Friday Favorites

Music time

This has been the most frustrating week of my year so far. It seems like almost nothing has gone smoothly or come easily. In fact, I nearly lost this post as soon as I finished writing it. So much stress, for so little result. I’m hoping I can just shake it all off over the weekend, or maybe I should beware the ides of March? Either way, I’m so grateful that I have these awesome little dudes to brighten up my day. Also an awesome husband and my mom here helping me get through this time of transition. I know I’m in for many more hiccups, but I have a great family and just thinking about them like this makes me feel a little lighter.

James Franco is just too silly sometimes.

How gorgeous are these floral prints by Ashley Bailey?

While I don’t miss smoking, I do miss smoke break sometimes. (Now, I call them get up and walk purposefully but aimlessly around the building)

This meme sums up yesterday perfectly.

Who doesn’t love an Alton Brown food hack?

I finally picked up this cookbook. I don’t know why I slept on it so long. I love breakfast and it is A-MAZ-ING.

Have a wonderful and stress free weekend.

Vintage Photograph

Here’s another favorite of my grandmother, Stephanie, who you first met here. I believe this photo was taken sometime in the ’40s, when Mom-Mom was in her twenties. I’m not sure what the occasion was (I’ll have to ask her), but it was either a family vacation or they were visiting her brother Johnny when he was in the Army (most of my family was in the Army, I’m such a rebel). Anyway, I really love this look because it is 100% something I would wear tomorrow and feel great in. I love the sash on the skirt. When I talk about keeping things simple and not having a huge color palette in favor of texture and detail, this is exactly what I’m talking about. And the shoes? I love a little peep toe/ankle strap combo.

This photo reminds me of spring, and the fact that it’s almost around the corner. I love that you can see her dimples, something that has been passed down to our Cub. I wish I had time to get my hair that curly.

Hope you’re having a great week.

xo, S.
