Thoughts on a Thursday :: Hey There

Hey there friends, it's been a bit since I've done a hey there post where I write quick notes to misc places/things/topics/whatevers, and so I'm going to write a quick one today for this link-up.

hey there, work
things are going really well, staying busy and climbing to meet my goals. However, this week I am struggling to stay on task and be motivated.

Weekend Vibes -- Couples Shower + family time

Happy Wednesday- it's mid-week but I'm here with a weekend re-cap. This was a good one!

I started out by having happy hour on Friday at a new place in town - Westport Social. It's a great space --very industrial/modern & so many games. The food & drink selection is also a win. We kept it simple with nachos + craft beer.

Saturday was one of my best gal's bridal shower -- she opted for a low-key couples shower and we had a great afternoon/evening of hanging out, playing games and showering the couple.
When we had invites made for the shower we also had the designer make a snapchat filter to use for the shower that matched the invites. Love how it all turned out!

Happy heavenly birthday, bud

Happy heavenly birthday, Stephen. That's what Mom has taken to calling it this year. She even mailed me a card with some goodies and even scattered joy to your pals. She has such a way of turning tears into smiles. She is truly an angel here on earth. I don't know how she finds the energy to remain so selfless and thoughtful amongst all of her own sadness and pain, but I am truly thankful God blessed us with her.

Man, how I wish so much that things were different. I'll never understand or fully grasp that this is our reality..some days it's okay and others it's unbearable. What I wouldn't give to spend some time with your goofy smiling, tall 6'8 self for a little bit. This picture certainly embodies that goofy smile + laugh of yours. Love you.

4 years.

New in the Lou -- Issue 5

I love supporting local and checking out new spots in my city - restaurants, breweries, shops, or events. As you would expect, the New in the Lou series is one to showcase new or coming soon spots in St. Louis & the surrounding area. Today's features are both in St. Charles County.

1. Third Wheel Brewing
This is a new brewery to the St. Peters area. I personally love to see all the craft beer coming to the St. Charles County market! This is a place I haven't been to yet and want to try! They have their beer list posted on their Facebook page & have a food selection too!
I'd like to hit up one of their bluegrass Sundays  they are always posting events, so keep an eye on their page. I just feel like when it comes to branding & events this place is doing it right. Can't wait to try their beer.

2. Happy Camper Clothing
They recently opened a charming shop full of their tees & products. The back room has a cute tablescape set up and they also sell a variety of items from other local makers - including Three Sheep Shack (you can peek some product of ours here). I want this tee & how cute is their camper they take to markets?!

Friday Best - Out of Office

Happy Friday! Technically yesterday was the "Friday" of my work week and I'm off to the Lake to celebrate Emily's bachelorette weekend! What better way to soak up the last days of Summer than with a weekend on the water with a group of pals?! So, I'll keep things quick and re-cap a few quick tid-bits about my week ::

best plans :: obviously my lake plans -- boating, pool days, mexican & bbq grub, and I plan to snag some Mother's beer while I'm there because it's not distributed in the Lou.

best walk :: me at the Cattleman went on a long, evening walk this week and spotted so many deer near the path (5+). These days with fall feeling temps are the best for walks!

best new listing :: we got the Grace Scarf live in the Shack this week & I think I'm going to need to add one to my closet to pair with flannels or graphic tees. We named it after our word of 2017 -- Grace

best previous lake posts :: emily, abbey and I will be reunited on this same trip and had such a good time when we went to abbey's lake condo 2 summers ago!

best reminder :: 
Success doesn't come from what you do occasionally. Success comes from what you do consistently.

best bootie :: you guys need these in your life. I added a few shop options since I know sizes are limited from store to store. I got mine on sale at Nordstrom in the neutral color and they are so so comfy!
