Happy Friday and happy unofficial start to summer!
It totally feels like summer has already arrived here in Michigan. It's been about 85 degrees all week and I am loving it. Although getting dressed has been a bit challenging as it usually isn't super warm like this before June, so I have literally one dress that I'm rocking almost every day! Luckily it's a cute one ;) We've had a busy week and I'm hoping this weekend will be equal parts productive and relaxing. Today I'm off for a cut and color (fresh highlights for summer yay!) and hitting up the food trucks downtown for lunch.
+ Now that the warmer temps have arrived, I'm breaking out two of my favorite things. One, this candle. Love love love. It's my summer scent! Second is a more recent favorite. I've become obsessed with this tanning lotion. I picked it up on a whim at Ulta before our babymoon and have been super impressed. I used it a loooong time ago and couldn't get past the smell, but it's so much better now. Don't forget to use a good body scrub beforehand (I'm loving this one) to ensure the color goes on evenly!
+ I ordered this quatrefoil mirror for the nursery and fingers crossed it's the finishing piece. Adorable and it's on sale right now, too. I cannot WAIT to share the nursery here on the blog. I'm so in love with it. Brady and I just sit in there and hang out, it's easily the best room in the house.
+ Speaking of our house, I've been on a curtain hanging kick. We have these curtains hung in a bunch of different rooms and I think they're the best. Dirt cheap, but they're still super great quality and look really nice (especially if you steam the wrinkles out of them). Highly recommend!
+ If you need a delicious meal for this weekend, I've got ya covered. Check it out here, but be prepared to drool all over your keyboard.
+ Time for some TV talk: what did you guys think of The Bachelorette premiere? I give it two thumbs up and I'm way too excited about all the drama to come this season. Jojo looked flawless and I kind of love Jordan, I hope he doesn't turn out to be a you know what. (PS. funniest Bachelor/ette recaps found here). And then there was the series finale of Nashville... not that impressed. I used to LOVE this show, but it's really gone downhill the past couple of seasons and I wasn't too sad to say goodbye. I thought the ending cliffhanger was dumb though, why can't shows just wrap everything up nicely?
+ Two trends I'm all about right now: anything yellow and off the shoulder. I'd like this dress (the price, get it now!!) and this top will be mine.
+ I'm sure you've heard... but Nordstrom is having it's half yearly sale ;) There are so many amazing sales happening this weekend that I plan on taking advantage of. I feel like I'm close enough to post baby that I can shop for myself and not feel bad about it! I have a post coming sometime this weekend with my favorites.
