Hello, hello! Happy FriYAY! Big plans this weekend? Evan and I are going watch our little nephew show his bucket calf at the county fair, then we have a wedding, and finally a birthday party for our niece and nephew. It's going to be a jam-packed weekend, which should be super fun! Plus I'm getting a pedicure with my dear mother this afternoon, so that's always a win.

Whatever you do, I hope you enjoy it!

No Waitlist!
// Ipsy // If you've tried to sign up for Ipsy in the past, you've been placed on a waitlist. Yes, you can do various things to get off the waitlist (invite friends via email, post to Facebook, etc.) but RIGHT NOW you can sign up and skip the waitlist! Ipsy is having a special promotion -- here is my referral link. If you've ever wanted to try Ipsy ($10/month, cancel whenever), now is the time!

Juice Contract
// The New Yorker // I read this Shouts & Murmurs when we were relaxing at Holmes Lake last weekend and COULD NOT stop laughing. The cold-pressed (or any type of) juice craze has gotten completely out of control, in my opinion. This satire piece is absolutely perfect. Just perfect.

Daily Dogs Newsletter
// Buzzfeed // Ohhhhh, this is the best thing ever. Y'all know how obsessed I am with Reyna. She has turned me into quite the crazy dog lady. And I don't hate it. I stalk dogs on Instagram, I talk about Reyna all.the.time, and I have no problem going right up to people and asking if I can pet their dog. No shame, folks. Sign up for this newsletter and get a pic of a cute pup sent directly to your inbox!


weekend wrap-up

Good morning! My weekend was so lovely filled with good food, great friends, and a relaxing afternoon at Holmes Lake.


When Honest Abe's posted their weekly special last Monday, I just knew I needed it in my life. Evan and I went on Friday night and goodness, it did not disappoint!

Goron's Ruby:
- 6 oz. hamburger
- honey-sriracha coleslaw
- bacon
- blue cheese mayo
- cheddar
- arugula

Dare I say this might be my favorite burger from Honest Abe's? I know that seems like such a strong statement because I haven't had a burger there I haven't liked...but this just might be the best.


I got up early Saturday morning to try and beat the heat during my weekend run. I ran 4.3 miles, and the humidity was horrific. But I did it! It was a great start to the day. I spent the afternoon and evening with some dear sorority sisters. We drank (a lot of) wine and had fun reminiscing about college.

These ladies! I am so fortunate to have such amazing women in my life!


Sunday was pretty low-key, as I tried to recover from the night before. :) Evan and I took Reyna for a walk around Holmes Lake. It's a great 2-mile loop around the lake -- Reyna loves it!

We brought a blanket and some magazines and relaxed by the lake for a bit. It wasn't ridiculously hot yesterday, so we tried to take advantage of it!
