Embroidered Top & A Life Update

How is it already Thursday?! This week has flown by at record pace and I think I know why. We’ve been working away on getting everything prepped for our Blogging 4 Keeps photography workshop this weekend! There’s always so many things that bubble up at the last second and we spent all day Tuesday hashing out the final details. Since I’ve been locked away in my own little world, I’ve been feeling a little disconnected from what’s happening over here, so I figured I’d catch you up on what’s been happening in our lives lately!

This past weekend we were out of town with Rob’s family in Newport Beach. We didn’t have any other warm weather vacations planned this winter and I had been looking forward to it for weeks. For a hot second we thought we weren’t going to be able to go because something came up at work for Rob, but it worked out and we got to go as planned! It wasn’t nearly as warm as I would have liked, but it in the sun it felt amazing. Being oceanside is also pretty amazing for the soul! The entire trip, I kept telling Rob, “we should move here”—ha! I could easily get used to sunshine, the ocean and warmer weather year round!

Last week our home tour was featured on Rue Magazine! Aimée Mazzenga captured our space perfectly and every time I look at the pictures I get the itch to tidy up our currently messy house.

This adorable embroidered top from Anthropologie arrived and I’m completely smitten! I’m in love with the ruffled details on the sleeves, the gorgeous embroidery and the colors!. I’m already looking forward to wearing it to a Cinco de Mayo party!

Some new beauty products arrived from Herbivore and I’m so excited to try them! I’ve been obsessed with their Lapis Facial Oil since I picked it up a month ago and I’m looking forward to trying more of their all natural products like the Blue Tansy Mask, Moon Fruit Night Treatment and their Bamboo Charcoal Soap.

Oliver got pink eye. I know what you’re thinking—dogs can get pink eye?! Apparently so! This is actually the second time he’s gotten it, and of course it happens right before we leave for vacation! FYI, giving a dog eye drops is no easy task.

The Everygirl hosted a little open house last week to show off their adorable office space. It was so much fun to catch up with some friends that I hadn’t seen in forever, even though I couldn’t stay too long!

This might go without saying, but I am soooo ready for spring. Yesterday’s sunshine and next week’s forecast has me hopeful that winter is officially over! Who else is ready to pack up their winter boots and pull out their favorite sandals?!
