What’s up, weekend 3/30

– Posted in: featured

Good morning, and happy weekend, dollfaces! Hope everyone had a nice week—I’m ready to see it end, personally… it wasn’t bad by any means, just long and I’m sleepy and stabby today. Please remember to show some love to Lindsay and Chrissy and leave your link below—we’d love to have you! On to the grateful list, shall we?

Mom/daughter date with my momma. We had Indian for lunch and she treated me to some new pajamas for my birthday. My mom is the best mom <3

Stepping into Parcel, a beautiful vintage shop in Montclair and chatting with the shopkeeper about running a small business, the community of Montclair, Instagram, having kids, and so much more. It was truly a delightful experience and walking in her store was like stepping back in time

Vegan dinner at a new place in Maplewood, NJ (their owner is clearly a Phish fan because I saw several secret references on the menu!)

A phone call to get pre-approved for a mortgage. We are taking the first steps and it is unbelievably scary but keep your fingers crossed!

All the wine and all the pita a girl could eat with my wonderful Aussie blog friend Bashfully Bold. She’s a hoot and we always have a great time together

Text messages with pictures of Buster (he’s with his other poppa and doing so much better!)

Rice cakes with almond butter

Walking instead of driving to get around

Stay tuned, my sweet ones… I’m going to be announcing a really big birthday giveaway on Monday with moolah so you can update your spring wardrobe, an adorable headband by a socially-conscious brand called Della LA, vegan nail polish in cute spring colors by Piggy Paint, an amazing all-natural caffeine product called Pure Lyft, and this adorable tote from Charming Charlie.

Hope everyone has a beautiful weekend! Much love, you guys.

The shop you stopped in looks adorable! I love whimsical places like that! And I feel you on the week, I kind of had the same type of week. I’m pretty jazzed it’s Friday! I hope you have a great weekend darling!

Sounds like an amazing week, Charlotte! Great food, company and lots going on at the blog. That last one was a good one (they’re all good ones!). New pajamas? My favorite thing is new PJ’s!! Glad Buster is doing better. That store looks so cool, I will check out that link. OMG, that hand bag is soooo cute!! Have a great weekend xoxo

I’m sorry you had a “blah” week of sorts. I’m glad it’s the weekend now – hopefully it will be great. Yay for mother/daughter dates. I love hanging out with my mom.

That tote is too cute. I have a mini crossbody Penguin purse from Charming Charlie and I adore it!

Rice cakes with almond butter sounds really good. I usually put salsa on them.

I love that bag! I’ve seen that store before, but never stopped in. I love hanging out with my mom too. And first step in getting a mortgage!!!! That’s a huge step. If you ever have any questions, my husband is a real estate agent, so he’ll help you out.

Chrissy March 31, 2017, 3:20 PM

Sounds like a wonderful week! I am more than ready to see it go, as well.
Getting pre-approved!! Awesome! How exciting!
Indian lunch with your mom! Sounds delish!
Did I miss your birthday? Or is it coming up! Gosh, I guess I have some catching up to do!
Happy weekend, sweetie! Hugs xxx

Happy Friday, love! The buying process is so scary and so exciting! I love having a space that’s ours.

And I totally miss being able to walk everywhere!

Tamara March 31, 2017, 3:40 PM

Mortgages are exciting! (and terrifying) And secret Phish references are special. We have a cafe out here who makes secret political statements in her daily breakfast specials. I love that.
I’ll be tuning in Monday!

Woot! TGIF… and congrats on getting the ball rolling on house hunting 🙂 That’s exciting!

Parcel looks like such a cool store!

Lindsay March 31, 2017, 10:00 PM

Take a picture, when do you actually see me writing ON the day you’ve written the post? Rarely. LOL Happy Friday babes!! 🙂

Aren’t mom’s the best? 🙂
Good luck on getting pre-approved. That is very exciting and stressful, but I’m sure all will be good. Sending you good juju.

I also can’t wait to hear more about your birthday bash giveaway, how awesome is that?!

And that bag, I feel like that’s SO YOU. 😉

Love you momma, have a lovely weekend. XOXOX

Best of luck on the mortgage process! It can be stressful but soooo worth it 🙂

Love the bag. And walking instead of driving. We’re a lot alike!

Penny Struebig April 1, 2017, 9:25 AM

The giveaway sounds amazing! I’ll definitely be back to check it out. Have a great weekend!
