Happy Friday, Friends! It’s been a crazy week and it’s not slowing down so let’s do this!


ONE | Someone is celebrating their FIRST birthday tomorrow with 50 of his closest friends 😉 No toys needed, somebody just get this kid a washer/dryer system and he is good to go! I did not expect to be so emotional as I prepped for this party, but it has been a rough week. All my mind can think about is how fast the past year went and how fast the next 17 are going to go…sigh.


TWO | I scooped up this top (thanks for the recommendation Caycee!) and I LOVE it! When I first pulled it out of the box I thought “why on earth would I have ordered this?!” (I think it was the tie-front that was scaring me) but when I put it on I was sold! Super flattering.


THREE | I made these Jalapeno Grapefruit Margaritas for Cinco de Mayo and I would highly recommend if you are a marg drinker. Spicy and sweet, but not too sweet! I also realized that maybe I should invest in some sort of hand juicer because my hand was cramping by the time I squeezed all the limes and grapefruit.


FOUR | I have been almost obsessively thinking about our upcoming beach vacay during this super stressful work week (which has been pretty helpful with my usual stress-eating, ha). I can’t wait to see how Cam does on the beach now that he is a little older than the last time we went! If is likes sand on his feet like he likes grass on his feet, we’re in big trouble because that would be not at all.


FIVE | I feel like everyone and their brother has read this book so this weekend I decided to see what the fuss was about and downloaded the audio book to listen to while I ran errands. It gave me Shonda Rhimes vibes (here’s a love story, rip the apart/your heart out, rinse & repeat over and over and OVER) but I definitely liked it and would recommend!

Have a great weekend!
