Thursday Thoughts

My wish list at Nordstrom seems to be growing everyday! There's so many cute things but do I really need any of it? Probably not! I will say I think i'm going to order this scarf! It's under $50 & looks soo cozy! This bag is super similar to two I own so I don't really need it unfortunately- but if you don't have a bag in this wine shade you should get this one! Rebecca Minkoff handbags are such great quality for the price.

Things I did this week // 

* As some of you may have noticed I did a little blog redesign! Which took waaaay longer than I had anticipated. The whole coding and HTML behind websites is super complicated. I got so frustrated trying to use photoshop to create a new banner Kyle ended up doing it for me! But I'm happy to say that I really like how it turned out! 

* Baked some acorn squash! This is a great side dish for fall time! You cut the squash in half and place it in a baking dish with a little water in the oven for about 35 mins at 375- then you take it out- flip it over and add butter & brown sugar then bake a little while longer- It's so delicious! I had mine with ham, green beans & fresh biscuits! 

*Tried to really relax & unwind at night- This is so important to do. The last few weeks have been so busy for me I was starting to get burnt out. I've been taking the time each night to turn off my phone- make some tea and just relax, it has been so good for me!

Things I'm doing this weekend // 

* Apple picking with friends! Every year Kyle & I go apple picking with my best friend Molly & her boyfriend- it's become quite the tradition so we're going on Saturday! 

* Heading to the middle of nowhere Vermont- Kyle insists that the best foliage is far away so he has requested we take a long drive- I can't complain though- pretty views & hot coffee isn't a bad way to spend a day. 

*Baking something! I think I might make some bread- Have you ever used a bread maker?? Life changing! There's nothing better than a loaf of bread you made! 

What are your weekend plans?

  1. I love that wine colored bag!! So chic. I don't have much planned for the weekend besides working on the blog!

  2. The banner you have now is so cute! I love the whole design of your blog. I've been trying to make a conscious effort to get off my phone as well; there are so many other more relaxing things I could be doing!

  3. i'm just hanging out with my husband and hopefully going surfing and eating some good food this weekend!

  4. We're going to get sushi and see a movie this weekend. Much needed because I've been stuck inside all week due to surgery.

  5. That bag is stunning! I need it this fall.

  6. Please put those booties in my closet. They're amazing! I'm so jealous that you're going apple picking. I was telling my boyfriend that I've never been to an apple orchard before. He's from up north, and I've lived most of my life down south. I hope y'all have an amazing time!

  7. Love this! I also redesigned my Blog and I love the fresh feel. Hope you enjoyed all your weekend activities!
