Another weekend here! Here’s what we’ve been loving and thinking about!
JENNA:Wearing: Okay I’ve been on a “spending freeze” of sorts but found myself at Old Navy recently dying over EVERYTHING! Seriously they’ve done such a good job this season and everything is 40% off right now! I grabbed these high waisted bottoms, this awesome poncho, these neon pink sandals and this killer shirt.
Reading: I am reading and re reading this book I recommended a few weeks ago. I really can’t tell you enough how it’s changed the experience in our home! Everyone, including myself are happier!
Listening: Well mostly Periscope. Honestly I’ve stopped watching TV or listening to Podcasts so much since I follow some amazingly inspirational people on that app. I LOVE IT!
Decorating: I just got this art print framed and I’m dying to have it done and up in my room!! Can’t wait to see it!! Also have this rug on the way! More on both these items later!!
Watching: The Bachelor. Always.
Feeling: At peace. Since I weaned Lolly and went on our trip to the Philippines I’ve had terrible anxiety. From what I’ve researched and read online it’s really common to feel this way when you stop nursing. I’ve been doing some natural things to regulate my hormones and am also seeing a naturopath! Anyone have experience with this? It is getting better and I’m glad to have relief and looking forward to feeling all the way better!
Wearing: With our girlfriends’ trip to Vegas last week I basically just took dresses. Loved each of these options and how easily they could be dressed up or down depending on where we were headed. Loved this off the shoulder pool cover-up, the laser cut detailing on this blue dress, and this red number is so slimming!
Reading: Finished All the Light We Cannot See. I’ve read a lot of World War II books and this had such a fresh perspective for me. From Hitler’s acquisition of valuable art to the preparation of Nazi soldiers as young as 12. It was so thought-provoking! Beautiful writing, too – of course, he won the Pulitzer.
Listening: While in Vegas eating (of course) I heard this song – Happiest Man on Earth by Broken Back. It stopped us all in our tracks. Downloaded it immediately. Don’t you love it when that happens?
Decorating: You can see from my Instagram here, but even though we don’t have a gender yet, I’ve been haphazardly collecting things for the nursery. I loved using Framebridge’s service to frame my Parisian Souvenir. You mail your art in and they frame and ship it back! I picked up this Map of Paris from Minted and these plexi Cacti from Love and Victory! What this nursery will end up as I have no idea. But it’s a happy, sentimental start!
Watching: My buddy Kimmy recommended this show to me after we both loved Grand Hotel — Velvet! Have you seen it? Based around a fashion house in the 1950’s and I’m on episode 1 but already loving it. So far up my alley! Subtitles but get on board, people!
Feeling: Mild panic? Trying to pace myself and take one day at a time, but the next couple months are crazy! Next up, a surprise trip to Disney for my boys with most of their cousins! Park Savers to the rescue, as always!
Eating: Had to update for those who asked – we tried the rest of the Good Table’s crusts from our partnership this month and they are killer! My kids love Chicken Satay with Peanut Sauce and this Peanut Crust for chicken was a huge hit! Hayes loves salmon, but that’s about it fish wise, so we snuck this Lemon and Herb crust on tilapia and they both went to town. Sweet! Find our original post and printable here!
Decorating: As you all know by now, I have an affintiy for coffee table books. This is my latest love
, for any Apple lover!
Wearing: I’ve been wanting a new fresh lip color for spring
. I spotted this on our trip to Vegas over the weekend and it seemed perfect! It’s ultra wear and stays for HOURS. // Also just bought these
(i bought the black ones last year and loved them so much i needed Tortoise as well). I think it was a really good move.
Drinking: I learned about Soma last year when I went on a retreat they sponsored in San Francisco. Never have I loved a water filtering system like I love this. IT’S GORGEOUS!
I love having it on the table for get-togethers. People always ask me about it, so I thought id shout it from the rooftops here.
