Hello, hello! I hope your Friday is off to a fabulous start!
I am hopping on the “Friday Favorites” bandwagon and blogging about mine this week. Here are some of the things I’m loving lately!
Mal and I are still planning to remodel our house (probably next summer), so we’re gathering ideas for the addition. We also want to redo our sun porch, which is just plain ol’ ugly, so we’ve been playing around with Houzz, a remodeling/home design website with literally millions of absolutely gorgeous and even breathtaking photos on it. You can also search the images by room, style, and location (Boston/Cape Cod versus Albuquerque dÃ©cor). And you can pin everything to Pinterest!
I saw this quote written on the back window of a car the other day, and I thought it was so cute: “Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend, never had a dog.”
I think it would be even better if it said this:
Pugs are special little creatures.
BIC Bands deal
Sandy at BIC Bands is offering 15% off all regular priced BIC Bands (excludes sale items) with code “CNC15,” The code is only good until Sunday at midnight (EST), so be sure to hop on it!
If you’ve never heard of Stitch Fix, it is a personal styling service. You fill out your profile online, which includes a bunch of questions about your style and size preferences, and then Stitch Fix sends you a package of goodies (5 pieces) to try on at home. Every package is different and hand-picked based on your preferences. You try everything on, decide what you want to keep, and then send back what you don’t want.
For people like me, who can’t dress themselves, Stitch Fix is the greatest service ever. They sent me a bunch of pieces that I wouldn’t normally buy for myself. I typically buy the same old boring pieces over and over again, so Stitch Fix is pushing me out of my comfort zone to try new (in style) clothing and accessories. I’ll blog about my new pieces soon””still trying to make up my mind!
Living in the suburbs
Ok, this one is kind of random, but I realized I actually enjoy living in the suburbs. I always thought I was a city girl and wasn’t a fan of moving out of Boston when we first bought our house, but my opinion has definitely changed. Things just seem more relaxed and low-key out here. And I love that I never need to worry about where I’m going to park my car!
Athleta Batwing & Robin Jacket
Athleta sent me a gift card to try some of their clothing, and the second I stepped into the Newbury Street store, I fell in love with their Batwing & Robin Jacket. How adorable is this jacket? I know I’m going to wear it a lot this fall. It is so comfy and cozy and totally flattering. Love it.
Theo Salted Almond Dark Chocolate
The other day, my sister-in-law bought this bar for Mal and me, and, holy goodness, it’s delicious. It’s definitely one of my favorites!
Murphy’s reaction to his new poop bags.
This photo cracks me up so much! I bought poop bags for Murphy at Marshalls the other day, and the girly ones with little hearts on them were way cheaper than the other (more manly) varieties, so I bought them. When I showed them to Murphy, he wasn’t thrilled at all with my selection. His annoyed expression says it all. Haha!
Chocolate chip cookies
I know I just blogged about these gluten-free and egg-free chocolate chip cookies yesterday, but I’m really loving them. I ate a couple of them along with an iced chia tea latte a little awhile ago… holy yum, what a delicious Friday afternoon treat!
