Oh happy weekend 1.16.15

Well who knew that this week would end up being the most exciting of my entire life?! I still cannot believe that I am engaged! (More to come on this!) Gary and I are on cloud 9 and are so grateful for all the love and well wishes that we've received over the last few days. And now, so ready for the weekend and time to bask in all this excitement. Maybe it will even sink in.

Ready to jump into the planning process!

This study says go cheap and big on your wedding day (thanks for sending, Dad)

Inspired to read the most popular modern love columns

Instead of brunch, how about a spot of tea?

After three days of cleansing, this video made me laugh out loud!

Hoping these lavender cookies turn out as beautiful as the pictures

This made me think about the state of my oldest friendships

Believe it or not, this weird accessory was the must-have of the holiday season 

Can't tear myself away from all the wedding blogs!

Oh happy weekend 11.7.14


Fall is in full swing here in Northern California but I do appreciate that temps are still getting up to the high 70s. This weekend will be a bit of a college throwback at the birthday party of a fellow Bucknellian. Requested attire: Fall's Finest, including elbow pads, plaid and vests - what my preppy collegiate self was made of. Also on the agenda, a group dinner with close friends at this Bay Area landmark, and a T-Swift SoulCycle class!

Bay Area local? Get your craft on this weekend!

When the temps drop I must make this classic dish.

My ultimate running inspiration.

So many ways to eat this tropical tuber.

A married couple and their year of dates.
This Southern city is on my fall getaway wish list.

My favorite drink get's a fall makeover.

No weekend is complete with out freshly baked treats.

What I'm reading now

I never used to read multiple books at one time but there are just too many books on my list so these day's I've been doubling up. I usually pair a novel with a memoir or some other non-fiction, as I often read different genres at different times or in different locations, depending on my mood. Especially in the summer, everyone needs a good vacation read (in which case I recommend The Vacationers, not pictured here!) If you're need any fitness motivation you know which of these to pick up, and if you want a good cry.... read on to find out:

1. The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt - This took me ALL summer to read but it's totally worth it. Plus then you can join the rest of the universe in saying you're reading "The Goldfinch."

2. Finding Ultra by Rich Roll - I am fascinated by ultramarathon runners and ultra-athletes. Roll's journey to overcome obesity (and much more) to become the athlete he is now (and always has been on some level) is at times completely unbelievable. It will certainly make you think, if Rich can do it, I can (whatever your goal may be)!

3. If I Stay by Gayle Forman - Take note: Do not try to read book this in public as I spent one full day doing - from airport to plane to train. I couldn't keep the tears from coming. That is all.

4. The 5 Love Languages by Gary Chapman - Take the quiz first, then you'll want to know more!

Wellie Wednesday 9.10.14

I am such a sucker for Wellies in all their colorful rubbery glory...and when they are pint-sized. I die.
