Nashville for the Weekend

On Friday morning I flew out to Nashville to meet Carly for a fun girls’ weekend and to attend Pencil Paper Co.’s Creative Camp.

I’ve been a longtime fan of Gen, from PandP Co. and, truthfully, wanted a good excuse to go to the conference, so Carly and I decided to just make a fun weekend out of it… and I’m so glad we did! 

The conference was amazing. We met so many new friends, sipped bubbly, and stayed up waaaay past our bedtime talking each night. When I left on Sunday morning I kept thinking, we should do this more often! 

But I will say I was so thrilled to get home on Sunday afternoon. Ryan’s entire immediate family is in town (siblings, spouses, and kids), and I was ready to see all 29 of them! I flew in to town just in time for family photos on Sunday night and it was nuts, in the best way possible! 

Such a wonderful weekend! 

5 Things I'm Loving

The Cutest Tote

At the conference this weekend every attendee was given one of these adorable Pencil Paper Co. totes, and guys, I LOVE mine. It was the perfect carryon bag (although, it didn’t quite fit under my seat) sturdy, roomy, and adorable.

Plush Jacket

We’ve officially entered into cozy season and I’m here for it. In Nashville over the weekend I kept thinking I wish I had brought something like this with me! Adorable, colorful, and most of all COZY! 

*P.S. It’s on sale and comes in 3 colors

Painted Oyster Ornaments

How pretty are these blue and white ornaments made from oyster shells dipped in gold?! I’m kind of an ornament freak and these have my name written all over them!

Sparkle Flats

I bought a version of these shoes (mine have a back) last year, and I seriously LOVE them. They are incredibly comfortable and seem to go with everything. This year’s version is just as adorable and they now come in a bunch of colors!
