Here is just a peek at what I was up to this weekend…
Photo 1: Patriotic Breakfast
We woke up Saturday morning and all I could think about was blueberry pancakes… had. to. have. them. After our morning bike ride to our favorite local spot to pick up hot lattes (one of our Saturday traditions!), we came back and whipped up an all American breakfast. Nothing says Happy 4th of July like pancakes, eggs, and bacon!
Photo 2: A Fancy 4th of July
On Saturday night we got all gussied up in our best red, white, and blue and headed down town to our favorite restaurant, Hillstone! Since most of our family was out of town for the weekend, we did the 4th of July all fancy like and invited a few friends out for dinner, drinks, and fireworks on the lake. We had THE best time enjoying each other’s company, and getting the chance to watch six, S-I-X, firework shows happen simultaneously around the lake! It was magical to say the least!
Over the weekend, my husband’s business partner sent us a case of Wicked Good Cupcakes, and holy goodness they were amazing. First off, who doesn’t like to recieve cupcakes in the mail? No. one. That’s who. So this was already a win! And second, let’s be real… this jar is empty. It was THAT good I couldn’t even take a photo of it fast enough. If I were you I would send yourself and your bestie a box of Wicked Good Cupcakes ASAP.

Hope your weekend was equally as lovely, but for now I am off to go get this week started! Cheers to an extra fabulous and productive week!!
Good morning and Happy Friday to you! Today I’m so excited to share with you a new blog series, “On The List.” At the beginning of every month, we will put together a little To Buy, To Do, To Watch, To Listen, To Wear, To Eat, To Go list for you! I am always interested in my girlfriends’ “lists”, so I thought I’d make one for you!
To Find: My best girlfriend received a record player for her birthday last month and ever since then, I have been obsessive over them. I have a serious case of “I want one too-s”. Also, as a side note, yes I want the Clueless Soundtrack on Vinyl… do not judge me.
On Saturday mornings, I like to wake up and stay in my pajamas as loooooong as I possibly can. There is nothing more relaxing than sipping hot coffee while scrolling through Pinterest, with a fluffy dog on your lap, all the while in your pajamas. I am convinced that is what heaven will feel like. Since my love for a good set of pajamas is real, I try to scoop up a new pair every now and then! When I spotted Rebecca Peace’s line of classic PJs, I got really excited because they were both feminine and comfortable. Don’t get me wrong: I love, LOVE, a good pair of sweatpants, but it’s nice to feel fancy every now and again…so that is where my Rebecca Peace PJs come in!
Good morning! Today I wanted to share with you one of my new and very favorite afternoon pick-me-ups: Coconut Iced Coffee. A few weeks ago, I went to lunch with one of my best gal pals; when I arrived, she had already ordered me an Coconut Iced Coffee, to which I looked at her and said…. “Thank you! But I don’t like iced coffee.” She looked straight at me and said, “Ashley, you will like this Iced Coffee… I know you.” And of course, she was right. I am historically not a fan of iced coffee because I don’t love cold milk and I don’t like sugary sweet drinks, but this was neither!
Let’s just call it like it is: this coffee changed my life. I have since then perfected my very own version of this coconut-y goodness so I wouldn’t have to drive 45 mins. and spend $6.00 every afternoon… because, let’s be real, I was thinking about moving to be closer to this magical concoction. Here is my recipe for happiness in a cup! Also, just an FYI, it’s much better in our Hello Sunshine tumbler. Seriously, I did not make that up. #provenfact
