Here we are at the end of another week. Cheers to us as we survived! I'm sipping on my venti blonde misto from beloved Starbucks as I type this (actually writing on Saturday am because my Friday was crazy-town). My mom introduced me to this drink years ago and it is now a staple in my book. Its basically like a cheaper latte. You're welcome. Here are a few things that grabbed my interest this week.
Anyone else ready for fall attire?! I can hardly wait however I have been deliberating over the boots situation. My tall brown boots have nearly bit the dust so wondering whether to buy a new pair or buy a new ankle bootie. What are your thoughts? My style board is full of gingham and tiny bits of leopard print. Lately I've been admiring vests. I'm loving this look. We have been daydreaming about renovating again. Heaven help us! I saw this pic on Pinterest and loved the oversized lantern over the kitchen table.
I love to read blogs and I have a few favs that almost always say something that I'm convinced they meant just for me. Hands Free Mama is one of those blogs. I've never met her but would love to drink coffee with her and glean advice. This post called Where Your People Are is so good. I need to make sure that my girls remember to just know where their people are when they feel scared. "Even if I am not with you, know for certain that I am waiting for you and praying for you."
You guys, I started my grain free, sugar free, I hate life diet this week. Honestly, it seemed easier than the first time I did this, but by Friday I. WAS. OVER. IT. Somehow I withstood temptation Friday night ... probably because I went to bed at 9:30. Here is my board full of recipes. Some may need to be tweaked to be fully compliant with my diet.
If you ended this week like I did where you felt like laying in fetal position in your closet and not coming out, then you NEED to watch this video. I absolutely love Jimmy Fallen. In fact, as of this moment, I'm adding him to the short life of people I want to meet (which includes George W. Bush and Bill Murray.) You will not be disappointed.
And lastly, since I started this post about coffee, I'll bookend it with coffee. Our favorite brand of coffee is Lion from Hawaii. I just love their branding.
There was a small local market in our last city that sold it but I have yet to find a place in Atlanta that sells it. We ran out yesterday hence why I'm drinking the misto this morning. You really should try some. Just come over one afternoon and I'll brew a pot in our Bunn. Makes a full pot of coffee in 3 minutes!! Glory, hallelujah!
Have a great weekend!
