We’ve officially been doing the Diary posts every other Saturday for a year! Figure it’s a good time to check in to see how you’re liking the posts. I had considered dropping down my weekend posts for a while, but decided to try something new on Saturdays, rotating between a product round up and a Diary post. It seems to be successful from my end and helps me better plan my editorial calendar without having to drop the weekend posts!
Mike and I had the nicest Valentine’s Day at home. We had toyed with the idea of going to Brooklyn for a concert but staying home was more our speed! Mike made copy-cat Chick-Fil-A sandwiches and homemade french fries and we watched a few episodes of The Crown. We’re hooked!
That weekend we also went into the city for a surprise birthday party, which was a blast. They had a doughnut wall and I haven’t had a Krispy Kreme in forever and I forgot how amazing they are. No joke, I had two and then brought another one to eat on the drive home, haha! I’m grateful we don’t have one nearby– it’d be too dangerous.
I finally feel like I’m figuring out my haircut. I know it’s not actually short, but it did feel so much “shorter” than what I had. I always feel like it takes a couple of weeks to get the hang of styling a new length!! I also fully believe good hair days should be celebrated– ha!!
(Had some questions about the wallpaper on IG stories– it’s from One Kings Lane!)
I was asked to come speak with a group of high school girls. It’s one of my favorite things to do. These girls were so smart and thoughtful. The best part though? I got to see Ari (remember when she took over my blog last spring?!) She’s a freshman now!
Just a cute little guy.
If you haven’t tried RXBARS, I can’t recommend them enough. I always try to keep a few on hand for hangry moments. The coconut chocolate is my favorite flavor at the moment. Tastes like a “healthy” Mounds bar.
We had Mike’s parents over for dinner last week. After dinner we braved the freezing temps and walked into town for ice cream. The temperature had plummeted so it was probably a little overly optimistic on our end, but ultimately worth it for some delicious ice cream!
I am so grateful for the sun staying out later! And we’re going to have even more light when we spring forward next week. The afternoon light in our kitchen is my FAVORITE. It sparks so much joy. We had zero natural light in our kitchen in Hoboken so I do not take this for granted!!! I say a little prayer of gratitude every time I catch the light like this.
Everyone met up for breakfast on Sunday morning before a family nature walk. Ryan (Mike’s goddaughter) is the sweetest. I was giving her back scratchies and she just rested her head on the table to get a little more comfortable. My heart.
Last weekend, Breville invited me to take a class on espresso making. It’s run through Williams Sonoma and if your local store offers one and you love espresso, I definitely recommend signing up. It was so fun and a really great afternoon date idea.
