Monday Morning Musings | No. 215

It was a low key, but lovely weekend…

Honestly, I sat down to write this post and was like WHERE did the weekend go!? I feel like we did a lot, but also… not?! I don’t know, I’m genuinely confused! It all feels like a blur. Do you ever have weekends like that?

On Saturday we spent the morning celebrating my niece’s second birthday, which was just so sweet! We did tea and cake and sang all the Frozen songs inside her very cute new cardboard castle… it was a blast! And on Saturday evening we ended up taking a rain check on our scheduled date and opted for a cozy night at home, which was a great decision. We caught up on our new favorite show and fell asleep on the couch, making it a 10 out of 10 night!

On Sunday after church we headed to our go-to brunch spot for iced coffee and burritos and then headed home for naps, laundry, and prep for the week. Truly, it was such a low key weekend, but in a really great way. Although now that I’m typing it out… it sounds a bit boring, but I’m a fan of boring!

Okay, now that I’ve totally caught you up on our weekend, let’s get into the five things I’m loving right now…

5 Things I’m Loving

A few new obsessions…


Perfect End-of-summer Caftan

Oh, I love this a lot! This just feels like the perfect dress you can wear through the end of summer, but then also into fall with a pair of ballet flats. I already have it added to my cart!

The Happiest Linens

I came across these linens from Pomegranate and they stopped me in my tracks. SO gorgeous and so many other beautiful things in the shop! I literally want everything.

Beaded Friendship Necklaces for two

Stop! Are you kidding me?! These are adorable and would make the sweetest, most thoughtful gift for a girlfriend or mom and daughter duo. Such a fun Etsy find!

Handcrafted Music Box

I was targeted an ad for this sweet music box on Friday morning, immediately forwarded it to Ryan… and he responded: “Order it!” So I did, and actually I ordered two (the other for a gift). It’s just the sweetest thing I’ve ever seen! And especially since both of my grandfathers AND parents worked at NASA. My parents actually met while bonding tiles on the Space Shuttle… so we love all things space around here.

I live for green

I love these little green ballet flats and I *really* love the price! I think they are adorable by themselves, but I also they would be really fun to order and DYI monogram… similar to this, don’t you think?! I feel a crafting session coming on!
