Feeling: Exhausted. This week has been crazy hectic with my work’s move to our new office. Between trying to settle into my new role as an executive assistant and trying to get settled into my new office – it’s been a lot. My guess is that this long holiday weekend will be just what I need.
Netflixing: Criminal Minds. Can’t get enough of Hotch, and the gang. Ben and I watch at least two episodes per night before we go to bed.
Listening To: Lots of Jon Pardi (his new album California Sunrise is amazing), Steve Moakler, and Maren Morris.
Wedding: We are focusing on nothing but wedding things this whole weekend which is exactly what we need to do. The biggest item on the checklist that hasn’t been crossed off yet is a florist. I have some ideas of what I want from my Pinterest board, but I just can’t commit. Spending thousands of dollars on flowers that are just going to die after this day is said and done just seems silly to me. I’d rather invest that money elsewhere – ya know, like a future house.
Eating: Anything but tree nuts and annatto extract. At the ripe age of 25, I have developed my first ever allergy to tree nuts – self diagnosed from my food diary and extensive Googling. I still need to visit an actual allergist. I’ve gone my entire life without allergies, and then bam – here I am with my first ever. The food I miss most? Almonds. They were my go to snack. Who knew they were in with the “grows on trees” crew.
Wanting: ALL of the cute things for my new office at work. I’m cubicle-girl no more, so this means I get to decorate my own space. The color scheme on the furniture is grey, so I’ll be using whites, blacks, marble, and a touch or two of blush. I’m trying not to rush into buying things until I’m completely unpacked and settled in, but I already ordered this marble business card holder from Etsy. I know that next up will be this print. My plan is to create a mini gallery wall on one side that I can see as I walk into my office every day. Don’t worry, pictures to come.
I hope everyone has a fabulous long weekend. Happy Friday!
As much as I love trying new restaurants, I’m very guilty of sticking to the same staples that I know and love. Ben and I ventured out to #downtowndunedin a few weekends back primarily to get @nashkeepsup a fresh cut at the new @woofgangdunedin 🦁. Knowing his appointment could range from an hour or two, a brunch date sounded like the perfect way to pass the time. Surprisingly none of the usual go-tos sounded good 🤷🏻♀️. I was STUMPED (and hangry lol).
This led us to discovering #TheWildIrisCafe 🌺. When we walked by it the first time I kind of shrugged it off because I was keen on going somewhere I already knew and loved. By the time the hangriness took over (a quick switch that Ben knows all too well) I was ready to try just about anything.
The front porch aesthetic and string light decor at #TheWildIrisCafe is adorably inviting. I ordered their Farmer’s Toast (two words: goat cheese) and sweet potato home fries (!!!) while Ben opted for a burger 🍔. Let me tell you - I’m a girl that loves her avocado toast, but this Farmer’s Toast was a prime rival for it 🤯. It’s topped with goat cheese, strawberries, almonds and locally sourced honey all cradled on organic sprouted wheat toast. Each bite was texturally spot on. The sweetness of the strawberries played VERY nicely with the tartness from the goat cheese 🍓 and each bite of flavor was secured by the pings of local honey. 👏🏻
#TheWildIrisCafe is a tiny gem in downtown #dunedinflorida that’s just waiting to be discovered. Have you been yet? #tampabaybrunch #brunchspots #floridablogger #tampablogger #visitdunedin...
well, someone had to test the couch for prime nap-ability 😴 #mywestelm #westelm #nashwoodsbru #nashkeepsup #whitecouch http://liketk.it/2Xowg #liketkit @liketoknow.it #StayHomeWithLTK #LTKhome #LTKunder50...
let’s getaway ☀️🌴 do you have any trips coming up? Ben and I are tossing around ideas for a nature-focused vacation to happen in these last few months of 2020. Asheville is high on our list 👏🏻. I’m looking for hiking 🍄, orchards 🍎, and maybe a jacuuzi that has mountain top views while you soak 🏔. @nashkeepsup is coming with us wherever we end up 🦊. http://liketk.it/2XlcG #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKtravel #LTKunder50 #LTKswim...
It’s Friday and I feel like playing games - how tall do you think I am 🤪? I’m always mind blown when I find out the actual height of people IRL vs when I see them in movies, photos, etc. http://liketk.it/2WNcP #liketkit @liketoknow.it #LTKsalealert #LTKunder50 #LTKstyletip...
