Birthday Week

It's birthday week over here!!! On Wednesday I turn the big 3 - 0 and will be celebrating in Mexico with my man. We are both first timers to Mexico and the all-inclusive travel scene. We are so excited and only have one work day this week, which makes for a not-so-bad-Monday.

This past weekend we went out to Westport Social for live music, drinks and fun. My pal got me this adorable cake! They charge $25 to bring in cakes (yipes) so we chose to enjoy it later on. She told him to put the candles in, sing happy birthday and record it to send to her. And he did it. It was adorable. I also have a birthday tank top to wear in Mexico and a fun coozie - I'll be sure to share some pics. I plan to be pretty unplugged and enjoy my vacation so I will catch you around next week!

I have some posts drafted for 30 year goals & reflecting back on my 20's - I'll share those when I get back! For now, here is a look back at year 29.

Saturday Shopping

Let's talk about a mish-mosh of things today, yes? I have 3 different categories of things I've been eyeing lately. Happy shopping!

I'd like a fun, bright pair of earrings for my trip -- here's what I am eyeing from Charming Charlie
Some necklaces from target I'd like to have

I want new brown, riding boots for this season and pulled the trigger on the first pair for DSW and got them for a steal with coupons

And a few Fall basics

Friday Best -- Friday the 13th

Happy Friday the 13th friends! Anything spooky on the books for you today? I personally love the number 13  & here's why.
This weekend I am kicking things off with a typical work day (well except that we started the day with bloody marys to celebrate a work anniversary). Tonight the Cattleman & I have dinner with another couple for an early birthday celebration! Saturday =  an all day fundraising event that I am looking forward to - it's going to be sunny & 80! On Sunday there is a  sausage dinner in my hometown that my mom & I will have a space set up for our shop -  Three Sheep Shack. We keep things simple on the set up but I've been having fun gathering some new items and inspiration for the set up.

Summer Story // 2017

We are fully into Fall &  I wanted to take a minute to reflect back on the goodness that was packed into my Summer of 17.
This past Summer has felt full, in the very best way -- full of adventure, of leisurely days, of soaking up sunshine, of events, of celebrations, of country drives, of boating, of fishing, of family gatherings, of date nights, of all the good stuff.

1 week until Mexico

The Cattleman & I get to leave reality behind and wake up to these views everyday in exactly one week! We are so excited for this adventure, to celebrate my 30th and to have time away soaking up the sun! I wanted to share a few resort pics today.

Friday Best -Rambles + 1st of October

Hey folks! How stunning is this tablescape? It makes me want to host a little harvest dinner. I have a table just like this on my back patio! So now onto Friday - I'm sipping an iced coffee, wearing what I know will be a go-to Fall outfit, leaving work at noon, heading to pick up my Cattleman and then we are off to a weekend away for  Emily +Michael's wedding.  How cute is her parents' farm where the wedding will be held?! Looking forward to a weekend of celebrating!
