is getting married!!  I’ll be in Santa Barbara all weekend celebrating and I’m sure there will be multiple posts about it next week.  I rented a pretty fancy camera lens too and I can’t wait to break it in (not break it of course…that would be the worst ever).  I’m so looking forward to it!  Here are a few other things I’m loving this week:

Have a great weekend! x

Is it just me or do the weeks literally fly by?  I could swear I was just watching 4th of July fireworks and now I’m buying pumpkins for Halloween.  It’s weird how quickly time goes by as you get older.  Make it slow down!  And, ummm, speaking of time flying by, I can’t believe I’ve been with that guy for more than 7 years.  Crazy talk.  This photo was taken at my cousin’s wedding a few weeks ago – more photos to share on Monday.  In the meantime, here’s what I’ve been loving lately:

  • This is my new favorite shade of burgundy lipstick – perfect for fall!
  • Downton Abbey season 3.  I love you Lady Mary.  I’ve been sneak-watching the episodes on the interwebs, don’t tell anyone.
  • Crockpot turkey meatballs.  Slow cooker recipes are the BEST EVER.
  • Mini pumpkin pies.
  • Counting down the days until the Everlane silk blouse comes out.  They never disappoint.

Happy weekend!

Right now, it’s 11pm on Thursday night and I’m laying on the couch with my laptop and a carton of s’mores chocolate ice cream.  This is a lethal combination but I’m praying to the ice cream gods that no ill-fate will come upon my sweet macbook.  Why is this relevant, you might ask?  It’s not at all, so let’s talk about my favorite things I came across this week:

As I mentioned in my last post, my blog is getting redesigned (woop woop).  So please cross your fingers that the programming goes smoothly because that’s happening all next week.  And then hopefully we’ll look shiny and new!  So excited.  In the meantime, have a beautiful weekend.  Eat something delicious for me!

friday love list

Instead of posting the rest of my Hawaii photos (see the first post here), I’m actually just going to show you my favorite shot from the whole batch.  I want to stand there right now with my toes in the sand, looking out at that aqua water, thinking about all the beautiful things in life.  You too?  Sighhhhh.

Anyway, here are a few things I really loved this week:

Any fun plans this weekend?  I’ll be hitting up the Renegade craft fair for sureeee (again! last 2 ventures here and here).  Maybe a brunch or 2 thrown into the mix.  xo!

hawaii packing list

Tomorrow, I’m heading to Hawaii for a little vacation and I’m soo excited!  Currently, I’m trying to pack by laying out some favorite summer clothes on my bed.  Note: this is not a helpful way to pack seeing as I’m just taking pictures of the pile instead of actually putting it in a suitcase.

So today’s Friday Love List will actually be a Friday Pack List just to help me figure out what I’m bringing.  Coolio??

  • Lots o’ bikinis.  Right now, I’m really feeling the bandeau style tops so I can come home from vaca sans crazy tan lines.
  • Shorts!  I’m bringing rolled boyfriend shorts, cut-off denims, white denims, and high-waisted florals.
  • Chambray shirts and a few tanks.
  • A handful of dresses for nights’ out on the town.
  • Sandals and Espadrilles.  No heels, thank you.
  • Sunscreen, hats, and more sunscreen.  Maybe some surf spray for my hair.
  • Game of Thrones book 1

That was actually quite helpful.  Have a lovely, summer-filled weekend (woohoo for official summer status!!) and I’ll be back soon. xo!
