Hello Monday!

I have a feeling this is going to be a very Monday, Monday, which honestly isn’t a bad thing because I really love a good Monday! I’m a sucker for a fresh start, a pot of coffee, and a to-do list as long as a CVS receipt. Mondays are my favorite, but after being on vacation for the last 7 days and already repacking for a work trip to Atlanta tomorrow, we’ve got a LOT to cram in… so buckle up, friends and let’s get started!

P.S. Have you checked out July’s Book Club selection yet?! It’s a good one! 


5 Things I’m Loving:

Crochet Bag

I carried this bag pretty much my entire trip last week (see here & here) and I couldn’t love it any more! It hold TONS and is so pretty. I even got a handful of complements on it while strolling through town. Such a fun Summer find.

The Road Back to You

Ryan and I finished The Road Back to You on audio during our road trip to Georgia and honestly, if you haven’t read, it I can’t recommend it enough. I feel like I learned SO MUCH about myself and Ryan, too. Plus it was fun to really dive into our numbers. I’m a 3 with a 2 wing and Ryan’s a 1 with a 9 wing! Have you taken the Enneagram Test yet?

Ryan and I are OBSESSED with NPR’s podcast, How I Built This, and always save up episodes for our road trips. On our way home from Georgia we listened to the Allbird episode and it was so good and inspiring, plus it totally convinced me to order a pair… now I just have to pick a color! Have you tried them yet? My mom and dad swear by them!

Sports Bra

Yesterday I cleaned out my workout clothes and y’all, they’re in a dire state. Most of my sports bras are from Target in 2008 when they had a sports bra sale and I bought 4 of them, ha! 11 years later, I think it may be time for an upgrade! After a hard look at the reality, I did a little online browsing and found these. So cute and under $4o! Think I may have to pull the trigger.

Tanning Lotion

I have never in my life gotten a spray tan or used any sort of “tanning” product…Except that one time I tried a gradual tanning lotion years ago and it left me very streaky. Truthfully, I’m one with the state of my fair skin, but I’d be lying if I didn’t say it would be nice to have a teeny bit of color on my legs! My friend Meghan has been raving about this stuff so I’m thinking I might give it a whirl! It’s supposed to be very subtle and not at all orange. Have you tried it? I think I just might.

  1. Hope you get the tanning lotion and love it! Used it again this week in preparation for Nantucket and was once again amazed at how well it works and leaves a natural glow!

  2. I have a pair of the Wool Runners in blush pink and LOVE them! I was super hesitant because I never wear sneakers but once Allbirds introduces the blush pink, I just went for it and my only regret is not ordering them sooner. I wear them without socks and they were super comfy and kept my feet warm. I’ll be ordering a pair of Tree Runners to get me through the summer until it’s cool enough to bring out my wool Allbirds.
